Moody Monday

Hi Guys,

I know I’m usually the one that is smiling, happy and upbeat with a positive outlook (didn’t I just write that ๐Ÿคฃ). I generally write soothing poetry, post exercise and health tips with a touch of humor and there’s always Fun on Friday. If you haven’t seen it, (which I expect lots of you haven’t, PLEASE DO). My Heaven meets Hell on Fri-Yay Funday post was a little edgy and out of character for me with my collaboration but really fun for me to play with a different voice and banter with none other than Gottfried.

I can’t tell you how excited I was to share it with all of you and then when I posted it and broke the link and I ended up in WP hell, I was going crazy. How crazy is that!!!!! So now, I’m the crazy peep. We all know the feeling though of getting something up and ready to go only to find it glitched. I was like “who’s playing with me? Is this an omen from the devil himself, God, Gottfried?” ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ”ฅ And seriously, how important is this in the scheme of things in our life? IT ISN’T!! WE ALL KNOW THAT, BUT IT WAS FOR ME THAT DAY… Well, let’s be clear it was 3 days, cuz it took that long to rectify it.

If I were doing it alone I would have just taken it down and reposted it or something but I felt this tremendous pressure since it was a collaboration, and I didn’t want to let him down. I mean, I didn’t want to get fired before I even started. ๐Ÿคฃ It was a nightmare and I got so many emails and texts letting me know that they couldn’t get on my link. I felt like I had my first job working for peanuts but this is a hobby and hobbies are supposed to be fun but I sure wasn’t having any fun.

Thank you soooo much to all of you for coming to my rescue and heading to my post when I painstackingly asked each of you if you got the link. Honestly, it was a little embarrassing but I am sooooo grateful you came and visited and for all of your comments. There were lots of great ones but the one that made me laugh the the hardest was my husband’s when he said, “Are you Heaven or Hell?” I also wanted to see if you liked it since it was off beat for me and now there was no way to know since I couldn’t get an accurate response. You my W.P. friends, friends and family are simply the best!!!

So far, I’m going to Arizona to buy Lisa from Micro at the Macro a Star Bucks coffee, India to buy 10 of Kumar’s books, read Kevin Kinge’s new book (promise I’ll get to it), Finally read Diana’s book, from D Wallace. Thanks to Athira for telling me the new post had a broken link. Thank you so much to Johnathan Caswell, and Chuck thereluctant poem for reblogging it, Marsha from alwayswrite for linking it, Yvette for telling me it was broken, Scott from inspiredchief for always having my back and emailing me and letting me know, Kritika for the heads up and ALL of you who dropped in, commented and supported me. My kids have now banned me from W.P. and the computer for awhile. They’re right, but I’d say thats elder abuse so I’m locked in the bathroom with the lights out, so they can’t find me while i type ๐Ÿคฃ.

When I tried to reach Gottfried in a panic for help saying “where are you”? His response was
“Out in the real world”. What real world I thought… I was steaming, we all know as writers, this is our real world ๐Ÿคฃ. What planet does he live on anyway! Oh right, we covered that. hahahahah. Oh my, I thought what has my world come to, I am possessed. And now I find out it’s his “damn” birthday so I can’t be too mad or maybe I can, since he doesn’t apparrently like them anyway, or does he” One will never know for sure. Happy Un Birthday Gottfried!!! Smile, you should be happy, I was working for you free while you were living it up, getting you all those new followers ๐Ÿ˜€!

I finally stopped and sat in meditation, came back to center and took some deep breaths. I did a few yoga poses and got out my angel deck card and asked what was this all about and here’s what I picked.

Healing with the Angel Cards Toni Carmine Salerno

In retrospect, I think I have been trying to find my writing voice and putting myself out in the world in a new way was scary. In truth, life is our playground and I will never be a cutter cookie person, just ask anyone who knows me. Boring I’m not, unique, we all are, thus the name of my business, Uniquely Fit. Most of you all loved it and I know that for some of you, it wasn’t your favorite for religious reasons. I want you to know that I’m sorry if this offended you in any way. That certainly wasn’t my intention and I do think there were lots of pearls of wisdom in the post, so I hope you got some of that. For the 100 positive comments we get, we focus on the one or 2 negative ones which is human nature. We have to remember, we can never please everyone, as much as we try and it’s important to honor our own style and expression. That’s the story with perfectionists but we can only do our best. There is perfection in honoring our imperfections. We are all special just the way we are and life is meant to celebrated during our short stay, in light, love, truth and always laughter.

