EAT THE BROWNIES!

WHY!?!

This is another questioning blog today.  Why, Why, Why must people only look on the dark, ugly, nasty and gloomy side of life?  They wake up mad, go through the day spewing hate and bad breath (I just imagine) and then go to bed mad.

Why!?

Circumstance?  Past?  Baggage?  Constipation?  Upset stomach?

If you gave them a plate of chocolate chip cookies and told them have a happy day…they would think or even say, “I prefer brownies.”  Ok, if you gave them a plate of the best BROWNIES -in-the-world with a smiley face balloon and a chilly glass of milk… they would say, “I’m trying to watch what I eat.”   Really!?!  IT IS BROWNIES!  (the best ones in the world even)

I’m pretty sure you get my point.

WHY!?!

Is this day so bad that you have to TRY (cuz it ain’t happening to this gal) and make others have a bad day too?  Would that actually make you “happy?”  OR would that somehow make your life, in some sick weird way, more meaningful?

NO.  I’m telling you right now, that is a NO.  Negative. Never, absolutely not, uh-uh and not at all.

Yes, I’m answering my own questions here.  It’s ok.  I do that sometimes.

It is most emphatically and positively truth that ATTITUDES ARE CONTAGIOUS.  Is yours worth catching?  When people look at me, I want them to WANT what I got!  I’m not hiding my light under a bushel–NO!  I’m gonna let it shine!  I am not extinguishing the fire of JOY the Almighty God has given me to share.  No way!  I’m gonna pass it out like goody bags at a birthday party!  Here’s one for you and you and you…

FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE YOURSELF from the past baggage or circumstance that is darkening your days. Have a HAPPY!  Here, take a smile.  Do you need a hug?  Let go of whatever is making you look for the opposite of happy.  Take some Milk of Magnesia!  Whatever you gotta do!!!  But colon cleanse that nasty attitude OUT before you end up living your life alone or worse…with another stopped up negative nilly who can only compound the unhappiness in your life.  (Misery loves company? Eeeek!)

Do whatever you gotta do!!! Did I say that already?  Repetition means IT’S IMPORTANT!

Don’t be one of those people that can’t find happy anywhere…

DIG DEEP! Trudge through it.  Dust it off, wipe it away… until you find that treasure called HAPPINESS and …

JUST BE HAPPY.

(and eat the dadgum brownies!!!)

It’s NOT Friday!?!

It’s the middle of the week and it’s felt like a Friday all day.  I certainly love every day of the week (I’m an equal opportunity kinda gal), but Friday just always seems a little FREE-ER …I know you know the feeling.  I’m really unsure why today felt like Friday, but here’s my bullet form theories…

  • I started teaching my FAVORITE unit in Art I today: ANIMATION! I love Walt DISNEY AND Mickey and they are all up in that lesson plan. 
  • My sculpture class is doing plaster casting of their hands and it’s a super fun experience to have with them. I love my job!
  • The Spaghetti dinner and 5K events that took a lot of time and energy to put together was completed last weekend.  YAY!
  • My girl child got an EXCELLENT report card today, found out she had a .439 batting average for her softball season this year and I’m just so proud of that kid!
  • I laughed out loud A LOT today. I always have fun at work because I love my job (did I say that already) and who I work with, but today just seemed more joy-filled for whatever reason.  Everyone was a comedian today!  Love that!
  • We are having company this weekend which always makes me get a little excited no matter who it is. I really like being a host. 
  • The sermon tonight at our Wednesday night meeting was all about how GOD loves us. I knew this, of course, but the way the preacher presented it really gave me a stronger outlook on the fact. GOD MADE THIS EARTH ESPECIALLY FOR US… He made us on purpose AND sacrificed His Son for us.  What more confirmation do we need!?!

Ok, there ya go.  I’m sure there are more reasons I could give for the feeling of “Friday” freedom I had all day today, but maybe I’ll save them for another blog. 

I hope for you a great “Friday” freedom kind of day… Even when it’s not Friday!

FREE to be Me

Thank God!  I don’t have to look back and regret. He has won the battle already!  Listen to the song…

You are trying to send a message aren’t you?

Today’s title is a comment I received from a friend earlier on Facebook.

I had posted a picture of my fresh new hair color yesterday and my face had NO-MAKE UP on it!  *GASP!*  Then, my post this morning was “I’m me and that is all.”  I really didn’t mean for those two things to go together, but they did anyway.

My “I’m me…” post was born from my mood this morning.  I really wasn’t thinking I was sending some message to every one.

A lot of times I wake up with crazy things running through my head.  The last few days have been reflection days.  I’ve just been on this emotional trip fueled by woman hormones (gag) and the fact that summer is coming to an end.  I do this every year, really.  Summer is marching out and the first day of work is quickly headed my way.  I’m not saying that saddens me.  I LOVE MY JOB and I cannot wait to be back with my coworkers (most of which are dear friends) and my students whom I most always adore.  It’s just this transitional period that gets me into this “reflection” state.  I start thinking about things I’ve gotten accomplished this summer and all the things that will be on my TO DO lists in the near future.  I was thinking this morning, I’M ME and that is all.  I can only do so much.  You can only get so much done and accomplish a certain amount of things within a certain amount of time.  I don’t want to worry myself with regret of what I haven’t done or with any kind of doom or gloom of what is to come.  I’M ME AND THAT IS ALL.  I will give my all and that is the end of it.

So, there.  No HUGE message, or was it?

As for the NO MAKE-UP me…I wasn’t really trying to send a message, but after this comment from my friend and thinking about my post above, I realized,

I’M ALWAYS TRYING TO SEND A MESSAGE!  (sometimes it’s easy to get…other times, it’s not–YA GET IT? haha!)

So, here is the next part:

The no make-up message is not one of a make-up industry boycott or anything like that.  Most of my summers are NO MAKE-UP DAYS!  I love the freedom of not having to put on any make-up.  In the summer, I don’t worry about being on a schedule; although, I do still like to get up quite early, eat the same thing for breakfast each day and get a walk in before 8 a.m.  So, NO MAKE-UP is just a message of freedom.  Not that make-up is a restriction to me.  Make-up just helps ACCENT my beauty, I believe.  I know that sometimes I may accent a little too much, but most of the time, I try to just use it as a supportive mechanism.  HAHA!  This message isn’t as complex as the first one, I suppose, but still a message.  Make-up or not—I’M ME AND THAT IS ALL!

So here is the NO MAKE-UP ME:

I was doing a little creeping on FB earlier and found the image below on this cool crazy FIRED UP guy’s page.  This guy’s name is Aric Bostick as you can see on the image.  If you ever need a boost for your day, this dude always has some kind of awesome saying, picture or comment.  The image below which he posted TODAY, I’ve decided is THE  MESSAGE I’m trying to send not just to everyone, but mostly to me:

 

FREE

 

…AND THAT IS ALL.
