Things I Learned Today / Tuesday, August 10, 2021

Things I learned today…

I’m off carbs. Uuggghh. Y’all pray for me.

I hate to even tell you that, but I probably need the accountability. I really, really, really don’t like myself right now. Something has to give, and I know it, so here goes.

How is it possible to want to be productive but need to rest…but need to get up early and get going…but need to be at home doing chores…but need to be with your kids…but need to be at work…but would like to have time to yourself…but need to be getting things done…

I met more new dancers today who had enrolled online. Oh, the joy on faces coming through my door! The returning students are over the moon, and the new ones can’t stop smiling! What a year YEAR 10 is about to be! I’ve had the studio for TEN YEARS. Wooooohoooooooo!

I painted my own nails this morning before I left the house, and I thought I would try a color I’ve been admiring on other people. I think it looks like dog water on me. Bah.

I want an amethyst. Can you believe my favorite color is purple, and I don’t have an amethyst?! What the heck?!

Our cats routinely sleep on the back of the couch. Hudson has noticed this, and now he climbs up to sleep on the back of the couch just like the cats. Cat beds and dog beds sit empty on the floor.

I’m about tired of waiting. I’m decorating my house for Fall soon to try and push it on in. Damn this 98 degrees with a million percent humidity thing.

Listen to me…Make. People. Feel. Loved. People want to feel loved, seen, appreciated, valued, important, like they’re “somebody”. Be a person who makes others feel this way. Put that in the bank.

That’s all. We learn every day, don’t we?
