Clarity and Colorgenics

I have been in a funk lately. A good old-fashioned don't-push-me-'cause-I-might-revert-to-my-ghetto-roots-and-cut-you funk. My job has given me more work than 2 1/2 people can manage in a 40 hour work week to utilize my skill set during our budget cuts. At the same time giving me more events to plan and things to coordinate.

My person of interest has shown me he may not be worthy of half the attention I am giving him. The few others who have captured my attention are either dying of a terminal disease, much older than I would date or already have women in their lives. Let me tell you dear Blog family, KayC does not play the other woman. Woooo-saaaahhhhhh!

After having an extremely frustrating work week (I know it's only Thursday) and informing one of the men in my life that I am done trying to persuade people to spend time with me, you either want to or you don't I danced myself happy on the Salsa floor and tried my best to sweat out my natural curls. Luckily I found great dance partners and danced myself silly for a few hours. LOVE this photo. We danced for 5 straight songs until we both said "No Mas!" He also taught me how to do triple turns *doing my happy dance.

I ran across this post on Colorgenics via Thoughts of an ADHD Drama Queen and decided to try it for myself. Amazing how accurate it is and I think it pretty much sums it up. What do you think?

You are feeling exhausted, worn out, drained. You feel that far too much is being asked of you but you still want to overcome these difficulties and establish yourself despite the effect such an effort seems to have on you. You are a proud person, assertive most of the time, but at this particular moment you are acting as if you have become resigned to the situation. What you need is some tender loving care - a gentle pat on the head (or maybe a 'kick-up-the backside') and then you'll be raring to go.

You enjoy taking part in anything that may constitute fun and excitement. You need to be stimulated and need to feel that 'Life is worth living' and you are awaiting that stimulation and you don't particularly care where it comes from!

You know what you want and you are very dogmatic and demanding - especially in your emotional demands. You have specific ideas and beliefs and if these beliefs are not realised you can become extremely frustrated. You may not be that perfect but you are looking for perfection with the perfect partner.

You are being unduly influenced by the situation that is all around you. You do not like the feeling of loneliness and whatever it is that seems to separate you from others. You know that life can be wonderful and you are anxious to experience life in all its aspects, to live it to the full. You therefore resent any restriction or limitations that are being imposed on you and you insist on going it alone.

You are trying to build up your own position and you resist all external influences. You insist that you are your own person and you will not tolerate any outside interference. Decisive and proud, you are true managerial material.

I am going to enjoy some live jazz tonight in another effort to work hard AND play hard. Not sure where this current journey is taking me, but Lord knows it is humbling. You can try Colorgenics for yourself here.

Until I gain some type of clarity at this point of my life journey...

Peace & Blessings...


  1. Love that photo! You look so carefree and in your element.

    Sorry you've had a rough week and work is going crazy. This too shall pass. Hang in there.

  2. Sorry you've been in a funk. Me too Mama! Must be something going 'round.

    You look fabulous in your photo. Dancing is truly therapy.

    I'm going to try the colorgenics. Thanks for putting us on!

  3. i know what you mean. this was a rough week for me and to make matters worse...i've been sick.

    things will get better. trust me.

    if the man is not worthy of the time, let him go. let him see what he doensn't have. if he doesn't appreciate what he has...that'll be his loss.

  4. I have been talking about Salsa classes for the longest. You make it look like a blast. I need to get cracking with finding a class.

    As for the men, you know what to do, just do it.

  5. Insatiable One...I was very carefree at the moment that photo was taken. He was a GREAT partner ;-) You are right...this too shall pass!

    MsKnowitAll...Thank you, that photo is my absolute favorite so far. Must be the way the planets are aligned. A lot of people are in a funk.

    12Kyle...Glad you stopped through, was wondering where you were. You are right (as usual :-)

    Eclectik...Where you been?

    Rich...You should take a class, it is a blast. I dance for free every chance I get and have met great peeps along the way.

    You are right, I know what to do. Sometimes I just get into a funk and need to wallow for a moment. You and Kyle give me the swift kick I need sometimes in that dept. :-)
