Hi there! 👋🏻
Oh, why yes, I’m wearing my rainbow dress again…don’t judge! It’s comfy and I was seeing completely different people today! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I have SO MANY celebrations this month and next! Today was a birthday brunch AND a birthday afternoon tea. This morning, I was celebrating with one of my oldest friends, and it was wonderful catching up and drinking sake cocktails for hours. This afternoon, I was less enthusiastic about because I don’t love large group activities with a bunch of people I don’t know, but it ended up being an ok time. I am always fascinated by other people’s lives and relationships, so it was an interesting afternoon. I find it so simple to just be content…I really am just happy most of the time, even when I’m not…if that makes sense. I never have any desire for a different life or to have more…I genuinely like who I am, who I’m married to, and what I do. I’m surrounded, usually, by others who feel the same. The people in this afternoon group. They were a mix. It was a good reminder for me of how fortunate I am to have such positive, supportive, motivated, and just generally good-natured friends. 😍 (This afternoon’s party was for a woman I know because she is the husband’s friend’s wife.)
Life is too short for pettiness and gossip. Be kind. Surround yourself with kind people. Life is sooo much better that way. I’m happy for the reminder, but I won’t be hanging out with (most of) those ladies again outside of the husband’s work events.
