Sage Advice Based in a Bachelorette Party

When returning from a bachelorette party, remove all party favors from your purse.
  • I went to a bachelorette party in Keystone over the weekend and naturally, there were some phallic straws. Well, somehow I had one in my purse when I came to work this morning. I work in a federal building. Where they x-ray and screen purses. 'Nuff said.
When traveling, always be prepared.
  • While in Keystone, I managed to curtail my junk food binge (read: ate smaller portions of said junk food interspersed with fruits and veggies.) However, that junk food makes for a rumbly tummy and heartburn. Tums Smoothies were consumed en masse when I returned home. I also managed to randomly have a deck of cards and multiple sizes of safety pins. Booyah.
Anytime you have to chance, you should fall in love.
  • You know how girls are. We chat. And when we're getting together with some adult beverages for a reason to celebrate impending nuptials, we're going to get a little mushy and lovey-dovey. So, naturally, you become an idealist and a romantic and realize that anytime you have the chance to take that leap of faith, you should do it.
The grass isn't always greener.
  • Just because your perception of someone is that they have it made, there are cracks in the porcelain surface if you look hard enough. You should realize that you've got a pretty sweet yard. Even though you have to mow it (this week in a circular pattern, next week, it's diagonal, third week opposing diagonal - not that I'm bitter from my chore as a kid, Dad...) and make sure that you water it, you can always lay down and enjoy that fresh cut grass smell (once the sun dries it...but then again, a nice big blanket can help, too.) Basically, I have a pretty sweet and charmed life.
Tell those around you how much you appreciate them.
  • Too often, we can become complacent with how others in our lives really make it the charmed life we lead. Without the generosity of my family and friends - monetarily, time, love, etc. - I would be pretty lame and way too self-centered. These are the people that keep you in check from turning into someone with a dark heart. Make sure that you let those around you know how much you are grateful for their kindness throughout your day. Every. Day.
Every journey begins with a single step.
  • And that step sometimes has to be repeated throughout the journey. You're going to have to break down to the basics to replicate success. Whether it's drinking water absent mindedly or reminding yourself everyday of one thing you love about your significant other when all they seem to do is annoy you. It's not going to be an easy road. No matter what your journey is for. You are going to have to keep on keeping and remember what your motives really are. You meant something when you started, just remind yourself that you do have purpose even when it seems that there's only miles of cobblestone ahead of you and all you have are 5" stilettos.
