When Dreams Turn To Dust…

I always say if you do something insanely ridiculous and feel stupid about it, come sit by ME, I’ll make you feel better.  I am after all, the queen of overzealous mistakes, an impetuous wild child from day 1 who rushes madly full force after somewhere she’s headed, grasping for items and dreams without any kind of plan whatsoever.  Upon meeting me, you would never know how much ridiculousness I can get myself into.  In fact, those that have just met me, tell me I remind them of Elle Woods.  Remember ~ Reece Witherspoon’s fictional character from the movie Legally Blonde? Elle Woods is the ditsy but well dressed blond who is never without makeup and a matching outfit.  I can’t decide if it is insulting to be called Elle Woods or not.  I’m still pondering that one….

But then there are those that the real me and know how I really am on the inside:

‘Bridget Jones’ singletons threaten housing crisis, figures suggest

Yup.  That’s the real me.

Bridget Jones. Goofy, unlucky in love and relationships, always saying the wrong things, flubbing her sentences, setting out to make a gourmet dinner and ending up with blue string soup. Then there’s her thin and wispy hair that’s often a disarray, weight wars…. She’s a girl who struggles mightily, though usually unsuccessfully, to make since out of her career and love life.

And oh yeah…

 + two children.  And a dog.

Bridget ain’t got nothing on this single girl!

With this said, a goofy girls approach to getting ones self out of the rut with her point system is just what the doctor ordered.  Dr. Moi, that is.

Since I made up my point system five years ago, I’m like trying to remember what in the french fry west I did to start up this whole point system and then I remembered that napkin I was telling you about in my last post and decided to get a lil more sophisticated and actually use a sheet of paper.  For some reason, Jack Canfield, Steven Covey and Tony Robbins all recommend for us to ‘write it down’ so we can stare at it.  Since these fellas has a trillion smacks in the bank and I’m the one has has a trillion smacks across the face these days….I’m going follow their advice and start with my list.

What Do I Want?

1. I want somebody to tell me what I want because this darn list is overwhelming me and I just started it.

2.  I want my kids to be happy.  Yes, this is too general.  Poop.  How do I want my kids to be happy? And how much of their happiness is my responsibility?

3.  I want those people, the same ones that I want to be happy, to get back on track and help big momma clean this house!!! Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. (Can you tell it is getting pretty hairy around here and I’m down a maid?)

4. I want to forgive people who have hurt me but I’m still so angry and hurt, honestly all I want to do is mass produce voo doo dolls of ‘said heart stabbers.’ After about one million are made, I would like to give these voo doo dolls away at Grateful Dead concerts. NOTE: Each voo doo doll with come with their own pin for repeated sticking!

5.  I would like to miraculously erase all cellulite dimples and for all silvered stretch marks to magically disappear.  You know, POOF!

6.  POOP.  I’m stuck.  Already.

Ok, I’m overwhelmed.  WHAT DO I WANT?????? WHAT DID I DO BEFORE THAT MADE ME SO HAPPY?!

Hmmmmmm.  Certainly I want a lot in my life….and I know this list needs to consist of 100 potential points……….

Think I will dig through my files and pull out that old list… Stay tuned and no laughing when you read my list. 🙂 If you bother to even make your own list, I’m sure we could all grab a bottle of cheap Carlo Rossi Paisano Vino  ~ FYI: it’s quite tasty, lite, cheap, and won’t give a girl too bad of a stinger the next morning.  What more could a girl ask for these days? ~ and laugh our tails off at yo list too! Hahahahahahahah!! But I will show you mine and what I accomplished five years ago.  This is also what those motivation gurus recommend: Figure out what you did before that was working for you…. and do it again.

And remember: when dreams turn to dust….vacuum.

And never, never, never give up…
~Winston Churchill
