Soon…I promise!

G’day Everyone!

Well I don’t know about you, but August nearly kicked my tail. It was full of highs (Big New Adventures!!!) and lows (omgosh my daughter’s volleyball schedule is about to kill me!!) and everything in between. The month of September is shaping up to be busy as well, but I’m ready for it.

So, I need to take care of some housekeeping around here and explain a few things. I promise to tell you about my BIG ADVENTURE as soon as I get the green light. I will tell you that it involved a trip to New York City and it might also possibly involve a daytime talk show. I’M DYING TO TELL YOU ALL ABOUT IT. And I promise I will within the next couple of weeks AS SOON AS THEY TELL ME I CAN.  WHICH I HOPE WILL BE SOON BECAUSE GAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!! 🙂

As I was saying, as a result of this new thing, I am focusing on making my life better in small ways and big ways and I want to share with you guys everything I’m learning because I know I’m not a special snowflake and anything I’m feeling, a lot of you are probably feeling as well. So in the coming days, I’d like to focus on real world applications that we can make to our lives that will make us feel better – about ourselves and our situations. This blog is going to be primarily about putting ourselves at the top of the list – for some of us that might mean putting ourselves ON the list to start.

As a result of…the thing I can’t talk about yet…I have been in contact with a therapist who specializes in self-esteem. I haven’t asked her permission to share her name here, but let me tell you she is fantastic, and I’m learning a lot. I already have so many blog posts swirling around in my brain about this – I love that feeling and it’s one I haven’t had in a long time.

I want to leave you with a question – I want you to really think about this over the weekend and imagine the answer in your head. Imagine this as if there were no obstacles whatsoever. I heard this question asked in a Tedx Talk that I watched a couple of days ago and it stuck with me (I’ll post the video in my next post).

If you could be the woman of your dreams, who would you be?

Think about it and let me know in the comments if you have an idea. If you don’t have any idea, that’s okay – just spend some time thinking about it.

Later Sweets!

  1. Ohhhhhh. I was wondering! A Talk show? Will you be a part of that?? Ha! I know you can’t answer, but I really wanted to ask.

    I’ll think about your question. But do you remember a few years ago (like more than four, maybe,) that Miz asked “what would you do if you knew you would not fail?” And that is when I decided to take my quilting seriously, and I ordered a special table to put my sewing machine in.

  2. Honestly, I think I am the woman of my dreams. I would not want to be anyone else but me. I have lived my life, made my own mistakes, corrected them and grown from them. I wouldn’t want to be anyone but me. That said, I do have a few heroes / woman crushes. I have always liked Jennifer Garner. I really admire Ruth (from the Bible) and Golda Meir.

  3. Your second paragraph cracked me up!

    Oh, gosh… to answer your question, the first woman that came to mind was Sandra Bullock. Although I’ve never met her, to me she comes across during interviews, etc., as a genuine person, self-reliant, warm, funny, not afraid to get her hands dirty and do her own work (I read she tiled her own floor enjoys home-improvement projects – cool!). And she stays fit! As I typed all this, I think I do embody most of the reasons why I like her — except for the fit part. (Am I having an ah-hah moment?)

    “…for some of us that might mean putting ourselves ON the list to start.” – Amen!
