Dressed for Success, Actual Achievement Yet to be Seen

Historically, when I plan parties, they tend to go awry at the speed of light.

My planning a birthday shindig resulted in unseasonable blizzard. That was just this year. In previous years, this occasion has caused transit strikes, citywide blackouts and ice storms.

Second of all, said party would be mere days after moving into this studio. Thirdly…well…this is ME. It’s bad enough that I ruin my own special days…but to ruin that of the less fortunate?

I’ve swallowed my fear though, and agreed – and tomorrow, I shall be having my benefit party in my apartment…at a time when I’m thus far unpacked. I’ve planned the menu, and not yet secured all the necessary ingredients. I’ve invited a dozen of my besties…and as of now, only a small fraction are confirmed coming. Storm clouds are predicted. By most logical accounts,this party is already doomed.

I choose to follow the path of The Secret, though, and let my vision create my destiny. I shall go into my party dressed for success, starting from the the BCBGirls Balm sexy strappy sandals on my newly-manicured toes. They have hot metal rivets for a rugged edge, an edge I hope my calm will teeter on – as the party moves on.
