Year of Me

I know everyone is doing there "so long" to 2010 blog. Here is mine. What did 2010 bring me? What does reflection reveal? How should I move into 2011 with the knowledge of what I've learned?

I'm actually not really wanting to look back but not because of anything negative. This has been a balanced year, ups and downs, something better known as Life.  I want to do better at looking ahead. I want to embrace possibilities and dreams and visions and be wrapped in the hope that comes.

2011 will bring more living and I want to have a better attitude about how to live better.

I have an interesting task ahead.  For me, its not about how to handle hardships. Its about handling the good times and creating a space for beauty to be birthed and grow around me. I don't need to take on the world and prove I'm strong. I am. Its that simple. I'm assured of the visions for my future PROFESSIONALLY.

What about Rhonda?

2010, I did nothing to create FUN for myself.  Nothing. This is where change will come. I am important, loving, funny, and fun.  Its in me.  The folks around me, still only know Rhonda of CWUW, Rhonda of Damien but not Rhonda with major sarcasm, who loves a good debate, who loves to dance until she's hot and sweaty, who loves music more than air.  2011, I want to feel pretty again.  I want to use my wiles to seduce (giggle). I want to be reminded that I am a sexy, attractive woman without being afraid of saying and showing it.  I can be so caught up in the image of CWUW and Damien that I lose me.  I matter now and in 2011.

My co-worker said 2011 is the Year of Me. How great is that?!  Me.  ME.

I'm going to release the beast in 2011.  As I move into this next year, my goals, my focus are all about ME.  I don't think anyone has seen Rhonda is awhile.  So there's no resolutions about how I will do anything with CWUW to make it greater or better.  I'm not making any promises on how Damien will grow into being this or that.  I'm going to love on ME in 2011.   I'm going to try a little selfishness without harm to others. 

I can say that 2010 was what a year is suppose to be. It was a year of challenges and opportunities, death and birth, surprises and smiles.   I'm sure 2011 will be all of that but with a very vibrate thang once called "Cleva", known as rhonny, and is completely, fully......just Rhonda.

Have a wonderful 2011.

Its Christmas.  I've seen all the usual suspects - The Christmas slogans. "Jesus is the reason for the season", Merry CHRISTmas, blah, blah, blah. 

I understand the celebration of the birth of Christ and why people want to keep that on the forefront of every ones mind but it also seems to go against the purpose and meaning of the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus.  He would have never wanted a day in celebration of Himself but of others and for it to happen daily. Let's every day celebrate each other and the love of this Christian Deity, this great man, this great LOVE.

Our world is becoming more and more evil and yet more and more religious. Its confusing. I pray that on May 5th, we offer love the same way.  On July 23rd, we feed the hungry.  On September, 18th we celebrate the Love of the Christ. 

Celebrate but celebrate tomorrow and next month, and next year. This Spirit should never go away.
