Little Mix ‘No More Sad Songs’ Ft. Machine Gun Kelly goes country

Little Mix has just recently released a new single called ‘No More Sad Songs’ featuring Machine Gun Kelly. Originally in their Glory Days album, MGK was not featured and so it was a surprise when Mixers (Little Mix fan base name) found out that he would be on the track. Mix reviews were gotten from Mixers but for me, this version is BOMB.

MGK, or his real name Colson Baker, sung (or rap) his way into the song beautifully. For me, it totally fits the song and I favor this version more than the original version (no hate please!).

The video sets in a bar somewhere in the US and all the girls look so beautiful. One thing that we could all agree on is their make up is ON POINT. Here are some excerpts from the music video with the girls looking all so hot!

Tit for tat?

pexels-photo-59197

A few days ago me and my two other friends were discussing about the possibility of World War III happening. My guy friend (let’s call him M) asked this question:

“Why does war have to happen? We are living in the 21st century. We have come a long way from the medieval times. Science and technology has evolved so much and yet our brains and thoughts are still stuck in old times, where war is the only way. There has to be some way to settle the world’s problems without subjecting to war.”

I kind of agreed to that statement. My reply to that was, we live in a world where there are so many people, and every one of those people have their own thoughts, characteristics, and belief. Some may be able to think the way we are but others, we can’t control them or their thoughts.

My other friend (also known as S) decided to answer his question:

“The reason war happens is because some people like to hurt other people. So, the person that is hurt has the right to do some pay back and have revenge. For example, if someone pushed me and I fell, I would push him back. Since we are adults, we can’t go off to our parents and complain to them so that they could fix it. So we have to deal with things on our own.”

I disagreed with this statement. It felt wrong. What a way of thinking, I thought. So I said “But there is another way to respond to that. You have other more diplomatic ways to respond to that.” 

S replied back to me “But if that person hurt me, then he needs to know how that feels.”

After that answer, M and S continued the discussion while my thoughts start to wander. I started to think, is it wrong to not respond back to that kind of situation? Am I oppressed if I was pushed but instead of pushing them back, I walk away? Does that mean that I am weak if I don’t push them back? Is tit for tat the way to go? For a minute, I doubted myself. I have always figured that that’s not the way to respond to things. That’s what my mother has always taught me. Have I been wrong all along?

So I did what every person would do when they had these questions. I googled. I read some posts on other sites and blogs, trying to shed some light. And it made me realize. In that situation, if someone were to push me and I respond by not pushing them back, it is not weakness that I have. Instead, it is strength. It shows massive maturity. It shows massive courage and control. It shows the ability of forgiveness.

Of course, this depends on the situation. There would be times or situations where we have to teach someone and feed them with the taste of their own medicine. But other times, it may not be the right way, especially if it is just a small issue. It may even cause other innocent people to get hurt. Being revengeful all the time is not good for the heart either. When your soul is filled with bad thoughts, negative energy could consume you and it might make you be easily irritated or angry even when you shouldn’t be. This world is already filled with bad people who like to hurt other people, so why not be a change and be the kind hearted ones instead. Be the bigger person. The world would be a better place.

As Gandhi once said:

You must be the change you wish to see in the world

My 2017 resolution: This year will NOT be about boys!

pexels-photo-67475 (1)

In the early months of 2016, I left my toxic-narcissistic ex-boyfriend after almost 1 year of being together. It took me a while to finally see his true colors (this story is for another time!). Anyway, after the break up, I glided through the months feeling so in need of a boyfriend. Every time I watched TV, there would be shows about weddings and love. I would always feel “Ohhhh I want that..” or “When am I gonna get married..“. It also doesn’t help when your friends are starting to get married…one by one. Every time I went out to any event, I would think “Maybe I’ll meet my special someone today“. Even when I got a job in November, I’d think the same thing. I would watch around for guys during lunch time, thinking he might be the one. Maybe him….or him… or him..

Then, I’d also fill my time with romance novels. I read book after book, feeling as if I was the heroin of the book. Until one point, I started to become sad about my own life. I’d go back home from work and just sulk in my room. Why couldn’t I find love? Why am I all alone while other people had their other halves. This went on for a while. I would feel sad (and pathetic) for myself. Some of my friends even had the impression that I was desperate to find love. This statement really hit me. It made me think, am I being desperate? Am I so obsessed about finding love? Am I so obsessed with finding my next love? The answer: Yes, yes and yes.

With that revelation, when 2017 was coming, I decided. I don’t want to feel like this anymore. No more sad songs, no more feeling pity to myself, no more having sexual fantasies about guys (oops, yeah I did a LOT of these). Nope, I didn’t want any of that anymore. So, I made myself a motto for 2017:

“This year will NOT be about boys”

I repeated this to myself many times. I wrote it in my journal. I believed in it. And being in March of 2017 now, I would say, I’m proud of myself. I no longer feel pity for myself. I no longer daydream about my wedding day, or about finding my prince charming. I no longer come back home feeling sad and sulk in my room. I even stopped reading any romance novels. Instead, I focused on myself. I’m focusing on my health (eating healthy..okay well at least I am trying to be healthy). I’m getting my dream wardrobe (shopping!). I’m even redecorating my old bedroom to be like those bedrooms in tumblr or minimalist bedrooms that look so chic. I focused on other things. I even adopted a little kitty recently and focused on getting him all fat and happy (he was skinny when I took him in a few weeks ago, but he’s improving now!). And truthfully, I feel so happy with myself now.

So ladies, if you find yourself being in my shoes, stop feeling sorry for yourself. Stop comparing yourself with your friends who have perfect instagram photos with their boyfriends. Focus on YOU. Do what makes you happy. Be the best version of you. I believe that when you are truly happy and positive, that’s when all the good things (and guy) will come.

 

Women Got The Power

Happy International Women’s Day! If you are a girl or a woman, then this day is for you!

#BeBoldForChange

Beyonce couldn’t have sang it better. Who run the world….GIRLS! 

This day is to celebrate us. We women can do whatever we want to. You want to be a fire fighter? A police? A soldier? Go ahead. You want to be a CEO of your own company? A writer? A pilot? The choice is yours. As long as you work for it, anything is possible. One of my mottos is:

If you want it that bad, you’ll do anything possible to get it…”

Remember those times we got heartbroken. In the end, it only made us stronger. When we get knocked down by someone, don’t fret. Get up and prove them wrong. We know how cruel the world may be, and we still thrive in it. We learn not to make the same mistakes. We follow our dreams.

We are strong. On the inside and on the outside. No matter what has happened, we will get up and triumph. So here is a song to show that we, the woman, have the power! This is one of my favorite songs. It has attitude, it has power, it’s sassy and it’s definitely an anthem. It’s Power by Little Mix!

“You’re the man, but I got the power. You should know, I’m the one who’s in control…”
