No truer than true


With the start of a new week upon us at the stroke of midnight, I thought I would put out some positive energy in the form of positive words.  Nelson Mandela, a powerfully smart man with a courageous spirit, this is my favorite of his words.

While I completed graduate school, I recalled these words all the time.  How many projects did I begin where I saw no way to start, only to get started, then see no way to the end??  But alas, it would always get done.  With each completion it was like the scene from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory when Charlie and his grandpa think straight and realize if they burp to release air, they will get lowered away from the vicious blades awaiting to hack them to pieces.  Yep, grad school was exactly like that.  God, I miss it.

I think if I ever give a speech I would include this saying.  Like if I was accepting an honor or recognition for something.  It comes to mind whenever a project is begun and it carries me along through completion.  It's wildly provoking to examine what you did along the way to get to the done point, ya know?

Either way, this affirms the process I follow to accomplish things.  Which if I'm being completely transparent is simply review what has to be done, design plan to follow through, duck fast when curve balls happen, resume position quickly to outline new plan, and go til it's done.

Til it's done, my peeps.

Until we meet again,
M

A man is not very tired. He is exhausted

I know. This is days after the initial blow of learning that this wonderful human being's life ended. What in the world. Talk about a cherished existence. The man my parents still rave about because of his stand up comedy, the man who forever changed the way I say "Hellloooooo" in an older British woman's voice, this great giant. How sad. I feel for the fact that Robin hit a level from which he could not rise. Depression, anxiety, stress are awful beasts.

I do not believe in the mentality, that someone who takes their life is selfish. Sure, it's not the kindest thing to leave behind for loved ones to cope with, but if something has it's grasp on a person, well, choices are made. It is devastating that there is still so much stigma for diseases like depression and anxiety. What?! Get the hell out of here with that mess. I would not wish it upon the biggest naysayer even to prove a point. So, to that, I say screw the assholes saying derogatory …

My dear, If at first you don't succeed, throw on another accessory & try, try again

Off to try, try again!

Anything is possible with sunshine and a little pink -Lilly Pulitzer

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
