In the vein of the saying, “Better to be silent and be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and confirm it,” I’ve been quietly content of late. My spirit is in a great place and I’m consistently happy – in general. I have my health – and I’m no longer a smoker! Now, let’s be clear, I’m forever an addict that can’t “sleep” on cigarettes, but I have beat the initial physical withdrawl of quitting. This weekend I again pick-up where I left off and return to the gym. My goal is to work-out hard and feel great; I’m sure the aesthetic results of weight loss and muscle tone will soon follow. My relationship with BD is in a good place; I love him, he loves me and we’re appreciating every moment we have together. I still have my job and was even given a raise and small bonus at a time when the industry I work for is dropping folks like flies; professionally, I’m blessed. So, as I ticked-off these items from my “be-happy” list, I realized that I don’t have much to say. Add to my personal blessings the fact that we now have a President of color, a female Secretary of State and a hopeful American public and you can actually say that come what may, 2009 has gotten off to a great start. So, I may not be doing a great deal of posting to my blog, but I am doing some good living. I’m laughing a lot; I’m relaxed about my future and I’m even considering an addition to my family – a puppy. For the record, I still have Busta and he will be 10-years old this May, but I may just have a large breed pup join the household. Here’s to being silent – even if we’re thought a fool – because it’s so embarrassing to watch folks open their mouths and confirm it.
What celebrity did you admire initially, only to be disappointed when they sat down for a one-on-one interview?
