Longing To Be Someone Else

Have you ever longed to be someone else?
When I was a little girl I longed to be a glamorous movie star. A lot of us probably did. When I got older, I loved soap operas and imagined the excitement of being a heroine or bad girl. Never a dull moment and these women always looked fantastic. As I matured, I started to admire strong women. Like the ones we’ve discussed here. http://bitchlifestyle.com/2010/09/carole-lombard-fiesty-and-fabulous/
Now? I find a fault with all the women I wished to become in the past. Things in their lives I would not dig.
1. Cleopatra: Someone always trying to kill her, then suicide by an asp. Yuck.
2. Movie stars: Always being under a microscope, gossip, no privacy. Yuck.
Which means I’d rather be me. Most of the time. (insert sassy smile here) That’s confidence. That wonderful state of being that’s sometimes hard keep in our day to day lives. But there is a cool thing about wanting to be someone famous. There’s something in them that you connect with. Here are five of my favorites and what I connected to:
1. Cleopatra: I was facinated by her ability to lead…the confidence she possessed.
2 Judge Judy: Speaking in a clear, bottom line way.
3. Carole Lombard: The life of the party, warm, witty, glamorous.
4. Elle Woods: Disciplined, warm, loving, always looking fabulous. Her personal initiative. She never judges.
I discovered what I loved so much in these women—were in me. Waiting to come out and play. Kinda cool, huh? So who do you admire and why? Is that a part of you that wants to come out deep in your soul? What ways can you help her come out? Copying a style? Taking a leadership class? Practicing speaking directly? That’s a lot to think about. Maybe just pick one woman and see what really turns you on about her and explore.
See…you really can have it all. (warm smile)
