ICY HOT and tears do not mix

I am learning, when chasing a dream you have to know your limitations. Sometimes a skill is just out of your range. Doesn't mean you can't acquire that said skill with hard work, it just takes time to get where you want to be.

It's 3am, I should be sleeping but instead I'm riddled with a sharp pain in my shoulders. A few days ago, I helped my parent's move out of my childhood home and into a condo. I should have helped my sister organize the new kitchen but nooo, I had to prove that I had the strength of Xena the warrior Princess. I'm paying the price of my ego.

On a more random note, check out these shoes from 1999 that I found in the small garage. I'm 6'2, all leg, so, you can tell how freaking tall I was in these babies. I wore my 3inch wooden platforms religiously.

Check out the cat, Bebe who's poking her head around the bend. S'up Kitty.


This year has been full of changes. My parents moving and my Uncle is really sick. Mom says he's probably going to pass away soon. I'm realizing that life never stays the same. The trick is to embrace the change. Roll with the punches, if you will.

And if those lessons are not learned, at least remember to chuck your ego out the door when seizing your dream.

*We are pleased to announce that a special someone will guest post on Monday. You won't want to miss that day.

Ooh, love the shoes. They look similar to ones I owned once upon a time... :) (And my SIL still wears hers, ha ha!)

A big change like that can be hard to swallow, but it can also end up being a good thing. That is definitely the only constant in life... change.

Great post. My husband asked me last night if I had regrets about a house move we didn't make and the more I thought about it, the more I realised that I don't 'do' regrets. Maybe it's my age but I've got to a point in my life where I can find the good in whatever situation I'm in. Change is only a challenge if we fight it.

I only recently found you and I've awarded you the 'One Lovely Blog Award' - http://fionajphillips.blogspot.com/2011/02/ive-won-award.html

Janiel Miller said...

Thanks you for the award, Fi!. I love that you don't do regrets. I'm working toward that. Regrets keep us in the past. NOW is where I want to be. And it makes for a better future.

Thanks for your thoughts.

What is life if not change. Rolling with the punches is the way to go, to be sure.

Those shoes are hot. I bet you look fabulous in those babies. I've always wished I could be tall.