In closing I will leave you with our fellow blogger Curt Mekeman’s quote:

The ability to laugh at oneself has to be a major factor in avoiding insanity. 



Love and Blessings,



Please remember to like (if you do of course), comment and or share and have a terrific day!

  1. ‘We can’t please everyone’. So true!! Looks like you need a few WP tutorials tips don’t you Cindy?
    There’s tons of glitches in blogging for everyone. What matters is overcoming it. I had a bit of trouble with Mr Schedule during New Year ๐Ÿ˜‚.
    My so called suprise post came out early, and 12 people saw it ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†

    1. You got that right!!!! And for sure, much as I practice! There are so many potential problems for sure but you’re right we have to keep plugging away and learning. Oh sorry to hear that… soooo frustrating when that happens. I’m just going to let it right next time I accidentally publish something. Thanks for checking and have a great night I think! โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™

  2. Cindy, I think you definitely need to come along to Bloggers Anonymous if you are blogging in the bathroom ๐Ÿคฃ I write poetry in the bathroom and hope I donโ€™t get caught because how would I explain that? ๐Ÿ˜… Iโ€™m pleased you managed to stay positive through your WP hell!

    1. hahahahah I have to agree Ingrid!
      Thanks but don’t forget, I might have to Drag you with me. hahahah! hmmmm I’ll have to find a few reasons… lol.. Thanks for your support alway. Glad that’s over!!!โค๏ธ

  3. Cindy, I learn new technology kicking and screaming and with tech support holding my hand! As Bill Clinton famously quipped, “I feel your pain!” <3 I didn't experience any glitches and enjoyed your collaboration with Gottfried. This is one time I am not the ending up saying, "Why me?" ๐Ÿ™ Hope all is well with you!

    1. So glad to hear that Cheryl and know I’m not alone. Bill, you and me… old dinnorsaurs but we keep at it, so there’s that! When I didn’t hear from you in my comments, I knew there was a glitch because I can always count on you! But no glitches. Maybe you have a life and are monitoring yourself. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ Glad you liked it and I’m finally moving into a managing Monday.. lol.๐Ÿคฃ.
      Hugs and love โค๏ธ๐Ÿค—

    Thanks for letting me know it was up and viewable! ๐Ÿ™‚ XO Lisa

    1. awwww you are the best. thank you!!! Me too!!! If that ever happens to you…. just go for it. My gify wasn’t working today so i took it off. No more playing around I thought.. lol.
      You’re so welcome and thanks for being a champ and heading over.. Going to your link soon โค๏ธ

  7. WordPress comes with its own share of problems which is not at all fun. I didn’t encounter any glitches though, I am glad the problem is resolved. Afterall as you said its all about honouring the imperfections.

  8. Your posts are so sweet, filled with honesty, loyalty, love, life & humor….”We are all special just the way we are and life is meant to celebrated during our short stay, in light, love, truth and always laughter.”….how beautifully expressed….you’re inspirational, Cindy….so many people came forward to help you with WP glitches….that tells a lot….sending love & light โค๏ธ โœจ

    1. Oh Thanks so much Navin, I’m glad that shines through even in my hair pulling times. I kept thinking where’s Navin in my comments and I didn’t see any posts from you, because I KNEW that you would be there for me and that means a lot. Thanks for reflecting back at me and your kind loving heart! hugs and love backโค๏ธ๐Ÿค—โค๏ธ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿฅฐ

  9. I have fun reading through your comments, Cindy. (I don’t always because there are so darned many. ๐Ÿ™‚ But it’s obvious you have quite a following of people who like you a lotโ€” and enjoyed your post about heaven and hell. Thanks for the mention! Always appreciated. As for computer and WP glitches, they go with the territory, sigh. And just maybe their purpose is to introduce us to Hell. ๐Ÿ™‚ โ€“Curt

    1. Yeah, many were quite funny Curt. I don’t blame you!!!! oh, thanks and I’m glad most got the fun in it. You know I read Gottfried’s post right before I was sending mine which was a quite add on which looked planned but wasn’t I still haven’t gotten time to read his yet. You are soooo welcome! You always brighten my day and it is a pleasure. I think you’re right about W.P. ๐ŸคฃLol!!! see you tomorrow dear friend. โค๏ธCindy

