What’s Sam?

May 26th, 2004 8 comments

Well it’s time I resurfaced from MIA over the past month to shed some light on what’s up me. In the past year and a half my life has changed slowly but surely in many ways professionally and socially. I won’t bore you with the professional things but there are quite a few things from the social life. In the past 30 days my social life changed rapidly but more on that later…

I had been single now for about 1.5 years after walking away from an engagement, a beautiful wife-to-be, and a wonderful 4 1/2 year old to pursue a true personal happiness within myself. In the time that would follow I would make new acquaintenances, avoided several relationship-hopefuls, and repair myself emotionally. I met a group of young men and women that made Detroit a good place to be – they made it feel like being back in St. Louis where I grew up and knew people who knew me. I met people who made me think, who made me weak in the knees, who made me smile and frown, etc. I talked with people from one side of the globe to the other and befriended people who truly were of inspiration to me. It has been quite the journey. I’ve watched people all around me grow and transfer into new and improved individuals with new vision and focus in their lives. Others I’ve watched lose focus and hope over this time period….

The last 22 days have been the most unexpected. Not because I’ve had some really challenging days at work and doing this whole project management thing. But rather because a woman who was a absolute stranger came into my life completely from nowhere and changed things for me all around. She was undeniable and somehow we managed to sweep each other off our feet and write in large part a fairy tale of a relationship from day one. We’ve committed to each other and for the first time in a while, I’ve let someone in close unabated to see just how far things could go.

So now I find myself in a new relationship with new love and hope for future when it comes to significant others. Make no bones about it – it had to take someone truly remarkable to bring me out of sabatical, but that she is and some. She didn’t have to steal my heart – I served it up deli style to her. No disrespect to all who have come prior or wanted to. You’ve all contributed to me being the man that I am in many ways and I thank you for that. I believe often times the relationships that you learn the most from are the ones that didn’t work…

For those of you who already are aware of things that have taken place for me, thank you to the supporters, especially Ree. For you haters out there…well I won’t get out character with you on here but step off. Ebonni – keep that magic dust close and I’ll do the same 😉
