Everything You Want

I can’t believe I’m about to quote Jennifer Aniston but after reading a little blurb in the December issue of Vogue, I’m left thinking …yeah, that makes so much sense.

I’m positive I’ve thought it or felt it or even known it before but I’ve never really seen it written in a way that it clicked.

Everything you want in the world is just right outside your comfort zone.”

…and this may be an unnecessary addition but if you never leave your comfort zone {or are too afraid to} are you destined for a life of wants instead of a life of gets? And what if you are willing to wriggle out of your comfort zone to leap to the next level but your significant other is not {or vice-versa} . . .what then?

don’t hate me but. . .

I am so not feeling Christmassy this year . . . more just plain assy about it.

I don’t have a house to decorate or put a big beautiful tree in. I don’t have kids to get excited about the holiday with. I just don’t care. I’m totally depressed about it all and honestly, I just want to skip it this year and move right on to January.

I know, I know, I’m being a big huge baby! I’m focusing on what I don’t have instead of what I do have but every Christmas for the past four years now I look at the tiny tree we have to squish into our tiny condo and I think by Christmas next year, we’ll have a house …and here. we are. again.

No house. No baby. No Christmas spirit. Bah humbug!

My husband is always really excited around the holidays and wants to decorate asap. Minutes ago he texted me WHEN CAN WE GET A TREE …and I responded whenever but really I wanted to say WHEN WE GET A HOUSE TO PUT IT IN.

It’s not my husband’s fault we don’t have a house, it’s not anyone’s fault. We live in LA. It is what it is. I’ve even owned a house in a past life so it’s not really only about a house. It’s about being stagnant and not moving forward and not for lack of trying.

My question is when do I get everything I want? Will I ever? Are we just too afraid to go outside our comfort zone? Am I?

I feel like Ariel. {Okay, that just made me laugh out loud} …you want thingamabobs? I got 20 …but who cares? …no big deal. I want MOOOOOOOOOORE.
