Mind Your Business

A couple weeks ago someone told me about an article they read about two sisters.  For the sake of this post I am going to rename the sisters, Kate and Julie.  The main focus of the article was that Julie has been married to her husband for twenty-five years and her husband has only worked two years out of the entire marriage.  The other sister, Kate disapproves of the work situation in her sister's marriage and often complains.

Recognizing Growth

When I was in my mid- to-late 20s, I would go to the club and I honestly enjoyed the attention I would receive from men.  I mean, everyone likes to feel wanted, right?  Guys would attempt to flatter me with compliments and the stares I would get as I passed by with the occasional subtle arm grab to signal that they wanted my attention in return. 

Oh! I haven't even gotten to the dancing part.  The way men ogled me as I moved my hips on the dance floor to the latest 'trap' song blaring through the speakers.  Or how I would imagine in my mind that the rapper, Wale was speaking about me in his song Clappers "shawty got a big ol' butt, oh yeah".  It made me feel good knowing that all those men saw me as attractive and desirable.
