I’ve begun to write blogs about some of the baddest chicks around from Rachael Roy to more recently Claudette Ortiz, but I never went in on someone I know. So I wanted to go in about someone who isn’t exactly that close to me, someone who hasn’t been around as long as Ace or Lois Lame or has inspired me like my Muse, but someone who has graciously taken me on because… I frankly have no clue, but she’s one of the most “intricate(d)” people I know . Her name is Aby and she puts the “A” in Awesome! 🙂
So I wrote part of this back in December and another part in March and I kinda put it on hold cause I didn’t know exactly where I was going with it till I sat with Aby for like 5 hours talking about everything from our backgrounds, career goals, love, relationships and I suppose just life in general. After that convo, I was on a fast track to finishing this blog up and posting it, so here it is!
I met Aby through a friend of a friend of a friend and we started talking cause she was just such a magnet and usually I’m the magnet and 2 magnets don’t usually fuck with each other, but I sooo fucked with her. Why???
Shr taught me the “Power of Positive Thinking.” I knew of the concept, but i didn’t know how to apply it into my existence. I thank you for putting some time and effort in to get me on a path of “positivity” that eventually trickled down to other aspects of my life. You showed me that the brighter side of things was always and should always be the way to look at things.
So now I carry that with me through everything I do and to an extent it has worked and it will always be a motivating force in the way I live my life as the days go on.
So Aby, I can sincerely say that you’re one of the most intelligent, beautiful and overtly open-minded women I’ve ever met. You carry yourself like life has no obstacles and there’s no limitation to what you can succeed. I FUCKING LOVE THAT ABOUT YOU!
It’s something my team calls “MONUMENTIOUS.” It’s FIRE! It’s PASSION! It’s DRIVE!
Getting to knowing more about you has given me an understanding about a whole other world and way of thinking. It took me sometime to really get it because it was never put to me like it actually was and I’m so happy you made it clear to me. Everyone else I tried to get some insight from on it made it seem like I was to never understand it… But guess what???
If it’s clearly stated to me from the jump, I’ll always understand….
So fast forward to May 16, 2009…
I actually got to spend some one on one time with you that I could have used to 1. Kick some game or 2. Actually get to know you a little better. In intuition lead me to #2 because I always love looking deeper into people and from 1am to 6am I got familiar with you and I think you helped me come to another epiphany in my life that I’m going to make clear to some people when I get back from Philly.
Just like you put me on to the power of positive thinking, you put me on again and made me understand things that have been bothering me for so long and it’s about time I did the more grown thing and just accept these things for what they are; rather than try to change shit that I have no power to change.
You kinda put me on to the notion that no matter how similar people can be; everyone is different in that everyone has their own path that they decide to go down in life. You’ve done your thing and I’ve done mine. But not too many people do it like we do it either! And that’s what makes us all unique and different…
Oh and Aby, you didn’t back down or just say, “F it H… You’re hopeless.” You took it to where it needed to go till I saw it for what it was… It took like 5 hours, but you made it pretty clear to me. and I actually listened… That was so bawwwss of you DAWG!
And for lack of a better word you’re “special” and God made a special “thing” with you. I’d say “person,” but that would sort of be an insult to the fact that you’re not like other people at all. You’re more than the average person and you made that impression more evident the more we talked.
You’re definitely an Aby or more properly Abornita and thanks for embracing a seemingly hopeless dreamer like myself and taking on the challenge of being my friend. It takes a lot out of people to handle H, but like the chosen few that I hold near and dear to me (my Muse included even though she hates me right now), you’re right in pocket with what makes a nigga like me tick and that means the world to me and gives me the motivation to face another day and know that there’s always going to be room for improvement even though things seem so sweet already. 🙂
Aby… You The Fuckin’ Best. XOXO
P.S. ===> “intricate(d)” is not a real word…. 😦
