“It doesn’t matter what size you are,” said the owl. “Just use your brains and you will find that you are big enough to do anything.
Perhaps it is just me and the way things have repeatedly unfolded in my life, but I find it funny, how (often) as women, when we are single, we are enormously independent. We could literally take on the world. We are intelligent, passionate go-getters and very driven! - Yet when we enter into long term relationships, we become ‘comfortable’ with the so called ‘roles’ of each gender and to some degree (in my opinion anyway)… lose ourselves, our passion, a degree of our confidence and mostly our belief in our amazing capabilities and ourselves in general.
Yes, well, we have all been there haven’t we ladies… I am definitely an advocate for “live and let live” – or – “accept others so you too will be accepted” but seriously, I have managed to pick up some PRIME strays in my lifetime!
"Moaner Lisa" is a common part of my vocabulary – in simple describing someone who whines a lot… ultimately expressing the old “If you don’t like something change it, you are not a tree” quote
Recently, my family and I visited a local restaurant that happened to be hosting a private event. We were made aware of the event the day prior when making our booking and were thus speedily eating and planning to leave as timeously as humanly possible. As time went on, the flamboyant and vocally extravagant “event guests” slowly trickled in.
Can you remember the un-restricted passion, energy and enthusiasm you felt as a child? Everything you did – you did 110%. There were no half measures. Everything about our characters as children was uninhibited. We were honest, thorough and real. We had no “blotches” on our canvas so to speak.
What should I wear, who is going to fetch the kids, what can I cook tonight, How am I going to pay this/that bill, why haven’t I heard from them in forever, how am I going to provide for my child’s future, will I ever find someone to love, what do I really want to do with my life????? Any of these sound familiar?
I cannot really remember the last time I picked up wax crayons to draw a picture (for myself) – the closest I have gotten to that in a long while is colouring in with my son. Can you recall being told to “colour within the lines”? – I can. It never really appealed to me to be honest. Restrictions are nobody’s friend (truth be told). All they do is put our spirits in boxes.
I have been through a FEW tests in my time… Each of which has made me into the lunatic (aka: honest, uninhibited individual) I am… Love me or hate me, I am who I am. Take it or…piss off (to be honest ;)
For couples who have kids, sneaking in a “quickie” can often be damn near impossible, so as all of you who have little ones will know, you grab the opportunities with both hands hahaha!
