When I was growing up my life was all about changes. Changing locations, changing schools,and changing friends. Nothing ever stayed the same for long. That was my life and I never knew any different. That was until I got a taste of the other side. Not changing.

Of course, I didn't get to know how that felt until I was an adult but it felt great. I liked the stability. I liked having the comfort of knowing that this is the way it was day in and day out. I guess that might seem boring but when you grew up the way I did it was more a blessing than anything.

Now, I might could say I have a wee problem with ANY change at all. Cutting my hair off? So scary! Buying a new car? Worry, anxiety, eek! Changing jobs or even my schedule at my job? Don't even go there! I mean anything and my brain goes into stress mode over change!

Why is that? Change can be a wonderful thing. I just need to learn to let go and embrace it like I did when I was just a child.

Oh, to be a child again.

My Poem About Being Sick

I'm a big baby when I'm sick.
but I have no one to baby me.
Someone get me some soup.
Please, just a little soup
for my soul
and my nose.

The end.

Paring Down

I was doing a little browsing on my favorite clothing websites. It is what I do when I'm bored. Most of these have wishlists on the page and I just fill em' up. Some I will eventually buy and some I won't.

I actually don't need to buy anything but that is my thing. I like clothes. I am clothes horse.

It dawned me that I actually have way more clothes than I need. Some still have tags on them. Some of been hanging around for awhile. Kind of sad life these clothes are living. Dontcha, think? Beautiful clothes that need to be worn but they aren't.

I think I have decided that for the next 30 I am going to embark a little project. I'm going to attempt to wear a new outfit every day. No repeats. I think this will help show me what I skip over and possibly what I need to sell/give away.

A few exceptions will be made.

1. Jeans/pants - I don't have 30 days worth of pants. I will have to repeat these.
2. Off season clothing - I can't obviously wear my sweaters and jackets in 80 degree weather.
3. If I wear something that can be used for a totally new look. Just as long as it isn't the same outfit.

This should be interesting. I think it is going to be hard not to reach for my favorites. Maybe I will find new ways to wear them. Maybe I will rediscover some long lost pieces.

We will see.
