Fuck Busy

Definitely me lately. Excellent post!

The Belle Jar

Late last night I was cruising around on Pinterest because hey I’m a boring 30-something mom and that’s what I do when I can’t sleep. Which, by the way, is every night, meaning that I’ve developed a bit of a Pinterest habit, among other things (my  insomnia-beating arsenal includes such soothing activities as: watching documentaries about the Chernobyl “liquidators,” hate-reading the blogs of conservative white dudes, and sending slightly incoherent late-night messages to my friends and acquaintances). Anyway, I was happily scrolling through pictures of pretty landscapes tragically marred by trite sayings (example: a gorgeous mountain at sunset with DON’T GIVE UP, THE BEST IS YET TO COME scrawled across it in white letters) when I came across this:

I had one of those moments where I was like, “oh.” And then I was like, “yes.” And then I had this huge mishmash of complicated feelings that I’ve been trying…

Media Love vs. True Love

It’s no surprise that the media portrays a very unrealistic version of love. However, it is a surprise of how young the media is targeting.

Today, I was doing some notes and working on some networking projects. My stepbrother (8 years old) and my stepsister (11 years old) went through a marathon of shows on family channel. We watched:
Good Luck Charlie
Jessie
ANT Farm
And The Next Step.

Although these shows can be quite funny and adorable at times, they carried messages that did not promote a healthy relationship. Some behaviours included:
making someone jealous to get back together
Putting someone through impossible tests
Liking someone only for their high status
Making people remember minuscule details

If I were a parent, I would boycott these shows. Where is the confidence, the forgiveness, the sincerity and the unconditional love that is needed in healthy relationships and marriages?

No wonder divorce is a common option.

Busy days don’t make us stray

I think that a lot of people make up really poor excuses to break up such as “I fell out of love with you”, “I have to find myself” or the best one:

“Our schedules are not compatible”.

Let’s face it, busy days don’t make us stray. It’s how we truly feel that makes us stay or stray. It’s what in our hearts and who remains in our hearts that determines our level of commitment. If we are not committed, we will find any excuse to avoid and escape.

There are times where we are not 100% ourselves and we would rather sleep than be romantic. However, if we can we still say that we love them and still enjoy their most romantic gestures, that’s what matters.

If you truly love them, you will make time, no matter what the reason.

Sincerely,
