CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens, Duane Reade…

“Yeah, I hang out with him sometimes because it’s really convenient.”¬†

 

Oh really. WTF am I – CVS?

I keep telling myself to “Stop using your life/body as a convenience store.” You don’t need it as badly as you think. Do I really need to remain constant in anything in my life because it’s convenient? No. Not at all. Convenience isn’t even worth anything to me. Change is the only constant in our lives. Fuck that CVS style convenience store lifestyle.

Actually – theoretically speaking, go to that CVS on the corner, buy yourself some pick-me-ups…and change!! Small changes everyday make for a greater change over time. So many options, so little time. Make a move, get things done. Do what makes you happy – not what’s easiest.

Working away from convenience store life and into extreme, meticulous thought process life is difficult. Like a large department store? Specific boutique? Mall of America? Black Friday midnight madness? Manhattan during the week before Christmas? Bingo. Complexities are scarier for sure, but I think they’re more worth it in the long run. (Also unsure if this shopping comparison made sense to anybody besides myself). At least I’m being inconvenient! LOLZ.

Begin an inconvenience store – start working extremely hard at things that need extreme work in your life. You know what they are – those things that you’ve been avoiding doing. Your New Year’s Resolutions 2014! (2013, 2012…) That you forgot about because that holiday was like so long ago and it’s already been Valentine’s Day & St. Patrick’s Day and you’re way over it by now. Also you’re probably hungover. Deep within, the things that need improvement and that you recognize, are the most meaningful in your life. Just because something is convenient, does not make it right. Or easy. Because convenience is sometimes the most inconvenient thing present in your life.

Say goodbye and be free of the convenience store – ie. ex-boyfriend you were still hooking up with occasionally or at your own convenience. Cool – that’s nice, until it’s not. Until you’re over it. Until you’ve been burned so many times that you’re unaffected by the burn. That’s when you start burning him. It’s not always a guy – it could be a relative, a friend, a co-worker, anybody you know, your worth much more than a goddamn drugstore or 7-11. Give yourself a little bit of motivation and peace the fuck out. Welcome in a lifetime of happiness for you.¬†Work hard at it because convenience is over rated and it usually comes at a much higher price.

I mean, it’s only good when it’s like chocolate being the end cap at the tampon aisle.

2014 – woke up this morning, still a bitch.

Happy 2014!

Woke up this morning in my apartment, alone, with an amazing outlook on my beautiful life. Wholeheartedly, decided to open up the refrigerator & remove 1 bottle of celebratory champagne. Followed by opening up the cabinet and removing 1 of my mother’s gorgeous champagne glasses from her wedding, which I now have because divorce. (Thanks parents, for all of your fab belongings that remind you of each other, that have been forcefully gifted to me. Love you much). And now I’m drinking the entire bottle to my face, because I’m me. Thank God I don’t mind what people think of me.

Sat down to do my daily reading/stalking on IG, Twitter, Facebook, so that was different.

This year I’m going to do new things. I’m not going to focus on all of the “off” things in my life & focus on the positive things. Do cool shit. Do new things. All the time – step out of the comfort zone because I’m pretty good at being forced out of the comfort zone. Might as well just stay there and live it well.

Up on the agenda:

Learn French.
