13 things I've learned in 33 years

I celebrate my birthday’s every year, but what have I learned while on this planet? This is a cool way to track the progress of my journey. Maybe I’ll do this every year…but knowing me, who knows. I move like the wind, or as Smokey says, “…like a butterfly caught up in a hurricane.” Thank God for another year, another chance to grow, another opportunity to add to this list next year. Capre Diem!

13 things I've learned in 33 years...

1.) You’re what you know yourself to be. If you don’t know yourself in this exact moment, whether you are what you want to be or not, you not living…you’re simply existing.

2.) Do not accept an invitation to go to breakfast, lunch, or dinner with a kat you’re not remotely interested in. Honor your time and his/hers. (I know, you also want to honor your belly too, right?)

3.) Welcome the unexpected. More often than not, it’s an opportunity to grow.

4.) Music Makes Me High.

5.) Love makes things happen.

6.) Do things for people on a regular basis that they can NEVER pay you back for. (Thanks, Derek!)

7.) Some People live for the moment. I live for the feeling.

8.) Action after your prayers is necessary for manifestation.

9.) I really like and appreciate simplicity.

10.) Read all the signs carefully. Ignore them now, cry later.

11.) I love to travel. More than television, even more than shopping! Traveling is great soul food.

12.) Just because their family doesn’t mean you have to like them, but you should keep on loving them!

13.) And there’s still so many things for me to learn!

Giving God thanks for another year,


Isnt life grand when your layin in the sand!!
