2010 - Be Blessed!

Happy New Year!

Did you miss me? I'm kidding....but no...seriously....did you miss me? ;-)

Well I missed you guys!

Am I the only one who isn't thrilled about being back at work after a week long vacation? I could have used one more day, but I'm sure we all could have...or two, or three. I had a great time with my family, and I miss the boys already. Time flies when you're busy and having fun. But 2010 is here, so let's go!

Speaking of 2010, it's a time people start making resolutions and promises to themselves. They've reflected on the past year and are determined to make changes for the better. And all of that is a good thing.

But the only thing I'm promising myself is to try to DO better and BE better with every day...all year round, year to year. No "resolutions" per se...but just living my life the best I can since God has seen fit to wake me up, breathe life into my spirit and see me through to another year.

The only thing I seek...or I should say continue to seek...is peace - to walk in harmony with life. I want to move through my world knowing that I have unlimited inner resources, and that whatever I want or need is mine for the asking. I want God to order my steps, so much so that my every gesture will be as natural as if the universe has choreographed it Herself. I want surety of movement, poise, a presence, confidence and the influence of Divine favor to grant me grace with each passing day.

Go with the flow of life, and greet each day knowing that it is unfolding in its perfect pattern. Don't let past experiences jade or blind us to the uniqueness of new ones. Don't be afraid of yourself and your greatness, because that fear will impede your forward progress. Self consciousness, which is only fear for oneself, is what keeps us off-beat and wary of surrendering to the rhythm of life.

You all are in God's care, and the universe is always there to support you. Whatever you resolve to do or be this year and every year, just know that your power lies within and that Divine presence is the source of your strength. When you understand that, the blessings - some unexpected but timely - will inevitably fall into your lap. Be blessed!

Happy New Year to most of y'all, too (I say most cuz some of these anonymouses that pop up every now and then are infected with severe bitchassness).

It's not just you, Brooke-Ra - I have no desire to be at work. I gotta get rich soon...

I'm still waiting to see you in a SU jersey! Lolz!

Brooke said...

Thanks Angela! We have to see each other this week!

BROOKE!!!

I missed you too. I didn't realize how much I look forward to your posts until they were missing from my life for a week!

Happy New Year to you all and let's get it in 2010!

Well said.

Resolutions don't work, that's why I don't make them.

You are who you are.

I just try to maximize each day – learn something new each day, experience something new as often as I can – and live without regret.

2010 sounds so future doesn't it?

Brooke said...

I know right?? How did 2010 get here so fast! I remember thinking 1999 sounded so far away!

Stephanie said...

Hey Brooke yes we did miss you. Happy 2010 to all of your blog followers. @Annamaria has already started out being first. Thank GOD no one got tasered today.@ Rameer I'm digging your jersey Shore name.I don't do resolutions. I think we have a chance to start anew anytime of the year. One of my hopes for 2010 is that the economy pick up ASAP. I know a lot of good people out of work with a wide variety of education and experience.My hope is that the economy will pick up so people can get back to work. May you all have a blessed, happy and healthy NEW YEAR.

phillygrl said...

Stephanie, I was about to say the samet hign abt Rameer..."The Situation" might take him out, but that was too funny when I saw it!lol! Happy New year everyone!

phillygrl said...

i meant "thing"

Brooke said...

We should all come up with a Jersey Shore name :-)

Mine is "B-Cat" LOL!

I hope those who were left out of a job in 2009 will find their blessing in 2010. They'll go on to do bigger and better things!

momo925 said...

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!! I'm not happy to be back at work either lol. However, I am happy that 2010 is here and Brooke is back at work. I missed my lunch buddy!

Brooke said...

I missed you too Momo :-) What's for lunch today???

And we're going to a movie screening tonight - good way to start off the week!

The Cable Guy said...

I missed you too Brookey!!

Happy New Year everyone!

And I agree, resolutions don't work. Just be a better you every day like Brooke said :)

wow..I really DID miss you! I miss your blogs! Yours is the only one I follow :)

Rameer "The Circumstance" said...

Thanks, Stephanie and phillygrl! And I agree with Brooke-Ra AKA B-Cat - everyone should have a "Jersey Shore" nickname! I've promised to make sure to see EVERY episode of that hot-mess show, if for no other reason than to watch some white cats get stereotyped and make buffoons of themselves as opposed to the gazillion shows that have people of color doing that! Lmao!

Two wrongs don't make a right...but sometimes it makes you feel better. Lmbao!

Brooke said...

LOL!!

I stopped watching after Snooki got punched in the face - that was aweful!!

I still love the name "J-Woww" tho :)

Stef said...

Happy New Year everyone!

yes, Brooke, I missed you too!

2010 is gonna be IT for me, I can feel it! I'm gonna make it happen!

Rameer "The Circumstance" said...

Brooke-Ra - you should've watched the next show! It was all about the aftermath, and how "the Situation" was trying to get some ass while Snooki was in the bathroom holding her mouth! Lmao!!

It showed Pauly D break out his Italian-themed DJ equipment...really, this show is too much to NOT laugh at! I seriously laugh out loud at least once an episode!

Brooke said...

who was "The Situation" trying to get ass from?? Some girl he brought back to the house?!!

That show IS a hot mess though. I mean, all they do is try to "hook up."

Speaking of which - what exactly does "hooking up" mean? I've heard it used several ways, but I only hear white people say it for the most part. Do black people say it too, and if so, does it have a different meaning besides "getting together?"

Powerz aka The Solution said...

"Joisey" Shore is hilarious!

2010 - make it the best year yet!

Boogiebabi said...

Hey Brooke! I was just thinking about you and everyone at office! I miss you all.
And you are right it is great to be an aunt, Jordin's first Christmas was very funny!

This is going to be a great year, I can feel it! Happy New Year Everyone!

Brooke said...

I miss you too Nikki! And happy birthday again!

"The Solution" - I like it!

Rameer "The Circumstance" said...

Brooke-Ra - he was trying to hook up with some girl who was at the SAME BAR! While the rest of the cast was worried about Snooki, he was busy trying to shuck his ducky Insanity!

Even the other dudes in the house thought THAT was grimy...

As far as hooking up...as someone who is around white people A LOT, I'd say it means getting together at the end of the night for a romantic encounter when you don't really have a romantic connection like that. So, it usually applies to people you may have just met or friends/co-workers/associates who are down at a social event and y'all are both drunk/drugged/horny. There is no prior romantic connection, and the hooking up can be anywhere from tonsil-hockey and feeling each other up to full-bore, bucket-nekkid monkey sex! Lmao!

That would be an accurate definition from what I've observed over my year on Earth.

Brooke said...

"monkey sex"? LMAO!!!

thanks for clearing that up for me :-)

Annamaria said...

Question: Can I "hook up" with my man???? LMAO

I want my jersey shore name to be A-Buzzzzzz....LOL

Brooke said...

well, according to Rameer's definition - you CAN'T hook up with your man...cuz you know him already :) LOL!!

A-Buzz has a nice ring to it :)

annamaria said...

Awwww damn oh well!!! Lol A-Buzzz & the solution will just have to call it something else! Lol
