To Chairman Dean and my great friend Dick Durbin; and to all my fellow citizens of this great nation;

With profound gratitude and great humility, I accept your nomination for the presidency of the United States.

Let me express my thanks to the historic slate of candidates who accompanied me on this journey, and especially the one who traveled the farthest – a champion for working Americans and an inspiration to my daughters and to yours — Hillary Rodham Clinton.  To President Clinton, who last night made the case for change as only he can make it; to Ted Kennedy, who embodies the spirit of service; and to the next Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden, I thank you. I am grateful to finish this journey with one of the finest statesmen of our time, a man at ease with everyone from world leaders to the conductors on the Amtrak train he still takes home every night.

To the love of my life, our next First Lady, Michelle Obama, and to Sasha and Malia – I love you so much, and I’m so proud of all of you.

Feelin’ great, feelin’ good…how are you???” (c) Big Boi

You know, I’ve been in a really good place recently. Things have been going my way for the most part.

Like I’m at peace with the world around me.

I’m having lots of fun on this roller coaster ride that is life.  And it (FINALLY) looks like I’ve got a great group of people around me…

Don’t get me wrong, I still have a bad day every now and then, but I can honestly say that the good days are greatly outnumbering the bad.

I’ve let go of negativity in my life.  Let go of the drama, especially OTHER people’s drama.

I’ve got too much ‘I don’t give a what’ in my cup!” (c) Solange

Shit that used to bother me or stress me out, just seems so miniscule and unimportant now.

The crazy thing is I don’t even know what is the cause of this newfound outlook on life.  It’s like I just woke up on a Tuesday or something and was like “I’m letting it all go.”  Whatever the case, I’m glad that I can say everything’s alright.

Your energy is best spent helping others today, especially in ways that seem low-key. Sure, save someone’s life if the opportunity presents itself, but you can also just help them move.

This afternoon, I took Babs’ little punkin Roxie to daycare, since Babs’ car was out of commission.

Who knew that my horoscope would be the truth, yet again!  I really feel like someone is trying to tell me something…and I’m doing my best to pay attention!

I can’t believe it’s been 7 years since Aaliyah died. The time has flown by. I still remember where I was and what I was doing when I found out…

Every time I hear an Aaliyah track, I can’t help but think about which artists wouldn’t even be hot if she were still alive…

What the hell?  My horoscope is super accurate today too:

A friend’s romantic relationship seems to be taking over their entire life, right about now. They are completely about the relationship and this other person and you are starting to feel overlooked, to say the least. Try not to push too hard for time alone with them — just accept the fact that they are deep in a honeymoon phase. Call up your other friends. When this person hears about all the fun you’re having without them, they’ll come around fast.

…how true my horoscope was for today:

An upcoming social event has you torn. On the one hand, you’re looking forward to it.

But on the other, you are worried about how you will handle seeing a certain person again.
