I tend to veer on the side of optimism. The glass is half-full for me. Life is too short to always look at things negatively. When faced with a problem, I take the “put your big girl panties on and deal with it” approach.
I also have an allergy. A severe allergic reaction to DRAMA. Don’t get it twisted, I can roll with the best of them if it comes down to getting dirty but I prefer not to bring unneccessary stress into my life if I don’t have to. Why would I embrace someone else’s issues when I have my own?
I think being in the Hotel Biz has given me the innate ability to deal with sticky situations. I am usually calm in the face of storms. The voice of reason. The go to person when you have a problem.
Sometimes, people mistake this calmness for weakness. Some people react to situations with VOLUME. I observe behavior. I understand people. I think. Then I strike.
I always tell you….I am the nature of my horoscope. Cancer, the Crab. I let everything bounce off the shell while I lay in the cut and observe the situation. If it’s not for me….I go back in the sand and mind my own business. If I need to attack….I strike fast and cut to the quick.
I think I know that I have an evil streak and when I say something or react a certain way….I will go for the jugular and really HURT someone. So I try to be careful with that power.
I use the force sparingly. That way, when I use it…..it’s highly effective.
And yes, I said evil. 1969 is not all sunshine and rainbows. I have a positive outlook on life but I am a product of my upbringing.I have that Caribbean blood mixed with the Brooklyn Hustler mentality. I can revert to survival mode with the quickness.
Many a fool has slept on me and assumed what my reaction would be…..they learned. LOL
As Mr. 1969 would say…..I am the perfect mix of class and hood. A Chanel suit wearing broad packing heat and a switchblade. LMAO!
Who are you?
