Yeah its almost Friday, its been a busy week for me, I don’t know about you. As always my kids and my practice has kept me busy. It’s been a while since I have joined, Amanda, from Running With Spoons for her weekly link up, “Thinking Out Loud”, but today I felt compelled to. Ever have one of those weeks were random thoughts keep on popping into your head? This is how I am feeling this week. So I wanted to tell you about a couple of my random thoughts, if you do not mind
My Random Thoughts For this Week:
Kate Hudson– last night I went to our local book store, Bookends, in Ridgewood, NJ, and met Kat Hudson (who was signing her new book, “Pretty Happy”). The line was long and we had to wait outside in 35 degree weather. It was so cold that my friend, who came with me, ditched me and went to the local bar to have a drink. While on line (alone), I met this cool guy, who has the same hobby as I do, celebrity stocking. He told me some cool trick for meeting celebrities and so I am going to try them out.
Anyway back to Kate, I of course posted the above pic on facebook/twitter, and I was surprised about the comments that people posted about her. “Wow it looks like she really plumped up”, and “She looks affected”. I have gone to a lot of book signing, (self proclaimed celebrity stalker) and was impressed at how genuine she was, there were no airs about her. She was just there with her hair back in scrunchy and just talking to people. After seeing all these comments, I started to think about why we tend to judge?
Dr. Brené Brown– If you are not familiar with Brené Brown, she is a research professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work. She has spent the past thirteen years studying vulnerability, courage, worthiness, and shame, and she has a new book out called Rising Strong. I recently downloaded the audio version on Audible.com. For the audio version she is the one actually reading the book. Anyway in the book she talks about having the courage to be vulnerable. She also talks about when a person does not have the courage to be vulnerable by to their past hurts, and instead they inflict that hurt onto others. I actually have been subjected to this type of hurt. Have you ever experienced this, where someone hurts you because they have been hurt?
Do you ever have random thoughts?
