I have written and re-written about 3 blogs this morning and I don’t like any of the topics. I began by talking about TBD – too busy disorder because I have been hearing that a lot from one of my friends and it is very annoying. Truly, we are all busy. I either hear too busy or how their world is ending due to some type of unforeseen circumstance. Here’s the thing, people are losing their homes, cars and jobs. If it’s not one of those I can assure that your world is not coming to an end. It sounds alittle harsh but we run through life so focused on ourselves or what isn’t going right for us that we forget about the big bad world out there. The people that really need our help, the animals that really need our help. There’s cancer and sickness, home foreclosures, car repossession and job loss. Seriously, it’s crazy out there. I’ve even had to slap myself a few times when I feel like complaining and stop it. Things are tough sure, I worry about paying the bills all the time, have to come up with X amount of dollars in the next 4 days to pay rent but shoot, life is good and I’m not going hungry. Although, I really like ramen and it’s quite fulfilling – just add a slice of cheese and some garlic pepper and you go “gourmet”.
So then off to topic 2 that was deleted too. Mindy, amazing German shepherd rescue dog found a new home. I actually couldn’t be more thrilled. I think that friends and family alike were worried that I would do something dramatic at the thought of that but I was really really happy to find out that that crazy puppy who was abandoned in Cali and brought Az just found a loving home. There are 4 more shepherds coming to this rescue this week and now I get to play with another one and show them love until they get a good home too. Makes it all seem worth it….although I would prefer to have my German Shepherd back it seems like a piece of her lives in all of these dogs – Mindy was the same little princess as Modena and it warmed my soul.
Off to topic 3. My cup is not running over right now. So, oh universe that I love so much I am putting it out there that I need some big projects. I am going to manifest big projects, win the ones that I bid on last week and win the proposal that I just wrote for a government project. Oh yes, I am submitting on this amazing project that would be awesome to have, it would mean – dare I say the scary word that artist’s shy away from so much? Stability. Oh yes, I said the word. that gets submitted this Friday and I’ll know by Oct if I am the winner – which of course NThreeQ Media ultimate graphic design firm in Arizona will win it.
Topic 4. I have an old childhood friend find me through this blog and on facebook and we recently reconnected. That is always crazy to me. I hated school, really hated highschool – so much that I graduated early and ran off to Arizona to go to college where I then fell in love with school and now have a master’s degree. Funny how the universe knows better than you. I stopped trying to force things ages ago and just go with the flow now, find the road or new road or new track or lets just cut through and go over the mountain for fun? At some point in our messaging he told me I was an inspiration to him. Isn’t that funny? I would have never thought that I would be inspiration to anyone and here we are – Angelina. Inspiration. I think that’s kind of awesome.
So I sit here with no topic that I can decide on to talk about and am in a very strange but good mood for a Tuesday. I have another new hair color – bright red, and my landscapers still have planted my grass outside. My A/C went out on my rental house but my renters were totally amazing and understanding – it’s fixed again. We are about to move in to October and for the first time in years I am contemplating a Halloween costume and am excited about it – I blame my new BFF Jen for that one.
To sum everything up: we are given a life but it is up to us to live it. We live through the negative because we become better because of it. Stop whining. If we dwell we will never be happy, if we settle we will never find our destiny. If this were your last day on earth would you have done everything that you wanted to do? If not, do it. Smile at a stranger, say good morning to everyone you see, hug your kids/family/friends/clients. Look to the sky and say what a great day.
