being responsible

Hey gang, fro here! I was on my other social media sites and a friend of mines put up a statement that i thought was particularly interesting. Basically it said that just because you are honest in putting something out in the atmosphere with or involving someone does not give you the right to be irresponsible morally. Can’t speak for any one but myself but i thought this was on point!! I think sometimes things gets misconstrued for being ok to do just because someone was honest about what they were doing. Some may agree with this some may not. For me however, I certainly feel that you should be responsible morally or in your beliefs. I feel that you should be prepared to deal with any backlash or criticism that comes along with acting irresponsible rather you put it out there or not. Most importantly, I would say be careful out there people and make sure you utilize the golden rule…do unto others as you would want done to you! Honesty is the best policy but being responsible on top of that honesty is even better!! think on that..

check yourself

Hey gang, Fro here! I’ve been reflecting on some things and as I pondered on things I thought to myself, every now and then we need to check ourselves. Sometimes we can get so caught up that we don’t stop to question “what am I doing and why?” I think sometimes we have good intentions and it doesn’t always play out that way. Sometimes what we think is right is all good when in reality it can be destructive. Perhaps this is why we continue to endure some of the same cycles in life. Eh, only time, experience, and wisdom will tell us that. Anyways, I just challenge everyone, myself included, to really see what’s going on internal and address the issues at hand. I’m sure we can all be better and should be open to constructive criticism. Ponder on that.

Get out your feelings!

Hey gang, Fro here.  I realize that we have been some time with out giving you guys something to read up on! It has been an interesting past few months!  I have completed my first year of graduate school! woot woot! go me! It was not easy last semester but, we have come out on the other side! Anyways enough about me on to share some thoughts!

You ever experience a time or a situation where you really had something on your mind but you never expressed it? Some people choose not to because they are scared, they are uncertain of their feelings, or maybe even afraid of another person’s reaction. Lately, I have been dealing with this issue personally. From what I have been experiencing I want to encourage anyone out there to get things off your chest! Now don’t you all go out saying “Fro said just get it off!” There is a way to do everything. I especially think you should take time to consider your words and your demeanor when talking your feelings over with another person. I say this because what I have learned from these experiences has shown me that my feelings tend to eat me alive, left unchecked. Chances are, I’m probably not the only one who gets this way. It can be very difficult, especially if you have something hard to say. However, you need to get out your feelings! lol ponder on that.

Love

Well with this month being the official month of love, I felt like i should write something about it. Personally, I am not super pumped about it but I must say we should all show love to our family, friends, and other loved ones. I 100 percent agree that Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud  or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged.  It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out.  Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. I don’t believe that you have to be a bible believer per say  to accept and do such things in the name of love. I admit that as I evaluate myself I have not always done these things and yet called it love. I am encouraging everyone, myself included, to treat others with this type of love. If we say we really love someone, regardless of who, it should be for real. It should never be taken lightly or thrown around. In saying it we should back it up with actions that can justify the statement. Mean what you say and say what you mean. Lastly, treat others like you would want to be treated. Ponder on that.

laughter is good medicine!

Sometimes you just have to laugh at things. Life. Situations. People. People say laughter is good for the soul and I think that is pretty true! If  you are feeling down or just need a good pick me up…find something to laugh about! I had to laugh at myself yesterday because the bass in my headphones are so deep i thought someone was tapping me on my back while i was cleaning! I ended up knocking things over trying to turn around! Silly, I know but it gave me a laugh that i really needed. I fell in class trying to fix my seat! It gave my classmates a laugh they needed! Point is, sometimes you just need to laugh! Ponder on that.

Friends, how many of us have them?

I was talking with a friend of mine today and she said to me “you shouldn’t treat your old friends badly for the sake of new ones” As I marinated on that, I thought to myself I have done this to some degree. I am not saying I am proud of it, but I am admitted that it occurred. One of my other good friends, best friend in fact, said to me that every time I am REALLY into a guy, she can expect that I will spend less time hanging out with her. She says this is just how I am and have always been that way. In coming to terms with that realization, I don’t want to be the person who forgets about the ones who were there before the guys. I also wouldn’t want to be the one forgotten if it were reverse. All in all we may say that we wouldn’t do such things but our actions always prove what we are really saying. I can’t speak for anyone else, but as for me, I don’t want to sacrifice my friends or treat them wrong for the sake of new people. As was also said to me “we make time for things that are important”, this is no different. I encourage myself, as well as, everyone who happens to read this to take time to be with all of your friends. Of course that said within reason. Sometimes we can’t always be available but we should never be outright neglectful. Ponder on that.

Figure it out

As I went through my day today, I kept hearing the saying “you make time for what’s important”. I kept thinking on that and came to the realization that sometimes I have a tendency to make too much time for some things and not enough time for others.  So as I let that sink in and start to deal with some things personally, I encourage everyone to have a self check. Are you letting some things become too important?  Is there something that you should or want to devote more time to? Spirituality? School? Friends? Family? Ponder on that.
