Okay, so this has been a post that’s been on my mind for a while. It’s a topic that comes up far more often than I would like in my daily life, and I’ve decided that it’s time to just write about it, get it on paper (or the internet, whatever) and let people read or not read as they see fit.
There really isn’t much else to say that the title of this post doesn’t already cover, however, I’d like to address each of these points on their own so I can just refer people to this blog post in the future and not have to explain myself a billion and a half times.
A few nights ago, Kate was explaining a situation that she encountered. She said a few times “What I WANTED to say was…” which made me realize how many times in a day, week, etc, that I say that phrase as well. Once I was on THAT thought train, it derailed on the corner of “why the fuck don’t I just say what I want?” with the cross street of “because you’re human and care about the feelings of others”.
Here’s the question that I posed to myself (and now to you, the three that read my blog), how often to you stop what you really want to say to be politically correct to the person that you’re speaking to?
I’ve been thinking about writing this blog post since about 8:30 last night. It’s a little hard for me to put my thoughts into words without fangirling all over the place, or making this sound like a diary entry. So, here it goes.
I decided to take to the blog to state just one thing:
MATT NATHANSON I LOVE YOU.
I have huge expectations. Not only of myself (which I generally kick my own ass over because I never achieve them), but of other people, events, and pretty much everything else in my life. I’m constantly expecting things to turn out a specific way, or for things to be huge epic events, and I find myself being incredibly disappointed when they don’t turn out the way that I expected them to.
Once it was pointed out to me (thanks, Kate) that I actually do this ALL. THE. TIME. I really started to think about it, and realized that it was true. I’m totally an expectation addict.
I read that quote a few days ago on Pinterest, and it really struck a chord with me. It comes from Creature Comforts, and she’s kind enough to provide her train of thought as she made the graphics, as well as printables for the taking! Here’s a link to the printable, and thus to her blog. I’m a new fan and plan to really delve into her posts to see what other eggs of wisdom she’s crackin’.
So, that said – I did a little redecorating in casa K & K…
While Wisconsin is under several flood warnings, I’ve been busy at work and planning a rather big project with the BFF. More to come on the project in the future, but I wanted to get a few thoughts down before I forget about them.
Things have been good. Really good, actually. So good, that I fear if I talk about them, I will jinx myself. So suffice to say that in Kelly land, I am a happy queen. Work stresses me out constantly, but only because I allow it to. It’s something that I need to get over, but it’s incredibly difficult for me to do so. I take things home with me when I shouldn’t, and I dwell on certain portions of my day when I need to just let things go.
