another week closer to thanksgiving, another week closer to christmas, another week closer to my birthday, another week closer to a new year…


speaking of anxiety, i didn’t want to believe it, or listen to my own body but, the last couple of weeks i started noticing that after i would drink my coffee, i would become filled with anxiety

my heart would race, i couldn’t start a project fast enough, or enough of them

not a good feeling

i was only drinking one cup of coffee in the morning but, this week i substituted it for caffeine free tea

i have found much needed inner peace since i did the switch

although i love coffee, it’s not worth the anxiety, you know?

i have given it up in the past, so i am sure i will pick it up once again in the future

i must say though, all that anxiety (and retrograde lifting) gave me the motivation i have been needing to do such things like cleaning out my closet, storage bins, and the shed in order to soon have a private backyard “shop my closet” sale

happy friday friends. it’s been quite the week. looking forward to the weekend

have a great one!

oh, and ladies (and i guess some gentleman), this wonderful documentary: fabulous fashionistas
