Right now I think I could sit and eat all day and be pretty happy. but hey, I wrote 700 words today (after a pretty bad meltdown). It's a start. Just have to do it tomorrow and the day after that, and the day after that...

Found a song that is an inspiration for me. I need to make it my motto. I need to change too, need to get the stress levels down and make the changes.

She dreams of where she's never been,
Her story starts where it should end.
And she keeps a bible close and folds the pages
Down she needs the most.

Her faded walls are closing in,
So in her head, she leaves again
And they've painted ceilings blue and green,
And brilliant colors she's never seen.

Chorus:
And nothing ever happens if you stay in your room,
Nothing ever happens if you leave the party too soon!
Never be a winner if you're not in the game,
Nothing ever happens if you always play it safe!
Make a little space
And get out of your own way!

A ticket out sits on her shelf
And gathers dust upon itself
'cause chasing chance is for the brave
Well maybe soon she'll feel that way.

Chorus:
Nothing ever happens if you stay in your room,
Nothing ever happens if you leave the party too soon!
Nothing ever happens if you don't get hurt,
Nothing ever happens if you never get dirty!
Make a little space
And go on, get out, go on get out!

Leave what you don't need -
You’re free, and the pieces will fall into place
You and you only, who can make a little space,
And get out of your own way.

She sees the sunlight through the cracks,
It’s only her who holds her back
And so she takes her deepest breath,
Shuts the door and walks down the steps

Chorus:
Nothing ever happens if you stay in your room,
Nothing ever happens if you leave the party too soon!
Never be a winner if you're not in the game,
Nothing ever happens if you always play it safe!
So, make a little space
And get out of your own way
Oh get out of your own way!
Get out of your own way!
- Nothing Ever Happens by Rachel Platten


Need to burn that to a cd and take it with me on the ride to work. I also want to use this lj as a proper journal and keep track of my goals. I don't know who all is active on DW at the moment, so I'll just run my mouth.
