Ass Backwards

8 Dec

As you can tell from my Pick Me! page, I made a note that I have an amazing ability to do things the hard way. It’s completely unintentional but for the most part it works out in the end. I can spend what feels like an eternity worrying about something and it turns out just fine. I think worrywart is in my genes.

“It will all be OK in the end. If it’s not OK, it’s not the end.”- Unknown

This basic principle has made me an optimist. It’s a gentle reminder that it’s OK to have moments of panic, worry and nerves, but that those moments will pass and allow you to move on. More power to ya’ if you are one of those cool as a cucumber type folks but I haven’t met many in my life. I’m only human and emotions are a package deal.

But like I said, I tend to fall in to things, both literally (way accident prone) and figuratively. My love of travel kinda happened on accident, how I became a “cat person”- we have rehabilitated about 5 ferals, and my love of literature came as a surprise because I was a troubled reader as a kid.  But I think we’re thrown surprises because it keeps life interesting. And even if I somehow take the long way, go about it ass backwards or jump in out of my depth, I know it’ll settle itself out.

To hell with instructions!

I got this.

Outta The Bag…

23 Oct

I’ve seen these posts all over the place and think they’re pretty neat. I once heard a woman say that she could rule the world with the contents of her purse. And while funny…it’s kinda true. So, thought I’d share my portable universe.

I carry a huge purse on most days- the better to carry all my crap. But this awesome bag was a present from my Mom, who also carries a huge purse :)

Bag: Kate Spade

Small bag: Vera Bradley







Strangely enough, this post came about when a WordPress post asked me if I like surprises. I like surprises, but sometimes I just like to be prepared, you know?

What can I say? I’m complicated.

And having everything I need in one place (my purse) helps me feel better about it. My bag within a bag within a bag usually covers all the bases.

I’ve got some bandaids, stain remover, mirror, chapstick, Aleve, zip drive, toothpicks, splenda, hair clips, safety pins and antibacterial wipes.

Now, I’m ready for anything! :)

Anybody else take their world with them when leave the house in the morning?
