I’ve been stuck. This often happens shortly after I have a magnificent idea, or a new project I want to start. I run into “blockers.” If it’s a new book I’m planning to write (it is) I get to a point in my thinking about the plot or characters, and something doesn’t work, and I don’t … More Work. Every. Day.
I was in a bit of a state this morning. All weekend I was in a funk, if you will, and this morning I was in an effing state. To be fair…I listened to a lot of Nas this weekend which left me feeling a tad aggressive. We had one of those weekends. The kind where we didn’t have the … More If. I. Ruled. The. World.
Join me, if you will, for a trip down memory lane. Please? When my husband and I met I had a fabulous job as a fundraiser for an organization I loved. I worked, and worked, and worked some more. My accounts were sacred and I did everything humanly possible to make their dealings with me … More Charmed. I’m. Sure.
About a week ago I received an email from a former colleague, from her personal email account, asking about my new job. We emailed back and forth for a bit and she finally told me she’d been asked to contact me to see if I’d talk. Someone high-up was interested in speaking with me about … More Truth. Be. Told.
What? You don’t remember me telling you very specifically that we were taking a break? No? Well…damn. So you know when someone tells you something vague in an effort to get attention? Or in hopes that you’ll ask more and more questions of them? Well here’s the deal. The past couple months have been full … More We. Were. On. A. Break.
To say that remarkable things have fallen into place this week would be a remarkable understatement. The moment I was able to admit that things just weren’t right or okay, I was able to take the necessary steps, and start to move on. Start to live again. Get back to feeling like me. I’ve taken … More It’s. Go. Time.
This post is to be read with THIS playing in the background. It will make it so much better…I promise. I could shop every day of my life and never tire of it. I don’t even need to spend money (although I’m a big fan of doing so) I just really love to be shopping. … More Louis. Vuitton. Handbags. Don’t. Buy. Themselves.
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.
Yesterday I was home sick and when I woke up this morning I felt less than stellar. Less than awake, less than well, less than enthusiastic about lifting my tired bones from the comforts of my bed. So I did what any self-respecting, overly tired, and possibly still-sick girl would do…I dressed to the nines. … More Damn. Girl.
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.
