Ever had a song stuck in your thoughtful little head?
It can get annoying but not always. Mamy Blue seems to be our theme song this week.
Tonight, we went out for a walk and shopping. Everyone got dressed up nicely and we hit the beautiful little town of Kerkyra. When I was younger, I often went into my mother’s closet and played by myself. I would put on her clothes (pretend they fit) and put on her shoes. She says, I would talk to my imaginary friends and make all kinds of voices. To be honest, I don’t think I ever thought anyone could hear all the voices I did or at least know I had multiple stories going on.
I barely remember them now.
Dressing up and feeling nice has grown on me a lot. Mostly, because I’ve finally reached an age and understanding of knowing what I look good in, but also feeling confidant in myself. I remember years ago, how awkward and uncomfortable I felt with my body. I wasn’t one to feel I was beautiful or even believe myself to be beautiful.
I thought I was secondary.
I no longer believe or think of this reality to be true. Sometimes it creeps up and takes me by surprise, but for the most part I’ve learned to love how I look and who I am as a person.
All to say, there’s so much beauty around. Having a song suck in one’s head. Walking through shops and talking in the night is so unbelievable beautiful. I’m astound by how lovely the day and the night can be – it’s not an either or, but a both. The world is so incredibly beautiful, we just have to notice.
