You Shine

Daytime NYC Wardrobe!I hate packing.  It gives me major anxiety.  Like, should I pack my outfits together, or should I pack them in the order that they are going to be worn, maybe I should roll them up, or should I just fold them neatly; what should I do?   Packing has never been fun for me.  Don’t even get me started on the shoes.  How many, which ones, all of them?  It’s a mess!

This year is kind of different, though.  I packed my suitcase for BlogHer’10, and I loved every minute of it.  I decided to roll up my clothes, for maximum room.  I also decided to group my outfits, but not by day, because when it all boils down I have all these clothes that can be switched around and worn with each other.   Versatility, yo.

Early last week I whined about not having great clothes to wear.  And, shortly thereafter my clothing fairy godmothers(and fathers)*came through for me.  I really do feel like Cinderella going to the ball.

Maybe that’s why it was so easy to pack.  Everything going into the suitcase, bound for New York City, is new and fresh.  There are new experiences and adventures around the corner.  I can’t help but feel giddy, complete with butterflies in my belly and stars in my eyes.

While I’m gone I will push myself a bit, stretch a little more in my passion, gather around those that I consider my people, and I intend to shine and feel good.  We all deserve to shine and feel good.  I wish that for every single person.

Shine and feel good.  You owe that to yourself.  I’ve finally realized this.

    It looks like you will be fabulously well dressed and will shine at the conference.

    I… personally… am packing straight from my sad closet. Not really so sad… but nothing new closet. Of course… no one at BlogHer will know the difference right?

    So um…. everything I’m packing is brandy sparkly new!!! : )

    You deserve to shine and have a ball. Glad some fairy godmothers/fathers came through for you.

  10. I hate packing too. I always pack on the last minute and it makes it more difficult because I end up cramming. lol! I guess when you look forward to the trip, you will feel so positive about things. I hope you have a wonderful time at blogher!
