Just before I found out I was preggers, I was training for my first marathon. I also had been listening to a new CD that had recently come out, Gwen Stefani's Love.Angel.Music.Baby.
The first track, "What You Waiting For," wasn't my favorite, but it's a catchy little tune. Especially now that I'm a SAHM with (sometimes) long days at home & not many adults to talk to.
I have so many things that I would like to do in the short time that I am here on this earth, and yet I have a difficult time fitting them into my already busy day. I need inspiration.
Gwen's extended video of this song speaks to this.
Do we wait for inspiration to strike or simply get out there and just do it?
Obviously she's subcribing to the latter, and it's a welcome philosophy to tune in to, at least for me, because I might not ever get to where I want to be if I don't just skip the feeling that I don't have enough time or that I need more (or less) of x, y, and z.
I'm just full of them.
Not that a music video is going to significantly jump-start my creative energies, but every little bit helps, right?
If anything, it does help me to not feel so lame in my laid-back way of getting stuff done. I'm not alone. I hope.
I love her mantra: Whatchoo Waitin' For?
Just go do it, you stupid ____!
to that I say yeah! ok! I will!
...if only Lizzy would sleep longer...
("ah-ah-ah! no excuses!" sayeth the little angel/devil on my shoulder)
ahhh, it's ever the balancing act for mothers, isn't it?
