Shelby read me my horoscope this evening. It was something along these lines: A dreamer set out with a map looking for buried treasure, but got bored with the route he was on so he took a different route. He didn't find the buried treasure, but he saw some great scenery and met some amazing people along the way. You can keep looking for the treasure, but don't lose sight of what you've already found along the way. It got me thinking; Here I am, wayward, on some weird, beaten path searching for who knows what and things haven't been going the way I thought or planned, but I value who and what I've got. I recently cut ties with a friend who stabbed me hard in the back (cut out the weeds; keep the roses is what someone told me) and it has made me appreciate the ones that I have even more. They are so invaluable. So, I may not be rich in funds, but I am in good company and I'll take that any day. I know I say cheesy things like this, but it's times like these that I just have so much appreciation for the things that we take for granted that I want to remind everyone to value those things too. If that wasn't a colorful enough speech, here is a dash of color from a scratch sheet I found with some colorful lyrics.
