Searching Meet-Up

I was on the phone with my friend and we decided to search Meet-up for local events. I found a Bid Whist meet-up but the age requirement was 50+ :-(

What a shame. I would love to crush some 50-Year-Olds in Bid Whist (and learn some new tricks and tips in the process).

Maybe I could crash…nah, I’ll ask first.

At the Studio…Almost

I rehearsed with the new musician today to prepare for rehearsal later this week. He invited me to sit in on the rehearsals and his church with his siblings and other members to help me break out of my shyness. According to him, I have no reason to be shy. And I agree.

I slipped up and told him I write music and he’s definitely trying to get me in the studio when I’m not shy anymore. So later this week, I’m bringing a friend to the rehearsal and it’s going to be awesome.

Although it’s just Monday, this has already been an amazing week for me. I still have my bouts of sadness, but the truth is everything is wonderful. My cousin called to encourage me today. I spent half of the day in the city with my mom. And I came home to another request for an interview in my inbox. I really feel like I can do everything I’ve wanted to do now. I really believe that where I am weak, God will make me strong. And I’m learning how to accept a compliment without giving my internal critic the opportunity to interject.

Phone Conversation with Mom

Mom:I just wanted to tell you that you really sang that song yesterday. You sang both of them well, but you really sang the first one.
Me:(in shock and partial doubt) Thanks, but I know you have a comment.
Mom:No I don't. Why would you think that?
Me:Because you always have a comment or critique.
Mom:No I don't. It was a nice program.

Progress: The Real Kind

I’m up at 5 and my meeting isn’t until 9. So I’m pondering life. I’ve concluded I need to know some more early risers. Until then, I’m satisfied I found one person that emails back in an appropriate amount of time. Communication is vital is a team and I’m glad she understands that. #NewBusinessBestie

Attempt to steal my choreography: Thwarted
Not like I would mind, really. I would actually be honored. It may sound hard to believe but its easy to borrow dance moves and impossible to embody the spirit and grace of the choreographer.

I love the relationship I’m developing with my dad right now. Caregiving is not easy, but he’s a cool person so that helps. We’ve been having real talk conversations that are really helping me plan my next steps. So I’m learning how to be necessarily mean. Now I just need to practice…any volunteers? lol

To Karyn Washington. →

alexandraelle:

As my 6 y/o daughter sleeps peacefully next me, I’m laying here restless and sad. I just got wind that the founder of For Brown Girls, 22 y/o Karyn Washington, has passed away from suicide. I didn’t know this young woman personally but her movement and mission was vibrant. I pray it continues on;…

Defrauded

I’m hurt and it’s going to take time to heal.

The more I try to move forward and forget what I’ve forgiven, the more pain I feel from the past.

Today my life is much better than what it was then. I don’t feel limited and I’m growing. And I refuse to repeat the same mistakes again.

At the core of every relationship is forgiveness. How can we hope to forge relationships with others if we can’t forgive?

God is So Wonderful

I received a pre-employment notification today. 🙌 If all goes well, I’ll be in a 3 year career program with benefits.

Until I’m confirmed, I have an immediate opportunity through the staffing company that’s 20 minutes from my house.

But it gets better. I also passed my clerical test so I’m in the running for another opportunity with benefits in another great location.

I’m so excited.

This is beautiful and it’s amazing to me that it had such a positive outcome and not lifelong hateful grudges, which is probably what these attackers deserved.

Ahhhhh, I’m a Micromanager :-(

I always worked for these people but I never thought I would become one. I hate being like this. I’m going to change. I’m changing now. The flyer is not how I would like it but that’s fine. I won’t redo it. I won’t redo it. I won’t redo it.
