Wow! It’s been awhile since I posted my status report. I plead busyness AND some general sneaky lassitude. Monday’s hike and record, wiped me totally out. Due to weather and scheduling, I hadn’t been taking my daily walk for over a week, and man oh man, THAT hike was a killer diller! So yesterday, I lazed around before my singing lesson. I have really been struggling with my singing lately, as I have gotten better enough that I KNOW more things to be upset by when I don’t do them. And singing is art as well as technical, and your body doesn’t always cooperate. It’s like trying to be a ballerina wearing galoshes! Still onward. All singing practice helps my voice acting. I’m not convinced I will ever be a singer, as in, I on purpose sing for an audience, but right now, I’m struggling to sing even for myself. I’m so frustrated, and can’t seem to make the break through I need. But now’s the time to cut myself slack and just do it. With practice, it will come. I will just have to be frustrated until I’m not. That’s my process and Rome wasn’t built in a day.
My wonderful furry baby climbed IMMEDIATELY onto my lap while I was drinking my morning coffee. He purred and snuggled and was just
SO GOSH DARN GLAD to see me, it warmed my heart and inspired me to enjoy my body’s ability to feel and be and to be a conduit for sharing cat-love in the morning.
Later on, Mark and I will get back on the bike again. It has been a few weeks, so we have to build up our bike butts and endurance once more. Sometimes it feels like our lives are constant starting over. We need to clean the house again, we need to get back to regular exercise, we need to get back to our somewhat usual schedules. But that’s life, isn’t it? Everyday we make a choice of what’s most important that day. And the piper sometimes has to be paid. But overall, I think I’m happy, so I’m not too sorry to be back here again. We’ll get our bike bodies back soon enough, if we keep on keeping on
Have a great day BCs!
How about you?
Please feel free to comment on MY statuses or add YOUR OWN thoughts, feelings, challenges, rants and raves on these pages too. That was one of the original purposes of why I posted on FB. I thought BCs might like to share about THEIR days. So if you have thoughts and feelings you’d like to share with the group, go ahead and put them here with your comments.
*Daily statuses are not part of the blog’s email notification. When you enter your email under where it says SUBSCRIBE TO POSTS VIA EMAIL, you will be notified of regular blog posts and when podcast episodes are released. I didn’t want to clog your inbox with my daily statuses. However, the automatic publicize feature will inform you on my show FB page, my AdventureLaurie twitter account, google+ on its show page, and Tumblr.
PSS, some BCs have asked me the difference between blog postings and status pages. Blog postings are where I develop a complete topic triggered by my status thoughts. Status thoughts are how my day went, what’s on my agenda, and how my body feels today – and not much editing or thought goes into them. That’s why I don’t clog up your email with them. 🙂
