MY BIRTHDAY EVE & 1000 THINGS I WANT TO DO BEFORE I DIE!

Tomorrow is my Birthday! 45!

Yesterday was an amazing day. Nothing in particular happened. I was just feeling all my Grown Woman-ness. It was sexual and spiritual. It was energetic and peaceful. I was rolling with all cylinders blazing. I was in my ZONE! Yesterday was a turning point. Another shift in my journey has moved me to another plain.

So for the next year, I am going to post 1000 THINGS I WANT TO DO BEFORE I DIE! This is not a morbid exercise. It's really about living the best possible life, helping myself to all life's richest desserts! I am taking my cues from a few of my blog friends:

I am READY! like my Blog Brother That Johnson Boy Said What! I am putting all my oars in the water like my Blog Sister CapCity. And I am certainly taking cues from Raw Dawg Buffalo...Live Free or DIE! I am changing MY game thanks Rich House. What's important is right now. I have learned that from my Blog Sisters Princess Tinybutt and Not Just About Cancer. My Blog Twin Sister Just Write Now! With Sharon says in her profile: SHE IS A FAMILY WOMAN! I am too! I am too and I LOVE it! Yes there is a sensual side that needs equal attention, My Blog Brother Xavier over at Lovers Anonymous and my Aussie Sister Miss Smack over at Honey Smack shows me the joy in living with your sensual side up front. I am not hiding anymore! I am cultivating the artist in me like my Blog sister The Artist In Me and Mizrepresent Write for Life. And discerning my spiritual self and my divinity with my distant Blog friend Sojourner G and my favorite spiritual photographer Tony OH!

This is the best time ever. I am ready to live the biggest life possible. I am not afraid of tomorrow. I am not afraid of anyone or anything. My heart is open, my mind is clear. I am ready for love, life and the pursuit of happiness!

1000 Things I want To Do Before I Die!:
  1. I want a knock your socks off, curl your toes KISS!

  2. Learn to knit with my daughter Briana

  3. Take an art class---Painting, sculpture, book-binding

  4. Study culinary at the Paris Sorbonne

  5. Be kissed under the Eiffel Tower

  6. Make Love in the Serengeti in Tanzania, Kenya

  7. Take the Orient Express form Istanbul to Paris

  8. Live in Africa ( not sure where exactly--open for suggestions) for a bit

  9. Visit Prague, Czech Republic
  10. Herd cattle with the Masai in Kenya

May 2nd is My 45th Birthday

I am celebrating with

poems, prose and love missives

FROM YOU!

The Artist In Me said...

You inspire as much as your are inspired by others. I hope that you know that.

The 1000 things to do before you die is a great idea. I watched the Bucket List not too long ago and it really made me think about life a little differently. They lived life to the fullest and fulfilled everything on that list in one way or the other.

Like a friend of mine reminded me this weekend, we ought to wake up each morning with purpose on purpose.

Keisha "Kitten" Isaacs said...

Hey Sistah!

This is a great idea! You've already got some great things to do on your list. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the list!

You are so strong and ferocious!

See your goals, smell your goals, envision your goals and plan on how to get to your goal, from the goal and work backwards.

You can do anything you put your mind to.

Thanks for the mention, sweet-thing.
