Discovery.....

You know how we all have those New Years resolutions that we never keep up??


......I guess this year is slightly different for me? Instead of making the resolution that Im going to stop opening credit cards, do better in school,stop eating candy,etc....

I have decieded that I am going to be honest,
Not saying that I am some kinda of liar.
But I want to be just as real as I am with everyone else.....with myself.

The first step started with my previous blog,
I am adding structure to my life,and if you know me.....well you know I need it.

I do what I want, I always have.....


Now I am discovering just what kind of woman I am.
Which is tricky,
I don't like to talk about things,I hate conflict,I'd rather sweep things under the rug,
I'd honestly rather laugh about.......eh everything.
I always 'save face' in every situation,I feel like I have to be a lady, I don't beer or wear sweats outside my home.



This, like most things in life ....is a process..

The tale of two identities.

As children, most of us are raised to go to college, get good jobs and strive for greatness. As black children, most of us are raised to go to college, be better than 'them' so you can't be denied, strive for greatness and act accordingly in spaces that are not our own. As a lot of us grow up, we take heed to our lessons, aiming for success, entering spaces (and tax brackets) that weren't able to be accessed by our grandparents and sometimes our own parents, but struggle because we aren't taught the rules of 'the game' nor do we start out from a equal space than our colleagues.  Imagine taking your 5 year old child, telling them they have learn all the 1st grade through 6th grade material at once in a room full of 11 year olds who are already dealing with advance placement work... So we are forced to learn on our own and quickly, how to 'act' ,where to be authentic ourselves, which hairstyles to wear ,what to wear to off hours company events,
