Lately...and Exercising the Opportunity to be Selfish

8.29.2014

Sometimes I write...sometimes I don't, and it's the times in between I think "lately" posts are more than necessary.  So without further adieu...

Lately...

...I've been trying to enjoy the positive aspects of summer and not rush it along 
as I typically do around this time of year.

...despite not trying to rush summer, I've been on the hunt for the perfect oversize cable knit sweater at a price I deem appropriate.  It seems as though this will be a long, often painful search. Wish me luck.

...I've been playing it safe with books which results in reading the Divergent series for the fourth time.

...being more organized is high on my "to-do" list.  See what I did there?

...I've wanted to be outside as much as possible. I cannot get enough of early morning/evening walks 
with the pups.

...I cannot stop listening to "Shake It Off."  Though I've never made my love for Ms. Swift a secret, 
this song is not going to be remembered for its lyrical substance.



***************************************

A somewhat mid-year resolution I unofficially made was to be more free with my words.  I don't mean to not recognize their worth, but to not over analyze every syllable to the point of making them worthless.  Writing and reading can be liberating if approached in the right way, and really, I shouldn't care as much as I do if everyone reads my words.  This is where I can be selfish.  This is my space. It's my voice.

I want to carry through on my promise to myself to be brave.  I will be more purposeful with writing in this blog and exercising this opportunity to be selfish.

Happy Friday and cheers to a long weekend!
