It is interesting as you
turn 50 (for me, closer to 60, ugggg) to look back over
the different stages of your life. For example,my mid-life crisis time mentioned in the JOY POST caused me to literally shut down. Also, as a teacher who deals with students and parents all day, most days shutting down is the preferred option. Between stress and fatigue, I found myself for several years just desiring to come home every day and stay at home…..I had to force myself to go anywhere!
It is only is the last couple of years that I have begun to arise from this slump and now want to get out and experience life again….as I did in my 20s. At that time, I was the ultimate reporter desiring to go anywhere the job sent me. Now mind you, my family is going to have to see more of this to believe it…they are so used to me just wanting to be at home.
Therefore I pledge to everyone,in 2011, I will be out and about experiencing life!! I hope to share with you some great stories as I do this.
My outfit representing this priority just says fun to me!
I recently purchased the cream tiered tank at Avenue for $15! It is covered in metallic gold polka dots and I paired it with one of my Chico’s cardigans! I recently found the fun watch at a resale shop and the clutch at a garage sale for just $1!!
My jeans were half price at Coldwater Creek and I really needed new jeans. These are the Shape Me, Classic Fit jeans in the dark wash.
So, join me….find a fun outfit…and let’s get out of the house and enjoy life!!
