I usually enjoy winter, but so far this winter, I haven’t been its biggest fan. Yes, the snow was fun, but it’s the real feel temperature and the lack of light I’ve been hating. I walk to work and one of my goals was to walk every day to and from. This is sort of a pain to do when I have to bundle up like Randy in a ‘Christmas Story’ and practically run home because I’m afraid of the boogie man jumping out the bushes at night. BUT, tonight as I was leaving work, there was light! I was so excited, I felt like I just won the lottery, I was talking out loud about how awesome it was to see some light after work (and from here on out!). Being the crazy person that talks out loud might just scare off the boogie man from jumping me, so today was a good day!
I was so excited about the light, I even bundled up and went for a 2.5 mile jog. Amazing the things that will inspire you.
On a random note, I’ve been inspired to make a small change in myself. Sometimes I can be quite a slacker when it comes to my appearance, mostly during the week. What can I say, my workplace has such a casual attire, why wouldn’t I choose jeans and a ponytail over slacks and doing my hair. I realize I won’t always be so lucky with my job, so with the start of the new year and all it might be a good time to work on a change. Basically the child inside of me wants to play dress up! I want to wear skirts and dresses, high heels and pearls. This might be a little bit of an adjustment, but hopefully once I incorporate some clothes in the back of my closet into my normal rotation, it will be a bit easier.
I’m finally embracing the fact that everyone has their own sense of style and I need to let mine shine.
