Sentiments


Top: Old Navy, Jeans: GAP (similar), Sandals: Target


I envy those people who can say or do whatever they feel at any given moment and not apologize for being themselves.  Those people who don't think twice about whether or not people like them or if they are being judged.  Are you one of those people?  I wish I could make mistakes without apologies.  I wish I could be me without feeling the need to make excuses for it.   Do you know what I mean?

I was talking to my mom on the phone the other day about spring cleaning and just purging in general and we're both kinda the same way...  I mean, I have old dingy t-shirts from high school that I never wear, but won't get rid of because of the nostalgic sentiment they contain.  People, I graduated high school 10 years ago!  I have my reunion this summer for crying out loud!  I have clothes that don't fit me or that I no longer really like, but I wore them to college graduation or to a bridal shower.  I hang onto everything.

It made me think about all the other ways I cling to things.  Not just material things.  I have too many glasses of wine and I go around apologizing to everyone at the party like its my job.  I would never expect anyone else to apologize for the things that I apologize for so why do I force it upon myself?

I'm going to try to stop making excuses for my cookiness.  I want to be me in every situation.  I think I have a lot to offer the world even when I'm making mistakes so, here I am.  In the raw.  After all,
Via

  1. My co-workers tease me because I say things that nobody should get away with saying to our boss. I am a no-filter kinda person. Not in a mean way, but I just say it like it is when I'm thinking it. Sometimes it's a bad thing, but usually I don't feel like I have to make apologies for it because people know that's me. Love your top too!
