Fact vs. Fantasy In Love….Which is the Reality?

Love-your-choice2-1024x556We all want to experience real love, but how would you define it? How do you know when what you are experiencing is real love?

Defining love is like defining a particular color to a person who has never been able to see color – you have to feel it to know what it is. The reason it is so hard to define real love is because you cannot experience it with your mind, and definitions are of the mind. Real love is of the heart, and is the result of your intention to be genuine, because love is NOT A FEELING; it’s a decision. And you make that decision based upon experience. 

But what about true/real love in relationships? Love is an action that if you don’t use it you lose it. Love is like any communication, if you never send it out, you won’t get a return. Love is something you give to others not something you feel because something happens to you. Love is something that grows from your actions and decisions and if you don’t have it, or is not experiencing it; then there is something you don’t know about love!!

In fantasy verses the facts about love, we may paint a pretty picture in our minds about this fantasy, which  isn’t necessarily built on the admirable qualities we desire in a partner. Instead, it may be based on gaps we hope to one day fill, mistakes we aim to correct, and familiarities we’ve grown accustomed to. However, one’s traits, faults and weaknesses should become a reality in growing our relationships. 

Love is probably the single most universally desired human quality that exist on this planet. Love is not something you can buy or barter, it is not taught in school, it doesn’t matter how rich you are, your IQ, race, creed, religion, social economic status or who you know. Love IS exactly as it does…So as some of you approach this Valentine’s Day, practice making a decision to love and then follow that decision up with actions that communicate love.

But remember…. love is not a feeling; love is a decision!

What will you decide?

Patti LaBelle, 71, Dating Her Drummer, 41

couple-550x360R&B legend Patti LaBelle is living a life straight out of American Gigolo, the 1980 film about an emotionally unavailable high priced male escort.

The 71-year-young songstress, who revived her career selling sweet potato pies for Wal-Mart, is dating her drummer, 41-year-old Eric Seats.

The couple met after he was hired to be her drummer last year.

“She tried to keep it quiet, but everyone around her has figured it out by now. She’s completely smitten with him,” a source told London’s Daily Mail tabloid.

LaBelle’s 42-year-old son, Zuri Edwards, is reportedly unhappy that his mother is dating a man younger than he is.

Seats is known around the music industry for targeting rich older women. He reportedly loves them then leaves them. But Patti’s friends aren’t concerned that Seats might be an American gigolo.

“She hasn’t been this happy in years,” a source confided to the Daily Mail. “Patti was so happy he moved to Philly with her. She loves having him with her all the time. She even has a big portrait of the two of them up on her wall in her bedroom,” said the source.

Seats has toured with Stevie Wonder, Mary J Blige and Missy Elliott, in addition to producing songs for Destiny’s Child, Aaliyah, 702 and Tank.

Single this Valentine’s Day? Don’t Buy into the hype!!!


Happy Valentine’s day “CEO readers” and “Conversations Of A Sistah” listeners,

Today is Valentines Day and I’ve been flooded with the “I’m single this Valentine’s Day” email messages all day long.

People please Stop the madness!!!!

If you’re single this Valentine’s day celebrate you, ladies get a pedi or a manicure and have dinner with your girlfriends. Love yourself, focus on self and concentrate on self. Fellas you do the same, while loving your mothers and honoring your sisters, even if it means giving out single roses or a kind smile. Ladies and Gentlemen, prepare yourselves for when that “special someone” does come along.

Remember: happiness is not based on being with someone else, nor does having someone define who you are.


LeBron James Proposed To The Mother Of His Sons

Happy New Year Ceo Family!!!!

After eight years and 2 boys, LeBron James rang in the New Year with a marriage proposal to longtime girlfriend Savannah Brinson. I’m a little disappionted because they were already engaged, this special occasion should have been a wedding instead. They’ve lived as husband and wife, so why not skip the engagement antics and make it legally official?

Brinson and James are high-school sweethearts since St. Vincent-St. Mary’s High School in Akron, Ohio.

LeBron turned 27 on Friday, and in addition to the engagement, Saturday night’s bash also featured the kind of extravagant birthday cake that you’d expect at a party thrown by King James, a towering rum cake adorned with edible 18-carat lions and Swarovski crystals.

Congratulations to the happy couple!


“Will And Jada Smith Did Not Seperate”

Nor is the famous couple seeking divorce.

In a joint statement from Will and Jada, they tell Entertainment Tonight, “Although we are reluctant to respond to these types of press reports, the rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false. We are still together, and our marriage is intact.” Source

Even before his famous parents spoke up, their son Trey Smith deaded the rumors on his Twitter page this morning. In two successive tweets, an irked Trey addressed the rumors:

People please stop believing everything you read!
