I was a bit of a rebel when I was young, nothing dangerous just more like I found it boring to stick to the rules, I love to push the boundaries, to test myself and nothing has changed.
It is an amazing thing to be older and wiser. I look at how I handle situations now and I am so much more rational but the me that was evident as a child is still there she has just grown up and possibly chooses 1 reaction over 3.
Back in the day all my reactions to negative times in my life were physical. I would say hideous things to someone if they annoyed me, damage property (that I owned.. I was not THAT bad), deliver a note I would regret or just act out in some other manner.
These days I channel that energy into going for a run, finding the clarity to structure a big change business wise OR if I am having a particularly craptastic week (and this is the bit that hasn't changed) cutting my hair into a bob, re doing my fringe, bleaching it a stupid colour or planning some new ink..
I had a bit of one of those the other week (Marcus was away, it was end if term so kids were emotional, work was busy and bills were on top of me) and the only thing that made me laugh was I caught up with one of my favourite peeps and she was in the same position just 7 days ahead of me and had already booked her haircut.. Kindred Spirits were shown to me once again...
So whilst my week has passed and all got better now the school holidays are kicking my butt and I am pinning divine tattoo images (just little ones)... and am having to hold back the scissors but I know that won't last because when the anarchist arises I just can't put her back in her box...
Are you just like your besties? What are you like when you have a case of the uglies? Tell me you still act out?
