Now Usually I Don't Do This But Um...

I'ma go head n break yall off a lil preview to the remix. This is an excerpt from my book, still a work in progress. Just a lil Get Ya Mind Right 101 (no, that's not the name of the book lol). Class is now in session...

"Some females let their emotions get the best of them by either keeping them locked up, or not knowing when to chill. There needs to be a healthy balance of emotions to keep you (and those around you) sane. When something is upsetting you, you need to always stop and ask yourself these three questions:

Is it that serious?Like is it something that will have a great impact on your life? Sometimes bitches would realize they are trippin for no reason if they just stop and think about it. So please stop and think damn it. If your answer to this question is no, then shut up and get yourself together. If your answer is yes, then move onto the next question.

Could it be worse?Did you wake up to see a new day? Are you breathing? Are you healthy? If so, then guess what? Your ass is alive and you need to smile about that shit if you can’t smile about anything else. I know in some situations this thought escapes you, but try not to lose sight of that. I don’t know about you but I feel like as long as I’m living, I’m gonna fight. So what’s next?

Is there anything I can do about it?If your answer is no, then relax. Take a deep breath. Turn your brain off for a minute and clear your thoughts. Hit the reset button. Now, if there is truly nothing you can do, then you just have to let it go, hope for the best and prepare for the worst. But, if your answer is yes then get your ass up and get on it.

This is how you check yourself. And it applies to anything. Having an argument, losing your purse, getting into a car accident, catching your man cheating, being evicted or having your lights disconnected… whatever. A lady is always cool, calm, and collected. Well not always, we can have our moments… I’m just saying. Keep a level head and don’t let your problems consume you. It’s not worth the energy."

So what kinda book is this suppose to be? motivational? I guess after reading it I'm still a tad confused

anonymous: no it's not a motivational book. it's a book about being a woman and all things that come along with that. from being responsible for our actions (and priorities) all the way to advice on sex and relationships. this excerpt is just for people who tend to let little things stress them and get the best of them, when there's more important things worth the energy. still confused?
