My New rules. rule 1 It is not what matters most it is whome

My mom said that if I’m going to call it getting wiser I need to share my wisdom. I don’t know about that but, but I have been working on some rules for a graceful adulthood.

Tangent— When I was 29 I was freaking out a little about turning 30. Not because you know don’t trust anyone over 30, but because 30 seemed like I had to be an adult. I  didn’t feel ready to be one yet and heck I still not sure that I’m ready. At any rate when 30 rolled around I was pregers with Little and so life was way different anyway.

Rule 1,

Its not what matters most it is whom.

Clearly I have been trying to get rid of lots of whats lately. For one thing as Flylady says you can’t organize clutter. For two I am really working on simplifying our life. Mostly though I am offended by some current trends in society. Namely the” I have the most money and I spend it on things to let you know that I have money, because my worth and my value is directly related to how many expensive things I have”.  I find this very distasteful. I also find it so sad that young people are idolizing people who have clearly put things over people. These “stars” relationships suffer and they are not happy and they can’t figure out why since they have the newest and most expensive handbag every season.

Don’t get me wrong. I love a good handbag. I am also vain in the way where I do think appearance is important.  I also like some big designers . However I don’t think my worth is intrinsically tied to any piece of anything. People above things. It sounds simple, but as we go through our day to day life how does this play out?

Br0ken Girl Diaries

“Once, I can’t remember, I was long ago, someone strange. I was innocent and wise, and full of pain. Now that I’m a woman, everything has changed. Once, when I was searching, somewhere out of reach, far away, in a place I could not find, or heart obey. Now that I’m a woman, everything is strange.” – Amalthea from The Last Unicorn.
