When You Believe…

sem·i·co·lon

ˈsemēˌkōlən,ˈsemīˌkōlən/

noun

a punctuation mark (;) indicating a pause, typically between two main clauses, that is more pronounced than that indicated by a comma.

Every tattoo on my body has some personal meaning to it. This is a marking that, unless I have it covered, I will bear for the rest of my life as a message to the world as to what I am about or was going through at the time. This is my newest addition.

As an mental health advocate and survivor of suicidal thoughts and depression I chose the word believe with a semicolon replacing the letter ‘i’.

This tattoo encourages me to bel;eve that things will be better and that this is not the end of my journey.

It’s one thing to just say aloud or to myself that even though times are hard that they will be better and things will be okay. It’s a total difference when you actually bel;eve that things will be better or different.

The bel;ef in a better way is what makes it happen. When you truly bel;eve that you will be okay, you will be. You have to bel;eve.

The Perfect Match – Movie Review C+

So I went to see The Perfect Match on Saturday night. This movie stars Terrence J (Former host of BET’s 106 & Park, CO host of E! News, Think Like A Man), Cassie, Paula Patton, Donald Faison, Lauren London and French Montana. Yes, French Montana.

The story is that Charlie (Terrence J) is a life long playboy that doesn’t believe in love only to, yeah you guessed it, fall in love. It’s a typical romantic comedy. It was actually better than I thought it would be according to the cast. One of the issues I have with it was the language. Just cursing or vulgar language for no reason. It didn’t move the story along or have a place. It was also hard for me to picture Terrence J as a playboy type. Overall I think the movie was pretty good. I give it a C+. Not really worth the theatre ticket price but would be a great rental.
