Happy birthday to me! #MakingPeopleLaughSince1971
As I've been thinking about my life on this earth I realized that I have never done things the traditional way that you are 'supposed' to. I didn't know that I should have been thinking about getting married, having babies and working a conventional job when I was younger. I was listening to ratchet music, dancing all the time, trying to find a career that fulfilled me, and loving life. And loving it hard. That is the one constant that I have always wanted in my life; love. And it's not that I don't want those so-called normal things, it just wasn't my focus then. But I feel that things happen according to God's plan and whatever is meant to happen will happen at the time that it is supposed to.
*Before y'all start telling me this is the bomb twistout I want y'all to know that it's a half wig. Best 22 bucks I've spent lately. The front of my hair was left out.*
The greatest compliment that I've ever received is that I am a flashlight. That I am like a light shining wherever I go. I love that description. I think of it when I feel down sometimes and I remember that someone (who I don't know that well) described me as a light. I love it more than being called pretty, or intelligent or funny (although I like hearing those too!) It makes me feel that the me that I am on the inside is reflecting on the outside.

My photographer friend Paul and I had a photoshoot to commemorate my birthday. More pics to come but I am very pleased with them. #IsItVainIfISayMyBootyIsLookingPrettyAwesome? #ImJustWondering
So as I enter into the Jackie Robinson year of life (his baseball jersey was 42, I feel that it's symbolic, no?) I am so grateful for it all. The best part? I don't feel 42, I feel more like I'm about 28 (except for my bum knee), and both of my parents look young so I take no credit for the fact that people tell me that they can't believe that I'm 42. I'm just glad those two got together and created lil ole me. *Ewwwwwwww, huh?*
