These days I am walking around with a permanent smile on my face. I finally stopped planning every second, minute, and hour of my life. I have chosen to live in the moment. I realized that the intensity of my feelings were contributed to Growing Pains. They are only natural and I have been in a state of transition for a few years now. It is nothing for me to be alarmed about and I should just embrace it.
When it feels like you are personally on the brink of despair, or so wrapped into your own world there is always something that happens that rocks you to the core, and makes you realize that things aren’t as bad as they could be.
Last week while working from home, I stood still as I read the news of the earthquake that struck Haiti at nightfall. It hurt me to my heart, and NO I don’t have family there, but I am human. I can’t help it if I feel as though it happened to me. It is to the point where I try not to watch too much news coverage on it because it gets me very emotional.
I want people to realize that regardless if Haiti is a poverty-stricken country that they are still people. This is a tragedy of epic proportions and imagine how the world felt when 9/11 happened?Somewhere in your hearts you have to feel for the families and friends affected by this unfathomable disaster.
Here’s to a Promising New Year and a Brand New Decade. I can’t believe that it has been almost three weeks since I have posted something. I would like to render my sincerest apologies because trust me I have had a lot to say and not enough time to sit down and write.
I am very excited for this new decade because there are so many possibilities and so many positive things on the horizon. When I look back on the previous years and decade I cannot help but marvel at all of the growth in my life. I can honestly say that I am happy with the woman that I am and I am only getting better.
This decade I really want to master all of my creative contributions. I intend on writing until my hand hurts, singing until my throat hurts, and loving until my heart hurts. I am exaggerating but you get the point. I wish you all a great year and a fabulous new decade. Let’s make HISTORY.
