2010 Year In Review: Let Go & Grow

1 Comment Blog, The Golden Oldies
2010 was a year of firsts for me! I got to interview President Bill Clinton (and stood 1 foot away from Justin Beiber in the process! lmao) . Thanks to my friend Chris, I went to a taping of the Oprah Winfrey show (the post-Oscar show). I went a whole year without wearing a weave (I cant remember the last time that happened!).  My boy Brandon got us some great tickets to the Mary J. Blige, El Debarge and Jazmine Sullivan concert (Wasn’t a first for any of the three but it was a damn good show!) I had the privilege to serve as a juror (for 15 days) on a case that was extremely difficult but yet SO important. I learned that its ok to talk about how I feel…like really feel. Ironic, yes as this blog is made up of my thoughts on things but I blame my very Capricornian nature on my inability and downright fear of really opening up. So, this brings me to my most valuable “first” of 2010, I learned to let go. 

I met someone that has truly changed my life this year. Everyday, this person shows the most patience with me, listens to me and thanks me for being me…flaws and all :-) ya’ll remember that post, right? This person encourages me to speak, which can be very difficult for me at times as I didn’t grow up in a home that was too big on communication. But don’t get me wrong, it was and still is very much filled with love. But since meeting this person, literally from the day we met, communicate is all we do. Like the REAL kind that is filled with conversations that make me uncomfortable to initiate but necessary to have. Ironically, there are no words to express how grateful I am for this person. 

What does this have to do with “letting go”, right? It is all about letting go of the fear of being accepted. I spoke to this psychic lady years ago and she told me that I don’t have a fear of rejection…but that I have a fear of acceptance. Which means I wouldn’t even open mouth to share my ideas or thoughts. And I knew that what I had to say was valid but I just could not open my mouth to say the words!  Can you imagine how crazy that is?? I thank God this is no longer a problem. I especially thank the aforementioned person for that. 

So, folks what does this all mean? It means that as I entering into 2011 and the beyond, I have a new motto…feel free to use it and share it amongst yourselves. Drumroll please…”Name it & Claim it”. Yup, I’m feelin reckless y’all! No matter how crazy it is for you to think it, if you want it, say it aloud and get to work! Maybe I’ll make it a Moxie segment…thoughts? Oh and speaking of Moxie, I have some super cool things up my sleeve and I am amassing a small army that is helping me out! My launch last month was a bit premature but trust me and my squad, Feb. 2011 will be the kick off to something amazing and there some new realms Myss Moxie will be entering in soon, so stay tuned! 

In closing, I want to thank my friends. I have been blessed with amazing friends. Friends who by their loving and forceful (I need that, I can be stubborn) words challenge me to grow, everyday. *standby for a soapbox moment* Let me just say this about the topic of friendship. There are friends…and then there are acquaintances. True friends will do as stated above…they will love you all the way but the greatest blessing of a real friendship is having someone in your life that will occasionally force you out of your comfort zone for your own good. Please don’t ever confuse friendship with an acquaintance. An acquaintance can be pleasant or they can be enablers…beware of the latter. *getting off my soapbox now*
