Happy New Year!

January 2, 2008

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?" - Marianne Williamson

Thanks Sylvia for having this on your facebook quotes. I needed this more than ever. Slowly I let thoughts that I may be too big of a dreamer creep in somehow, so this popular quote helped me get my mind right once again.
In 2007, who was I not to debate with a Great Debater?
After interviewing Denzel Whitaker (yes, the kid has a great name) we got to talking about Transformers, one of his fav movies and to me some of its hype is undeserved.
In 2008, who am I not to achieve my want to see much more of the world? 
Today me and my roomie hosted New Years Dinner with a few friends. I invited a Howard guy I met at the NYC HU alum Kwanzaa event Saturday. It was at Monique Greenwood's Akwabaa mansion in Brooklyn and a great time. He was really funny today and we all had a great time.
Last night me and Charanna and some other folks went out to dinner than afterward I hit a brownstone party in Harlem. Good times. At the party I must have been looking a little cute because the girls with their man were clinging to them extra tight, making me want to laugh. Im not that girl. trust.
And on top of that, the ex-husband from someone at work tried to holler at me. sigh. 08 has already begun to be interesting indeed!
In keeping with the Great Debaters moment, here are my 08 accomplishments. Resolved:
To become a healthier and happier me
To step up my travel and style
To not sleep in my contacts
To always wash the makeup off my face ( i know, i know)
To be more mellow
To forgive those who trespass against me as God forgives me  for my own shortcomings
To live my dreams while fulfilling my purpose

    It's funny that I'm reading this now after coming in the house from seeing this fabulous film. It was a wonderful, intelligent and heartfelt...and oh my, do I have a crush on Nate Parker!
    Anyway, Happy New Year! (and Happy Resolving.hehe) See you soon-- Hopefully I'll make it to Teacakes next week, since the boss put me on weekends for the next few weeks.

    I absolutely love that quote.. it is one of my favs and certainly one that gets you motivated, esp in the new year. Good luck with all your resolutions, although I'm sure you dont need the luck! I plan on seeing them come into fruition.
