Going Somewhere!!

My HOROSCOPE FOR TODAY January 28th 2009
Leo (7/23-8/22)
Where you are going with someone isn't clear, but it's clear you are going together.

It must be true because it was in my Yahoo horoscope!
Actually, it really is true. I don't know where I'm going. I usually never do. But I do know, that I'm getting there with more than just one person.
I'm on a journey everyday with every person I know and don't know. People I notice on the street and those who walk by my office window. I'm in their journey too, and no one knows where we are all going.
And that's really cool.

Good and Good

Is it my new habit of a daily double espresso? Good sleep? Stars aligned just right? Don’t know. But for some reason I’ve been feeling mighty good. Was it that I had a good audition on Friday or that I saw lot’s of acting friends at a mixer Friday evening? Could it have been that on Saturday, my kid made his first ever lay up shot at his basketball game (and the crowd goes wild!!), or that I went to a Gala on Saturday night and had a really fun time? Could it be that I've gotten off my tush and will soon start a script writing workshop and a painting class? Maybe it’s that I’ve gotten a few things done around the house that have been bothering me for months. Perhaps it’s that Bush is finally out and after 8 long depressing years, Americans can finally be proud of our president.

President Obama.

A child feeling great about himself.
Proud parents.
Seeing friends, getting stuff done, writing and painting.

It all adds up to feeling mighty good!

What happened?? I was working on nothing really important, when I felt the strongest pull to travel. An overwhelming desire to strike out into the "great wide open." It completely took me by surprise. This is not some pack up the minivan and let's hit the beach. I'm talking about grabbing the backpack and hiking through Europe, exploring small islands off of Thailand, bumping along in a gold and green rickshaw through New Delhi.
Whoa. Not just yet momma, a few more years yet.

Damn, damn, damn this procrastination!!! It curses me. What is the cure for this terrible waste of time. Well, not a total waste. I have really enjoyed reading the paper, catching up on emails, yakkity yakking on the phone, daydreaming, making chamomile tea with honey, more daydreaming, looking out the window at the beautiful oaks that canopy my office, appreciating the beauty of the day and my life...

So does this means that procrastinating is the art of active avoidance? That procrastination equals living in the moment?

Holy cow - Enlightenment!

And to think I wasn't getting anything done. Silly me!

The holidays are over, the kids go back to school tomorrow and I'm gearing up for the new year. On my to do list is to get the rough draft put together on a feature I'm writing, work on my film editing skills (or lack there of), get back into the gym ( I would like to go skiing and I'd like to get into shape before hitting the slopes. Otherwise the slopes will throw me down the mountain like a rag doll.), get going on the acting class that will really challenge me, do a decent spring cleaning, be a great friend, do more meditation, practice more understanding and forgiveness in others and myself, be there to help my children grow into well adjusted adults, be a better sister and daughter, help the homeless, work on world peace and end worked hunger. O.K. maybe a little too over the top toward the end of my list. But wouldn't it be pretty cool if it all worked out?
Happy New Year!!
