I woke up this morning to a Sunny SUNNY day. I got dressed in jeans and a fitted tee and hightailed it out of the house to find that it's CHILLY!!!!!
I am sitting at 'The Fall Cafe' and it is almost one in the afternoon on a school day. Today my only obligations are self-imposed! To fill my cup, a. biker out the window just blew me a kiss. I feel like breaking out into song.
In blissful celebration of this holiday I find that perhaps I never have any cause for upset that isn't slightly motivated by job-job. A day off seems more a gift of the gods than a typical American holiday.
I hope this day finds you full of bliss and radiating happiness. I am pretty sure they can feel my joy in Antarctica today.
This weekend my top-five friend, JenMO asked "What gets in your road?" I LOVED this bit of phrasing. It's so much more effective and visual than 'What are your road blocks?"
On this day of lovely days, I suggest clearing the things that get in your road with a bit of distraction. If something isn't working, do something else! When I am a grump, or things are sucking, my quickest way to shift gears is to listen to something that lifts me up and puts some pep in my step.
Here are a few songs that transport me to here, sitting at 'The Fall Cafe' sipping a cup of mint tea and cozying up to everything I want to do - even when I am some lame place that makes me cringe.
OH man SO feel good.
If you've got a frown, turn it upside down with Bonnie Tyler. Man, this girl's videos motivate me into laughing no matter WHERE I am! Keep an eye out for the neon whip! This video was Apple iPod commercial motivating, 20 years before her time.
I saw Lenka open for Missy Higgins at Terminal 5 last year. I was girl crushing on her from the first chord. I think that if my art were music it would be THIS music. As we all know, my art is pretty dang happy.
