I believe that everything happens for a reason.

I believe that everything has a purpose.

**and let me add that I believe it is up to you, you control the things that happen and what you do with them (hence the title of the post)** 🙂

So, I know that the things that have been going on with me lately are crucial.  They have purpose.  I think I’ve discovered what the purpose is, now I need figure out what to do about it.

I read a blog post by Elizabeth Potts Weinstein the other day – you can read it here… I assume that subconsciously this post, the fact that I understand the feelings in it well, and then mix in the tweets I read from people on Twitter… is the reason that I experienced what I did… (and I left this comment on her blog)

Last night, I had a dream in a dream… Where @andybaldwin was following me around changing out my bad food for healthy, fresh food and making me exercise.

Why Andy Baldwin and not say Dr. Oz? I guess because he is a single, HOT navy doctor and I’ve been thinking of starting to get in shape to run a marathon #butimscared – anyway – I’m digressing…

So as he’s taking all my food and making me do stretches and exercises, He said, “you have to focus on you and get it right” and I gathered up my Kit Kats, Peanut M&Ms & Dr.Peppers and walked out to the car and said “If I was thinking about me, I wouldn’t be in this shape”

So I woke up and the first thought I had? SELF CARE. Live Your Truth talking to me for sure right? 🙂 (read the referenced blog and you will understand)

I know that I wasn’t just referring to my physical shape when talking about being in this shape…

I was talking about my health, my career, my livelihood, my happiness…

Then tonight… While Reading to my son…  One of the Many Dr. Seuss books…  We read “Oh, the places you’ll go!”

I brought the book down and then tweeted these two parts…

…And when you’re in a slump, you’re not in for much fun, Un-slumping yourself is not easily done…

…I’m afraid that some times you’ll play lonely games too.  Games you can’t win ’cause you’ll play against you…

He’s a smart man… that Dr. Seuss 🙂

So to end it off..

…But on you will go  though the weather be foul.  On you will go though your enemies prowl…

…On and on you will hike. And I know you’ll hike far and face up to your problems whatever they are.

…And will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)

…Today is your day!  Your mountain is waiting. So… get on your way!…

interesting huh??



Yeah, you read that right.  Snot.  It is the bane of my existence.

I woke up this morning sick… again!  Really getting tired of this!


How bad was it?  Well let’s just say that between 7:30 and 8:30 this morning, I was dreaming.  (sorry in advance for the visuals here)  My dreams were about snot.  I was blowing my nose,  sneezing up snot, coughing up snot, had my hands in snot…. I was literally COVERED in snot at one point in a dream.  Nice visuals huh?  🙂  Think how I felt after I woke up!  I took a shower before I even brushed my teeth (very unusual for me since I cannot make it 10 minutes after waking up without brushing my teeth) – but I felt really yucky this morning!

Why am I so angry?  Well it could be because is an awesome sunny, warm day here in Florida – and normally that would be enough… but OH NO!  This is the 3rd cold I have had this year…  For those that have never read my blog before, my son accidentally broke my nose on January 1st.  Then I got a nice chest cold that lasted over 3 weeks.  Recovered from that for what felt like a day and got another nasty bug that stayed with me for 2 weeks, causing nose bleeds, and needing antibiotics.  FYI – I just threw the antibiotic bottle away last night… and then here we go again!

See why I’m angry?  Thought you might!  I’m just hoping that like my last little bug, my hubby and son do NOT get this!
