untitled is the best description

Just like everyone else on the planet, some of my days are good, very good and then the rest I just want to erase from my memory. Today was a lovely, nice slow day. I hate taking it easy because I always feel like there should be something else I could do with my time instead of wearing sweats and watching Gilmore Girl re-runs. But you know what? I enjoy that and that's something I'd like to do more of in this big old talked about new year; do more things only for myself.

Often times I get the whole schpiele[sp] of how I'm so young and everything I do is for myself, but really, I know that a good part of what I've done or bought or seen has been for other people the past few months and I'm excited to do more things solely because I'd like to. For instance, I went and painted pottery for a friends belated Christmas present yesterday and it felt awesome to just do something because I felt like it and it was still for someone else.

My point is that I want everyone else to do that as well, do things for themselves, splurge a bit more, don't over-think that third brownie you're eating, if you want to buy a ten dollar magazine, go on with your bad self! If you want to do it, it's all your choice and you shouldn't have to feel guilty for whatever a week later. Got it? (insert big hug right here.)

I just felt like saying this because so often we set out these resolutions and make them out to be a big ordeal of expectations and then March rolls around and perhaps nothing's happened. Personally, I have never set resolutions nor do I plan to; I hate what they do to people.

So...yeah; in the words of Forrest Gump - that's all I have to say about that.

Much love,

PS: I'm THIIIISSSSSS much closer to having my mail-blog up and running!
