walking forward.













As mentioned in my previous post [see random thoughts], I'd be clarifying on what I meant when I said my train ride bought about thoughts of walking forward. I'm not one to make New Year's resolutions [they set you up for failure in my opinion], however, the new year is steadily approaching and some Changes [yes this word now deserves capitalization and emphasis - hence the italics] are gonna be made. Shoot, if Barack did it, I could too, right ?


Anyway, I don't know how many of you have been keeping up with the CNN specials, 'Transition to Power' but I have and I keep getting these little subliminal messages. Weird? Just a bit. I mean it's not like he's sitting there [looking so damn handsome] talking about becoming a better person, cutting out all the bad in his life, etc ... but damnit, I hear the message... yeah I really do. I've always been a motivated individual but like a lot of other people, I'm even more motivated now. I figured, why should I sit back and witness Barack make a transition into power and leave myself out?? So not only is he making a transition I'm doing the same thing ... just on different levels [clearly, lol]. One adage that's always meant something to me was: "You can often tell how far your life and career will go based on the people you spend the most time with". I agree. The people you spend most of your time with definitely influences who you are, in my opinion. I've been slowly and discreetly cutting off anything or anyone in my life that isn't walking forward ... and enjoying every bit of it [damn, I wish Blogger had actual smiley faces]. I recently had to ask myself : "How much do you love yourself?" Is it arrogant of me to say I want better for myself? Nope ... Change is very uncomfortable ... especially when you're used to a routine. But don't let that uncomfortability deter you from walking forward.

If your reading this, you are somehow connected to me either directly or indirectly [six degrees, right?]. I have no idea why I decided to share this with you, but someone will appreciate this [subliminal] message. With that said, Operation Transition is in full effect ... I'm walking forward ... come with me, or sit back and watch me.

WOW...This was really deep & truly inspiring!!! I totally agree with ""You can often tell how far your life and career will go based on the people you spend the most time with". I agree. The people you spend most of your time with definitely influences who you are, in my opinion." Its not until you experience certain situations, you begin to value this adage. I'm here WALKING FORWARD with you & looking forward to all that's in store!!!

You couldn't have expressed this at a better time! I absolutely feel the same way. I've already started my journey to the switch. I've noticed that I haven't been communicating with certain people as often, or at all. 2008 has been an eye opening experience for me and I know it is time for a change ... In 2009 I am not letting anything or anyone hold me back. I guess we'll be walking forward together!
