I found these two things at the bottom of a beer last night just after I totally LOST IT while I was sewing sequins on paper and trying to get painted stripes to be "perfectly straight, but have character and nuance with perfectly flat starts and finishes with no notice of flow". Riiiiiiight. Sometimes I am totally baffled by my own ability to get into tight spots. (AND sometimes get out of them.)
WISDOM: Be yourself. I raced around town looking for something white to wear to the white-out evening at the Altitude Summit and while trying on white, see-through skinny jeans I remembered: I don't do group acitivites that well, I don't wear white, and I hate getting spun out about things like this. AND I WAS SPUN OUT. So I will wear a white scarf that I already have and all will be good with the world.
HUMOUR: Chill out. I ALSO noticed that I seem to have a pile up of things to do before EVERY trip and it's getting old. I freak out. I overpack. I FORGET to pack important things. I try to reinvent myself fashion-wise. SO RIDICULOUS. I dialed that back, listened to some comedy radio and felt a lot better.
Today: I'm TOTALLY going to the US to mail things and pick things up. I'm picking up my mom from the airport. I'm getting groceries. I'm getting packed. I'm already missing my girl tribe and Dan and I are going on a date tonight to reconnect a bit. Perfect day.
