if i am to learn anything

Life has been difficult. Mostly stressful but I stand to keep my head up and do what makes me happy. I've been trying SO hard to not let anything get me down and to keep moving ahead. I have no excuse for not posting the last few days and I'm not giving up on this blog just yet...well, hopefully never.

Today, I'm grateful for the motivation I have to get back to Jazzercise. I'm driven by this frustration that I have and I KNOW that when I finish Jazzercise, I feel so much better. I've worked out a lot of that by sweating it out and shakin' mah booty. Also, it frees me from sitting on the couch and feeling miserable because I'm not, nor did I do nothing. I feel accomplished, I did my part and I'm a better person because of it. Those small strides are going to push me to be even better than I am now with a better outlook on life and a better belief in myself because I did it...not anyone else. I did it. For myself.

What gets you motivated and what do you do when you're just not feelin' it? I honestly believe you can't go wrong with a good, long workout.

Happy Wednesday! I'm getting there with mine...in just a short 3 hours I will be on my way to Jazzercise and will already feeling much better.

there is nothing greater

It's all about the small things to me. Whether I notice them or not, as a whole, they amount to something greater than everything else and we take all of these small things for granted.

This morning I woke up to little star post-its all over the apartment today from my boyfriend. We've been having some turbulence in the last week, "some" is maybe an understatement but I'm trying here. However, we are remaining cordial to each other and walking through this together, whatever it may be. Maybe not as close as we once were but still together.

The small notes said things like, "DING! You just checked in at "The Bathroom"" and "You look beautiful this morning!" and so on. Some even mentioned what outfit I may wear and that I should wear my hair up...dare I say, there were even a couple post-its in the shower! Nothing naughty! Dirty you!! But, they made me smile and really set me up for a wonderful day. How can anything go wrong after such a flattering morning :) I feel good today, even though...tomorrow is the BIG, round, 3-0.

Happy Thursday!

a hopeful future

{photo: Eddie, being Eddie in his bath. IE: so freakin' cute.}

My 30th...yes, that's right, my 30th birthday is on Friday and I can honestly say I am not scared or worried. I know that good things are coming my way and if I have to plow through the worst of times this long to get there, I am not giving up. I won't go into my woes of not being married, even engaged...or not even owning a house yet because it's not my time. I'll get there and I'll be happy still, even more so.

I hope your holiday weekend was a good one. I got to see some amazing fireworks and am grateful for making the efforts to get out to see them. As well as hanging out with some really great friends.

friday blanks

1. The best news I ever received was...I honestly can't answer this question, I can't think of anything. That's sorta sad.

2. Something I'm looking forward to is the weekend and my future. I can't wait, but can sometimes, to see what's going to happen to me.

3. Something I would never do is skydiving. I am definitely not a thrill seeker.

4. If I could choose someone to be my life coach (famous or not, living or dead), I'd choose...this is going to make you laugh but at the moment it'd be Bethenny Frankel. I love brutal open honest personality and she's a go-getter. Get it done or move on from it!

5. If I had to put a label on my style it would be casual. I like to dress up here and there, I love heels but don't like wearing them but I don't think I'm sloppy either. Just casual. Tennies, jeans and a tee or sweatshirt and I'm happy.

6. One should always be conscious of their surroundings and not take things for granted.

7. I want to go on vacation, period.
