rAdomneSS...women's history month

ladies and gentleman...

here is the deal...

I GOT MY SWAGGER BACK...

even my interim ed was like, "you are still glowing" i guess when you feel like you are hitting your stride in your life it can really help you to get that swag...CLASSIC..

i just feel like i am FREE, i have freedom, i am doing work that i love and i have the opportunity to be creative...that's what life is really all about...now mind i am tired and i got bags under my eyes but as i walked pass the storefronts as i was coming into the office i just felt cute, i just felt this power from my inner gut...i felt this strength of my intelligence, my heart, most of all my soul

i felt like a WOMAN

that's a power we as women have is something i don't think we fully tap into, and this is the deal every single one of us has our own unique power that is distinctly for US...

i looked a picture of jill scott yesterday and her beauty just JUMPED from the page...that's how i feel like i know i am beautiful inside and out...the look in the eyes of young people when they smile at me because i took time to listen or the look in my nephews eyes last when i told him i loved him and happy birthday means more...or the look in my mother's eyes when i hug her and spend time with her and my father means more...

i am starting to see life in a totally different way...i am starting to see why people say you have NO idea who you are when you are a "youngin" and you don't...but all of those lessons help make you who you are and flaws and all i am starting to really really LIKE me....

its not a cocky thing at all because i still have plenty of growing to do, plenty of things to learn and much more to tap into...but man i am really loving ME...


i am loud
i like nice things
i like the flea market
i like my alone time with having NOTHING to do
i like being in the crowd
i like music live or on a CD
i like hanging with the girls
i like hanging by myself
i love shopping and finding unique pieces...
i like my style even when others don't get it...
i like to eat...
still learning how to cook, even though my momma can BURN
am anal about cluter and where people eat and do stuff in my house
am strong AND sensitve at the same time
i love children
i love the idea of marriage and one day want one, but
i love being single and unattached at the present time
i love working with youth
i enjoy my non-profit work

there are plenty of things i want to do from spening more time with my godchildren to travel...goals i want to reach things i want to do, but small steps and in time i'll get to all of it...

i remember that i was given an opportunity to apply for a position about a year or so ago, maybe even longer, i went through all of the test and background stuff only to hear nothing...and only to be given just in the last 2 months opportunities that people wait lifetimes to get...i say all that to say...we NEVER know where life is going to take us but we have the opportunity and responsiblity to make the best, the very best of our lives...and know that GOD truly does have your best interest...patience is truly a virtue that if you allow to come into your life will open doors for you

we must all respect the bigger goal of life and know that we are all here for a purpse and that purpose includes giving to others...who that "other" is will always be based on your indivudal gifts...tap into them my wonderful people...

so here's to appreciating who you are and where you are in life no matter WHAT...

Talk that real talk sis. I'm so happy and proud for you because this is the kind of thing that should be shouted from the rooftops. You're in a fantastic place in your life and it's good that you're embracing yourself and all the things that matter in your life. You are truly living a purpose driven life and you're blessings will unfold in abundance.

love to live; live to love!
