I don’t typically take or make personal calls at work. Recently, due to an increase in staff, I was moved from an office with a door back to a cube. This is where you picture me like Dylan McKay, after he’d learned of his wife’s untimely death, in the middle of the rainy street on … More Clutch. Move.
You should know that anytime I’m able to quote Ladies Love Cool James, I will absolutely do just that. I’ve long known, if not consciously certainly subconsciously, that when I work hard and do my best good things come my way. When I complain, lament, do things half a-sed, and pout like a child, however, … More Doin’. It. And. Doin’. It. And. Doin’. It. Well.
Each year on Christmas Eve we attend the 9pm candlelit service at our church. Our church has the most amazing music. In fact, often times if I close my eyes, it’s as if I’m at the symphony instead of in church. Add candles, Handel’s Messiah, and other Christmas carols? And you have pure Christmas magic. … More Village. Of. Visionaries.
Yesterday, my friends? I hit the wall. I. Hit. The. Wall. Let me break it down for you… I had a fabulous weekend. Fabulous. One of those weekends you don’t want to end. One of those weekends that makes you grateful you’re with your partner. My husband and I? We really like each other. Yes, … More Game. On.
Eight or nine years ago I went to D.C. with my parents and brother over Easter weekend. I remember being shocked by the now abundant presence of homeless people in every part of the city that I hadn’t seen the last time I’d been there for business. On Easter morning, we walked an eerily empty … More A. Single. Word. Of. Blessing.
I’m a girl who likes to proclaim things. Announce things. Make big and ambitious plans and shout them from the rooftops. 3rd Grade – “I’m going to be a lawyer!” I’m a communicator. I process things through talking. A LOT of sh-t swirls through my head, so unless I say things out loud, they don’t … More Proclamations.
The other day my husband and I went to the gym. I have finally reached a place in which I can exercise every day and not suffer enormous amounts of pain the next morning. It’s pure bliss! So we went to the gym, lifted weights, I did my chiropractor-ordered exercises for my back, and when … More That. Pesky. Rule.
So…I sometimes have a problem with showing up. They say “showing up is half the battle” but really…I’m not interested in battles…I’m interested in feeling fulfilled and happy and passionate about the things I’m doing. Lately, if I don’t feel those things, I’d rather just skip it. I’ve been struggling professionally. I’m not where I … More Showing. Up.
It was one of those moments of epic failure. I was hurrying to finish-up my hair and get out of the house when my littlest little girl came out of her room with a defeated look on her face and a plastic baggy with her tooth in her hand. “She didn’t come” she said dejectedly. “The … More The. Tooth. Fairy. Can’t. Fly. In. The. Rain.
While it’s been a long week, and today has been a particularly challenging day, in retrospect it’s been wickedly wonderful. All of it. So rather than talk about the rough patches (we’ll save that for tomorrow shall we?) I’m going to focus on the good stuff. Nothing screams adulthood like this does…alleluia I have finally reached … More A. Wickedly. Wonderful. Week.
