I work very hard and am attending college to obtain my degree in the Human Service field. Writing makes me feel alive and gives me the opportunity to touch those whom I would not be able to otherwise. Last but not least, I have been blessed with two amazing daughters who love me completely and support my dreams. Feel free to contact me with questions, concerns or feedback.
Recently, the lower half of my hair changed from a dark auburn color to wild raspberry. No kidding. The top half is a honey blonde, giving it quite an artistic touch. I LOVE it!
My youngest informs me that “I am too old” to change my hair color so drastically. Sure, the big 4-0 is approaching within a short amount of time, but how old is too old?
Facebook, MySpace, Match, e-Harmony and anything along that line has allowed us the ability to connect with old and new friends. Those who had once been only a memory come to life as if time had never passed.
First come the winks or email with a friendly hello. The “Do you remember when” pops up via written word. Eventually the emails may contain the “How about we exchange phone numbers” type of communication. When individuals exchange phone numbers, how long does it take for actual conversation to begin?
If you work in an office setting like me, you may feel my pain. Throughout the day, various folks stop by for various reasons.
“Smile and say hi”, is included in my job description. Yet, I am not sure if the fine print was smaller than normal when it stated, “You must also listen to people bitch and complain about everything and nothing on a minute by minute basis.”
It has been brought to my attention more than once that I am one of the Beautiful People. Most would consider me arrogant to make that statement. Allow me to delve into the idea and definition of what most consider beautiful, bringing it into a new perspective.
Each and every day we are faced with images of what most would consider beautiful. Physically “perfect” individuals grace the pages of a magazine and also the screens of our televisions. HDTV has brought into focus what continues to lack for 95% of people around the world. Without tight abs, straight teeth and a fat free physique, we are left feeling less than. We search for answers, keys and insight as to how to obtain a better life. We believe that unless we reach a certain level of physical perfection we will always be lacking in some sort of happiness.
