Hanging up my DIVA coat with 2009...



Be forewarned lol It's been a minute..



2009 was a very valuable year making 29 a very valuable age for me... Almost as valuable as 26 (talk about a major turning point!) it's been one of deep reflection, growth, wisdom, new perspectives and understanding, happiness and growing pains but lucky for me because I haven’t even touched 30 yet.

Over the past decade I've made a ton of achievements and a ton of mistakes! If I knew at 20 what I know now at 29 I'd be writing this note to you from my yacht!

So in the interim of the past decade I've accelerated my education towards 3 different careers of which none are any longer my true passion in life and I'm developing a dream that I am working oh so quietly and diligently to launch full force one day tip toeing with it in my back pocket into 2010!!

Since 2000 I've played keep up with the Jones...the Milstein’s, the James’ and the Rockefeller’s on levels of style, travel, personality, life experience, education, culture, hmm and probably lots of other levels like real estate acquisitions, lol 1 condo and 2 houses. I've kept some really valuable lessons from each experience and abandoned lots of useless bits of information.

After doing some brief mathematical calculations I've come to the conclusion that I've spent almost $500,000 cash over the past 10 years on my habits and lifestyle...I've also leveraged almost $1,000,000 in credit for real estate deals and education!

My philosophy was money is made to be acquired and spent, you will always get more, and you can't take it with u etc etc etc because the better you manage money the more credit you can acquire and the more credit you acquire the more things you can do.

My philosophy on fun? Life is all about fun and that should never be compromised or sacrificed at all. You should meet new people, travel, party, and pop bottles, as much as possible all while looking fabulous in designers that one else in your circle have heard of lol at whatever price that comes, you should do what you want, when you want and with who you want while drinking and eating like a Queen because these are the experiences which last a lifetime and good food with great friend gives us great memories!

They say the 30's for a woman is transformational its when you stop caring about what everyone else thinks and only what you think... Guess what mi gente? Hallelujuh I've arrived! ;) and not a moment too soon I will be 30 in 91 days!!!

In the past decade I've learned that everyone who you think is your friend is really not, that your number one hater is typically already in your inner circle and that a lot of those nights spent feasting and drinking for no reason are just a cover up for boredom, insecurity, loneliness or unhappiness for a lot of people...(It is better to be alone than in bad company- George Washington)

In addition I've learned that no matter how infinite money appears you should always always always save some for a way off rainy day that you could have never even seen coming. Learned you don't ever lend money unless you can really afford to not be repaid because friends, loans, and the word default don’t really mix.

Perhaps two of the most valuable lessons by far has been that #1 family is invaluable, whether they are the group of people you want to be exactly like or the group that you want to be totally opposite from, EITHER ONE IS AN INVALUABLE GROUP TO HAVE! Besides they are the only people who still HAVE to put up with you no matter how jacked up or fabulous your life becomes.

#2 the Jones don't really care how much you try to keep up with them... So to keep spending your hard earned money frivolously to keep up with a group of people who don’t even know you exist is pretty asinine! And if you are looking for acceptance by a particular group that excludes you, um what does that really say about them…and you for that matter.

So what does all of this mean? What is hanging up my Diva coat? Well basically a Diva to me always seems to have something to prove and I don't have anything to prove to anyone, I love me and you are either going to love me too or hate me, either one is fine with me, we all need haters, without you guys I'd have nothing to step on as I ascend towards my destiny. (wink)

Plus once you are dubbed a Diva I feel like there becomes this invisible standard of life and living that must be maintained at all times lol if not you are considered "caught slipping" lol Sorry the only standard I’m interested in sustaining is my own....aww I love getting older and wiser there is no better feeling than REALLY AND TRULY feeling good in your own skin..

But don’t get it twisted lol does this mean I’m no longer stepping out on my p and q's in my daily pursuit of life love and happiness! Of course I am!! The motivations have just consciously shifted I'm doing it all for me mi gente, lol not for any of you!

Happy New Year!
