Channeling Wonder Woman
Hey Honeeyz!!!! I've missed you boys and girls terribly this past week that I've been M.I.A.!! My sincere apologies but last week was one of those where I had to literally pull out my superhero cape and gold magic cuffs and do the d@mn thing. I worked 70 hours last week, Monday through Sunday, took a Zumba class and a boxing class (my left hand knuckles are now totally scabbed from bleeding...don't let the fashion fool you), cleaned my place from top to bottom and worked on some major personal tasks (some of which I will share with you honeeyz on later posts). I survived on about 4 hours of sleep each night and had almost no time to come up for air but somehow I managed to get it all done. I guess it was in fact those super hero powers?? Wonder Woman like to be exact! Duhh!!!
And there is no better outfit than this one, which includes a vibrant power-red pant and lacy blue peplum top with gold accessories, including the cuff bracelet, to call on Wonder Woman herself and look as sexy and fun as she did while doing it! :-)
But really I sit back sometimes and try to figure out how the heck, what the heck and when the heck I was able to accomplish some of the things I accomplish just on a day to day. I think that when I'm in motion and have these goals and tasks that have to get done, I don't take the time to fret over the details...I just kick into gear and start working on how to get it done. Often times people ask me how I managed to get through college with two babies and then through law school with two toddlers hanging from the ceiling fans, cutting up and wrecking havoc (they were a piece of work) or how I manage to maintain all my current responsibilities (mom, lawyer, blogger, single-woman). First, I will say that God keeps me through everything I go through...good, bad and indifferent. I'm not perfect but I do realize that there is no way on this earth that I could keep up or accomplish 1/2 of what I've been blessed to accomplish without His grace and mercy. In addition, I'm just an extremely ambitious, relentless and determined (aka stubborn and competitive) person...Aries anyone??!! Instead of looking at obstacles wondering if I can do it, I always look at the situation from the perspective of what do I need to do to get it done. There is no option for me as to whether or not it will get done when it comes to something I want or need. It just has to get done and is merely a matter of how I will tackle it. I think that sort of thought process and perspective is the difference between being successful and unsuccessful. From there, I immediately go into planning, prepping and organizing mode. In a perfect world everything goes as I planned, in an imperfect world you run into obstacles and you act quickly to figure out how to resolve challenges as they come without losing sight of the end goal. I try not to get frazzled and hung up when I have to make adjustment to original plans, I always try to have an alternative scenario, I write everything down and check it off as I go, and I'm not afraid to use my resources (friends and family) to help effectuate certain tasks. I encourage all my honeeyz to set ambitious and reasonable goals, stay motivated no matter what, and never give up or allow for someone or some thing to totally knock you off your square. You can be and do as much as you want; no matter what it is or how challenging it may be. Sometimes you need a cape and sometimes you don't but you can do it!
