Self Help

Oops I Did It Again

Look out Brittany, here I come!

Sometimes I wonder about myself.  It is too much on the brain? Am I getting old and the mind is not quite as it used to be?  Or is it just that it was still dark out in my entry way this morning.

It could be a good thing.  I have so much to be thankful for right now.  I have a home, good friends, my health, my kids are all doing well, I have a new grand-daughter, my old car is running well, my house is comfy and cozy, and even work is going pretty well.  I have taken on and accomplished new things like learning dance choreography (can you say JT Swing boys and girls?  I like how you say that).  I pray and express gratitude for these things every day.

On top of all that my new business ventures are about to fly including a promotional products company focusing on product licensing (Riversong Guitars!).  And of course I can’t forget my website and writing articles.

Being distracted is not new for me.  It is not good though when I forget and leave the oven or stove running.  This past week I thought I had turned off the crock pot when instead I had turned it on high.  I am very happy I woke up in the middle of the night and decided that maybe I should put the food away (another thing I am not so good at sometimes). 

I often lock the door, head out of the house and then head back into the house, unlock the door just to be sure I turned everything off.  I was thinking about a bad string on my guitar this morning when that happened.

So if you are wondering what it is I am really talking about, well here it is.  Once again I put on two different shoes.  At least this time they are both light colored sneakers so probably no one will notice.  More good news is that I am past the point of caring.  If this is the worst thing that happens today it will be a great day!  I am on my way to see my grand daughter, I have a guitar in my car and the sun is shining.

Wearing two different sneakers just adds a little spice to my day and gives me a reason to laugh at myself.  Laughing at yourself is a great life technique.  Sure beats the heck out of being self-critical.  If you did something silly today, leave me a note.  I can’t be the only one.

Oops, I did it again!
