Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! Just keep on telling yourself that…

October 8, 2009

in random

I am under duress at work…  I am a certified procrastinator for important projects.  I will be obsessed with it, can’t stop thinking about it, being kept awake at night worried about it, but feel at the same time utterly powerless.  It is like end of term at school with multiple papers due all over again…  The fear of failure sometimes gets too overwhelming.

I found myself humming inside my head the songs from Mary Poppins on Broadway while I plowed along on my presentation…  First up is, what else?


Then I move on to….  “Anything Can Happen (If You Let It)”

Anything can happen if you let it

Sometimes things are difficult

But you can bet it doesn’t have to be some…

Just what I need to hear right now…  The following always gives me the goosebumps:

If you reach for the stars
All you get are the stars
But we’ve found a whole new spin
If you reach for the heavens
You get the stars thrown in

The last one is currently my “theme song”.  I am sharing with you my secret right now…  It is what gets me going on some of these days when I am so almost convinced that I suck at everything…  I just hum it as I go along with the motions until, miraculously,

I Am Practically Perfect!

Yes, life gets that way crazy, hectic and out of control. Presentations and work keep me up all the time. You are not alone! My rambling thoughts keep me awake too :-) This too will pass.

As always, great blog post.

M’ladies. Thank you for the words of encouragement and commiseration. 😉 I used to mumble to myself, a la Dori in Finding Nemo, “Just keep swimming…” LOL. Now I actually sing to myself. It is a fun song. :-)
