61

Wow, I have 61 followers.  I mean, I knew I was awesome but...

;)

I guess what I am really trying to say is thank you.  Thank you followers for stopping by from time to time to read the random musings of a quarter-aged woman going through life as positively as possible.  Your visits and comments are immensely appreciated, and help reassure me my words mean something.

I mean, why else say something unless it's useful...?

Because it feels good, that's why.
That's why I'm here.  Writing feels good.  Having people like my writing feels better.  Sharing personal insights and reading others' blogs are just one way to reach out and connect.  Technology is an interesting thing, eh?  Bringing so many to believe they have all the answers right at their fingertips, almost immediately- shortening our attention spans to almost nothing and completely erasing the need for memory....

Thankfully, not everyone experiences this.  Though there are plenty that still fall victim to society's pull and wish to prove something, be cool, be the best-- I feel as though there is a rapidly growing percentage of folks who just want to be heard and share genuine positive feelings with those willing to listen.  Would you agree?  I mean, step back for a second and consider how the focus has shifted from "bigger is better" to "efficient and renewable is BEST!".  *Ahem* For those of you sitting back and thinking, "All those people who take their own bags into the grocery store are crazy hippies" then maybe you're on the wrong blog?  I kid, I kid.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE TECHNOLOGY.  Here I am, sitting with my bass heavy headphones blasting Mika in my ears, checking weather updates for my trip to California this weekend, and sporting fake toenails (ya, don't ask...), but that doesn't mean I'm not trying.

Oh Earth.  One in a million.

Have you seen The Pyramid Code [[on Netflix Instant Watch- yes, I'm addicted]]?  SO AWESOME.  I highly recommend it if you have a natural gravitation toward Egypt or forward thinking.  Good stuff.  It's five 45 minute or so episodes, most of it is wordy and sometimes it's all over the place- but if you sit through the duration there is brilliant insight to be had.

Yes, I've had a few glasses of wine, but I am celebrating.  I will be with my son tomorrow.  Just thinking about it makes me want to tear up.... I can't believe I survived SIX months without seeing him.  Yes, I feel like a terrible mom (I know I'm not, but it eats me up inside everyday and night...), I feel empty and lost without fulfilling my purpose...

*Clears throat*  Alright enough of that.  In August I will see my baby on a regular basis.  I will be his Mom.  I will be his AWESOME mom.  I have no doubt moving to California will be hard, but every time I wrap my arms around that incredibly intelligent, creative little man things will fall into place.

Life IS good. Life is worth living.  Ya, I like that.

Good night everyone.  Thanks for tuning in, and I wish you an adventurous weekend.
