Mommy Needs To Vent

Friday, September 29, 2006

I know I am a little late here and I meant to post something a while back. I watched the interview on 20/20 the other night and it got me thinking. I can't say I was a HUGE fan of Steve Irwin, but I was a fan. My husband and I used to watch him all the time and my heart would jump every time he got too close to one of those Crocs. I always thought something would go wrong. I should have known that most of those shows on Animal Planet were not Live and nothing was ever going to happen.
To hear about his death was a shock. All the courageous and close calls he had, and then to lose his life over something that just doesn't happen. A freak accident of nature. I think I heard someone say that someone being killed that way had only happened one other time. I pray for his family and I know they know he is in a better place. They also know they will be with him again.

Thinking of this makes me wonder what our purpose in life is. Do we even have a purpose? Life can be a cruel thing. We are put here to live and build a life, and then to die. Did Steve Irwin have some purpose that someone in a higher power believed was already served? If this is at all possible, then how do we know what our purpose is? Or are we just some small organisms living in something much bigger? We see the universe as never ending. The way a single cell sees the rest of the world. Who is to say that we are not just something remarkably small in something much bigger than we thought?

Not only does our life have to serve a purpose, but we have to find a meaning somewhere in it too. Is there a secret to revealing it? I don't think so. The meaning of my life plays out everyday. Whether I am fighting with my husband or holding my baby for the first time. Whether I am drinking a cup of coffee or doing something I hate to do. I don't think I have found all the meanings and purposes of my life yet. I think when I do is when I should be afraid. I want my meanings and purposes to go on until the day I start another journey, the day that I am gone from here.

To be happy you have to know who you are and realize their are no secrets of happiness. You have to find happiness in yourself and everything around you. The best thing to do is "Live like there is no tommorow." Live everyday to it's fullest and realize that life isn't perfect. You have to do the best with what you have....and that my friends is what I truly believe.

I know this post is TOTAL rambling. I have just been wondering lately what we are here for. Have you foudn all the meanings and purposes in your life?

On other notes! I started a playgroup this past weekend and have tons of people that have joined. I have two other moms helping me and i have to say it feels GREAT being part of something and organizing something. Lately I have been sitting around bored as crap. I almost forgot their was a world out there!

Heroes, Lost, and Powers of the Mind???

I really liked that new show "Heroes" that came out Monday night. I liked it so much that I watched it again last night. It is really up in my alley except if it goes into comic books. I am not into comics at all. The show reminds me of LOST for several reasons. If any of you know me, you know I am ADDICTED to LOST. All these characters are connected in some way and all run into eachother at one point or another, not realizing they all share an extraordinary secret. In the show Lost- everyone is somehow connected, or so it seems. There is another show out called Six Degrees, which I have not seen, but from what I know is about connections. Is Primetime trying to tell us something? Maybe people are more interested in Sci-Fi then we think?
I am into thrillers for sure, but I never thought I was into Science Fiction. It seems like these shows that make me think really interest me. Another comparison with Lost-goes back to the whole connections thing, is on this show their seems to be small clues and things that are a little more obvious than LOST, but definitely there. Also, on LOST, they showed a comic book a couple of times, where it seemed like the LOSTIES were in the book- on the show HEROES- it seems that all these "Special" people are in drawings or comics.
Did I lose anyone yet?
I believe that people can hold special talents. I believe in telekinesis and mind control. I also believe in spirits, and that some people have a sixth sense. If you are open minded like me, you might believe this too. It is people that aren't open minded that just brush things off as coincidence or always have some explanation for everything. I believe that we only use a certain percentage of our brains and if the barrier is broken, and we figure out how to use the rest, we may have some powers that people don't believe in. There are people in history who carried powers that people didn't believe in, such as Jesus Christ.
So if this is possible, let's just hope that everyone doesn't figure out how to use these powers all at once. Then the world as we know it will be over. Course I wouldn't mind having some of these powers!!

How many of you bloggers watch soap operas? I am addicted to many! The main ones I watch are Passions, Days of Our Lives, and The Bold and The Beautiful. I don’t have much drama in my life, so when I watch these, it brings me to a fantasy world that I can get all the drama I really need. I get all giddy wishing my life was a soap opera at times, because my life is pretty….hmmm….dull maybe? Not that I don’t love what I have with my family- because I do. I just lack all the excitement that some people have I guess.
So my question is, what do you think about soap operas? Do you watch them? Do you think they are stupid and are just never ending stories? Would you ever like to star in a soap opera??

New template

What does everyone think? Is it too colorful? It matches my website and I was going to use this somewhere else but decided to try it out here.

Sorry I have been MIA. I just have been concentrating on some other things besides blogging. Hope everyone is doing ok!
