"Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing. Use the pain as fuel, as a reminder of your strength."- August Wilson

I haven't been in the best of moods lately.  Definitely feeling the darker side of things.  When spring came early, I kept feeling like it was too good to be true.  Kept waiting for some cold days.  Somehow, we managed to have several weeks of wonderful weather.  BUT now we are in the doldrums again.  The temp went from somewhere in the 80s to 44 and rainy.  OH HOW I DISLIKE COLD RAIN.

Anyway, it isn't just the weather.  It's quite a few other things.  Mostly, indecision. 

Can't seem to decide what to wear, what to eat, what to do, or how to do it.  So this weekend I chose to stay in bed a lot.  Under the covers.  Sleepy, sleepy.  Lazy, lazy. get ready for MONDAY.  How shall I do that???
Well.... I'll probably have to sleep on it!

My goal for tomorrow is to get out and find some sunshine.  I know it's out there.  I just need to bring some in here.

let the work begin...

Savannah, GA

We recently went on a quick trip to Savannah, GA for a gymnastics meet.  I was so excited to go because I have never been and have dreamed of that place my whole life. For a while, after college, I thought I would go and live there.  I had never even been there and was sure it was the place for me.  So you can see why I needed to go there!  I had to see what all the daydreaming was about.  It did NOT disappoint.  That place is full of old southern magic. 
The south has it's hefty share of sad and tragic historical moments.  But there are also fantastic stories of great courage and endless compassion.

I love the south.
LOVE it with all my heart. 
And Savannah reminded me of the good stuff. 

and of course, this didn't hurt our fantastic experience either!!!.....
  medals on beam, floor, and allaround!! woooohoooo!!
