So this is what I ended up doing today: I bought the computer I’ve been denying myself. It’ll be delivered on Tuesday. I don’t want to give false impressions—my guilt was throbbing through my head like a pounding headache; I simply decided to ignore it. Do I regret my decision? Nope. Not now. And most certainly not when my new sleek computer with its flat screen is here on my desk, a constant reminder of my incredible impertinence.
Every day when I sit down to blog, I imagine myself cringing just a bit waiting for the other shoe to drop. But you know what? I bet there won’t be any dropping shoes. I bet the earth won’t quit revolving, and I won’t come down with a horrible terminal illness because of my audacity at buying myself something. I just bet my greatest fears will all go slinking off with their tails between their legs in the manner of most big mouthed cowards.
So that’s what I did today. One small step for mankind, perhaps. But you know what they say about a journey of 1,000 miles: it begins with a small step. And somewhere deep within my system, someone is smiling big time.
(This has nothing to do with this post, I just like it.)
