Do you ever find that inspiration comes from the least likely places? I got home from dinner with one of my best friends and turned on my TV to find The Lizzie McGuire Movie on Disney. Confession: I am OBSESSED with all things Hilary Duff, ESPECIALLY Lizzie McGuire.
I adored Lizzie McGuire. I so appreciate when television is well-written, and I thought this show was exceptional. I loved that she was so pretty and so awkward and that it tackled real issues while still being age appropriate. Hannah Montana does not even compare. Most of all, I love Hilary Duff and that she's the sole survivor from her generation of child stars. She's sober and engaged. You go, girl!
I like listening to her music because it's clean, poppy, fun and every song has a great message. "I Can't Wait" always makes me smile. And right now, no matter how silly or naive it may sound, it defines my life to a tee.
Sometimes all you need is a good friend and a glass of wine to pull you back. It's hard to stand still when everything around me is changing. Often I feel as though I'm being left behind and it's all falling into place for everyone except me. I have to remind myself to take a deep breath, to be patient, and to keep doing what I'm doing. Through the haze of heartbreak and the ubiquitous uncertainty, one thing remains true.
I can't wait.
