Sometimes I’m way too disciplined. Like way way too disciplined. I know that doesn’t really sound like a flaw, but it is, trust me. Here’s the thing. I feel like I have a hard time having FUN because I’m so worried all the time about how many calories are in something I’m eating (even when it’s something healthy, which let’s face it, it ALWAYS IS). I’m thinking about what time it is and therefore when I should get home to start dinner so I can get to bed at a reasonable time. I’m wondering if I should buy something, or would it be wiser to save the money, or is there something else I should buy instead?
I was raised to be hyper responsible. Which is good, obviously. But sometimes people like me get so busy thinking about the right and best thing to do, that we miss out on the actual thing that we are doing. It’s hard to enjoy healthy food when you’re wondering if it’s too many calories and are my jeans actually getting tighter? It’s hard to enjoy what you’re doing when you’re thinking about what time you need to be done doing whatever it is you’re doing. But then, just try NOT thinking about it once you’ve been trained to be like this. Yep. It’s near impossible.
I’m trying to loosen up and have fun within the constraints of my disciplined life. I love working out, going to bed early, and eating healthy. But I also need to be able to enjoy the occasional skipped workout and (gasp) sugary treat. That second one is honestly gonna take me some more time. Just to be SUPER honest with you!
So while I’m trying to figure out how to BE more fun, I’m gonna DRESS more fun okay? That’s my solution for the moment :)
I got this amazing bolo from my wonderful friend Jessica of Hillbilly Gypsy Boots. Who DOESN’T need a buffalo bolo tie in their wardrobe, am I right? See? I can be fun!!! I love the peach color of this incredible vintage caftan, and I thought it would be fun to keep with the color scheme and wear these amazing orange suede booties and the orange bolo.
I hope to report that I’ve become much more fun soon. So stay tuned :)
