Wonderful Mess

I find it difficult, impossible to find balance in life; it is something I have always struggled with.

Older than my years or a kid at heart?
Go, see, do or stay at home?
High fashion or jeans and t-shirts?
Vibrant colors or soothing neutrals?
Taking risks or playing it safe?
Cherish the small stuff or seeing the big picture?

All of these things are part of who I am.

Balance. I'm either hot or cold, thrown far to the left or far to the right.

Really, what a wonderful mess of a creature I am.

  2. That's a really great list. I can totally relate. I always have this dilemma when I think about saving money. Should we live in the moment and book that trip right NOW or should we save a little bit and wait a while so we can plan for it and enjoy it even more?.....

    Also I just took off some crazy villainous nail polish for my fave go-to "bamboo shoot" neutral. Yes yes I can totally relate to this :))

  5. Stopping by from The Sisterhood at This Southern Girl's Heart...

    I can definitely relate to this! I constantly feel like I'm trying to fit myself into some mold that I was never meant to fit in... Especially in regards to style and home decor. I'm kind of all over the place. But, I finally decided to quit trying to put myself in a category and just embrace what I love. I wrote about all of this here: http://www.domesticblissdiaries.com/2013/01/combat-style-indecision.html

    By the way, I'm your newest follower. Hope you'll visit me at http://www.domesticblissdiaries.com and, if you like what you read, follow along with me.
