I’m Shaking!

I just posted this to facebook. It’s my 25th video and I promised myself I would be brave. If I knew how to change that “thumbnail,” I would.

But I don’t, so there I am in all my glory. Looks like…….oh, never mind.

I watched this one after I recorded it, and there were definitely things that I could have done better.

But I know that if I wait to get it perfect, I’ll never post or record another video. So, I just let ‘er rip!!!

YAY!! I DID IT!!! (I’m doing backhandsprings in my mind).

(Also, I read a book that says that you shouldn’t use too many exclamation points. I forget why.

SO WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m just not going to listen to that advice!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Got it?!!!!!!!!!!

OK, I’ll stop!

Another thing. I finally figured out how I want my book cover. Once I stopped saying:

  • “this is not my thing”
  • I’m no good at this
  • I’m helpless and powerless
  • I hate being dependent on people

I started coming up with ideas. And got in touch with what the book was REALLY about. Even though it’s called “The Second Piece of French Toast,” it’s not about freaking french toast so why have a picture of it on the cover? I started getting ideas and getting excited about it once I took the lid off my creativity. It is so cool.

Plus, I remembered that I used to love to do lettering with shading and coloring, AND, wait for it……..I used to draw turtles. Yes, turtles, ladies and gentlemen. I would color in their backs with colorful shapes and patterns. I never did anything with them, it was just relaxing. So, contrary to what I have said, I do “do art.” I wasn’t born without artistic creativity. I just focused more on music and sports and cheerleading and fun growing up.

[Oh, I just had a moment. I decided my art was stupid when I made a couple of very embarrassing items for my dad. I was too young to know they were perverted/stupid. Wow. That’s where I stopped. I decided I was an idiot with art. Interesting – just an aside].

I also write poems of acknowledgment. I wrote the lyrics for a new song. A friend is putting it to music. I am so excited to hear what she comes up with.

And, I want to have a talk show where I interview people and they tell their stories and they get in touch with their greatness. Just saying……….That would be a freaking blast. I created that over the weekend.

I am still shaking…………..I am just going to forget I pressed the send button on facebook and get on with my day. Thanks for distracting me.

Thanks for listening, for all your support, and for tuning in.

Have a great day!!!
