True, right? This feels like the month I'm having. But it is sweet.
Happy Friday Boob and Lingerie day, my loves.
I got a massage yesterday and the masseuse asked me if I "struggle to relax." I was like "girl, you have no idea."
My current dark side, or an element of it, is my extreme discomfort in my current life. I made a huge necessary career shift including a cross country move and it's been so much. I can see why people do this in their 20s when they're completely unsettled and they don't give AF about anything. In those times (and I remember them vividly) everything is crazy and unsettled so it's all ok. In my 20's I could get drunk, have a hangover and get over it. I could gain 10lb, go on an insane crash diet and lose it all in a week. I could work jobs for no money, live off of ramen noodles and turn the heat off in my apartment when I couldn't pay the bills. It was all ok. I simply didn't know any better
In my 40s, on the other hand, I'm SO IMPATIENT with this learning process! I gave up a really well paying job and a cool lifestyle to take this job. I don't regret the decision because it will lead me to other things that I want but right now it's a major step down. Especially financially. I'm now back to some of my 20's lifestyle, the working for no money part particularly, but without the metabolism or the alcohol tolerance. Essentially, I'm living an uncomfortable life and searching for coping mechanisms. But like... cheap ones.
It's fine. It's fine. It's fine. It's a first world problem if there ever was one. Plus it's a completely voluntary life change so I have no one to blame but myself.
I finally watched Homecoming on Netflix and was (again) filled with awe at Beyonce's work ethic, vision and discipline. Combine that with the battle of Winterfell last night and it's been a very good weekend for bad ass ladies!
Ms Violet has been running a meme called Lingerie Is for Everyone and I've been wanting to participate so today feels like a good day for that. Click on the badge below and go admire the rest of the lacy silky deliciousness on display.
Happy Monday everyone!
