Real Life Movement

Author: Tafari, Tuesday, January 24th, 2012 at 11:12 AM Mindspill

Yes! It’s true! I’m almost single... I haven’t shared this publicly before now but I am in the process of a divorce. The last few months of my life have been fairly turbulent but I am committed to pull through this event. 2012 has a whole lot in store for me. The ending of many things & the beginning of many more… I feel ready for it all but that feeling comes and goes like the Dexter bus (Detroit reference). On A Positive Note:
  • My kids are pulling great grades in school.
  • Three more months left of school and I will be walking across that stage and joining the Educated Negro Elite.
  • My sister and I have reconciled and are back at one.
  • My brother is out of the hospital and doing much better.
  • I’m now a bowler. Well not really but I am really enjoying this sport. And I totally have to get my own bowling shoes because the rented shoes are NASTY.
  • I still believe in the power of love.
  • I look great in fancy man scarfs.
  • I leave for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in 2 weeks!

    well…you know the cliche…”and this too shall pass”

    I prefer you in the ascots, but you know, to each his own! I’ll miss you when you join the Boule! :)

    “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way…” belief in the possibility of resurrection and transformation is what has and will get you through this! Godspeed baby!

    Divorce is never easy, sorry to hear it. But you’re off to a good start with the support of family and friends. I wish you the best, there is a new freedom ahead of you. New possibilities and opportunities are what makes us grow. Chin up, feet forward, charge!!!

    As I said on Facebook, ’tis a new beginning. Best wishes that your transition will run as smoothly as possible.

    Side note, congrats on your kids getting good grades!

    Sucks that your longtime union is about to be broken, but on a more positive note, your kids are doing well in school, and your photography career’s taking off, and you’ll be through with schooling for awhile.

    I really hope that you and the Missus will reconcile (but it’s in the hands of God right now).

    Like you told me some years ago, keep ya head up!

    Haven’t said hello in awhile…just wanted to send you good spirits. Embracing change can be challenging, but I guess we just have to lean in…

    Hey man, although we’ve never met in person, which I’ve always regretted all the times you’ve visited NYC, I still had a sneaking suspicion that something was happening with you because I just randomly thought about you the other day and realized I haven’t really seen you on fb. I looked you up and only saw the professional page.

    Being a married man I’m currently witnessing these changes with other brothers I know. But change happens and most importantly, people do. We grow out of our skins, shoe sizes, and lives. So I offer an ear to be heard. I know we don’t know each other like that, but the offer stands. Peace to you and your family.
