The thing is, I’m a very practical person. I like everything in my life to run as efficiently as possible. For example, I check the care instructions on clothing I purchase. Dry clean only? No thanks. And I do not like dishes that cannot go in the dishwasher. Save one piece. My Snoop cup. This incredible find is one I make an exception for. This mug brings me so much joy that not even hand-washing it can negatively affect my mood.
Never has a message more accurately described my true character…”Somewhere between Proverbs 31 & Snoop Dogg, there’s me.” Mmm-hmm. Say that, Etsy mug. Say. That. I’m part prayer warrior, part hip hop lyrical poet. Just kidding. I don’t write raps. Not yet anyway. But I can hold my own at Hamilton karaoke night, y’all! And every single time a Dre or Snoop ditty comes on, you better believe I’ll be singing along. Complete with amazing gangsta movements, obvi.
My point? There’s two actually.
1) Be you, boo! Whatever crazy mix of characteristics makes you uniquely you, embrace it! It’s ok to be a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Everyone is wired totally different and that’s a g (as in good) thang. You can be like this and like that and like this and uh.
2) Surround yourself with things that bring you joy. Position the salt lamp in your office so you can enjoy its glow (and health benefits). Select art that breathes life into a room. Listen to music that encourages or uplifts or gives you energy. Drink from the mug that makes you feel like a Jesus-loving bad-ass!
