you see, on a road trip comfort is key, right? who wants to sit in a car for hours on end in their cutest pair of skinny jeans? there's a bind in the legs (and secret no-no area) that's just the complete opposite of fun. Lulu sweats allow one to be comfortable behind that restrictive seatbelt and at the same time, look pretty stylish and "cute" when pulling into a rest stop for a stretch/coffee/tea/pee.
tonight i found myself tossing the old gals on in readiness for movie watching. alas, somewhere between my bedroom and the family room, an urge to make a mess hit me in the back of the imagination. i found myself in my studio picking up a canvas i had previously painted a pastel background onto. i threw the canvas to the ground, picked up a bottle of burgundy liquid acrylic paint and proceeded to squeeze it onto the aforementioned softness. from there i grabbed the nearest colour and spilled uncontrollably.
there's paint everywhere. on my hands, stomach, hair, floor, walls, and Lulu's. i now have the most expensive and comfortable painting pants and i love it. i can still wear them on road trips, covered in paint splash, and if people don't like it...well they can enjoy their secret no-no discomfort. tonight felt great, amazing, to just make a mess and not care what came out of it. i have to learn to trust that more, the not caring. most of the things that make me feel great come from not caring, just doing and BE-ing.
