In case I didn't mention it before, I have (self-diagnosed) social anxiety. I spent a lot of my life being embarrassed by normal things like buying toilet paper or talking to strangers or doing things that might possibly be construed as silly. And while I'm definitely not "cured", I've worked hard over the years to overcome the worst of my fears, to get rid of the nonsense that was getting in the way of the life I wanted to live.
It was hard at times (and is still hard at times) but I know that life is short and all we have at the end are memories of a life well lived. A life filled with friends and laughter and silly moments. A life filled with accomplishments, large and small.
I think my one squinty eye says it all. It happens when I’m having so much fun that I forget to worry about keeping it from squinting. Karrie and I had such a great time yesterday. It was a good day, a silly day, a day to laugh at ourselves and to be ourselves without regret.
I think this will be the last Twilight post for a long while because, believe it or not, I do have other things going on in my life. I've got the cleaning bug so you'll see studio photos soon. I'm even doing a little knitting! So, Twilighters and non-Twilighters alike, stay tuned...
