I have been through a FEW tests in my time… Each of which has made me into the lunatic (aka: honest, uninhibited individual) I am… Love me or hate me, I am who I am. Take it or…piss off (to be honest ;) )
I cannot really remember the last time I picked up wax crayons to draw a picture (for myself) – the closest I have gotten to that in a long while is colouring in with my son.
Can you recall being told to “colour within the lines”? – I can. It never really appealed to me to be honest. Restrictions are nobody’s friend (truth be told). All they do is put our spirits in boxes.
Yes life is busy. Yes we all have a lot to do in our 24 hour days. Doing the "mundane" can ABSOLUTELY feel like the straw that broke the camel’s back on certain days... you know... washing the dishes, doing the laundry, packing lunches etc. etc. etc.
BUT - and this is a BIG BUT...
So, both my partners in crime are away tonight… (aka - my son and my better half). This left me in a position to do exactly as I pleased. Well, I could have gone wild really… but I think I have enough of that trait naturally… no need to add to it hey?! (Nonsense!!! – haha!)
Can you remember the un-restricted passion, energy and enthusiasm you felt as a child? Everything you did – you did 110%. There were no half measures. Everything about our characters as children was uninhibited. We were honest, thorough and real. We had no “blotches” on our canvas so to speak.
Dear Father Xmas…
I have been a VERY good girl this year. Ok, that is not entirely true. I have told quite a few clients where to get off in the last 365 days… (That whole “The customer is always right” rule, REALLY needs to be revised to have a few “sub” clauses added to it.)
What should I wear, who is going to fetch the kids, what can I cook tonight, How am I going to pay this/that bill, why haven’t I heard from them in forever, how am I going to provide for my child’s future, will I ever find someone to love, what do I really want to do with my life?????
Any of these sound familiar?
For couples who have kids, sneaking in a “quickie” can often be damn near impossible, so as all of you who have little ones will know, you grab the opportunities with both hands hahaha!
I would have to say that most of my growing up years were not filled with much emotional clarity. Having come from a divorced family at age 5 and thereafter living with my father as the youngest child and only girl in a household with three older brothers, puberty was a particularly difficult time in my life.
