I think one of the ways that I’m like Rory is that I get hung up on the little things. This is illustrated perfectly during the episode called “The Lorelai’s First Day of Yale” The girls walk into Rory’s dorm. Lorelai is trying to point out how cool it is and all Rory can do is worry about getting rid of the old mattress, ripping her map, finding a replacement map, and noting the emergency exits.
Lorelai pushes her out of the room and tells her that she is missing it and they are going to do this right. She tells her daughter she has to savor the moment. Sometimes we all need to be pushed out of the room and made to start over. So this year, I’m going to try not to miss the things that are really important. Has Gilmore Girls inspired you to make any resolutions?