  10. I read your post without any glitches Cindy as I visited late ๐Ÿ˜›
    WP behaves erratically every now and then. I can so understand your situation. โค๏ธ Loved the last paragraph, very beautifully penned down like you do always ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’โค๏ธ
    Have a wonderful week with your family ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿฅฐ

    1. That was awesome it was fixed by the tune you got there!!!
      Itโ€™s so true!
      Thanks Samreen, Iโ€™m glad you enjoyed that paragraph! Kids left today and it was really nice to see then. More DYI projects coming.. โ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜Ž

  11. Yeah! Laughing at one’s self certainly works. Happy New Week Cindy. I’m glad you could get your Friyay post back on track and a Happy Birthday to Gottfried.

    Cheers to more uniquely empowering stuff.

    1. It sure does help!!!! New week, New Dawn is my mantra today and your words always help Ero! Whew ๐Ÿ˜… me too! Or Not as he might perfer… ๐Ÿคฃ

      Cheers to that and to YOU!!โค๏ธ๐ŸŒˆโ˜€๏ธ


      2. Oh my that’s so scary Johnnie! What caused the inflammation? And no Covid? Glad she will be coming home. I’m heading to one more client but I’ll check back in later. โค๏ธ

      3. no covid as far as i’m aware—she’s been tested 3 times already! We both have edema in the legs and both need to watch our salt content. Her kidney function requires dialysis 3x per week. We’ve tried to keep up with things—she has had a hard time getting much regular exercise. MAY YOUR CLIENT BE GREATLY BLESSED BY YOUR MINISTRATIONS AND YOU BE BLESSED RICHLY FOR THE VITAL WORK YOU DO!!!!!!! <3

      4. oh Good to hear that!!!! I ‘m glad you reduce your salt content. Oh that’s tough to have kidney issues and that you both have edema. Elevating your legs above your heart a few times a day would be helpful.,.maybe you do that already. I put a video with tapping (helps immune and organ function) and qui gong that is short and easy that I bet she could do. You can check and see. Awww thank you so much Johnnie and I’m sending you love and blessings to you as well! โค๏ธ

  12. I didn’t notice any glitches, Cindy, and I think your posts are positive and inspiring. This blogging community is wonderfully supportive and we all deal with WP problems. Posts come and go, some are better than others, and our friends stick with us. We do the best we can and no one is perfect – that’s for sure! Thanks so much for the mention too! Yay. Have a lovely evening, my friend. <3

    1. Oh good to know Diana and I really appreciate your kindness and support always in our community! I do agree we have a wonderful group of people here and great friends. I do hear from so many outside of WP that change because it’s so clunky but how could we leave each other at this point?!!! Oh yes, of course. Honestly, I can’t get to reading because of work, reading here, writing and then there’s no time. I don’t know how you manage it al! You’re sooo welcome about the mention as I appreciate you. I will thanks and you do the same!โค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜˜

  13. It seems to me, judging from the length of time it took to scroll rapidly to the bottom to write my comment, that you are none the worse for wear. Your readers love you, Cindy. BTW, I hope you will comment on Story Chat which I posted today.

    1. Thanks Marsha, not with my kind followers just my sanity… lol. I had a great gify for this post but it wasn’t working so I took it out. Feeling a little gun shy about scheduling again. But all is well now! Awww thanks so much. I sure will. I’ve tried to be off the computer for awhile but for sure I will.

      1. You’re welcome! I did want to go back to it as I liked it but didn’t get tkme to read entirely but will and comment. If I get out of here now I’ll never get back to reader. NO MORE troubles for me today..๐Ÿคฃ ๐Ÿคฃโค๏ธ

  14. As someone who is a frequent visitor of WP hell I know how frustrating it can be when something goes wrong but thankfully this community is so supportive you don’t ever have to worry too much!!

