Changin' my song...

Mama's Losin' It


WRITER'S WORKSHOP PROMPT:
Who is a bird-brain? Think about all the birds you’ve seen–from songbirds to hunters. Compare one or more people you know to different types of birds in a piece of writing.

*******************
I don't even have a photo to go with this post because I am the bird-brain. My sister asked me why I haven't been blogging lately and I guess I'd have to say that it's because I've been feeling like a bird-brain and wanted to put a stop to it.

I want more in my life. I want to be the best me possible. Lukewarm ain't cuttin' it. I want better. So I've taken this past week to step away from as many life distractions as I could and I've tried to really dive into those things of greater value. I even replaced smutty reality television for uplifting programming while I sorted socks (sorting socks has been an important part of my self discovery this week as well. I want peace. And for me that means sorted socks) and I have to say that I love uplifting programming. There are some awesome people in this world.

So in this bird-brain comparison I guess I'd have to say that I am the ugly duckling, fighting desperately to become the beautiful swan that I was born to be.

Less than that is not an option.
Not anymore.

Hi, visiting from Mama Kat's. This is beautiful! It resonates so well with me as it's exactly what I'm going through right now. My husband is about to go on a work trip to Dubai for 3 weeks.

Your post inspires me to try and do better.

No reality TV?! Hope it's working for you the shows are heating up this week! Just teasing you, I wouldn't know what's happening on V b/c my sick kids are the only thing I've had time to tune in to. Next week though I'm vowing to catch up. On reality TV I mean. I'm too exhausted to use my mind on anything else.

It is nice sometimes to step back and review the important things in our lives. I too did that this weekend. Bye bye Grey's and Brothers and Sisters...sniffles...good knowing you. Now on to better things...like socks...ugh!!!

Nice post using this prompt. I had no idea what to write on this one so did the one on fear instead. I like The Biggest Loser--it's reality TV but I find it inspirational.
