I need a margarita please...

I still want chips.  Chips and salsa.  Maybe a frosty beverage to enjoy with those chips and salsa.  On my patio, with the hot sun beaming on my back, sunglasses on.  Did I mention I'm pasty white right now (as usual) and need a tan?  Since I turned 27 I usually avoid the sun like crazy (which I know is weird because I live in SoCal), but last week I laid out for a day and I kind of loved it and missed it.  Laying out with a frosty beverage right now sounds like the perfect moment to me.

Nothing new.  Striving away.  A beloved follower mentioned to me today that maybe I'm too hard on myself.  I've been thinking about this a lot.  I was so proud of myself a few months ago because I felt like I was really learning to forgive myself more, and even yesterday I was driving down the road thinking- wow...I really love being me...and yet, now I'm wondering if I've intensified all over again.  I have a tendency to do that.  So I have vowed to pay attention and re-dedicated to being less intense all the time. :)  Sometimes I lose focus on being less focused! Hahaha...

Ok that is all for today- I'm off for a bike ride.



  1. Ohhhhhh, that sounds like the perfect day to me too, Diz! I am a sun worshiper from way back. Just something about having that sun-kissed look and feel. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!

    As for the other, remember to enjoy the journey... perfection is elusive, if possible at all. Simply keep striving to be the best you and ENJOY!!

  2. need for a drink...just stare at the fireman picture. I loves you.

  3. love your outlook, Diz. and i love how you can find pleasure in the simple things!

  4. Oh Diz we are our own worst enemy! Your doing great dear. Loves and Hugs

  5. I feel guilty about laying out in the sun but I can't help it. I love how the sun makes me feel and I LOVE how a tan makes me feel. Also, I just keep telling myself i'm getting my daily dose of vitamin D. Oddly I'm against tanning beds so I justify lying in the sun..
    love ya miss ya and really want frosty drink with chips & salsa!

  6. "Dedicated to being less intense." I think there might be a mantra there for many of us. Thanks for sharing! I understand the craving for the party foods, but you don't need those. Pedal, pedal, pedal.
