Today, I decided to try liquid eyeliner for the first time. And, as with most things in life, the first time around, didn’t go all that well. Okay, fine. It went terribly, who am I trying to kid, look at that picture. The horror. The entire process was definitely as difficult as I expected it to be, and I ended up looking ridiculous. Maybe with some practice, it will end up looking a little more normal? Who really knows.
The point is, I tried! I finally gave it a go, and I’m no worse off now, than I was yesterday.
Even the husband’s reaction was entertaining: *shaking head* “You look ridiculous. Did you leave the house like that??”
This post is not really about liquid liner. Stick with me.
It was brought to my attention today, that I have been… somewhat of a bitch lately. I will admit, there is a good chance that this might be an accurate description. I have been incredibly stressed and overwhelmed with some big life changes.
Life changes that have come about because we have taken the steps to make them happen. But, getting yourself into the situation is always a lot easier than dealing with the realities of it… am I right? We are officially now out of the comfort zone and trying new things. I mean really, I live in a damn Airstream. But what comes next? People rarely give advice on what the next step is, and that kind of bothers me.
I’m out of my comfort zone, now what the fuck do I do with myself?
Not only did I try liquid eyeliner, and find out that I’ve been a real pain in the ass, but today my husband, also gave his two weeks notice at his secure full-time job. In exchange for a 6-month contract position. This position is only guaranteed for those 6 months, but that allows us 6 entire months to work remotely and travel the country, while we figure the rest out.
I am excited and terrified. I am so outside of my comfort zone that I might be going a little bit crazy. Or I might be acting a little bit like a bitch, depends on who you ask, I guess.
So what do you do, after you’ve abandoned all reason and you’re waiting to see what happens next? You just go with it. Sit back, enjoy the ride, and see where life takes you. Because, really, what else are you going to do? You definitely don’t want to be a bitch.
I challenge all of you: try something new this week/to do something outside of your comfort zone! What’s the worst that could happen?
