It’s the 4th of July. Independence Day in the USA. Quite by accident I am wearing a red shirt and a blue dress that I am using as a skirt for today. I am not wearing anything white but I am surrounded by white. There is a white bottle of Curel Daily Moisture Original Lotion for Dry Skin on my desk. There are white pieces of paper towel on my desk. There is white paper all around me on my left and right. There is white in front of me in the form or a window blind. There is white in the lottery tickets on the shelf on my right.
I played the lottery last night but I didn’t win anything. Oh well. I would be able to buy this MAWI Rose Gold-Plated Flower Embellished Watchstrap bracelet in blue from stylebop.com if I had won.
There’s a pink version of this bracelet. I like them both and would certainly have been able to afford them both had I won the lottery last night but I didn’t even win a free ticket. I know I shouldn’t waste money playing the lottery but sometimes I do. I never have any luck so you’d think I’d learn by now; but from time to time I have visions of Louboutins dancing in my head and I know I’ll never afford a pair in my lifetime unless I win the lottery. Although I have sort of made a declaration that by this time next year I will have bought my first pair of Louboutins.
The Pink Version
I don’t generally think about Louboutin shoes or any other designer shoes and spend time wishing I owned some; but I do spend time thinking about financial security and being able to achieve the goals I set for myself and having the ability to buy designer shoes if I so chose. It does get frustrating when you realize you can’t even afford something that costs $64.50 much less to be able to afford something that costs $645 like the above bracelets. So for me the goal to own a pair of Louboutins by this time next year is more about making a success out of some one or the other of the many things I work on each day as I pursue the larger goal of financial security.
