Thought for the day…..

Welcome to Tuesday, May 29th, 2012.

Wow, what a gorgeous morning it is here in the City of Edmonton.

The sky is the purest of light blues as it appears to my naked eye.

The sun has risen and is beaming all through my neighbourhood.

It is a great day to be alive ….. a great day to be ME and the greatest day to be YOU.

I am wearing a skirt to work today.

It seems odd as for the past several decades I have made my “uniform” pants, slacks, capris, shorts ….. the ones with the legs in them, you know.

But every once in awhile it is nice to wear a dress or a skirt.

Today is that day.

I always admire the ladies that throw on a simple skirt and top or a dress and look like they conquered the world.

I feel like that today.

Only one thing ….. my “bag” is going to clash but oh well …… I have others but to change it now when it is almost time to leave for work …. I will survive.

It is funny to me looking back to when I was in my twenties and thirties … I would also match the shoes to the outfit to the purse to the jewelry …. would picture perfect from head to toe.

As the years drift by …. those things seem less important.  I still want to look good but if I am off the perfection pitch just a tad ….. it doesn’t matter so much.

So I guess we definitely learn as we age to just “chill” ….. go with the flow …….

So on this Tuesday as I head off to work ….. I would love for you to “just chill” ….. “go with the flow” ….. relax.

As far as the clothing goes ….. be comfy and be you.

I was reminded of this when I was out walking with Alvin last night.

We came across a young Mom and her little girl riding bikes.

The little one had every pattern and colour on from head to toe and looked so cute.

Her Mom said “she likes to dress herself” ……

So have a great day.

“Be yourself” …….

Special Hello to: all those gals that just chill, and to all those who want to just chill ……


Always, Carol and Mr. Alvin …..  my guy…..
