Seat Taken . . .

September 22, 2006

Someone I admire and respect told me some advice that I really need to take right now: Everybody doesn't deserve a front row seat in your life.

It's so very true and something hard for somebody like me to do. I mean I'm the same girl who tells the random chic in the grocery store about my most embarrassing childhood moments. . .yes my jumper skirt really did come up over my head on the playground and my holey draws were showing. No, I still haven't forgiven my momma.
It's hard to swallow, but not everybody wants to see you succeed . . .and that includes some people you spend time with everyday.
I have found that out the hard way over the last few days. People who try and slide in comments about my accomplishments when I know I work my ass off. People not knowing how to channel there feelings so they just hate.
I saw a episode of Making the Band 3 today (part of that senioritis thing:) and Betty Wright said some real stuff: It takes Sunshine and Water for flowers to grow. You cant have all Sunlight or the ground will be burnt. So with my frustration and hurt feelings, Im cleaning house.
I'm taking my therapist's advice and am kicking some folks to the back of the bus. To my haters, your front row seat in my life has been officially revoked. To my lovers, thanks for always cheering and evening screaming encore when I know I sucked.


*Make sure the folks in your front row deserve their seat!

    "Everybody doesn't deserve a front row seat in your life" I'm hanging that up in my room.

  1. Isn't it funny how a good sentance can catch your mind and make you think WOW, mindblowing and revealing... I would just probably add that maybe some people shouldn't even be alowed in to the theater, never mind back seats! I've learned that we should make sure our lives are like those exclusive celeb parties... by invitation only, and be extra carefull with who has backstage passes!