    1. how do I know you know it so well Pooja!!!! Thanks for weighing in here. The community is awesome.. it was me I was worried about.. lol .. but I’m back. โค๏ธ

      1. Oh, I have never heard of him. How did you get to know about him? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
        I know, covid restrictions has made delivery services very weak right now. Have you read anything else by any Indian authors? Would love to suggest a few if you haven’t already xD

      2. Go to your search bar and putting in his name… I think it’s Caring Art. He was just very kind and helped me on Zoom with my site. I appreciate his support. I think for him it’s his editor. Sure Shruba, that would be great. I’m just sooo behind in my reading being on WP. that’s the one dilemma for me. thanks, xo

      3. Aa found his blog! That’s really sweet of you to help him out in turn by buying his book.

        I know, it’s the same with me too. I’m taking breaks in between to get some reading done if possible. When you get a chance, do check out Arundhati Roy, Amitav Ghosh and Aravind Adiga. They are all pretty famous Indian writers. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿฅณ

  15. Hey there my friend – I really love the diversity quote and want to know if I can share it later on my blog – with credit of course – not sure where you got it but that was just what I was looking formats week when trying to explain a time for likeness and a time when different is flavor.

    and just so you know – I was rather in a hurry when I skimmed the friday post and did not that the bater on the topic was not my fav topic for religious reasons but Cindy – in my rush –
    I forgot to say how wonderful it ws with the ENERGY, word play, literary flow, and freshness with originality.
    So be proud and keep doing what you do –
    staying you – moody monday or the fri-yah fun stuff

    lastly – the “real word is here” idea for writers was fun too –
    I depart with a smile and hope you have a great rest of the week

    1. Hi Yvette,
      Yes, of course. I’m glad you liked it. I picked it out of the angel card deck and the source is posted under the picture.
      It’s what makes us unique and even though we have differences we can honor each other and voice our opinions. It’s always good to hear the truth not sugar coated, even if it’s not what we want to hear.
      I really glad you enjoyed that aspect of it which is what made is so enjoyable for me. Thank you for your appreciation and encouragement. Moody Monday was another moment when I was just going to post it ( I was too scared to schedule it again for fear of another glitch), and I saw his post and added to the post when I found out it was his birthday. These moments of serendipity is what makes it so fun.
      And don’t forget, we’re not done with the week yet because it’s almost Fri-Yay Funday lol. That too was another natural add on which was another fun surprise for me. The kids say “she uses us for content”. hahahaha. Luckily I don’t have to think about it, it just occurs to me as I go.
      And I depart with a happy heart and hope you have a good nights sleep. โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™

      1. oh that is so funny about the kids knowing you use them for content and i like how you “wing it” and let it flow –
        okay – hope your sunday is going well and be back later to enjoy the fri-yah post. ๐Ÿ˜ŠโœŒ๏ธ

      2. They say they want a cut if I become an influencer.. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ This pays so well… hahahaha .. I best keep my day job. That is the fun of sharing information as we stay tuned in and writing for that matter.
        Moving slow but just finished a nice hike and all is well and I hope yours is going well too. See you soon and you’ll like Fridays post… don’t worry.. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฅฐ

  16. Missed reading few of many bloggers posts. ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ Busy with busy Cindy ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Will catch up whenever I am free….
    Am glad you solved the issue and are back. ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

    1. I know all about that .. hope you’re busy having fun! Happy Fri-Yay Funday!!! No rush..
      SO AM I BELEIVE ME!!! THANKS! โค๏ธโค๏ธ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—

  17. I can very well understand how you felt when this happened. You were so excited for this post that i could feel it here, so far from you. But finally it all went well and all of us could see what a great read that was. Itโ€™s practically impossible for us to stay the same we are at every point of time and itโ€™s perfectly fine until and unless we change the situation we might find ourselves in. We all know what a great poet and writer you are and above that an amazing human being. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‡. About my books they are all prepared for you. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‡

    1. Awwww thanks for getting this Kumar! I know you know since I read some of it for approval from you before which was so kind of you. I was so excited for you to hear the ending too. It’s fun to explore different aspects of ourselves for sure! Life is every changing with one guiding light of truth. I’m humbled by your kind words of being a good writer and poet coming from an author.
      YAY!!! can’t wait to get my books! India is a far way to travel to get them but I’ll be visiting someday. In the meantime I do hope we can get Amazon on board! Big hugs and love, ๐Ÿค—โค๏ธ๐Ÿค—โค๏ธ๐Ÿค—โค๏ธ๐Ÿค—
