The blonde and brunette were talking over lunch.
“Babe, do you realise how crazy you’re sounding?
I understand you’ve had this great life epiphany, conquered your fears, dyed your hair blonde, and are ready for the next adventure in your life, but I hate to tell you sweetie. it’s not that easy.
Don’t you think if it was then everyone would do it?
I don’t mean to keep you down, but let’s look at this realistically…what you’re talking about doing is impossible.”
The blonde picked up her chardonnay.
Eventually she spoke.
“Ok….yes….the holiday did something to me, but can’t you understand…..this is my destiny!!!
This is what I have been born to do!!!
How can I not do what I was born to do???
How can I go against my soul?
How can I go against my dreams?
How can I live my life knowing I want to live one way, and yet deny myself and live another??
What am I supposed to do?
Get a job stacking shelves in the grocery store, because I am afraid to live my life?
Because I am scared of what other people are going to say?
No. I don’t think so.”
The brunette looked at her friend and shook her head.
“Babe. You don’t understand the full extent of this data profiling. You want to go live your destiny, that’s fine, but what do you think will happen to your family? To your friends? To yourself?
Do you watch the news? Do you read the paper? If you are not perfect…if your past life is not perfect….what do you think happens?
Let me ask you these questions” said the brunette, “and you say yes or no.”
“Have you ever lied?”
“Yes” replied the blonde.
“Drank too much?”
“Cheated or stolen something?”
Have you swam naked?
Got yourself a speeding ticket or three?
Found yourself in a jam you wish you hadn’t?
Have you ever done anything in your life you regretted?
Because I’m telling you, it’s impossible to escape.
You can’t erase your past.
You can’t do it.
No matter how much you want to begin your life over…..
No matter how much you want to re-invent yourself… other people won’t let you forget.
“That’s the point!” interjected the blonde
“I understand I have this crazy messed up past life…but that’s the point. I can’t change who I was but I can change who I want to become.” Click To Tweet
“It’s not about erasing my past.
It’s about learning to embrace my past.
This is what life is about….
Life is about living.
This is my destiny....to be alive....to live...and to do it in a way that aligns with the woman I am today, and not the woman I was yesterday. Click To Tweet
“Hun, all I’m saying is it’s not that easy.
If it was, then everyone in the world would be living the life of their dreams.”
“You know, what’s the point in trying to be something you’re not?
I know you want to change babe, but what’s wrong with life the way it is?”
“There’s nothing wrong with life “as it is”……
you know I love it here…
I just want to try…..
Just one shot.
