Mgbeke's Creed

1. I believe in faking it if you don’t have it. Be it, wearing foundation to get the coveted flawless skin, wearing spanx to make folk think that your hips aren’t as wide, sucking in your stomach and fooling folk into thinking that you can put abs that can put Christina Milan to shame. Fake it, no one will know better anyway. :-D

2. I believe that every woman needs:-
  • A good friend or 2, 3, 4… (Forget the ‘I don’t do female friends’ thing that women always say)
  • A little black dress
  • Some emergency money stashed away somewhere
  • An ‘it’ pair of shoes, an ‘it’ pair of jeans and an 'it' bag in no particular order.
  • Peace with oneself and others, love and happiness.

3. I believe that if you’re hungry, you should eat!

4. I believe in guilt-free pampering of one’s self at any given opportunity.

5. I believe in letting go, and letting God.

6. I believe that constant laughter is one beauty secret that the magazines don’t tell you about.

7. I believe that it’s ok to be the girl/guy next door. We were not all born to have marvelous talents or to change the world and that is perfectly okay. The world needs balance anyway.

8. I believe that we as women need to quit making excuses for the opposite sex and realize that we deserve nothing less than what we require.

9. I believe in 'just doing it'. Life is short, do it now and odds are you won't regret that you did, as opposed to the 'what-ifs' that might pop up later.

10. I believe that we were not all born on the same day, so what's the use in comparing yourself to other people. Your own time is coming, and its going to be really good when it comes.

Hey bloggers, happy humpday. (PS:- I just found out what humpday meant very recently)...aniwoos it snowed and there was freezing rain so things is ridiculous out there. I currently feel like crap due to being down with the sniffles so any one willing to fedex me some hot and spicy peppersoup will be loved forever and ever. :-D

Ms Sula said...

I believe this post is the shiny ray of sun that my soul needed.

And women who say they can't make other female friends need to check themselves. They're affectionately called EB's (definition taken from this hilarious blog http://www.verysmartbrothas.com/ebs-the-human-body-snatchers/), and they are just a bunch of bitter things.

Meanwhile, I hope you feel better, and I will be fedexing some really hot pepper soup your way (I made some last night ;))

StandTall-The Activist said...

These make a lot of sense. And wish we women will quit making excuses for the opposite sex really. It aint worth it. Pple should be responsible and own up to thier responsibilities and mistake.

Yes to friendship. Let quit "I dont do female" slonga. I have a few awesome female friends that mean the world to me.

Afrobabe said...

Please dont disillusion me by telling me hump day has nothing to do with shagging!!!
