Letting Loose

I am by no means a nerd.  Ok, I’m a little bit of a nerd.  I am asleep by 10:00pm most nights, can’t remember the last time I did something wild and crazy (what would this even be?) and am always the designated driver.  I can’t really help it though.  I’m just so damn responsible.  I always have been.

Responsibility is not necessarily a bad thing.  It’s just sometimes a boring thing.  Which, by the way, I am totally blaming my parents for.  Don’t misunderstand.  They never told me to be responsible.  Instead, they were so loosey goosey (yes, I said loosey goosey) and busy being less than exemplary examples that I had no other choice (still love you Mom and Dad).  Someone had to be in charge!

Back in the day my responsibility was complimented.  Adults were like, “You are wise and mature beyond your years.”  Now, I’m an adult, and other adults are like, “You need to relax.”  I totally agree… with both statements.  So, I’m going to continue to be responsible, but I’m also going to let loose.  Do relaxed, cool people say “let loose?”  Whatever.  The point is life really is too important to take seriously (I totally read this on a greeting card).  Here’s to the new, more fun, less serious me!

    dang Soni! you are so right – i hear the same thing all the time! I guess we both grew up with our versions of absentee parents. Nothing is worth not living your life, ya know. awhile back gramps and i were talking. i told him i wanted to buy a van and drive around the country for a few months. he just stared at me like i was crazy or something. then he said – you can’t do that! i was like, what do you mean i can’t? says who? our scary cat (yes i said scardy cat) family. so worried about it all.
    you are awesome and I’m so proud of you!
    loves jane
