Challenge Post #2

Day 02- The meaning behind your Blogger name 

Blog #1 - I am a city girl at heart and ALWAYS will be.  New York City to be exact - born and raised in Rosedale, Queens.  My tag line for my poetry in college would be Rose from Rosedale - A Queen from Queens.  Hence the title of this blog site.  I hope that my experiences are able to help someone and I look forward to all I will experience on this journey.

Blog #2 - "Every Rose has its thorns" is a quote that I feel best describes my personality.  Basically their are imperfections in every person and in every situation.  I am loving, kind, loyal, determined, educated woman who loves to smile which could be characterized as the beauty of a rose.  But I feel the perception of me is not always that.  I've been called a B*tch, told I was too serious, told I was too hard on people, that I had a terrible attitude or that I expected too much.  These are things I consider to be thorns.  I try very hard to show my "rose-like" qualities instead of the thorns but sometimes they need to come out :)

I have grown a lot since college and I'm sure those college peers would not believe I am the same Stacy and its because....I'm not. I don't get the same satisfaction from the things that I've done and I am not proud of my behaviors.  I have apologized and come to grips with everything being in the past and have even rekindled some friendships.  Everything is a growing and learning process and those experiences were a part of mine.

The fact is...No one is perfect and that includes me.  As everyone grows and matures we learn more about each other and ourselves.  We learn our strengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes.  I have come to like myself, the person I have become, the friendships that have remained and the new ones that have formed.  I am surrounding myself with people who understand that even best situations have their down sides and that negative situations can have positive outcomes, because every rose has its thorns...
