Normally I would be brewing up more coffee and resorting to a caffeine induced energy surge. This no longer seems to be an option though. The last cup of coffee I consumed made my heart do all sorts of funny things, which I found rather terrifying to say the least. So, no more coffee until the stress of change has mellowed a bit.
Now what? No coffee, no energy and so much work to do.
This is a job for big girl panties!
If you’ve never heard of big girl panties, these are special imaginary underwear you put on when you need to do something really tough. Something you really don’t feel like doing or have the energy for.
I’m not much of a big girl pantie fan. In fact I almost threw mine out the other day. They tend to get me into situations that feel much too big for Little Old Me. Sometimes however Little Old Me has to suck it up and put them on because that's what we have to do to make a difference.
Step on is a cup of tea. Little Old Me feels much better about doing things she doesn’t care for when there is a nice cup of tea involved. This makes her much easier to work with, I find the whining seems to subside a bit once the tea has started to take effect making the insertion of Little Old Me’s legs into the holes of the big girl panties much easier. Once her legs are in she’s committed and life gets much easier. Just like it is whenever you do something hard that feeling of accomplishment is a really good one and she likes it. Quite often she brags about Big Girl Panties being on when people have noticed she’s doing something difficult.
Lately the big girl panties have been on more often than not. In fact Little Old Me is starting to wonder when we get to take these horrible things off. The truth is, and I haven’t wanted to tell her, they are going to be on for a few more months yet.
We discovered that taking off those undergarments of huge responsibility to go do something fun, tend to be exactly what one needs to freshen them up. Even a short burst of something completely juvenile such as frolicking in a swimming pool or playing ‘go get the pony’ with your horse can make the biggest difference in how those big girl panties feel when you put them back on.
I’ve learned proper care of your big girl panties is an important part of being a responsible adult. Wear them for too long and you may lose the ability to wear them at all. I’ve now made a commitment to myself to take care of all the parts of me, because I know I’m going to need to get a lot of use out of my big girl panties over the years to come.
