A question was asked on one of the forums that I belong to about each person's favorite quote. Somebody posted this one: "Do It Now...You can't build a reputation on what you're going to do".
I love love love it ! I even copied it into Word, changed it to a fabulous font, made it bigger, bolded it, printed it out and taped it to my desk at work.
When I woke up this morning I had a little anxiety and I picked up my depression digging shovel and started hauling that depression dirt. The thoughts were just running through my head "We have so much debt" "I will never get a better job with benefits because of my felony charge" "We are never going to sell the land and pay off that loan" "Our new renters are probably going to turn out to be deadbeats too" ... and on and on and on ... I think it all started when I woke up and realized that I had freaky dreams all night about the cast of Jersey Shore and about cleaning out Christmas decorations from my hoarding parents house. Freaky dreams ... the gift that keeps on giving.
After doing a little bit of web searching and feeling sorry for myself, I remembered the quote and it hit me. I can sit around on my butt all day long, eating and getting fatter OR I can use the day to start writing my new book, finish reading "Eat Pray Love" (I know I am a little late on that one ... let's blame the cast of Jersey Shore for that too), watch Chocolat (part of my torrid love affair with Netflix), work on some letters that I have been meaning to write, finish registering my new website domain, etc.
Picking up the depression hole digging shovel and filling that hole back in ... right now !
