Archives for the month of: May, 2013

So unfortunately when someone hurts or disappoints me I find it hard to tell them. Instead I tend to just withdraw. Of course it takes something big and painful to get me to that point but I have lived long enough for me to have gotten there with more than one person.

So you let me down really really badly?  I don’t yell.  I don’t even tell you how mad or sad I am. I just cut you off. Just like that.

But eventually I let it go and I totally forgive you. No hard feelings at all.  I can’t predict how I get to that point or when, but it happens. Eventually it happens. I think because I don’t force it, I just let myself stew and move away, when I do finally forgive its genuine, its the real deal, I really really do forgive you.   And its such a wonderful, freeing feeling.

This week I got to that point with someone who had let me down at one of the lowest points I have ever been at. I feel like I can not only allow them back into my life but that I even enjoy their company again. And that I really really ❤

We are getting  a puppy! Actually my mother is getting one but we are super excited!  More details to follow. The little guy is currently in a village in Eastern Bhutan waiting for a ride to us and we wouldn’t get to see her til the end of the month but I am SO EXCITED! And I love love love the idea of a new puppy to love!

gimlet

Two things that I LOVED happened last Saturday:

1) I tried my very first Gimlet ( Gin +lots of lime= whole heck of delicious) and  it was promptly followed by two more .

2)  I had a good time with a group of people I wasn’t related to.  And it was the first time that had happened this  year. Really. These were girls, a group of sisters, that  I knew in high school. We had been in and out of touch but I always thought they were a  particularly fun family.  It was a relaxed evening in a cute, upscale bar ( usually not my scene but this bar was  particularly cute and particularly empty). We caught up,  we recounted some shared memories, we laughed, we posed for photos (they showed me how to fluff my hair) and we drank.

The two lessons for me were:

1) its good to try new cocktails

but more importantly 2) its even good-er to try old friends.
