Quote of the Week: Special


So, I woke up this morning with the usual vigor that one has at 6am (as in not very vigorous, especially pre-coffee) and got to work.

Whilst getting dressed, I ended up pulling together an outfit that may have seemed a little fancy for working from my apartment with no meetings to go to and nothing in particular planned aside from a possible painting project. (I'm getting Decorati Fever again!) Chalk it up to getting dressed in the half-darkness.

When I was getting ready to head to the local coffee shop with Charlesband to get my morning latte I mumbled, "Should I just put your flannel on and jeans?" (By the way, I just discovered that I totally fit into one of his newest flannel button downs which makes me extremely happy because that means I don't need to get new flannel for myself.)

He looked at me, cocked his head and said, "what's wrong with what you're wearing right now?"

And I was about to make a point that it seemed too fancy...but then I stopped myself and thought about it. My fancy-pants conscience (who I always imagine to be either Regina Brett or Holly Golightly), perched on my shoulder and whispered, "Why not? Why not wear fancy clothes? You never know what might happen today!"

Which brings me to today's quote. I do find myself holding out on wearing certain things or using certain items (let's not get into the pile of beautiful notepads I have lying around because I'm too scared to write in them) because I'm saving them for a "special occasion". What the occasion is and when said occasion will happen is a mystery...and then you die. Boom.

I can see it now. My obituary will read "Nami is survived by her husband, Charlesband, her pooch, Mr. Merlin, a very large stack of gorgeous notebooks and a pile of fancy clothes - the latter two, completely untouched."

I mean, what am I waiting for? And I ask you the same thing. What are you waiting for?
Let's just say that the special occasion is that you woke up alive & well and ready for the day ahead. In this day and age, that's something to celebrate!
Remember: TODAY IS SPECIAL, so use those beautiful things in your life. That's what they're there for! xo!
