Pull it together …

After a crazy month I feel like I am finally reeling it all back in. Life has calmed the heck down. Or, probably more likely, I have a better grasp on the life season that we are in. I like this feeling. It’s like everything goes from completely unraveled to being more closely knit together and stronger. Life can be pretty awesome that way.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you pull it together!!!

Young at heart …

Last night some of my sorority sisters and I went out to celebrate the life of our dear sister who passed away two years ago. It was a nice night reminiscing and just being together. We all needed it. I know that I certainly did. In our discussions we talked about our younger years, the struggles we have faced, the decisions that we have made along the way and happiness we have chosen to find. It’s funny, despite the years that have passed and all that has changed, so much of me has remained the same. And I like that. I still feel like that college girl on most days. The one with hope in her heart and a smile on her face. The one who wanted to look back across her years and be able to tell epic stories to her grandchildren. As a 50 year old woman, I can honestly say that YEARS and NUMBERS mean nothing to me. And what does matter to me is my health, making sure that I walk through life with genuine and authentic souls and not letting bitterness take ahold of me. If I can sneak in some fun in there, find some joy, follow a few passions and gain some wisdom from lessons learned along the way, then I don’t see how I can ever complain.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you feel young at heart!!!

Happy …

Today was a good day. Sometimes that doesn’t involve a whole lot for me. Just sitting in my own skin, doing my own thing and feeling good about it is really all I need to put a smile on my face.

Well, I hope you all had a day that made you happy!!!

Thinking too much …

I was up pretty late last night and for some strange reason, this morning, I woke up SUPER early. I even gave myself permission last night to “sleep in”. Whatever THAT looks like to a typically early riser on a normal busy Friday morning. HA! Anyway, I also woke up WHOLE body tired. You know that feeling? It’s definitely NOT pleasant. UGH. So my question to myself is WHY? If I’m THIS tired ALL OVER and I can get a little extra sleep, then WHY THE HECK am I awake?!?! I blame my brain. Oy.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you don’t think too much!!!

Cold and hungry (ALWAYS) …

In the midst of the chilliest winter I can EVER remember in California and during a time when I am expecting more from myself physically, I have come up with a new and accurate way of describing my whole being.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you aren’t ALWAYS cold and hungry!!!

(Wardrobe) confusion …

I was absolutely freezing this morning. We had a pretty cold rain for us. We were in the 30s where I live and that is really unusual. But not as unusual as it was to be snowing in parts of Southern California like it did! Weather craziness! Anyway, my life long avoidance of the cold had me prepared. I was wearing a shirt with a sweatshirt over it, a scarf, a jacket and boots with socks. I was PREPARED!

Until I went and got a manicure and pedicure.

It never occurred to me that I wasn’t going to be able to put my boots back on for a while. And I had errands to run! So there I was dressed from head to toe for epic winter weather … wearing flip flops. What could people have been thinking?!?!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you don’t look (wardrobe) confused!!!
