These are the song titles that describe my 2010. Only the title of the song, not necessarily the lyrics to the song.

~ I'm Here

~I've Changed

~I'm Not Complete (Dave Hollister, lyrics an all!)

~Take Care of Home

~No One Else

~I'm So Excited

~So Anxious

~I Love You

~SLeeping Pill

~Take Flight

~Best I Ever Had ;)



All of these song titles refer to one thing or another in my life during 2010.

The events in my life help make me!


Just wanted to let you know I don't have internet access at the moment but I will be posting a few things shortly. Stay tuned!

It made me think about this year 2010. When it started, I physically felt this change inside me. It was more than a new year’s resolution. It was a confidence, motivation, determination. 2010 was the “NextLevel” for me.
I vowed I would not live another day feeling as low and alone as I did. I was angry, bitter, and resentful. I had hate in me. I was cheating myself.
You won’t make it to the next level (up) with those thoughts and feelings.
So I ran. I thought I was just taking myself out of a bad situation and out of the life I hated. Instead I was running. I left the situation but I did not deal with it. There were things I needed to do and take care of. I left my work undone.
“Those who are impatient, wait twice.”
Well I’m back in the situation, right before 2011. Guess what? I’m handling my ishh this time!
When I leave this time, everyone will know it, and the door will be closed and another opened.
In the song “Take Me as I am” it says she has no regrets and she accepts the past because all these things helped make she. Had I not gone through the things I did this year I would not know what I know now. I am on a different level in many aspects of my life and it feels good.
The enemy tried to take me down many times this year. I won’t brag or challenge the enemy but I will say this, You are slick and tough, you shoot to kill, I give you that but I’m tougher.. Go home!

She’s older and wiser now, God’s got my back. How else would I have made it through?
I am confident and it’s far from over. At one point this year, a couple weeks ago, I admitted that I wish God would have taken me in that car accident I was in. I immediately asked for forgiveness because that was stupid. I was in Dallas, on a 4 lane highway, in the furthest lane to the left. I was in a car, and hit by a huge van going at least 65+ mph. I walked away with an eye swollen shut. I went home that night. I didn’t even see the inside of the ambulance or hospital. I’m here for a really good reason!
You might be able to knock me down but you can’t hold me down.
Just like my dad says:
"Byrddog, the only dog that won’t bark will bite, last to run first to fight!
Bow wow!"
This is the real me!

Three Bullets

There once was a man who had nothing for his family to eat. He had an old rifle and three bullets. So, he decided that he would go out hunting and kill some wild game for dinner. As he went down the road, he saw a rabbit. He shot at the rabbit and missed it. The rabbit ran away. Then he saw a squirrel and fired a shot at the squirrel and missed it. The squirrel disappeared into a hole in a cottonwood tree. As he went further, he saw a large wild 'Tom' turkey in the tree, but he had only one bullet remaining. A voice spoke to him and said, 'Pray first, aim high and stay focused.

However, at the same time, he saw a deer which was a better kill. He brought the gun down and aimed at the deer. But, then he saw a rattlesnake between his legs about to bite him, so he naturally brought the gun down further to shoot the rattlesnake. Still, the voice said again to him, 'I said 'Pray, Aim high and Stay focused.'

So, the man decided to listen to God's voice.

He prayed, then aimed the gun high up in the tree and shot the wild turkey. The bullet bounced off the turkey and killed the deer. The handle fell off the gun and hit the snake in the head and killed it. And, when the gun had gone off, it knocked him into a pond. When he stood up to look around, he had fish in all his pockets, a dead deer and a turkey to eat for his family.

The snake (Satan) was dead simply because the man listened to God.

Moral of the story:

Pray first before you do anything, aim and shoot high in your goals, and stay focused on God. Never let others discourage you concerning your past. The past is exactly that, 'the past.' Live every day one day at a time and remember that only God knows our future and that he will not! put you through any more than you can bear.

Do not look to man for your blessings, but look to the doors that only He has prepared in advance for you in your favor.

Wait, be still and patient: keep God first and everything else will follow.

Pass this on in order that someone else might be blessed.


Don't worry about tomorrow, God is already there!!!


One of the best things my sister always told me was "you choose." Of course I didn't understand it quite like she meant. It just wasn't my time yet I guess. It too several years and going through some things, meeting certain people for me to get it.
You have to choose who you want to be with don’t let them choose you. Don't settle for the person that seems to be the only person around when you’re lonely. Choose the one who makes you laugh and smile. Choose the one who supports you and your decisions, likes and dislikes. Choose the one who knows your faults and weaknesses but looks beyond that because he knows your worth and knows what he has or would have, having you.
Choose the one you know would still bring sunshine in your worst, gloomiest day. Choose the one who encourages you to be yourself, who has seen the real you, stripped naked (not literally)... Well maybe that too! lol
This person will still love you anyway. No one is perfect but choose the one who encourages you and helps you become and continue to be a better person. Take the time to get to know your partners weaknesses. Will they have your back when you feel like you don't have one? Can you still stand strong and have their back through just about anything? Can you both hold it down for each other when you need it most in life? Now that's a life partner for ya!

2010 is almost over! Just like a dear friend said "Don't look at it as a means to an end but a beginning." I thought I would sum up my year 2010 with the 10 best words. Positive words only.

1. Determined
2. Hopeful
3. Reflect
4. Survived!
5. Manifested
6. Persevere
7. reform
8. Grow
9. Love
10. Learn

My best hopes for 2011 in one word:

1. Purge
2. Inspire
3. Discipline
4. Complete
5. Work
6. Provide
7. Focus
8. Prioritize
9. stability
10. Prosper!
