R is for: Rise and Shine!

Every morning, I begin a new happy life because I have decided that whatever happened the day before is now part of the past and there is not one little thing I can do about it.  So, it’s a fresh start for me every day.
                                                     
            
Now, at the end of some days, I really feel like I’ve been ridden hard and put away wet but with the right attitude, I get over it before I fall asleep.  I could raise a stink, I could rattle someone’s cage but I choose to raise the bar and rise from the ashes  instead,  because Rome was not built in a day and a candid reality check is beneficial once in a blue moon.  I mean, who needs to re-invent the wheel  every day?
                                         
You all know by now how much I love RED!   Well, did you know that a red letter day is a day of special significance?   I knew it!  J   So I roll out the red carpet and close my eyes to the red flags because you could never catch me red-handed at presenting you a red herring to distract you from the red light district  as we both know that’s not the kind of person I am!  I’m the real McCoy, there’s no two ways about it!  Let’s cut the red tape and get down to the facts!  

It doesn’t take rocket science to know that offering someone a round of applause  goes a lot further than running them ragged.  They might just run scared and get run over!   

But let me run something by you: I’d like to run for office and since it’s the rush hour, I need to rustle up some road apples to throw at my opponent.  Hurry up, I’m running out of steam!

Signing off, not wanting to rub salt in the wound; I’m letting you know the rumor mill is at it again… Since I raised the stakes, and am wearing my rose colored glasses, reports are running rampant 
that I’m reaching for the stars!                 

I’ve got news for you:   It’s the real deal.  Read my lips!  Read ‘em and weep!

Riding into the sunset...

Better Be a Little “S” than a Little Less !

    1. Lynn: thank you for dropping by! i rightfully relish regular rehashing of recent renderings regarding being ridden hard and being put away wet! Not a pretty picture in the morning! what would you call it? Remarkable? Repulsive? Romantic?

      Cheers :-) Sylvie

  6. Great perspective. I'll have to remember that when I wake up tomorrow. The wallpaper on your blog reminds me of the house my grandparents lived in when I was a little girl. Their upstairs balcony had a beautiful wrought iron railing with that design. :)
