Spending 2010 in Life's Classroom...now it's time for Finals!

Sunday, December 26, 2010

What a year 2010 has been to date!

I have had some super high big ol' cheesy grin moments (i.e. my trip to New York, Going Natural/My Summer as a Blonde, and my Godson's recent baptism) and I've had some low kick in the teeth times (i.e. weight fluctuations, the Drunk & Parking incident w/ my Un-neighborly Neighbor, as well as 'The Serpent & The Rainbow Experience'). Any-who, I now clearly see that in every situation there was a lesson to be learned that will ultimately make me a better person and be placed in a position to be a blessing to others. So for that... I am soooo grateful!

As the year comes to a close, like most people I cannot help but to outline my New Year's Resolutions which are based on what has been learned this year. But there is one difference about my resolutions, I cannot afford to wait until 1/1/11 to start working on my plans, I MUST START N-O-W! There are some lofty goals that I need/want/must accomplish that extend far beyond mere weight loss. With everything that I am being called to do, it WILL REQUIRE much prayer, fasting, sacrifice, time, stepping out of ALL of my comfort zones and trusting GOD 1,000% with every decision I must make and every step I must take.

If it's one thing that I've learned in Life's Classroom, I've learned that life is far too precious to waste another nanosecond dealing with anyone or anything that is nonsensical and/or counter-productive.

So, I'm calling this last week of 2010 Finals week, because there are some tests that I need to ACE that will set the tone for life's next semester (a/k/a 2011). In exactly five (5) months from today **Lord willing** I will be 40 and by that time I AM DETERMINED to be at the "head of the class!" YA HEARD?!

I'm soooo ON TO THE NEXT ONE! emoticon

    Soror, as mentioned in an earlier email, you have all the tools to make it BIG. You will succeed, or you already know the consequences, so we won't go through that again...LOL!. Anywho, you are not alone on this journey we call life. Our weight or the loss of it, is such a small part of this journey and I have learned through some pretty hard falls of my own this year, that GOD is the ONLY way to SUCCEED! He has lifted me to heights that I NEVER thought I could or would attain in my life, in my walk with Him, in my marriage, in my parenting, you get the picture.

    So, I say all of that to say this, WE are all here for you. We will cheer you on with big smiles, words of encouragement, an occasional kick in the booty, and most of all our prayers. emoticon emoticon
