So, I think that the "fake it to make it" mantra is from AA, which is not where I want to go with this post... Honestly... However, it is a pretty good mantra, don't you think? I mean, there are days (sometimes more than I care to acknowledge...) where I just don't feel like that spunky, chipper, happy, positive, inspirational diva that I want to be. So, on those days, what I have been trying to do is to simply pretend that I am. Oh, don't get me wrong, there are days when I am so NOT chipper, there is nothing happy about me, and the only thing I am positive about is how cranky I am. But on those days, I find that often, if I pretend to be be the things I want to be, my spirits are lifted, and by the end of the day, I just might be a little more positive and happy.
On that note, spring, and with it the sunshine and warmth that I so look forward to every year, seems to be avoiding the Seattle area. We do get the odd sunny day, but overall, it is pretty gray and cloudy, not to mention cold. So today, being a bit "over" the crappy weather, I decided to go outside and shoot a couple of my favorite things. And if I look at these photos, and squeeze my eyes nearly shut, I can pretend, for a moment or two, that it is actually spring. And sunny. And warm.
Fake it to make it girls - really, what can it hurt?
