Relationships Are A Lot Like TV Shows....


Relationships are a lot like TV shows. Sometimes, the pilot episode aka first date is so magical that we sign on for an entire season aka serious relationship and halfway through it...we realize that all of the good stuff happened in the pilot.

Other times, the pilot episode aka the first date is a little awkward but, still endearing so we give it another couple of episodes to see what happens...and BAM the rest of the season is awesome and you sign up for another 10 seasons aka marriage.

Alas, after awhile the show gets stale. The chemistry fades away to the point where cast and crew changes aka counseling and other things are not enough to keep the show going. It is difficult to let go of the show because it has been with us for so long.

We grew up during the show aka relationship/marriage but, it's best for posterity aka our sanity to cancel the show aka relationship/marriage and move on.
After the show is cancelled aka breakup/divorce the leading man aka significant other moves on and signs up to do another pilot episode aka new relationship. We don't have any prospects for a new show aka relationship and it burns us up that our former leading man has a new gig.

We start to pine and long for our past episodes together...conveniently forgetting about those terrible seasons. So, we go to the actor's trailer of our former leading man or he comes to ours and promises for the future are made.

Then, we wake up and realize that if we go back to our former leading man that our life will be one big re-run with tired dialogue and no opportunity for growth....unless  we decide that we are worth more than having our episodes air at 2 am on Tuesday mornings.

Divatosity: Writer's Nook Envy

I am in the process of creating a Writer's Nook for my townhouse. This task is so  Gen X/hipstery that I feel a little sheepish about even blogging about it. Yet, it must be mentioned because this simple task has turned into a huge undertaking.

My new townhouse has a spacious basement which upon first glance seemed like a great place to set up an office and a workshop. Setting up the work table and supplies went pretty smoothly.

However, the drafty basement has proved to be a not so great location for my writer's nook. Also, it is a windowless space which after awhile made me feel as though I was in some sort of lock down situation.

So, I moved my writer's nook upstairs and this space is definitely more conducive for working. Though, my makeshift printer tables pushed together a long with the dining room chair screams "first apartment out of college chic".

At age 41, I would like to move past that decor and into something a lot more sophisticated.

Alas, cash flo…

Lots Of Irons In My Fire...

The past few months have been hectic in a good way. Years of personal growth, soul searching, and planning have come to fruition. Though, everything is not completely in place yet. I am definitely moving in the right direction.

I know this because the obstacles which were firmly in my way before seem to be stepping aside for me. The Universe seems to have given its blessing to this more evolved path that I am walking. Of course, this is not to say that there will not be challenges along the way.

But, I have learned over the years how not to allow challenges to become permanent barriers. Challenges are meant to guide us in the right direction. Unfortunately,they can occur without prior warning and despite having a solid contingency plan in place. Been there. Done that.

It has only been within the past few years that I have truly learned to embrace the wisdom which can come from challenges and unforeseen delays. A few years ago, several challenges swept into my life and seemed to take …
