Making the most of today and getting things done.
I looked at the calendar and thought, 'ugh, eighteen more days of this.' Yet, I was the one who decided to do it, so no complaining. And after this, I'm over it for sure.
On to the next agenda...
I decided to add a little more.
First of all, I was disappointed today when in my running about town, I decided to get my free truffle for the month only to discover that the Godiva stand disappeared from under the escalator in the River Park Square Mall!! I also realized all of a sudden I wanted everything and wanted to buy buy buy. Everywhere I'd be or look, something looked appealing! The temptation. Of course, when I know that I shouldn't spend money 'cause I'm saving and will need it for a better cause soon. And it's easy to justify spending. For someone else, a gift, any reason. I'm glad I withstood the temptation.
I've been listening to the same songs over and over in my car. They make me happy. I'll probably know all the lyrics soon and then as soon as I'll be sick of 'em, I'll stop.
And also, as I go along in the day, doing different things, seeing, listening, texting someone, doing my daily things, I wonder, what is that person or that person do during their day? Certain people that make me wonder about them in my own thoughts. All of a sudden the curiosity arose and I wondered. How do they spend their days? What are they doing? What are they listening to or who are they talking to? Who do they see, where do they spend their time...? Do others wonder?
I've been in an elevated state of mood lately. Why?
Not because I have a special someone. Not because I own something. Not because I am someone big.
I am single. I don't own a thing that means or costs much. No house. No car. (mine is really not mine) And aside from the people in my circle of friends, acquaintances, and family members, I am no one famous.
Why I am elevated is because I am free to be myself, stand up for what I believe, do what I want. Voice my opinion. And everything I do, I do it because I want to and I love to. I am a free spirit. It just feels grand. And only one thing is constant and concrete. That is that God is with me. Everything else is like the wind that blows each way. One day one way, another, a different way. Nothing is certain, nothing is concrete. Unexpected things come up daily that change the course and the direction of where I go.
And I enjoy each day as it is.
Because I don't know when that will end. And a trial of some sort will come into my life. Or things will become hard. Or when I will have to do things because I have to, not because I want to. I know how it feels, and those times are hard.
My flight to Minnesota is booked. My friend and I sat up last night getting it all set up. And I have to say, after last year's, plan after plan falling through, I'm still going to get excited and plan things. Only I won't be set on them. If they happen great! If I make it everywhere I want, Great! If not, I will go around and do something else. But I will still be excited and get all giddy about it. And still have all my hopes and dreams. And I am excited...
