Oh, yall....this is my attitude today. Several of you have commented on how you could tell my mood had been a little blue lately based on the things in my blog. But every single day reveals something new to me. And yesterday is a prime example of this. Yesterday, I learned some things and had a revelation or two and by golly, I'm ready to move on from sad stuff and be happy and thankful for the countless blessing and opportunities that are swarming around in my atmosphere right now at this very second.

Wow, that was one incredible run-on sentence, right? Sorry. Don't hate.

So for today, I will work and probably dance around in my studio while I do so. If you want to join my dance party, stop on in!

I'm happy to be free and independent. Today, I will be a rockstar.

Also, today, I'm gonna give a great big shout-out to my girls...yeah, you...the crazy ones who always come through in the clutch...Love yall!

Two in a row.

I have been sad lately. Not gonna lie. But Today is Monday, dang it. It is a new day and the beginning of a new week. So ya know what? I'm making a choice. To not be sad, despite some of the things that make me want to be. Ya know why? Because happiness is a choice. If we sit around and wait for happiness to come sweep us up off of our feet we will spend many days miserable and blue.

So today I will be happy. And this week I will be happy. I will find motivation in little things like cups of coffee and the little yellow flowers growing in the pots in front of my shop. And I will make something beautiful.

...and I will choose today to forget as much as possible the things that make me sad.

It has been too long...

Finally got my business cards printed. This is what they look like. I'm quite pleased with them. If you pass me in the street, stop me and ask for one. I'll gladly hook you up.


I'm exhausted.

The past few weeks have really been overwhelming...both physically and emotionally...for me.

Instead of getting all deep with you and stuff...I guess I'll just make a random list of my thoughts, recent events, and observations, yeah?

1. When did gyms become requirements for churches? I don't know how I feel about that.
2. I love my studio. It has turned into my favorite place to be with the help of a whole lot of special people. Thanks, ya'll.
3. I've had busy nights. Between Broadway practice and Bible School, there has been not a second of free time.
4. I'm learning who to believe in and I'm also learning about life's disappointments. You know, like the situations where you do everything you can that is within legal boundaries and all your efforts still come up short or just can't make things better. Those disappointments. They are no fun to learn about. Especially no fun to experience.
5. Our Driveway is COMPLETE!!!, seriously...that might be the highlight of my summer. Not kidding.
6. I'm tired of weddings.
7. I'm painting murals in a children's department at Macedonia Baptist Church. I like doing murals. They calm me down. And give me time to think. Which isn't altogether bad...but isn't altogether good either. If you wanna know why, Please reference #4 now.
8. The definition of love is incredibly ambiguous.
9. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.....shame on me, then.
10. I have really come to appreciate people who love me for who I am and not what I can do for them. I love them. And I am learning to distinguish between those who are genuinely proud of me and for me and those who aren't, ya know? I can tell by the authentic excitement in their voices and their willingness to help me in any way that they can. And THOSE are the people who make me want to be a better person and do a better job everyday that I wake up . So if you are one of those people, thank you.

No Title.

That's all I have to say today. About a lot of things in my life.

...and if I feel that way about a lot of things in my life, then you should draw the conclusion that my life is filled with confusion.

And there you have it folks. Seems like people are always saying that it is wrong to "want" things and that as long as your needs are met, you are fine. But dang it, sometimes we need the things we want. Selfish? Crazy? Maybe a little...but prime example....I really want to go work out but I don't have time. Well, I need to work out as well.

Same with love. I want to love and be loved. And love is something that everyone needs, regardless of what they say.

Very rarely are wants and needs categorized together but today, they shall be. The end.
