Happy Anniversary, PEP!!

Hiya, Welcome back to PEP! Happy Anniversary, Paula’s Eclectic Paradise! We are now one year old as of July 17, 2018! I can’t believe it’s already been a year since I began this blog. I am thrilled with my followers and how well it’s done. It’s not in my budget for what I was thinking about for the one year anniversary so I will come back to that, perhaps for the holidays instead. Things happen when you’re self-employed no matter how well you’re doing.

This week’s question: How far would you go for fashion?
My answer: Not very far. I wear what I’m comfortable and confident in. I’m not going to wear what’s fashionable just because it’s fashionable. I’m not a follower. I’m not going to wear something I can’t breathe in, something that makes my feet feel like the soles are being stabbed with hot pins every step, something I can’t sit in, or some ridiculous hat just because it’s ‘in’. I refuse. So, you can see, for fashion, I won’t go very far.
What’s your answer?

This week’s writing:
“It is what it is, it ain’t what it ain’t, and don’t make it into what it isn’t.”
She turned at the familiar voice, “What?”
Her older brother sat next to her in front of the grave, “I can hear the wheels turning in your mind. It is what it is, it ain’t what it ain’t and don’t make it what it isn’t. It’s upsetting but there isn’t anything you can do to turn back time. It was an accident, not a murder, don’t make it into more than it is. Don’t let their death consume you or twist their memory into a battle you don’t need.”
She scowled, “So, what. I’m just supposed to forget about them, about what happened?!”
“No, of course not. Never forget about them, but don’t let their untimely death suffocate you, draining your life. You and I both know he would want you to live.”
“But I shouldn’t be here without him!”
She stalked off into the rain, leaving her brother staring at the gravestone belonging to her fiancé.

Writing Prompt: Once upon a time, there was a happy little girl. Then she grew up into a monster.

My Book of the Week: The Dressmaker by Kate Alcott. It is wonderful! It’s a historical fiction, set in 1914, dealing with the Titanic. But the ship sinking isn’t the primary focus but rather the mystery surrounding survivors. I definitely recommend it if you enjoy historical fiction.

Monday Motivation: I believe that if one always looked at the skies, one would end up with wings.

Music I’m listening to as I’m posting this: Heal the World: Michael Jackson-Dangerous.
