B-L-E-S-S-E-D---Do you know what that means???

While doing what the kids do, "tweeting", I came across the always charismatic, the always passionate, the always advice giving Rev Run. His tweets are igniting, insightful and quite frankly a breath of fresh air. Today's words were especially wonderful: "Count your blessings..You'll feel better..Seriously count them right now..It'll make you feel better." Now, these words are not too detailed, not hard to grasp and oddly calming. I did exactly as the Rev told me to do:

La Familia. As a whole they are crazy, wild, loving. They fight, bicker and but defend one another not in our bloodline. There is so much character in each of my family members (blood family or my Roberts family) it is infectious. I'm not right down the road anymore but this is probably why I absolutely appreciate and value them even more than I did when I was.

My loving and supportive Hunter Bear. He is truly a good soul and tries so hard at everything he does. He takes care of me and supports my every hope, even when I make it hard for him to do so :) (I-N-D-E-P-E-D-E-N-T, do you know what meanssssss??? Love that song!) He is funny and he doesn't take the same things I take seriously, so serious. He is my better half, indefinitely! Well, when I'm not wearing a fab flower brooch on that side, that is.

My friends. Near and dear a few stand. A time in my life prior to now it was definitely a mission to have quantity versus quality and boy did I grow up on that lesson! That's not to say the friendships I had at one time were not special or significant but now I have a much smaller inner circle and the way I value those relationships is like no other. I truly am thankful for my handful they say you can count in a lifetime.

My beautiful, gorgeous, smart, independent dogters. Without these crazy creatures of fur our life would be so....boring. Uneventful. Fur less. Seriously, we wouldn't have an ounce of fur in our coffee, on the lid of our leftovers for lunch at work, in my purse. It's a running joke that when I pack Hunter's lunch and put a cutesy note on the top, there is ALWAYS a piece of dog fur trapped under the tape I use to stick it on. My girls are exactly that: my girls. I cuddle with them daily, have bonds with each of their personalities and cannot imagine my life without their furry tails. My princess furry face (Pepper Ann) and princess furry tail (Talulah Roni) you forever hold momma's heart.

I am thankful for my job. A job with a company that is hiring when so many others are firing. A job that has benefits and holiday gift days and the growth potential within our company which is so high! The environment is such a creative one too. So many individuals with talents far beyond just working their lives away. Sure everyone does that too, but they live and breathe for something else as well. I appreciate this opportunity more than I realize sometimes.

The writing opportunities I am blessed to call mine are so great. I have this dream and I am living it! Who does that?? So many doors are waiting to be opened and so many moments are waiting to be had. I aim to keep working hard and hope to embrace all the wonderful things dreams can do for a person.

A couple extras not to be taken for even an ounce of granted:
---hot showers-there is never a bad time for one and the only thing that tops this blessing? A toasty warm towel to wrap up in when done!

---Blankets-our place has blankets galore. Nothing beats cuddling up with a nice fleece or the coziness under a down comforter.

---Having a home, not a house. We have love and struggle and food and a place that we retreat to and it's such a thrill to go out and about he world then say "I just can't wait to get home!"

---Let's be honest, I couldn't write about my blessings without at least a shout out to what keeps my head balanced (literally-without earrings I'd walk funny! The bigger the better :) ), my fingers and wrists brighter and my wallet open: accessories and shoes. My God the shoes, man!! I adore my collections and I feel very blessed this is something I can enjoy.

---Criminal Minds. If only the BAU was hiring, I would be forwarding my resume to Quantico yesterday! That show is really fun (despite the never ending race to stop and capture both psycho and sociopaths--depending on their level of unorganized or organized crimes--with the clock of life running low). The team deserves every bit of high viewership!

Whatever a person feels blessed for, embrace and be thankful. Rev Run, you are more than right.



Oh, and this gent. His name is Jasper Rockerfeller Horsegoat the 3rd and my mom got him as a gift and I will be making him one of my blessings come Christmas time when I see her. Isn't he glorious???

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Blogtober Day 26, Who would play you in a movie...

Ohhh good one, Blogtober.

Someone once told me I reminded them of Drew Barrymore. They didn't say if it was for look or personality, so I'm not sure where they drew the conclusion from. See what I did there?

I threw this out to one of my very best and oldest friends Andrea. Talking it out, we agreed that Drew and I do share some similar qualities, both in personality and in dressing and accessorizing. Andrea reasoned that Drew is quirky and a little less traditional, much like me. I reasoned we have the same headbands:

I also recalled that when I was a little girl, everyone thought I looked like a young Drew Barrymore. Both my parents have said people would come up to them all the time and remark on my resemblance to her in that movie Firestarter:

Whatever it is, I would absolutely be pleased if Drew played me in a movie.

Now, if Penelope Garcia was a real person and not a character on a TV show (Criminal Minds), she would undoubtedly play me in a movie:

Irrational Rationing...

The past year of my life has been spent blogging; two of my four classes necessary for graduation required them and at my internship I blogged. Why not give the world my opinion on any subject I choose? It's free and it's mine to share, right? Absolutely!

So, to start, what do I want my tone to be? Tone is a very important factor, you know. It can make or break a piece. People want to identify a tone or purpose, which they often misconstrue as meaning the same thing. Oh, people-my favorite breed:)

So let's see. There's:
Informative? Will I provide people with knowledge about various subjects and try to teach? Eh.

How about super upbeat and positive? Like, I'll provide people with a reason to live to log on to read the next uplifting piece of blog. Eh.

How about super dreary? Dreary works. Most people would rather be perfectly miserable than divinely happy. Eh. Decisions.

Hmm, maybe all my posts will be so contemplative. Hey! That's not a bad racket. Contemplative in…
