a wise woman once said “fuck this shit” + lived happily ever after.

Good morning when you’re seeing this, but really, good evening (is 1 AM still considered evening? …my fellow night owls are nodding in agreement) when I’m typing this.

So mom + I were having a conversation the other night about schedules. If you’re new around these parts, something you’ll learn almost instantly about me is that I’m a planner; I make lists for my lists, time out my busiest days to squeeze every possible thing I can, make mind-maps of my goals and every microscopic detail it will take me to attain them… AKA the textbook definition of TYPE A.

We shifted + started talking about when plans go wrong… when Sunday night has Monday all scheduled out to a T and then all of a sudden, somehow, the alarm doesn’t go off, the whole schedule goes out the window, + I end up forfeiting the day because it will never go right as planned.

At some point in my life, I would like to meet a person who has it all figured out. Like… point A to point B, ruler-straight lines, just BAM. Life is gucci.

I know that people like that don’t really exist, but everyday, I still strive to be one of those people.

But, here’s the reality of it all: life is like a healthy diet.

8 AM: yogurt parfait.
10 AM: banana.
12 PM: sandwich.
3 PM: granola bar.
6 PM: salad.
11 PM: a gallon of ice cream, a pizza, half a sleeve of oreos, the family dog.

The line is SO STRAIGHT and then your ex texts you out of the blue for a late night booty call. “Yeah, sorry… can’t, I’m not feeling well.” *eats entire kitchen so it’s really not a lie.*

I like routine. I thrive on certainty and knowing “it all”. My brain functions at peak when there is a list it can follow.

I suck at spontaneity. If there’s one skill I lack, it’s taking risk.

So what am I getting at here? There is no perfectly planned. There are detours on maps for a reason.

So believe me when I say… I am terrified for life’s next risks. But I am so ready for the rewards. Sometimes, you’ve just gotta throw your hands up in the air, tossΒ your worries out the window, andΒ FUCK IT.

Come join me on this next adventure, and let’s change some lives + take some risks while we’re at it. πŸ’ͺ🏼
