More quality time with HBO on Demand led me to watch Pitch Perfect . The movie is about a washed up college acapella group, the Barden Bellas, trying to earn their first win at a national competition. Part of the reason the Bellas couldn't win was because they kept singing the same tired old version of Ace of Base's 90's hit "The Sign". Now the catchy tune is etched into my brain and I'm sharing it with all of you. You're welcome.
Danity Kane made the term "damaged" seem so tantalizing. Feeling damaged after a relationship is complex. No one wants to feel like the groceries left on the back of the counter at the supermarket. There's nothing sexy about that! Emotional distress can feel overwhelming. Our psyche tends to deal with it in a few different ways:
Oh Lady Bey, how I love thee. Let me count the ways.
No. I'm not a hardcore fan that believes Beyonce's music will someday end world hunger. However, there is something to be said about what a good anthem will do for your soul. Songs like Single Ladies, Irreplaceable and Run the World (Girls) are like instant mood elevators. Even her Destiny's Child hits are classic anthems. If I'm having relationship problems or just want to feel good, Beyonce is typically my go to.
We've all done it. Pictured our guy with a white picket fence, 2.5 kids and a dog (substitute a betta fish for me because I don't do animals). That dream sometimes transcends reality. We hold onto it, bank on it and even pray for it. My bff has her full wedding planned after the second date. The inside joke is that we'll all find ourselves in a bridal fitting for a wedding that the groom knows nothing about!
