just keep swimming...just keep swimming

My daughters are hooked on Finding Nemo and I have been suckered into watching it more than once.....okay, you got me, I guess they didn't have to pry all that hard. Anyway, the character dory is so wild and out there that I find the girls going around saying the little crazy lines ellen puts into the act.

My 4 yr old was doing the whale talk today and I was practically rolling on the floor. We have all repeated the just keep swimming line, me for different reasons, from time to time. I get overloaded and recite the line to remind myself not to get overly stressed about the things I cannot change. Then I focus on the things I can and try convincing myself that I am the only one that can induce change in my life. Factors around me may cause my situation to fluctuate but the decisions and effort I put forth will bring about a change I can control.

So...I tell myself to just keep swimming and eventually I'll get to the other end of the kiddie pool. Damn....I gotta get out more, huh? Anyway...for all of you that are feeling like your drowning in the situation that is flooding you with stress or emotions, I say to you.....(deep breath) Just keep swimming, Just keep swimming, Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming, what do we do we swim, swim, swim.

Sorry, got a little carried away there. For those of you that have seen it though...admit it...you were singing along, weren't you? All we can do is continue to push through life working hard at what it is we want and reminding ourselves to not get overly serious and forgetting to put a smile on once in a while.

Well, till next time...I....Don't wanna grow up, I'm...a toys-r-us kid..just kidding, later all.

mari, thanx for the sing-along...always love your singing voice.

shy..I am thrilled that you got some comfort from one of my posts...a very wise person recently reminded me of the wonderful things in my life and all that I have to offer. Sometimes all we need is a good thought from good people.
