**I wrote this a while back… finally deciding to post it.**

Someone told me I was beautiful a few days ago and I didn’t say anything in response. I’m not fishing for compliments. I really wasn’t feeling that way. The day before that I had a conversation with someone who loved me, as they proceed to tell me about myself. It was the first time someone ever called me out on some shit. Idk why this has never happened before, but that shit hurt like no other but I had to respect their honesty. I mean how many people walk around feeling someone kind of way towards you and actually tell you?

I’m disgusted at myself for behaving in the manner and unfortunately there is no second chance offered to fix or mend things. Knowing that felt like someone kicked me in the gut.

I’m at the point of self reflection on how not to repeat these grievances again. At this point I cannot even look at myself in the mirror.

All In The Details

This is about work… well work signatures. Boring right!?! But you never realize who pays attention to the details. So my work email has the usual things in it:

Name

Title, Department

Number

Fax

Email

But of course your girl is a big fan of quotes. So I add a quote on mines. Usually something about work ethics. Most people just dismiss it, but not this one Assistant Commissioner. They made it a note to tell me they look forward to reading my quotes. They see that I change them every so often.

What does one say to that?! Thanks right… now I’m more thoughtful when I change it. Anticipating they’re comment on it.

I said all that to say, you never know who is paying attention in the work place.

Remembering 9/11

At work we acknowledged the 34 men and women coworkers, who made the selfless contribution to drop everything and to assist with the recovery efforts at Ground Zero.

One of the speakers, spoke about how we all remember where we were when this tragedy happened. How we came together as US Citizen, no matter the religious backgrounds and race. It was a beautiful thing to see.

I remember where I was that day, at home preparing to go to my first class at MCCC. I watched as the news played and the first plane struck the first tower. I stood there in disbelief because somehow it couldn’t be real. Dazed and sadden by seeing people jumping to from windows to get away and sadly losing their lives.

I was proud of the United States as we rally together. I wish our sense of pride and love for our fellow men and women was still strong.

Please take a moment out of your day to thank a first responder, local fire fighters, police officers and fellow Americans who protect and serve our country and come to help when tragedy strikes.

Remember those loss to this senseless act of terrorism.
