Love and War

People talk so much about the happiness and great things that a relationships bring to this journey of life. What people fail to share are the tumultuous experiences a couple deals with the tenure of the relationship. We try our hardest to prepare ourselves for the worst and if it were that simple, life wouldn’t be as fun during the triumphant moments.

Upon hearing Love and War by Tamar Braxton, I immediately went to iTunes, bought the single and had that fucker on repeat like I had just found out I was going to go deaf the next hour. Why? Obviously I could relate to the lyrics, but the lyrics that stuck a chord with my heart and emotions was “If I gotta cry to get to the other side, let’s go ’cause we’re gon’ survive”. I had been going through an inner tug-o-war with a situation that was and still is driving me bananas, but the woman that I am is persistent and devoted when dealing with matters of the heart. The one person that I entrust with everything about me, the one person I truly love, the one person I look to for comfort and solace… is also the person who irritates and annoys the complete fuck out of me. Yet still, I love him. Ain’t that about a bitch?

Love won’t ever be simple, but the relationships that last the longest are the ones where the couples make it look so easy. Hearing “Love and War” only solidifies that fact. It’s not so much about making it look so easy, but more about communicating with whom you’re in the relationship. I don’t like too many people in and around my life, or at least all up in my business. I especially don’t like letting people know about with whom I’m in a relationship and what’s going on between us. I have learned that people on social networks will speculate the most interesting and entertaining shit as it relates to what they think I’m going through. What I’m most grateful for, is knowing that in love and war, my Love and I find our way back to common ground. Exchanges between us may be “interesting” to say the least, but we never lose sight of what hold near and dear to our hearts; the love. Love has remained constant and consistent despite the battles we endure. Individually we come out stronger, but more importantly, together we come out stronger. I appreciate and am grateful for every experience, as I am appreciative and grateful for his love. It’s a unique love and he’s a unique man. It’s only fitting that I’m just as unique as him and the love we share.

How do you deal with making up after a fight with your significant other? How do you deal with loving someone that you find yourself arguing with a lot? How does a couple get back to normalcy after an argument?

Until next post,


Love And War performed by Tamar Braxton

[Verse 1:]
Somebody said every day, was gon’ be sunny skies,
Only Marvin Gaye and lingerie, I guess somebody lied
We started discussin’ it to fightin’ then “Don’t touch me, please.”
Then it’s “Let’s stop the madness, just come lay with me.”
And truth be told I’m wavin’ my flag before it goes bad yeah yeah
‘Cause we made it this far on for better or worse
I wanna feel it even if it hurts
If I gotta cry to get to the other side, let’s go ’cause we’re gon’ survive oh

We stay on the front lines
Yeah but we’re still here after the bomb drops
We go so hard we lose control
The fire starts then we explode
When the smoke clears we dry our tears
Only in love and war

[Verse 2:]
Sometimes you’re my general, you quarterback all these plays
Sometimes you’re my enemy and I’m throwin’ grenades
We’ll just be chillin’ and laughin’, I’m layin’ on your chest
Don’t know what happened ’cause things just went left
But here we go back down that road
That’s just the way that it goes
‘Cause we made it this far on for better or worse
I wanna feel it even if it hurts
If I gotta cry to get to the other side, as long as you’re there I’ll survive oh

We stay on the front lines
Yeah but we’re still here after the bomb drops
We go so hard we lose control
The fire starts then we explode
When the smoke clears we dry our tears
Only in love and war

As long as we make up after every fight when it’s over
You know I’m comin’ home right there where I belong
I’m takin’ off this armor oh-oh-oh-whoa-ooh-oh-oh

And we stay on the front lines
Yeah but we’re still here after the bomb drops
We go so hard we lose control
The fire starts then we explode baby
When the smoke clears we dry our tears
Only in love and war
Only in love and war
Only in love and war

