Happy, Magical Friday! You may wonder why I am calling it magical. Well, it’s because you’re here. And I don’t say that lightly. Believe me, I struggle quite often with seeing myself and this world as magical. There are days when I’m feeling anything but magical. There are days when I just want to pull the covers over my head and stay in bed because it feels better than the alternatives. And I can honestly say that I’ve had more of those days than many people believe. And then something happens. My daughter may say something that sends a surge of love through me. Someone I love may call me and give me the exact message I needed to hear at that moment. I may even read a book that speaks to my soul. And I’m reminded of the beauty that lies within. I’m reminded that life is bigger than my feelings. I’m reminded that Honey, it’s not that life is magical. No, it’s that I’m the magic! And so are you. And then I get up and remember like L’oreal says, “I’m worth it.”
Something changes every time I think I get myself figured out. So I'm not sure I can narrow it down to an exact science to tell you who I am. But, here's what I can tell you. I'm a mother. I'm a lover. I'm a writer. I'm a friend. I can be nerdy, funny, angry, happy, and a host of other emotions. And I also happen to be the only child to the late Bernie Mac. And there's even more to discover. In short, I'm just little ole' me.
