Monday Muse.

I've been having all these conversations with myself lately - so here, enjoy the depths of my mind.

  • Why aren't people open to making new friends? I'm baffled by this. I've met people here online and in person at various places and thought to myself - they are pretty cool! I'd like to get to know them better and become friends! But you can tell they are shut off totally from opening up to new people. Not Interested in the least. I really don't understand that at all.
  • A dear friend is struggling with having to put her pet down.  As you very well know if you read here much, this was one of the toughest things I've ever had to do. So my heart is aching for her right now.
  • Another friend struggled with coworkers who were ALWAYS late everyday. And here she is working her full eight hours while someone else is stealing time off the clock. We all have worked with this type of person at one time or another. She is very wise, she finally realized she agreed to a certain wage for a certain amount of time. Her responsiblity was to keep up her end of the bargin. This other coworker wasn't her responsibility.  AMEN. What a wise person my friend is, right? It's hard to do, but the coworker will have to live with her decisions and we must live with ours.
  • Why can't I get motivated to lose weight? I want to. I need to. But I have not managed to push myself off the couch yet.  Hmm... I've got to find that thing that encourages me to MOVE IT! Stay tuned on this.
So yeah, I think that's where my mind is at from this weekend.  I did some more work on Pressed Clovers but for some reason I wasn't happy with my work.  I ended up putting it down and will come back to it later this week.  Pressed Clovers is very important to me so I want to feel good about what I'm putting out there.  So putting it down for a day was just a better move, I think. 

Ok ya'll, go have a great week! :)


  1. It is hard to watch as others "break the rules" when we are trying hard to abide by them. Praying for grace for your friend. Motivation left me long ago, but I MAKE myself go run. It's not fun yet I feel better about myself when I'm doing something. Hope you feel that motivation soon.

  2. You have to be in the right frame of mind to do creative work, so good choice to let it rest until you're ready. The only way I can exercise is using DVD's at home.

  3. I hate it when people are unfriendly. Just makes no sense to me.

    I feel you on the lack of motivation thing. I ate pizza and wings and skipped the gym last night. Fail!!


  4. That made me think of the new people I met recently. It's definitely interesting to see how some are so open to getting to know others and some are fine with the people they know and don't really care to form relationships with new people.

    I know what you mean about being happy with your work. Sometimes you just have to step back and sometimes we're just too hard on ourselves so we have to step back - I'm very guilty of that.
