rip bobbi kristina.

It wasn't the news that Bobbi Kristina Brown's family wanted to hear. On Wednesday, four days after the 21-year-old was found unresponsive in her home, a doctor told her family that nothing more could be done. "Everyone is coming to the hospital to say goodbye," says a family member. Bobbi, daughter of singers Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, was discovered face down in a tub full of water at her Roswell home on Saturday 1/31/15 by her boyfriend Nick Gordon and a friend, Maxwell Lomas. Bobbi, 21, was not breathing and had no heart rate when emergency personnel arrived at her townhouse. A police report described Bobbi’s condition as “drowned” and in cardiac arrest (no heartbeat). Emergency personnel restarted Bobbi’s heart and transported her to North Fulton Hospital, where she was on life support and brain dead. According to media reports, Gordon was forcibly removed from Bobbi’s bedside at North Fulton hospital on Saturday. Bobbi’s aunt, Pat Houston, notified police of a previously filed restraining order against Gordon, and police removed him from ...

do you hate love?

Love and commitment takes work. A lot of work. And I hate working. Would it be awful of me to say that I’m glad I am not in a relationship because of the work and the stress (and the good stuff) that will come with it? I guess I’m not ready for one, but at the same time, I don’t want one either. I’m happy being single. In fact, I've been celibate for 10 months, so I can see myself being single for a real long time until I find the right man for me. And when I do, I’m sure I’ll be more ready and more willing to put in the effort. However, right now, I’m content at where I’m at in life. Then again, I've always been a bit of a loner, so yeah. And don't try to shade me. I'm not an "angry bitter black woman trying to front like she don't need a man". I would LOVE to have a juicy man in my arms right now. But at the ...

detox your life.

Be honest. Did you have a slow start to your New Years for 2014? Taking you a bit to get back in the swing of things? No worries, it is never too late to take control of your life. In the beginning of the New Year I like to start by detoxing my life for the first few couple of months. It makes for healthy habits throughout the year. I will clean up my eating habits, spring clean my home, stimulate my mental health, get my finances in order, and re-evaluate the people in my life. I am a firm believer that you need to clean your life from the inside out to live a healthy lifestyle. What is detoxing? Detoxing is the process of removing impurities from the body. The premise of cleansing the body came from the Ancient Egyptians and Greeks in which foods consumed can produce toxins in the body. They believed in cleansing the body in many different ways to get rid of them. Science later supported that this ...

how to forgive someone.

People always ask me "What do I do if they cheated on me?" As far as I'm concerned, I've never been cheated on. So I do not know how to approach the situation. However, I found a blog by Dale P. that shows how you can forgive someone that cheated or betrayed you: In 2008, I was in a relationship with a girl in Southern California. We had been dating for about 2 years and had even started attending church together every Sunday. I was close with her family and friends and our relationship was getting quite serious. While she was on a 60 day trip overseas, I received a call from an acquaintance alerting me of some hurtful news. He had heard that my girlfriend had cheated on me with my best friend. Shocked and confused, I made an immediate international phone call to ask her myself. It was true. I dropped down to my knees and felt like throwing up. I hung up the phone, hopped in my car, and cried. As the days and weeks went ...

single, celibacy, and cobwebs.

I'm one of those people that believe you're not supposed to die alone. Not supposed to die without companionship. Without love. I used to fake empower myself and make it seem like it's sooooo wonderful to be single and to be able to have sex with anyone I want. No. Being single is fun sometimes, but not all of the time. I don't ever believe people when they say "I love being single" "I'm fine with never getting married" "My pillow is better than a mate" In what world? My opinion: I think people that say these things are just putting up a guard. They don't want to appear sad, lonely, rejected or desperate. I have done a lot of soul searching lately and I have come to a conclusion. I am waiting until I am in a committed relationship before I decide to have sex again. I've done this a couple of years ago and it worked very well for me. I've been doing it for 6 months thus far. I'm waiting for ...
