Fridays are good. Fridays when you're dealing with some demon combo of the flu and a cold? Not so good. But, once I get over this I'll probably be fine until at least the end of the year. So, yea!
I have been a very poor searcher of new internet things this week. Isn't it interesting how something as simple as getting online can make you tired when you're sick?
I'm going back to my lounging and sneezing. Enjoy some music on this chilly Friday evening and dance for me, my lovelies.

I subscribe to a lot of email lists, most with the hope of learning new things to help me grow as a person or professional. Sometimes, though, it's good to have an old nugget of wisdom re-worded for me and brought to my attention again.
That's what I got today when I finally read a four day old email from Write To Done. It was a guest post written by a guy who started blogging to document the process of writing a novel.
He talked about something I have struggled with for many years: letting my dreams become so big that I can't act on them. The best advice he gave is no less true for being well-known: Decision=Action. If you can make a decision, even a small one, regarding your dream of success/freedom/a better, happier life, it will lead to action. And action leads to (eventually) living your dream realistically. That means living your dream with all the highs and lows and plateaus that were likely stymieing you in the first place.
If dream paralysis has a hold on you, read How To Dream Without Making Dreams Your Master. It just might make a sense of ease wash over you.

I kinda like a song by a Jonas Brother. I...I don't know what's happening to me over here.
On the other hand, I also like this cool, odd little song featuring my new fave, Kimbra. So, I must not be going completely insane. Right?
