I'm curious on what my legacy would be. The New Year brings reflecting and thinking of legacy. I hope it would be a positive one. I'd like to think people have been impacted in a good way by knowing me. Makes you think. I guess I have my own "George Bailey" moments. My support system is a good reminder that I've done well. Something to think about.

Interesting conversation on Facebook got me thinking of annoying phrases and buttons to push. Something about our human desire to like pushing the envelope or see how far things can go. I guess to gauge things? Makes for quite a colorful discussion. We don't always act on the buttons. We even moderate our behavior according to these buttons. But these buttons. ..sometimes even triggers have an interesting way to sneak in. It's a matter of how to react. And how much to let in. It's about knowing that boundaries and buttons and triggers and pushing envelopes helps to learn about one another.

You live for those moments that melt your heart. That stop you in your tracks. That make you feel fuzzy. Or put a smile on your face....or make you laugh. Sometimes. ..even make you cry. I cherish them. They happen daily. It's about being open and willing to see the big moments in little things. To see how big moments come from little moments that flow continuously.

I look at both of them and just smile. 7 years I've been a constant in their life. I'm an advisor. It feels amazing. I feel needed. Step parenting is not an easy role. And sometimes people might not see you as a "true" parent. That doesn't matter. What matters is them. That I've watched them evolve into these independent, creative, and intelligent individuals. ...and I had a hand in that. My influence is subtle and purposeful. And it will get more beautiful to watch.

I got a 97 on my test! I'm proud of myself. I haven't always test well in life. So it's a big deal how well I'm retaining the information. The school shot a commercial. Unless they seriously edit...I will be in it! Something different in a day. I also got some feedback from John, my instructor that boosted my confidence. And I put my partner to sleep. I always take that as a good thing.

After the day on Tuesday I was a little nervous about Today. My friend ( and classmate) Kaitlyn put me at ease. I did great according to her. I have to work on my transition. It's like I overthink it. Susan says...which I like " When in doubt, rake it out". Love it. I gave same amount of pressure. She made me twitch. She's a natural. So good day...it was... ( my yoda moment) Now....for Zumba!

It's fun and interesting to see how couples communicate with each. Each couple that's in my near near circle communicates differently. This could be upbringing, personal experiences, or any different type of variables. But I love the language they speak. Their own language. It's neither wrong or right because I'm not fluent. I'm not any part of the language. And is what I love...observing. ...observing the different ways to say...I love you...I'm thinking of you....you mean so much to me...you're important in my life. And if you think about. ..sometimes this dance can translate and give similar but different moves for friendship. It's like friendship cues. I love watching life unfold. I love watching moving art....life that unfolds and creates experiences. Moving art....that ruly moves you.

It helps you gauge a situation. It helps you identify or clarify things without drama. Positive feedback or even conatructive criticism helps you improve. If the person telling you has good intentions. ...and if you're open to improving. .the experience can be helpful and even gratifying. The feedback is genuine. The feedback is meant for sincere intention. You can still tell a person about their flaws but you also give suggestion on making it better. You contribute to the solution. And always remember. ...feedback is an opinion. In the end you decide going forward how to proceed. Just my take.

I was having a blank on inspiration. And that's what my classmate came up with. You have trials. You have difficulties. You give yourself time to deal w it. That's healthy. And then you pick yourself up. You keep on keeping on. That's how people separate themselves. My take. Noone is devoid of this situation. People just don't usually talk about. They keep on keeping on.

Some days I don't have sn inspiration or any one thought that pops out to be written about. It was nice to sleep in a few hours. Course...power napping is awesome. ...in class. When you're on the receiving end of a massage that power nap does wonders. The day is calling. Time for some yoga.

Now that I'm more established in my routine I feel a certain groove. Tuesday and Thursday are my busiest days.I've learned so much in the past couple of days. I take notes like crazy. I'm still the note queen. There calls for some more studting tonight. The review helped to know what will be on the test. Anyways, it's been great. Zumba is soon. Something different. The intersection where I turn left...there was an accident. I hope everyone is ok.

This weekend had snippets of it. Normally, I can brush it off. This weekend. .not so much. First...a friend had a foot in mouth moment. Those are fun. Misunderstanding but got me somewhat perturbed. Then dealing w the defensive driving. Then a friend of a friend went off on FB. That was the least of the negative but since I was among the people she was complaining about it was still a negative feeling. Fortunately, she unfriended me. I didn't sleep well. Just a grumble grumble so to speak. So here's me leaving that behind to focus. School is important to me. Noone ever said going after your dreams was easy. Let's do this!
