If The Crown Fits…

When I was a little girl, I had a big imagination. What happened to that imagination?

Life…. Stress…

Growing up comes with all sorts of stressors doesn’t it? But, why do we let growing up change our imagination, our dreams? Why can’t I swing on a swing set at the park? Why can’t I dress up for Halloween? Why can’t I dance and not care what people see or think?

Somewhere along the line, I began caring too much about what other people thought and I began to lose myself. I’m on a new mission now. I want to be more carefree. I want to use my imagination more. I want to dream more, do more, see more, explore more. Life is short. I want to make the best of it.

This Friday night, I am attending a fundraiser event for the organization; Meals On Wheels. The event is the Wonder Woman Premiere. They will offer raffles, appetizers and more. The catch? We were told we needed to dress up. I’m not talking about wearing a gown. I’m talking, wearing a costume. At first, I was thinking – nope! No way. I thought about it a little while. I’ve been wanting to see the Wonder Woman movie for quite some time.

I decided to go for it and attend the event Friday. I found a cute Wonder Woman dress and leather coat at Hot Topic and am pretty excited about the event. I’m embracing my inner child. I’m learning to smile, laugh and have fun again.

I’ve decided, if the crown fits… I will wear it. Basically, that means – if there’s something I want to do – I’m going to do it. Nothing will stop me now.  If you have lost yourself in the craziness of life, step back. Breathe. Reassess your life and come up with a plan to not just live, but to enjoy life. I have!
