It's taking me a while

It's taking me a while to realize I'm the boss of my life. I keep waiting for someone to tell me what's next, and every once in a while I remember, "Oh, that's my job!"

Like yesterday, I was bitching to my mom about the way certain things in my life are going. She looked at me and said (in that mommish tone -- and I mean that in the best way), "Honey...you made a mistake." Duh. That's why I was bitching.

But after I left her house I realized was that I was bitching to her because I was waiting for her to a) fix it or b) tell me what to do to fix it. She did neither, which is okay because I'm 27 and I shouldn't need her to fix my fuckups (and oh, you should see the beauties I come up with!).

I know this is just rambling babbles, but I feel a little relieved that yeah, I made a mistake and yeah, now I'm going to fix it. It sounds simple, but it made me feel so much better.
