lots of stuff

It has been a week since I have blogged and I wish it could be that I haven't had time due to margaritas and hot tubbing but it is far from that. Vacation Bible School took up every night I had this past week. And, my days were spent working two jobs, taking care of kids, working on the store's fundraiser, taking care of Toby and completely the cat board at the shelter for July. The cat board looks great! Christine had to finish it up for me since I could not stay. But...all of our favorites are now up! We decided it would be nice to get the staff and volunteer favorites noticed this time around. Here is what we came up with:

In checking out some of the inspirational pages on facebook this morning, been awake since 5:30am....I found this:
I realized that while I want to find inspiration, I do not take any time to myself to find it. The one night I spent in the hot tub, I did find inspiration in the clear skies and peacefullness of being alone. In that 15 minutes I got to thinking about how much I want to help others become more motivate to work towards their goals and dreams. My fear of life coaching was more or less the fact that I am still trying to piece my life together so how am I am supposed to help others? I reflected back on my conversation with the life coach a couple weeks ago. I did bring up this concern to her and she did say that we learn and grow as we are training. Now, I just have to make the time to research this so that I can make it happen.

I went onto Robin's page this morning and find this: "Don't feed your fears. If you want to feed something then feed your purpose. Feed your passion. Feed your creativity. Feed your inspiration. Feed your hopes. Feed your Soul. But please, please don't feed the fears. It won't take them but a minute to devour all of the goodness in your Life. Sorry fear, I got nothin' for you today. Or tomorrow..." She wrote that as if it was for me. I have always let the fears of situations get the best of me. So now I have to get rid of my fears, make time, and pursue my dreams. Right? Let's go!

What I am thankful for today:
