My Christmas was short of spectacular. My new year was no different. I won’t go into detail but it emotionally took me off track and I was unable to really enjoy my holiday. But not for my parents and my pup Paris, I would have stayed in bed the entire time. In fact, I did that NYE. Pathetic, I know.
I’ve been told I need to work on my attitude when dealing with unfortunate situations. But, when you just don’t see a silver lining in that dark cloud, how can you transfer those negative emotions into a happy, happy, joy, joy state of real existence?
It’s now Jan. 2nd and I’m determined to make the best out of the most inconvenient, most painful and daunting occurrence that’s had me in a royal funk for 9 days now. In that, I spent hours perusing designer deal websites that offer glitz and glam to make every girls nightmares go away.
For starters, anything bling-y makes you smile! Doesn’t it do it for you, too? Chic for sure, but all those flashy sparkles always make me giddy. Then there’s green. The color of grass and money. You can’t go wrong with that. There are shoes and hats, of course, two accessories, which by I allow myself to fix all woes! And perfume, especially personalized ones. Those are a sure way to make you feel .
So for Christmas, I relished in the sweet (and some practical) gifts I received and those that remain on my wishlist… because there’s always the hope of that Prince charming making his way to my heart by Valentines… or my birthday… or Christmas, again!
Here’s to hoping you had a marvelous Christmas and lovely New Year’s Eve celebration! May all of your wishes come true this 2012!
