"WE WALK THROUGH LIFE MOSTLY JUST TRYING TO AVOID FALLING."
Sometimes, I feel I am the queen of mishaps, mistakes, and misgivings.
I'm clumsy at life, at living it - I've come to accept that, and some days are just more clumsy than others (I've also come to accept that there are no non-clumsy days for me, go figure). This months stumble began Nov. 30 - I fell down the stairs outside my apartment and manged to produce an epic sprain that required crutches and a moon boot - but thank god it wasn't broken!
This was a wrench in my main plan to partake in as much Christmas Insanity this year- I wanted to do it all - light watching, snow village visiting, santa-portraiting, but getting around was a hassle, so I didn't do much of that.
None the less - I was determined to enjoy myself no matter what, and so, we saw Tommy Wiseau's The Room, we saw " The Last Jedi" screened at Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood, We saw a ton of movies actually ( Ladybird, The Shape of Water, Jumanji, The Greatest Showman, Coco- for the second time!) we did get some light watching in (drive by style) and I spent time with family eating Ethiopian Food, visiting Disneyland, going bowling, playing Space Invaders on a 10 foot tall screen, we packed in so much in such a short time. Christmas is next week, and I can't wait for that, only because I know I have been extremely blessed, even though there are times that life makes me forget that.
The moral of the story and the reason for this post is this: No matter bleak things are or how clumsy life can get, there's always ways to find a little light to brighten the darkness - IF YOU LOOK FOR IT. I am a firm believer that its fine to acknowledge pain and complain about situations that suck and not pretend that you're happy, I mean, go ahead, #liveyourtruth, but you are also in complete control of what you let dictate your mood and attitude. Let a little cheer in with those blues, wont you? It can relieve the pressure, trust me.
Till next time!
