A Phone Call

I got a call yesterday from my coworker's wife who works across the street from my apartment building. The receptionist who put the call through was acting funny. I thought for sure she was calling to tell me my apartment building was on fire or a CSI unit was staged out front. I picked up the phone:

(Slightly afraid) "Hello?"

"Are you still single?"

(Sighs) "Whew, I thought you were calling about my building!"

"No, there is this guy in my office I want to set you up with."

"Is he cute?"

(Without hesitation) "Yes."

"Is he nice? I only like nice boys!" (Bold faced lie)

"Yes. I really thing y'all will get along great together"

"Well okay then."

I hung up the phone and felt a sinking feeling in my stomach. I wanted more time to figure things out with me. I wanted to wait until at least the books I ordered arrived in the mail. But then again, no one has ever called me up before, wanting to set me up...

Just remember who you want to be and project that image. Stick to your resolutions and don't break your own rules! It's tough but you'll feel stronger for it. Don't go on the date looking for "Mr. Forever". Just practice being the new Sarah.

New Sarah?

Just be yourself.

I think that resolutions can help us to be new and better people. Altering you lifestyle can equate becoming a new person. To me, that's exciting and hopeful...that's all I meant.

I wholeheartedly agree with Jenni. Stick to your guns and have fun the rest will fall into place when it's meant to.
