Out of Character

Oddly, it is the people that we love the most that we are most willing to be the most “out of character” for. After all, we are told from an incredibly young age to be ourselves always- that people should love us exactly as we are, not for who they want us to be.

Possible

I just got back from a mini vacation. It was just a quick three day getaway with some girlfriends in Utah, about two hours outside of Vegas. Check out my Project 365 blog for some photos. Rocks were red and purple and gold when the sun shone with a blue cast after the moon rose. The sky was blue, the clouds looked like cotton. Small waterfalls and tiny rivers flowed through the ravines- I can’t say I’m a very spiritual person, but if there were ever proof that a higher power does exist, I would say it lies in natural beauty- and I was in total awe.

Finding Support

Well, I’ve done it. I have launched a personal website. Not just a blog, oh, no. A website of the marketing services I offer.

I find myself in awe of many of the people that I have the privilege of calling my friends.
Friendship is a funny thing, anyway. Different personalities collect different types of friends. Sometimes, there is the occasional oddball in a group and sometimes an entire group is one you’d have never seen together. I think my most enlightening moment regarding my own friendships was my birthday last year. I invited every single person I thought of dearly to celebrate with me. Most were able to join me, but it was just eye opening to see how many different “groups” I was a part of. I found myself spending time with each of these groups individually as they clustered with those that had been invited that they knew and I thought to myself “I wish all of these people knew how awesome so-and-so is and would introduce themselves.” In retrospect, I probably should have played host and done the introducing myself, but these are the things we kick ourselves for later.
