This is for My People

As the first month of this new decade comes to a close, I've taken some time to reflect on the past ten years and started thinking about the next ten to twelve months.

Reflecting on ten years can be a daunting task, so I'll spare you the details. In a nut shell, I've had two graduations, made great friends, traveled to far away places, fell in and out of love and left the greatest city in the world for a windy one.

Anyone that knows me well will tell you -- QQ is a planner. I love to think ahead and plan everything down to the last detail. I will even go as far as giving you an itinerary, just so you know what's coming next. What can I say? It’s the Virgo in me! Thank God I can do this as part of my career because it is nearly impossible to plan for the next 365 days.

For this New Year, I have resolved to stop planning the rest of my life today. I’ve decided that I am going to trust myself to know that every decision I make will shape the life I want to build -- not just for myself but for "my people.” No, not “my people” as in an entourage! The people who love and care for me, my family, lovers and friends– current and future.

Who knows where life will take me in this new decade, but knowing that my people are by my side makes the journey that much sweeter!

Here’s a toast to all my people!
