WHAT A DAY...

I mean.... LLLAAWWWWWWDDDDDDDDD WHAT A DAY...

Started off with sitting in traffic for almost an hour, which for many, can be extremely trying on your nerves.... Then I get to work in such anticipation of my interview with MAIDEN JANE aka JANE ! I couldn't wait to see it actually posted on her blog (which you can find on the right side of my screen - scroll down)... I KNEW it was posting this morning, but the emotional excitement just kept building... ya'll know, like a kid - waiting for Santa ? Yeah, you get the jest...

So I get into work and immediately log on to Facebook and start reading the article... OMG - I am sitting at work BAWLING... literally! I didn't expect the kind words from Jane prior to "my interview" portion.... people don't always express themselves or how they feel about others, and it made my day... "hearing it"... just was what I needed at that exact moment.... I am "needy"... I know, I must get over this, but I am .. I must be reassured... so she "filled" my neediness.... Be sure to tell folks how you feel if it is on your mind... this ain't no dress rehearsal folks....

THEN, I see that another dear friend, Pat @ My Life Under the Bus (also to the right of the blog) also featured my shoppe today... well, folks... the tears just kept coming..... (I had NO idea she had this up her sleeve)...I mean - people at work didn't know what to think.... I am just very emotional lately period... (for personal reasons) and this was just ... well, HELL - THE BEST FREAKIN DAY EVER!

I big shout out to both my friends who took time out of their life to speak of me... to showcase me to their friends, family, and followers... THAT, my folks, is a TRUE FRIEND (both of whom I have NEVER met but through the internet, yet I know I will be friends with until the day I die)...... So thank you both .... I owe you one!

So work was busy.... as all haaaaiiillll....but that is good because the day goes by faster.... then I come home... to more emotion... a card in the mail from someone very important to me... my GREAT "Aunt Pam" (whom folks - you will also find to the right bottom of my blog).... She knows my personal issues at this time and took the time out of her busy life to send a card and WRITE in it ! Folks, we need to do more of this... sometimes email, well it is so impersonal! Pick up the phone and call or WRITE.... it will make someones day - you can hold me to it...

Okay, so back to the card.... THIS IS MY INSPIRATION TO YOU TODAY... THE INSPIRATION SHE GAVE ME... I AM SHARING WITH YOU...

"Don't be afraid.... You needn't slay the beast or scale the ENTIRE mountain... That is NOT HOW IT IS DONE! You only need to move through TODAY....THINK of the distance you have already covered....
FOCUS on your STRENGTHS.... Let each new step remind you of your freedom... Let every breath you take remind you of your power ... Seek out friends and guides... they ARE anxious to help...
YOU ARE NOT ALONE! You ARE understood... this road HAS been walked before...
DANCE life's DANCE....Just a few steps at a time.. and in the wink of an eye... you WILL wonder to yourself... WHAT BEAST? WHAT MOUNTAIN? Was I having a DREAM?"

Pretty powerful stuff, huh? Well, then I open it up... there is a feather (still trying to figure that out - maybe birds of a feather flock together?)... and this HAND-WRITTEN message:

Courtney,
Sometimes a card is in order. The only way out is THROUGH... one day at a time.
I love you,
Aunt Pam

Are tears welling up in your eyes yet? All of this happened today... and is emotionally INCREDIBLE....

I look at my life, my struggles, my dreams, my positiveness, my negatives, my energy, the sunshine people say I spread.... and I feel great.... Today has been a FANTASICAL day...One that goes down in the history books for me.

I hope I have made your day just as great... Thank YOU for being here.. for coming back... for listening even though you TERDS never comment ...LOL...

I still HEART YOU !!!!!!

Until next time....
Smooches and BIG TEXAS HUGS! (Cause that is how I roll...)
;)

  1. Courtney, what a day! You are right on the mark in so many ways. Your aunt's message to you - very powerful! And I do think it is so great to hear from people in a real phone call and/or written word. As much as we are connected in this internet world, it helps to have something tangible. And everyone deserves to be a celebrity for a day! They may not make sitcoms about people like us....but we have interesting lives because of the challenges our lives hold. And we have the power of family and friends. And I was thrilled to write about you because - YOU ROCK!
