Garage Sale/"I call it a lesson learned..."

I feel like those radio station personalities... on Saturdays, they are always live from some dealership, trying to get people to come out and see them...

I'm Miss Malorie and I'm spending my Saturday live from my front yard with plenty of deals... come stop by and say hi!

Okay, so maybe not so much radio personality, but I am actually having a garage sale today. It's my first one, so I'm a little anxious. Besides it being my first garage sale, it's in my nature to get anxious about things that I am a part of. I take everything personally and get very bent out of shape very easily about things that I am heading up. Not necessarily the best personality trait, but it's certainly mine.

It causes me to think about how the little things in life can easily show you who your true "friends" (I like the term "people," it encompasses everyone--friends, lovers, family, etc.) are. I am a person who practices fierce loyalty... I know I'm the type of person who will go above and beyond the call of duty to show that loyalty for my people that I love with all my heart, and I feel like these types of things show you who will do the same for you.

For instance, a friend of mine made it her duty to drive over to my house with her family to check out my sale, and a couple of my neighbors, whom I haven't actually shared that many conversations with stopped by when they saw me sitting outside. Not to mention the efforts of my mother, who got off from work and went right to helping me set up, find more items to sell, etc.

That all being said, I'm well aware of the fact that I can be very quietly though quickly judgmental of people whom I feel should have loyalty toward me... but still, it's funny when you find out who will stand up for you, and who won't. Whether it's a performance you want people to come to, a garage sale, or a different kind of event you've planned. If you give life a chance, it will show you who your people really are.

And funniest of all is when the people who are really there for you are less familiar to you than your good good "friends."

Thanks to all my real, loyal, true people. You all know who you are. And you should know that I love you and will ALWAYS be there for you. Always.

Okay, going back to my garage sale now. And yes, I know I have loyal people who cannot come to the garage sale today. No, it doesn't make you any less loyal. I just had to say that because I know my words have had a habit of being taken and twisted and misunderstood... but maybe I won't have that problem anymore since I'm eradicating non-friends and lunatics from my life. Hmmm.... one can hope, right?
