Is it really over?
We all seek action, drama, that something to "keep us going" as my friend once called it..
As we get older.. Those precious moments of everything new, a new crush, a new job, a new love a new car, tend to wear off.. We run out of firsts and the rush of excitement we usd to get from them..
Me and my friends (all married now) had a get together and went through what we think is the problem with us right now.. Why aren't we as high on life as we were a few years ago.. Ah to be 21 and devoid of scepticism and cynicism..
And we came up with this.. We simply lack action, that umph we used to get when we hang out and discuss a new relationship, job mishap, outfit, or breakup.. It was the drama that kept us going.. That made every day special.. In its own way..
But if we are finding it hard to settle down after setting the bar so high pre-settling down.. How are all those women doing it?
One of the girls suggested that "they get their kicks out of pregnancy.. And raising kids.. And basically having their lives revolve around the upbringing of healthy well bread individuals into this world"
But this can't be the only solution!
We, all four of us, are working women, with a full time job and extras, we spend time with our families, husbands, gals, department stores and shoes.. We do all there is to do.. But there is a void still.. Where our stories used to be..
And then one of them jumped in: I watch noor!
She went like: it has enough drama to keep me going!
So with this I ask you.. After a certain age, when ur fresh out of firsts.. What do you do to get ur dose of drama?
Or should it be a thing in the past, and the present is better left still, sans ripples?
- to drama queens everywhere xx
