The Time is Now

This past weekend I had an eye opening experience.  I’m not 33 going on 34 like I was thinking.  I’m 3.5 months away from 35!  I know a age is only a number and you are only as old as you feel. Well this year I’m starting to feel like ninety. My knee hurts half the time and my foot hurts the other half. Okay, I’m getting off track now, time to get back to the point.

I’m closer to 35 than I am to 34 and I have nothing to show for it. I have no love of my life, no family of my own, and my job is only okay. The biggest excitement in my week is getting to watch all the hunky men on my crime and medical shows. I keep talking about making changes but it hit me this past weekend it’s time to end all the talking and start doing. I can talk till I’m blue in the face but if I don’t start doing I’ll be blue and need medical help and the ones in real life are nothing like the ones on tv. Trust me I work in a hospital and we have no McDreamy or McSteamy.

I’m almost 35 years old it is time for my passion to be at the forefront of my life. It doesn’t look like the white horse is showing up anytime soon and if it does with my luck it will empty. The prince will have fallen off the horse. And then I’ll have to go rescue him instead of him rescuing me.

My passion is my writing and it’s time to make my writing known. And maybe that’s by writing a book. After all part of me wants to. Hopefully next year at this time when 36 is staring me in the face I’ll have more to show for myself.

Travel Month Extended

September where did you go? All my ideas for travel month racing around in my head but hitting the wall before I could cross the finish line (get them formed into blog posts). With that being said I have decided to extend travel month into October with one week being Outer Banks Week.

Heartland TV Show

If you have never heard of or seen the Canadian TV Show Heartland, look for it on Netflix or Prime. It is a really good show. My mom has taken to binge watching it in her retirement. We are both looking forward for the newest season to hit in December on UP but hopefully before that on Netflix or Prime. If you are a fan of the Good Witch Movies on Hallmark there will be a familiar face on the series (Chris Potter). It is the kind of show the whole family can watch.

Southern Belle Reads: Books I Would Like to See as Movies

Maybe it was because I watched Fifty Shades Freed last night or maybe because I really like the idea of Passionflix making books into movies.
