Relaxation Time

  After a hard days work I find it necessary to come home and relax. I hadn't done much blogging yesterday due to a death in the family.  The last day and a half have been stressful.
   Dealing with crazy people at work and more stress on top of more stress, I think it is time for Musique to relax and to clear his mind for a while.  Trust me it is much needed.
   I'm also trying to figure out what direction to take this blog. I have a lot that I desire to become of this blog. I guess I'll just have to pull some trial and error and see what happens.
Love ya,
Musique

Is the World Ready For An Openly Gay Gospel Artist?

   Is the World ready for an Openly Gay Gospel Artist?  I have been asking this question for quite sometime.  When I ask myself this question I think of one of my favorite singers, B. Slade and his transition from Tonex.  
  His coming out and transition to R&B, really rocked the Christian world and the God heads really threw shade upon him.  However, have you ever noticed a lot of feminine, yet closeted male Gospel singers who are singing the gospel? Not to mention when Famed Pace Sister, Dejuaii Pace admitted to being a lesbian, I felt that a door was open for openly Gay Gospel and Christian artists. However, its not so much as the world, but is the CHURCH, ready for an openly Gay artist? Although we have a lot of Gay friendly and Gay Affirming Ministries, is there room for an openly LGBT artist?
  It's nothing new on Sunday mornings to hear anti-gay rhetoric and the shame is that you have fellow LGBT, open and down low, bashing other gays.  Let's be real, if it wasn't for the Gays, Lesbians, and Trans-people, there would be no choirs, ministers, pastors, ushers, or anyone else in the church. For years, we've had a presence in God's house, but because of man's stupidity, they made it seem so wrong.
  Even as a child, I knew that there had to be gay people in the Gospel industry.  I'm sure you've heard the horror stories of the late Rev. James Cleveland and many other Gospel singers being gay and turning the kids out allegedly and even dying of AIDS related complications, but I never felt as if one's sexuality was a big deal.  I always felt that if you carried yourself in a Godly way then you were qualified to do the job. Why does who someone chooses to sleep with behind closed doors matter? So much of the world especially in the Gospel industry say "its okay to be Gay, but stay in the closet. You may corrupt our kids and family." Some may even say "oh he's just feminine." We all know that Brother Tay and Pastor Gray are getting it on behind closed doors.  NO SHADE INTENDED.
  Not only is the world and Church ready for an openly Gay Gospel Artist, is The Openly Gay Gospel Artist, ready for the world?

I Have No Life

   Today, I took a moment to examine my life. I've come to the realization that I have no life.  All I do is work, church, and come home.  Yes, I've entered into a new relationship and I'm working on my first album and relocation to NorthWest DC, however it seems that there is just not enough time.
  I try to make sure that I enjoy life, however, it seems to piss people off whenever I take time for myself. Granted I spend time working on this blog and trying to make it work for me so I won't have to punch a steady 9-5 and I also try to spend time clearing my mind however sometimes I just feel like I get burned out!!!
  Sometimes I just want to scream!!!
  I'm almost 30 years old (2016) and I feel like I'm behind.  While everyone is buying their dream homes and married, I'm still dating and still trying to get half of what they have.  I feel that I have no life. I feel that I'm in danger of being unaccomplished.  I see that people that are younger than me are further ahead of me.
  It often makes me wonder "where did I go wrong." I guess it's just one of those crisis that we all face in times of great stress and pressure. I just pray that something major happens before I turn 30.
  Grrrr.

July 1st: 2 Months and Counting


  Well, It's the beginning of July and hopefully the start of my last 2 months. I've had some minor setbacks. For starters due to my roommate moving in with his boyfriend, I had to move back in with Uncle Dearest. Lord, Be a Xanax and a Fence. I know this move will help me save more and help me better prepare for the Move to DC, but I just can't deal with the craziness and stupidity that Uncle Dearest brings. 
  However, the count down as began. I'm asking that if you stop by and read this post click the widget above or go to http://www.gofundme.com/destinationdmv to help Destination DMV become a reality. I'm ready to go, but I realize that business here must be handled first.
Love ya,

Change is Necessary

      One thing that I've learned in life that is constant is change.  Change means that everything shifts, becomes new, or holds a new position.  Change may not always be how we want it, but it is necessary.
  Change may not feel comfortable, but it is necessary. Change may mean we loose some friends and loose some possessions, but it is necessary.
Change is necessary.

It's So Close


   WOW 3 months and I will be moving. I want to thank those who have contributed so far to Destination DMV (Click the Widget Above and Highlighted Title). I'm kind of antsy because in the preparation process, everything that wants to happen is happening, however, I do believe that all things will work out for me at the appointed time. 
  I'm anxious about leaving my family but also starting a new chapter in my life and more.  I have big hopes and dreams and I am to reach them. I plan on furthering my music career and I also plan on achieving some goals in the entertainment industry. Its so close I can taste it,

Life Gets Hectic

  I know many of you have been feeling like I've been neglecting this blog and you, my faithful readers, but life has been hectic for me. With work and recent church events. Then also I've had a lot going on with family. I'm glad to say it's finally toned down for me and I'm glad about it.
  Life gets hectic sometimes, but you must always remember to take time for yourself. That's why tonight I'm spending some me time cleaning and going to the gym. God knows I haven't been in a forever. Then after the festivities, I'm going to get a good nights sleep. I love being me. Don't you love it too?

What's Your Perception?

What's Your Perception of yourself? Are you enough? Are you inefficient? Are you real? Are you fake? Who are you? Are you yours or theirs? What's your perception?

It's Friday!!!!


  Well It's Finally Friday and I'm very excited, even though I do have to work this weekend. I'm happy to say that I survived another week and that I'm surviving my God's Grace.
  Let's just say this week has been kind of stressful and I've found my self in state of irritability. I've been preparing for my future and although it isn't happening the way that I want it, I know that things will work out. I just have to keep pushing and patiently waiting.  I do know that things will work out soon as far as job placement and residential situations.
  It is Friday and I'm going to rejoice. Time to relax with some good food and some good music.
Love ya,
Musique

I'm going to also look in Virginia as well. Many of you all have seen me sharing the links of a crowd funding venture entitled Destination DMV (pictured above).  I'm trying to see what area I really want to move into.  If you are in the DMV area reach out to me on this blog.

#TBT Memories of Musique

Biltmore Estates Asheville, NC circa 1998

 
   The above picture is from when I was in middle school.  I think I may have been in 7th or 8th Grade.  It was spring time and the flowers were blooming at the Biltmore Estates in Asheville, North Carolina.  Look at that handsome boy in the picture above LOL
     This memory is one of my favorite memories because I really found out how handsome I really am.  This picture catches me in a happy moment.  I recall that moment vividly. I was happy.  Although, I've struggled with self esteem, This picture captures me in a new essence throughout my teens.
 This is my "Throwback Thursday."

Monday Thoughts: GO FOR YOUR DREAMS!!!!

  It's another Monday. Another day going into the "dungeon" aka the workplace. As I write this piece, I am preparing myself for the work week. I am also preparing myself for my dreams that lie ahead.  Being in the work force for the last ten years and working for other people has come with great benefits, but one must go for their dreams and do something that they love.
  Going for your dreams may cause you to sacrifice. It may also cause you to cut some ties, but never the less, going for your dreams have been God ordained for you life. Your dream is what God has been giving to you accomplish. It is not just a dream, but it is your mission. It is your call.
  Go get your dreams and do the thing now!!!! Don't waste another minute.
  Just a quick Monday Thought,
