The Pursuit of Happiness


August 24th, 2008

I wasn't built for this. I was created a little differently I suppose.

I am sure there are more of my kind out there… but I feel they are too afraid to expose themselves. We are seen as traditional, conservative, unrealistic… We are the few who have not given up on our knights in shinning armor.


Not to say that we have never wandered, or been tempted to settle for less. We have spent years trying to become what we have been told we should be.


We have been told that chivalry is dead, and that prince charming will never come. We have been told lie after lie, and so many have chosen to believe it.


We have adapted to "Today's Standards" of how a woman should act. "Don't be too fat, or too thin. Too dark or too light. Don't be too sexual or too chaste. Too smart or too dumb. Be yourself, but make sure you fit in."


We are told not to wait for "the one", but to find him. To track him, and hunt him down. We are told that if he won't pursue you, then you must pursue him.


It's the 21st Century after all. Ever wonder why in all the fairy tales, you never see Cinderella searching the entire kingdom for a prince, or Sleeping Beauty fighting the dragon? Cause that is not the way its supposed to be.


I am tired of chasing after this thing called happiness. I am tired of being the "guy".


I was created to be pursued, romanced, and swept off my feet. I need a little more of that in my life.


For the first time… I'm going to let happiness find me.

What is Paigerific? I’m glad you asked, although I don’t have an exact definition to offer. Paigerific is my thoughts and my heart. Paigerific is my passion and my fear. Paigerific is my success and my failures. Paigerific is my blood, sweat, and tears. Paigerific is more than just simply word. It’s a million different words all rolled into one. Words like hope, grace, determination, imperfection, love, faith, insecurity… The one word I would use to describe myself? I am Paigerific.
