Jump Me!

The crisp air nipped at my nose as I trudged  through the darken parking lot towards my car.  I had stayed late to wrap up some work and at this point,  I just wanted to get home.

I unlocked the door and slipped behind the steering wheel. I could feel my cold breath against the semi-frozen hands.  I turned the key and the engine whimpered a bit before falling silent...my battery was dead!

What do I do?  I noticed a running car parked across the lot.  This was my answer.  I tapped on the window and peered at bewildered set of eyes as the window slowly opened.

I asked if he could jump me but he didn't have jumper cables.  It was a good thing that I have some in my car. He hooked them up and suggested that I pour a can of cola over the battery to help clear off some of the corrosion when I get home because he believed the battery wasn't getting enough juice.

I smiled and thanked him for his help.  I am sure the cola tip would have worked but I figured I would end up making the problem worse so I just took it to the mechanic.  His diagnosis...the battery was bad...so no cola bath in the world could have fixed my problem....

I have learned that taking shortcuts sometime take longer than the actual path...

Say What You Mean

I haven't been online much this week because real life has a way of dragging you back in...

This has been a pretty crazy week for me but mostly because of a lack of communication with my boss.  I just realized that mind reading is a skill that my superior believes I possess but at las, I do not.

This has lead to a lot of frustrating moments for me because in a tug-a-war of who is right, the balance always tips to the one getting the higher paycheck.  The poorer one ends up re-doing everything to appease the God-like ego baring one.

I like efficiency and working smarter not harder so I have to wrap my head around communicating with someone who doesn't say what they mean but has hidden meaning behind words.

Where is my decoder ring when I need it...

Shine the Light

I had a great time last night.  It has been a awhile since I just went out and danced all night.

 I forgot how alive you feel as you become one with the beat and transcend to another world of rhythm and motion.

I woke up this morning refreshed and ready to tackle my day...then I ran into a hater online.

 Apparently I am so pathetic that I write a blog about chatting.com...ok, this just made me laugh.

 I guess I should be insulted but frankly, this person obviously doesn't get who I am and why I am here and he can think anything he likes.  It still won't change why or what I write about.

If you read my blog from beginning to end, you will see how much I have grown and changed over the years.  I am definitely not the same person I use to be and I think that is a very good thing.  There is so much of who I am that I hold back from this online world because there is no place for it here.

 You only get a glimpse of who people really are here and that has to be enough.  If it is not, then you need to step out from behind the keyboard and shine the light of the real world on things.

I know who I am and I know what it takes for me to be truly happy and they may make me pathetic in your eyes but frankly, I live my life looking though my own lens...

Dance with Me

Have you ever heard a song that you can't get out of your head?  Well, that happened to me today.  It seemed like every time I turned on something that song was playing.

It isn't me usual style of music but there is something about it that moves me.  The song is "Bailando" and I simply cannot get it out of my mind. The song in about dancing and having fun.

 I have decided to learn some latin dancing this weekend as a way of paying homage to this mesmerizing song.  I just watched the video and that is what inspired me to go for it.

I wouldn't say I was a great dancer but I can keep up with the young-ins at the club.  Wish me luck~ and don't forget to play my song..

The Playground

You know, I haven't posted anything new for several days and the pressure of coming up with something interesting to write, well it is starting to get to me.   

I tossed many topics around in my head but nothing seemed good enough to share.  I almost walked away without a new post.  What changed my mind? 

 I decided to sit down and see where my mind went when there were no rules or expectations.  I just started to write and low and behold I ended up here, with you..

I guess it doesn't matter how we got here....just that we have arrived.  Here our adventure begins...I am curious, what is your pleasure...what makes you smile...where would you like me to take you...

Our imagination is our playground...close yours eyes and let the fun begin...

An Hour

In a few moments, the clock will strike 2AM and it will fall back to 1 AM.  I will gain an extra hour due to daylight savings.  This is a true do-over moment.

What will I do with my extra time?  There are so many possibilities...but I want my hour to be meaningful today.  I don't want to squander it on something reckless or selfish.

If I could do anything with it, I would give it to someone else ...an extra hour to... spend with a loved one...or a lost love...  maybe I would give it to someone who had only a short time left~ one hour is so precious...

I will do my best to make my hour meaningful...What are you going to do with your hour?

Masterpiece

As I was driving to work today, I was taken back by the pink and purple hues of the morning sky. The color palate was so cleverly woven into itself you know it must have been created by a great painting master and I almost didn't notice it at all.

How many times have I driven to work and not given the sky the slightest glance? Why was today so different than the others?  I just happened to look up and the right moment and that one instance changed me.

  Have you noticed that we spend so much of our time living with our heads down?  We are always so busy juggling life and focusing on what is right in front of us that we fail to notice our surroundings.  We simply forget to look up.

There is more around us, so much more.  We just have to take the time to glance upwards so we don't miss the little masterpieces of life so look up my friend...
