Learning & Growing With Alex Rodriguez

“How much can one man take?”

This is what Michael Kay said about Alex Rodriguez a few days ago, when the news about his torn labrum surfaced. Another crisis for A-Rod. The guy has been through a lot in the past year. True, a lot of it was his own doing, but tough times are tough times, no matter how you break them down and no matter who goes through them.

If you’ve read this blog before you know about some of the tough times I’ve gone through in the past year. Do you want to know something else? Like A-Rod, a lot of it was my own doing. I’m a very independent person who, for many years did not believe she needed anyone else’s help to get by in the world. I was so wrong.

In the Bible, Proverbs Chapter 15, Verse 22 says, “Without counsel, plans go wrong, but with many advisors they succeed.” (New Revised Standard Version) If I had asked for help sooner I would not be doing the following right now:

1. Un-incorporating a business

2. Facing eviction at the end of this month

3. Planning to move back home at the age of 47

4. Accepting food from a neighborhood food pantry

It’s true that the economy has a lot to do with the predicament that I am in. But if I had only reached out to people sooner,I am sure that I would not be as bad off as I am now.

Part of life is about learning and growing from your mistakes. I have learned from my mistakes. I am ready to grow. And I will not grow alone.   



Help Wanted

Pitchers and Catchers is just around the corner. That means that, pretty soon, I’ll be so busy folowing and blogging about the Yankees that I won’t have time devote to a beauty and fashion blog that I also keep. Last year around this time I hired someone to post to the blog and now believe that I need to have a second person join her.

This Blog’s Purpose

Hi, I’m Bernadette. I’m a business owner and an aspiring radio talkshow host. I’m also a devoted Yankee Fan. I publish a baseball blog called Lady At The Bat on another blogging platform.

So, why am I starting this blog?

I’ve decided that I want to have a personal blog, one devoted just to the things that go on in my life, and since baseball is such a huge part of my life, I’ve decided that MLBlogs is the perfect place to have it.

So, I’ll be posting stuff about what goes on in the life of a 40-something, single woman of color who lives in the Bronx, NY and loves her Yankees. If this sounds interesting to you, come on back and read some more. Hope to hear from you, too!
