Facebook memories are killer. I finally logged on today and I was only reminded how much warmer it should be this time of the year. I was wearing light jackets and pants without another layer of leggings underneath and mules sans the thick socks. I don't know if Winter is lost but she can exit stage left and bring spring center forward.
This month has been full of decisions that can possibly alter the next few ahead. After teetering back and forth into the unknown, I finally realized that nothing in life can be romanticized like the weather. Yeah, it's spring but winter is very much still here too. You can't brave the snow in a bikini. You can but how irresponsible is that. I think this generation has this need to always prove something to the world. Don't get me wrong, I am all about chasing dreams and chasing goals but I wonder when we'll realize that chasing dreams don't equate to instant satisfaction and instant rewards?
It's hard work. And you should be willing to put in the work. You can't blink and snap a finger and have everything you want. Ideas need to come into fruition. I've romanticized the future so many times but reality always pulls me back. I always cared about what people thought but then I tried to pay my bills while still chasing my dreams with their opinions.
Newsflash, it can't. Carry one and do what's for you because after all is said and done, it's your life, not theirs. Winter doesn't last forever. Nor does life's bad days. When Mother Nature decides to direct Winter in the right direction and exit, I'll wear more pastels and mules and spring dresses. Until then, denim with my leather and white sneakers will be my uniform.
