Do You Trust Me?

We think of trust as a given but truly trust is earned. This is a blog that I can relate with in light of my last relationship

Little Growing Pains

Aladdin asked the question as he beckoned Jasmine onto the magic carpet. Jack asked the same of Rose right as she was about to jump.

“Do you trust me?”

Four words. Probably the most difficult question four words can create.

You asked me once with your hands behind your back, and I said yes with my fingers crossed. Neither of us really knew how to trust at all.

And now we’re here with a lifetime of what-ifs and should-haves and whys, but I trusted you in all the ways I could. You wanted more than I had. You didn’t mean what you said when you said you could save me.

Someone asked me again today. “Don’t you trust me?” they joked as I tactfully criticized their argument.

I don’t trust you anymore. I don’t believe you.

“Sure I trust you,” I reply with a smile. “Of course I trust you.”

This is Marriage

I absolutely love this! This is how I wish my future marriage to be like

Carrie Cariello

Right now I’m sitting in a hospital waiting room. Or, to be exact, I’m sitting in the hallway outside of the waiting room, at a workstation specifically designed for people like me. People who are waiting in a hospital.

I am waiting for Joe. At this moment, he is gowned and unconscious, undergoing a surgery called a discectomy, where they cut a teeny tiny hole in his lower back and shave away the bulging disc that’s been infringing on his sciatic nerve since Father’s Day.

This bulging disc has likely been in progress for years—decades, even. Years of poor posture and carrying toddlers and stacking wood has contributed to the slow pop of an unhappy disc. And finally, a heavy deadlift at Crossfit was the straw that broke the proverbial camel’s back.

About an hour ago I watched while Joe undressed and put on his pale blue hospital gown. I watched him kick off…

A Mini WordPress Vacation (NOT!)

Hey everyone!

Sorry that I haven’t been able to blog lately and this is not much of a blog post. Nonetheless, I am informing you all that I am taking a temporary hiatus once again but will be setting a permanent date as to when my next post will be: December 3rd.

It will be hard as I have been getting into the habit of blogging every day for NaBloPoMo and it is disappointing that I will no longer be partaking in this challenge. It seems that graduate school is not leaving me much time for my creative side.

Don’t despair! If anything, I will be gathering more research for my future blog posts as I will be posting almost daily in the month of December, just in time for New Year’s Resolutions. Hopefully, I will sneak in a club night at the end of this week and I can experience the craziness that involves being newly single.

Have an amazing week and if you are like me who is going through reports and midterms, best of luck!

Sincerely,

The Modern Day Fairy Godmother

A little bit about me

This questionnaire is the product of suzi81’s blog and I highly recommend you partake in it. Just link back to her blog! 

1. Why have you chosen your blog name?

The Modern Day Fairy Godmother was named so because everyone used to call me The Fairy Godmother. I was also writing a book on love advice but I found that a blog would be much more immediate. The addition of the word “Modern” was to show that I was not going to be stereotypical and always kept things realistic, hence the slogan “No Pumpkin Carriages, Just Healthy Relationships and One Day, Happy Marriages”. 

2. When you have an hour of free-time, what do you do?

How about a MINUTE? I almost never watch T.V., so I lie down on my couch and watch my favourite shows or I go out with my friends. You need to treat yourself but lately, my schedule hasn’t allowed it.

3. If you could choose to stay a certain age forever, what would it be?

Nine years old. Things were so simple back then and peers didn’t start getting mean until the year after. 

4. If you could learn to do something, what would it be?

I want to learn how to cook. I feel like I would be the most creative in my recipes by using ingredients that are not so common.

5. What would be the first thing you would buy if you won the lottery?

My dream house.

6. What is the thing that makes you absolutely unique?

My inner strength. I often underestimate it but not a lot of people can go through what I have been through.

7. What is your favourite blog?

I don’t have a favourite as all the blogs I follow have something unique to give. Honestly, I read everything on my Reader like the morning paper.

Give this questionnaire a try!

Sincerely,

The Modern Day Fairy Godmother
