It has finally arrived. I want to watch it sooooo bad. I did decide I would start from Season 1 snd rewatch the Story. There have been such long gaps of time between the last two seasons I had forgotten some of the details. So I am loving seeing it again. Shocked at how rich the story is even on a second pass. I really believe Season 4 will be much more memorable because I took the time. If you have not experienced the 12 Monkeys do yourself a favor. Make some popcorn 🍿 and grab a soda. Sit down and immerse yourself into one of the greatest stories ever told.
“You are walking through a red forest, the grass is tall.” Monkeys!
Updated 7/8/18 Season 4 was awesome! Absolutely brilliant!
One blessing of pain and suffering is the Gift of Clarity. I am involved in a lot of really cool things I enjoy. I realized however that my schedule has really worn me down. My immunity right now is almost non-existent. I am usually high energy, but over the last several months, I have found myself having to psych myself up for things. Just not the me I am used to.
I am going to make some changes in my life. I tried simplifying over the last two years but ended up just replacing busy with newer busy. So after conversations with my closest friends, who independently gave the same advice, I am going to focus on things that only I can do. There are capable and trustworthy people in our lives that are willing to do more. We can do that. I have never been afraid of change but often have been slow to it. Change for me typically has occurred after its past due. This experience has been a huge wake up call.
One advantage of empowering others is the growth and opportunities that benefit all. Personal growth is a very real thing. People find the greatest joy in life when they can make decisions, when they are trusted and most importantly when there is the risk of failure. I have always believed in bringing good people together and great things happen. Now we are going to act on that belief and level up. I am very excited to see what the future brings. I need a little more of this…
…to do more of what I really care about.
I have experienced something this week that no one wants to go through. Shingles. What exactly is Shingles you may ask. If you ever have had chicken pox the virus stays with you forever. Shingles is from the same virus and typically occurs after age 50. It can occur at any age though.
Suffering. Shingles is a rash and sores that cause your nerves to light up. It is itchy and painful. Debilitating is a good description. Everything hurts. Moving your arm, clothes, being touched, breathing in my case. I have been somewhat lucky in using dōTERRA essential oils to find some relief. It hasn’t spread nor am I dealing with a lot of sores. It’s mostly been the pain. Supposedly it clears up after two weeks. I am totally ready. I have a pretty high tolerance for pain and this has kicked my tail.
Remember that game you played as a kid. Where someone would trace letters on your back with their finger. Spelling out things like the boy they liked. Yeah don’t do that. It leaves a trail of pain.
I love this pic. I found it today scrolling on Facebook. It just spoke to me how things sometimes do. This is kind of like life. There is a road we all travel. Some complain the trip takes too long, some that the skies look dark ahead. Some don’t even see the rainbow because they are too focused on the distractions the Journey inevitably puts in our path. All I see is that rainbow. Maybe I am unique in this, although I don’t think so. I am definitely the one that pulls over, gets everyone out and takes the pic.
Pause to enjoy the miracle and share it with the world. Don’t be in too much of a hurry to miss the beauty of life. We are constantly fed a barrage of ugliness that comes no matter what. The irony is we often have to make time for the beauty being offered to us. Step out of the current and enjoy the calmness of the pools. It may take time to break habits but the views and experiences are so much richer.
