Sing a Little Song…Or…Not.

13 Jan

Can I share a confession with you?

I dream to sing in a choir.  Like, when I’m at church, I picture myself up there.  I love to sing.  I love to sing praise music.

However – I have amazingly low self-esteem.  I’m shy.  And I’m crazy self-conscious about EVERYTHING.  My voice, my body, my face, my freckles, my everything!  Now, I know that God made me and he doesn’t make any junk…..sure!  However, the feeling I get when I think of putting myself out there like that?  SCARY!!!!

Will you pray with me that God can use this self-conscious person to sing his praises before I do it in Heaven?  I am quite sure I will there…but I’d kinda like to do it BEFORE then!

Who’s Driving?

26 Nov

Had a little conversation at the office about this last week and it’s worth capturing.  I am of the opinion that much of the “spirit” of a relationship between a man and a woman is driven by the woman.  I’m not totally saying that the woman is the MOST POWERFUL of the two…but I am saying that if a woman has a negative/bad attitude, the man seems to respond something like this –  obviously mad, irritated, defensive, etc.  On the contrary, if the woman is mild mannered or positive, the man usually responds in kind.  It doesn’t seem to work the other way around.  If the MAN is one way or another, it doesn’t always have the same effects on the woman.  Usually a woman will try to make the mood better if it’s bad!

This is based on my personal experience of friends and such…I’m sure it doesn’t always work out like this!

What do YOU think?

A bit of bubbly…

7 Nov

As I’m attempting to complete the NaBloPoMo blogging party…I’m using some prompts to keep things fresh around here and not just write about MONO!  🙂  Today’s is about compliments…

So I tweeted the other day about someone calling me bubbly….I seriously think it’s my favorite compliment.  Who wants to be known as “Debbie Downer” or “Negative Nancy”?  (No disrespect to any Debbie or Nancy, mind you, I know some of them in particular and they are fine people.)  When I met my husband and he emailed a sweet note after our date…he included that he loved that I was “bubbly” and “energetic”.  My performance reviews at work have noted the “bubbly” aspect.  I.Love.That.  I love that most people know that I’m the positive, smiling, happy chick in most situations.  I do search for the good in things.  I hope for the best in others.  I enjoy making others smile and try to cheer anyone up who doesn’t appear to be having a good day.  Sometimes I wish I were that friend that always knew what to say.  I wish I had the words to make everyone feel better or smarter or let them KNOW that I’m listening.  But, mostly, I end up joking around and then…so do they.  So I feel like this is a pretty good tactic and I’m going with it.  When I looked up the definition…the one word I LOVED that it used….SPARKLING.  I am sure it was referring to the drink sort of bubbly…but I’ll take it.  It is one thing I own.  I have been given compliments before that felt insincere or that I felt I wasn’t worthy of…but, bubbly….I can rock that one.  🙂
