NEXT 075 I’mma Be

Just downloaded a free music app on FB called Spotify and am jamming to the Black-Eyed Peas “Imma Be“.  I love the technologies that are available to us now…when used in moderation…and when we remember to put everything down or turn them off once in awhile to go outside and just enjoy the sun on our face.

I have no idea what “I’mma Be” is about…I just like the beat. But then again, I’ve always been that way with songs where mostly I don’t know what the words are (or at least a good portion of them), I just love the rhythm and beat.  Unless it comes to songs where the whole point of them is to listen to the words.

If I was going to switch around “I’mma Be” to “what I’m about”  it would be such a lovely mixed bag. Which is a good thing. There was a time not too long ago when I could not have even told you what my favorite color was (depends on how I’m feeling, but always love blue) or what kind of music I preferred (really does depend on what kind of mood I’m in).  I’ve gotten pretty good at not worrying about what people think of me (my friend’s Q and M like to say “what other people think about me is none of my business”).   Why just last week when making a presentation about a show I recommend off of the FX network (Justified) I forgot to worry about what would the other students thought (who were mostly all young enough to definitely be my offspring) as I talked about the lead character played by Timothy Oliphant as being very sexy.  Some of my older friends have helped pave the way for me to be confident at any age. Especially my friend Ty-Ty who is 70 something going on 20 something.  She takes on life, whips out her smile and catches rose petals falling in her path, knowing that they always will because they mostly do.

What I’m about is helping others to help themselves so we can help each other and so on and so forth.  Really, my personal motto turned out to be “I help others so they can help me so we can help each other”.  About five years ago, I was taken through a process that helped to figure out your own personal motto. Well, of course, I broke the process because I figured out while being asked the questions how I wanted my answers to sound and it made the end product come out too wordy and definitely did not easily slip off the tongue.  Luckily, the Coach who took me through the process was a very gentle and patient person who was able to coax the real intentions of what I’m about out of me sans too many words.  By the way, “others” represented people, animals, plants, fish, etc.  See what I mean?  It can get really complex quickly.

If you were to come up with a slogan for yourself what would it be?
