#HappyBirthday To Me

I’m 29 years old today. Thank you Lord for bringing me this far.

My birthday motivates me to do better. A person should never stop improving themselves. We should always want more out of life whether it is to be healthier, have a better career, etc. because there is always more to do. At the same time, we must be satisfied with what we have. Now, being satisfied does not mean to become comfortable because then you will stop “moving and shaking” and nothing will come out of that. It is better to be happy with what you have now while working toward something much better.

If we focus on what we have and not what we do not have, we’ll will be much happier.

Inspirational Thought from Secrets of A Super Small Business on Facebook

Realise that not all movement is progress. When stress and tension and chaos surround you, pause for a moment and relax. The best time to take a deep breath is when you don’t have time for it. Select a specific challenge, deal with it, and then move calmly and confidently to the next. When you’re being pulled in multiple directions at once, take time to remember what you value most. Focus on what’s most important to you and you’ll naturally direct your greatest energy to the right source. Life is filled with either problems or possibilities. What you see is what you choose to see. On the surface life can seem tumultuous and perplexing, yet deep inside, where it truly matters, life is what you make of it. Choose to see beyond the problems to the possibilities that await your attention.

50 Shades of Grey

I gave in and read it. All three of them. It’s been a couple of months since I read them, but with all the talk about the movie, I decided to share my thoughts on the matter. 

First of all, to whomever that’s casting the movie, if you don’t choose Ian Somerhalder for the role of Christian Grey, you should probably find another career. Ian just has that look.

He is amazing as Damon Salvatore in Vampire Diaries. sometimes during the show, he doesn’t even have to say anything , but he’ll still have effect on us because we don’t know if he’s about to kiss someone, slap them, bite them or whatever and that’s the type of demeanor Christian Grey has. He’s not a pretty happy go lucky boy, nope, he’s very much fucked up in the head. I’ve seen Ian play other roles, he plays fucked up way better.
 
Matt Bromer, who plays Neal Caffrey in White Collar, is another favorite for some to play Christian Grey. This man is beautiful. Now, the show is really good, but the only reason why I watch it is to see him in a suit.

Hmm, yum. Unfortunately, I don’t believe he’s a good fit for the role. He’s more of a charmer, I can picture him playing a role of a womanizer, not a crazy ass Dominant (oh, and yes, real-life Dominants do get married) with mother issues. 

The other roles should be easy to cast, but it’s the role of Christian Grey that’s more important mainly because there’s so many sides of him (hence 50 shades) and they need to pick the right person to capture each one.
