“Men are a luxury, not a necessity.” Cher
I wonder if Cher always felt this way or did it come with age and maturity? I remember being oh so young and needing a man to feel, I was going to say whole or complete, but the truth is I needed a man to feel I had any worth, any value.
I was so insecure and unsure within myself that I thought a boyfriend was what proved my worth, what made me beautiful and interesting. A man was what made me better than who I was, or so I thought. Sad, huh? Makes me angry to think about that young woman who was so miserable because of her confusion and foolishness. That young woman made a lot of silly, and some not so silly mistakes!
Now I am oh so much older and know that I do have worth and beauty and I am interesting. Though still often confused and sometimes foolish I am who I am and ok with it. Would I like to be crazy in love again? You bet! Is it necessary to be happy and fulfilled? Nope! Would I consider a man in my life a luxury? No, but it would be a sweet gift this time around.
The last movie I saw at the theater was so long ago I have no idea what it was!
2. The title of my autobiography would be Crazy Complexities, Complications, and Confusions. I think that describes my life quite well.
3. I would love to learn how to refinish/reupholster furniture…I think, but then maybe not. See #2.
4. I am glad that I learned to crochet because it is relaxing while doing something productive, I make gifts for friends and sometimes for people I don’t know, and it keeps me off the streets and out of the bars.
Celebrating the Small Things
This week I celebrate:
The weather is changing and I am so ready for cooler temps.
I finished one of two gifts that are needed next month.
I got through the day at work though I wanted to go home because I felt awful and thought I would feel better at home. As it was I got sicker when I got home but that is ok…it’s always better to be worse at home.🙂
Okay, this is the way it is. I am soooo far behind on reading (and commenting on) the blogs I follow that I am not even going to try and catch up. I am simply going to forget about the ones before today and try to stay current starting tomorrow. I know I am missing some really good posts but seeing all those that I haven’t read is making me twitch. So, good-bye old and hello new.
Not sure how I got so far behind. Well, there is the crocheting I am doing for the two babies coming in October and the work I am doing in my condo that I cannot put off any longer. And there is the fact that I still do some writing and responding to comments made on my posts…though I am behind there, too. Then there is the pesky part-time job that I actually have to show up at and do some work or the boss won’t pay me. Of course, I still have books and movies that somehow call my name and make me lose track of time. Oh, and let’s not forget the all important daydreaming that must be done. See, I am a very busy person. Sort of.
Anyway, thanks for understanding. You do understand, right?
See y’all tomorrow, I think.
