My grandpa has Alzheimer’s so he has no idea who my grandma is but everyday for the last three or four months he brings her in flowers from their garden and asks her to run away with him and be his wife and everyday she says she already is and everyday the smile my grandpa gets on his face is the most beautiful heartfelt thing I have ever seen.
Frustrated. I am Frustrated at myself, frustrated at my situation, frustrated that I want solutions and support to just come to me, frustrated at people, frustrated that I am letting myself become so gosh darn FRUSTRATED.
—- “I don’t associate with people who blame the world for their problems. You are your problem. You are also your solution.”—Bridesmaids (2011 Film)—-
Bridesmaids is gold for so many reasons, but this quote… I want to adopt it and sometimes I want it to be turned around on me..like a wordy back hand slap to the face..I think everyone needs that sometimes. I don’t so much want to disassociate with people who blame the world for their problems…rather I think the whole second half of the quote, problem and solution, are the superstars here. Yes, some things are out of our control; but we have to realize what we can and can’t do and work with it! As much pouting or talking or avoiding as we do, often the end result is taking what you’ve got and rolling with it. You’ve got to be your own solution.
