Where would you be right now?

If you had a choice – right now… where would you be?  I catch myself always wanting to be somewhere else and I’m not sure why?  Perhaps it’s because I’m difficult to satisfy or maybe it’s simply because I get bored – REALLY easy.

So my question to you is – where would you be right now if you could be anywhere you want?  Would it be on a beach, maybe with your family or simply relaxing on a couch…

It's plan jane outside - but inside is SUPER unique!

I found a house that I really love… it’s plain jane outside, but SUPER unique inside – and I would love to be there right now!  Don’t get me wrong, I love the house that I’m in, but wouldn’t it be nice to live in your ‘dream house’?  I work so hard – I should be able to own a house that I truly love… don’t you think?

So, where do you want to be right now?

…Off to Arizona

Yep, that’s right… I’m heading to Arizona tomorrow.  My parents live there and I haven’t seen them for quite some time.  I miss my mom a lot!  She setup an office for me so I can work from her home for the week – so it definitely won’t be a vacation, moreover an office with my mom!  I’ll be there for a week and hope to enjoy my time with my parents and a new office!

I’ll update you in a few days!

Passion – do you have it in your life?

The dictionary defines passion as “a strong liking or desire for or devotion to some activity, object or concept.”

Do you have passion in your life?

I ask this only because passion can be had in many different ways.  There are certain things I’m passionate about – but I often wonder if everyone feels that ‘passion’ in their life.

If you don’t feel passion in your life – try and find it.  Try and figure out what it is your most passionate about in life and run with it.  Your passion is what wakes you up in the morning.  Your passion is what makes you strive for nothing less than the best.  Your passion is what keeps you living and breathing in this wonderful world.

Follow your passion and you’re sure to life a beautiful life.

Remembering September 11th

I don’t really have much to say other than to keep in your prayers the people that lost their lives on September 11th and to say a prayer for their families too. Always remembered, never forgotten.

I’m secretly in love with The Hills on MTV

I can’t believe I just admitted it, but I did. I secretly watch The Hills. For some reason, I’m extremely attracted to this show and I’m not quite sure why. Maybe it’s because I yearn for the big city life, or maybe for that young puppy love we’ve all been through…

Some of my other secret loves would have to be most anything on channel E! – like Pam on the loose, Denise Richards and anything in between. It makes me wonder why a lot of us watch these types of shows. Why are we so attracted to the lives that people live (especially when their rich)? Is it because we want to live through them in our ‘secret’ life?

Wouldn’t it be cool if we could just go back in time (when we were 21) and run around without worrying about anything other than who’s talking smack about me, what I’m wearing, or possibly what club I’ll be at tonight, etc. Maybe that’s why we watch? I watch in annoyance, but I’m so addicted!

Do you dig these types of shows too – but wouldn’t normally admit it? I finally admit it (but try not to tell too many people – I’d be pretty embarrassed! LOL).

On another note… leave Palin alone!

Leave Palin alone!  I’m a true, hard headed democrat and I’m extremely involved in this election, but I’m sick of people digging into the lives of Palin’s children.  Yes, it’s important to know her past and what she’s done and any skeletons in the closest – but leave her flippin’ family alone.

IMO, I am not rooting for Palin or any republican for that matter – but come on people… it’s getting ridiculous re: how many are bashing her pregnant daughter.  It’s not like this is the first seventeen year old that has been knocked up AND it’s none of your business!

Point is – regardless of party… the children of our running parties in the election of 2008 are off limits.

P.S Obama rocks!

Never Satisfied? More of what?

I’ll start out by saying that I am truly blessed on many different levels – actually, very blessed!  But why is it that I’m never quite satisfied with things?  I’m always very hard on myself, and I do think that that has a lot to do with it, but there’s got to be something else… and I’m trying to figure it out.

The one thing I hope for is to be at a point in my life where I’m content with me and my surroundings.  I think it may have to start with letting go of things I cannot control and ‘rolling with the punches’ more.  I really think I need to let more things slide.  But I feel that if I let my guard up in that manor, that the things I work towards may not be 100% and that bugs the hell out of me.

I’m not sure who I inherited my drive and stubbornness from, but I know one thing is for sure… I have worked my tail off to be in the position I am (in life) right now.  But yet, I still have the yearning for more. I want MORE, MORE, MORE.  But that ‘more’ is something I cannot define.  More of what?

That’s the question of the day – more of what?  Hmmm…
