10 Years

It's no secret I'm sentimental. Well, it's not if you know me that is. I'm so bad I remember what I wore when and even what folks ordered to eat from special times. Seriously - I have trouble rememberin' stuff from last week or even that morning. But sometimes I just get lost on memory lane.

That was yesterday for me. The funny thing was I didn't want to talk about it. Not at all. In fact I wasn't going to post on it. But as I read last years ponitification I realized how different things are after only one more year.

In my mind.

Oh, I'm still mad at him. I'll probably die mad at him. I guess I'm just not as forgiving as I thought.

And even after the past 4 months - loss of job & home as well as a few other "things" I'm just not willing to mention - my confidence is strong. My pride has taken a beating, but not my spirit. Some folks may look at me and agree with his final words......but that's their loss. I know my value (or at least have a better grasp than I ever have). My desires have changed - it's all about quality. Quantity? Yeah, not what it's cracked up to be - let me tell you.

10 years. It's taken 10 years to admit it's ok. The whole flippin' thing was OK. I firmly believe that we should learn and grow from every experience. To use what we've learned to help others. Period. And trust me - in that case, I got a lot so share, folks.

The last decade has really been all about me. I'm thinkin' it's time to move on.

even when we think we have gotten ALL we can from the experience.

I wouldn't sweat it. You're still hot, you're smart, you have a career, you have a place to live, you have a bunch of perverts- err, readers that hang on your every word, and you still look good in a pair of jeans. Millions wish they were there.

10 years. And look at all you've accomplished.
