Life Happens

Quote du Jour:
Life is what happens when you’re making other plans.

I was going to blog about this yesterday but I couldn’t find the words. Imagine that, eh? Ms. Long-Winded/Writer Girl couldn’t figure out how to communicate her feelings and thoughts.


It’s funny how life can take a strange turn and you wind up where you never thought. How you meet someone one day and end up finding a life-long friend or the love of your life. How you rediscover old friends when you thought all was lost. How you learn to forgive yourself for the mistakes you made long ago and even those you love best.

I was just thinking the other day (always a dangerous thing)…on the way home how things happen like that. Just when you think you’ve figured everything out then something else happens. Something or someone blindsides you. And it’s not necessarily a bad thing.

The last few months I’ve done a lot of thinking. A lot of internalization. Trying to rediscover myself, who I am, what I’ve become and where I’m going. Not sure what the answers are yet, but I’m figuring them out. Sort of. I do know I got back a friend I was missing and that’s important to me. I’m working on all the rest of the stuff.

Things have returned to normal (as I said yesterday) in Mik-World. It feels right. You know? Like all’s right with the hemisphere. I don’t feel nearly as out of balance as I have been. Part of that is accepting what’s done. Another part is learning to forgive. Not an easy thing when you’re a stubborn mule like me. Hey, it’s that Irish/Scottish/German/Cherokee blood in me. It all clashes.

Life. I guess that’s all it is. But I wonder… is this all there is to life? Isn’t there something more? Am I destined for anything else? Not trying to get cerebral here. Just thinking (typing?) out loud. I just want so much more out of life and sometimes I feel like I’m falling short. Running out of time. Like if I don’t hurry through everything, I’ll end up dead before I’ve really lived. Isn’t that morbid?

Okay… enough with the downer talk. Here’s some good news. You’ll be pleased to note the counter on the left side of the page … :drum roll please: HAS MOVED. Yes, folks, that’s right. I have finally finished chapter three of Nice Girls Do! TADA!

Now on to chapter four. Right?

Enough rambling. I’m off to work! WOO

I wish you all could be inside my head. The conversation is sparkling.
