Afternoon Edition - 9/29/07

Signs of Being Human
Like everyone, else I have my days; Those days when I look around and begin to question everything good, bad or indifferent in my life. Am I satisfied with my job; is this the man who I live my forever with; am I really happy? At those moments I get very introspective and pull away – from everyone, all things that are my reality. Last night I sat up in the middle of my bed and just watched brainless TV. Sorting through my thoughts, my wants, and my desires. Is there such a thing as completely happy? Is there such a feeling as fully satisfied? Isn’t life about change, ups-and-downs, triumphs and defeats? My life is a dream for some folks, but as the saying goes, “To one who much is given, much is expected.” (or something like that) This weekend I’m pulling away a bit….regrouping myself mentally and emotionally. See, I recognize that my worth is important to me…that regardless of how good I try to make my man and my friends feel, I sometimes need to recharge my battery because it has become drained charging everyone else’s. So, I’m doing some housework, hanging with myself and then allowing myself the time to dive into my thoughts. I’m going to blow my own head up today and enjoy the fruits of my own labor – I am beautiful, inside and out. Yeah, I’m still here for everyone, but suddenly that little voice inside is begging, “See me today.”

Christina’s Beautiful reminds me of so many things…things I have the tendency to forget.

On Blast
Regrouping isn’t about being depressed or feeing self-absorbed; it’s about recognizing your worth. Sometimes other folks see us as indestructible - un-feeling even – but we feel.
How do you recharge you so that you can bring ‘amazing’ to everyone else?

Keep passin’ the open windows…

Man, you MUST recharge. Otherwise, how can you lift others' spirits with your winning personality? = )

Recreation is a concept often lost on most Americans. For some reason, we feel invincible. It's important to chill out and slow down sometimes.

To recreate, I don't travel or vacation (those trips never, ever end up being relaxing anyway.)

I take a day or two from the office and just take care of things around the house that get ignored and get some rest.

To recharge myself I like to ride a bike and play tennis. Reading a interesting book. Meditating works wonders for my mind and body.

good to take some 'me-time'. and music always elevates my energy to bring me around.
