Some thoughts from others...

Reading through one of my Favorite Books "Girlosophy" both the soul and love survival kit by Anthea Paul, i always find something that hits my own soul. So I am sharing with you....

Picture Perfect- the question is not is he perfect? That's not the issue. The real question is: are you perfect for each other? And don't compare anyone new with your previous partners either. They are all in your past and there's a reason for that. Focus on the present and the potential in that for your future. Who's in the picture RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW?

The walls in your heart should be made of glas, so that the light shines through

Make all communications CLEAR OPEN HONEST

Give from the heart, not because you have to- but because you want to. And because you can.

It's whats going on in your head thats important- not whats going on in theirs

Say NEVER~ never mistake kindness for weakness, never take advantage of another person's time or good will, never stoop to conquer, never think you'll get away with it, never forget where you came from, never give up

Men are not the enemy, even if you've been told they're from Mars. They can be your best friends. But if you date younger men, be careful and remember- big girls shouldn't play with little boys.


Protect your self-image. Don't believe the hype. Physical beauty is a poor standard by which to judge anyone.

and finally:

It doesn't matter where you've been, you can still change where you're going. HOPE is a driving factor in helping us stay on course in life. It may feel as though it comes and goes, but in reality there is always hope. There is always a chance for something else to happen, and you need to have faith that it will.

Bumble Bee?

I love my Mom and she always gives me such a laugh.

This week was no different.

We were sitting at an outdoor restaurant and there was a single bumble bee flying up to us and our food. We start discussing Bumble Bees and she mentions something about the "bumble bee song" - thats on the radio now-a-days. And I have no clue what she is talking about. So I am now trying to figure out what song she speaks of? My first thought is the kids song "baby bumble bee" - she's like "no, its on the pop stations". So my next thought is maybe she means "fireflies" by Owl City. Nope...Hhhmmm

Next day, we are at dinner with friends and the question is re-addressed. Have you heard of the "bumble bee" song on the radio? Nope same situation - same songs are thought of.

On my way to work this morning, I put on the radio and the first song I hear is: "Imma Be" by the Black Eyed Peas...and it hits me- THIS IS THE SONG MY MOM HEARD. LMAO At the same time my friend from the night before texts to say - she has figured out its that song too.  Of course, I called my mom and she agrees thats the song. Of course she still thinks the song is about a Bumble bee even though she has heard it a 100 plus times. She hasn't paid much mind to the lyrics.

LOL- in the end it just proves that each generation has its own language. "Imma Be" and "Im a bee" to my mom are one in the same. Of course even their cover shows a BEE so maybe she isn't that far off.

And that's why i never have to be bored when my mom is around.

Love ya Mom <3

Hats on my mind...

So this upcoming Monday I'm supposed to go to a Mad Hatter party and of course if I go I have to find the perfect hat to wear.

So I started thinking about Hats.

I use to collect hats when I was a kid, I have a collection of some really crazy hats- some purchased back in the day when they had the actual Mad Hatter store at Disney. I came across a box of them just recently when I was cleaning out some storage containers. I had completely forgot that hobby until then. Now I wear an occassional college baseball cap or visor, when I'm having a bad hair day or gonna be at the beach for a while.  And when it's super cold I have a few ski hats. But rarely do I wear a hat now-a-days. And of course all my years of theatre also offered me an array of hats to wear. Hats are great- they say so much without actually saying a thing. They are a way of  becoming someone else.

Once upon a time, it was proper ettiquette to wear a hat out in public and now we only wear them if we feel like it. A man in a hat shows such presence and yet we rarely see that today. Women looked so sophisticated and pulled together. Now if I were to wear one of those ladylike hats, people would think I was heading to a costume party. Then it was customary to wear hats to weddings- I love that!

Now it seems the only time, outside of Halloween, is the Kentucky Derby~ where everyone wears a hat, even better they try to outdo each other to have the BEST hat! I hope one time in my life to head out to those races and try out my own fabulous hat.

So I am looking forward to finding a sexy fedora to sport to my Mad Hatter Party and enjoy an evening of Hats Galour!
