We R Family

"People so quick to judge you because they can't see themselves in a mirror!"


Hey Butterflies!  It's been too long since I've written a blog but it's time because I have some things to say that I'm sure you can relate to. 


I may have wrote about how hard I'm working but unfortunately there are some people *COUGH* family... who choose to send dumb inbox messages on facebook like they don't have my number to call or text....instead of READING my blogs to find out what I'm up to.  So I'm gonna blog more in hopes they will find time to stalk me here on taneal.com rather than on facebook!  We already know the world is cruel and judgemental but I'm getting tired of blood being the worse of them all!  I can feel the sideways smile when I look at their messages.  I'm sure they could care less about what I'm doing.  They just want to be nosey.  Also, them inboxing me asking for favors I can not commit to.  Since they do not know how busy I am, I guess they assume I play around on the internet all day waiting for them to contact me again...on FACEBOOK asking me to do something for them.  *SIGH*  With that said, I have decided to no longer respond.  It's hard and trust me, I feel bad but even when I try to explain to them that I can not help them, they make me feel guilty.  But hold up...where were they when I was sleeping in my car...?  Hmmm?


Don't get me wrong, I want to have a closer relationship with my extended family but we have taken different paths in life and a lot of things they post on their facebook is too negative for me to get wrapped up in.  So I know talking to them would be a distraction.  I do not feel bad about the decisions I've made to get my business and music career off the ground, and holding down several jobs to make these dreams come true does not give me time to sit and listen to their problems all day.  Although I hope they find a hobby or do something for themselves that they can be proud of.  We all have to do that, it's a way to success and success brings happiness.  I'm grateful I have been blessed to know what this is and how it feels.  So I want others to be just as happy thats why my music is uplifting and motivational.


What I have been writing lately talks about moving on and climbing to reach a higher goal.  I can't wait until it's done.  I'm so excited about opening up more and the producer I'm working with, Big Fuzzz is amazing.  Under his direction, this project is sure to be fire!  We got some new beats Poppin' and we got an A-list of contacts for this project as well, in hopes to get some good song-writing gigs.


Back to family, let me be clear that I'm NOT talking about my parents or siblings.  Since I have been here in Atlanta, my inner circle family have become closer.  My sister and I talk almost everyday and I talk to my parents every week.  Things got so bad down here and hearing their voice healed me.  Especially since I have felt so alone when things got slow and I was struggling big time!  Talking with them is worth more than any "Save Me" money.  But they know that I'm too proud to ask for help.  If things REALLY get bad, I'm grateful to know I can always go home if need be.  Not too many people have that so I wanted to say thank you to my parents and my sister for being such a great support.  They still don't know most of what I'm doing but it's cool.  They damn sure know I'm busy and understand.


You most of all are just as important to me!  You know more about me than anyone I grew up with because you buy the music and read the blogs.  That's why I call you my Frans (Fans who are also friends).  Thank you so much for supporting me in this journey!  And definitely thank you for letting me vent :)


Did you know, you can signup to taneal.com and leave comments?  I'd sure like to hear some of your family drama stories so I don't feel like I'm the only one who think family get on your nerves, lol!


Peace and Blessings
