I only have ONE it's okay statement for this week and it's...
It's okay to be different.
I tell myself this all the time because in the past couple of weeks, I've realized that I'm kind of different from a lot of people around me. The only few people that I feel I can resonate with are my mom and my sister. Yeah, go figure. LOL!
Let me tell you how I my thought process was when Ron asked me for what I wanted for Christmas.
I would like a pair of new Tory Burch flats but I'm sure I would never wear them because I heard they hurt the shit our of your feet.
I would like a Louis Vuitton purse but I'd rather get Salad Master pots and pans - still impractical but at least it's more useful.
I would like a Mercedes Benz but I'd rather drive my Mazda or trade it in for a Sonata because they are more efficient (oh and I heard some bad things historically about MB).
I would like to try Mastro's but paying over $100 for dinner for two sounds ridiculous.
I would like to own an iPad but seirously, what would I do with it - we have 3 laptops at home, 3 smartphones and a tablet.
I would like to try all the restaurants around our neighborhood but I'd rather go grocery shopping and make dinner for my husband. (I just said husband, I love saying husband *giggles*.)
As superficial as this county I'm living in is, I find myself rowing my boat to the opposite way, deviating from what everyone likes and just going with what I like. Don't get me wrong, I am a self-confessed trend follower but I always tend to just do things my way because...through my niece's words, "I don't want to be like the others" most of the time.
