The Good Life

I can always find something to complain about. Nevertheless, life is so good right now and I am just soaking it all in.  Work is going well.  My relationships are great. My closet is full of beautiful clothes.  I can afford to travel.  When I started this blog I was really unhappy with my life and now I know how to never let that happen again.  I still have PTUSD (Post Traumatic Unemployment Stress Disorder) from graduating law school in 2009 with no job, but I feel like I am starting to overcome all the fear.  Inspired by Gawker's weekly unemployment stories section, I recently drafted an account my own struggle.  It's probably too horrific to post here, but I am contemplating it.  Writing about all the pain I endured made me so grateful for all the blessings of the past two and half years.  I don't deserve this embarrassment of riches that God has given me, but I will keep them as long as I am able.

Good Decision

Burberry Trench - Sound of Music Tour in Salzburg Germany
I was looking back through my blog and I realized that I never posted a pic of the Burberry trench I bought last March.  It has proved to be a great purchased as I've worn it at least fifty times already and it hasn't even been a whole year.  I definitely wanted something short so it wouldn't make me look even shorter.  I am so glad I waited for the one I really wanted.  I am currently saving for my next splurge and I hope it's as perfect as this one has been.

It's Gonna Be a Happy New Year

More than anything else, I just really want to enjoy this year and make it the best one ever. New Year's Day I went to see Les Miserables. It was really great and I barely cried at all. I tend to think about a lot of serious things and I spend way too much time thinking about other peoples's feelings. This year I want to be more selfish and think about happy fun things. After all, life is short so I am going to fill it up with small things that make me happy like long lunches, good books and sour candy.  I am going to make 2013 the absolute best year of my life.
