You Haven't Seen That?! Part II

As mentioned earlier, I'm not the most educated t.v. and movie watcher.  I rarely get it when people reference an incredibly popular scene.  I usually just smile and stare blankly when this happens, then embarrassingly admit that I have ZERO clue as to what they're talking about.  Yup, I'm that girl, y'all.

To continue my earlier discussion about things I haven't seen that most of the world has, I thought I'd list a few movies that I haven't ever seen.  Ever.

All of the Star Wars Movies
The Godfather
Lord of the Rings (I tried, but just couldn't get into it!)
Gone with the Wind
Monty Python and The Holy Grail
Any of the Rocky Movies
The Waterboy
Rudy
Any of the Harry Potter Movies

Just to name a few.  Some I'm embarrassed to say I haven't seen and others, I just don't really care to.  I have been trying to broaden my movie knowledge lately.  J and I have recently added to my list of WATCHED movies all of the Bourne movies, all of the Die Hard movies and all of the Resident Evil movies.  

See, I'm not that bad.  :-)

A friend sent this video to me and when I watched it, I was struck more by the feelings it brought up around the content than the story itself.  Christen Reighter's story is an interesting and frustrating insight into what it means to NOT want a child. I invite you to watch this. Her experience is not unique and needs to be talked about. Even if you have kids. Or want them. What struck me most was what she says during her TedTalk: "I have believed having children was an extension of womanhood, not the definition." Truth is, I've been struggling with this lately. Not the fact that I'm longing for children. I'd be fibbing if I said there is a very tiny part of me that wonders what this will feel like when I get to the end of life. HOWEVER. That feeling isn't strong enough for me to want to find out. I don't feel like having children should be thought of as a "keeping the fingers crossed" kind of situation. If you aren't sure you'l

Experimental.

I have a little secret. Today marks 30 days since my last drink**. I had attempted a 30-day alcohol-free period in January of 2018 which ended up being, arguably, one of the most challenging years of my life. I made it 26 days miserable days and it all ended because Brucey , my beloved rescue dog, died while I was traveling to Miami for an event. This is when I discovered that Walgreen's sells wine (what?!).  I look back at my first alcohol-free attempt and I realize that I wasn't really set up for success. Hindsight and all that... Not only did I try to detox on January 1st, but I was also newly ramping up training for my big bike adventures AND I decided to try my hand at 30-days of Yoga with Adriene . All of these things independently are (and were) really good things. Healthy. Mindful. Etc. Etc. However, I went into that period of time looking at not drinking as punishment. This dry spell was needed more than ever. With COVID hitting a year ago (that's another post in i

Goodbye.

 “I don’t know if I should congratulate you or console you.” - Craig “How about both?” - Me This was a conversation in our kitchen earlier this week. After a year and a half of weekly therapy, I had my last session with my therapist Tuesday. Not because I was over it or because it wasn’t working or because he retired. Nope. Because we got to a place where we could both say I’ve got the tools I need to move on. I have to say that there is no timeline for therapy and every situation is unique. I moved on from intensive therapy with my therapist because that it was worked for ME. I am certainly no expert and I have a feeling this isn’t the end of my therapy forever, but I do know that my experience with the right person allowed me to heal in ways I literally never thought possible. And it gave me the experience of a healthy “goodbye”. I was never prepared for that, so when we set an end date (not-so-coincidentally my Nanna’s birthday), it was hard to process. No one talks about
