Doing “Very Special” Things For People You Care For Most

“Got your Henny Chilling On Ice…”
Always liked that line of the song even though I don’t drink, simply because it reinforces the fact that she really cares about her man and decided to supply him with a chilled and refreshing beverage of his choice. There’s something enduring about being surrounded by people who do not mind doing special things for you because of their caring nature. It is an even greater life lesson to learn when you are able to reciprocate that same generosity back to them and then pass it on to another person. Imagine how wonderful the world would be if we all spent just a small fraction of our day helping to do something generous for another person. Think about how you feel when someone goes out of their way to make you smile.
Last night, I was able to support one of my students at his musical show in Charlotte. The show took a while to get started but it was well worth the wait. For one, I was excited and surprised by the amount of talent in the room. They were young and really fervent about their talents. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Furthermore, I was able to go that extra mile to help a student feel supported.
Today, I told my class that I would try to attend different events that they have and their hands went up with in the air to share their activities.
I charge you to step outside of your comfort zone and do something special for someone else you care about. Do not do it for the reaction you expect them to have. But, solely do it because you genuinely want to add a little sunshine to someone else’s day. And when you do so, that same love will be reciprocated back to you in some way and some form.

Throwback Joint of The Day: SWV “I’m So Into You”

This song perfectly describes the music I referred to in a previous post this week. It has a great melody and beat but the lyrics are sketchy. The song refers to a woman being in love with a man who has a girlfriend. But, he’s so irresistible that she just can’t seem to let him go.
SWV has been bringing great hits since ’92. I grew up enjoying their music and often wonder if they would have catapulted to higher success if they had not been so Rhythm and Blues and maybe dabbled with some Pop like other girl group TLC.
Who knows? Tune in to WE TV after Braxton Family Values on Thursday nights to watch their new reality show.

New Music Video:Jennifer Hudson feat. T.I “I Can’t Describe (The Way I Feel)”

Jennifer Hudson is back with a sexy disco number that has been heating up airwaves worldwide. The video showcases a more sensual side to Jennifer, rarely, if ever seen before. Accompanied by scantily clad dancers, Jennifer frolics around in a skintight red swimsuit. She’s obviously embracing herself more and feeling more comfortable showing off her body. I’m interested in seeing if the rest of her new music will have a similar Donna Summer esque feel.
