We over-achievers tend to torment ourselves with the belief that everything worth having is painfully complicated.

Alas, that is not always the case. A life-long lesson for me, I’m afraid.

Walking in gorgeous 4 inch heels… not so great. Walking in sneakers, awesome.

Taking four separate flights to get to an island paradise, that ends up being no different than Key West… not all that it’s cracked up to be. Taking a quick road trip to some nearly-deserted Carolina beaches, awesome.

Getting your legs waxed… not so fun. Living in a place where people don’t care if you shave your legs, awesome. *wink*

Stressing over an elaborate menu for a get-together… wearing. Making quick and simple snacks for a party, awesome.

Awesome on so many levels.
