Thank You

Hello guys, it's sunday and a beautiful sunny day here in Texas, yay! If you know me, you will know I hate the cold more than anything. So I am really enjoying this extended summer so to speak. I told my coworker that won't it be awesome if Winter just skipped Texas this time, she told me to snap out of it, it's coming :(.

Anyways, based on my last post I really felt the need to come on here and say Thank You so much to everyone who commented and left encouraging words for me. At first, I was going to apologize for having a "woe is me" moment but I thought about it and I don't think I should have to make apologies for how I feel/felt at the time. Like my blog profile says: I think, I feel, I write :).

I digressed lol

I especially want to thank my friends who constantly checked up on me and laid me some serious advice and perspective. Even though you guys think you were preaching and I wasn't listening, I was. I was also blown away by how people perceive you even when you don't see yourself that way, thank you guys for giving me perspective and having friends like you alone should be enough to brighten my day when I am feeling down. You guys know yourself and if you are not sure you can ask lol.

Here's a takeaway I received today:

The deepest secret is that life is not a process of discovery but a process of creation. You are not discovering yourself but creating yourself anew, daily. Seek, therefore, not to find out who you are, seek to determine who you want to be.

(What you guys think?You agree or not?)

PS - I will be doing this, via work this week for the Special Olympics. I think I have lost my damn mind. Chances are I will probably back out but I hope I go ahead with it because I think it'll be an experience. ( Why am I thinking of Lucid Lillith again?lol)

Have a blessed weekend people.

I am seriously getting the shakes thinking about you going down the side of a building...I don't whether to applaud your or take you by the shoulders and shake you until you come to your senses.

Glad to know you're doing better now. As for the rapelling, you'll be fine. Such things are often safer than we think. And you can close your eyes and think of the good cause. :)

Glad you're doing good Tayne. Nope, you're very right. You should never apologize for how you feel or felt.

I agree with that statement. The trick for me is to always remember that. I sometimes forget.

When i clicked on what you'll be doing, i swear, the words that came out of my mouth was "Haaaa" *said in the stereotypical naija lamentation voice*. Lol.

But that's great. I hope you don't back out. For the past 3 years, I've been thinking about going sky diving, i still haven't garnered the courage to do so. Maybe if you do this, i will go skydiving. Hmmn.
