Sunday, July 12, 2009


i have set some challenging goals for myself this week. i am excited about next sundy evening, where i'll sit at my desk with a cup of tea and smile about things i've accomplished.

fast for 30 days
my friend kha'geeyah and i are fasting for 30 days. i am very excited about the fast, and it is definitely needed. i need more discipline in my life, and i want to be in my best shape. i want to cleanse my body of all the mucus forming foods i have been eating: rice, sugar, cheese, soy, etc.

we are doing a raw food fast. i'm so ready to try some of these raw 3-layer cakes and mouth-watering entrees i've been checking out for the past few years on the sunny raw kitchen...

make 10 phone calls/day
inspired by a facebook friend, kamau. he said he will make 120 phone calls this week. i told shared with him my struggle to keep in touch with many of the people i know (business and personal), and that if he makes all those phone calls he will be my HERO.

so i'm inspired. i will simply set a goal, and one action at a time, i will meet that goal. and each time, i will feel one step closer to the me i want to be...

studio surprise

this is the day i spent organizing our studio spaces. tj had been editing on the couch after work for the first couple weeks we lived in the loft, and i'd been working all over the place, as i do anyway.

i spoke to him on the phone in the middle of the day, and he asked me how my day was going, and what i was doing. i told him that i finished MY studio, because i wanted him to be surprised when he got home. he was so excited for me. "that's a big accomplishment, baby, i'm happy for you. i CAN'T WAIT to come home and start working on my studio."

his happiness for me made all the work WELL WORTH IT. i was so excited to see him excited. he came home to see his new space, all ready to fuse beats and samples and lyrics.
