The First Few Weeks Of 2013...

It’s been a couple of weeks into the new year, has anything monumental or memorable happened in your life? Yes? No? Maybe?
Well…it has been good on my side. I got official leave from work and the rest and relaxation has done a lot of good. Y’all know I was in a bad place by the end of last year. What I didn’t know then but do now is; I needed time off to myself – do nothing, to be and make peace with some of my negative thoughts, a break from listening to other people’s problems and to pick myself up from the emotional dump I was in. Before, being home for so long would get to me unlike now. Either this is another part of growing up or I am this used to my own company and love it!
Are you wondering about what I am or have been doing with myself? Hmmm…I’m reading A LOT, watching re-runs and current episodes of my favourite show The Big Bang Theory, slowly learning and practising my French with a friend. On a random day without electricity, inspiration struck and I went with it. I had two drawings done!!! I can’t believe I actually drew something after years of semi retirement. I came across the quote, ‘Art is the sex of imagination’ so many years ago and could hardly remember it until I was drawing. It ran through my mind the entire time... I probably needed it…LOL! And I realised I need to date my drawings.
Since the year begun, I had the insurmountable urge to cut all my hair off so much so that I took out my weave in three weeks of doing it. What’s been holding me back? It is the thought of looking like a boy aka R Kelly whom I compare myself to. I think we have the same facial structure because of a picture I took back when I cut off all my hair. Fortunately, someone wiser suggested I start halfway; take half off, which I did. My head feels lighter so does the hair. I can feel the wind on my scalp!! Baby steps. When the mood for glamming up strikes, I shall take a picture and share.
That’s my first few weeks of 2013. Considering that I am still on leave, the days and weeks to February are most likely to drift in the same manner.

We have no say over the memories people choose to keep of us. We only have it over the feelings we evoke in them.  Those last longer ...
