A blog is born.
Welcome to my musings on pop culture and parenting. I am the Pop Mama and this is a safe place to steal away from your screaming child and get your fix on what's up with Beyonce and great poop stain remover tips.

Well, that is that.

People never cease to surprise me, inspire me and well, to be honest, disappoint me.  I am not easily shocked and I tend to anticipate things pretty well, but sometimes my expectations in others clearly exceed their own capabilities.  I say all of this not because it is the same truth that seems to smack me in the face every now and then, but because there is a good side of it too.  The inspiration, the surprise, the awe of the human spirit.  When a disappointing thing happened in business this week, I had the normal rush of anxiety, but when I spoke to my loved ones and trusted friends, I was in awe of how they all saw the situation's silver lining and the positive of the temporary annoyance and pain.

When it comes to being me, I am trying to live with the encouragement that all I have to do is be better than I was yesterday.  I can do that.  I will not sink to the level of others.  I will not return evil with evil.  After all, a smooth sea never made a skillful sailor...oh, and as one of my role model's Tina Fey would say, "Know what? Bitches get things done."
