I'm just a fat gal with a blog and an opinion. Well, lots of opinions.

Evening Reflections…


So, Monday when I posted that Benjamin Franklin thing? That kind of stuck with me a bit and I’ve begun to write down my thoughts before going to bed. I don’t share them, with anyone surprisingly, but they are there and for me. It’s kind of awesome. I allows me to let things go or sort things out or save them for later in way. I also use it to say things to people that I wouldn’t normally have the balls or whatever to say to them. I like this practice a lot. I feel that it’s doing me some good.

Now it’s not reflecting on the good I had done that day. Sometimes I feel like I don’t do much good at all. Other times, well, I just know what I have done and done need to reflect on it. If I have gone an entire day without putting my foot in my mouth (gawd, like last night, wtf?!), then that is all the good I can aim for right now. Things have been difficult for me, surely, but not so terrible that I am unable to be me. I had a few days like that. I was a mess for a minute there. I think I am finally over that hump, as they say, and am ready for my next endeavor!

As I mentioned yesterday, I would like to seek out small adventures on a regular basis. I’m calling them “tiny adventures” because, well, I’m poor and I don’t yet know what I wanna do! So that sort of restricts things a bit. I like calling them that because it seems less intimidating, too. I don’t want to talk it up too much and make people think I’m going on some grand journey or whatever. But I do want to get out and do things that speak to my soul, that inspire me and ignite my passions in life.

I think I shall go to the local art walk this Friday and see where that leads me. I so miss seeing and being a part of the art world! Even if my bff isn’t going, though he usually is, I will go on my own. How exciting?! Ha-ha! I do love downtown San Jose. Someone recently remarked how blah it was and I was so stunned. To each their own.

I would like to go to a local book store and insert Body Revolutionary pamphlets into their diet books! That would be fun! I would like to do lots of things, I suppose. It’s just difficult to decide on a direction, purpose and what exactly. I would love your suggestions. But I appreciate your encouragement. You have all been there for me these past two months and I thank you from the bottom of my boobs (I’d say my heart, but c’mon, we all know which is bigger!). <3

    JM: Thank you so much for saying that! Some days I feel the only good I do is staying alive. But your friendship means I’m doing something right! <3

    Yay for tiny adventures!!! I think I am going to the art walk, but I got a free ticket to the ballet that same day. So I will be walking 1st street after 10 or so. Yes, I know exactly how that sounded. hahahahaha I will text you when I am out to see if you are still there.

    Adventures come in all shapes and sizes, just like we do. My current adventure is trying out a couple new crafts. I’ve taken up needle felting and got a book on naalbinding, which I’ve been reading through preparatory to giving it a go.

    One thing I enjoy doing is getting in the car with Mr. Twistie, picking a direction, and just seeing what we see along the way. We’ll stop and check out garage sales, eat in little restaurants we probably would never had heard of if we hadn’t gotten in the car that day, wander in pretty parks, and go window shopping.

    Another thing I love to do that doesn’t even cost a single penny is to get on the internet, pick a subject, Google it, pick a link, and follow that to other sites or subjects. You can wind up in some really interesting mental places that way! LOL! And you do learn some interesting things.

    That is my raise! hahahahaha. I kid. I said it was a “They’re talking about it” type situation. I don’t have high hopes for it.
