Risking It All And Hoping For Reward


Risking It All And Hoping For Reward

Sujeiry Easter SundayI woke up this morning, my mind fully motivated and focused. My body, on the other hand, was screaming for mercy and had a strong desire to karate chop my mind – if I could lift my arm without wincing. You see, yesterday’s super Sunday workout worked me into a state of muscle spasm. My back is so sore it hurts to breath.

Damn you, Jillian Michaels!

Regardless, I am disciplined. No matter how much it hurts to type, I am on my Mac, working on my future projects. Here is what’s on today’s agenda:

  • Finish working on my new and improved vision board. It must be the fifteenth I’ve done but this one is better aligned with my desires. No bullshit this time!
  • Write posts for, of course. I have cranked up my number of posts and am now publishing pieces every day of the week, sometimes more than once daily.
  • Email a few contacts that I have been meaning to speak to regarding writing opportunities.
  • Film a comedy spoof that’s been on my mind for months. It will be HIGHlarious!
  • Write a chapter of Love Trips the book. I WILL finish this book before the end of summer and it WILL be in a bookshelf near you by the end of 2011.
  • Begin research on creating a one-woman-show. It’s brewing in my head!
  • Play with niece because everyone needs a happy break!
  • Workout because apparently I am a masochist.
  • Last but not least, I am going to do a nationwide search for TV hosting opportunities. This goal is terrifying but something I planned to do last year in November before I met my boyfriend. Then we bumped into each other on the uptown D train and I couldn’t fathom leaving the relationship to move to Kentucky or wherever I would land. Now, since my relationship is flailing, I am seeing it as a sign from the Universe to stop sacrificing my needs for someone else. Though I love my boyfriend, my happiness does not depend on a man and I know I will regret it if I do not pursue my dreams wholeheartedly. Besides, that’s what sperm banks are for.

As you can see, there is a lot on my plate. More than some can chew, really. Still, I know I have to take these risks. If that means I have to leave my family, friends, and my boyfriend to follow a different path in a different city then so be it. But don’t let my tough exterior and determination fool you. It is definitely easier said than done. I know myself.  I am very attached to my loved ones. If that time ever comes, I will be in more than just physical pain. My heart will break and ache, experiencing it’s very own kind of spasm.
