Well. Doing really nothing for the past two days except watch TV has really shed some light on the a few certain subjects. I want to thank everyone for the comments on my Holiday post. It meant so much to me that Omg I'm not the only one. Your right, I need to take a step back & just cool it. I honestly forget sometimes that I'm not an octopus with too many hands to help. Doesn't it seem like you need to be one in order to get things done these days?
I picked the above picture to use as my motivation today because at that moment was the start for Cinderella of something wonderful. I know fairy godmothers don't just appear out of thin air, but a comment or a post that makes my smile go up to my eyes is just as grand & magical. This blog is my start of something wonderful. At first it seemed that I was waiting for someone to come back or something to fill my time & was doing all these lil projects to build up my character. I stopped trying to figure out who I was & was just playing the cards I was dealt thinking okay this must be it for the time being. That reasoning for this time in my life is just soo WRONG! I thought since I had to have surgery I can just go with the flow & pray that I keep my head above water. I thought maybe I'll stay at my job til I get my Christmas bonus then leave. If I eat for a few days whatever I want then cut back my weight will be okay. Or Maybe he'll miss me just a little... No, that's no way to live.
What I'm trying to get at here is that this very important lesson I'm learning is the need for a lil direction. Without it, you can feel ever so lost. I characterize myself as the frowzy girl in the beginning of the movie listening to some song on the radio & she's at the 4 way intersection & then someone honks at her so she picks a direction. This blog is helping me find that lil help & go the right direction. The fairy godmother gave Cinderella the dress, the chariot, the horseys, & the shoes. I do have A lil black dress but you guys are giving me the chariot, the horseys, and of course the shoes. lol.
I think everybody whether they want to admit it or not needs a direction to follow. Whether it be what college, what guy to date, what shoes to buy, what house to live in, what nail polish would go good with my winter wardrobe, what car to get or even hair up or down? And I don't know, it might just be me, but I feel good when I've put my mind to something & then did it & then feel like Woa I did something I planned or I took that advice and it worked!!
I had left my glass slipper somewhere amongst the mess I've been. But this is the new start. It started about 2 weeks ago. I'm looking for the prince with my slipper back & now I'm waiting for a realistic true happy ending.
Also my mom said to me something yesterday that I thought I would share. She said, "Melanie I want you to do one thing for me. It's a simple recipe too. Just smile." So I hope you all smiled today, even if it was at one of those silly commercials on TV now. I smiled & laughed because I was outside when the fire house whistle went off & I actually had air-time shrieking because it was SOO LOUD!! hehe.
Well I'm done wasting my time with certain things & taking that much needed direction to heart. Thank you. <3.
The title of this post is from the song, "In the Waiting Line" by Zero 7. Great song. It's in the movie, "Garden State" & in that "Sex & the City" episode when Mr. Big has bypass surgery & Carrie realizes Mr. Big's switch & gives up on him & starts dating the Russian.
