Oh, Life

It seems the older I get and the deeper into life, the trickier everything becomes.

And clearer.

But not always in a happy way.

Maybe I was always naive.  Or oblivious.  Or just too optimistic.

But I didn’t see this coming.  I didn’t see life being like this.

It’s taken me weeks and weeks to write anything.  Because every time I start writing in my head it sounds mopey.  Sad.  Whiny.

I don’t want to be that person.

Plus, there are so many people who have it so much worse.

But then again, there are those that have it better, I suppose.

I battle with myself:  Am I allowed to analyze, stress, cry, vent?

If I want to keep this blog going – which I do – I guess I need to stop fighting myself and just hit Publish on this vague emotional release.

Maybe it will help me turn the page.

And start writing more about the hysterical way Xavi has begun galloping everywhere.

Or Carlitos’ newest tendency to sing constantly.  Adele is a favorite.

You might even see a recipe for basil roasted sea bass with herb salad over quinoa and roasted fennel.  That is so easy I made it THIS MORNING while getting ready for work. (To eat for lunch)

Perhaps tell you about the cleanse I am currently doing.  And ask what extremes you have gone to in order to be in thinner/healthier/stronger.

I’m going to give it a try.

    ;)

  5. Monica – You made my eyes water. I am so touched that you want to hear about the recipe.
    ;)

    Seriously, what an amazing comment. I do truly pour out whatever truths are there into the blog and I can’t tell you what it means to have people write such open comments in response. (And flattering.) xo

  6. Julie – The Cleanse Post is coming…perhaps in another week or two once I can upload some (hopefully) shocking photos to accompany it….

    Vent away! I miss your blog!!

    As for the cleanse, I wrote about the “gentle” food base cleanse that I did in January. I barely lasted one day.

  8. Thanks, Erin! I also need to find more time to READ all of the fabulous blogs out there like YOURS. :)

    And I have now done 8 days on this one… but as I sit here in Starbucks writing, I am seriously contemplating my first cheat.
    Should have sat facing AWAY from the baked goods. :/
