What Mary Margaret Found In the Garden by shabbychicstyle on Polyvore
Do you long to escape your life? Your worries? Your cares? Your BILLS? I do today, more than ever. On this Sunday, I am definitely feeling overwhelmed by all the expenses howling at my door like the proverbial wolf. And dear readers, my hood is most definitely red. In the red --hah! A fitting pun, don't you think? My struggle to build a more professional, polished fall wardrobe is a major stressor at the moment. And that is just the tip of the iceberg. My body is sending clear signals that I am in meltdown mode: my jaw is so sore and tight, the bruxism that used to plague me has returned. Once more, I wear my night guard so as not to damage my teeth. This is not good! This heralds the need for change --in both attitude and financial circumstances. But today I want to escape. I've mused on here more than once how people today all too often attempt to escape their financial woes by shopping, which only worsens the situation. I know I am guilty of that. The collage I made today reflects my desire to find another way to cope, even if it is just as impractical: MAGIC.
Are there little people in the garden with the power to whisk me away to another realm? I wish, I wish. Like the little girl in the picture (made by a terrific artist - click on the Polyvore links above, on Polyvore you an access artist info about each image used in the collage) I need to stumble upon a little magic. But can I make my own magic? Can I craft a spell that will change my life, its incantation comprised of goals, strategy and effort? I must try to find out, My jaw can't take much more of this!
