Happy Wednesday good lookin!
Apologies in advance if this post is scatter-brained.. this week has been cray.
Aside from my existing job title at work, I recently took over management of our Heart Lung Clinic. The opportunity is amazing, and teaching me new things every day, but dang … my caffeine intake and use of anti-wrinkle cream has increased ten fold. Each day has its own special feature of some insane, completely random situation that would typically never happen but somehow happens with me (it is a full moon week after all). But, each dose of crazy has taught me so much in terms of managing people and patients. You take the good with the bad, and cherish the good.
This past weekend was my five year wedding anniversary as well as Charlie’s 35th birthday, he still looks 25 that lucky guy! As shared in a previous post, we have been separated in terms of distance and briefly, our marriage. The military life is not for the weak or weary, and made even more challenging when your careers carry you to different places. We have lived apart for the past 4+ years, whoa! At one point, I considered a future on my own and then eventually with someone else. This person made me laugh, brought me out of my shell and momentarily gave me a glimpse of the life I thought I was missing out on. Keyword thought. I’m the kind of person who analyzes everything, including the reasons which events/people come into my life. Spending this weekend apart gave me a lot of time to consider past choices and examine the reality facing me. As I said previously in a post and will say again, Charlie is my catch and continues to leave me in awe. He loves me despite my flaws, blunders, and momentary misgivings. I tell you all this because for the longest time I was so insanely angry with myself .. to the point of not loving myself. We are all human, life happens and we make mistakes. We’re allowed to make mistakes, as long as we learn from them. Boy, did life show me those lessons and where I belonged.
Transparency is something I HUGELY believe in as well as self love. I share my imperfections with you because as I type this, I am validated in the love I have for myself, despite my mistakes. I hope you all know it’s okay to be imperfect and love yourselves all the more for it.
NOW.. as I mentioned in the title, let’s talk clothes! Have you SEEN the new fall pieces from Morning Lavender? Dying.. I can’t even begin to choose. I also found this beautiful yellow floral off the shoulder dress, earrings and sunnies there! check them out! I’ll post my new faves soon!
