Hello, fabulouses! Today is Motivational Monday. I am personally living by the saying “I don’t care how old I am; I’m going in the bouncy castle!”
The topic of today’s Motivational Monday is “growing up”–more or less. Earlier today, I looked back at old blogs to see what I was doing in June 2012–what I was wearing, how I was modeling, and so forth…it was so much fun looking back that I had to explore earlier moments…so I went back to June 2011….
Growing up and change are two facts of life…both are going to happen. We are all evolving–from our looks to our personalities–it is what makes us human. If there is one thing I have learned from Betty White, it is that no matter how old you are–have fun and be yourself!
Since growing up and change are going to happen…I am personally going to kick off my shoes, hop into that bouncy castle, do a couple of flips, fall down–get back up, and enjoy life’s opportunities to the fullest!
I am a sucker for sharing baby pictures…so here is one of my favorite childhood pictures. (Taken in June of 2000.)

Isn’t it amazing how we change over time? Oh, it feels like just yesterday when I was taking my first dance lesson and writing my first short story [The Decteve’s Eye aka The Detective’s Eye]–even if I did misspell everything and there was no flow…or plot…or conclusion.
Anyway, the moral of the story is…it is always good to push aside the worries and stressful activities for a moment of fabulous fun–jumping around in the bouncy castle–no matter how old you are!
