*You can try your hardest to help someone but it won't do any good if that person isn't willing to help themselves.
*You can't make people change. Even if they do, it's only for the short term and then they revert back to their "normal" selves.
*Sometimes, peace, quiet and stitching (and tv...can't forget about that!) is more therapeutic than a night out on the town.
*I'm thankful for friends who lend me an ear and tell me they think I did the right thing even though at times, I don't think I did.
*To help someone because it's the right thing to do...for them...sometimes means it is not the right thing for you and you come out a bitter, angry, resentful shell of the person you used to be.
*Reminders of the person you used to be 12 years ago are spirit-lifting and smile inducing. I miss that person! Now the goal is to find that "me" again and have fun doing it. Oh to be young and carefree.
*Sunday farmers' market...wheat loaf, lemon curd croissant, strawberries, apricots, eggs, cinnamon raisin bagels, zucchini and summer squash. Yum, yum, yum. There were squash blossoms but I don't know how to make those...
*I'm grateful for an awesome onsite apartment manager that can save me and my scattered brain when I lock myself out of my apartment.
*Random text invitation from a friend to go see a movie made my day!
*I wonder what acupuncture would be like...guess I'll find out tomorrow! Eek!
*All day meeting tomorrow....it's going to be a looonnnng day! And a sad day as I'm sure the topic of the two SF firefighters who died will come up. It hits a little too close to home.
*I'm happy that people seem to like my randomness posts! Thank you, thank you...
*Today is the first day in the past year where I am 100% happy that I am single and that I am done mourning the loss of a relationship that probably would have killed me on so many levels if I had stayed in it. My heart has finally caught up to my head. And I feel deserving of all the things I was holding out for before...waiting for that mad, passionate, extraordinary love to find me. And I got tired of waiting...and I settled. No more settling...no more pinning...no more sadness. I am done and ready to have fun and rediscover myself.
*I'm making good progress on WMHB and I may just finish it by the end of the week! Stay tuned for a picture when I do!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend...I'll be back soon with photos and stuff.
Until next time...
