OMG, where to start

For some reason I’ve forever obsessed with the thought of normalcy. It is a constant measure in what I do. Having said that I often delight, no relish the idea of doing things that I perceive are not normal. In an effort to convey these thoughts that I have I thought I would start out with the definition of normal! Well guess what? There are so many definitions given : normal as a noun, technical normal, legal normal ( I was once told that it is considered normal if more than 50% of people do it) my favorite is social norms, I just couldn’t wrap my head around it because it just said that normal isn’t really possible because what is considered normal is always changing depending on time frame and location.


So now we have established together (or maybe you already knew) there really isn’t any such thing as normal! I’m always in great shock when I find someone other than my family that agrees with me! So I’m thinking there is just a bunch of groups of people that have similarly crazy thoughts running around in their head and the most similar just gravitate toward each other. (and that, ladies and gentlemen is my man theory)

On any given day (Google has no consensus) we have bet ween 50,000 & 70,000 thoughts!! I’m sure mine is double that but in addition to all these thoughts you have to add in ideas

“Difference Between Idea and Thought. … Idea refers to a plan or a process that occurs in the mind in relation to the completion of a work or duty. Thought on the other hand is a mental process that keeps on going in the mind unabated. This is the main difference between the two words idea and thought” -Scribd

I am full of ideas, plans, and lists all day (especially in the shower , solution: whiteboard in the shower!) in my head but I rarely write them down! So I am constantly driving myself crazy trying to remember them. At any rate I have discovered the real issue for me is action!

“As important as creativity and idea creation are, they require action before any idea will have real value.”-innovationsolutions

So I’m on a quest to figure out how I can get my ideas past the idea phase

Dirty Dancing aka ask anyone that has ever known me what my fav movie is!

I was 11 years old when this movie came out! For a preteen this confirmed that no matter where 2 people come from, they can overcome the odds, fall in love and make the sexiest scene (mostly clothes) that my young eyes had ever seen!

The summer after 8th grade I literally watched this movie on VHS  every single day! (people still know what that is right?}

At 14 I just knew that one day I would be sitting somewhere and my “knight in shining armor” would swoop in and grab me:

“No one puts baby in the corner”

I bought this movie on Vudu last night because as you know I’ve been with my granddaughter all day everyday since the 23rd and she is best behaved when music is playing. img_20180819_2041331500980552550626783.jpg

While watching I realized why I loved the movie to begin with: The entire movie is about beating the odds. Ok, it does help that there is music, dancing, sexy people in sexy scenes and that my brain still ties this movie to all the happiness (cheap thrills) that the movie always gave me. It was right on the line of appropriateness for a 11-14 year old girl in the 80s. Not that I actually had those kind of rules but in my head I thought I was getting away with something watching this movie!

While in the shower (where I do my best thinking/remembering this song/ scene came to mind!! Love Love Love it:

How do you call your loverboy? Oh loverboy, my sweet loverboy and if he doesn’t answer? Oh baby, my sweet  baby…..

Sadly Jennifer Grey didn’t get to do much after this and Patrick Swayze passed away in 2009 but I genuinely appreciate the part this movie played in my growing up! For some reason, in spite all the negativity I grew up with this movie gave me a place to go, a place where people prevailed!

Of course you can’t be a Dirty Dancing fan without “I’ve had the time of my life”
