...But I really need another one!
I've recently entered three competitions. Of the three there was one I thought I was a shoo-in. I wrote a great essay, had terrific experience and honestly, couldn't imagine there was anyone more qualified. I really know New York well. I knew there would be a lot of competition, but there were a number of spaces and I was reasonably confident I'd be one of the people picked. This afternoon I found out I wasn't.
As the evening wore on I felt like a balloon slowly emptied, and a history of not being picked has taken over my thoughts. I am remembering not being picked for gym teams, not being picked for my first choice college and not being picked for jobs I really wanted. Ouch! I feel too down in the dumps to post the perky upbeat post I had planned and will let that wait for another day.
I turned to Pinterest to distract me and figured I could take refuge in pinning the most gorgeous luscious cupcakes I could find. But what did I find instead of cupcakes to lift my spirits?
...this blood orange Margarita!
On this Buttercup Holiday I'm off to Margaritaville in my mind. All visitors to Buttercupland are gladly welcome to join along!
