I will warn you right now, this is not going to be a fun or inspirational blog.
It’s funny how life is constantly trying to teach us something. Whether it be to watch out for a destructive cycle repeating in your life, to push ourselves out of our comfort zones, or to simply take a breath and dance in the rain.
Let me start off with a few quotes from a movie that is dear to my heart “Tangled” and just perhaps you will relate to them like I do:
Rapunzel: [after leaving her tower; happily] I can’t believe I did this!
Rapunzel: [worried] I can’t believe I did this.
Rapunzel: [excitedly squealing] I CAN’T BELIEVE I DID THIS!
Rapunzel: [nervous laughter] … Mother would be so furious.
Rapunzel: [later, sitting on a rock holding some water lilies] Well, that’s okay! I mean, what she doesn’t know won’t kill her, right?
Rapunzel: [rocking back and forth in a cave] Oh, my gosh… This would kill her!
Rapunzel: [frolicking around] THIS IS SOOO FUUUUUN!
Rapunzel: [standing on a tree branch, head up against the bark] … I am a horrible daughter. I’m going back.
Rapunzel: [cartwheeling] I am NEVER going back! Woo-hoo!
Rapunzel: [face down in the grass] I am a despicable human being!
Rapunzel: [swinging around a tree] WOO-HOOO! BEST DAY EVER!
*Uncontrolable dancing ensues as the Star Wars Theme plays loudly in the background*
Many of you know the connection with this specific day of the year and the iconic movie franchise, others may just be getting annoyed with the constant Facebook posts and tweets from me over the years.
Oh well, I regret nothing!
Now it just so happens that this year the May of Fourth lands on a Thursday, and in my world that is “Blogday”. So sit back, relax, and enjoy why I think that “The Phantom Menace” is the best of the prequel movies!!
DUN DA DUN DUN DUN DA DA DUN DUN DUN DUN DA DUN DUN DUN DAAAAAAAAAAA!
I’m back, baby!
My life has been a series of ups and downs for a few years now, and I mostly try to focus on the positive but there are many days that I struggle with severe depression and anxiety. It’s these times that are the hardest for me to stay in touch with reality and keep focus on the goals and the responsibilities that I have.
First of all there is something that I have to tell you:
Yesterday was a truly awful day.
I had a very early doctor appointment after I struggled all of the night to sleep, and then in the afternoon I was faced with adversity and opinions that felt as if it would break me entirely.
If my heart could control the weather there would have been a great deal of rain to match the tears that fell down my face.
