What's Happening Wednesday!

Haha! Not that kind of What's Happening!!
On a side note, I loved that show!

But um...
That's probably not all that important, right?
Seriously though, don't you miss the fun sitcoms that used to be on T.V.?
I was a Tuesday night girl...
Happy Days
Laverne & Shirley
Three's Company
Oh my gosh, best night on T.V.!
Nothing compared to Saturday morning cartoons in the 70's though.
Cartoons now are horrible!
 Give me Bugs Bunny and Scooby Doo any day!
I am such a dork.
Umm...what was I going to tell you about?!
Oh yeah. Geez, losing my mind.
After taking a couple days break to get my head and my body restored, I am feeling a bit better today.
Started with a nice workout this morning.
 My favorite boxing circuit.
Alternating cardio, boxing and weighted leg work.
It is one of those workouts that always feels like it kicks your booty.
Only a few minor complaints from the knee. I wore the bionic brace.
Speaking of the knee...
This little box of love contains my new knee brace that I hope will help make my runs more comfortable.
That left knee just wants to keep on complaining and I am not ok with that!
My honey and I plan to run a half marathon together next year and so the knee needs to get with the program. I did a bunch of research on braces and hope this one does the trick; I plan to try it out in the AM.

This is a pretty heavy week for me at school so almost all of my day was spent on crisis and assessment and the hybrid model of intervention. Fun stuff!
 I actually really like the class and am learning so much from it.
All of the puzzle pieces are starting to come together from my classes and it makes me excited about being a counselor. It may be a long way off before I am fully licensed but it feels so right!
So  many good things are happening for me, I feel truly grateful for everything and everyone in my life.
I am also grateful for a better day today.
My husband told me not to focus on the negative but the thing is...
I actually wasn't focusing on the negatives, the day just was not a good one.
Clear up to the virus attack on my computer (caught by my software...thank goodness!) and then a bloody nose before getting in bed. Really?! LOL...
The day gave me a virtual punch in the nose just to remind me that it isn't possible to have control of all the things, all the time.

Ok, before I go tell me that I am not the only cartoon kid of the 70's!
What was/is your favorite?
Pink Panther
Scooby Doo
Bugs Bunny
Speed Buggy
Rocky & Bullwinkle (yeah, I'm that old!)

Ever have one of those days?

I have to say, I started out the day with big plans for a fun post but my day went a little south and I am just kind of wanting it to be done with.
Each and every day I am grateful for the opportunity to be in school but there are times that it gets to be a bit much along with every day life stuff.
I have been doing my best to work some yoga in to my days but I can't get out of my own head right now.
Yeah, it's like that.
Perhaps my thoughts aren't the only distraction I have...
Miss Cleo, always helpful.

Thanks to an awesome cell phone extravaganza today, I had a lot of time to think about stuff and all I came up with is that there is just too much stuff. Definitely feeling like I am an overload and working on a plan to get a handle on it. No worries!

I am so grateful for my husband and his patience with me because I probably seem I am off my rocker from time to time. Haha!
Definitely not riding the crazy train just a lot going on at one time.
My neat and orderly way of doing business not always fit into the school schedule.
Why oh why can't the world conform to my ways!
On the flip side, I have some great things going on.
Happy to say that all of the "stuff" and busy work is for good things, great things even.
Among all the chaos that seems to be reigning supreme in my head right now, I know that it is all for all the good things that have yet to come. That is a great feeling!

One thing I will share with you is that (while on eternal hold with the cell tech support folks) I decided to throw together a place to share my pictures. Photography is a little habit or hobby that I enjoy and decided to give my pics their own home.
There will be a link (eventually) directly from the blog, but here you go:

Well, my computer antivirus just popped up and informed me that there is a threat that needs to be removed immediately from my computer.
Definitely time for this day to be over!

My friends...
There may be struggle, there may be tears (ok, that's just me) but keep reaching...

Hey you! Yes, you...You're fabulous!

I hope you are reading this blog right now, because if you are...
You know that the title was meant for you!!
I have faith in you, even if you don't!
I don't doubt you, even if you do!
You know why?
I can see you.
I can see the potential that you have.
I have the added benefit of not being inside your head and hearing all the negative talk!
THAT'S the problem!
From your guts all the way down to your toenails, you got what it takes!
Make sure that one of your goals includes getting your mind in the game!
Don't talk yourself out of something before you even start!
You CAN do ANYTHING you put your MIND to!
Your body says so, even if your mind tries to argue!
Push through one more rep, jog for 1 minute!
You can do ANYTHING for 1 minute!
Think you can't?
Stop thinking and just do it!

One Word Weekend {Hope}

Have you ever stopped to think about the power of one?
One word.
One thought.
One person.
Just one of anything can make such a big difference.
But words, words have power...
For a little something different this weekend I wanted to share just one word.
Maybe I will make this a regular weekend thing, we'll see.


 "Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all." ~ Emily Dickinson

"Hope is a waking dream." ~ Aristotle 

"Once you choose hope, anything's possible." ~ Christopher Reeve

"I hope for more love, joy and laughter
I hope you'll have more than you'll ever need
I hope you'll have more happy ever afters
I hope and you can all live more fearlessly
And you can lose all your pain and misery
I hope, I hope, yes, you can." ~ Joe Cocker

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

Do you have one word that you find powerful?
