I Only Wish

     Let me finish the thought; I only wish I had actually committed all the sins I am seeking atonement and forgiveness for. My good friend Paul (aka Pauly cuff-links) recently said those words to me. After we stopped laughing, the seriousness of the thought struck me.

They caused me to think about the mistakes and errors in judgment we make in our daily travels and transactions. Some of these mistakes are great and some are deminimus, but they all end up in the same place, on the shelf we label Regret.

One of the greatest, most poignant quotes of my time, at least in my opinion, comes from an obscure event in May of 1992 when LA was exploding from riots and Rodney King uttered those famous words; ‘Why can’t we all just get along’. The thought of tolerance, not even acceptance, just tolerance applies equally to how we look at and treat ourselves. We certainly need to give our follow Bobs and Betties some slack but before we can do that, we need to give ourselves some slack. We are not perfect; we are not supposed to be. It is from these mistakes and missteps that we learn how to be better people.

So go easy on yourself. Live life to the fullest, accept your imperfections and learn from
your errors as best as you can. At the end of the proverbial day, forgive yourself, look in the
mirror and smile, after all, you’re only human.

Peace,

Wipeout Wednesday: RHOH

RHOH = Real Husbands of Hollywood. Have you seen it? Well, you should.

If you’re in tune with this decade you know exactly who Kevin Hart is and if not “you gonna learn today.” Essentially it’s a requirement of all Betties and Bob’s, so get on it.

Most of you have either seen or heard of the Real Housewives franchise, if you couldn’t tell by the title, RHOH would be the parody. Where Kevin Hart plays a heightened version of himself and stars alongside other real-life celebrities like Nelly, J.B. Smoove, Duane Martin, Robin Thicke and Nick Cannon.

The show is based on the “successful wives” of the these husbands who in reality, are much more famous than any of their wives. It is filmed with simplicity and an improvised touch, similar to a Curb Your Enthusiasm. There is sure to be enough talent in this show to make even the hardest of critics laugh.

Even if you don’t have an on-demand button on your remote, you won’t get lost if you’re just starting to tune in.

The show airs on Tuesday nights on B.E.T. at 10 p.m. definitely worth a watch. Let us know what you think!

XO,
