Exhausting All Possibilities

I am the Queen of Unfinished business.  If you take a look in my guest room you will find half done knitting projects. Three scrapbooks I have attempted to put together, and an array of other “projects and hobbies” I told myself I would finish.

It’s not that I mean to bail…I just get tired, frustrated, bored, and well…..let’s face it…I’m lazy.

My mother has been trying to teach me to knit for 20 something years. It has been the source of some of our greatest fights and shouting matches. She would get me going on a couple of rows and then it happened…..the two year old fit and the same excuse……. Continue reading

Be Amazing…..Not Normal

I have a Dilemma.

There… I have said it.  It is out in the open.  I have absolutely no shame in making the above statement. My body screams, “Girl…Get fit!” But my stomach responds… “Need Tacos…STAT!” It is a constant struggle, and let me be honest…The tacos usually win.  Continue reading

Be Willing

It amazes me how I never stop learning. When I was younger I thought by the time I was at least 40 years old, I would have this thing called life figured out. Now at the ripe ole age of 41, I have found, I am still a mere pupil.

I would love to tell you that I am a Generous person, who gives of herself freely….but that would be a falsehood.

I am terribly selfish, greedy, and lazy. All too often I concern myself with foolish things instead of seeking how I can give to others. Now, I am not saying I am not filled with compassion, because I am, but sometimes I am too lazy or self absorbed to act on those feelings of compassion. Continue reading

Let The Sun Shine….AGAIN!

Well, I was nominated once again for the Sunshine Blogger Award. Thank you so much BEXoxox Blog for the shout out and nomination! A while back I said I wasn’t going to participate in any more of these awards, but you know what????? Someone took the time to read something I wrote and they liked it! They thought enough of my words to  recognize me and give me a shout out, so I in turn accept the nomination and proudly display for all to see.  🙂 Now, awards aren’t for everyone, so if you don’t accept…hey that’s fine too.  🙂 Continue reading

My Moment

I have heard it said that Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.  Now, I am not going to lie, I always thought my life would END at the end of my comfort zone. I could just picture me taking a leap out of a flying plane, only to hear the pilot say as I made my exit…. “Hey! You forgot the parachute!

I longed for adventure and change, but I could not get past the fear of what MIGHT happen if I opened myself up to it. Seriously…..so much could go wrong. What if I looked stupid? What if I totally botched it? What if I thought I was totally rocking it and I fell flat on my face? Continue reading

Don’t Miss It!

Have you ever just gotten so bored with day to day life?

Get up.

Sit in traffic.

Go to work.

Do 500 errands.

Go to bed.

Repeat.

Perhaps you feel like you are sitting in the classroom of Ben Stein in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off….. Continue reading

Loveable Mess

If you were to look up the word Elegant in the dictionary, I am pretty sure this is NOT what you would see.

I admit this was not one of my finer moments. Having the uncanny ability to get myself into some interesting and questionable situations seems to be my forte. I am clumsy, awkward, sloppy, and well……simple.

Elegance is often seen as the well put together lady. You know the one I am talking about….the lady with perfect hair, perfect nails, perfect clothes, perfect smell, perfect make-up….

Just perfect….. Continue reading

Time’s Up!!!

Tuesday????? Already???   Was it just not Friday with a three day weekend ahead of me 5 minutes ago??????  What happened? How did I miss it????? Where did it go????

This was the conversation I had with myself this morning as I got up to get ready for work. It is Tuesday… the day after Labor Day, and I find myself sitting here wondering…Where did my 3 day weekend go???

When I left the office on Friday afternoon I had big plans for the weekend ahead.  There was dinner with girlfriends to kick off the glorious 3 day weekend, and then I had plans to get my house organized and maybe see a movie. All my loved ones were out of town or busy, and I can’t hike right now, so it was time to get caught up. Continue reading

Even In Australia

Have you ever had one of those days where you wake up feeling pretty good, excited about the possibilities of the day ahead only to be hit with a cloud of discouragement, worry, fear, regret, confusion, and anxiety?  A literal rain on your parade kinda day.

And now….you are stuck…. in what I call an Alexander Day. Continue reading
