“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” – Dr Seuss
It’s been a really strange day. In fact strange is the wrong word to use; stressful, unexpected, infuriating, disappointing, nauseating, upsetting… any of those fit. And to top it all off, I feel super ill but I told Dana I’d post today so here I am… lying on my sick bed, sticking to my word.
This wasn’t what I had originally planned to put up but I wore this outfit to dinner on Friday night and it made me smile…a lot (revert back to the image above for visual evidence). I could really do with smiling right now so looking at a picture of myself where I was happy, in a dress and heels that bring me what others would probably consider an abnormal amount of joy, does it for me.
I can’t be the only one who does that right? Look back at certain pictures of a time where you felt and looked good and thus invariably cheers you up because hey, life really isn’t that bad and neither is your wardrobe! (Thank God!) Only me then?… No?
There is no deep and meaningful point to this post except to say that life is going to give you lemons… Repeatedly. And in said instances you may just want to grab a bottle of tequila, put on that dress and those shoes that make you feel like a badasss and dance around your apartment to your favourite tunes – preferably something with a lot of bass – but only if you have a decent sound system, otherwise don’t ruin it for yourself! I frequently do this, sans tequila though as I’m not a fan but it would have ruined the metaphor and lemonade is so passé.
But I digress. Dinner was lovely and we went to see The Book of Mormon afterwards – that production deserves a separate post of its own entirely! The night ended at The Mayfair Hotel for a friends 30th birthday drinks. All in all, good times were had by all.
And would you look at that… I feel better already! Writing is so therapeutic. Tomorrow is another day and I’m optimistic it’ll be better and if it’s not, I’ll try again the day after!
