BOREDOM IS A GIFT
'Siyo or Osiyo [Hello in Cherokee]
Read the last Daily Message titled, Some Things Never Change
First, my mailing list is not functioning right now. I'm certain it will be fixed soon. Yeppity-do-dah . . . guess what song was this morning's Musical DLG ™ (Download from God ™ ); none other than Bobby McFerrin's, "Don't Worry Be Happy." Folks, I realize that I have been out-of-pocket and it appears as though I have taken a wrong turn and fallen off the planet but I assure you that Life in my world is really just fine and dandy. I've lost 25 lbs. on my P90X program and I still have 10 lbs. to go. I look in the mirror and hardly recognize myself sometimes. I've even gone on a few sizzling dates. oooh la la Oh, I assure you, I'm doing great on this end of the computer. (winkity winky wink) After spending 8 tireless years (day and night) working on this website and ignoring myself, I finally have my body and mojo back. Good for me and I think I deserve it. More importantly, I owe it to myself because I should be an example of health with my North Node Virgo. ooh-rah!
For those of you who come to my website only for horoscopes, then it may appear as though I'm just not updating the website or doing anything significant in my life. I think anything I choose to do with my time is important but I also realize that I cannot do everything in one day and sometimes . . sometimes . . for a brief period of time, something may suffer and it will be okay. In this case, it was horoscopes. This serves as the perfect time to remind my visitors that I am much more than an astrologer and I do have other things on my plate besides astrology. I am interested and engaged in more things than just astrology. This website is about 70 percent health and 30 percent astrology. So you see, there is much more to ol' Dr. Standley than meets the astrological pages of this website.
I'll be honest and tell you that 'boredom is the gift' that takes me down so many different paths. That's why I have so many projects that I juggle on a daily basis. I am a Gemini and we Gemini's have to have more than one thing to occupy our mind, hands and time. Remember several months ago I told you about an opportunity I was given to create a full line of bath salts for a resort chain? Well, that project is shaping up nicely and I had to give it some face time. I also have several workshops and speaking engagements lined up throughout this summer that I had to give my attention to, which involves creating handouts and new Power Point presentations. Not to mention, working through what I will say in the amount of time I am given to say it. Folks, if I have EVER talked to you on the phone, then you know that once you get me on the phone, I'll talk your dang ear off. I'm a Gemini, the master communicator of the zodiac. (winky wink) And then a couple of weeks ago I needed extra time to make additions and changes to this website.
This is also the perfect time to remind my visitors that more often than not, this can be an incredibly thankless job but I do it anyway. I get up and do it all over again the next day. Some people thank me and others will fire off an e-mail and want to know where their horoscope is today and let me know that I'm not doing enough for them for free. I'm chuckling right now and being very sarcastic because my personality is like that! Heck, I may never hear from a visitor except in the moment I don't update the site and they don't get their horoscope, then they can't e-mail me fast enough to let me know how lazy or rotten that is. "WHATEVER!" Injecting sarcasm again. Never mind the times when I do have the site updated or horoscopes posted early. You guessed it, I've never heard from those same people during those times. Oh well, one thing I do know is their attitude probably impacts other areas of their Life as well and that's a bummer! If you've been coming to this website long enough, then you know complaining, nagging, whining and critical abrasive people severely rub me the wrong way, especially when I'm creating something for them for free, in my free time. I don't need to make money off every dang thing that I speak, type or touch but I certainly don't need anyone yanking my chain over what I do for them in my free time. Know what I mean jellybean. Don't worry, be happy folks . . no visitor(s) bring me down. I'm a happy silly gal and just fine. I'm also grateful that I do have a website to speak my Gemini mind.
One thing the whining does for me is remind me what a truly wonderful and free-spirited life I live. Life on my end of the computer is just fantabulous. While I realize that my gift of boredom can throw others off their track, I have to remain true to myself and embrace my gift of boredom because it truly makes me a unique and whacked out individual. I Love that about me even if others don't.
Now I'm going to run along and settle you back into a horoscope routine that will feel better than the past couple of weeks. Please note, there is a 'donate' link on this site in the top right corner if you feel compelled to show your appreciation for the information and work I have provided to you thus far. Folks, I have no intention of running off and giving up on this site. Remember, it's just me here. Just little ol' me.
"Now get out there, go place yourself UP!
and practice being you."
