Understanding the life of a Butterfly………

In life, opinion, random thought on January 30, 2011 at 8:21 pm

Butterflies are beautiful creatures.  Besides their beauty, they go through 4 stages in their life called metamorphosis.  Metamorphosis means a drastic change  in form: a complete change in appearance.  Every change serves has a purpose.  Our lives can be compared to the life of a butterfly. Through every stage of our life, we experience new things, learn from them, gather knowledge and grow into the person that we ultimately want to be. So whatever stage you are in your life, change is constant and will always be a beautiful thing.

Laughter, laughter, laughter. Did I say Laughter?

In musings, opinion, random thought on January 9, 2011 at 12:30 pm

I have had an opportunity to read  ” Laughter For A Woman’s Soul – Revive Your Spirit with Women of Faith ” by New Life Clinics.  This is a wonderful book and I wanted to share an excerpt from Barbara Johnson:

Human beings thrive on laughter. Since most of us can’t afford vacations in Hawaii, we have to learn to make our own fun!  Humor is the chocolate chips in the ice cream of life.  Since it doesn’t come to your door looking for you, you have to go out and get it yourself.

Resolutions: The “It” List

In life, opinion, random thought on January 1, 2011 at 10:26 am

Here we go again, it is time for the most famous list of  the year:  The New Years Resolutions.   It is the most talked about list that starts off with optimum momentum and then slowly fades away.   In the process of promising what you are going to do, we often forget to insert the phrase, Simply Doing Me.   So for 2011, no more lists, simply just  do you!

nOtE tO SelF: The meaning of time

In life, musings, opinion, random thought on October 20, 2010 at 4:15 pm

 

On my way to work today, I saw a sign that said ” Time has a way of showing us what really matters.”  That statement is so true when you think about it.  As young adults, we are so anxious to get out into the world. We tend to become caught up with things and people that only matter at the moment. Trying to be in the in crowd and be like the Jones’.

We only focused on what was just two feet ahead of us instead of looking further down the path.

As time passes, those things and people that we wrapped our ideals around don’t matter to us today. It is truly a testament of where you are today-knowing that you have grown as a person.  Having friends and family- those who genuinely care about you and your well-being are still around. These are the moments that truly matter.

Note to Self: Life is Not alWays goIng to be Cake and Ice Cream………

In life, musings, opinion, random thought on October 3, 2010 at 8:29 pm

Even though life is purely decadent,  is not always going to be cake and ice cream.  There are  going to be moments in which you will  face challenges.  Some of those moments are going to be short-lived while others will seem to push you to the breaking  point. It may be during those moments that you find out who you truly are and acquire the serenity you were always looking for. You are always going to be faced with life’s challenges large and small, but it’s what you do with the extra  ingredients that matters.

Sometimes you have to stop and ask yourself: Why is it that I can’t see the forest for the trees?  Is it that there are just two many trees or is it just that one huge oak blocking your entire view?  Nine times out of ten, it’s that one huge oak.

This year has truly been a year of self discovery with a hint of asking myself  “what?”  I can really say that I am having so much fun. I have made a list of things to do and I am happy to report, I have scratched through quite a few. The paper is beginning to look like graffiti. I guess it is my bucket  list. It is truly wonderful to be capable of enjoying things to the fullest and I am looking forward to the end of the year where I can look at someone, pause and say ” I have done that!”  It is my sincere hope that you can make a bucket list of things to do that is beginning to look like graffiti. Laugh often, smile,love with all your heart and forgive always.  See ya soon.  Full Figure Monologues……………………………….
