GLITTER AND MAKING IT HAPPEN




Hello lovies,

Hope your week has been fine. Mine has been quite okay; am trying to get through to me somehow. ‘I am making peace with my past, my present and looking forward to the future. Being that kind of girl that cries for no reason and laughs at awkward moments (weirdo; tell me about it), I need to keep myself in check sometimes. Any who I realize that no matter how uncertain life gets, we should always put our best foot forward because there is no manual that explains where we are headed.

Okay. So last night I got to watch Glitter the movie’ starring MC (Miss Mariah Carey) . It’s an oldie , can’t believe I never got around to see it. Actually it was pretty okay despite the whack ratings. MC’s voice (God knows she gave her a gold mine) has taken her places…places she could not even have dreamt off.  I really loves me some rags to riches stories,they inspire the hell out of anyone whose got a dream and needs to trust and believe that the sun will someday shine. 

Let me quote MC in one of her songs ‘Make it Happen ‘ she says ‘If you believe in yourself enough and know what you want; you’re gonna make it happen ‘…such words right.This is one of my all time favorites from her many hits. She lays it out: know what you want, keep pushing and praying for it. What more can anyone do. Just keep the faith and work for what you want. It's just figuring out what you truly want that makes it hard to get started.She's got so many songs that help keep the faith.

On matters fash; I had this pictures taken some months back but never really got to share them here on the blog’ My lovely mommy took them (bless her). Color splashes are my thing…so I figured; throw three fierce shades and twerk(lol)the yellow pants were from a splurge last year, looking to sell them so inbox me if you like them on facebook.











MAKE IT HAPPEN: MARIAH CAREY

Not more than three short years ago
I was abandoned and alone
Without a penny to my name
So very young and so afraid
No proper shoes upon my feet
Sometimes I couldn't even eat
I often cried myself to sleep
But still I had to keep on going
Never knowing if I could take it
If I would make it through the night
I held on to my faith
I struggled and I prayed
And now I've found my way

[Chorus:]
If you believe in yourself enough
And know what you want
You're gonna make it happen
Make it happen
And if you get down on your knees at night
And pray to the Lord
He's gonna make it happen
Make it happen

I know life can be so tough
And you feel like giving up
But you must be strong
Baby just hold on
You'll never find the answers
If you throw your life away
I used to feel the way you do
Still I had to keep on going
Never knowing if I could take it
If I would make it through the night
I held on to my faith
I struggled and I prayed
And now I've finally found my way

[Chorus]

I once was lost
But now I'm found
I got my feet

On solid ground
Thank you Lord
If you believe
Within your soul
Just hold on tight
And don't let go
You can make it
Make it happen

P/S touching comment from Make it Happen...had to share'

"I remember when this song came out. It was 3 yrs. after a very rough time in my life when I was staying with different friends every night because I had no home of my own - and at 18 yrs. old. I even went hungry a few times because of lack of money. 3 yrs. later, I was living on the other side of the country driving my own car, living with my boyfriend (who later became my husband and we've been happily married for 13 yrs. now!!) and heard this song. I had tears in my eyes and was amazed at how far I came in those 3 yrs. - just like the beginning of this song. I was thankful to have everything that I had (I still am) and this song really hit home. Thank you Mariah - for a song so encouraging. It is such an inspiration and has meant the world to me. I have even shown my children your song and your voice is such a gift. Thank you!!!"
