Today’s Featured Blog is… Fierce. Fabulous.Funny!!

fiercefabulousfunny

I read a blog today titled “Write Your Own Song”. It was so inspirational and true to my beliefs, I felt the need to share it. I would highly encourage you to read it.

I love to walk in the mornings. I love the outdoors. Being outdoors, breathing in the air, soaking in the sunshine is so healing for me. I especially love walks on the beach. The sound of the ocean is music to my ears. I love it. I listen to music on my walks while I reflect and pray. It’s my personal “me” time. Whether I’m outside or at the gym, music is my lifeline. My escape. I was listening to one of my favorite 80’s band this morning. For those of you that remember The Outfield, you can relate when I say, their music is still awesome today as it was all those years ago.

A Few Random Thoughts

dreambig2

It is just after 4:00 am and I am up early to get some things done for a few clients.  I do a lot of the creative ads for any campaigns I run digitally and my mind sometimes wakes me up with ideas.  So here I am; wide awake and typing when I might be better off sleeping.  Nonetheless here are a few of the things going on in my mind…

  1. I am currently working my way through all the season of The Big Bang Theory.  Currently I am in season 5 and so far it is hilarious.  I highly recommend it to anyone.
  2. Vacation for Evelina and I begins in 6 days!  I need this trip to recharge a little and Naples, Florida is just what the doctor ordered!
  3. I had a huge client sign with my company yesterday.  My coworker and I have worked on this for nearly a month and we got the word yesterday that they signed with us for all of their digital advertising.  When I close deals like this it is so completely satisfying.
  4. I haven’t been as active lately in my reading of other blogs, but that is going to change.  I need to refocus my energies and come up with a better plan.  Last time I looked there are approximately 6,700 blogger who follow my page, which makes it nearly impossible to get to every single follower.  I’m not exactly sure what I’m going to do if I’m being honest.
  5. I went to the hospital yesterday evening and had an MRI on my shoulder.  In October 2015 I had a little stumble on the staircase and the pain in my shoulder has gotten progressively worse ever since.  The specialist thinks I either have a torn bicep muscle or a torn rotator cuff.  Either way surgery appears imminent which doesn’t please me, but I’ll be happy to have a functioning shoulder again.
  6. In preparation for Naples I have been lying out in the sun for 20 minutes each day.  It seems that I have developed an allergy to the sun!  Each day my back, chest and legs develop hives from the exposure so I think it best I get a UV shirt for my trip.

That’s all for now.  Hope everyone has a wonderful Friday!!

 

Do You Ever Stop to Analyze Your Fears?

Diary of a Recovering Codependent

Where did they come from? Why are they so powerful? What gives them power?

There are many types of fears and some of them are quite valid but that is for another post. This post has to do with the silly fears developed in my younger years and are completely ridiculous for the woman I am today.

Lucy and I have had many conversations about fears…mostly mine. She seems to be afraid of nothing. Well, wait a minute; she has a fear of needles…Big Sissy! Anyway, during these discussions I realized that I use to be pretty much, afraid of breathing! Every time a subject came up, I would say, “oh, I use to be afraid…” or “I’m afraid of…” Shoot! Was there anything in my life that I was not afraid of??? These conversations sparked much hysterical laughter and endless daunting from Lucy. But through these conversations I was…

Do You Know Tom?

There are a few blogs I have followed for quite sometime that I thought I would do a little spotlight post on one of them.

I’m not sure if you folks have ever me Tom over at Tom Slatin.com, but his work is so cool.  I never claim to be any type of artist because when I see photographers like Tom it reminds me that I am, at best, an amateur.   I’ve know Tom for a couple years now and his work keeps getting better and better.  Several members of my family love his short stories too so be sure to check those out.   I know quite a few folk follow him on Twitter so here’s the link if you are interested.

The following is an excerpt from his writing notebook, dated April 3, 2017.

Sometimes I wish that I were an open book so that if by some chance, I might be understood, cherished, or admired, though thankfully in reality I’m not an open book. There’s something beautiful about being mysterious. I tend to keep my thoughts and feelings bottled up inside, posting some of my better thoughts and ideas on my blog, perhaps as evidence of sorts to support my claims of high intelligence. My anxiety and depression comes when too many people read it, or when I don’t get the reaction I was seeking. I regret sharing some things, though trivial and unimportant for fear of being judged.

 

Be sure to swing by and say hello to Tom.  Tell him Danny sent ya!!

Two Are Better Than One

From the time we were conceived, we were loved with as much strength as the human heart can muster. Most of us would do anything for mom. An even greater love comes from God our Father. His love has no limits — a love that our minds lack the capacity to understand. Would you also do anything for him — the one who loves you most?  He asks us to honor our mothers and fathers. Surely we can do that for him and for them.

That doesn’t seem so hard to do as we get older and start to appreciate our parents’ wisdom. Personally, I’d like a do over for my teenage years as I was most likely temporarily insane. I had to be hard to love at that stage, but my mom stuck it out. The incessant eye rolling and bad attitude was enough to make any mom flee…

Today’s Featured Blog is…Cursed Cursive!

Cursed Cursive

I got about 2 ½ hours of sleep last night. I am exhausted today.

I was up until 2:00 this morning because I made the decision last night to play a lovely game of “What If?” – ever played that? Let me explain the rules:  You basically think of any time period in your life and ask deep, mind-blowing questions that make you rethink how you ended up in the present.

At every crossroads in my life there have always been at least two choices. I picked one of the paths available to me, knowing I would have to live with the consequences of that path, good, bad or indifferent.

But there are a few paths I’ve picked along the way that have been totally, completely, 100% wrong. So, in my version of last night’s “What If?” game, I decided to focus mainly on one of those wrong paths.  His…

First Impressions Are Hard To Overcome

Yesterday someone said to me “You seem to have it together”; I took it as a compliment and moved on.  Later I began thinking about what he said and how he came to that conclusion after being with me in a one hour meeting.  Maybe it was my appearance? After all I was wearing my favorite dress shirt.  All joking aside, how is it that we come to conclusions about people after only having met them for several minutes?

“First impressions are hard to overcome.”  Science has proven that human beings quickly evaluate a person and make definitive conclusions about the person based on our initial impression.  And that impression stays with us for quite some time until a new pattern emerges and takes its place.

I find this fascinating.

It makes me wonder who out in this world has a false impression of me based on a chance encounter years ago.
