Pondering…

Posted in Observations with tags , , on April 28, 2009 by ♥JellyBean♥

You know what I want, what I really really want? I want to start making JH Reports again. Remember those? Actually I really want to start doing anything productive again… other than WoW, gym, work & sleep. Hold onto your hobbies & passion people – when you lose ’em, life gets dull!

Who says there’s no such thing as fairytales?

I’m a mom, first & foremost. Before I can do anything else, I have to think like a mom. It’s like what I do. My kids are younger so I watch a lot of movies, kids movies. I love it though because I’m still a kid at heart. My question is, when do we as adults stop believing?

I sent Hawks off to work this morning with a cup of coffee, a cheese bagel & a kiss and I went in to watch The Spiderwick Chronicles. Though not really a traditional fairytale, it got me thinking.

How can we say we’re not living a fairytale? In my life there is conflict, like a fairytale. There is hope, like a fairytale. There is a hero (whether it be yourself or another), like a fairytale. There are so many similarities that it’s hard to say that there’s no such thing. Okay so there isn’t a castle, a goblin king (David Bowie was hawt), glass slippers or a witch… but the same basic principals are there.

What fairytale are you in?

Why Today is Better Than Yesterday…

Posted in Observations, Real Life, SecondLife® with tags , on July 15, 2008 by ♥JellyBean♥

Before 11 a.m. I had a very eventful day. I managed to fight my boys on receiving their immunizations, lost 3.5 hours of work because of it, backed into another car leaving the Dr office, had my windshield hit with a golf ball sized rock on my way to work, saw a horrible motorcycle death on Iowa & 23rd St and theres numerous other things that have upset me today that I won’t go into here.

However, today is better than yesterday.

No matter how completely awful my day was, there’s always a reason or two hidden somewhere, just takes a little searching to realize that it was better than the day before. There is always something to be thankful for. I don’t think we remind ourselves often enough that it’s not really all that bad.

Days like today I remind myself how lucky I am to have a wonderful man that loves me unconditionally & openly even though he may not always agree with my choices, wonderful friends that are there for the good times and the bad, healthy happy children, warm Kansas days, 90 degree rules at work, and hell, I’m even thankful for Kelso.

Remind yourself of the good things everyday but moreso when your day just doesn’t feel like it’ll ever get better.
