And Isn't It Ironic????

text size A A A
I’m a simple Ozark girl. Aside from my obsession with all things bags (can you BELIEVE I almost bought another one yesterday? Thank you Goodwill for being slow ass people)…I digressed in my digression. Forgive me. Aside from my obsession with all things bags, I’m a simple girl. I love hot chocolate in front of a wood burning stove on a cold night, I love to watch the combines from my North facing bay window harvest the Fall corn, I love to just wander the aisles at Wal-Mart and browse the costumes and fall decorations, and I LOVE singing songs with my children on the way back from celebrating Oktoberfest. I’ve argued that the best things in life are free, and they are. Have you noticed that the older you get, the more ironic things become?
Irony. If you have to define it, you don’t know it. The 90’s hit, “Isn’t it ironic” wasn’t ironic, but unfortunate. As I sat defining all the awesome simple things in life that make me happy, I realized that I probably have thousands (not bragging) of dollars worth of bags, shoes, and others in my closet, yet you will most often find me in a pair of 20 year old TORN jeans, tennis shoes the same age, and an Illini sweatshirt….Irony….probably, and the irony of THAT…is that I wouldn’t realize that I’m happier with the torn jeans, if I didn’t have the expensive jeans hanging next to it ☺ The longer I’m here, the more I know I’m blessed, and I know I’m blessed by the way all the free things make me feel. Satisfaction, Contentment, Peace, Joy, Kindness, Love, Freedom….all FREE…all the Best. I’m not mad at ya, if you walk around with a Louis Vuitton bag. I may even stop you and compliment you on your choice of accessories….I’m just saying that I have a flea market bag, with fake pearls strewn on them….that I LOVE the most! The difference between Fame and Role Model is how well you fit into both skins….It’s ironic because you have to BE both…to know the difference (I’m not a Role Model, get it? ). SIGH….Be Blessed. Remember you set the Tone, you ARE the Example. BE KIND to each other. Show GRACE and MERCY to all those who cross your path today. With your Daily Affirmations complete, enjoy your Sunday.
