Monday Musings: Compassion, Parenthood and Relationships

I really like writing my Monday Musing posts. To type out all the thoughts that swirl around in my head all week – it’s like my own personal Pensieve.  Today, however, I have so many half formed thoughts, I don’t even know where to begin.

So, while short, here are a few things I’ve been thinking about recently.

I saw Wonder Woman on Friday and absolutely loved it – maybe I should do a movie review this week instead of a book review. My favorite part of the whole movie was the creation of a character that, while strong and intelligent, is also compassionate and loving and how those characteristics add just as much to her strength as her physical prowess. I love the idea of compassion making you stronger. What do you think?

I’ve been thinking quite a bit about parenthood – no, I’m no where near that for myself. As people we have to wear so many different “hats” that make up our identity and it must be exceptionally stressful at times to be a child and a parent. Especially as you get older and have to care for your parent as well.

One last thing that’s been on my mind often are relationships. I’ll be the first to admit, I’m extremely independent, very much a lone wolf. However, I’m at an age where I try to fill my life with people who bring positivity. If a relationship begins turning toxic, I don’t invest in it anymore. So, the people around me now mean the world to me but it also makes me think that we invest so much in people and then if/when that relationship ends our hearts can be utterly broken. Morbid, isn’t it?

Anyway, these are the thoughts keeping me up at night. If you have any opinions, I’d love to hear them.
