Sometimes kids say the funniest and most random things. As I was babysitting this past week, the little five year old girl that I look after randomly started calling me burrito. I have no idea why she decided that I should be called a burrito, but for the rest of the time that I was at her house she referred to me as burrito. It made me crack up. I love things that kids come up with, and this particular word is something that I don’t want to forget because of how random, cute, and funny it was.
C’est la vie,
Ps. I know that this is pretty short, however, it is what was on my mind today. As I was writing, I was listening to The Little Mermaid soundtrack… I’m going to see my friends perform the show this weekend and wanted to be familiar with the music. 🙂
As I am sitting here in my living room and looking out the window at all the traffic (or lack thereof), a thought came to mind. I am selfish. I think that being selfish is something that comes easily to people. We don’t want to get in other people’s way, we want to be better than others, we want to be ourselves so badly that we sometimes cut people out of our lives. This is a strange concept to me because although everyone is different and have different lifestyles and things that go on throughout their lives, both trials and triumphs, we seem to think that we are the only ones that have ever felt the way that we do. This creates a focus that is even more self-centered.
We think that we are more special than we are. Of course no two situations are ever going to be exactly the same, but there is always someone that understands what you’re going through. Often, even people in your friend group have similar experiences. It can be hard to open up to others, but it results in a support group and that is most of the time a great thing. I guess the point of my post is that you should talk to someone that you love and trust about your feelings. You may discover new things about people, and you will hopefully become less self-absorbed during the process.
C’est la vie,
Ps. Today was another day that I wrote a post without listening to music. However, I wanted to write before I go bowling with some friends. 🙂 Have a good day, and a good week my friends!
