To Do List

My “to do” list consists of a variety of things.  Things that seem necessary to remember at the time.  Get the oil changed in the car.  Put the empty water bottles out.  Check the mail.  Pay the bills.  Go to the grocery store.  Make a hair appointment.  Take son to get a haircut.  Put in for time off at work.  Reschedule meeting with child’s teacher.  Water plants (they are dying).  Finish craft project.

These are just some of the things on my list, but one day I added three things right in the middle of my list that caught me off guard. Continue reading


When I figure it out…

Sitting here… feeling frustrated with the direction in which my life is going.  I just can’t figure it (life) out.  How many people have figured it out? We can receive advice but who really has all of the answers? I keep telling myself that one day I will figure it out.  Some days I feel the answers to all the questions in my life are close to being answered.  But suddenly I find myself back at square one.  Just because I haven’t figured it all out does not mean that I don’t have anything to give; my vision is just not as clear as it once was.  I feel out of place but I will not veer off of the path I am on.  I just happen to be going through a rough patch, but things will get better.  So I guess that is my message to you (if it applies).  I don’t think any one person will ever completely figure life out, but maybe things will become clear and work out in the end.  Inhale.  Exhale.  Smile : )

Take a sip!

Pour yourself a cup of joy and take a sip.  Sip on it all day like a cup of fresh-brewed coffee, sun-soaked tea, or a tall glass of lemonade.  Take a minute to slip away from today’s drama and focus on what is really important.  Put a smile on your face that makes those around you uncomfortable frowning.  In the midst of it all find a little bit of peace; it does exist ; )
