I have to thank Rachel and Pete once again, they will get bored of hearing me saying that. Or more precisely reading it..
For me nothing cheers me up more than music. And through the rough time I had the last couple of months, Rachel's voice was soothing and so helpful. Listening to Just Breathe, Sunrise, In The Mix and Spin, among others, made me feel so much better. Also Quadrophenia, Who's Next and Simon's songs are constantly shuffling on my mp3 player... All great, all transporting me to dreamland and oblivion...
Heart matters can be very painful, but...educational as well! We learn about ourselves, we find an inner strength that didn't know it existed. We find escapes from the cruel reality and ways to deal with our disappointment. We make decisions not to make the same mistakes - but most of the time we make them again... Still, through the sadness we find peace, and for me this peace came through music.
And work. While I was mourning my lost romantic story, I worked even more and with more zeal than ever before. And that paid off with a commendation from a customer, which made me glow with pride!
I'm not going to talk about my heartbreak for now, maybe in the future I will write a book about it. Accompanied with a box of Kleenex.
By the way, I am surprised and pleased with myself that I haven't smoked for four months, even through these difficult times. Hurrah!!! I hope that answers your question, Dale... :o)
Moving on, moving on!
We have Who concerts coming up, the Convention (still haven't got a ticket, and it's sold out, but I'll go on the day and beg for a ticket!!!!) the fabulous Attic shows and the chats that cheer me up so much.
My mommy is coming on Tuesday, staying for two months, and then I go to Greece in May for my 40th birthday!!!! God! I'll spend 5 days partying!
So yes, life IS good, thanks to beautiful things, like a song, a word, a place, a movie, a comedy, a show, a blog!
I'll be more regular in here, I promise, things can only get better! Thank you so much for your understanding!
Happy St Patrick's day, for all those who celebrate!
