Saw this video on Danielle's Black Snob blog post and not only did her words resonate with me, but this song has been in my head ever since. [And here I was thinking I stumbled across a cool new song and it's been out since 2010. I guess that's what happens when you have a day job...] which I'm working hard at molding into my passion. No more accounting, I am a writer [say out loud and with confidence!]
And I was a bit jealous when Danielle listed all the wonderful directions her career was going: regular columnist with Essence, a book deal, wrote & shot a TV pilot, on CNN and NPR, blah, blah, blah. But then there's this part of her that longs for that special someone to settle down with and raise a family. And with V-day around the corner, I'm once again reminded that I'm single and alone.
I've been searching for that perfect match since the 6th grade. And although I've made some connections over the last, uh, several decades, some destructive, some blissful, I wonder, where the hell is he?!?!
I am, however, comforted that I'm finally in a space where I'm ready to receive my soul-mate, which is why those previous connections were doomed from the beginning, [believe me, I cherish those lessons, every relationship helped shaped me into who I am today.] And so now I know myself intimately - I'm confident, happy, outgoing, creative, spiritual, and so much more. And I now know what I want and need from that special someone, which narrows down the playing field considerably, but also makes it easier to know when we've found one another.
The biggest change and what I'm most grateful for, is that I now have trust and faith...he is out there and we will be together. And while I wait, I'll continue to play, write and create! [and send smoke signals while dancing along with Kimbra's i want to "settle down" anthem.]
with loads of love, hugs and kisses,
