Daily Prompt: Chuckle

I’m not much of a laugher and don’t, generally, tend to find much that makes me laugh or chuckle (perhaps it is just my personality), but every once in a while I’ll see something (or something will happen) that will make me chuckle or shake my head in amusement.

As bad as it may sound often time, often times it is the stupid things that people do that make me not so much chuckle or laugh but shake my head in amusement wondering what in the world they’re thinking (or if they are in the first place).


Daily Post: Weekly Photo Challenge – The Road Taken

When I looked at this challenge, I realized I don’t have any “road” pictures, so I decided on a more “non-literal” approach to this challenge.  What I have isn’t an actual “road”, but a journey…each day with it’s ups and downs (like that of a mountain road.  Each day bringing new adventures, new things to learn, new things to see, and new people to meet.

Here is my “Road”

When I received my Mary Kay Pin, there was a feeling of both excitement and nervousness. I was excited about the opportunity to maybe make a little extra money to help my family and yet still be available for my family as needed. I was nervous about whether or not I’d be able to do this.

Something about wearing a name tag that makes you feel sort of official and business like.

Unfortunately my first name tag was lost (to this day we have no idea where it went to).  The good thing about getting a new name tag was that, due to completing the appropriate course and related quizzes,  I was able to show “Advance Color Consultant” on my name tag.

Doing Mary Kay Booth Events (when the opportunity aligns for me) can be exciting and fun.  You never know what you’ll get, but at the very least you meet new and interesting people.

Like a road, there can be many ups and downs when taking on a new adventure (and to me this is still new)…All the time, there are new things to learn.

With the help of my Mary Kay family,  I believe…..

(Me trying my “Team Leader’s” Red Jacket for size…  Some day this will be me).

Daily Prompt:  Hesitate

Today’s Prompt from DailyPost is Hesitate.

How often do we hesitate before trying something new, before taking the plunge into a new adventure.  How often do we hesitate afraid to take the leap without a parachute or a safety net.  As I once heard on a Million Dollar Message, sometimes you just have to take that leap without a parachute, without a visible safety net, and trust that you aren’t alone that there is a safety net you just can’t see, that there are people to catch you.  Easy to say? – Yes…  Easy to do? – Well that’s another story.

Daily Post:  Lukewarm

Few things are yuckier than lukewarm coffee…  I’d rather have my coffe hot (or at least very warm) or iced (or at least very cold), but lukewarm coffee that’s been sitting around for hours – Icckkk.

I find water to be the same for me. I’ll drink room temperature water but really much rather it be either on the hotter or colder side of lukewarm.

What are your thoughts on lukewarm drinks? Food? — On lukewarm anything?
