Sister Proverbs31Woman Needing a break is real. Taking a break from reality is not all good. When you look again or wake up the next day rent is still daunting and due. Drinking to relax, but that response and means of coping lead more folks to drugs and alcohol. Football all weekend is a distraction. I know guys that do all weekend...48 hours eaten away never to be available again. The game announcer is being proactive and being paid, the players too. The razzle dazzle...of the magician is meant to distract and it does. Looking at reality, we dont do that well. An honest look is scary to see. An honest look at some things that are happening in this world can cause heart ache... so we glance it. Speak out on it, in frustration maybe. Without actually looking squarely at its magnitude. It may not be as big as it first appeared. A solution cant come to mind unless the issue is studied and analyzed. a solution, or partial solution may pop in mind to get over that hump. Things are glanced at instead of studied. Look at LIFE in all of its horror and splendor. It can be dealt with, or seen better in order to be dissected into parts because as a whole even a big sandwich will turn people away. If looked at that will spur a person to action, because the scary movie of reality and life has to be dealt with. A old friend stated to me...I utilize the white man to buy my stuff and should be buying Black. First I looked around for Black businesses. There are no Blacks selling at that time what I was buying. So I resorted to my norm...get what I need, and utilize what's it in front of me...until I get what I want. If I do see that I can buy Black as many suggest, I do. There is the BBQ joint, the Barbershop... etc not a large list. This Brother even criticized me on something and end up doing what he criticized me on. Using all of my research and ideas to put the plan together. That is hypocritical. Imagine me bobo the fool...I haven't called him on it. We dont collaborate like we used to either. Like an ostrich burying heads in the sand. We cant be the best at this head burying, while the rest of the world around us move further ahead. In education, skill, and opportunity.
