the beauty of bullet points

It's like, beyond pertinent that I focus on the good stuff right now. For instance:
  • the cold spring water I'm drinking right now with 2 slices of lemon
  • the plush white Ralph Lauren robe I'm wearing
  • gifted to me by my mother
  • my mother's recent efforts to be more involved in my life
  • my dog's coat at the length it is right now: not too short
  • and not too long
  • just furry enough
  • the fact that I actually tried to make a salad today
  • the fact that I ate most of it despite it being an epic FAIL
  • due to the fact that I didn't dry the tuna out enough
  • causing the entire thing to be a big, sloppy, wet mess
  • side note: how gross is that description?
  • the Amy's organic pizza currently cooking in the oven
  • and the smell of it, duh
  • the gerbera daisies sitting next to my desk
  • on the windowsill
  • given to me by my Whole Foods cashier today
  • after I decided to enlighten her
  • with the details of my current life situation
  • her only response was,
  • "shhh" as she placed a bouquet of yellow beauty
  • in my shopping bag
  • I mean, I did wonder for a second if she was hitting on me
  • but then decided it didn't matter either way
  • because there are nice people in the world
  • sensitive people
  • yes, I am grateful for sensitive people
  • like my father today
  • his call meant the world to me
  • despite the fact that he had to rescue me
  • from my self-imposed darkness
  • like a ice-cream scooper to a gallon of Ben n' Jerry's
  • Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice-cream
  • I cannot wait until I can once again devour a pint of it
  • only 30 some days to go
  • I gave up chocolate for Lent
  • and I love chocolate
  • but kind of like, unhealthily love
  • oops, no negativity in this post!
  • my love for chocolate is fine and dandy
  • yes, yes it is
  • the fact that I'm learning to let myself be
  • lately
  • thanks to some wonderful help
  • sometimes we need help in life
  • and it's not a weakness
  • it's a strength
  • and some people that don't want to
  • well...
  • maybe they're weak?
  • but maybe not
  • i'm just not sure
  • plus, this is not a post about that kind of stuff EITHER
  • back to the lecture at hand
  • I love spring weather
  • and the fact that it was almost 70 degrees today
  • and the fact that I am a fighter
  • although today, well specifically tonight
  • I feel blue
  • until I take a sip of my ice cold spring water with lemon chunks
  • and realize my pizza's ready
bullet-pointed post idea in stream of consciousness, fragmented style was kind of, just a little bit, maybe just inspired by the lil bee


  1. This is so positive, love it! You start with the cold spring water + lemon and mention it in the end-in a way the whole thing comes full circle.

    I agree, in life we need some help once in a while...I had to learn that it's not a sign of weakness. It is strenght!

    PS: If you have time, I interviewd a wonderful up and coming designer on my blog. Would love for you to check her work out. :)
