you will be automatically redirected....

Naturally, I'm trying a new thing.  I can't seem to stop myself.  I'm being an entrepreneur the cheapo way and I love it!  Buying and selling on Amazon is a new venture for me.  Every time I enter a new item I get the message "you will be automatically redirected to..." and yesterday I thought it said "you will be automatically rejected..." LOL!  Ya know, I get down on myself for constantly trying new things and never quite reaching 100% success.  I guess I think I can always do better.  Doc Popcorn was a major blow to my self esteem and I struggle with that.  It's a battle every day and a never ending nightmare (I know there's an ending I just wish it would come faster).   I've tried doing other things too and enjoyed them but I wanted more.  Sometimes I feel stupid for continually trying and think "Just do the laundry, pick up the dog poop, clean the pool, buy the groceries, make dinner, drop off the kids, pick up the kids, get the mail, take out the trash, pick up the clutter, buy school supplies, buy your kid a new cup for football, paint your nails, go to book club and just be happy with that"..but I'm not.  I want to do something that makes me happy and makes me money.  So, I might be automatically rejected but I'm gonna keep trying and fighting...then, I saw this quote on facebook this morning (yes, it's 4am):

Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.- Theodore Roosevelt

and I thought...yea...I know how it feels to be checkered by failure but I know how it feels to enjoy life too, and for me I'm doing what I need to do.

You Know What I Like?

I like the pitter patter of my dogs feet on my wood floors.  I like nail polish.  I like it when someone else changes the toilet paper.  I like wearing perfume.  I like coach purses.  I like sitting and looking at my flowers on the patio.  I like finding a good deal.  I like feeling like I've accomplished something.  I like listening to my kids laugh.  I like watching movies at home.  I like Starbucks.  I like staying in my jammies all day.  I like peace and quiet.  I like Disney World.  I like martinis.  I like the summer.  I like books.  I like old things.  I like feeling like I have a purpose in life.  I like sticking my feet in the pool.  I like kissing my dog on the lips.  I like the Broncos.  I like movie theater popcorn.  I like happy endings.

daily miracles?

Miracles happen every day, be ready and willing.  I read this on facebook this morning by Dr. Wayne Dyer...I'm wondering if he really lives by all of the wisdom he imparts on the world?  I love his sayings and his thought process I just seem to lose the feeling 5 minutes after I read it.  I could use a miracle today that's for sure (who couldn't?)...my journey continues with the dilemma I've been dealing with since last Fall.  A miracle would come in handy.  Taking deep breaths and trying to keep a positive outlook but as you all know, it's easier said than done.  The anger and the fear seem to well up in me constantly so I try to keep myself busy while I fight the good fight, I'm not giving up.   That's all...just wondering if Wayne Dyer leads the perfect life of no fear and miracles occurring constantly in his life or if he's human like the rest of us?

press play, don't press pause

Again, lyrics I tuned into while driving my kids all over gods green earth.  Good advice though.  Sometimes you have to let go of stuff and move on even though it's difficult.  Things that are out of our control can keep us pressing the pause button on life in hopes that we can somehow fix it or change it...not gonna happen.  Sure, make an effort to change something you don't like or don't agree with but don't get stuck!  If that person, or that mistake, is causing you to waste precious time and energy then let it go.  Picture a balloon that you are holding in your hand, see the person or the problem in the balloon and watch it float away as you let go of it...then start walking forward.  It may not seem like it, but it's easier to press play than it is to get stuck on pause.
