New Year’s Eve

New Years Eve

New Years Eve

As the new year approaches, we all have a tendency to look back upon the previous year. We remember the good times, and the bad times. If we are lucky, the good outweigh the bad. I was blessed to have a majority of good times. I can’t honestly say that I know where the year went, however. It seems like just yesterday that I was toasting to 2012. There are friends that I made this year that I could swear I have known a lifetime, although it’s only been months. There are also friends that were closest to me that have now almost become strangers. I know that this is a part of life, but it doesn’t make it any easier.

In a year, we may fall in love, or at least think we have. We may also have people fall in love with us, and feel terrible when we can’t return that feeling. We might lose a loved one, or welcome a new one in to our family. We might start a new job, only to quit a month later and run away to L.A. and Vegas for a week. Yes, I did that. It sounded like a great idea at the time, and I had a blast, but I am still paying for it now. Literally. I can never forget those memories I made though, so I just thank God for the times that I had, and move right along. My point is, that many things happen in our lives, but it’s all a part of what makes us who we are.

Last night I found myself alone in bed, realizing that I was in a place I never thought in a million years that I would be. Four years ago I left a six year relationship, and I have been single since. I never imagined myself as a single woman, living alone, and in Texas, no less. It was last night I came to terms with the fact that I was a million miles from where I thought I would ever be. But you know what? I am exactly where I belong. I can’t wait for 2013 to happen, and to see where I am a year from this moment. I would be willing to bet it’s another million miles from where I am now, but still, somehow right where I belong.

The First Bloop

As we all know by now, life is made up of events. The good, the bad, the funny, the sad, and the slightly embarrassing. I would venture to say that I have a large file of embarrassing moments, but I love to tell a good story, so I don’t mind. This blog is titled “Britt’s Bloopers”, but it’s not just about the funny or embarrassing things that happen to me. It’s about life in general. My life, uncensored. After all, bloopers are just those moments that weren’t supposed to happen. They just happen to be funny. These are my moments, as they happen.

The compliment, (and I use the term loosely, yet proudly), that I get the most, is that I am “really something else”. I know I have a different sense of humor, and at times I am a bit awkward, but  also know that’s what makes me who I am. I often say what’s on my mind, even if I sound silly, and I wear my heart on my sleeve, accepting all possibility of it getting completely broken. And then I whine to my best friend about how much it sucks to care so much. That’s me.

I want to share with you the things that I think, and care about in my own style of humor. My sense of humor is something that has helped me cope with many things in my life. I have realized that in everything that has ever happened to me, good or bad, I have always been able to extract some type of blooper. Some of the things I talk about may teach you what NOT to do, and others, may show you a new way to look at a situation. Whatever the case, I hope that sharing my bloopers with you will help someone in some way. Think of this blog as your best friend. Someone who will tell it to you like it is, but hopefully, also make you smile even in the most uncomfortable situations.

Please feel free to share your moments, or feelings with me too. So much of what make blogging fun is talking to other people. 🙂
