Live the life you’ll want to tell about.
So I nabbed this phrase from the work bestie. Who nabbed it from a sign on a fence or something. As a disgruntled newly formed adult, it’s so easy to despair because things aren’t how I projected it to be. I can mope about I’m not married, don’t have 2.5 kids, and let’s not even talk about my lack of the proverbial picket fence. But, then, when I am there….what will I be able to say about these days? That I whined for majority of my twenties? That sucks.
So with that said, life…get ready to be lived.
But who’s to say I won’t want to tell about my Netflix and wine marathons? They are still pretty impressive in my book.
From some of the random thoughts I’ve absorbed from others and the few moments of clarity that have occurred in my life, I’ve realized happy is not just a state of being that happens upon you every once in a while. Sometimes, you can be happy simply by reflecting on the positives and resolving to be happy.
With that said, here’s a positive of today. I had coconut bubble tea and I am happy.
Try it. See how you feel.

She wrote it, flawless.
Look, so I suck at remember to do new things every day. Bite me.
I guess the theme for this writing will be Painfully Aware.
So my job got us these Jawbone bracelets that track
everything our steps and sleeping patterns. Needless to say, in addition to my awareness of steps taken (not many, no surprise there) I also realized I am simply awful at sleeping. I wake up all the time, I deep sleep but don’t deep sleep a lot. I need to be in bed a good 10 hours just to get my 8 hours in. Last night, I had a little whiskey related success but I hope to not have to make that my norm just to catch a couple Zzs.
Why is it when I become aware of things, it’s usually painful? And it usually involves having to change something that is innate to my current existence, which is also painful.
Alas, ignorance is bliss, sometimes.
