I have recently found myself at a dead end, a writer’s dead end. My muse has taken flight and I can’t seem to find it. So for days I have sat looking at the blinking cursor and blank page on my computer screen with nothing to write. So I began to wonder (in my Carrie Bradshaw voice over voice) “What would Carrie say?”
More than likely something pertaining to fashion or men!! (So because this is not traditionally a fashion blog I decided to steer clear of her fashion quotes) Then a couple of my favorite Carrie B. thoughts popped into my head. Both quotes making so much sense in my life at this very moment it was almost as if my muse was whispering softly in my ear. So I figured why not go with it?
“Maybe the past is like an anchor holding us back. Maybe, you have to let go of who you were to become who you will be.”
(Season 5 episode 1 “Anchor’s Away”)
At this present moment in my life I find myself “anchored” to the past. One thing I have learned is that you can never move forward until you stop looking back. As I continue on my journey to discover more of who I truly am I let go of bits and pieces of the old me and expose more of the new me. For me, this quote speaks volumns.
“I’ll never be the woman with perfect hair, who can wear white and not spill on it. ” (Season 3 episode 3 “Attack of the Five-Foot Ten Woman”)
This is an invaluable life lesson I have learned. What woman doesn’t want perfect hair or to be able to wear her favorite white pants and not spill spaghetti sauce on them? The true lesson from this quote is in the episode itself. Almost all women are guilty are comparing themselves to another. Whether it be the other woman has longer hair or prettier skin, a nicer car or better job we all do it. While it may appear the grass is greener on the other side that same woman has insecurities about the next woman. So while I struggle daily with puffy, helmet hair from the summer humidity and still wear my favorite white shirts knowing I will stain it before 8am I am happy with myself. I realize nobody is perfect, we all have flaws. Happiness comes from within.
