The Frog Kissers

After a recent brutal and devastating breakup, a very good friend of mine gave me an incredible piece of wisdom. As I stand on the sidewalk emotionally distraught and broken down, she says to me “Sometimes we have to kiss a few frogs before we find our prince”. I bitterly told her, I don’t want to kiss anyone anymore. And in that moment I didn’t want to hear that there’s the possibility that my lips will be chapped, and my heart may be broken again. But looking back on that day she was right. I have kissed many frogs in my day, while I’m still not looking forward to kissing another I know that I probably will.

Challenges Begets Change

When I used to think about growing up, all I thought about was how I could do whatever I wanted all the time. I wouldn’t have to listen to dumb parents tell me I can’t ride the hover round in Wal-Mart. I wouldn’t have to ask them to drive the car. I wouldn’t have to ask them to do anything. Well, now I ask them how to do my taxes and why can’t I just put dishwasher soap in the washer instead of detergent. You know, the hard questions.

On the Outside Looking In

Growing up in Indy, we were conditioned by our surroundings to stay close with the groups we grew up with. We still call each other the North Central kids, the Carmel kids, the Cathedral kids. Rarely did anyone go outside of their comfort zone, because there was no reason to… you had multiple middle schools feeding into a high school, and a whole new array of people to get to know. As one who has been able to break the mold, it’s time I gave props to my new patna dem.
