This isn’t really about decorating, but it does effect my thrifty treasures, so I guess that it is.
Have you ever had a person in your life that just sucks the wind right out of your sails? You know, that person that turns that confident woman that you know that you are to a quivering mass of Jello? Just one peek of their death stare makes your blood run cold with fear. Suddenly you feel less than, inadequate, about 5 years old, facing a bully and you want to run and hide? Do you have one of those people in your life?
I am not sure if I am describing the feelings that my old roommate gives me, but let’s just say that she gives me the screaming meemees. (not really sure what that means, but it is bad)
We don’t run into her often, but being a small area, it does happen about once a year. She has a habit of jumping from job to job, so I never know where she will turn up.
Yesterday, we had a chance to run into Goodwill. YIPEE! We walked in and who is wearing a little blue vest and putting things on the shelf? My old roommate. BOOO!
I said hello and she mumbled something and went back to work. I then looked at my guy, well, I gave him THE LOOK, and we left.
Then it hit me on the drive home, I am not going to allow this woman to steal my power. I am not going to allow this woman to ruin Goodwill for me. I am tired of letting this woman bully me, three years after I left her behind. I have bloomed into a confident, creative and funny Gwen and I like this Gwen. I am not going to allow this kill my spirit.
I don’t know how in the world she ended up working at Goodwill, but I wish her well. That doesn’t mean that I am about to give up a store that I love and run and hide.
So, that is my non decorating post for this week. Don’t let one itty bitty person steal your power. I am growing this week and I hope that you do too:)
