This year has been pretty challenging for me – and just when I assumed the dust was settling, my sibling has been showing concerning signs of mental instability. But the more I spend time with him, taking him from one doctor to the next, a test here and there, blood work and other evaluations to get to the bottom of this most exhausting nightmarish hell we are enduring as a family, the more he expresses, that perhaps I am the one losing my mind…
I saw the film Wild last night. I did it for a number of reasons. But for this blog only one of them counts. I wanted to end the year with an inspirational story, something I could take with me into 2015 and draw from it to achieve the goals I’ve set for myself. The film jarred me a little, not because it was a great film but because of the story of one women’s attempt at finding herself by walking 1000 miles, mostly to get over her mother’s death. I suppose we all need to do something out of the norm to help us move on. The story got me thinking about what it would take to help me move on. To make the changes I want to make to become a better person. My goal for 2015 is to learn to let go, to be less worried or anxious about things which are out of my control, and focus more on the positives to get me closer to where I want to be in life. And to do this without making myself emotionally sick by keeping it all bottled in as the only means to a solution. That’s my challenge for 2015 and the key to achieving it is dedication and determination. So, here’s to 2015. I am excited and ready.
I’ve seen the film Breakfast at Tiffany a dozen or more times, each time noticing something else about the story, the actors, the set, and yet falling in love with Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard all over again every single time.
Recently, I discovered here that the apartment or building used for the exterior film scenes for the classic is up for sale, interestingly enough we get to peek inside. I find this tidbits fun to share, especially with those who can relate one’s attachment to such a film. I could totally see myself writing my novels here. See for yourself.
This blog, I’ve written and not many times, always thinking I shouldn’t tap into this side of the thoughts going through my brain. But you know what? After the kind of week I’ve had last, I decided to revive the blog, checking the ratings the last couple of days to see if anyone stumbled upon it. And they have, giving me the thumbs up so far. So, sit back and read on, I am more than happy to share. And if you also do have something to say, short story type contribution, please drop a line, and we can make your writings a guest entry, giving you full credit on a vast array of subjects. It will be good practice. Well, let me rephrase – based on editor’s discretion.
