Peace does not come easy

I can only woo-saaaa so long. My black cloud has returned - just moody and judgemental and grumpy and.. and..


The only thing I can control is how I react to things.

I choose happiness.

Now back to life -

I was finally able to fix the brakes on my VW Beetle. Front and back brakes, rotors also. Cost me an arm and a leg, but no more grinding. That's a positive.

I had a SUPER busy weekend. Spent Friday night strolling downtown Macon and enjoying Friday Fest. The egyptian and I stopped by several little spots where bands were performing. We got pulled in by one gospel group outside of Three Brothers Cheesecake. The music was great, but all I could think about was the fabulous cheesecake inside. LOL

Saturday morning we experienced the Old Clinton War Days. If you did not get to see the post before this one, go back and check out the pictures. Man... I have never seen so many Confederate flags in one place - EVER. Sort of freaked me out. Proud rednecks with knives and guns playing war - a war that they never got the memo has ended.

That night, the egyptian and I went to The Grand Opera House and saw the Macon Symphony Orchestra perform 'Bond & Beyond.' Basically it was musical scores from James Bond movies, Phantom of the Opera, Born on the Fourth of July, Forrest Gump and Hook. Amazing.

Since then I have been busy with work - the Macon-Bibb County CVB is celebrating National Tourism Week by offering little courses/experiences on Tourism. I made a point to attend Tourism 101 at the Bureau yesterday. I took a ton of notes and got some really great ideas.

So much to do - so little time to do it all in. I just wanted to check in, say hi, and promise to visit soon.

My question to you is, "How are YOU doing?"

Hi, Nicole. I thought of you as Em, Mom and I strolled around the Old Market. I took lots of photos and kept thinking of how you share your adventures with us!! I will be posting some of them later today.

So happy you are happy!

Peace is something we all need to try and find and hang on to. You are right about us being able to control how we react to things, but even that is not so easy sometimes. I am happy you got the car fixed. I hope you are well! Have a great night!
