I Wish I Was Natalie

Natalie and I were roommates back in boarding school. She had a nice house and wonderful family while I suffered with my unruly family. I wanted her life so badly and wished to god that I could be exactly like her, but no, I had to be me, Claire, a non-boyfriend having athletically challenged tomboy who could never see why she would want me as her friend.  As we came along in school, I began to see less of her. She started to hang out with other rich kids who were sons and daughters of whoever was hot at that time.  I came into my own eventually and actually enjoyed being me instead wanting to be what’s her name? Oh yes, Natalie. We say hello from time to time whenever I see her out somewhere flashing all her bling. Sometimes I still wish I was her.

Finding work and lost things found

I have been looking for work and hoping that I can find at place that has a good vibe. I know that work is work,but I want to at least like the place. I had an interview last week and unfortunately I did not get that job,but I have faith that I will find something. Keep on truckin' as Eddie Kendricks says right!? Anyway, besides that I have found my dvd of "The Secret" which I found miraculously on the day of my interview which was a trip. Then a few days ago I found my Van Hunt cd's!! I took that as a sign that things are turning around. Also, two of my tarot cards came up missing,but I found them. I have faith that things will turn out right for me.

No man no cry

A friend of mine asked if I had any prospects as far as guys were concerned and  I told her no. To be honest I have not had the desire nor energy to look. I am wanting more human contact with people,but men on a romantic level not so much. I am in these times discovering myself and building up myself positively, being comfortable with who I am and all that jazz. I believe that when I am ready the man or woman up there will guide me where I need to be to find that special someone.

My full potential

At times I feel like I am not living to my full potential. I look at myself and compare my life to others which is not a great thing to do since everyone has a different path in life. There are many things that I want to accomplish,but sometimes I feel as if they are unattainable. Don't get me wrong I am always the one with optimistic thoughts,but as I get older and older it seems like my twenties were not that eventful. I want to start living and not let money be a factor to why I barely go out and be around those my age. I am tired of being hermit like although I do enjoy my alone time. Lack of car is an excuse,but it is part of my dilemma here in l.a. Anyway, I just need to figure out a way to get out of my rut.

Scandinavian in a past life?

I remember when I was in elementary school maybe 3rd or 4th grade and looking up at the various cutouts that represented world countries. Out of all the places that were on display, Norway was a place that stood out for me. As I think about it now I wonder if I had a past life connection with Norway? Sweden is another place as well as Holland that I am very drawn too.

I don't know what it is about these places that captivate me so being that I have never been to any of these countries. Who knows maybe upon visiting I may have some sort of resonance!

designing t-shirts

I have been on this creative kick..well mostly in thought, about creating t-shirt designs and painting. I think I may want to pursue  those thoughts in my head. Since I am not working at the moment what better way than to spend time creating!

What I'm listening to

Recently I bought a few cd's (thanks to my tax rebate) and I am so happy with my purchases. I bought :

  • Jason Mraz - We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things.
  • New Kids On The Block - The Block.
  • Solange Knowles - Sol-Angel and The Hadley Street Dreams.
  • Janelle Monae - The Chase Suite.
I have been listening to my cd's nonstop and am truly liking what I hear! I am a big fan of music and it has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Music will always remain a constant in my life.

What are you listening to at the moment?

Across the Universe

Today I asked the Universe what is it that I should be aware of today and pulled Nine of Pumpkins from the Halloween Tarot. I had to laugh when I drew this card because on different occasions this card has popped up in readings. Out of all the cards this is my favorite. It shows a woman being financially independent and wise. I want my life to be lived as the lady in this card. She is self reliant and comfortable in her skin as well as environment I choose to be like that in my life..

I'm Writing!

I have actually started writing again after my procrastination period and feel great about creating. I have become active in an online writing community full of wonderful writers. This gives me the encouragement I need and I am so happy to have finally come more active in posting there. I think I may create a writing blog just for my writing. Stay on the lookout.

I am changing.........

Lately, I have been feeling very creative than normally and that is a good thing! Writing is something that I want to pursue as a career and I better have the passion for It's just that for the most part I have felt so drained by certain things and at the turn of this new years my outlook has shifted in great ways and I am embracing it to the fullest. I feel good inside and I pray that this feeling remains with me for the rest of the year and beyond.

Happy New Years and new beginings.........

This is a bit after New Years,but all the same it's a new year! This year I want to tackle all the things that I sleeped on the past years. For example jump starting my writing career with just writing more everyday. That is the major focus,but other things like going to the doctors for a check up which I have done yay! Go to the DMV, a job and other things as well. Start believing more in myself and abilities and letting life pass me by. Toward the end of this year another birthday for me will roll around and I want to at least get done with my goals for this year. Determination is much needed from me in order to have the life I truly desire. I will have it by any means necessary.
