Friday Night Quotes: Movers, Shakers And Dream Makers

Anyone else feel that they are on a perpetual hamster wheel in their life?  Going through the motions but not really getting anywhere?

In a rut?

Or do you feel like you are a supporting character in your own life?

Anybody?

Don’t get me wrong, I have a great life.  I am married to the love of my life, have the best fur babies any fur mama can ask for, a house that feels like a home, and great family and friends.  I can actually say that I enjoy my job most days and I have my health -which is definitely something money can’t buy.

But I want more.

My eyes are constantly on my phone and my head is in the clouds.  I’m not really living.

I’m definitely drinking.

And watching.

And judging. 

BUT

I’m not growing,

Or thriving.  (Hmmm, may need to use this material for the next local amateur poetry jam night).

I need some inspiration from some folks who didn’t waste their time checking their iPhones or updating their Instagram/Facebook daily (yeah, yeah, I realize I just shared this post on Facebook).

Thanks for reading (and perhaps relating) to this blog.

Much love,

Ang

#ALS Ice bucket challenge: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

If you don’t know what the ALS ice bucket challenge is, you are officially living under a rock or you don’t have  access to social media.  My friend Angie challenged me and P to participate BUT I am going to opt out (I do love ya though Angie).  Even though I am not participating, I still want to encourage others to join in on the challenge and keep raising awareness.
