Foundational Friday: Be Calm and Carry On Applies to Interracial Dating Too

How many times have you seen Be Calm and Carry On or Be Calm and Drink Coffee written on a mug or a shirt.  This idiom works for interracial dating too. Be calm and date on.   Don’t spend even a second worried about what others think. Focus on you and your partner.  What works for you?  Be calm about your union, enjoy your union and love your union. Love your differences and always see the light in your relationship.

Foundational Friday: Speak Up

Do not judge, or you too will be judged -Matthew 7:1

Yesterday on our Facebook page, I posted a video from the show What Would You Do. The clip featured a woman getting her hair done in an Atlanta hair shop.  She spoke about her boyfriend and when the hairstylist found out that the woman’s boyfriend is white she proceeded to judge and spew hateful comments about why this woman should not be dating a white man.  If you haven’t seen the clip check it out here.  In this clip, we discover how people surrounding the conversation respond to what are they were hearing.

When you find yourself in a similar situation, are you bold enough to speak up? Do you have a solid foundation to proudly speak your mind for what you think is right?  You all know where I stand with this issue.  I am pro-interracial dating and I would have to put this hairstylist in her place.  If anyone is judging you for your choices, stand strong and speak up.

Foundational Friday: Know Your Roots

This Friday check in on yourself.  Remember all the great times that you had growing up. If you have no fond memories, then it is probably better not to dig up the past.  I’m thinking about knowing my roots because I don’t want to get lost in completely consuming my husband’s culture and he doesn’t want that either. We always check in with each other to learn more about each other’s roots.  When we have children we will pass on good traditions and memories from our past and also create our own that are unique to our interracial and biracial family.  Honoring our roots helps to build a strong and confident foundation.

Foundational Friday

If you want to build a strong foundation with your mate, spend more time talking to each other.  Technology is robbing the quality time we spend with our loved ones. Let focus on your mate be your words to live by this weekend.

 

Foundational Friday

Use the weekend to be more adventurous. Could this be the time for you to try something new? If you are in a long term relationship, this still applies to you.

Every relationship has a structure, and it starts with the foundation. A strong foundation is built on ideals, principles and values that you both will live by. If you haven’t actually talked this though with each other, it is a must for healthy living. What you come up with will govern your behavior and the way you function as a couple.  So this Friday, do something in honor of that foundation you are building.  You can do something to honor your cultures or celebrate a win in your life.  Constantly feeding your souls will be an expression of you and it will help you both live a more fulfilling life together.
