Getting It All Wrong

It started like this:

But I was afraid you couldn’t read it that way, so I typed it out here.
(Because I’m still trying to get it all wrong.  That’s not easy for me.)
(Well, not on purpose.  I get it all wrong by accident all the time.)
(You know what I mean…)

I used to be a think-out-side-the-box kind of person.
And then I became an adult.

But I’m taking baby steps to change that.

I bought a colored purse.
And not a dark color, but a bright! happy! one!

I am writing the wrong way
And hoping the figurative follows the literal.

It feels good to be different.
(I’d just forgotten how good.)

    I love it. I love that you are willing to change things and take risks. We all need to do that more often.

    I love this. I love the purse. I love you. Bright happy colors are especially lovely now I feel. I, for instance, am wearing a new lipstain that is probably too pink but makes me very happy 🙂

    Love this. And you know that baby steps are the start to all great things.

    (Also: Love the purse! And it’s not black! I think baby steps are contagious!)

    I used to think outside the box more when I was younger too. And I’ve been feeling similarly. It’s like I’ve forgotten how to do so in the midst of the busyness of life. Thanks for the little reminder. I love the purse, too!

    I still write in my odds and ends of notebooks, there is just something about paper and pen. Love this! Sometimes the box keeps us sane in the chaos. Love the purse.

    I love that purse!

    And I love how you write – it’s always just right, never wrong!
