A New Day...(insert deep breath)!

Ok, so I must admit that I have repeatedly re-read my first post and was tickled to have my 1st comment too! (LOL-I'm such a newbie). Still, each time I read my post the sincerity of it pricked at my heart. Then I would feel a sense of least I was ready to deal with whatever "this" is.

So what was I was expecting to happen next? A magically glamorous and worldly life as soon a my feet touched the floor this morning? No, I'm a pretty logical gal...but it has hit home that fully experiencing my Neo-Soul Alter Ego begins with me. Yikes!

Today I didn't have anything exciting planned. It was so easy to stay in "because of the snow"...even though it didn't snow at all today! And while I sat on the happened. My Neo-Soul Alter Ego whispered and said to me "Let's go out today. Take your laptop to Busboys & Poets, you know you've been wanting to go for brunch...why follow them on Facebook if you're never gonna go?" I thought, hmmm...I should go, BUT (that's right the BIG BUT) its cold, I need to do some cleaning, need to get some work done, gotta cook....blah, blah, blah!

That's when I realized that this metamorphosis will be an eye-opening and sometimes uncomfortable journey. I didn't realize just how much of a stronghold my "ho-hum" life had over me. Luckily my Neo-Soul Alter Ego was being gentle with me, but I have a feeling that won't always be the case (she can be feisty!).

So, today was a reality check. Yes...I have to work, do laundry, cook, and clean...but I'll do what I gotta do so I CAN DO WHAT WE ( me & my Neo-Soul Alter Ego) WANT TO DO!

So what will be my first steps?.....ok, here it is mini-list of Neo-Soul changes for tomorrow:
  • Go to bed at a decent time tonight (10:30pm is respectable right?) and sleep in my bed
  • Exercise for at least 15 minutes in the morning
  • Pray & Meditate
  • Funk out my new hairdo (got it pressed & pin curled on Friday, don't know what to expect!)

Its a start....ahhhhh, I think I sense my Neo-Soul Alter Ego smiling with approval! I don't want to let her down! Send positive thoughts my way...if you're out there!


  1. Yay! I'm so proud of you for tackling your bucket list! Keep up the inspiring work! Mo

  2. Work your plan and don't let your plans work you.
