Did you enjoy all the B buzz this weekend? I followed your tweets as much as I could between episodes. I didn't tweet because I wanted to pay attention.
I have to be honest, I could tell who was not a Beyonce fan from the tweets and at one point I stopped following someone who was being overly negative. It didn't have anything to do with my devotion to B. It just dawned on me that a person who could be that negative about someone whom they've never met, had no place in my life or on my time line.
After all, we're all doing the best we can. We are taking life as it comes and making the best with the information that we are given at any point in time. How did anyone think Beyonce was any different?
My friends will tell you, I am not a pop culture, celebrity worshiping kind of person. You truly have to be a household name for me not to say, "Who?" again and again. I don't live under a rock, so yes, I know who 2 Chainz is, but I just don't have the time to keep up with a bunch of random people.
What I respond well to is people trying to live their best life. (Sorry had to quote O there.) Time and time again in the both the documentary and the Oprah interview, you got a sense that Beyonce was on a real journey. That she was living by a code that allowed her to become the amazing person she is today. I for one, am glad that she wasn't in the press breaking down every time her life took a bad turn.
As a business woman, I have to say, the line about being polite and business not mixing was right on target for me. I get things wrong, but I get them right way more. What I had to learn is to let go of the mistakes a lot more quickly. Human nature would make you want to stay and babysit the problem, especially if it were a person, but I've learned that it's best if you make the tough calls early before things spiral out of control.
I was inspired by Beyonce's love for Jay-Z. It takes courage to love that deeply and to "absolutely" make your partner a better person. I loved it all and wish them both continued success. What did you think? What were your favorite take aways from the Documentary or the Oprah interview?
