2008...THE YEAR OF FAIRIES AND ANGELS II !!!!


HAPPY NEW YEAR Y'ALL!!!! i made it, we all made it YIPEEE....
I made it a habit of giving eachnewyear themes, it was a childish thing at first but now i take it serious, last year was my year of fairies and angels...and boy, it sure revealed itselve to be truly that.I’m glad I made it through and I did so with my loved ones, that’s one of the greatest gifts. What I want most is a new beginning, and I feel what I do on the first day of the new year would help determine how good the year would be for me. i desperately want my year to be filled with possibilities, with second chances… a second chance to be a better person, to make things right and do what i'm supposed to. I wish it were all as easy as it sounds…but nothing in this world is ever so simple, even the tiniest of them.
i chose fairies and angels as my theme for this year because i love the idea of fairies and angels... angels always are in my opinion sweet, kind, strong, and charming beings God created to guide us through life, protect us through dangers, fight off our fears, hold us and dry our tears when we cry, the idea that they are so sweet and gentle yet so strong and fierce is absoluely charming...fairies on the other hand comes in from my world of fantasy, where there are fairy godmothers to transform us from rags to dresses of silk and chiffon on our very blue and down days... in the world of faiiries you know you'll always see the sun and after ever hard turn, there is always a happily ever after...i want my life to be about that and even more this year, filled with angels and fairies...wish you same too if you dont think me insane...

its kind of funny how we take things for granted, there we were after such a fun time at the bbq(now i've been told i throw wonderful parties), i'm a good host, thanks to mom...anyway i was saying, we went in to pray into the new year and as we prayed it hit me hard that we are really blessed, january till now and we're still kicking, all the journeys, all the rougues harrasing people, all the illness and we are still alive, thats enough to be thankful about. as my cousin would say 'not because i'm prettier than them, but because i'm blessed'....

i dont do resolutions, i used to, but i realised the more i made plans of do's and don't at the begining of the year, the more i'm prone to break em', sort of like thats when my spirit deciedes to tease me and bring temptation my way, so no resolutions, just the resolve to go with the flow as long as it goes the right direction and yes theres a little resolution or two i couldnt help storing in my head 'get closer to God, and get myself a boyfriend'...the second might sound pathetic, like a desperate lil' girl, but its anything but that, i'm tired of my pretty girl bulshit, the independent woman who cantake care of herself, who doesnt need a man...well i may be that, but truth is, i'm tired, all the shakara must come to an end someday shei?

MAY THE YEAR BE GOOD FOR US ALL, MAY WE PROSPER, MAY WE FIND LOVE, PEACE, JOY EVERYWHERE WE GO, ALL THE DAYS OF OUR LIFES...WELCOME TO THE YEAR 2008, A YEAR OF BEAUTIFUL BEGININGS.....

  6. A resolution is just something to be broken anyway so make it something like "this year I promise to get a lower paying job' or try my fav, "This year i will tyra banks and i are goin to have a heavy make out session".

    closer to God works for us all and u don't a new yr resolution for that lass and as for the bf thing, well, get ready for the tears and d pain and the misery and the bloody futility of it all (hmmm, maybe i haven't fully recovered from the last one afterall).

    oh well, happy new yr fantasy queen (p.s. according to one of my fav authors, terry pratchett, fairies are mean, nasty creatures o)

    sessumahru...so we go opp to get the real deal yeah? sensible but i'll pass on that one, cos maybe it just might deciede to stick.
    maybe u really havent recovered from your breakup...sometimes things can turn out right...i guess, this is optimistic me speaking, so maybe the next guy to ask me out might end up being my illusion of a perfect relationship.(i wish)

    why you have to create room for doubt in my believe in fairies? get ye behind me...

    atutupoyoyo dont we all go through that sircle, it sucks...

    allied...seriously? like seriously theres no fantasy without fairies(well to me), not like my fantasies bother on pure sci fi, but sometimes i love to give it a lil' spice...

    and yes o, afrobabe is fighting in the new year, and she has to drag me into it...why afrobabe,why?

    little miss me, thanks and hope it is for you too.

    eb the celeb, have a happy one too, and thanks for stopping by.

  13. if you want a good man pray about it

    prayer works so if you pray long enough, and your desire is sincere, you'll get that guy you want

    by the way NO WOMAN ON EARTH TAKES CARE OF HERSELF

    i'm sorry to say it with bold letters but this is something that many women believe

    your employer was nice enough to give you a job

    i didn't say you didn't earn it

    but it was GIVEN to you

    because it could have been easily given to somebody else

    none of us are independent

    we all depend on others for everything we have


    i'm sorry for preaching
