It’s two days after Christmas. The ruckus has died down. The kids are all content – and getting along. It’s remotely quiet in my house. I am sitting in my bed, watching netflix and youtube, and yes – simultaneously (I’m good like that). But I kept saying to myself, do something productive. Don’t waste your day. You need to blog. So, here we meet again.
Now, when you are completely being lazy – it’s hard to think of a topic. And I just looked around – and realized there is my topic. This weekend is my topic. I went to Publix today, to pick up a few things. One of those items were chia seeds. It took me forever to find them – but when I did – I felt like I ran a marathon – and won it! Why? Because I found them without asking anyone. So there is one little personal win.
For those of you who know me, I love yoga. Pitaiyo. Mediation. I burn incense. Yes, I have a touch of hippie, granola kid deep down in my heart. I have a tattoo of the “om” symbol. I like to stay at peace and relax. And throughout my practice, I am able to do that about 80% of the time now. Yesterday, I went to World Market. And I found the most amazing scarf. It’s a huge, huge scarf- almost like a blanket – that hangs to my ankles – and it has the “om” symbol on it. And….. wait for it….. It was on CLEARANCE! It was like it was meant for me. So, I roll into Publix, with space leggings, a blank long tank top, and a huge “om” scarf blanket thing draped around me. Did I look silly? Maybe. Did I feel fabulous? Definitely….
I have been practicing the winged eyeliner for awhile now. Today – I nailed it. Quickly. Finally. Like in the amount of time it takes me to put on normal eyeliner. I can be taught.
I say all this to say – this might seem like a little boring blogpost today. But, It’s a little list of somewhat unimportant wins, but wins – nonetheless. Take heart in your little successes every single day. It might just be the success of sitting down and watching a show on Netflix. Or completing a blog. Or having the confidence to wear something that might not be fashionable – because it makes you feel amazing.
So, before the new year begins… Try to find some downtime, and take a minute to love your individuality. And just be kind.
