Pieces of Me: 21-30 are some of the things I’ve learned and adjusted over time to fit my joy

21-30 are some of the things I’ve learned and adjusted over time to fit my joy

I remember when I was in high school; I was so Pro-Black that it came off as anti-everything.  I look back at that stage with such admiration because it was the first sign that I could receive information and it actually created an emotion that led to action… how else would I have become an advocate?   Sounds silly, but over time I was able to find a Love of Being Black that didn’t isolate others or deny my feeling.  Growth is learning to adjust as the world around you changes based off new information and experiences.  Who have you grown into?

21-30 are some of the things I’ve learned and adjusted over time to fit my joy

21.  I love to talk but these days I find I do a lot more listening

22.  So guess I’ve learned to love listening

23.  But all of that said I am really not a telephone person

24.  I am motivated to continue growing

25.  I love helping others

26.  I am touchy, so yes I will give away hugs

27.  I love to teach

28.  I love to learn

29.  I like solutions to a problem

30.  I will offer advice but only if I would be willing to take that same advice (like love yourself first)

The fourth “Pieces of Me:  31-40 are some of the things that helped build my joy” will be posted on December 5, 2012.
