It's a big deal that I have this raincoat. My pink raincoat. Pink is not really my color...or that's the story I've told myself. Oh but this raincoat....It makes me so very happy.
Can redheads rock pink? I think so. And maybe it's actually more of a fuchsia if I really studied the color wheel. Can you see that it has sacred geometry on the liner? Amazing hexagons....thousands of them.
You may be asking yourself, "why is she so flipping excited about this raincoat?" An excellent question.
You see for the past four or five years, I had this really thin coat (also pink) that was my makeshift raincoat. Literally fabric that sucked the water in towards my skin. So it really didn't do it's raincoat job....which is keeping me dry. I have been walking around in the rain getting wet. While my kids were dry and comfortable. I put their needs before mine...because that is what good moms do, right?
I am done with sacrifice. I mean really.
I am done with being a martyr. It no longer suits me.
I am done with getting wet when I want to be dry.
I am done with putting my needs last.
So BAM....I purchased a quality, name brand, pink, water resistant and water proof raincoat....for me. Because I'm worth it. A seemingly tiny purchase, in the scheme of things.
But oh what a message to myself and the world.
