For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.
{2 Timothy 1:7 }

Happy thoughts are a choice. A happy life is a choice. I choose to let go and let God. I want to be happy. I choose to be happy. I will do everything in my power to have happy thoughts and control my thoughts. No matter what happens now, I know that I will soon be happy. This is just a stage in my life that will pass quicker than I can realize right now and I need to trust in Him and trust in myself that I will get through it. And will learn many life lessons along the way.

I think I'm going to go have a glass of wine and read my book now. :)

So I will be rockin out to Lasso, 1901, and Lisztomania all. afternoon. long. :)

Happy Friday loves!

Stressed to the Max

Sooooo this week has been a little... intense. In one week I have gone from a gal with one fantastic job, to one not so great part-time job, to one not so great part-time job with interview, to one not so great part-time job with interview and part time gig for a few weeks, back to a gal with one fantastic job. My boss' are a little dramatic to say the least. This is the second time in a few months that this has happened. Now I know the economy is shaky and no one's job is safe, but there is a certain tact and responsibility as a boss to keep your employees out of the dark, and stressed as little as possible. For no other reason then we work more productively that way!!

Needless to say I am relieved this week is over. I am still very excited about the phone interview I had last night with the AMAZING Tiff's Treats (as seen here) but I am even more relieved to get one of these bad boys in my system as soon as possible. :)

Lazy days

To say that I have been unmotivated lately would be a huge understatement. I usually revel in the thought of setting up a new space. It usually comes with the territory of the whole designer thing. USUALLY. I can't seem to get there this time. I don't know what it is about this new apartment but I can't seem to want to unpack! I think it might have started because I was still transitioning and feeling weird about the situation, but I think it has turned into clutter empathy. I figure if I can live like this, what's the point of spending time unpacking? I guess I figure I have no one coming over these days, so why make my place look pretty. That sounds so depressing, yet for some strange reason... it isn't. I wish it was unpacked and pretty, but I have no desire to get it there! CRAZY- I KNOW!

ANYWHO. This weekend (for once) I have nothing going on but a quick shopping trip with Momma on Saturday to pick out my dear friend Amber's baby shower present. This weekend I will get it done. I will unpack. My dog will love that she can actually walk around. I will hang my art and photos on the walls. I will.

Check back Monday friends. Here's hoping. Happy Friday!!!!

p.s. Bon Iver on Pandora will get you so relaxed and ready for the weekend. DO IT. DO IT!
