A letter of apology to my brothas Written by Tanisha Bridges

I write to you as a representative for every black woman in the world right now.
I want you to know that "I'm sorry"
I'm sorry for talking down about you & to you.
I'm sorry that we as your sistas didnt defend you when others said that you weren't nothing but pimps, hustlers & drug dealers
I'm sorry for not checking you when you got outta line
I'm gonna say sorry for some of the mothers that brought any type of male in your life that gave you a negative example of what a man should be
I'm sorry for picking the wrong man to lay down with, thats why it felt like you never had a daddy
See I realize that we take a part in the medias view of you
Going on talk shows, having discussions talking about, "all black men are dogs"
And if I'm your sista, what does that make me?
I had to check myself for a moment
We as sistas most instill greatness in you from birth on into your manhood
I promise to let the world know there are & have always been some good, strong, intelligent Black Men still on this earth
In closing I want you to know that I apologize from the bottom of my heart
Love your sista, Tanisha

The legend of the LOVE LETTER

Living in this day and age of technology and everyone going GREEN [some people just use this term to seem 'cool'], has the LOVE LETTER suffered a severe or even DEADLY blow?

Have the emails, text messages, and networking sites caused putting your heart on paper to be a thing of the past?

Who, reading this blog post right now, has thought about going to the store, getting pretty paper, colored pens and actually sit down to write something thoughtful? Find your favorite fragrance/cologne and spray the pages when your done? Or folding rose petals with the letter before placing it inside the matching envelope and seal everything up?

Or did anthrax ruin that? lol!

Have you tried it?

Have you even tried putting the envelope on their car windshield or on their pillow? Or in a shoe that they'll find as they get ready for work?

And PLEASE don't say stamps are too high incase you're not able to do the things mentioned above! We buy everything else we want to buy, and do everything else we want to do!!! Why not take out a little bit of time to do something a little extra special?! We all know gas is high as well. But so is the cost of love! I mean, you don't have to do this everyday or even every week, especially if this person lives across town or across the states for my long-distance lovers out there. Think about how this will make the other person feel.

And don't worry about your handwriting! ;) Don't let that be an excuse to keep you from doing it.

NOTE: You do not have to be in a coupled relationship to do this...think about someone that means alot to you: a relative, your best friend, maybe someone you haven't spoken to in a while like your favorite teacher or someone that helped you get out of a jam. It could be a 'Thinking about you', 'Missing you', or 'Thank you' letter. Trust me, it would do them a world of good to know that you were thinking about them enough to sit down and write. Especially the way times are these days with the stresses of life, even people leaving this place unexpectedly.

In return, they could call you or even send YOU a letter. Then you'll know how it feels to have someone think enough about you to actually take out the time to write YOU.


I've been thinking about this for a while now and even talked to my friend about this a few months back. Our original thoughts, being the romantics that we are, were to write scented love letters to a significant other. I'm now logging this into my memory bank for future use.

I will also would like to thank the LOVELY AALIYAH for putting this blog post into motion as I've been taking a trip down memory lane lately listening to alot of 'old skool' music. [Kinda feels strange calling it OLD SKOOL! It wasn't THAT long ago! Was it?!]

for the FIRST TIME in a LONG TIME..

i've actually looked in the mirror:

to build myself up, not tear myself down

to say i'm beautiful, fearfully and wonderfully made. not think God made a mistake or think there's something WRONG with me

to piece myself back together and make PEACE with me. not to figure out ways to please others...


Quick Tip. Left over makeup in Compact

a quick video showing what i've done with left over pressed powder in my makeup compact. hope it helps.

you know WHO has a BIRTHDAY coming up

Ok so NEXT MONTH is my B-DAY [OCT 12TH]! i have NO IDEA what i'm going to do! i don't even have anything planned! i wish i could've had the big ball or a throwback party like i wanted to one year, but i will another year i guess!
