has been eh? I’m writing my year end “wrap
up” after being inspired for years by a friend of mine who has a friend that
ALWAYS sends a similar letter each year. I though it was such a lovely notion
thus I’m starting my own tradition.
So what was new this year? Well THIS year has been full of growth
and enlightenment that at sometimes has been overwhelming, but nonetheless a
necessity in this physical experience we call LIFE.
The year started out with having to say goodbye to WONDERFUL
soul mates that had to move away on their path, teaching me the lesson of
loving from afar, and it continued with learning how to be able to release
people and projects as God ended old things to made way for new ones.
Sometimes I believe we get so attached to our
comfort zones and the people and things in it, that we hold on for dear life
and in doing so perhaps delay things our Creator may want for us.
This year, the main theme seemed to have been SIMPLIFY!
With the economy, change in the climate of artistic expression
and general demeanor of society, I was given the opportunity
to focus on the blessings and miracles we (as a society) have begun to take for
There are so many things that we truly don’t need, and so many things
we do need we forget we actually couldn’t do without.
For instance, I have a body that functions properly (for the most part…LOL).
I did not go hungry this year.
I can see and hear all the beauty this world has to offer.
I have shelter to come home to every night and most all I have
WONDERFUL people that LOVE and CARE for me and my well-being.
As I keep on the road of aligning my spiritual self with my physical self, I have been so thankful to God for a SUPPORTIVE family and AMAZING friends that uplift and support me LOVINGLY and GENUINELY and that is (to quote MasterCard)….. PRICELESS.
I think as a human race we are getting much closer to how we will live in the
life after this, (sorry all my non-believer friends you should have KNOWN it
was coming at some point… LOL) a life without judgment, without the physical,
without gender, without human limitations and only LOVE in one accord.
I/We head into 2012 with such potential and possibility that just to think of
it is WONDEROUS and MAGNIFICENT and I hope all of that WONDER finds its way to
you. If nothing else, I wish for you in the coming year(s), it’s to keep with you
that every moment is PRECIOUS and FLEETING and that as long as you are willing your path will be shown to you….. ALWAYS.
God Bless and PEACE and LOVE always be in your HEART.

Ughh.. Okay.. So how many times.. does it happen.. we’ve all be there.. I mean we are in Starbucks.. they call out our order..
“…Lightly Squeezed, High Pulp, Low Fat Orange Juice with a hint of mint for…… Sissy Debut..”
And then WHAM..
People just STAMPEDE over to my table.. wanting pictures, hugs and to poke and prod around my body.. !!!
All this is FINE with me... because you don’t walk around looking like a Tranny all the time without expecting people to look….. and small children to ask their parents.. “Mommie why is she SO tall..” to which I kindly bend down and smile to say..
“Because she LOVES Jimmy Choo…… and she’s Big Bird’s cousin”..
God I LOVE children.. (really I do.. they are SOOO honest)
But anywho.. back to me..
People ask for advice.. they want tips… information. They want to know what to do, how to make it, how to make their lives as WONDERFUL as mine.
And for them I have 2 words..
You need friends! And you need the kind that are SUPPORTIVE, TALENTED, FUNNY, INSPIRING, BOLD, BRAVE and even CONNECTED..
The old saying “you are only as strong as the people you surround yourself with” is an OLD SAYING for a reason.. because it’s TRUE..
So if you are trying to succeed at ANYTHING.. take a look at who you’ve got around you.. are they lifting you up or are they bringing ya down…??
Most of my DEAREST and CLOSETS friends also double as Dress Makers, Photographers, Producers, Session Players, Make Up Artists and just general INSPIRATION… and they were friends first.. their talents just happened to be a SCORE!!! And I would do ANYTHING and EVERYTHING for them and them for I (and we have)… and I foster those relationships RELIGIOUSLY..
So REALLY think about the people you allow in your circle … REALLY try to incorporate new and affirming people into your life and NUTURE those connections.. before you know it.. you will have a team of peeps that can have you ready for the red carpet in less than 10 minutes. You’ll have peeps that will not only TELL you, you’ve got nasal projection visible… but the BEYATCHES will reach up there and get that mess OUT for you!!!..

I think the biggest fear in life is being made a FOOL OUT OF….by either yourself or OTHERS… I mean really when you think about the things in life, that you really want to do… what are the biggest reasons you don’t do them???
You are afraid to be made a FOOL OUT OF!!!!!
Why don’t middle age men walk around in thongs, when secretly they’d give anything to know how a warm summer breeze feels on their ball sack..???
Cause they are afraid people will think of them as FOOLS…
And why don’t middle age women by that sexy dress they want in the
Cause people will think of them as FOOLS!!!
I mean hell just cause people can’t see those rolls in that Martha Stewart sheet set she’s going to be wearing (you know what I’m talking about.. it looks like you just cut a hole in a twin sheet and stuck your head through it) don’t mean they ain’t there.
So I say FLAUNT it honey.. wear those rolls like a girl scout badge of honor.. screw what people think..
When I walk out the door in the morning.. ALL I’m THINKING????
Is “it’s a damn shame I can’t charge people #4.99 a minute to look my way..”
Cause I KNOW I look good.. PHAT or FAT …BLOATED or HAUTED!!!
But I’m just thankful that I had the best role model growing up, who taught me how to be fearless and proud of what made me happy… My GRANDMOTHER…
She would spend all day Saturday in her rollers and housecoat and drive all over town, while people POINTED and STARED… but she did she care..HELL NO..
She didn’t care because she was FEARLESS… !!!
Now GRANTED some people would say it was because she was CRAZY (having 10 kids can do that do ya)…. And SOME people would say it was a chemical imbalance because our family tree merged together one too many times.. but never the less she didn’t care what ANYBODY thought and she was HAPPY!!
I remember on Sunday morning.. people would GASP because she’d break a twenty in the offering plate.. but she didn’t care… she’d just say “Look I gave my husband my muffin, my work my time, my children my life… all I’ve got left for God is a FIVE dollar bill…”.. and then quickly tuck the change in her bra…
And it was little moments like that, which have helped me to RISE beyond the fear and pretense of societical boundaries and take the cow by the horns and just give em’ hell…
Cause honey this ride only goes around ONCE, you got to work it while you can..
So the next time you are backing down from something.. ask yourself WHY???
Are you afraid of it… ??
Do you think you aren’t worth it..??
Is someone making you feel inferior?
If so you just say FUDUCK it and do it any how.. if you fall on your face SO WHAT.. at least it will give you a conversation piece to talk to your friends about..
