For What It's Worth

Sometimes unexpected good surprises are the best.
I found this waiting for me when I got back to work.
A gift from a group of sweet little women.
THIS is a million bucks to me!
I don't even want to combine it with my other money, because it is so special.

And I don't care what you say MasterCard...this is priceless!
....Because I felt my worth above and beyond what this is really worth.

Again! Again!!!

I am like a young child.
I hear a new song I like and like young children do when they have a song or book they like, I will  listen to it over and over and OVER again.
And I love doing that too!
No wonder they do that!
I do it so much so, that I think even my dog gets tired of hearing the same song again and if she could, she would roll her eyes while thinking, "Really?! Are you serious? Not again.....!"
But you know what?
It makes me happy.
It feels comforting inside.
No wonder children do that.
So the next time we think we can not read that book or listen to their favorite song yet one more time, try to remember that maybe it is bringing peace and comfort to their hearts and making it smile from the inside out!

Into the Swing Of Things

"Would you like to dance this fast two-step or we could swing like they are doing?", he asked me.  
I hesitated because I don't know how to dance either one.
He sensed my insecurity and so said it was OK, and suggested maybe dancing another song later, but as I observed them on the dance floor, I determined that I was just going to go for it, and try it anyway.

You see, up until this point in my life I have lived pretty reserved about things that are out of my comfort zone or that I don't know how to do, thus forfeiting many opportunities to learn and maybe even have some fun.
But as additional birthday years are accompanying me and I care more about the quality of happiness that I have in my life than of what others (or even myself) might be critically thinking, I have ventured out.

And guess what?
I had an absolute blast!!!
The poor guy.
We danced fast two-step and swing, or he did, and I got whipped and maneuvered around the dance floor, but I without question loved it!
I laughed hard and danced hard and burned up a few M&Ms I'd eaten, leaving me with unladylike sweat, but I would of replayed and repeated it numerous times, only not hesitating the next chance I got.

I learned something really important that night.
That I will not ultimately know how I am going to feel about something unless I try it. 
Unless I take a chance.
And at that point in my life, I can then decide if it is something I would like to add or deduct.
Because chances are good, if I open my heart and self to what the world may be presenting me, I might just swing into something I never knew I could love.
