I am on the verge of letting everything go. Life is hectic, sources of stress are numerous, and people are generally all-round confusing. All I want to be able to do is to get ample sleep, get a great workout every day, and eat healthily. Is that too much to ask?

Winding down tonight with this Chet Faker jam.

Sundays are for Etta James and soft music and resolutions.

For a while I’ve been in limbo about certain things, certain people, because I thought somehow, the wrinkles would smooth out and everything will fall in its place. What was I thinking in wishing for that place of perfection, idealistic visions and happy resolutions. In fact, life doesn’t work that way. We are time-inconsistent beings who sacrifice ourselves, our values, our beliefs in the long term because of the sheer strength and allure of the desires of today. My wishes were such desires projecting themselves upon the future, but failing to see that my actions of the now was only detrimental for my long term happiness, self-worth.

I gave myself too easily and hoped things would be reciprocated, that I could form a genuine bond based on trust, friendship and such. Yet I think he only saw me as a momentary distraction, someone who didn’t deserve the respect or the care that any individual deserves from anyone else. And I’ve come to the terms that he will never see or treat me in this light, because while do change, they do so very rarely.

It’s time to stay away from those who are toxic, and to find those that light me up, restore the empty fuel in me.

I wore this white Reformation dress with black tights, boots and a coat a few days ago. Then I got so sad and frustrated about the fact that we are nearing the end of March only to be still dealing with snow on the ground, ice pellets hitting our faces every morning, and the glunk of wet grass that is unavoidable and wince-inducing. Oh, New England. Why did I even choose you in the first place? What was I getting into?

Anyway, I decided to imagine what I would have been wearing if the weather was a little more reasonable; I’d start off by taking off the tights and putting some summer sandals on, as well as a bag to tote and no wintry coats in sight! I can’t wait for the weather to grow warmer so we can enjoy those beautiful spring nights and prance around in white dresses. Fingers crossed!
