The House of Hale 2013: Pt. 10

35 Which celebrity/public figure did you fancy the most?

Not a single one. There are too many greedy people that have “earned” celebrity status for bad behavior and I refuse to support them. I’m sure they’re not ALL bad, but the ones dominating the public eye right now are trashy and shallow.

 

36 What political issue stirred you the most?

What political issue did NOT get me riled up would be an easier question to answer. I am so fed up with the two party system. Nothing will ever change as long as we keep going back and forth between the two, which are really just poles of one agenda.

 

37 Who did you miss?

lol… Oh this is quite a loaded question here, isn’t it? A little, yes. Mostly though, I missed myself. Okay, so that makes me seem like the biggest self absorbed jerk on the planet, but let me explain. lol. I miss the person who I was before marriage and motherhood. Adjusting to that change, kind of putting that part of my identity to rest and adopting my new roll really sent me through quite a bit of nostalgia. There were a lot of crazy things that happened to me in my younger days, but there were also a lot of amazing things. They kind of came hand in hand, but before I had been so focused on the bad things I kind of missed out on the good things. Once I got the bad out of the way, it was nice to reflect back on the good things for a change. To see myself as more than “just a mom”, and “Kevin’s wife”. I missed the Kelli who was young, reckless, dangerous, adventurous, spunky, and crazy. That person is still a part of me, but she’s been pushed aside with responsible, mild mannered, mother Kelli. It’s for the best, since I need to be alive and not in jail to raise my kid, but some days I miss being a free spirit. This year more than others.

 

38 Who was the best new person you met this year?

My daughter. It’s true, I didn’t really meet her, so much as watch her grow and observe her budding spunky personality. She is definitely my kid, that is for sure. Lol.

 

39 Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2013.

I pretty much said it in that post there. I don’t need some one to complete me, I need some one to complement me. It was quite an Earth shattering paradigm shift for me. Especially when the whole philosophy of “Soul Mates”, your perfect MATCH, the one who COMPLETES you, is so prevalent in our society.

 

40 Quote that sums up your year:

I don’t have just one… but I think these two really sum up not only this year, but who I am as a person.

 

“At times she was strange and dangerous. Mostly she was sweet, scared, and harmless.”

 

“She’s mad but she’s magic. There’s no lie in her fire.”
