Lessons Learned From Panties

19 Nov

So I had a conversation with a friend the other day and it left me thinking…

I know 2 sayings regarding panties: “big girl panties” and “panties in a wad.” Let’s reflect on these a moment shall we?

Big girl panties – They’re comfy, they’re pretty, they fit and they’re easy going; you put them on and forget about them.

Panties in a wad – They’re not comfy. Panties cover 2 vital body parts, and if there is a wad in either of those areas, you’re gonna notice; you’ll feel the irritation till you fix them.

Confession. I can get my panties in a wad in a matter of seconds; it doesn’t take much but it can affect my whole day. When I get worked up, I spend the next several hours re-living the situation over and over again. I say things I wish I would have said or things I wouldn’t dare say out loud but I have no problem shouting them in my head.

So, how do I stop this madness? How do I go from wadded up panties to big girl panties? How do I get over it? Answer: the “F” word. (No, not that one! That one’s not nice and gets your mouth washed out with soap and then causes blindness.)

I have to “F”orgive them. I have to take a step back and realize the conversation I’m having with myself isn’t doing anything to them; however, it’s ruining my day. It’s causing me to stay in that frame of mind and that place of yuckiness. I’m a grown woman; you’d think I’d know this by now. You’d think I wouldn’t allow myself to wallow in a hypothetical situation, but I do. I camp there for hours and stay in a bad mood and frustrated. I have to accept that fact that what they said hurt me, but I don’t have to let it upset me. I have to CHOOSE to move beyond this and guess what? That’s when my panties start getting a little more comfy.

What kind of panties are you wearing today? Comfy or wadded? Are you going to a sail through the day never thinking of them again or are you going to allow someone to ruin your comfy panties mood and get them all uncomfortable? The choice is yours my friend, choose wisely.

Thanks for allowing me to share my world with you…welcome to my brain.
