So I might as well take the opportunity and do some ear education. :)

Some of my favorite time travelers...

Actually I love, am obsessed actually, with the book series and just this past year Starz made it into a television series. Here's the trailer for that. And here's all about the book series, which I love! 

My youngest daughter's favorite time traveler is Dr. Who!

Are things happening to you or are you making things happen?  The difference between the two has to do with belief in self and the willingness to simply ask or take a step forward. 
Today's #MakeItHappenMonday thoughts come straight from this article I ran across. 

I'm not good at making things happen, I am lazy - fearful - insecure and just wait for things to happen to me. Not ideal I know. In fact, if I want to live a life that just happens and invites me to participate every so often then my attitude is perfect! But when I hear myself complain about things happening to me then it's not so perfect after all is it?

You've probably said it before, and I'm sure you've had it said to you, "it doesn't hurt to ask." That's true if you are a person who makes things happen. But if you are a person - like me - who waits for things to happen then the asking seems out of line or fear inducing or something uncomfortable.

So what kind of person are you?…


I get accused of being stupid with some of the things I do. For example, one time I assembled these superhero packets...for adults. I put in a color-your-own mask, a power cuff (fine it was a bracelet but go with it), some motivating thoughts about what it takes to be a superhero, and a way to devise their own superhero name. I made the packets colorful and superhero-ish. I included a note about why they were getting the packet (hint - because they matter and they are superheroes). There were grumblings over how stupid I was to make the packets and hand them out. The thing is, I didn't just hand them out for the mere sake of being silly (although I don't think there is anything wrong with that) but I did it because I had a message I wanted the people to receive. A message I knew most of them needed to hear. I had a reason, I always have a reason.
Don't be shy about being thoughtful - even if you think it might come off as stupid. Just be thoughtful in some way, you won…


Let's talk about style. Not current fashion but those fashions we sported back in our younger days. You know those days - when we thought we looked G.O.O.D. *wink* 
In the spirit of the day here's a few photos of my stellar fashion sense back in my day. 
August 1983 - I LOVED this dress, I wore it a lot and I thought I was quite the cutie in it! 
I'm not just outing my fashion sense today but my brother's as well - look at his shorts and socks! Hahaha! And then there's me. I remember this outfit very well - I put a lot of thought into it. I was definately going through a pink phase - you can't see it here obviously but my entire bedroom was pink walls - as in bubblegum pink - along with white wallpaper that had pink hearts on it. This was in July 1986. 
Huh. I just noticed that with the posting of this picture and the two above there's a lot of pink. I must have liked it much more than I thought. To be fair this sweater I'm wearing in September of 1987…
