I cry when I watch Glee

I am a crier, no matter how hard I try to deny it sometimes it is true that I cry a lot, even for the smallest things that generally people wouldn't cry for. I cry in movies, I cry when I read books, it's just so sad.

Lately I have been crying when I watch "Glee".
A lot of people are shocked by this... but Glee has this way of tugging at my heart strings, and I love it.
This is honestly one of the best shows I have ever watched! I would hate if it ever got cancelled.
But it is just so funny how I manage to cry all the time, in nearly every episode. Sometimes I rewind a part just so I can cry again.
I know, *hangs head in shame*
But it is just that powerful.
The way they sing, the way they dance, their acting, all of it is so convinving you can't help but get emotionally involved.

A lot of people somehow can't stand Rachel Berry, (Lea Michelle) and I can totally understand where they come from, but when she sings, doesn't all that just go away?
For me it does, She can make me believe anything with that voice of hers. As annoying as she can be, she is awesome.

Maybe I am sick, maybe I need to see someone about this, because just yesterday when I tweeted how I cry when I watch Glee, someone laughed at me. They obviously thought I was crazy. Am I?

Either way, I LOVE GLEE! I love anything that can make me that involved!

Please tell me I am not the only one?

It Doesn't Suck To Be You

My mother has this tradition of always making us say what we are grateful for everyday. At first I thought, do we need to? I am thankful for everything. But when it came down to actually being specific, it really put things in perspective for me. So often do we take the things that come our way for granted, we don't actually take the time to appreciate how blessed we are because of these things, and how blessed we are because not a lot of people get to have the same opportunities we do. Some of these things may be small, like I am grateful for the rain, but not so long ago I heard that about 70 elephants were killed in Victoria Falls because of the heat. AND THAT is not something to take lightly. Imagine what those elephants could have done with a little rain. 

10 Things I Am Thankful For Lately

1. The fact that I am surrounded by family. It is truly the best feeling being around the people that you love the most and that love you the most.

2. The Mr and my inspiration. He is truly the best, and even though I am always thankful for him. I realize more and more everyday that he is someone I admire too. He shows such strength when things go wrong, and a lot of people can take a lesson from him. Including myself. 

3. One of my best friends babies. She recently gave birth to an amazing little boy named Christian and I am IN LOVE! 

Look at this little buba!

4.  Being able to complete something I have put my mind too, no matter how badly I think I cannot do it. 

5. Being brave. I've recently had to do and say a lot of things that I really needed to say and do but didn't think I could ever. 

6. My Boss. She is an awesome woman, and she shows me everyday the things I can do. She makes where I want to be in the future seem so real.

7. Choosing to let go. Anyone can tell you, letting go of hurt and anger is so hard but you are so much better for doing it. I choose to do this recently, and I can honestly say I am thankful I did. 

8. The experiences {good and bad} that have made me who I am today, and the people who have walked with me through it all. 

9. Silence. I do the best thinking then. 

10. Thankful for the fact that I am able to be thankful

With so many things to be thankful for everyday, it surely can't suck to be you! 

Try it, what are you thankful for?

This Time of the Year

Whoever says friendship is easy has obviously never had a true friend!

I completely agree with the quote above. I always say friendship is never easy, and neither is any relationship with two different people. But true friendship stays true even in the midst of all the hardship. I always seem to keep learning this same lesson every year. It is hard to find true friends, because everyone these days comes to you posed as the greatest friend you could ever have but before you know it, they have done a number on you and you are left shocked. Why some of us still get shocked, I don't know, but this year I came across a lot of people, became close with some, but still at the end of the year I find myself thinking 'how did we get here' 

The saddest part about this time of the year is that I lose someone I thought so dear to me. Last year same story, this year, we are at it again. It is only then when I tell myself 'I can't anymore' that I realise that this person hasn't actually been a friend to me for the longest time.
It's funny but I use my birthday as a way of telling, it might be a bit selfish, but I always use the way my friends treat me on my birthday as a way of telling how they actually feel about me. I make a big deal out of peoples birthdays, especially those that are SO close to me, so when the same is not returned to me from those exact same people, I raise the red flag. Like I said, this could be selfish, we are not all the same, and people show they care in different ways, but there are times you just know.
So this year, I had to 'break up' with someone I used to call my BEST FRIEND. Do I miss her, yes, but do I regret my decision, no. We all deserve someone in your life that will be true to you no matter what. We should not have to question day in and day out whether someone is infact your friend, these are the things that you should just know without a doubt.
That's the problem with me, I am forever questioning who my friends are, it's not fair on me and it's not fair on them. Suddenly someone changes on you, or suddenly someone has a lot of negative things to say about you, or suddenyl someone decides 'I want new friends now' whatever the case is, I seem to have a case of frenemies! People who just come into my life for a reason and season, but never a lifetime.
My mother always tells me, the older you get the less friends you have, and I am now starting to see her point. 
A shout out to the THREE people that remain my special friends throughout the years! (",) 

 Feel free to share stories of any friends lost, or friends gained? (",)
