Thursday Treadmill Treats
Don’t rain on my parade
As I sit here once again at another airport waiting to go home for a friend’s birthday party, I am yet again grateful.
In the last 4 years since my divorce I have learned to live my life large. I have travel almost every other month it seems. I have got to make memories with friends and family that will last me a life time. I have gotten to do things I’ve never dreamed possible and have an inner peace I thought I’d never find.
Yes, to all you haters out there, who by the way don’t pay any of my bills…when you ask “Do you work?” Or “Must be nice…” aka I am so hating on you right now…
Listen up…I refuse to have regrets, I refuse to sit around and watch others live their lives, I refuse to not live and enjoy every single second until I am called home.
For years I worried about others options, I put everyone’s happiness before my own, I lost myself, I hated myself and my life for 24 long misrable years, well I am done…this is my life. I might have 30 more years or 30 more days but it’s mine to do with what I want to do.
So when you see me traveling yet again, when you see me out on dates, when you see me with this one at this event or that one at this party, it because I chose to live my life to the fullest.
I chose to let the dishes pile up or the laundry sit there to go out last minute for dinner with a friend because that is what is important to me. I will cancel a date in a spilt second to spend the night with my girls, see these are the moments that make life worth living.
Yet so many people get caught up, in work, in chores, in the day to day in life they lose themselves, they forget what is truly important…to live!
So today my friends, hate if you want…but this is my life and to quote one of my favorites Barbara Streisand…
“Don’t tell me not to live just sit and putter…don’t tell me not to fly, I simply got to… if someone takes a spill it’s me and not you… who told you your allowed to rain on my parade…
Im gonna live and live now get what I want and get what I want want…
Hey look at me world…here I am…I’ll March my band out…at least I didn’t fake it…nobody is gonna rain on my parade!”
