Oh, the pressure!

J-Lo you go girl!  She looks absolutely fierce after two kids but as an ordinary mom without an entourage of people taking care of my every need, there is no way I can measure up to these ridiculous beauty standards.  Yet, I still feel the pressure.   Like Jennifer, I’ve had two babies, but that is where the similarity ends because I’ve still got my post baby belly as evidence that I did, in fact, carry my children.  Now, I’m not hating on Jenny from the block or any of these other super looking mamas.  But seriously, cut a sister a brake already!  You know what, spring 2011, I’m just going to do me.  I’m not measuring myself up to these unrealistic expectations of women.  Instead, I’m going to adapt to these new changes in my body the way that I always have, with resilience and aplomb!

Jesus is my Homeboy!

So there I was chillin’, just kicking it with J.  Telling him about how things have been going.  From the mundane to the sublime, I shared all my baggage.  At certain points he was shaking his head at me like, “Girl, you’re so crazy!”  At other points, I had him in stitches laughing his head off.  He cried when I shared some painfully poignant parts of my life.  He looked on patiently as I went over some pertinent information that was just crucial to the overall tale.  Dude, at one point we even had a jam session (me on the vocals while he whistled like the wind).  It wasn’t even uncomfortable when we sat together in silence.  Hanging together felt natural; it felt right.  And that is when it truly hit me.  Jesus is my homeboy!

WWJD Baby

I had a bit of a dilemma today and so I turned to the Word.  Turns out, I need to show more grace.  So I will attempt to ask this question whenever I am faced with a difficult situation…WWJD (what would Jesus do?)  Then I need to take it a step further…and this is the hard part…I need to take Jesus’ promptings.  This will not be easy but it is necessary for growth.  So let’s do this (I say with vast trepidation), o.k let’s try it again…let’s do this!
