Ever see the lady with the perfect house, perfect makeup and family. She seems to have it all together.
I tried being like that once. Sticking to a schedule, always madeup and hair done. Well not always, but I tried.
I tried it with the kid. Soon I noticed my child wasn’t her old self. She didn’t play or laugh like she used to. I didn’t like that. I liked her freer. I noticed something about me too. I felt like a robot and probably came off like that to others with my journey in trying to achieve perfectionism. I didn’t stop what I was doing to give time to my family when they needed me. In fact I don’t think my family liked the new me.
I had lost part of me and the fun out of just being me in life. So out went the new and in with the new me. Sometimes we have to gain perpespective in life. We have to look at ourselves. We may not be like that lady or person we admire but have qualities that person doesn’t. Sometimes we may start to dislike something in ourselves that is a truly great quality. Don’t compare yourselves to others. Just work for the better you or you may be fine just as you are.
So what’s it to you. I’m a retired houseewife with a daughter who has a daughter. So among my favorite stars are Rihanna, Kelly Clarkson, and Brad Pitt is pretty cute. Oh I do like old movies besides the Twighlight Saga.
I still like to dance and pretend Ican sing. I especially sing along with Norah Jones. In the 70′s it was Olivia Newton Jones. I like experimenting with makeup and follow and I am friends with some of the younger online fashionista bloggers. some of them don’t even have children. You’ll find skinney jeans and the latest denim jacket in my closet.
At the same time you’ll get tired of me bragging about my beautiful grandaughter. I’ve grown to like the gray in my hair, after having a bad dye job and realizing it could fall out.
So what’s it to you. Oh well I’ve grown out of Victoria Beckham. David Beckham is much cuter.
My caller or visitor would probably be an aunt or a friend I haven’t seen in years. I’d be very surprised and hope my house isn’t a mess. I would probably hug the person and say something like oh how did you get here and wonder why, what?
I probably would at the same time hope they’re not looking for a place to stay or be so happy to see them that I’d be overwhelmed.
