I have this quote framed in my apartment, but it’s on a dresser in my bedroom that I’m only around when I’m straightening my hair. Like you needed to know that. Anyways, this quote is from Carrie Bradshaw on an episode of Sex and the City:
Maybe mistakes are what make our fate… without them what would shape our lives? Maybe if we had never veered off course we wouldn’t fall in love, have babies, or be who we are. After all, things change, so do cities, people come into your life and they go. But it’s comforting to know that the ones you love are always in your heart… and if you’re very lucky, a plane ride away”
The quote this morning obviously made me think of my friends. Now the other day I raved about the girlies in my life, but I failed to mention the A.MAY.ZING. guy friends that I have. Now you’ve heard a bit about Brandon (whom I adore), but there are so many others that deserve to be recognized. In essence, I’m a lucky girl. Not only do they put up with my shenanigans and mood swings, but they make me a better person. Okay, enough of the gushy stuff. My friends know that I love them and how important they are to me.
Let me first admit that I’m not the most productive worker today. I’m really thinking that it’s going to be a 2 Venti Soy AmeriMisto day, especially if I want to get through double spin class again tonight. Anyways, seeing the Sex and the City quote today has me wishing (yet again) that I was living a Carrie Bradshaw- lifestyle. How great would it be to have your day job be as a writer! Actually, I think that in my ideal life I’d want to be a writer & a Child Life Specialist. In all seriousness, Carrie Bradshaw, I envy your life. However, if I were you then I would have never gotten rid of Aidan- especially choosing Big over him. Also, I don’t think I’d be seen in half of your wardrobe.
I don’t think I can end this posting without formally declaring my love for Aidan Shaw. I’ve claimed this territory before, but now I must do so here in the blog world. As my friends know, I am an Aidan kind-of girl. I mean, come on, how good does he look in this photo! But it’s not just his looks that captured my heart. Fictional or not, Aidan is the perfect example of a guy whose personality makes him more attractive. He is a guy’s guy, but also with a heart of gold. While I was devastated by Carrie ultimately choosing Big over Aidan, I realized that she just wasn’t worthy of Aidan. Carrie is my favorite character on Sex and the City because I relate to her in a lot of ways- at least more so than the other characters, especially Samantha. But even with that being said, Carrie was not right for Aidan. To put it best, she wasn’t good enough for him.
Why am I saying this? Well other than the fact that my mind is everywhere & nowhere at all today, I’ve been thinking about guys, crushes, love, and all that jazz today. As Adriana knows, I’m experiencing my first crush in a long time… and while it’s nice, it’s also a bit overwhelming because it’s been awhile. I was second-guessing myself this morning, being a girl and thinking (why would he like me back?), when I got an email from Adriana. Seriously, she and I must have ESP or something now. Her email stopped my doubtful thinking by saying this….You deserve this, K… don’t reject him. I’m serious, I will kick your ass if you do that. Don’t doubt yourself.
She’s right, and I know this. After all, I believe I deserve an Aidan. And from what I know about him, he’s definitely an Aidan. ♥ K
