Boss It Up

Sometimes we're given the chance for greatness, sometimes it can't be explained and sometimes it comes from the most unexpected places.
My life is far from perfect, far from where I want it to be. At the same time, there are things about my life that I wouldn't change for the world.
One of the biggest lessons I've learned (and am still learning) is that when something falls apart there is a reason. Sometimes something has to fall apart in our life so that something great can come together. There are no explanations because they're not needed. Why question greatness?
Is everything going right in my life? No, not everything is how I want. Am I happy? I couldn't be happier - I am a lucky girl. ;-) When I start doubting myself or my dreams I have a constant reminder than I can accomplish them and that I am amazing. Not everyone has that, so for that I am extremely grateful and thankful. Like I said, I'm a lucky girl.
I have dreams and I have hopes. Will these happen when I want them to? Probably not. Another thing I'm learning is patience, such a hard thing to grasp. I'm learning that my timing isn't always God's timing. I plan to position myself for greatness, to put myself right in its path so that it won't pass me by.
Reach for your goals, your dreams, your ambitions. They'll come calling when you least expect it. Remember, don't question greatness, position yourself for it, except it, love it, and own it! You are amazing and you deserve this!

How does that brain work?!

So I come home from my first job with every intention of sitting down and finishing up my speech so I could post it for school today. I have about two hours between jobs so I figured that would give me time to organize my thoughts and record the speech on my phone, then go to the coffee shop and upload it.
I came into my room and sat down to start writing and I happened to glance down at the floor and thought, "Holy crap, I need to vacuum!" So I went and got the vacuum, but the canister was full. I go into the kitchen to empty the canister into the trash and there's no trash bag!
I go to the laundry room to grab a trash bag and notice that I didn't clean out the cat litter like I'd planned so I emptied it and gave them fresh. Now I have an empty bag of trash and a full bag. Empty bag goes into the trash can and the full bag goes outside to the big trash can.
While I'm outside I notice the dog toys all over the yard so I quickly pick them up and throw a few with the boys (who are pathetic when it comes to catch!). Then it hits me that my actual speech is in the car so I go to grab it out and see the trash in my car. Since I'm right by the big trash can I pull out all the trash from my car.
Back inside I finally start vacuuming the floors. As I go to take the vacuum back I notice all the cat fur in the living room so I decide I need to sweep the non-carpeted floors.
After all this I finally sat down to finish up my speech. Three whole minutes on "Psychological Abuse". I guarantee you I took 50 different videos. And it's still not uploaded. Lovely!
Can you say a.d.d.?!
