I have always been a firm believer that things happen for a reason. This is why I try not to get too impatient when stuck behind a slow driver, or I lock my keys in the car, because the universe is telling me to slow down - maybe if I were on the road 15 minutes earlier I would have been involved in a wreck. I have mentioned "All Things" (the Gillian Anderson epi. on the X-Files) before, and I'm sure it helped hone my beliefs.
Having recently watched "The Adjustment Bureau" I am NOW ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN that obstacles are placed in our path to help us "miss" things, or Not.
September has been full of adjustments. Things like getting in over my head and locking myself in a bathroom (sounds silly, it was, but it was also one of the most terrifying nights of my entire life), getting my first traffic ticket, changing Aurora schedules, and lots of work.
So in keeping with the theme of the month I'm also adjusting my rules.
My rules - those ever important boundaries that keep me on the straight, narrow, and self-righteous road where I am so comfortable - are suddenly VERY Constrictive. And things that used to seem black and white have suddenly turned bright orange with pink polka dots, and that leaves the rules very, very angry. So we, the rules and I, have gotten together and had a few talks, a few fist fights, a few kiss and make-up sessions, and we've decided at this point on the path they should probably just be friendly guidelines.
Oddly enough I'm mostly all grown up now, and I should just trust myself to make the right decision for me.
A few fun things that have happened between all this self-adjusting are....
Me and the bestie, Angel/Flo at movie premier
Flo, me, Sunny, Gary (Flo's bro), Lacey (his gf) and Amber!
The 11th annual Taste of the Harvest
(yep, that's Aurora sliding down)
Awesome belly dancing at TOH!
I can't wait for October to start! Look forward to PROM!coming, random trips, Halloween prep, and more blogging!
