I've made some mistakes in life, regrets and revisitation is always allowed. Ownership is a very worthy attribute. The ability to be a good listener is where the education begins. We all have our own opinions ideas, and design. No two people are the same. In friendship the bond is there because of similarity and interests. Disagreements happen in unions, it can be the deal breaker in a marriage dissolval. Review the situation, fully understand your role and the part that you added to the fire. Personal relationships can be long, and in truth some people are put into your path, to be temporary stumbling blocks, to help build your character, some are there for the long haul. Through it all love and respect has to be in place and it has to be mutual adoration.
Apologizing for the same wrong over and over again, is redundant and little remorse is illustrated, your actions shine through. The first time forgiveness can be allowed, but if a negative behavior continues, you bring more guilt to the situation, by accepting the dysfunction. We long for melancholy moments of a perfect world, in a time when the work was much easier, and life was on an easy breezy path. Those days were a 'charmed life'. The longer that we allowed with the gift called life, the more situational it gets. Theory teaches that we live to tell of the journey, and the wisdom is meant to be shared. Realizing that perfection is a flawed fantasy. Mistakes are not to keep us stagnated, regret comes if you do not realize that no one is right in every exchange, and finding yourself on the wrong side of right, speaks to your ability to be human. A simple apology can go a long way, it starts with humility.

The legendary artist known as Prince is gracing the cover of the June 2014 issue of Essence,
Under a new agreement with his old label Warner Bros., Prince dished on whether he will work with his band The Revolution again and dealing with record label execs that who would rather take long vacations over working.
On working with The Revolution:
“I’m not putting down The Revolution, even though people would love to see us together again. I owe a great debt to them. But I’m doing something else...”
On record execs:
"Every time I talk to the heads of large companies, they're always at the beach," said Prince. "Middle of the afternoon. What are you doing? 'Oh, I'm at the beach with my kids.' So we're working to send their kids to college. And to the beach. We're not supposed to accept that."
Prince also released a statement recently, revealing he’s working on a new studio album saying,
"A brand new studio album is on the way and both Warner Bros. Records and Eye are quite pleased with the results of the negotiations and look forward to a fruitful working relationship," Prince said in a statement.
The Purple One will be headling at the 20th anniversary ESSENCE Festival in New Orleans for the 4th of July.

Shawn "Jay Z" Carter, former Def Jam president, signed Rihanna back in 2005. Even after the Hip-Hop mogul left his role and started Roc Nation, the Barbadian princess remained at Def Jam and released seven albums under the label.
A lot has changed at Def Jam, since. Former CEO Barry Weiss stepped down earlier this year, which led to corporate parent Universal Music Group dissolving the company into three separate record labels: Def Jam, Island, and Motown. The latter has ultimately resulted in Rihanna leaving to join Roc Nation, whose team has been managing her since October 2010.
Riri's updated profile onRocNation.com indicates she's not only being managed by them, but fully housed. Though her publicist have yet to speak out, sources close to the singer confirmed that Rihanna is now a Roc Nation artist, signed to both the label and its management company.
It's safe to say the Unapologetic songstress is a major asset as the label's new biggest star. Why the news is being kept under wraps? We have no idea. The only thing left to do is wait for Rihanna's inaugural Roc nation release.

We progress from struggle, the beautiful days and beautiful nights, are what life treats us with 'Sunny Skies', and on occasion some rain must fall. We weather the storms, as truth is always in the silver lining. God blesses each and everyone of us, no favor is shown greater to one and not the other, we are the recipients to his throne, beauty, mercy and his grace. Actuality reveals what we are gifted with the inner strength that we possess. Its often confusing to see, because we tend to question, more that we accept freely. Its about believing what you are deserving of. The burden and the toll will be of no more than we can bare. Heaven is a lifetime away, yet we see remnants of it daily, its in the landscaping.
Let's break bread, fellowship and share in the exchange, of privilege and the chosen life that we are afforded. No mistakes, everything is purposeful, even when its not visibly apparent. Loving your fellow man, thats the rightful passage, we must be dedicated to what has already been written for us, long before our arrival. You were chosen, the selected one, it was not by mistake. Your contribution has its rewards, but it is never about what you will gain, its about what you take away from the experience, to share what you have learned. Thats living in the moment of the journey, its life at its finest, its how you live it, its not perception, its in the gifting and presentation that you leave with others. Remember that our creator is always watching, so let your words reflect from a genuine place and tone.
What Are You Doing With Your Life?
