Hill: ‘create the life you want by how you approach it’


That’s right. Yours truly had a quick Pow Wow with Harvard Brother No. 2 today. (For the clueless, Barack is No. 1). Hill is promoting his new book, “The Conversation.” Make sure you pick it up!

sistah1: What advice would you offer to single, Black women who are discouraged and feel that brothers just don’t want to be married?

Hill: It goes back to a couple essential themes of my book, “The Conversation”. It’s about not allowing yourself to be discouraged. Be encouraged. “Courage” is one of my favorite words. The root of it means heart. Open your heart. Don’t’ fall into the “there’s no good black men” mentality. As soon as you go down that road, that will become your reality. You can create the life you want by how you approach it, build it and talk about it. Go down that different road and you will meet new and different people. Have fun and enjoy. Live, laugh and love. If you do those three things passionately, you will find a partner. There’s no reason to be discouraged.

What do you think of his advice?

    I absolutely agree with Brother Harper. Nothing is more attractive than positive energy. If someone doesn’t have and you do, they’ll wonder, “Hey, where can I get some of that.” Half the battle is always begins with how you feel about yourself and how you respond to your circumstances.

    “Live. Laugh. Love,” is the order of existance. Enjoy life, have great laughs, love will follow.

    I also agree with him. I think there will always be those days when his advice will be harder to maintain, than others but a positive attitude is key. The sentiment can be put to all aspects of life.

    I read the book already and a very positive book that should get people talking about what changes black relationships need to go through.
