I woke up with that song in my head this morning. You know the one? And She Was by Talking Heads so I thought it would make a good title for a post.
Have you ever been chatting with a friend and talking about someone whom you both knew (know) and how life has changed since we were (insert time) ie in college, in high school, etc. and the comment begins with and she was (insert characteristics)?
So I’m thinking what I would say about myself and what others would say about me to finish the line And she was as opposed to me now.
Here’s what I came up with – And she was:
happy, carefree and flirty, thin, willful, unafraid and joyful.
And now she now feels she is:
Tired, over 50, feeling fat, worried and soooo mentally exhausted sometimes when she doesn’t want to be, lonesome, responsible, forgotten and needs to remember who she once was!
The fact is that I DO remember that Janie as she was the ME I loved most. So now that I’ve told you about me, I have to do something about it. I’ve had enough of ’embracing life’s changes’ because I want that girl back. Or at least ignite her positively to help to transform and invigorate this older version of Janie.
Who’s with me?
