“What would you do if you were stuck in one place and every day was exactly
the same, and nothing that you did mattered?”
Just a few random thoughts floating around my brain as I clear out the cobwebs and gear up for the week ahead. Some happy. Some not....
--This morning I woke up to a freshly cleaned apartment. It was SOOO nice.
--My first thought when I looked at myself in the bathroom mirror: why do you look...surprised? Then I remembered I waxed my eyebrows over the weekend at a nail salon at the mall in an effort to save time. Bad idea. Definitely not a good look.
--My birthday is a few days away. I wonder if my ex will call to wish me a happy birthday? Probably not. But the romantic in me never loses hope. I love her optimism.
--Heard a story last night about a young Cali guy who suffered a stroke and died for eight minutes. Miraculously, he lived. And every year he throws a “life celebration” party. Made me smile. Good reminder to enjoy every moment of your life.
--Reminder: Have to make a mammogram appointment. It’s important.
--I need to stop sending out resumes for JOBS I REALLY DON’T WANT. And recognize it’s my fear of not having money, trying to convince me to make another safe, predictable choice. Fear is an evil bitch! Don’t listen to her.
--Some folks LOVE to hear themselves talk, don’t they? Am I really expected to stand there and listen as someone drones on endlessly?! At some point, I just smiled and walked away. If that makes me shady, so be it. I got a life to live over here.
--What would you do if money weren't an issue? Thought about it over the weekend. And the answer came without hesitation: I’d write a screenplay. So I’m gonna do that.
HAPPY THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK:
Enjoy every moment of your life and don't get caught up in stupid, needless worrying; have faith that the universe will provide exactly what you need.
Oh yeah, and have a happy birthday this week!! Make it fun.
