Brighten up my day why dontcha?

I just got off the phone with my father; wishing him a Happy Birthday from many miles away. It's amazing how that man has the ability to brighten my spirits just by hearing his voice! He's always so cheery and easy going; I pray I get to that point in my life; sooner rather than later.

It really just amazes me; so I decided to blog about it. That.Is.All.

Until next time, be the one who brightens someone's day!

Another bright idea...

Today, I pressed the snooze button twice! I was just plain dragging. It's getting colder and naturally I am going into hibernation mode. I went to bed at 10: 00 pm, so there's no excuse of not enough sleep. Then, I went outside to find that it is raining! Aha! That explains this sluggish feeling. So, I call my teacher to tell her that I will be a few minutes late; because I literally sat on the bed looking at the wall for an extra 10 mins--at nothing. I suspected I had no classes today, because it's mid-term time. Sure enough, I get to school and my co-teacher quickly says "Oh, so (with the arms crossed over each other) classes today; testing. "Oh, no problem." I reply; thinking in my mind--this definitely should have been a day off.

Oh well. I can't complain. I'm getting some things done that I needed to attend to, so it's all good.

So, when I am left alone to think; I always come up with bright ideas. Problem is, it's very rare that I ever act on them. <insert "however" motion here> I'm getting to the point in my life that I see and believe faith without works is dead. So, I've decided to try and do something drastic--different---dramatic! I won't let you in on it just yet, but just know...I'm going to try.

There's no reason for me to be confused in a world where there's so many opportunities. Yeah, the US economy is suffering right now--but that's the beauty of NOT having to be in the US. There are days I wish I had the 'American Dream;' a house, white picket fence, a husband that loves me, and at least one child. But as soon as that thought passes, an even more vivid picture comes to mind. Foreclosure--no fence--marital problems--a child I can't afford. Not saying that it has to be that extreme...but it could be--and I'm not taking that chance.

There's no sure way to ever be prepared for the unexpected. However, I'm looking forward to seeing how this "bright idea" pans out. If favorably, I will say this, my questions about my next step in life will be answered.

I'm actually excited about my upcoming weekend in the house. I need time to get this plan started. Until next time, find something extreme to do, even if on a small scale! Wear red panties under a white dress (yes, you can now wear winter white after Labor Day ^0^), shave your beard off after having it for 20 years, or if you wanna be REALLY dramatic, love others as you want them to love you. Yeah, I know--that's random. But love can get in "anywhere" in my life. :-)

Sigh and SMH

Well, it's been over a year since I've been in Korea...and I must say; it has been well worth the ride. But now that the ride is over, should I get on again, or make my rounds of this amusement park i.e. "the rest of the world?"

I'm very undecided at this point. Part of me wants to go home, because I miss my people. But is missing my family and friends enough to go  back home to no job, or instability? I don't think so. Sometimes, you have to face the facts and make the hard choices to get ahead in life.

As I'm typing this, I'm crying on the inside...gone are the days where I can make easy decisions that have no "real" effect on my future. Here are the days of setting myself up to be where I want to be in life. I just had a birthday and along with age came wisdom.

So, please pray that I make the decision that will only enhance my future. That I'm in the right place at the right time. That I don't fall victim to the "I want" mentality once again, and follow the "I need to" instead.

Until next time, try hard to make decisions with every possible outcome in mind. "You're never too old to be what you might have been" ~George Eliott...I'm living proof of that.
