So here are two excerpts from posts that you'll probably never see in their entirety...
MY SHOE THEORY (This is real and I stand by it)
I have this theory.
I love to people watch and analyze individual behaviors and overall impressions I get of people as a whole. Whenever I am around other people I am always drawn to their feet.
I think that you can tell the most about an individual by what shoes they wear and how they wear them. Shoes can easily be the most expensive part of your outfit - if you let them be. I believe they are also the easiest to distinguish between expensive versus low-cost, well made versus poorly crafted, or name brand versus generic/knock-off.
There are so many observations that I make about others shoes and in turn about those individuals.
MY RANT ABOUT NOT TAKING RESPONSIBILITY (Ugh, kids these days)
<Insert photos of oceans and sunsets with words like "If I'd known then what I know now, I still would have done it," "Give everything and have no regrets" or "Never regret anything because at one time it was exactly what you wanted">
I shake my head every time I read these. Somehow this idea that you should do whatever you please as long as it makes you happy, feels good in the moment, or is what you want has become something to strive for. I feel like this is such a childish, selfish sentiment - that you can live your life with no regrets. That you can just magically spin bad choices into cherished memories of lessons learned. To me, these ideas reek of entitlement. It gives this idea that everything is just grey area.
There are decisions I have made in my life that I most certainly would like to get back. You want to know what I have "learned" from those lovely life lessons that I should not regret, but accept?
Your actions can hurt other people.
Your actions can hurt yourself.
Very profound, deep concepts that I would not have known about had I not experienced them firsthand.
Fascinating stuff #amiright
I guess I just need to get a new pet or have a baby so I can spice things up around here.
In the mean time I'll bore you to death with mediocre iphone pictures.
