inhaling is the easy part exhaling is where it gets hard

I'll talk about the sad stuff some other time. 
I shaved my legs for my birthday. That was a pretty big step for me. 

For the first time in years I had a surprisingly good birthday. My best friend came in from NYC and my other bestie was up from Florida.

I got my hair done. We went out to eat. 

I made Kh and my bestie get Friendly's sundaes with me. 
We played Cards Against Humanity. Ate cheese and crackers, and veggies. Drank too much wine, and stayed up to late. I'm glad I had on waterproof mascara. I haven't laughed that hard in a very long time.

 Flat Stanley got to hang out in my boobs and party with the veggies. 

I bought myself ankle boots with skulls on them. I'm pretty much in love with them.

I got some amazing gifts. Porcupine quill earrings and a silver shark tooth necklace from Kh, and my bestie got me a necklace with dandelion seeds in it. 

Thus far 27 has been interesting. I've had some terrible lows, and some mid-level times. Business is so busy I haven't had a full day off in over a month, which I can't complain about. But I am feeling burnt out, tired. Some days I just want everything to be on mute so I can be alone in my own thoughts. Separate my feelings, compartmentalize everything.

Some days the energy just isn't there.

This is what 27 looks like on me. And one of my new dresses I bought for Mexico. Vacation can't come soon enough.

  1. Keep working on the exhaling--it'll get easier, I'm sure. I learned somewhere that if you keep your core tense when you exhale, it just serves to stress you out more. My therapist pointed it out after she watched me try a deep breathing exercise. I know it was more of a metaphor, but I figured I'd pass that tidbit along. Also? Would it make everything worse if I just snuck into your city and kidnapped your scarf? Because I'll admit, I'm kinda tempted.
