We all are ...


I just saw the promo for Pretty Woman. I love that show. Try to watch it anytime it appears on the screen. Vivian was a young naive wounded woman and everyone could relate to her. Anyone of us could end up like her. Not necessarily being a working girl but in a bad job living on nothing. When we find that one person who can lift us out of our outrageous world, it seems like a dream. We have stepped out of our normal days and into this airy daylight. We can pretend if only for a few hours or a couple of days. Before you know what happens, we like what we are doing. The daily routine becomes better than we thought it would. It could be our new norm. Don’t let it overcome you. The new us. That is what it would be or could be like. That is what any new chance is about. Being who you’ve always known you could be. Whether it was to be loved or to love or to just wear a fancy necklace or send a shell flying at someone at a very important dinner. We were all Vivan and we still are. At least I am.

Happy New Year! One of my favs as well. There are certain changes I must make in my life - and having some difficulty in getting them started, I am inspired by your words - so, thank you!

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
