Wear the Party Today Because Today Is All That Matters!
Don't wait to celebrate anything! Wear the party panties today! Someone once told me a story about the party panties and it gave me a really good giggle because it was so silly so I'm going to share that with you today. Hearing it was a very big aha moment because I was guilty as charged. It's essentially a story about buying a specific thing and having waited for that perfect occasion to use said thing, only to find it's still in your drawer or closet many months later because that very special occasion didn't happen as expected. Party panties was the example I was given, but insert anything in its place and it's all the same. I think we've all at some point bought something fabulous and waited to use it for that very special day. Whether it's a New Years Eve outfit, the good china, a fabulous new pair of boots, it's all the same.

To Some, Half a Story Is Better Than the Whole Truth
If you are to realize true happiness, you must be willing to accept the world in which you live and your role in the happenings of your life. Interestingly, people have an uncanny ability to rewrite history so it better fits their own personal reference frame. Some have the ability to rationalize the events in a particular event's sequence and reconstitute these happenings to the outcome that best fits their personal reference of what was perceived to happen or what (innately,) the individual wanted to happen. This approach is in diametric opposition of Article I of the Constitution of Intention. The liar will often promote a false story of historical proportions in order to protect the idea, belief, or reputation that this individual has worked to manufacture for him or herself. In further violation of the article, to share only half of a story's facts fails to fulfill the personal aim of honorable existence and promotes a false assumption of character and conduct. To violate Article I is a direct violation of fostering public and personal trust. The liar goes around this article by simply leaving out portions of the narrative or history in order to shore up the lie.
