Retro Blog from Yahoo! 360: Why I Feel Reborn... (Originally Written 2 Years, 7 Months Ago)

*Felt The Need To Revisit This One. I Felt Really Good Writing This One, And Wanted To Share This, MAYBE In Hopes Of Helping Others Discover The Phoenix Within Them.*

"Said to live for 500 or 1461 years (depending on the source), the Phoenix is a bird with beautiful gold and red plumage . At the end of its life-cycle the phoenix builds itself a nest of cinnamon twigs that it then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix arises. The new phoenix is destined to live, usually, as long as the old one."

My eyes have been opened completely by a young lady Monday Night (aside from all the family, friends, and associates I've spoken to over the past months). I spoke with the 24-year-old daughter of a dialysis patient who frequents the Dialysis Center I attend about my "Heart" issue. She's engaged, and has 3 beautiful children. When I talked to her about my "Heart" issue, she put so many things into perspective for me, that I released all my anger that night, and felt Reborn the next morning. The Blast line, "It's not that I'm losing her. Truth be told, she is losing me," came from her. I didn't understand what she meant by it at first, but after thinking about it, WOW!!

That line went hand in hand with my earlier blog, "A Female Friend Of Mine Said To Me..." (Highlighted Blog [On Yahoo! 360]). My female friend said, "Drew, you're a great catch. Quite possibly the greatest catch out there." That line entered my mind later that night when the young lady said her line earlier that night. Simply put, I cannot go moping around about trying to get back with my ex. If it happens, it happens. If not, then no water off my back. I should live my life and experience a new love.

The release of the anger and bitterness I held was a major weight that was lifted off my shoulders. My mind is clear and I feel Reborn, erego the Phoenix reference. Granted, I won't live as long as the almighty Phoenix (LOL!!), but I will live my life to the fullest.

My P.M.S.: Profound Mental Stimulation

DISCLAIMER: These are my Thoughts, Views and Opinions on this Subject Matter. When I am given a Spark, I WILL Write Fire. I may lose you as a follower and/or as a friend. If you are offended by what I have to say, you are more than welcome to stop reading this Note, and hit the "X" on the upper right corner of the screen.

I’m going to keep this short, sweet and straight to the point (Yeah, I know. My stuff tends to run on and on, but I’ll keep this under one page).

“I Enjoy Asking Questions. It Gives Me Insight Into The Minds Of Others. I May Not Get The Answer That I Am Looking For, But At Least I Get An Answer.”

That line is indeed very true when it comes to me. I enjoy seeing and examining the Mental Workings of others with whom I interact with on a regular basis. I often wonder, “HMM! How would you react and respond if I ask this?” I have the Balls to ask (and DAMN PROUD to have them), and I fear no answer as well as no question ( is proof of this statement). Let’s examine, for example, a question I asked almost 2 weeks ago:

“If I Wasn't A "Good Enough Guy" Back When You Knew Me, What Makes Me "Qualifiedly Attractive" And "Good" At This Point In Our Lives? What Makes You Think That You Are Worthy Of Someone Like Myself? Also, If You Didn't See It Then, What Makes You Want It Now?”

I was told that I should have directed this question to those that it was “Specified For.” I Understand where those people are and were coming from. I say, why not have everyone take a crack at it? I put the question out there as a General Question so that everyone can educate me on it.

Now, I know a lot of you out there were looking at this question and was wondering if I was speaking about you. Honestly, If I was, I would have put your name on Broad Street and more than likely got reamed as well as getting called 10 types of Arrogant MotherFucker and whatnot. I put that question out there because I am comfortable within myself to Need to hear your response to that Inquiry. If I can be Honest within myself to accept that I Need to hear the Truth, then in my mind, You should be Honest within yourself to be able to answer this and many other SEEMINGLY Difficult questions.

My logic is simply this: Look Deep within Yourself, and the toughest questions can be the easiest questions. Also, if you cannot be Honest within yourself, how do you expect to be Honest with others? (OOPS!!! I put a question into my Logic! But, wouldn’t that be a logically questionable statement?)

Bottom Line is this: The more questions you ask people as well as yourself, the more likely you will be Enlightened, and the more likely you will be THAT Much More Knowledgable of Yourself and your Peers.
