Chasing the Dream...Day 123

Today was an okay day. I am relieved that it is Friday because this was a pretty emotionally draining week. I lost about three friends/associates, still didn't find a writing gig and was barely able to make my ends meet. But, thank God I made it through the week!

This is the good news. My internship is talking about hiring me in next week! Woo Hoo! I will let you know when I sign the dotted line. But, I am optimistic and I have a feeling next week will be the week. And, these days since I got rid of the negative folks, I now have room for people who have my best interests at heart and who will really support me.

I realize that I am a work in progress and I have some growing to do as a person and artist. One thing I really need to work on is developing a thicker skin by not allowing outside forces to take away from my truth. I want to always write openly and honestly. I don't want to be censored by people's opinions because they are just that, opinions. Also, I need to make sure that I stay as positive and optimistic as possible because I need to use all my energy to write and perform as much as possible. And that's what I plan on doing. Over the next two weeks I plan to be creatively aggressive. I will be doing open mic poetry this Thursday and I will be doing my comedy act again at a new venue the week after. Additionally, my brother will be recording my version of The National Anthem this weekend. I am recording a demo in an attempt to sing at a Detroit Lion's game this 2009/2010 season.

Have a great weekend!

I will let you know how the weekend goes.

If you lose people that means that they were not to be with you anyway. They are not a part of your destiny. TD Jakes talks about developing the gift of saying goodbye. You have to know when to let people go. Rev. Jamal Bryant talks about friendships being for a reason, a season or to expose a demon. Friendships are much like a gallon of milk. Its good until it expires.

So don't be to bummed out about it. God is making room for those that are suppose to be with you for this next phase of your life.

Much love as always, Rita!
