Do you ever get that feeling...

... that feeling of transition?

Is it because we are transitioning out of summer and into fall?
Is it because I have recently started to up my freelancing game?
Or is it because my littlest is almost out of diapers?

This is my alien feeling. It's a little spacey. Almost like my body is going through motions, but am not really here... not all the way here anyways.

I've felt it often. 

I'm trying to snap out of it, but I don't think I'm ready to quite yet. This feeling...  is a little comforting. I've hoped for and asked the universe for change, positive change, a lot over the past few years. Change always comes with transition.

It's times like these, I find myself listening to my Johnny Cash Radio station (on Pandora). There are some souls that just fascinate me, and the story of Johnny Cash, his music and his voice are all things that speak deeply and intimately to me.
I hear the train a comin' it's rollin 'round the bend  
And I ain't seen the sunshine since I don't know when  
I'm stuck in Folsom Prison, and time keeps draggin' on  
But that train keeps a movin' on down to-San-An-Tone
While I'm grateful and absolutely happy with a lot of my life, there are certain aspects to it that are in desperate need for improvement. While I've never actually been stuck in any kind of physical prison, I listen to  Folsom Prison Blues and apply it to the financial prison we've found ourselves in. Like Johnny, I know what I did to get myself here. And, like Johnny, it does feel good to sing the blues about it every once in a while. And maybe we haven't 'seen the sunshine since I don't know when', but it is there. 

I have faith and I'm thankful at this moment for this feeling of transition.

Did you know that Johnny Cash became the only person ever successfully sued by the U.S. for starting a forest fire? Wha? If you are smitten, like me, click here for 77 other awesome things you didn't know about the Man in Black.

  1. I enjoyed the link about things I didn't know about Johnny Cash. June Carter had her hands full, didn't she?!

  7. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just
    your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all.
    Nevertheless just imagine if you added some great photos or video clips
    to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with
    pics and videos, this website could undeniably be one of the very best in its field.
    Amazing blog!
