Singing and Roaring!

So I found myself walking the dogs late this afternoon singing this... Loudly.

Outside of obvious reason why this would be scary/hilarious on so many different levels it caught me off guard because truth be told that last couple of days has just stunk.

I have been moody.

I have been grouchy.

I have been unmotivated.

I have been generally feeling pretty darn hopeless.

I have been bursting into tears at the drop of a hat.

Not things anyone enjoys!

Like you, when faced with the ugly face of unexplained crisis I do the same thing, plast a smile on my face a soldier on! Truly life hasn't been that bad, great supportive friends, great family, great job, new opportunities.

I have just been crotchety.

You have an emotion that sticks in the "craw' more than others I am sure, mine happens to be frustration. Nothing frustrates me more than frustration! When that knot in my knickers is going to take some time to loosen, like a wrinkle that the hottest iron just won't get out, I don't deal very well. Of course at this time it always feels like everyone is also rubbing your face in it, making money hand over fist, losing weight by blinking, achieving that promotion because "gosh darn" they just deserve it.


So what had me singing about a beautiful morning late this afternoon. Well, along with a sense of "ha" which allows me to see myself for the imbecile I can be, It was indeed a beautiful morning! Eric Frans from the Kelowna Gospel Mission joined me on The Breakfast Club (Dan's on holiday's) and we raised almost 2 grand for KGM in just under 2 hours.

That leaves you feeling pretty good.

Plus we did it while having fun and sharing in laughter. (Truly it takes a Texan to teach you and the rest of Kelowna how to pluralize y'all.) Well, y'all I also came across this quote:

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying,I will try again tomorrow. (Mary Anne Radmacher)

My running has been a tough go, my weight loss is stubborn, and I still haven't done my taxes..

I will try again tomorrow and will keep trying till I roar.

Susan, you're awesome. Don't be hard on yourself! There *is* a light at the end of the tunnel, and you're going to have such a blast getting there (and it's not an on-coming train!!)

I also am having various obstacles, including some you talked about. (I sure do wish that blinking was enough to cause weight loss! heehee)

Alas, we are in the world we are in, with ourselves and our surroundings whether we like it or not.

Keep doing what you're doing. Focus on the positive. Manifest your desires. Change the things you can. And. Be. Here. Now.

Sending you big hugs and encouraging butterflies and a great big Thank You!

You're a bright spot and an inspiration to me!
