Good Morning, Love

Image
Good Morning Love. I see you staring at me as I get ready to head to the office. Good Morning. Your taste awakens me like a cup of Folgers Coffee in the Morning Time. It feeds me like a Grand Slam at Denny's. Good Morning Love. I'll Be Home at 5.

Falling in Love Scares Me

Image
So many of you know that I've come back into the dating world.  I had one prospect, but that turned out to be something that is necessary at this time. However, I may have found someone. For the sake of protecting identity we'll call him "Don." Don and I met a couple weeks ago and we hit it off instantly. We've been on a few dates and we text and call each other when we're off from work or doing absolutely nothing at all. Even with my trip to Alabama to see my Mom, Brother, Sister, Nephews, and other relatives, he text and called the whole time I was there and let me know that he was "sad" because I was gone for the 4th of July Holiday.
  After I came back in town, Don and I went out Sunday after I got done with my religious duties and he and I talked and cuddled. I enjoyed it, but for some reason, I am apprehensive.  I can't figure out why for the life of me. I feel like I'm afraid to trust him. I can tell he cares and he's not sho…

Love Won't Leave Me Out

Image
Chrisette Michele, One of my favorite singers, has a hit song on her album "Better" called "Love Won't Leave Me Out." I absolutely love this song. It gives me hope that with patience and diligence, I will find that one and everlasting love.
  I've been in the dating game for about a month now. So far things are good. I have been chilling with a special someone however, I am a bit apprehensive concerning a relationship coupled with this moved to the DMV.  I do know that each connection is a lesson and that I must not fret. The right one will come along.
  I've made the declaration and demand that love won't leave me out.  Even though I'm in the waiting process. That one true love will come along.

Desperate Men, Moscato, and Musique

Image
It's Saturday Night/Early (1am) Sunday Morning and I'm up watching television and relaxing before bed. As I sip on some sweet, ole Moscato, watching "Django," starring Jamie Foxx and Leonardo DiCaprio, I can't help but recap on life and some of the experiences that I've had in life, especially over the last couple days.
  One thing that you will hear me say is "thirsty is not cute."  This means that desperate men are not attractive to me.  If you show that you can't handle "no" for an answer and you keep begging and saying "no one loves or wants me," then you've not only pissed me off, but you've allowed me to see why you are single.
  See I've come to realize that no one wants a desperate, begging man. Why? Most people want someone who is assertive and able to stand their ground...NOT SOMEONE WHO'S BEGGING FOR ATTENTION.
  It's like this in order to be loved by someone else you must first love yourse…

Live, Love, Being Free

Image
Many of you have heard me use the term "live, love and be free" on the Bradley Show. When I say that I mean that from the heart.
  Well many have asked me the meaning of the phrase.  Live means not only to exist, but to take chances and do what makes you happy. Love means to show compassion and love your life, yourself, and give love to others. There is no need to walk around having hate and holding grudges.  When you do these things, you are able to be free. You are liberated because you've chosen to live, love, and in turn, be free.
Live, Love, and Be Free,
Musique aka Bradley

Love From Within

Image
As I sit and write this post.  My mind goes to the struggles that I've had in life and the time in which I lived to please other people.  It was a damaging event that lasted almost 25 years, but as I've grown since my coming out in 2010, I've grown so much.
  As I've grown, I've stopped looking for validation in other people. I've learned to find the love from within. That love that tells me I'm wonderfully and fearfully made. This past weekend as I went to a birthday party and also went out with friends, I saw that I stand out, which is cool, but it didn't bother me as it has in the past. I actually like the fact that I'm not in certain circles.
  I noticed that my train of thought is much different than others in my age group. I have goals that I want to achieve. Granted, we all have room for improvement and that we are daily maturing.
 I encourage you to look in the mirror and tell yourself "I LOVE YOU!!!"  This is one of my many ma…

I Exist Too

Image
Hello. I'm a living being. I exist on this Earth just like you. I've tired of being overlooked. Like I'm just another book on the shelf. I exist too.  Do you see me? Are you to blinded by your religion to see? Yes, I'm different, but I exist. I exist just like you. I exist too.

I'm Perfect... I'm Just Not The One For You

Image
Why is it that whenever I choose to be single, all these busters and scrubs (TLC tea), with all of these hang ups approach me.  Over the weekend, this guy has been trying to get to know me, but the fact that I'm feminine and an entertainer is going to be an issue. I realize some guys can't handle that.
  Well he asked me what I did over the weekend of course I told him what I did.  I worked and I did a show as my alter ego. He quickly says "I don't want to hear anything about that. I'm not being mean, but I don't care for that."

