A new attitude

Hola! Que tal?
Im learning spanish now. I have acquired a few spanish friends... from colombia to peru to argentina... and a few places in between and I just love them all and I want to be able to communicate with them in spanish... Im learning spanish using the free CoffeeBreak podcast from itunes. I've fallen in love all over again with my IPOD. so check it out...

Lots of things have been happening around me. I guess you could say my life is being restructured... all for the better I believe

Im grateful to God for the favor He has bestowed on my life

"goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life"... (psalms 23)

Three posts ago I was thanking God for a promotion that I hadnt gotten yet. I believed I had gotten it though and I had started operating in that mode. A couple of sundays before that while in church, the pastor had said a prayer and the message of the day had something to do with claiming positions you dont have. Infact he dared us to go to work the next day and get our things ready like we werent going to be there anymore. I didnt do mine the next day but that week I started clearing my desk... believing that I would move...

in the bible, remember the woman with the issue of blood?... God didnt say I have healed you... or my garment has healed you... he said...
"your faith has made you whole" (Mark 5:34)
so I was trusting and believing God about a new position and it became official two weeks ago to the Glory of God

On going with the restructuring: I have done some shifting in my personal relationships. Im believing that the decisions that I am making/I have made are all for the better.

I received a call from one of my really good friends the other day... BK... she was concerned that our mutual friend and I were no longer close friends. I basically told her that I bore no grudges but everyone should do their own thing on their own. She said she didnt want to know the story and I said I wasnt going to share the story either because this is something that happened months ago and no one within our circle knew. But what this friend did to me hurt me soooooooooo bad. I was crying for like two days. I even called one of my blog friends that I'd gotten close to who consoled me and gave me advice on how to go on and what to do... but I've gotten past it...

BK noted that I used to be the girl who wanted everyone to be happy, everyone to be together and now it seems that Ive changed.

Life happens... you realize you cant make everyone happy.... everyone isnt meant to be together... forever... it's life... and Im dealing with it as such...
but Ive learned several lessons: You will get hurt by the people you expect not to hurt you. Dont move in with your friends. and finally I've learned to Keep my mouth shut! I wasnt one that was free with information before... infact people think I work for some secret government agency sometimes... but sometimes... some people that you hold in the highest esteem... those are the ones that let you down... so now Ive gotten a bit more discriminatory about what information I share... smarter if you will

Hope your week is going great so far...

CHECK THESE OUT:

My friend sent me this link yesterday: Gay Christians in Nigeria
Im not sure what to write to be honest. Im a conservative Anglican so my thoughts are clear but what I sometimes wonder about is the "tolerance" issue... Im not sure how being ostracized is helping... Im not sure how things really should be handled... But I do know the "healthy" and "a gay" comment in the video was funny! and when I look at the church they were in... looks like my church... interesante... watch and listen to see what Im referring to
any thoughts?

Also I met someone who is absolutely crazy about this guy... Eros Ramazzotti.... check out his video...

Music Im Feeling: Fergie - Finally

I don't know if I can ever give up music. It's so wonderful when you find a song that says everything you had in you but couldn't quite articulate. I stumbled on a photography website today... and I was there for a while because with every featured couple, there was a different piece of music to accompany the pictures... some that I hadnt heard of before...

And that's when I heard this. I didnt know that Fergie had it in her. I was in love with Clumsy and I really liked Big Girls Dont Cry... but this... this is a whole new Fergie... I wonder why Im just now hearing this...

It's a lovely song... someone described it as pretty... and I agree... it's a very pretty ballad and even though these arent words Im necessarily trying to get out... I can just imagine being in a position where such words ring true...

Anyways check it out and have a great weekend.
Ever since I was a baby girl I had a dream
Cinderella theme
Crazy as it seems
Always knew that deep inside that there would come a day
When I would have to wait
Make so many mistakes
I couldn't comprehend As I watched it unfold
This classic story told I left it in the cold
Walking through unopened doors that led me back to you
Each one unlocking more of the truth

I finally stopped tripping on my youth
I finally got lost inside of you
I finally know, I needed to grow
And finally my mate has met my soul


[chorus]
Finally
Now my destiny can begin Though we will have our differences
Something strange and new is happening
Finally
Now my life doesn't seem so bad Its the best that I've ever had
Gave my love to him finally

Mmmmmmm

I remember the beginning you already knew
I acted like a fool Just trying to be cool
Fronting like it didn't matter I just ran away
Put on another face Was lost in my own space
Found what its like to hurt selfishly
Was scared to give of me Afraid to just believe
I was in a jealous, insecure, pathetic place
Stumbled through the mess that I had made

I finally got out of my own way
I've Finally started living for today
I finally know I needed to grow
And finally my mate has met my soul

[chorus]
Finally
Now my destiny can begin Though we will have our differences
Something strange and new is happening
Finally
Now my life doesn't seem so bad Its the best that I've ever had
Gave my love to him Finally

Mmmmmmm

Finally, Finally

Finally
Now my destiny can begin
Though we will have our differences
Something beautiful is happening, is happening
Finally
Now my life doesn't seem so bad It's the best that I've ever had
Gave my love to him finally

Ohhhhhhh, Finally, Finally

Finally
