I found my smile again...

and guess who made me smile?

Me...well just me understanding me...

I have really had a wonderful beginning of 2009 so i figured that i share the smile
went to so many Black history events and had so many weekends full of activities that i still haven't caught up on any rest but dude i have had the time of my life...

one thing i have really realized is that although i am sensitive i am also driven...so anything that happens will only push me even more right now in my life...
let's see i have heard Michael Eric Dyson speak
the US Surgeon General-here is the thing with that, I actually sat on a panel with HIM...and did a presentation around body image for an obesity round table...i was also able to help about 30 inner city DC youth attend this round table and here is what one of them said:

"I liked TC & VC's presentations. The info has opened up my mind more into what i don't need to stress about and to feel great in my skin. Also, that I should be myself and be happy with how i look in shape, size and image."

now id that doesn't make you smile, then i don't know what will...i of course had to be critiqued about my presentation, but hey criticism helps you grow....and as soon as i came down off that high it was time for me to make my moves to b-more to help facilitate a "voices of the future" summit...I spent a day with some of the GREATEST minds in the DMV area...high school, college, grad school, young professionals...all bright and GREAT and OUR ideas will acutally help to shape the future of an organization and what it will do to recurit young and diverse audiences in their field...

but all of that makes me smile...all of it...working with young people makes me happy beyond belief its the ONE thing i know i do with ease and with all the love i have in my heart...its the ONE thing that will make me keeping pushing even when i feel like stopping...so yea i found my smile again!!!!

no maybe i have been finding it especially since i have been finding my stride lately...life is good and really rocks...its busy i am growing in every way and i am LOVING it...

now that doesn't mean i don't have growing pains, because i think we all do...but when you really sit back and see what it is that you have to offer and what makes you HAPPY and what DRIVES you...man oh man...that's a wonderful feeling...

dude i am just happy....

now to tactal the other objectives for 09...although me and GOD are walking i need to reconnect with the LOVE OF MY LIFE...and with him i'll hit on this weight and all the other things...

MAN i am loving my late 20s...i feel this womanhood thing fo real!

happiness is good, so embrace it. if you're feeling this good about your late 20's, imagine how you'll feel in your 30's...better, stronger, wiser, and more fulfilled. Live it lil sis; live it well. I'm enjoying happiness myself and it feels absolutely friggin wonderful.

love to live; live to love!
