A couple of months ago while I was checking in on blogs I wandered over to Camilla Leila (so much pretty!) and saw a post that she called #Sorrynotsorry. It was exactly what it sounds like: a little list of things that she is not at all ashamed about.
At the time I read the post, I was knee deep in guilt and thought this would be a perfect exercise to stop that noise in its tracks. I mean seriously, what better way to squash guilt than to make a list of things that you refuse to feel guilty about?
I got distracted (probably by something shiny) but came across my note about it the other day. I thought I’d give it a go, so I put together a list of ten things that I refuse to feel sorry about.
- I have a sweet tooth that requires me to eat chocolate daily. Yes. Requires. It’s a physical need that I will not give up (but maybe I’ll cut back on… at least when my stress level is manageable).
- My husband and I regularly consume entire series of television shows in the smallest amount of time possible (I’m talking to you Breaking Bad, Mad Men, House of Cards, Arrested Development, Orange Is the New Black… um. You get the point, right?).
- I sing pop music (loudly) in the car and like it as much as my seven-year old. #Sorrynotsorry, music snob husband.
- I absolutely do not wash my hair daily.
- I use my children to fight off awkward social situations. Don’t know what to say? Prompt the chatty 7-year old into a conversation that is sure to be endless. Don’t have the kids with me? More difficult, but I can manage to launch into an endless story of something ridiculous they did that day. You’ve been warned.
- I own enough lip gloss and chapstick to hydrate the lips of an entire school full of children.
- There is no such thing as too much HGTV in my universe.
- Sometimes I wear leggings as pants. In public.
- I take endless pictures of my children and force them upon the world. There may have been a few deaths that stemmed directly from too much cuteness.
- I like cheesy, predictable romances novels nearly as much as I like the classics. The same goes for movies.
Alright, what about you? What are you totally unashamed about?
