casual fridays.

i’ve been inviting all sorts of positivity into my life for a while now and with each passing day, i can actually see how it has been affecting my outlook and daily energy. there is just far too much negativity out there and it seems complaining is the popular thing to do nowadays. no thanks, i have no interest in that! i’m all about smiling, and laughing, and twirling, and hugging, and telling people how much i adore them. i have plenty of time for all of that good stuff!

saying that, this week has shown me that i need a lesson in managing my expectations. all this positivity allowed me to get my hopes too high for a few things. as sister says, “low expectations.” maybe even a bit lower than that. i’m feeling a bit emotional about it all today, but know the only option is to just keep being me.

do you name things? last night at the barre body studio’s five-year anniversary party, i planted a succulent – that included a buried intention and a crystal of my choosing – with the help of one of their great instructors. “her name’s Ophelia,” Hilary exclaimed! yes, that’s definitely her name. it made me think, i have named my vehicles (Suby and Mable) and named my laptop and phone (Otis and Goldie), why haven’t i named my plants? how unlike me. now that i’ve welcomed Ophelia to the family, i’ll have to go back and name my three other plants in the living room.

i have a few very fun days ahead of me. i’m checking into the Calgary Airport Marriott In-Terminal Hotel tonight for a weekend staycation, and then going to The Bash wedding event with H and more of her lovely girlfriends on sunday – after brunch, of course.

what are you up to this weekend?
