My Illustrated Life

Sometimes we need a reminder, not to worry about what other people think or how they conduct themselves. Continue to do your own thing, YOU have potential!

Treading too lightly

The alarm clock sounded, to my dread, it was Monday. My morning began the same way, it was familiar.  The day felt like it was scripted from the movie Groundhog Day with Bill Murray. I questioned my routine. Just before I bolted out the door to work, I received a text message from a good friend, it was a link to an article titled,  5 Ways to have a Ridiculously Amazing Life.  The article was exactly what I needed to read, and confirmed what I was feeling.

Though my day didn’t change much from any other work day, I came to the conclusion that I have been treading too lightly through my days. Should shake up old routines, stomp through obstacles and squash complacency. I came out of hibernation today not to predict the weather (although I sense an early spring) but to predict an amazing life daily!

** If you feel stuck, or complacent in your days, the above mentioned article might be a good place to start.

Where the wind will take me

It felt like I was adrift at sea too long, encountered many storms along the way, but the journey has been a thrill. The weather has changed, now my course is set,  I will hang on for a bit longer and enjoy the view.
