Whats good wreckless people?!
Is it too late to say Happy New Year or naw?! I remember when people used to take that greeting into February but I feel like this year after the 2nd day of January everyone was over it. I guess.
Anyway so much has been going on! I’m not shocked that this is my first post of the year but my plan has always been to blog more frequent and this can definitely still happen. Now I have several months to get this right this year:-) So don’t lose hope people!
Whats in store for the new year? There is so much. I’ve been getting back on stage! This past week I performed at Gotham Comedy Club, where we were graced by the presence of Mr. Jerry Seinfield. That was definitely a treat, I think I got so distracted that I even forgot the performance I did was a part of a competition. I placed 2nd so I will be performing again February 18th at Gotham Comedy Club 7pm. Please come out and support if you can and if you don’t have money to come, offer to babysit:-)
Happy belated MLK Day! This year celebration was pertinent especially after so many racial issues heightened in 2014. For me this day was a reminder that I am raising a black man which will require much guidance as possible, we as a black community have a lot to work on, and I need to make sure I implement exercising all of my rights that I have and start encouraging others to do the same. It is definitely easy to get distracted but getting older I realize the focus should be on actively participating in the neighborhood I live in and being involved with what is happening. So I watched the State of the Union address and there aren’t so many words from seeing it.
My motto for this year is “ask not receive not”! There are so many things Im planning to do and the support of my family and friends and you guys are dire! So Im definitely in a frame of mind where if I don’t ask for what I want/need I can’t expect to get what I want/need!
Another thing that I want to ensure for the New Year is to write it down!!! Goals, jokes, aspirations, affirmations, schedule, plans, and all of the above. WRITE IT DOWN! Make it happen, this way you can look back and mark off the things you’ve accomplished, set to do, or just wanted in your life.
As we embark on another year together, I want to remind all of my readers to spread love. Last year and the year before last were emotionally taxing. I remember being extremely anger and bitter but even in dark times, the light will shine and a true hard lesson I learned was to love people inspite of. Love yourself, love friends and family, and even the strangers who don’t wait their turn for the elevator.
Stay tuned for another great year with Aminah Imani!
