I’ve never been one to have wonderful luck, although I do count my many blessings in my life. However, over the past few years many parts of my life have, well, given me headaches. I know that they’re God’s way of testing me and teaching me lessons and helping me grow, but it can still be rough. So you know Murphy’s law? Basically the idea is that anything that can go wrong will, and my best friend and I have both experienced this to such a grand extent at times that we call each other Murphies.
2013 started off on a great note – a wonderful New Year’s Eve, beginning my new treatment which significantly improve my life, and traveling back to Nashville to begin student teaching. Student teaching has been a wonderful experience so far, and I know that I will learn and grow so much from it. But in other areas of my life, the past two weeks have been very Murphy-ish.
So what do I do? Even though I must spend my Saturday night doing work, I pop in Pride and Prejudice.
Jane Austen has always been an escape for me, and seeing this beautiful reproduction of one of my favorite novels of all time never fails to improve my mood. The 6-hour BBC production is also wonderful, but I tend to reserve that for days when I’m sick. In the musical The Drowsy Chaperone, Man-in-Chair improves his blues by popping in the records of his favorite musical. I do the same, but with Jane Austen. What cures your Muphiness or blues?
