“… and they saw it, not as an empty space but as a magician’s pocket, full of possibilities.” - A Casual Vacancy
I thought about that quote yesterday while watching an episode of Sugar Stars on the Food Network. What does a quote from J.K. Rowling’s new novel have to do with a T.V. show about event sweet tables? Nothing really, BUT I thinking about life as a magician’s pocket (oh J.K. Rowling, I knew the magic wouldn’t be gone forever), so many wonderful things can happen.
Take my dad’s cousin Antonella Grillone, she’s one of the stars on Sugar Stars. When I asked her about the show she said to me, “I was discovered in my forties, I was a cashier and really didn’t want to do that job. So, I did my comedy act until I was discovered. Sometimes I lost focus but I knew it was going to happen and I have the same feeling for you.” Antonella just goes to show how FULL of possibilities life can be and how believing in yourself (and working hard) is a very powerful kind of magic.
Another thing about yesterday, I found myself rushing out of the house more so than usual. I didn’t even towel-dry after taking a shower. My clothes were sticking to me, I felt damp – I was driving around with a damp ass for crying out loud! It was gross.
Then the lightbulb in my head turned on and I realized that there was no need for me to RUSH! Why am I always rushing around when I don’t have to? It drives me insane that I can’t sit still for a moment or take my time when I do things. Maybe that’s why my brain has been friend the past few days.
They (who are they anyways?) always say, you learn something new every day.
Yesterday I learned two things and today I’m going to be optimistic and slow the &%*# down.
P.S. My (boyfriend’s) cousin Steven Palumbo, started his very own fashion blog. He is AWESOME and hilarious. Check it out: Until I Became