Several of these young men are now realizing that #trackandfield should’ve been a major part of their lives earlier on in their #athletic careers at HF. Tomorrow they lay it all on the track at the @ihsa_il Boys State Final Meet. Last week, our HF Girls Team were Runners Up. This week I’m praying our boys pull out a #team win. 💪🏾 #GoVikings #hfboystrackandfield #tracknation #fieldnation #tracklife #coach #athlete

In March 2017, @pttheshaq introduced @clark_the_shark10 to #shotput and #discus. Brett Young, father of #KDYoung of @gamecockthrows invited her out to a session we had scheduled May 2017 to prepare her for 2017 @usatf Jr. Nationals out in Sacramento. The rest is history.... Thank you to the Mount Pulaski Board Members 🏛for recognizing Cassidy Clark on her recent athletic achievements 🥇🥈at the 2018 #IESA #TrackAndField #StateChampionship Meet. 🔥💣 I absolutely am blessed and honored to be her #coach.

It’s a tough pill to swallow knowing that our girls were the 3A State Runners Up last year and again this year. Last year we fell short by 4 pts and this year we fell short by 6 pts. Thank you @ihsa_il for running a wonderful meet and thank you @eiu for being a wonderfully organized host! This summer is about getting faster, stronger and better. I’m grateful for this @hfvikinggirlstf staff, these hard working girls and especially our Athletic Director Dan Vosnos.

💿⚫️🚨STATE CHAMPION ALERT🚨⚫️💿 Congratulations to Cassidy Clark @clark_the_shark10 of Mt. Pulaski Middle School on winning 🥇the #ShotPut for IESA 8th Grade Girls with a PR of 33’7.5” and 🥈placing 2nd in #discus with a throw of 100’3”. Everyone knows the throw events are about inches. Going into the finals for shot put she sat in 2nd place. No one in the finals had improved their distance. 😔Her PR coming into the state meet was 32’11” 👍🏾of which she threw the previous weekend at the sectional meet. In order for her to take 1st place, she needed to throw beyond 33’5”... 6” more from her PR. 🤔 Seeing her launch the shot out there was beautiful. The eruption of her entire family and friends speaks for itself. We knew she had punched a powerful one out there, we just didn’t know how far... 🗣Turn the volume up to hear it all play out!🗣 Thank you to the Clark Family and Friends for such an awesome support base for Cassidy. It’s absolutely amazing and humbling to be her coach. Thank you Coach Johnson of @aretethrowsnation and Coach Angel @coachangeldls for your ongoing support and efforts. #ATNMidwest truly appreciates everything you do for the greater good of this sport and the #throw events! #atn #aretethrowsnation #tcr #throwingchainreaction #trackandfield #tracklife #tracknation #fieldnation #thrownation
The Track Season in Review: 2 weeks left with my @hfvikingsthrows boys. This season has been one to remember! Being a part of both the 2018 HF Boys and HF Girls Track & Field programs has been an honor and learning experience. Both Head Coaches have put in a lot of work preparing their teams for a successful season. State is this week for the girls and next week for the boys. I’m excited to get back to the drawing board for the off season once the season has come to an official end. If they thought weights during the season was tough, it’s about to get a WHOLE LOT MORE FUN! 😏 #GoVikings #HFTrackandField #RedSmoke #HFFamily #HFVikingsThrows #HFThrows #TrackAndField #FieldNation #TrackNation #TrackLife #Blessed
To my beloved athletes: The greatest part about being a #coach is getting to know my athletes and their families. I consider each and every athlete I work with my child. My compassion for each athlete working to better themselves comes from a motherly perspective. Thank you to every athlete I’ve worked with over the near decade I’ve been coaching and personal training! I truly appreciate your time, effort, work ethic and especially your love in return. I’m humbled by the trust and confidence each of you give me. Lord knows I’m grateful for the gift with which He’s blessed me and in return I’m able to share with all you talented throwers. Mālo aupito! Ofa lahi atu, Coach #coach #mother #athletes #thankful #happymothersday #icantfiteveryoneinthispost 🤦🏽‍♀️lol
