Gotta Find My Groove

So I'm sooo excited about this blog and just trying to find my natural writing groove. I often write songs and poetry(when I get the urge) but this online journaling is altogether new. I can't excape writing on tidbets of paper, receipts, or magazine offers...It's like I become the most creative when I have absolutely nothing to write on. Yesterday I wanted to start the blog off with something like Meaningful Monday or Motivational Monday... something inspirational... but as soon as I got to work it ended up being Madness Monday!!! So I'm in a new area, new job (which I hate) and Madness Monday I'm sure will continue later on today, way into a Madness week. I will not detour from my original plan of having Monday as a day of inspiration, which will ultimately set the work week in order. My question for you all is:
What Are You Proudest Of In Life?
Since I've moved here I've heard from family members and friends "I am so proud of you". And I'm like why? Most of the answers surround the fact that I basically picked up and moved from my oh so comfortable comfort zone to a place where I have yet to set my mark(how I long for my days of being the black sex in the 'bany). When I sit and ponder the fact of people being proud of me I feel great, but ultimately what I'm proud of means the most, often the two are not the same. What I am most proudest of, is the fact that God places people in my life which aid me in this game called life. I have a supportive family and my friends are the best..every now and then he allows me meet perfect strangers in perfect timing... some for a reason and others for a season. That being said I'm sure I'll find my groove...gotta go to bed its after 2 am!!!

Well if you haven't heard it from me....I am definitely proud of you. I have watched you grow so much over the past few years. And I am proud to have met you and have you part of my life. I don't think this world is ready for your beauty, intellect, wit and talent...but you give it to them anyway. I love you front. Peace.

I really don't know how a blog works, but I'm going to try my hand at it. I am most definitely proud of you. It takes a lot of courage to pack up and just move to an area where you barely know anyone. Like I have told you before, if I wasn't married, I would love to experience someplace other than GA for a few years. As far as what I'm proud of, I would have to say that I'm extremely proud to be the daughter of the Late Cheryl Denise Jackson Mack, Also known as "Chocolate." It was such a privilege to have spent 28 years of my life with such a caring mother. Although I miss her, I must continue to uphold the things that she taught me. I love you Chocolate.

Kristin!!!
I wanna cry!! I can't tell you anymore that I'm proud of you.. You amaze me everyday. I am so happy that you are finally showing the world what I've seen you emerge into over the past 8 years... I remember when you wouldn't even enter contest to show people all of that raw talent that you have, now you're letting the world in on what I saw the first day that you walked into our remedial math class and gave our teacher a run for his money with all of those witty comments! So once agian I'm proud of you girl, for who you are, and for the woman that you are becoming... I'm lovin it!!!

You have quite the fan club Kristin.

I am liking your blog thus far. Thanks for stopping by my place and I will definitely make this a regular stop.

Hey guys thank you so much for leaving comments, they all meant a lot. I am wiping tears quickly(while listening to Natalie Cole's Inseperable on my Ipod). I hope my manager didn't see and asks what's wrong to only find out I've been B.A.W (blogging at work). Take care and I hope you continue to enjoy even when the newness wears off...Mek you put me on front street with the remedial math class (first friend to give me a serious attitude adjustment)LOL!!! Amber you are forgiven I was just reading in my daily devotional that through our trials we learn trust, compassion, patience, and other attributes... which may have been re-established to me through our situation.
