Do you ever feel like you aren’t qualified to be an adult? Like having your “ish” together and looking it too is a tall order? I mean havingΒ your things in order is one thing but looking it too?Β Some days I come to work and see some of my colleagues looking like models. Perfectly manicured nails, make-up and dress. Hair “on fleek”Β and some of them with kids. I’m like hey man – did I miss the boat completely?Β
Don’t get me wrong, they look great. Really great. By this I am by no means throwing any shade as Ella would say. I imagine that it makes them feel great too. It’s so awesome. I want to be like them too (at times). There are days when I have slept well and I wake up maybe 20 minutes earlier (this doesn’t happen often) and I have some time, where I too make a little more effort than normal. On those days everyone who sees me looking like Darth Vader normally, is like “Wow Venean! You look like a bride”, no I’m not even kidding someone really said that to me. And it makes me feel good too. It does – I get all warm and fuzzy.
But it’s effort and sacrifice, sleep is important to me guys! I love my sleep. It also makes me wonder if there was a secret class everyone attended while I was slipping in some mud somewhere. A class on how to.. do you make up in under 10 minutes, or which facial regime will work for your face. I wonder if the notes on how to wear heels everyday without having your toes hate you at the end of it – were handed out while I was in the bathroom? Or was I sick that day?
Whatever happened. I missed it. Can someone fill me in?
In an attempt to catch up, I will be doing
someΒ a lot of googling and some soul searching for my inner diva. I don’t know if I fully trust Pinterest after its last fail over here. A little excited and nervous, I plan to share all my wins andΒ fail with myself.Β AsΒ well asΒ my need to know how and fit in over here on the blog. I hope you will enjoy this as much as I hope to and that you too will grow and learn a thing or two that you didn’t know. If none of that – I hope that you are able to laugh at my mishaps as hard as I hope I will.
