This year is going to be MY year. Isn't everybody saying that though? But why can't it be true? I haven't blogged in so long because there is so much to tell, I couldn't even express it. So here goes in order of importance:
It's 2007 and I'm still living with my health and strength. Self-explanatory.
My family is still intact. We even had an additon to our family in December--a beautiful baby girl.
(Singing) I GOT A JOB!!! That's right, I gots me a new gig. THANK YOU JESUS!!
I'll be a facilitator in a money management program for corporate employees. A big stretch from what I'm doing now, but I know God placed me there for a reason. I was nervous, but I'm ready to take it on. And I will an oral communications professor at a nearby community college. I have a lot on my plate, but it's all good. It'll keep my mind off other things.
I have not one, not two, but three articles published at Honey Magazine Online. Yep, you remember Honey and if you were like me you were crushed when they were snatched from the newsstands. I've blogged about them before. My secret ambition is to become a writer at Essence or Honey. Well, I guess it isn't a secret anymore, huh?
Welllll, I sent a couple of stories in to the website expecting to hear nothing. After a week or two, I was feeling froggy and decided to jump. I emailed the editor again and she replied saying she'd posted them already! Special thanks to editor, Suzanne Burge and Sylvia at I Like Her Style (she's linked on the sidebar) for putting me on. My dreams are beginning to come true! Check the stories out at http://www.honeymag.com/> Features>Girl Talk. Look for Having My Way, Who's Looking Out for You? and Is Your Flight for Your Life's Journey Delayed?
I still have the same friends I had in 2006. Drama-free, or maybe 75 percent drama free. (Hey, I guess I can't complain.)
I am at peace with the fact that God's will WILL be done. No matter what I think about it, everything comes in its own time.
That husband of mine is out there somewhere. I am no longer doubting the happiness that God has in store for me.
I have committed myself (atleast the first 7 days) to opening my heart and mind to new things and new people. Hence recreating myself in some way. It's no wonder I deal with the same kinds of people and situations repeatedly. Sheesh! Enough of that sh*t already!
I have to cut down on the profanity. It's just not ladylike. Excuse me while I get it out:
Shit...Damn...Muthafucka (Note: I rarely use the "F" word, but Bernie Mac was right. 'Don't be afraid of the word 'muthafucka') lol
So, that's it for now. I have some other things to discuss, but it took forever to get that out. Have a happy, prosperous 2007!!!!
