Desert Heat + No Drama LOOKING BACK 2013
Looking Back: Originally posted on July 25, 2013
Wow, was I already so in tuned at this stage in life?
Even in the hot desert sun,
I must stay true to my style eye with printed shorts and sheer top from NYC.
Sandals are Calvin Klein.
These are pictures from the National Cactus Park in Tuscan, AZ.
I was young once...still young in many eyes...and I toiled on the meaningless drama because it excited me. I gossiped, I spread rumors, I laughed at others coldly, and I smiled at other's misfortune. Now, I have filled my free time with my career, family, and all things progressive in my pursuit to maintain a comfortable life. When "drama" happens, I observe it and my instant thought is to be involved, but then I think, "Is this how I would want my daughter to react?" or "I wouldn't want my son to be interested in women who act out irrationally." And I step back and move on with my day knowing that even though I may have not said anything, my silence spoke volumes on what kind of woman I have become.
Even with men, I have stepped away from the drama. Since I started to meet people, I have been more aware of things that I would have made a big deal of before such as, him looking as his phone several times during a date, noticing other women, not showing genuine interest in me, etc....I've just decided to digress from a man who does things that I know will not sit well with me long term. If it seem he is not interested, I continue on.
