Musings From A Musical Mind

Tyler Perry in the Star Trek movie

I borrowed the following video found on youtube – from a friend on facebook and shared it on my wall.  But if you are not a friend of mine on there – you would not have seen it.  It is typical Tyler Perry comedy – him playing one of his characters, Madia.  I love this because even though Madia is not ‘religious’ and has no claim to even being ‘moral’ she has many good things to say that are just ‘common sense’  and sound advice to those in bad relationships – and about relationships that all of us have in our lives.  It is done with such openness and authenticity – it made me chuckle – but also made me say to myself, ‘she really gets it’.

I particularly like what she says about the people who come and go in our lives and how she likens them to either, leaves, branches or roots.  I have had people in my life fall in all three categories – and she is very accurate – you will see.  The leaves and branches people can really mess you up – leave you ‘high and dry’ – but they teach us something – usually one thing that we can hang on to.  The root people are the people who are in it for life.  I’m not talking about family – because family has to – it’s their job and no one can help who they are related to.   But other friendships that don’t have to – have no ‘family’ obligation to you.  They are just there because they love you – no matter what.  These are the people you enjoy doing life with – because they ‘get you’ – and you ‘get them’.

Watch for Tyler Perry having a hard time staying in character – pretty funny stuff – and I bet you’ll be agreeing with me that – Madia may be a little eccentric – but she’s RIGHT ON.

Enjoy and God Bless!

  1. I’ll have to watch the whole thing when I have more time. I’m in the middle of the final draft of my latest eBook. Deadline looms. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. ;D

  2. It is true that people seem to forget its the small things that matter.

  4. One of the most difficult things to come to terms with is that most people that come into your life will only be there for a short period.
    Sure there are those people like family members that will be around a long period of time and a few friends. The rest of the folks are just passing through.

  5. Yes, I’ve had “leaves” and “branches” too in my life. They come and go. The lesson is not to mourn them, but love them because they too had a lesson to give. (although most of them did so unintentionally and annoyed me at the time. :)
