2010- Another Year in the books

Well this year is almost about to end and somehow I dont feel like I have accomplished all that I really wanted to do. I know you probably feel the same way too thinking that next year you will get everything that you wanted to do and those things that your heart desired to see come too pass will manifest.

I know one of the main reasons why I didnt see as much as I wanted is beause I didnt write down my goals. I know a shame!!. If you see it you can acheive it. Even the Word of God says to write the vision and make it plain upon tablets, that he may run that read it. (Habakkuk 2:2)

So I just want to encourage you to take the time and write down those goals and visions that you want to see happen in 2011. I promise my self that I plan on meeting every goal possible that i put on my list. What about you?

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that we are too legit to quit. We are too dope to be roped. Too fly to get by. We are more than able, we are damn near capable of swinging up and grasping the stars. We are here and we aim to do more than survive, we aim to thrive.

I saw this quote on another blog called Black Thoughts..... Wow!!! it just made me proud to read it. It encouraged me because I know that this statement is so true. Regardless of what society and the media says about us as a people WE DO aim to Thrive and not just Survive.

The young intelligent black man from Atlanta, Deonte Bridges; has really been on my mind. The Valedictorian speech that he gave at Booker T Washington High School in Atlanta will forever be etched in my mind. Here is a young man who defies all odds and is not a Statistic a young man with a successful future ahead of him. He won over 1 million in scholarship monies. When I viewed his speech on you tube it brought tears to my eyes. I can just imagine how proud his mother must be.

Its Spring already!!!!

Well I haven't been on my blog in such a long time. I actually kinda miss it. I can't believe it's spring already where is the time going. I am really determined to make sure I reach my goals this year.

I have really been in a mode of renewal lately. I have been cleaning and throwing out and giving away all sorts of things. It feels refreshing really. It's amazing how you can collect so many things and hold on to them and then ask yourself why in the world do I have all this stuff. so out it goes. Yes I am Spring Cleaning!!!

Its a New Year....2010

Well I haven't been on my blog in a minute. I have been in a very creative and crafty mood lately. I found these two ladies called the Double Stitch twins: Erika and Monika. Their work is really awesome and it has gotten my creative juices stirred up again. I have always crocheted( since 7th grade) but not like this. Soooooo when I get a few of the projects done I will let you see what I have been creating. Until the next time .....
