Already? Are You Sure??

Good Monday everyone :o)

As I was driving in to work this morning, I was thinking, "this seems awfully familiar..." Heh heh It has been a full 7 days since I was at work last. Its been wonderful being away!!!
Now I've got to gear up and stay busy for 3 days, then get more time off. Thank goodness for short work weeks. ARG!

So, I made a few pairs of earrings yesterday. Still not really feeling the creative juiciness, but at least, its starting to bubble. I need to look into what colors are hot for spring/summer, so I can have an idea of what I should be making. Generally, I don't follow that type of guideline. I usually make just whatever pops into my mind. This year tho...I'm gonna start at least paying attention to that. It couldn't hurt, right??

So...last night I watched "The Secret" again. My BFF was having a rough night. Got a really nasty email from one of her siblings and was just at her wits end. She kept talking about how something needed to "shift" and she must need to change something in her life. I thought, "ding ding ding!!!" I said, "Dude...we should totally watch "The Secret". She whirled around and said, "you want to?" I said, "Absolutely! Plus, I think you could really use it right now." Yep. She really did need it. She felt SO much better when it was over; she even took notes during the movie. :o) And you know...I really wanted to say something profound -- something she would remember and try to apply - something! But nothing came to me. I mean, one thing I've learned with my friends who want/need advice: I can talk till I'm blue in the face about what they could do, should do, what I would do...but until they have that "lightbulb moment", it doesn't really stick with them. I'm so glad I thought to suggest the movie. It also helps a great deal to watch people who have an education - smarts - lets be honest...letters behind their just seems to make it more "official" sounding. {they must know what they're talking about ~ they have phd/md behind their names!} heh heh But seriously? These people have spent their lives applying the secret and have seen results. Who better to explain it?

All in all, I think watching it helped her realize what she needs to do to change her life. I'm so glad for it. She said, "can we send a copy of this to the White House?" LOL!! I said, "lets do it!" I'm feeling great today :o) Watching that always renews my spirit and makes me think how many things are possible. ♥

Thats all for me right now. I hope you all have a wonderful day!!!
Love & Peace to All,

Oh I totally have to watch that movie again, I just love it and it's been FAAAR too long! I'm so glad you have a short week and that you found some creative time. It's hard when we go through dry spells but they do pass thank heavens. Hope you're having a wonderful day (now that it's nearly over)! You're the best Ang and I adore you so much - thank you for being such a wonderful friend not only to me but to those that need a good friend.
