Sharing Just Because....

Good Afternoon Everyone! How are things in your neck of the woods?

   Here, things have been pretty busy. Trying to organize it all has been a slight challenge, none-the-less a joy to my heart. Maintaining home, molding my business, practicing my craft, blogging, attending events and networking are all pieces of my favorite pie. I guess I can call it Pecan Pie....lol at my own joke. Anyway, each slice is equally important to my life right now. It's just a matter of putting it all together. Creating harmony of all the things I enjoy doing.

   I am sure many of you have noticed that I haven't been blogging as much as I used to. Not because I am slowly abandoning my blog, which will never happen. I am fully committed to my first love. It's just there are so many new/positive things happening around me and I want to share them all with you, however I have to really take my time and write carefully and effectively about everything.Written Communication has always been in my heart since I was a small child. Quality writing is what I am aiming for. I have to take my time to produce quality work. I want you all to really experience each and every post with me. Besides, You are my favorite girlfriends ;-)

   As of lately, I have been watching Oprah's Life Class on the OWN Network. I am not a huge fan of Oprah but I really love the message and the purpose of this particular Television Program. Life Class is about making the best out of life's toughest situations. How to see things from a different perspective and how to grow from lessons learned.

   Recently, after watching Life Class, I created Three list. The first list, I wrote down everything I had been involved in over the past two years, people, places and things. The Second list, I wrote the names all the people who have been apart my life (good or bad) and their contribution to my life as a whole as well as my contribution to theirs. And last, I wrote down a list of people who have proven to have been worthy of my time and friendship. People who have loved me, been true to me, who have received me with open arms and have had my back (sincerely) since the first day I met them. After all was said and done, to my surprise, there were only Six names of people worthy of my time investment.....SIX! This personal exercise had been by far the best thing I have ever done for myself personally. The people pleaser in me don't want to hurt anyone's feelings, but I have to detach myself. It isn't healthy for me to continue down this road of associating myself with people who are not genuine towards me. It is not that those who didn't make it on my list of Six are bad people. It's just that at age 31, mentally, I am at a different place in my life. What I used to do isn't working for me anymore and I am 100% over it.

Girls hanging out! I am Unbeweaveable in this picture haha.
   What was interesting about me creating my personal list was that I had the chance to brainstorm and miss some of my best  friends who had ever come into my life. We've either lost contact after marriage, giving birth to children or moving away to another state. Recently, I thought of my group of friends I had while attending college. Tiffany, Ashea, Shaunice, & Shameka....Those were my girls. We were all so very different but we understood one another as women.

   Just the other day I thought about Tiffany. I wonder how she was doing. I thought about her children and the fun we used to have. Yesterday, while shopping for fruits and veggies with my neighbor, Tiffany called my name across the aisle. When I turned around and saw her face, I almost lost it! I ran to her and gave her the biggest hug of my life. I missed her so much and the fact I was just thinking about her almost brought me to tears. I found out that Tiffany is now married, had another baby, and that she recently found our friend Ashea a few months ago on Facebook. They both had been looking for me & Shaunice. I was able to chat with Tiffany last night on the phone. My God, it was like old times! I am planning to meet up with them soon. It is going to be an awesome reunion of true friends. Lord knows it is nothing like having people in your corner who honestly and truly understand you. I learned recently from one of my dearest sisters who have had my back from the first day I met her and who continues to mentor me as a stylist, she said "it isn't about what you give people. It's about how you make them feel." It wasn't that my college friends were trying to love me, they LOVED ME! I missed the way they made me feel.

    OK, enough with all the mushy, tear-jerking talk, My children just created a blog called Live, Learn, Love Literacy!  It is a Family Blog about Reading and Creative Writing. Go check it out. I am so proud of them for wanting to improve in their own education. I can't wait to travel this journey with them.

Question: Have you ever felt like your personal life needed some organizing? Have you ever lost track of a good friend and the reunion between you was awesome? Has it ever been hard for you to let go of DEAD relationships?
