My Life Ain't So Bad.....

I was looking back at some of my old blog posts and I must say, I have had a pretty interesting life. From this side it can seem pretty humdrum and non-exciting for the most part, but when I read some the things I have experienced, I think, "Hmm, I have done some pretty cool things and had some wonderful experiences." I think it is the "grass is greener" syndrome. We tend to think that other people are having tons of fun and their lives are so great and our own lives suck! I know I have those thoughts all the time. But, I have been a part of some really cool things. I have been flown to L.A. to shoot a commercial with my entire family. I have worked in movies and television for 14 years. I have had a well-known actor tell me that I have a gift and that I should pursue acting as a career,(still trying to wrap my head around that one) I have been to a wrap party of one of the most popular shows on television and hob-nobbed with actors that I truly admire. I have had a $40,000 car driven to my doorstep and left with me for the weekend,(just to try out). I have sat in the movie theater alongside the Great Roger Ebert and written a review for a movie. I have traveled to the Bahamas and swam with sharks(accidently), been stung by jellyfish and been cut by the dorsal fin of a red snapper. Which resulted in me having to dodge barracuda that were attracted to my bleeding arm. I have had a 2 pet squirrels. I have also had chinchillas, 2 lizards and I even had a stray dog give me her eight puppies in the middle of the night one by one so they wouldn't drown during a heavy rainstorm. I survived brain surgery AND a craniotomy. I had my nose broken with a sucker punch to the face. I had a c-section without anesthesia( I would NOT recommend this one at all) I have been almost electrocuted, I have been badly burned and I have delivered several children with very large heads without any drugs. I have fed a tiger cub a bottle, seen a stingray "fly" out of the water, wrapped a 14ft python around my neck and I have been present when two people that I loved so very much took their last breaths.

I am sure there are more that I could list, but I will try to remember and save them for the next time that I dare think, that I haven't had an interesting life. I am blessed. I may not have achieved all that I wanted or even scratched the surface. But, I have been given some wonderful memories to help me realize that my most life changing and awe-inspiring moments have been unplanned. They were gifts and events that the Creator chose for me to have. They haven't all been happy. But they have all carried me to this moment right now. How incredible is that? I bet if you went back through your life, you could find some crazy awesome memories to relive as well.

I had no idea what I was going to write about tonight and I can't even tell you how this post came about. I guess it was just waiting for the right time to come forth and this was it.

Life is funny like that, isn't it?
