Things I never needed

I never needed that curly…..really curly perm back in the 70’s. That was hideous! It may have been the “it look” at the time but it certainly didn’t work for me then, now or ever! More reason to stay true to what you have been blessed with. Also, a constant reminder to never attempt to be something your not….. I tried for wavy hair and got “Annie” instead. If I would of just waited long enough, all the curly, wavy in style look would of diminished in time. Straight hair was soon the new “look”.

Keeping with the “hair” theme…. I never needed my bangs cut with Christmas scissors when I was a young girl! That was a mistake, although my mother didn’t think so. The worse part is, my cowlick was more pronounced! If she only knew!

I never needed those extra pair of shoes that were on sale. Those were a waste of money, even if they were on sale. That says a lot because I love shoes! In thought, I could of used the money for something I actually “needed” or for something that my children could of needed (SIGH).

I never needed to wear high end clothing just to look and feel confident. What matters most is how you feel about yourself on the inside. Being confident in who you are, just as you are, is the best outfit you can put on everyday of your life! Sweats, jeans, dresses are “cover-ups”. However, I don’t  ever want to cover up my authenticity. Regardless of what I wear, I allow my soul speak with confidence thorough my eyes as well as my smile. How about you? Fashion is not only material. Fashion can be in “you’, on the inside.

I never needed to question my judgment,to second guess. I always knew the answer. Intuition. It never fails me. I must learn to trust it!

I never needed to be so hard on myself, the world does enough of that already. Forgiving is not so hard, but forgiving myself is. Life is tough enough at times but I learned to accept the things I can’t change.

Can you think of a few things you never needed? I bet you can!

Live, love, honor and laugh out loud! Prioritize you.




About Cassandra Pavolic

As a retired performer for 25 years transitioning careers has been difficult. I truly enjoyed my career as an aerialist performer. I was fortunate enough to see the world, traveled many places and met people from all cultures. I learned a tremendous amount about life and people during my years traveling than I would in a school setting. The one thing I took away from being on the road is that no matter what ethnic background you are, we are all so similar. A smile is a smile in every language (happiness or contentment). Expressions of all emotions have the same meaning around the world. For this reason we are similar, and I somehow find that comforting. I'm now 50! It's hard to believe I'm fifty already! I reflect on my accomplishments as well as my failures up to date. Both are irrelevant to what I value most. I value people and relationships. I value my deity, it is the number one thing that keeps me stable. Being true to myself is a portion of my "food" in regards to my decision making. When I steer away from being my true self I am disappointed. Exercise, taking walks, and being still are another source of "food" in my life. I like to be still, listen and observe all things. I have been this type of person since a young child. Perhaps one of the reasons why I take an interest in Personality Psychology and my recent studies human behavior. I hold an Associates degree in Music/Theater/Dance from Dean College in MA. I quickly realized I wanted to perform, therefore my journey began immediately after graduating from Dean. I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist, as well as a Certified Personal Trainer. I am curious, I am persistent and I am passionate. I'm on a mission to be a better person, to help those who want to help themselves, and to share my thoughts, opinions, experiences to anyone who gives a damn. All in hoping that what I have to offer will change lives as you learn to keep your priorities in order. And so I started prioritize you.
