Gone With The Wind and Fried Green Apples


I've been thinking a lot lately about risk taking. Remember the movie Fried Green Tomatoes - and Kathy Bates had just taken enough - and she takes her car and crashes it into a car that 'stole' her parking place. When asked why she said, "Because I can". She got to the point that she just didn't care anymore. She had taken all she could - she was good long enough - and then came the time she decided to just be herself. Ah, wouldn't that be lovely? To just breathe and just be who you are.

I think or I feel that we try to keep who we are and what people expect of us in in tow - until one day a breaking point comes and we break. Every one breaks differently. Sometimes the break is good and sometimes I suppose not so good.

But I do believe that there comes a Towanda moment in everyone's life - don't you think?

"Until you've lost your reputation, you never realize what a burden it was or what freedom really is." ~ Margaret Mitchell

Freedom. There is all sorts needed out there. Have a Towanda day . . .

Unfortunately, I drop the f-bomb when I have my breaking point...no matter who is around. It's sudden, deadly, and then it's over.
I don't stay mad, I blow, then diffuse instantly like a balloon.
I always feel so bad when the f-bomb comes out....but, in a way, it's cleansing.
Maybe I need another word to drop.
Love today's entry...Let's make a point of being TOWANDA all damn week! TOOOOOO-----WANDAAAAA!!!!

Being yourself -- WHICH self, Chatty?!

We have so many facets.

From Lord of the Rings, the Lady Eowyn to Aragorn: "...May I not now spend my life as I will?"

Aragorn: "Few may do that with honor."
