A taste of bizarre and a pinky promise.

 

I was in the middle of writing a post on my phone when I decided I was going to save it for the night and continue tomorrow.  What’s one more night, right?

Before exiting out of the Android WP app, I decided to take a peek at my stats.  I don’t really check too often, as I’ve not been posting much this year and recently I’ve had a good chunk of readers unsubscribe all together.  (Leaving me with a twinge of disappointment but really I can’t blame anyone as I’ve not been writing!)

Anyways… so I look at my stats…. and my mouth drops.

I AM CONFUSED…

Today I had the highest numbers of views EVER.  Higher than when I was posting every day even…. Huh?!?!  Wow.

And to make it even more perplexing it was a post written last October entitled:

Trick or Treat!!! Good things happen to those who wait!

(click the title if you’d like to take a read)

Not sure why that post was the gold mine today, but it brought more readers to my blog in one day than I’ve ever imagined strolling through.  There’s nothing in it that holds strong significance to the day today from what I wrote last year… I mean I did get some pretty awesome news the day I wrote that post… Some very much-needed awesome news after a stretch of stress and uncertainty.  But, I just don’t get why so many peeps made the trek to my blog today… to that post…

Don’t get me wrong… It’s not a bad post in my opinion; I mean it has pictures of 3 of the nephews in it so I mean, come on?  Of course I like it. BUT, in comparison to some of my other posts, I’m just plain out baffled at how or why this happened.

Nevertheless… I am grateful to all that stopped by today. So thanks!  And I sure hope you come back again.

Even more grateful to the friends who’ve stuck it out and have read from the very beginning… over TWO years now!  (That’s how bad I am this year… I didn’t even do a happy 2nd birthday blog post… 😦  )   I PROMISE… you won’t regret sticking with it.  I WILL BE BACK SOONER RATHER THAN LATER…

That’s a PROMISE !

If you don’t already subscribe, go on… do it already.

 

Loves to you my loves.

We all need a reminder

When you have one of “those” days… or weeks… or months… When you’ve had your fill of all that gets thrown your way in the day to day… When your nerves are shot and you’re stressed to the max… When chaos and nonsense surround you… For those moments in which you can’t seem to catch a fair shake… For those instances when you find yourself in a less than perfect situation… When you learn that someone isn’t such that the claimed to be… For when you discover that one’s words are just that and nothing more…

image

Only when we sit still and reflect and release will our souls be filled…. My reminder to you… in “those” moments, days, weeks or months…. sit still. Take in the peace that finds you. Let it fill and overflow. THEN, and only then can you truly be filled with more than ever thought possible.

As always,

Megan

What Would You Say?

If I told you the sky wasn’t blue and the grass wasn’t green? Would you believe such trivial things?

What would you say if true love never grew and the truth can’t be seen?

If I proposed your dreams are no more? Would you live your life the way it is, Just such?

And would you believe our paths never to touch?

What would you say? What would you do?

If faced with desires that just won’t come through?

Would you hold tight to the reigns? Put up a fight?

Let go of the chains, keeping your goals in sight?

Stand tall, take pride.

Taking each step in stride.

What would I say as you learn your life’s part?

Shut out the noise.

LISTEN.

Follow only your heart.

The Right Fit For Me?

Arise too early; wake too late

laughter and love, anger and hate

 

upfront and honest; lie and sneak

Open your eyes; don’t dare peek

 

too big; too small

too short; too tall

too strong; too weak

too bold, too meek

 

Much too heavy; far too light

remain calm and collected; put up a fight

 

use your words, bite your tongue

far too old; much too young

 

tell me all, I don’t want to know

come here fast; go away slow

 

adore the beginning; fathom the end

keep enemies close; lose touch with friends

 

nightmares linger, wishing dreams to stay

live to dream, dream to play

 

Through every second, the search continues … the right moments; the right choices, the right people, the right things.

 

Instead I’ll just treasure each moment of everyday

Finding the right fit me.

 

 

As always,

Megan

Procrastination Station

I always meet deadlines.  Honestly I think I thrive on deadlines. 

An uninformed bystander would be apt to think I have a systematic, methodical plan established, detailing a rigid schedule of individual tasks to be completed to successfully meet the deadline and overall end goal.

I’d like to say that is true.

But, my momma taught me not to lie.

Truth be told this girl is a procrastinator.  Always have been and more than likely always will be.
From cramming for exams in high school and college to drafting research manuscripts for grad school to pretty much all my crafty adventures to brushing my teeth just as I am about to be walking out the door to getting my car inspected during the last week of the month it’s due.  (OK, actually I take the last one back … my car was actually inspected a whole month early this year! Once in a life time occurance, I can assure you. )

Quite honestly, some of my aboslute BEST work has been completed just minutes before the time is to run out. Some of the best (and longest) papers I’ve ever written were products of literally no sleep for almost 40 hours and taken directly from the printer to be handed to a professor while the paper was still warm. A maid of honor speech that I stayed up until 3 AM writing the night before the wedding only to he thrown out and a new one uttered on the fly in cue with the DJ’s go ahead. Wedding invitations made through the wee hours of the morning on the day the bride is expecting them in her hands.

This blog post for example, has been nearly finished for quite some time… I just needed to finish it. A whole week later I am finally getting to it.

Don’t let this scare you from asking me to take on a project for you. Just ask any one… I’ll get the job done, one way or another in due time.

Sure, I’ll be stressed … more than likely I’ll get frustrated through the process.

Nonetheless, I enjoy the process. I suppose I enjoy working down to the wire… I enjoy finally seeing a product through to the end … celebrating it’s completion. Not now though…

I’ll celebrate later … after I brush my teeth just before I walk out the door. 😉
