The Power of A Good Night’s Rest

Yesterday was not a good day for me…I felt like a failure…had I blogged last night, it would have been pure word vomit…and I just didn’t feel like doing that…the day was not horrible – in retrospect…I’m just too hard on myself…and when I put my name on something, I want it to be perfect…there was nothing perfect about yesterday…

I slept more than 8 hours last night…I haven’t done that in weeks! It was GREAT! I feel rested, restored, and ready to face the day…the weather is beautiful, the boys are going to spend time with their dad today – not a lot of time, but hell, a break’s a break!  Today has a lot of potential for something wonderful…and I’m going to go find out what it is…

I’m amazed at the power of a good night’s rest…I should do that more often!

There’s no significance to posting this song…except that I smile and dance whenever I hear it…and I feel like doing both right now!

Feeling Quiet

I’ve been feeling quiet lately…not “Woe is me” quiet.  More like “Nothing to say” quiet…I think I spend too much time not talking to anyone.  It’s starting to feel natural to have nothing to say…

Anyone who’s known me for more than about five minutes knows that I’m a talker…get me going and you pretty much can’t shut me up…but I’m getting stuck in my head, I think…which won’t end well…eventually, whatever is keeping me in my head will have to come out.  Not looking forward to that day…

I’m ready for something to happen…I feel like there’s something on the horizon, and I just can’t see it yet…

The Importance of Music

Anyone who is a friend of mine on Facebook has probably noticed that I post a LOT of music…I love music, it makes me happy.  The right song can either convey my mood or change it altogether…and a great song can make me dance!

Sometimes, I feel like this:

Sometimes, like this:

The songs that make me want to get up and dance (without the aid of alcohol) are usually the ones that would make my mother ask, “Is this music or noise?”

And then there are those songs that just make me happy:

I love love LOVE to dance…in my living room…after the boys have gone to sleep…and no one can possibly see me.  Unless of course, I’ve had a couple of drinks…and then I’ll hit a dance floor and close the place down.  I think I’ve got music in my soul.  Too bad my singing sounds like I’m killing a cat.  I’ll stick with listening and dancing…

As much as I like to dance, though, my taste in music runs the gambit: Rodney Crowell, White Stripes, Michael Franti, Queen, Cowboy Mouth, the list goes on and on…

Music speaks to people (at least it speaks to me)…if you ever need to say something and don’t know how, try music.
