Serious Daring

I've been feeling a bit down the last few days, maybe because I came home from a nourishing visit with a friend, maybe because I applied for a job I was excited about and well qualified for and it looks like I won't hear anything back, maybe... Here are a few simple things today that penetrated through this -

#1 - Walking/jogging to the thrift store. Just that little time outdoors moving was helpful.

#2 - Buying a schmancy orange dress that I will probably never wear and therefore didn't make sense to buy, but it made me smile.  (It was $3).

#3 - Writing the word 'schmancy' for the first time.

#4 - My niece's dance move with her left arm, no shoulder, just arm.

#5 -

"I am a writer who came of a sheltered life, a sheltered life can be a daring life as well, for all serious daring comes from within."
