Sorry about my absence this past week and last weekend….it’s been a rough few days but the good news is that I’m back! Going through some life changing decisions on all fronts and trying to figure out what’s my next step.
I have some more Good News!! Last weekend I was able to finally upload some of my videos from my Book Launch onto youtube!!! Woohoo!! I wanted to share them with you right then and there but there are a few bloopers and I wasn’t sure if I wanted to let the world see this
. Still undecided….what do you think? This is the first time you will be meeting me…Hope you won’t judge me too harshly by it!
All things remaining the same…it was a fantastic event and the memories were golden!! Would not change a thing..except maybe if a couple of my other close friends could have been there: Reena, Nadia, Roxanne & Danna!! Luv you all and I hope you enjoy this as much as I do…and can share in the moment. XOXO
One thing I’ve learnt from this past week is that “after one time is two” as we say in trini. I’m learning about people more and more everyday….every year…and every season. When you think you know someone…something can happen to make you realize how genuine your interactions with them were. I’m not saying that I am a perfect person…by no means.
As I said in the closing remarks of my book we are a work in progress and we’re never too big to learn from anyone…even a child. We all have flaws and idiosyncrasies – that’s the whole purpose of life…to learn and grow and help each other along the way but when someone cannot accept that and look beyond their own imperfections and biases then something is terribly, terribly wrong and there’s no point to continue alliances.
Unless one party does something absolutely unforgivable and crossed the line of morals and justice and the situation/damage is deemed beyond repair then by all means…throw in the towel. But if the sole reason is pride and petty differences then perhaps a historical review has to be done of the interaction/friendship/relationship.
What I always do is take a look back and make a judgement as to if this person was really genuine all along based on their reactions and interactions. Most times I have cause to do this, the outcome is sometimes not so surprising…because usually upon true reflection they are not that genuine.
Anyway….enough of my ranting…”like a bridge over troubled water”…once again I had to make a decision about someone I thought was for me. In the end you are better off without people like that who are pretending to be in your favour. I’ve found it best to nip it in the bud, divorce yourself completely and cut your losses when you realize this. Don’t ever make anyone feel that they are more important than you! #lifelessons.
Onto “happier, shinier” thoughts of upliftment and motivation. I’m compiling a list of all the things I want to accomplish this year…tangible and intangible. Can you come up with your own list? Can you give yourself a deadline as to when you want to achieve the tangible things within your control? Let’s go!!
I believe in you…I believe in me…I believe in us!! “We can make it happen if we try.” The sky is the limit to achieve ALL that we want to see happen materialize in our lives this year so give it your best try and Remember to Make it Count!!!
ps…I started my Spanish class this week….¡Me gusto mucho!! ¡No puedo esperar para hablar más español!
Hasta luego amigos~
