There Is A Lid For Every Pot and Other Things

"There is a pot for every lid " is a quote from Amy Poehler's nana. And my feeling about getting back on the horse again or trying to write again.

I'm suppose you're wondering what this blog is going to be about? Me too! No, I'm only kidding. I want to write a blog today about a some of different things that have been swirling around in my head for a long time. So here goes.

I'm trying to make a comeback today, because over the last few months I have written very little. I could give you the excuse that I was busy, that I had a major operation, and I was out of commission for a while, or that I find it difficult to start writing again after a long break. All of those things are true. But it is time to get back on the horse, as they say. When I would use the statement that "they said this or that", my ex-husband would say who is they? I never had a good answer, or I just couldn't explain it well enough to please him. Maybe that's why I'm not married any more, too many questions!

Which brings me to "there is a pot for every lid." Now I don't know about you, but I love that expression. It was actually made by Amy Poehler's nana. Amy is the wonderful comedian from Saturday Night Live and Parks and Recreation,

She recently wrote an article that I read on MSNBC.com about body acceptance. Most women never think their bodies are good enough, looking only at our so-called flaws.

Amy suggests that "sometimes a good way to help yourself get out of it, is to have some gratitude. If you can go around your body and kind of thank it for what it gives you and thank yourself for your great eyesight, or your thick hair, or your nice legs, or your strong teeth or whatever it is that you have, that you were given."

Amy who just separated from her husband, touched on the subject of love. She mentions the quote from her nana, "there is a lid for every pot and that we all deserve love and that we will get it."  Those words are so hopeful. So now we just have to go out and find the pot that matches our lid.

I have more things swirling, but I'll wait for another time to share them with you.
