Happy Llama, I am.

#HAWMC Day 15: Get Excited!

HappyLlamaWhat revs up your internal engine? When you see, hear, feel this it gets you excited and ready to face what comes next. Tell us what it is!

I thought this prompt was a wee like yesterday’s prompt…so I hummed and I hawed…(not really)…I thought and I pondered…(totally)…and it finally came to me:

“Dear Pattie”


“Dear Brynn”


That’s what gets my internal engine going…what makes me feel like I can take over the world.



I know how I feel when I get a message or comment from someone I never in eleventy-billion years ever thought would have had a read of a post or three.

When I get a message telling me how or what part of my journey resonated in their own.

When someone takes the time to send a letter or socks or a supplementary towel when I want to punch the Cosmos in the junk and I have no feckin’ idea who sent* it.

*Disclaimer: I can’t thank someone profusely if I don’t know who sends things…which is, I imagine, precisely why said unknown person sends things unknowingly…

When someone shares a story with me that is SO personal, I would never, ever have known they, too, were enduring and persevering.

THAT is exactly what gets me revved up, people. When you take the time to tell me how sharing my journey inspires and encourages…

…because so many of my days are spent second guessing myself, hesitating to click “Publish” or wanting to hit “deactivate account.”

And, when I know that when I keep on keepin’ on in the eyes of someone else, it inspires me to keep on keepin’ on. It pours fuel on the spark of my creativity and my endurance, no matter how small of a spark I have on any given day.

Words can certainly hurt, but the words I receive from you have sure as shit been helping to raise me higher than I ever thought I could achieve.

Thank you.
