I had my own little private Camelot for awhile. Life was grand. It was a magical time. I had tons of friends. I had a great guy. I was a cheerleader. I seemed to be good at almost everything I tried – dancing, acting, academics. I absolutely loved my life. I was happy and life worked.

And then we moved.

I might have done better jumping off a cliff.

I had lived in a few places previously, went to different schools in various parts of the country. But I had never before experienced cliques.

I went to Urban Dictionary to make sure I was spelling clique right. This is what they had to say: “Clique – Why i wish i wasn’t a teenager – A group, typically of teens, who exclude all who don’t fit into their stereotypical image of perfection, and conform to all the rules of this “perfection”. Often think they are showing outstanding originality and individuality, when they are in fact exactly the same. And this is the same for all subcultures. Usually hate “opposing” clique for no good reason other than they perceive/have been told that this is the right thing to do. Like to label people, so they don’t have to regard each human as an individual.” (I love Urban Dictionary, its the only place I know to look for what all those goofy little initials mean in text messages)

I went home in tears practically every day for almost a year. No matter what I tried – how I dressed, what I did, who I talked to, what I said, it just never seemed to work. I was miserable.

My heart and happiness were somewhere else – stuck in a tiny town in New Jersey. And slowly over time all those I loved in New Jersey began to write less and less and eventually not at all. Out of sight, out of mind I decided. (This was, of course, before cell phones, text messaging, live chats on Facebook, the internet, and email – a time when long distance calls were expensive. So we wrote letters. Too funny! No wonder we lost touch.)

It’s not like every single moment of every single day was terrible. I had many great times too. I made a few good friends. I went out with some really wonderful guys. I created numerous fond memories.

But rejection and having people say cruel things to and about you is a hard thing. I eventually learned to be cruel back – which was even worse. Being unkind is fundamentally against my nature.

I just couldn’t wait to get out. So, I moved out of that town and into my own apartment the day after I graduated from High School.

And as soon as I got out, the magic began again. I soon had many new friends. I met a great guy and was engaged almost immediately. I had a job that I enjoyed and it paid well. I was getting a degree from a great school. I was President of the student Chapter of the Institute of Industrial Engineers at Virginia Tech. We had 300 members. Obviously to hold a position like that, I had attained a certain level of popularity.

No-one’s life works all of the time. But it can always be more magical and more fun. Sometimes the day to day can be difficult and we lose our zest and passion for life.

We all want to be happy and to have our life work. That’s why I make the products I make and offer the technologies I create.

Do you remember a Camelot time in your own life? – A time when you were happy, you were acknowledged and appreciated, and your life seemed to work. It’s time to reclaim it now with The Essence of Camelot and the accompanying CD by Richard Shulman from which it was created.

Camelot Reawakened is an awared winning CD with full orchestra and vocals. The melodies and musical soundscapes literally take you into a magical place.

With or without the music, the essence is fabulous! Life seems magical when you are bathed in that frequency. It is one of my favorites. Synchronicity seems to increase. I always get better parking spots when I have it on. And it puts me in a great mood. A friend of mine put some on before giving a massage. She was exuding such a happy presence that her client said, “I want some of whatever you’ve been doing.”

Let’s all get back to Camelot, shall we?

    If it is the type of music I’m thinking of, it is exactly what I love to listen to. Anything with a irish or medieval tone is what relaxes me the most.

    Always such inspiring posts. It is important to create wonderful memories and to celebrate all the stages of our lives. I think we all have times that are more exciting than others, where we feel more empowered and in control of our circumstances.

    I love the idea of Camelot and reflecting on the happiest time of my life.It may sound trite but I do feel that right now is one of my best times. I need to focus on that and check out the essence of Camelot so I can capture it and keep it going

    Hello Takara, I think I’d like to bask in some Camelot. I’d like to hear more about what some of the oils can do for you. I will take some time in the next couple of weeks to read more about your products. Blessings!

    Given I’m 75 years young, I have many years to scroll thru. Somehow none of them fit the bill of ‘Camelot”. I love my life and have in the past, but it has always been on my making it what it is. Do enjoy learning about you.

    Thanks Miss Takara! No… “no one’s life works all the time…” I’ve found out that it’s not what happens to us that is that important…. it’s HOW we go through it. Our mindset, our attitude, really makes a HUGE difference in the process. Great post, my friend! :)

    My magical camelot year growing up was my Senior year in HS. That was the year I felt like I came out of my shy shell. I was voted ‘most beautiful’ in my class. I was chosen as ‘Carnival Queen’ for the Senior class. I was Vice-President for the Senior class. I landed a leading role in the Senior Class Play. I made 1st chair, 1st clarinetist in the District Band. I was Salutatorian of our graduating class. I started dating my husband that year, became engaged and married 2 months after graduation. It was fun to go back and remember that year… thanks for the encouragement to re-engage my memory.

    Great Blog Takara! I remember when I was in school there were also cliques as well. I was not in one of those cliques. I had a few friends and one BEST FRIEND that I still have to this day. We have been friends since we were 5 years old. But I wasn’t liked much cause I was the Fat kid in school. I was taller and over weight so when I went down hall ways I could see the kids staring or making fun of me. Over the years I feel the best times of my life have been when I had my son who is now 22 and when I got married last year to the most amazing man in the world. He loves me for who I am inside and out and excepts my son as his own son! Thanks for sharing!

    I feel so lucky because I am living a Camelot time right now! I love working for myself. I just moved into a house. I have amazing man. And this is from coming through terribly tough times – a job I hated, a broken marriage and subsequent divorce. But I can have my Camelot because I truly reflected and l learned from this difficult time. Is life perfect? Well no – but it feels like the most magical time ever! Thank you for sharing this post!
