I love Mabel Simmons otherwise known as Madea. Whenever I need a laugh or a distraction to take my mind off things, I watch Madea. It is no secret that you could catch me watching a youtube clip of Madea anytime of the day, just for a laugh.

Yes Madea is funny, but sometimes she offers up some great advice. I love the way she keeps things real! She speaks the truth hard core. I found this clip from one of Tyler Perry's plays. I think this is advice we could all use, especially going into the new year!

Here are some great words to live by.
