One would think my life would be glamourous. It certainly has the possibility to be.
But between the rare afternoons spent sipping lattes while listing Etsy items, or the casual lunch then shopping trip ... it's mostly hard work. And STRESSFUL. (Not to mention expensive.)
Not that I'm complaining ... because ... my goodness ... I would be willing to live in just about poverty in order to continue this life.
It's the little things that make me less than happy with some days. Like health insurance ... and having to deal with 401(k) decisions, and long-term care insurance ... and estimated tax payments. GAH!!
It's like, why can't I just catch a break from the universe, you know? It would seem that's I'm allowing myself to be lead by my heart and my dreams ... and that type of leap deserves some sort of payoff, right? Maybe it just takes a while :)
SO. As I am enjoying my first latte-filled afternoon in more than a week (BLIZZARD) I am going to think of positive things about winter to cheer me up.
Feel free to add to the list:
1.) no annoying little bugs ... like gnats
2.) sweat is kept to a minimum (except when shoveling snow)
3.) the Olympics!! (some years)
4.) Natural rosy cheeks from the cold = no need for wearing blush
5.) You can see through the trees where there used to be leaves
6.) Cute accessories like scarves, mittens and hats
