Do what you have to, whatever that may be. I love giving vague advice. Now you got me curious...it probably has something to do with Lassie and that dip shit car dealer, the proposal, or that Turkish Bath drug deal gone wrong. Be honest, it was that last one.

Nothing ever worth having was ever easy. It is always wrought with risk and won with courage.

Circle around counter-clock-wise twice, then clock-wise once. Kick up your right foot as high as you can, and then yell "ooga booga boo!"

This is great!!! And Fun. It's like "when in doubt, what do we all fall back on?"

Go with Instinct, Feel the intuition. Go with what Feels right. I'm not talking about Impulse. Ask yourself "what Feels Right?" and go with that.
the best part, Right or wrong, is that you were "True" to yourself.
and when it all goes wrong, wash it all away with beer.*shrug*

i like how charlotte and grunt and vera are telling me to go for it when i very well may be writing about is sewing a penis onto my forehead. nice.

jaime wants me to do a dance, which i tried and i still feel a bit uneasy about the situation. however, i no longer have to worry about my co-workers talking to me so that is a good thing.

mop - i have no idea what feels right! when it comes to this stuff, i lose all ability to think clearly and i wind up just giving up. i guess what i need to decide if this is worth giving up. i'm scared.

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard... is what makes it great. -- Jimmy Dugan (Tom Hanks) in "League of Their Own"

Sewing a penis to your head would be courageous!! Also, VERY difficult! I say go for it, if you truly believe you need to do it. :)
On the otherhand you can "let it ride" and do nothing. Just let it happen, rather than take decisive action.
Then there's the prospect of dancing. Which, knowing what I do know about you, I am dead positive you could make your fortune doing.
Doing what feels right might also be a safe risk to follow. Sometimes the BEST THINGS we can do in life initially feel "wrong" b/c they are not anything we're used to.
In the end, only you can judge that worth and we're just a bunch of blogmates putting in our two cents... Well, four cents for me... I'm a big spender! :)))

How about "play the cards you are dealt." That generally applies to everything.

Close your eyes, focus inside, and figure out what is loving to you. That is the only advice you ever need. :-)

I know what this is about, and I say Don't. Though the result of a Do - as I'm Sure You Will - is gonna make interesting reading *LMAO*

you should definitely most definitely not refrain from making this most important decision, whatever it is.

Holy Crap, the more I read the comments the more I really believe the Turkish Bath House drug deal gone bad story.

Crystal, just go with what you know is right and not with fear or convenience. If you are afraid and that fear is keeping you from making your life richer, even if it means taking on more work or responsibility, then you need to take on that fear and kick its ass.

If you let fear rule your life, then you will be unhappy.

But, since I have no idea what this is about, I may be way off base. With my current winning streak that might be something to consider right there, lol.

If it were me I'd be fasting and praying with real intent. That's just me, though. Not big on religion, but I have to have my God channel on or I'm lost.

Email me the details in the form of a yes or no question and I will ask my Magic 8 ball.

Use a light oil based cleaner, squirt, dab, rinse & repeat.

Take a piece of paper with lines on it. Fold it in half so you have two columns. Unfold. Use a mechanical pencil to draw a line down the fold. Use a red pen to write the word CON at the top of the left hand column. Use a blue pen to write the word PRO at the top of the right hand column. Again, using the red pen, write all of the reasons why you shouldn't do it, in a list, down the left hand column. Use the blue pen to write down all of the reasons why you should do it. Add up how many reasins you have in each column. Write those numbers at the bottom of each column. Now, crumple up the paper, through it away, and wait two weeks. Then, follow your heart. I'm sure this will help. Or toss a coin.

A friend of mine always used to recommend eating a bran based cereal, it usually helps within a couple of days.

So are you going to sow a penis into your forehead, or what? I say go for it!

And what the fuck were you talking about, exactly? I need to keep up on posts.

i've decided against the whole penis on the forehead thing. i am thinking that it may start hurting when the weather turns.

Remember, Chica, "surgery" may be cheaper and quick, but the road that you are on will get you more than just an implement of comfort if you stick with it. Temporary comfort is nice, but is much better if it lasts.

How'd you get to be so effin' awesome and cool? You should post on the origins of those things in your life--how you are the way you are: good.
