I’m a firm believer that everyone has a story.  Correction, everyone has a “FASCINATING” story to tell, you just have to ask the right questions and get them to tell you the story. 

While sitting across from someone today at work, he told me that he used to be a drummer for a band called the “Landlord.”  A real band.  Official website, touring around the country, myspace page, cds with more than 1 track,  groupies, and etc.  Okay, not sure about groupies, but wouldn’t be surprise to know that they had groupies.  It was the most interesting thing I heard from someone at work in a really really long time.  Someone once told me that they were at one point in their life an Olympic athlete, which I believed in, then of course turned out to be big fat lie.  Clearly, this is not one of those situations!

I am so incredibly encouraged and comforted by the fact that so many people have passion.  Whether you are living that passion or not is not relevant to me, since at the moment, I am too consumed by my passion and direction.  However,  isn’t it fascinating that we are seem to have this drive and inner-self that is always wrestling with the reality of life?  What if money was not a factor and responsibilities of life were a moot point.  Where would you be and what will you be doing with your life?   I am fortunate enough to ask this question and possibly actually live with the answer to that question.  The trepidation of uncertainties and insecurity for the moment is taking a back seat.  Even if it’s for a fleeting moment, I am in a good place right now.

Jen S forwarded me this article after our conversation on Sunday.  I was telling my dear Jen that I told another friend that she should marry for money, not love.  Is it because I regret marrying for love instead of money? NOOOO of course not.  But I see now how much easier relationships can be if you had money.  I”m sure not all relationships are like that, but I can’t help but to ponder about these things, when I look at some women who married “up”.  Did they marry for love or did they marry for money?  And why do their lives seem so much easier than mine?  Is it wrong for me to question these things?  Probably….

In this article by the lady named Lori Gottlieb called “Marry Him”, gives you a profound and dauntingly honest view on marriage and relationships for the single ladies.   She tells you to settle because that’s better than being alone and being miserable.  She actually gives pretty decent support for her theory and rationale behind why she feels this way.  I have to say after reading this lengthy article, I think I totally agree with her on this one.   Would Rachel have been more satisfied in life with Barry instead of her on-again/off-again Ross?  Would Carrie have been more stable with Aiden than Mr. Big, the man who abandoned her countless times?  These are really awesome questions!

I guess that may be contradictory to my religious belief.  But I don’t think God wants us to sit around and wait for Mr. Perfect and put your life on a complete “hold” status or be in and out of dysfunctional relationships either…..
