A Letter to the 2010 Robin

Happy New Day, Happy New Year Everyone!  I had woke up after a somewhat "interesting" night out for NYE and thought it was only appropriate to write a blog post on this new day.  As I sit here and eat my bagel and sip on the OJ this morning, I had a somewhat epiphany to write a letter to the former me (the 2010 version)that I would like to share with you.  I keep a personal journal (embarrassed smile) and I hope it will inspire you of just how important it is to just be You and live your life.

Dear Ms.Smith 2010 version,

Its a new day and a new year!  Now, I know the majority of folks are probably planning out there goals, figuring out what to cut out this new year, whether its weight, fixing finances etc.  I have to say we usually follow suite with the same things....we have been living happily together for almost 29 years now.  We have seen people come and go in our lives, we had some victories and disappointments/set backs, we had some sadness and some happiness and we have had people lift us up and bring us down.  For quite sometime now I have felt that you had felt some kind of need of approval.  Or someone to give you a road map to how our life should go.  Though, we are stubborn and tend to want everything to go according to plan.  It doesn't happen that way. When the Creator (Big G) created us he didn't equip us with a GPS on making a U-turn because there's a bad relationship headed our way or turn left here because this is the route people usually go.  But, when you think about it....why would he give us the GPS to our lives?  He has it all in his hands. :)  The simple phrase you tend or...we tended to forget. Plus, how are we suppose to grow and learn into the person the God intends for us to be.

2010 Me

Which makes me wonder why we spent so much time worrying about the things that were out of our control.  Trying to solve every problem and every other person's problems as well. ....:::Pondering::.... Why?  I have no idea. I have to smile to myself because I realize how big our heart really is.  How much we do care for people but, ask for so little in return.  This is something we will have to cease and desist this year.  Streamline some folks that have noticed this trait in us and taken advantage of it.  Because we deserve more out of our life.  We deserve to be cherished and loved as much as you do with others if not more. We deserve the better things in life and all that life has to offer.  And that's not being selfish...that's just the truth.
Oh, and this talent of need to use it more and back it up 110%.  Because if we are not behind it, how do we expect anyone else to be?  So, on this 2011 year of a new day and a new year I, 2011 Robin would like to take over this year.  2010 Robin you have made some big strides on finding your passion and in loving and taking better care of yourself but, I (2011 Robin) will get us on that futuristic next level this year.  Now, I can not promise that things will be rainbows and butterflies in the sky.  (Although I really wish they were)  I can promise that our Faith and our Courage will be much stronger this year.  I can promise that I will never give up on our talents or our dreams because someones lack of understanding or just pure jealously (Hence haters).  I also can promise to laugh more. (at myself included) along with taking the stubbornness from a 9 to a 2.     Okay....maybe not that low though.  In certain situations, you have to be stubborn.  I will streamline it better.  So, upon writing this letter to you. 

Let's live.

Love your one and only,

Robin 2011 a.k.a Robie
