So, since they’ve been broken for a few days, I thought I’d give you a little brain tickler in case you forgot you wanted to comment…
The Five Stages of Grief… and Marriage? “I think I’m at stage five of the grief cycle, a rather odd thought to have when talking about the best relationship I’ve been in. Yet, I suddenly have a different perspective on some of the difficulties I’ve had being married: my old single self died, to be replaced by this new married self.”
On Dreaming “I want to live an extraordinary life (extra + ordinary, not more than ordinary) but I never will if I talk myself out of anything but the most inexpensive purchases. It’s okay to want, to dream… as long as I’m not wishing. How do you dream?”
Dreams are good; wishes are not “Wishing, though, is really bad for me. Dreaming sounds like this: ‘Someday we’ll have a lake house where our kids can run like wild creatures and be forced to spend time with their parents, telling scary stories and learning to build a fire.’ Wishing sounds like this: “I wish I had the money to finish up the bedroom already.'”
Got any comments? I missed you guys!
