We’re in day 5 of #bloglikecrazy…watch out now! Today’s prompt is to bring my loyal readers up to date on what I’m “currently” doing in my life. Since the Birmingham Girls Club conference is over, I am finally getting back into a routine.
Watching: I’ve fallen in love with Scandal, Nashville, and keep sticking by my old Tivo favorites of Big Bang Theory, and How I Met Your Mother. For some unknown reason I cannot seem to quit SNL though I have tried many times. I don’t know what it is. Also, my deep dark secret: On sick days, I curl up with the iPad and marathons of Dawson’s Creek and Felicity. HUSH!
Listening to: I’m a huge folkie at heart, so have been pulling out my Ellis Paul, Don Conoscenti, and Christopher Williams a lot lately. I also enjoy newer “alternative” stuff, so love Lorde, ZZ Ward, and CHVRCHES. When I want to dance, I grab some Avicii, Daft Punk, or anything on Power 102.1. I recently discovered that station when my SiriusXM subscription ran out and I can’t turn it off. It brings back every high school memory I ever had.
Planning: I’m not! I have been planning event after event for the last solid year. I quit. I’m done. I’m kidding. I have next week’s BGC Social coming up and we are hand painting and donating ornaments to First Light Women & Children’s Shelter for it. I’m also working on our holiday party that will be in December where I’m concocting a different twist on Dirty Santa. I will need to work on some more events for BGC for 2014, as well as start the Birmingham Dance Walks back up so that will be next. I’m also going to Savannah soon, but we’re not planning a lick of that trip. We’ll figure it out when we get there and do whatever we do! LIFE IS GRAND!
Thinking about: My life and what I want to do with it. I have all these resources..what do I want to do with them? How do I want to utilize the gifts and desires I have? An article I read today really made me stop and think. You can find it here. Let me know what you think.
Looking forward to: Everything. I don’t want to discount anything because something seems bigger or better. Everything is something to look forward to whether it’s for the celebration or the learning experience. I am very happy to have a mini vacation when we head to Savannah, but I am looking forward to waking up everyday and figuring out a little more about myself. And, more importantly, figuring out how I can help people more.
Reading: I don’t have a lot of time for reading, but do make time for my two small groups that I meet with weekly. We are currently reading “Unglued” and “Made to Crave” – both by Lysa TerKeurst. I need both books desperately. I need God more.
Making me happy: My small groups and girlfriends in there, my wonderful support system of friends and family that I can vent to, celebrate with, or cry on any day of the week. “Me” time is making me happy right now. That may sound (and seem) selfish, but I am an extrovert that requires copious amounts of introvert “me” time. It’s how I recharge and regroup. Thankfully, I’ve had lots of that lately so have been especially grateful (and productive)! I’ve been relaxing and recharging, but also doing some much-needed de-cluttering and cleaning out in the house. Yay!
What are you currently into?
Until tomorrow dear friends!
Find peace inside.
