Been feeling the same, doing the same thing, looking the same for ages and ages. Apart from that discussion with Tom about having more kids – an idea I am far from keen on!
I like feeling light, being crazy and acting accordingly a majority of the time – these days I am lucky if I get to be crazy a few times per year!
We can all be too serious at times (even me). So, I’ve decided to go back to the fun, light me! So there!
Might even reinvent myself – horrify Tom (and his friends) by dyeing my hair purple, orange or even green – or maybe have all colours together!
I am going to start doing things I normally (lately anyway) would not do.
My comfort zones have changed – I am at danger of becoming a boring suburban housewife – of being middle aged and dumpy before my time. I can make some fun changes I think by simply changing my routine and become a little less stable and stifled.
I need to get back to being MYSELF – and get Tom to be more relaxed (even naughty) too.
Somehow, I feel I have got myself into the unfortunate habit of starting to worry about what people will think about me being a little ditsy – never worried me before so why now? Maybe they will judge me – nearer to the truth is the fact that 99% people probably don’t think about me at all or what I may be doing.
Money is short for Tom and I at times, even though both of us work full-time. Just reminded myself that some of the best things in life are free – that is not just a saying, ITS TRUE. Sometimes it is the simple things that really give you a buzz – just being in the moment with your partner and kids!
If you are a Type A personality (an addicted planner that is) – don’t plan for once – go with the flow. In other words allow things to happen naturally – do things spur of the moment – it can be really fun when you throw a little caution to the wind.
And never, ever, wait until the time is perfect to do something – you will likely never do it if you wait until the time is right!
I was walking down the street the other day, just going for a walk, and didn’t see one person smiling – even the fellow who was talking loudly to himself as he strolled along was frowning and sounding angry!
Will end with a few really great funny quotes, some more than others:
- “People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do”(Isaac Asimov)
- “Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please” (Mark Twain)
- “Go to Heaven for the climate, Hell for the company” (Mark Twain)
- “A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man” (Lana Turner)
Now I know some people will want to write to me saying some of these are out-dated or sexist in their opinion. Don’t bother. They are funny anyway! Well I think they are and surely a few people had a little laugh at one or two?
