I Chose Worn Out Red Flats... Red Shoed Pony

“My shoes I got to pick. I chose worn-out red flats. I figured I should make it clear from the start that I wasn’t princess material.” ― Kiera Cass, The Selection

I love this quote... I could never be princess material either and I worry about the 'princess' mentality in our younger girls.  They are surrounded by Disney princesses. With all the over marketing the girls wear shirts, dresses, pjs, shoes, crowns, phones, computers, chairs, bedspreads... it goes on and on and on. They are literally brainwashed by it all. Thank you media! Thank you Disney.

So ... are you brainwashed by the media to be something or someone else?  What is it that keeps you spinning in your world?  

Mine is probably art supplies... and the emails from Dick Blick, Cheap Joes and other vendors that want my money... and my life.  Often I think about not painting any more.  My husband laughs at me.  NO... I promise, I want to use up what I have hear and not feel like it is a have to... to produce and paint and sell work.  Give me till the end of the year and let me use up my supplies... Right, that never happens, but I do think about it.  I crave my me time to be with family...or to be in my music or just reading in my porch swing.  Simplicity of life, definitely not the princess life.

For great is your love, higher than the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies. Psalm 108:4
