Not that we had any plans for this weekend, but I can tell you that riding out a major hurricane certainly wasn’t what I had in mind what-so-ever. The grocery stores are starting to fill up with folks buying bottled water, batteries, boards, milk and course the always needed toilet paper. I have never really figured out why the toilet paper, anyone out there have a clue?
Not many people have the privilege of doing what they love day in and day out but thankfully I do. I am a full time family counselor and get to help people solve life’s problems – it’s a great career to have. When I went to school back in the 80s I thought I’d be an attorney or many even an accountant but somehow just fell into counseling and have never looked back.
I really love being in my office. There are so many people that have an office window that just looks right into another window and/or building while mine has a great view of a garden and there’s lots of natural light. I consider myself truly blessed for this small piece of nature during a busy work day in an office environment. As a consummate professional, my office has a secretary and even offers wireless Internet service to all of my customers so they can get online while they’re waiting on their appointment. There’s nothing I wouldn’t do to make my patients more comfortable and I know they appreciate the extra thought. I love helping people any way I can and if making my patients feel more at home here is helpful to them, I’ll do anything I can. Who knew counseling would be so rewarding?
I’ve always dreamed of owning my own business but really the only thing I’ve ever been good at is dancing. I love moving my body and then it hit me – why don’t I open a dance studio where I teach kids the things I know? I’ve had my own place for about 2 years now and business is just wonderful.
I get to go to work every day knowing that I get to see some of my favorite kids and also get to dance my thoughts away. I have it all decked out with the best flooring and changing rooms and a good security system to protect all the AV equipment at night when I’m not there. I’m loving being a small business owner so far and if I just hang on another year or so I think I’ll be able to hire a couple more trainers as well! I never imagined being this successful and I know my family is almost as proud of me as I am of myself…and I really am!
There are a lot of great sayings concerning dance, but this is a new one that I saw on Facebook that really touched me enough to share it here on my personal blog.
It’s funny how we have turned into a society that really takes their Movies and Television so seriously. I can’t imagine living life without a Television set, I mean I can’t even go to sleep at night without my TV on all night long. There are times that I think that I would have really enjoyed a life in another time, like back in the frontier days, or over in Asia in the days of the Shogun with their Ninjas and Samurais, but when it is all said and done I don’t know how I could even consider such a thing since I am totally spoiled with all of today’s technologies that we pretty much take for granted in our daily lives.
We have pretty much turned into what The Jetson’s (the old 1960’s cartoon show set in the future) portrayed us as being. It’s funny how often I find that show being referenced when technology is being discussed. If you were to watch one or two of the episodes of that show, I believe you would be surprised to see all of the similarities of things that we are now using or on the brink of using. It can really freak you out.
I have always loved my TV. I’ve heard some good things about Netflix. I know a lot of people that subscribe to it and are ranting about all the movies that they get to see, when they want to see them. Guy Movies, Chick Flicks, Horror and Suspense Films, Action Films, Love Stories, you name it and you can find them on Netflix. I was kind of hoping that I would get a subscription for Christmas, but that didn’t happen and I can’t afford it myself right now, but that’s OK, there will always be good movies out there, no shortage there folks.
I really don’t remember this commercial. It was probably played at Half Time of the Super Bowl, which is know for their outstanding commercials that entertain so man people during that. But as I was checking out what YouTube had to offer with funny old ladies on commercials when I clicked on this one.
It’s funny but I have to admit it gets on my nerves after about 11 seconds into it.
