Out with the old and in with the new…

Thank God this year is over. I can’t wait for 2009!

Out with the old and in with the new! Gosh I feel like I’ve been through so much this year. I’ve learned so much about myself probably more than I ever have. I finally let go of JD, someone I’ve cared for for almost four years, and let me tell you it is such a relief! If you’ve followed me with my blogs I used to write about him and his drunk dials, his selfishness that brought me down, and me accidentally calling him Jaycee that pissed him off lol. Well, I received an apology email from JD the day after Thanksgiving and didn’t respond. Things are better left unsaid… and after seeing him at the club a few weeks ago and not feeling anything for him I realized that the chapter of him in my life is finally over. I used to think he was the most sexiest man in the world and after seeing him I thought to myself ‘Eww… what the fuck was I thinking?’ He was such a great learning experience I wouldn’t change anything. Well no, I take that back… I wish I could change the way I look at him because I don’t think I could ever respect him again. Its pretty sad to look at someone you used to admire in such a negative way. And don’t get me wrong I’ve made my mistakes too and with him I learned that in life there are no guarantees and shit happens.

When I look back on 2008 I feel like it was definitely my year. I’ve got to travel all over the country and I partied like I’ve never partied before… and me and my partners put on the most successful IMMAE show we’ve ever had. When I think of 2009, I get excited and think about how much I want to make shit happen especially with my career and goals. In the beginning of 2008 Drea and I wrote down everything we wanted to accomplish this year. We posted it up in our bathroom so that every day we would see what we wanted to accomplish… and sure enough we accomplished 90% of what we wrote down. It’s about believing in yourself and visualizing what you want and applying yourself and being productive about it.

Every year I become more grateful for the lessons I’ve learned to make me a better person and to continue to strive to succeed. I have the best parents in the world that have been together for 38 years; high school sweethearts. My brother and sister and cousins will always be the best blessing I’ll ever have… and Drea too. Not only is she my best friend, she is my sister too. My family is my backbone, they are always there to remind me to continue to have my faith in God. No matter how bad things got this year, getting over those obstacles and looking back is always well worth the prayer that was said.

With all that being said, Happy New Year to you and yours and always remember everything happens for a reason and no matter how bad things have gotten in 2008, it could have been worse and things will always get better. Continue to believe in yourself and always have faith in God.

I’m blessed and you are too.

Out with the old and in with the new… Cheers to 2009!
