Generally, I am quite a heavy sleeper. Last night, however, I awoke to the sounds of a violent thunderstorm. As I listened to the thunderous clatter, and noticed the flashes of lightening, I took advantage of the moment and turned over to a more comfortable position.
Though I realize the power of nature, for some reason I love thunderstorms. I could sleep for days in a good one. So, as you can imagine it wasn't long before my deep-seated slumber returned.
When I walked outside this morning to leave for work, the sky was clear but the evidence of heavy rains and winds was apparent. I dreaded letting the dogs out because I could foresee that in a matter of seconds, the German Shepherd at least would be a complete mud ball.
That's the breaks I suppose.
So it's been a bit of a busy week at work, and a lot of thoughts and confusion abound, but I always find time to escape "within" and relax, whether it is sitting at the park during my lunch hour and meditating, or just getting away from my desk at least. I find solace in my music and companionship everywhere with my friends, guides, soul mates (don't we have more than we realize!)
Keeps me off the ledge! :) I jest... I love being a little mad, but I at least can admit and realize it, so does that make me less loco?
Here I am this afternoon plugged into my playlist (the one you can see on the left down there near the bottom on my blog). I change the songs around sometimes, or maybe add a few tunes I have been dying to hear. When I am working on my PC it is convenient because I can just plug in my headphones and close myself off to the outside world (well, mostly).
This weekend, don't forget it's time to "Spring Forward" with Daylight Savings Time. I can hardly believe it's that time, and of course I don't take kindly to losing an hour of sleep... but think of it this way, I get a little extra daylight to enjoy riding my bike.
See?? There is some sort of blessing in every inconvenience, some sort of gift with every loss... Something good about everything. It's all in how we look at the situation.
Think more positive with me, I'm trying to.
Just waiting for my change...
