Close up and personal~Being yourself.

What? Is this too much for you? Then back up and go to another blog! Just like Boo Boo, I tend to be all up and in your face. And today is no different, but today is a day of celebration for one of the most amazing families I've ever met. I won't spill the beans... yet! Ok, it's public now, go over to THIS blog and wish the Alexanders a big congratulations. Welcome Seth Eyasu Alexander!!! Can't wait to meet this precious addition to the team!

So, what's the post about today? It's about getting to the point, living life, not wasting precious time, but also speaking what's in your heart. It's about telling people how you feel, not having regrets, looking back, and also moving forward. It's about the path that God has laid out for us. Not rushing it or trying to be in control. But accepting what is. Not just accepting, but embracing it and being grateful even if you don't see the forest through the trees. It's about everything and nothing at all. It's about saying hello, and saying goodbye. And it's also about daring to be your true self. The real you without facade or mask. Knowing and accepting that not everyone in the world sees things the way you do, and being ok with that. Believing that you won't be liked or loved by everyone, and for crying out loud, stop trying so damn hard. Just live outside your comfort zone for a few days and you will know what I'm talking about. Take a risk, take a chance, do something today that makes you feel uneasy. It will reward you!

Todays post... is about being you, loving you and striving to keep moving in the direction of what you believe in. Ok, that sounds too Stuart Smalley! :)

I'm off the love train now. It was fun, but now back to life. And it's meatball time! Yes, that's what I call living out of the box. Yum!
