After the movie my girlfriend and I shared dinner where we once again solved all of life's problems, (or for the moment it seemed).
I spent Saturday shopping with another girlfriend and as we checked out the clearance shoes in DSW she said, "I should try to get into some flats but I'm so petite I always wear heels for extra height."
Me: "You should wear heels. They are just so YOU. I can't picture you in flats."
Girlfriend (smiling): "Oh, good, that is how I want to be remembered."
You see why we get along right? She's my type of gal. Stay tuned because I will be introducing her to you all shortly as a guest contributor.
I have been in flats for so long that I decided to buy some heels myself, (wedges actually - they are a bit safer for a klutz like moi). Now let's see if I can remember how to walk in them.
The remainder of the weekend I worked on a proposal for a dream job. I have been holding my breath since I hit the send button. Yes, my face is blue at the moment.
It is in the hands of fate. If it doesn't work out, it's because there is something better in store for me. My advice, you will never know if you don't try. It's not like I never heard no before, you just can't let the no's in life keep you from going after a yes.
My life is still in transition. The difference now, is that I see the light at the end of the tunnel. The next chapter is about to unfold and I'll be damned if I let anyone else write it for me. It is so close I can almost taste it.
Dream big, stay positive, and put on those heels. As Coco Chanel said, "One never knows when you may have a date with destiny."
How did you all spend your weekend? Do you let the no's in life deter you from trying, or do you continue to go after your dreams?
