I've been in a bit of a weird funk these past few days. I can't really pinpoint it to one thing, which is really bugging me. But that's part of the beauty of life, no?
Growing pains. They're not always fun.
I've even taken to the Mommy Delicious Facebook page and encouraged folks to share their good news over there. Good news -- of any kind -- makes me smile. So get all over that and share. ASAP.
Last night, I was watching Sex And The City. We all know that watching Sarah Jessica Parker and the gals are one of my favorite past times. No, seriously. It was the episode where Carrie is asked to be in a runway show mixed with "real people" and super models. For the runway show, she's all dolled up and dressed in these cute little sequined under panty thingys, gets on the runway in her super high heels, and BOOM! She fumbles, then falls flat on her face. On stage. In front of everyone.
To add insult to injury, Heidi Klum (who guest stars as herself in the episode) steps over Carrie and proceeds to strut her stuff. Ouch. "Oh my gosh! She's fashion road kill!" is what Stanford Blatch says. Ouch.
What I really loved about the episode is that Carrie got back up again. On stage. In front of everyone. And proceeded to strut her stuff down the runway.
And so I'm taking a lesson from Carrie today (don't I always?). My story isn't perfect and I don't claim to be perfect. I've done many things that, in retrospect, I've thought, "I should have done this instead" or "I could have said this instead."
The shoulda, woulda, coulda's of life.
But truly, the only thing that I could do is pick myself up, dust myself off, and try again. Falling down is one thing. It happens to the best of us. But staying down? Well, that just adds insult to injury.
Things happen in my life and they force me to be resilient. Over. And over. And over again.
I'm beginning to have "resilient" down pat.
