My Vision

I feel like I’ve been complaining a little.  My computer sucks, I hate my glasses… but I never seemed to do anything about it.  Truth be told, I hate spending money.  I could be considered a stage three penny pincher.  When I eat out I try to be as inexpensive as possible (a.k.a. a cheap date) and shopping is a constant battle…do I buy the shirt or save the money?  I can convince myself out of any purchase.  It’s gotten to the point where I actually feel embarrassed about it.  While I’ve felt a little miserable with the state of my closet/home/computer, I decided to actively pursue everything I drool over instead of missing my chance at them.  It is tough.  But I can’t change and make myself better if I don’t work toward it, right?

I ordered the Apple laptop that I’ve dreamed of since seeing my sister buy her first desktop years and years ago.  It arrives today.  I also finally bit the bullet and ordered some try-at-home frames from Warby Parker…I took everything into consideration and made my selections thoughtfully.  I purchased a ton of Ralph Lauren Denim & Supply (p.s. there is a sweet deal on their website) and I’m crossing my fingers that some (if not all of it) will work out.  I managed to find some shirts at our local Macy’s that are just my style.  And when we went shopping in St. Louis last Wednesday, I actually got myself into dressing rooms to try stuff on (a major achievement in and of itself), though nothing ended up working.

It is safe to say that my journey is no longer about discovering what I want to be, but just finding the things to support it.  Which makes me incredibly happy…or better yet, downright thrilled.

Changes will be occurring soonish with the blog too.  I’m trying to make my vision come through with every aspect.  Hello, better Facebook page and tweets and pins.  It’s all inclusive for me at this very second, and I can’t wait to get it going.  It’s definitely more of what I want than anything else, and don’t I deserve to have my blog be just that?  I think it’s a given.
