Divorce Your Story & Marry The Truth

Why are you telling that story?  That story makes you look bad! Why don’t you just tell the truth?  The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth! So help you!

Have you ever found yourself repeating a story that victimizes you or makes you look like a loser when the fact is you are far from it?   But just because you had a bump in the road, or someone said something unfavorably about you, you created a horrible story about yourself.  It’s not only important to be careful how you speak about yourself to others; but more importantly how you talk about yourself to yourself.

You have to see yourself as a winner even when circumstances make you feel like a failure. Porque tu no es porqueria ni es basura. Tu es maraivillosa. Translation: you are not junk or anyone’s trash, you are marvelous.

If you have to tell a story, give yourself a new story that makes you a hero and  motivates you every time you hear it to strive for greatness instead of making you the villain.

Your new story should include the following five statements:

One: I am equipped

Two: I can take on any obstacle and beat it

Three: I operate in winning vehicles

Four: Where there’s a will I find a way

Five: I am unstoppable in everything I do

Start writing a new story for yourself that empowers you, lifts you up, and makes you soar.

That is all the common sense I have for you today. Until next time #KeepItCommon!



The big thing right now is online dating. I personally hate it. I like the old school way of meeting people face to face.

Like shopping: I like looking, touching, smelling, hearing and tasting the person first. Get your head out of the gutter – I am not talking sex.

But most people today have a fascination with meeting people online. People go to different sites for different reasons.

People who go to E-HARMONY are looking to get married People who go to Match.com want to have coffee then hookupPeople who go to Craigslist: just want to have sex (or get killed) People who go to Facebook: don’t know that there are real dating sites

Then there is Bootycallforall.com: doesn’t matter who you are, how many limbs you have or don’t, what your sexual preference is or is not.

So I have come up with 13 red flags to help you in your online dating adventure. I have more than that but I don’t want to freak anybody out.

Red flag number one: The person never wants to skype…really.? There is something wrong with that

Red flag number two: The person has no phone number… Are you kidding me..

Red flag number three: The person’s online photos are shot at an angle with filters…That means they are butt ugly.

Red flag number four: Only has 5 facebook friends…Sounds like a creeper to me.

Red flag number five: Is always on the road/busy and can’t be contacted…you know that person is either married or shackled to their cellmate

Red flag number six: they tell you to meet them at a truck stop…Serial killer…run…get the hell out now.

Red flag number seven: they tell you not to tell you any of your friends…Another serial killer…

Red flag number eight: Has no pictures of him or herself…the person is either very ugly, extra extra extra large or in a witness protection program

Red flag number nine: They tell you they are in the entertainment business but aren’t googleable

Red flag number ten: The person asks you for money/ offer you money… are you sure you did not sign up for an escort service?

Red flag number eleven: Asks you for your work address…Don’t you give them that…they will ruin your credit.

Red flag number twelve: They are Sharing the same script with other people…They are loosers with no soul.

And finally, Red flag number thirteen: They Ask you to send a nude picture/ or send one of themselves to you…Careful that is probably one of the weiner boys Anthony or Oscar meyer weiner.

These are some red flags that should send you running quick to delete them from your page social network immediately .

That’s all the advice I have for you today. Until next time, keep it common!
