     WOW!!...look at the time!!...Where am I?!...Is it still January?! ^_^ ... I woke up very late this morning...disoriented and stiff! And I made the mistake of turning on the television to see what was going on in the world...while my muscles and bones warm up. ^_^

     Yeah, I'm the type of old girl whose body has to come to life 'in quadraints'! LOL I envy my younger days, when I used to open my sleepy eyes in the morning and bound out of the bed to open window shades and do a few situps and squats! :-)) ...Eeeeee!...I know!...I can hardly believe it myself, that that bouncing, morning exercising, 'clueless-to-her-body's-future-doings' girl was ME!! ^_^

     Anyway!...I turn on the television and what do I get?!...'Say-It-Ain't-So-...Again' stories about Amanda Knox...and yet another cruise ship that had to come back to dock early because there was a ship wide viral outbreak!...A story about yet another huge building fire here in town!...What?! Justin Bieber back in Canada to answer some more 'bad boy' allegations?!...Reports of the Ice storm deaths from the storm that hit the south over the last couple of days!...Attacks and scares about the Russian Olympics?!..The local thermometer for today saying 6 degrees!!! YIKES!...and SUPERBOWL talk!...here, there and everywhere, Superbowl talk!!! ^_^

     Now, a smarter girl would tell the other body parts, the ones still on the trend to warm up, to just stop right there!...and go back to bed! ^_^ But not this girl!..."YOU GO, BODY PARTS!! :-) I got stuff to do, and I can't do it from a laying down position!!!" ^_^ Let's get this Thursday on the road!!!!!
     And YOU have a good day!...the day before the last day of January!! ^_^ ...Be the best you can be today!! ^_^

Be The Best You Can Be

I live my life every day,
trying to be the very best I can,
so that I am not affected
by the degrading words of man.

If "I" know who I am,
then I don't care what others think;
I don't end up in some bar,
trying to hide my pain with drink.

Oh Yes! THEY have opinions
on what THEY think you should do,
on how you wear your hair,
where you should go, also with who!

I nod and give a grin,
respecting what they want to say;
but it's 'my' thoughts that will count
at the end of the day.

It makes it so much easier
when I'm being the best I can;
Then I feel good about my choices;
I don't fear words from any man!
