The Last Dragon: Good laughs

31 Dec

I watched the Last Dragon a few days ago, and I couldn’t stop laughing.

This is an old movie, way back and I actually just heard about it when I watched it for the 1st time.

Yes it was corny as hell, but I loved it. It was a feel good, over the top movie. I mean you have stereotypes being twisted around and all types of madness going on in this movie. The story line is cute, and the 80’s fashion, makes you get dizzy and creative at the same time.

If you’re looking for a nice Friday night movie to watch with your friends, get good laughs, eat pop corn and pizza then this a movie  that will make everyone smile.

Here is a clip of my favorite scene in the movie. The Club fight scene.

Have a safe and great Holiday

24 Dec

Christmas is tomorrow, this sounds so surreal when I say it. For some reason, it doesn’t feel like Christmas, maybe it’s the lack of snow, maybe it’s the lack of Christmas decorations I’ve seen, who knows the reason.

If you’re celebrating or just taking this time to relax, or maybe your working, and if your working I’m not mad at you, just make sure you don’t forget to take sometime off to breathe and relax.

Whatever you decide to do, I wish you and your family a great Holiday Season. Enjoy every bit of it.

 

Be safe and be well.

Say something nice, it wont hurt you

18 Dec

One thing that many if not all of us have in common is, we all like to feel good about ourselves. We all like when someone takes the time to do or say something nice. It makes us feel important, it affects our mood and sometimes change the tone of our day.

Someone said something nice to me the other day, and it made me smile from ear to ear. Yes what they said was nice, and they didn’t have to share it with me, but what made this smile so different was the fact that this compliment came from someone who never ever gave me a compliment before. This person just seemed negative and unhappy with the world.

And to see this side of them shine, was a good thing. It made me feel good, and it me realize that they were stepping into the light.

Being nice is not so bad after all, it doesn’t mean your being fake. Be nice and be real. Don’t say something that you dont’ mean.

One word, one complement, one gesture could change and set the tone for the day. Why not make that tone, that gesture be one of positivity and positive influence. I’m just saying.

If you don’t have nothing to say, then don’t say it, but a word of kindness goes a long way. You get more out of life.

Funny quote from Bill Gates, that is so true.

Girl, you gotta learn how to cook up a storm

17 Dec

Ok so I love to eat, and I love to eat really good food. I’ve always wanted to learn how to cook a variety of healthy dishes.

I’ve said this before, and I may have written a blog about it, and I fell off track..whomp whomp

Well I’m more than serious, I’m so serious, like it is a must that I learn how to cook healthier dishes.

So one of my goals for 2012 is to take a nutrition course for two reasons. I want to know what is going in my body and give it what it needs on a daily basis. The other reason is to continue learning about ways to live a healthier lifestyle. I’m not a drastic person, I enjoy fried food and all the guilty pleasures of life, however I know that moderation and discipline is key to reaching our goals when it comes to maintaining a healthy lifestyle balance.

After I take this nutrition course I plan on cooking a variety of dishes at home. And yes I shall share with you, so don’t laugh when I post a meal that looks like it’s been through hell and back. I’m learning. And though there are some dishes I’m good at making..lets say that I need to get better at cooking, it is not my strength.

What about you, are you a chef, are you good at whipping up healthy and delicious meals? Let me know.

Quote on Fear

12 Dec

To overcome fear and break the cycle, you have to be willing to recognize that you will spend much of your life making mistakes.

The bad news is that if you’ve been inactive for a long time, getting started is hard to do. The good news is that as soon as you start moving, it gets easier.

Love this.

What’s your word for 2012?

8 Dec

Last year I asked the question, “What’s the word that describes what your year will be like?”

I got a great response from everyone. Many of you shared your words, and it was pretty nice to know that so much thought went into choosing a word that means so much to you.

Now it’s that time again,we are rolling into 2012, and I would like to know what your word is. That one word that when you hear it, it reminds you to stay on track, it gives you everything you need to keep going.

I don’t know what mine is as yet, I’m thinking about it.

Share your word, put it up on your wall, write it down, and let it mean something real and powerful to you?

Love this picture:) Too cute.
