Dear Universe, You Suck


The Universe sends me messages. I drank wine so I didn’t have to listen. Since being sober, I like the messages the Universe has been sending. All is well, heading in the right direction, kind of noises.

What you resist, persists. I just read that this morning. When that message was about – do I have a drinking problem? – we all know that answer – a huge drunk fest happens to let ya know – uh duh!

So when every (well, like it seems every) blogpost, book, movie, story, talks about abuse I am not pleased with the Universe.

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty. I loved this book. I am now going to read everything she’s ever written.

Jodi Picoult made my heart sing and ache with House Rules (she nailed my life with an autistic teen.) Seeing what I do naturally as a mom to my son, truly looks different when you are looking in as a reader. We did House Rules for book club and the ladies asked me if it was really as hard as the book portrays. I was kind of shocked. Did it look hard?! It’s perfectly normal I thought.

When the movie Fargo came out people were making fun of the accents and styles in the movie. I completely missed that is was a comedy. This was just normal. You betcha! Pass the casserole.

So, I read this book Big Little Lies laughing out loud as she nailed these moms perfectly! So funny! Spot on! I was a compilation of most of the moms and I just smiled at what fun this was to read.

Then…ouch. A charcter starts to question the validity of something she thought was normal. Kick to my gut. It’s not? This is what the Universe sees?

  1. I think I understand this ! That if you’re trying to avoid or stuff something , the universe keeps laying it at your feet !
    And that it DOES apply to you ! Even if you thought it had nothing to do with you ?


  2. Liane Moriarty is my absolute favorite right now. The first book I read was What Alice Forget, loved it so much I’ve read everything so YES YOU MUST. Big Little Lies was amazing, was that the one with the “blond bobs?” hahaha! I thought about that when I was getting my haircut!! Now I’m all caught up:( Please, Liane, write us another!!

    • Thank you!! I have Dear Opl sitting on the arm of the chair, page 142, I started reading this morning and can’t stop. I asked my library if they would order it but they said their budget cut meant no teen books for a while. I told them no way girlfriend! My copy will be donated this afternoon.
      I showed my kids your name on the cover & pointed to this response and said – See, that’s the Universe talking. Miss Opl will now get to live here in the heart of Iowa in a little library where she can tell her story because of a blogging connection. How cool is that!
