Happy Friday! Happy Friday! Happy Friday!
I must say- I needed that sleep last night. By the end of the night yesterday, I felt like I was going a bit crazy. I was just such an insanely busy day. I don’t want this blog to be a “woe is me” complaining platform, so I choose not to mention- that sometimes I’m not always positive and sometimes really stressed. I felt like I couldn’t keep up with everything on my plate. I paused for a moment and thought- “Is this what it’s about?” I worked so hard to get to this point and I’m pulling my hair out? I said to myself, Calm the Beep down. Why take things so serious? If I want to manifest all my dreams and goals, I have to be able to handle what is given to me at any given time. Isn’t there that saying- “you will never be given more than you can handle?” It’s so true. You only live once- DON’T take things so seriously Amanda!! Have FUN… PLAY! (there I said it…it’s behind me now;)
Another saying I like is “The moment you don’t have enough time to take a break- IS WHEN YOU NEED TO TAKE A BREAK!” Isn’t that true? Mike and I might go to Seattle for the night on Monday. Just to chill out and have a mini vacation.
I really feel AMAZING today though! I went down to my gym for a run and a bit of weights (I ran at 6mph for 30 minutes)
Then I came upstairs and starting reading my emails. Voices.com (one of the companies I get lots of my work from) sent this stat sheet over in their daily newsletter:
I thought it was pretty neat to see how well this online company is doing! I went to the main voices.com page and there I was- the #1 Top Favourite female! I am usually in the top 10, but it’s always fun to be #1!!!!!!
Woo Hoo! I am right up there with Deb Munro (one of my coaches) and Janice Downes (the voice-over QUEEN). Persistence and hard work does pay off! I may not be a rock star (which was my initial dream) but I am absolutely in love with my job. “AH HA”!!!! LOL
What are you up to this weekend? Here is a breakdown of some of the stuff I am doing:
1. Filming and completing the video we are doing for Stormtech… (more info on that coming…..)
2. Going on an ‘Insiders Tour” of Granville Island. I am doing some craft making, beer tasting, dinner at Sandbar, boat ride… stuff like that. This is going to be a hoot. (We will be doing some more filming of this as well) I always have fun on Granville Island. Here I am at the Chocolate Festival, tasting beer and chocolate!
3. Running a Half Marathon on Sunday! Well, I’m more like walk/running it. I talked to my coach and we came up with a plan. Since I haven’t been marathon training per say, my coach advise that I run 9 minutes, walk 1, run 9 minutes, walk 1, and do the whole race like this. I think that is a good idea. I want to feel good after this!!
4. I have 3 friends that are playing music tonight (at 3 different venues).. PLUS another friends birthday dinner. Not sure what I’ll be able to attend, but I’m gonna try.
OOOH, I almost forgot…any Valentines Day plans??? Do tell, do tell! Like I said might go to Seattle for a night on Monday, or we may do nothing, it will depend if we can wrap up some jobs first.
