Wasn?t it Thomas Wolfe who said, ?You can?t go home again?? I think it was. I take that to mean that you cannot recapture that which is in the past. You may find yourself in a similar situation, but things will have happened to change you and so your perspective on it is different than it was before. I?d say generally, this is a good thing. At least, in my case it is.
The Universe has been giving me lots of food for thought lately. It?s been giving me opportunities to show what I?ve learned over the past, oh, say 19 months. Can I really and truly keep things in perspective and not let them engulf my life as they did before? So far, I have shown that I am up to the challenge.
In so many ways my life is different than it was before. I think the biggest change, though, is knowing that no matter who loves me or who doesn?t, I am always just who I am. That is something no one can have and thus, no one can take away. If I had a child (feels like such a dim prospect at this point), I would teach them that lesson early on. Be not dependant on others for your own self worth. Look to yourself and be proud and happy for your strengths and work to become a better version of who you truly are.
Such serious thoughts for a basically snarky grrl, aren?t they? Yeah, well. It?s been an interesting week. When the (what you thought was) impossible happens, tends to make you think a bit.
CAPS NEWS: Caps lost last night to the Atlanta Thrashers (4-3) and Witt slammed into the boards and has a concussion, I think. No official word on it but I hear that?s the dealio. Sucks. We cannot afford to lose ?Greasy Jesus? this early in the season.
The weather is ?Fantabulous? today ? I went to DD for coffee and then over to the mall.
Random lyric for today:
Freak on a leash – Korn
Something takes a part of me
Something lost and never seen
Every time I start to believe
Something’s raped and taken from me
