Anywho, back to my crazy-bad week. I've been in "blahsville" with no expectation of leaving anytime soon. All week long, my mood has worsened and worsened. I touched a bit on the funk that I felt I was falling into last week, but this week, I allowed myself to waller in the funk a bit. Shame on me, I know. Apparently, clothing says a whole lot about my mood. I think I may have a hint as to why. . .
I am a creative person. I love making things new. I guess, in a silly way, putting on a new outfit everyday gets the creative juices flowing for me. Allows me to wipe away the funk from yesterday and start again on a blank slate. I feel a bit like my wardrobe is an outlet that I use in which to describe myself. I wish I didn't rely on it so heavily, but it's true. If I can't change the outside up a bit, I get to feeling mighty stagnant and stale on the inside. I cannot tell you how many people this week asked "Are you okay?". I must have this look on my face that says that I'm depressed of sorts. I'm not, and actually, more in my life is RIGHT than has been in a very long time, but apparently I've been borderline walking zombie status among others. I hate that the outward adornment makes that much of difference.
So, with that understood, I'm taking my pink hoodie and my other 6 articles of clothing and I'm headed for some R&R. Some girlfriends and I are headed to the mountains this weekend to veg in a cabin in the woods and read and write and gab and play board games and watch chick flicks and stay in our pajamas the entire time. Of course, MY pajamas will be my black, running shorts and Thunder shirt (shocker, I know!), but who's keeping track? It should be fun and give me a chance to start my last week of this Clothes fast off right. No need to impress. No reason to go out. Just baring our souls to other chicks who may feel a little "in a funk" lately too. I'm looking forward to it.
Above all, I'm looking forward to wearing something different in T-minus 10 days and counting. I may just throw on a feather boa and cowboy boots and head to Wal-Mart, just because I finally can. And I've been meaning to put those two accessories together for awhile. I just know they will be the next "black".
Have a fantabulous weekend, friends! Leave me a little message! Let me know what YOU'RE up to this weekend. . .