  In the back of my mind I thought "then you really can't handle what comes with getting to know me and being with me."  I quickly scratched and discarded any potential of me even dating him.

  Maybe I go overboard, but I would rather be in a relationship with someone who accepts my total being. Granted we all have things that may drive people crazy or something that may be a character flaw, however me just being …

Loving Hard

Image
Pictured above is Darryl Stephens and Jensen Atwood (l to r). They have portrayed Noah and Wade on the hit series, "Noah's Arc."  To some they represent true love and serve as a model relationship. They managed to come back together in the movie version "Jumping the Broom," in which they finally tied the knot.
  As I think about this fictional power couple, I think of my own love life.  After dealing with an ex, I realize that when I love I love hard. I love with my all and hope to get that in return.  Often times I am let down and I have to go through that process of withdrawing that love interest from that person. Its a tough process, but its true, time heals wounds.
  After a dealing with my ex and being let down, I realized, that I still love my ex.  For the last year I've been trying to break free of the memories, the love, even the passion shared.  I've had lovers since this particular ex. However, my heart is still attached to this particular …

The Love of Pi

Image
The love of Friends and Family is very important to me. Especially at this point and time in my life.  I've ran into a brief health crisis.  Since I've found out that I'm dealing with an illness, which I won't disclose at this moment, I thank God for a special blogger. He is Thaddeus "PiMusique" Works of the PIMUSIQUE EXPERIENCE.
  Mr. PiMusique is a mentor and a great friend to me.  We may not get the opportunity to talk everyday, but his conversations and advice is very beneficial.  Throughout my waiting on results and readings. He was there and is there to encourage, make me think long and hard, and to correct me.  For that I am thankful.  Words really can't explain how I feel right now to have not only PiMusique, but some key people in my life that support me, even when my family decides to act dysfunctional.
  I just want to say thank you to my mentor, Thaddeus aka PiMusique for everything,
Love ya,
Musique

Let Love In

Image
Well, life has away of teaching you things.  This is the first time I'm actually talking about this, but here goes nothing.  Right now I am in the "getting to know you" stage with someone. This comes about 7 months to the day of the break up of my last relationship.  That relationship did not end well at all, but I'm over it.
  Well for the sake of privacy I'll change names. We'll call him John. John and I met last year around this time and we began to talk.  This was when I was #teamBlackBerry and was on BlackBerry Messenger. He and I would text and chat on the phone, but we lost touch. We would contact each other rarely.
  However, in the last couple months he and I have been really talking and I can see that there is an interest and a bond there.  We have some of the same interests in music, life, television, foods.  However John and I still have some differences in things concerning our background, upbringing, and view points on somethings. To me thats…

In A Perfect World

Image
In a perfect world there is me and you. Love divine, happiness,  and joy unspeakable. We are able to profess our love and have that beautiful soiree and gathering  we so desire. Only in a perfect world. Religion tell us we can't. Bigotry condemns us. This world ain't perfect, but we still have that love and we will have that soiree and gathering. We'll make our world perfect. We are perfect.

Love will let a person learn the hard way, then embrace them after the fall.

These Dang Feelings

Image
I hate feeling like this. I hate feeling like a total failure.  For some reason, I just can't seem to come to grips with the fact that I'm yet single again.  Is there something wrong with me? Am I a black widow? Am I some cursee or under a curse that I knew nothing about.
  Today as I ventured out into the mall, I saw other happy couples of various types and I smiled, but it was so hard for me to mask the pain that I feel inside.  See, a few weeks ago me and my boo parted ways and I was devastated.  The reason being was number one the way in which the boo broke up with me, the second part was because of the fact there was limited communication and just really no explanation.  Don't get me wrong, I've had my share of suitors and have my share of callers, but no one really worth my time.  I just don't understand.
  What did I do wrong?  The break up was partly because I didn't meet certain "qualities" such as being overly macho and overdosed on testo…

Starting Over: Musique's Poetry Shall Live

Image
Many of you have noticed that some posts are missing from this blog.  The reason being is that since my 26th birthday was on March 15th, I felt like I needed a fresh start.  I've learned that there is nothing wrong with starting over.
  26 marks a new era for me, as does every birthday. I'm another year wiser, stronger, sexier, and better.  I'm learning the real nature of people and I'm beginning to see who and what I need to separate from.  I've learned that some people are out for all they can get out of you.  In this next season of my life, I'm expecting great things for this blog as well as The Bradley Show.  I'm not anxious, but yet preparing myself for the future.  However, I know that transitions are soon to follow me and I'm about to experience some major changes.  Well I guess that's it for now. Love ya,
