I Didn't Remember That I Loved This Mama Cass Song!
Last night was the season finale of The Middle, a hilarious family comedy. Sue Heck graduated from high school!! Sue is the middle child who never gives up and always has a smile on her face. She tried out for everything and didn't make anything. She created her own cheerleading squad for the wrestlers with a band of misfits. Kids at school didn't know who she was even after four years of high school. I got teary eyed watching her montage. They played this Mama Cass song which I have not heard in a long, long time. I had really forgotten about the song.
But I knew every word.
Why did I start to cry at the end of the montage? I went around with a smile on my face all the time like Sue. I don't know if I had perseverance (?) but I'm learning to be like Sue now! You have to follow your own pathway, especially if the normal or regular one doesn't work for you.
So now I'm making my own way and sometimes it is very lonely. I don't fit in with a crowd. Whatever a crowd is anymore? There are things that I just don't care about anymore. But it's come to my attention that I must do it my way. That is the only thing that lets my soul sing. And once your soul has sung, you can't go back. You can't do what doesn't work anymore,
Here's to the year of Sue and Making it your own way however and whatever that is!
