I need a vacation asap!!! My friend and I were talking about leaving and going on vacation for the past 6 months. We haven't seen each other in the last 8 months so it was long over due. She stayed in another city and I had just move back to North Carolina after staying in another state for about 4 years. A lot of things had changed since the last time we seen each other but at the end of the day that was still my girl so it was time to get turnt up for the summer. Our friend wanted us to come to Florida for her Birthday for a week. Can I say, Perfect Timing!! My friend and I scheduled the time off of work and got everything ready for the trip. We got the car rental, food, and drinks for the 10 hour drive. We was Geeked!! The traffic was not as bad as we thought and we only stopped a few times. It was my second time being in Florida so I already knew how the weather was going to be and that's what I was looking forward to.
Reliving past experiences can be daunting but necessary for growth. So I'm going travel back in time and tell you about when I decided to take a risk and live in the moment. Being spontaneous was never my strong suit as well as taking the time to smell the roses. After my divorce, I decided to live a little and dive back into the dating scene. I never dated outside of my race for reasons that made logical sense to me. Being an African-American woman, dating someone of your own race seemed like the ideal thing to do. Plus, I didn't want to feel like a sell-out for crossing into certain territories. Despite my unease with the possible pursuit of someone who wasn't Black I decided to try it. For once, I wanted to be spontaneous.
