Wow…what do you do?

September 17, 2009 at 2:22 am (Uncategorized)

i just found out that a person i considered a friend did something utterly awful to another friend. i feel betrayed, like maybe i never even knew her. in fact the day after the ‘event’ she had the nerve to have a conversation with me that seemed completely normal. when all the time this transgression had occurred just the day before.  now, i know i’m being vague, but its mostly to protect the innocent (not the evil one).

i have never experienced this level of falseness and i’m just not sure how to react.  part of me wants to turn all turbo bitch on her, but the other part of me recognizes that its not really my place. i have not in fact heard her side of the story…but when emails are sent and calls not taken, there seems to be only one side.

i’ve extended my support to my friend in need; but what do i do with all of this other emotion? maybe i will ‘un-friend’ her on facebook…that might be a start! do i turn the other way if i see her on the street?

in all my years of friendships, i have never had this happen. sure you have the times when a few girlfriends are gossipy or catty about another friend, i’ve taken the high road sometimes in that case. i’m not going to lie, sometimes i’ve been the one to say not so nice things about another friend. but, this time its way beyond idle chit-chat; this hurt is for real and has both emotional and tangible impacts on the injured party!

arghhhh! i hate this, are we in 5th grade?????

starting over

September 1, 2009 at 9:46 pm (Uncategorized)

for whatever reason this shouldn’t be as distasteful as it sounds. starting over should/can be vital and important in many aspects. whether you are starting over on your diet, your career, your marriage, your life; starting over is to be embraced with arms wide open. maybe your eyes are closed, but arms wide open would be best.  i guess if you played it safe in life you could have the best of everything. kept the same high paying but soul draining job year after year; but would you be any happier?

is stress really a bad thing? should any life be free of drama, heartache and problems? isn’t those things that color our perceptions and make us (hopefully) a better more understanding person? if we’d never lost a job….how could we empathize with someone who has? i’m not suggesting that you keep a daily dose of high drama in your life, but don’t be afraid of change….big change.

do you ever feel like it will take a monumental event to pull you out of a valley so deep? that changing everything, your home, your job, friends, your hair color is just what you need to shake things up and get you on track? i’m not talking about a ‘track’ to ‘normal’ but a more satisfied living.

so here’s to BIG changes! coming soon…stay posted!
