If you receive Gwyneth Paltrow‘s blue blooded newsletter, GOOP then you’re familiar with her lists of spring must-haves from Net-A-Porter and how wonderful it is to have a private chef pop over to make Sunday dinner. I’m not knocking GOOP, I just can’t relate to it. Still, I refuse to unsubscribe.
New Girl‘s Max Greenfield stepped in to guest-edit Gwynnie’s
diary newsletter, lightly poking fun at the not-at-all modestly priced items Paltrow waxes on about. Greenfield tries to surrender to the GOOP, and stop thinking.
Not thinking can be difficult. Surrender even more so. For example, how am I supposed to be “Ready for Summer” when I was never “Ready for Spring”? I could sit on the couch in my Rag & Bone high-neck sweater and spin out on this for a full week and by Thursday all I’m thinking is what a disaster fall is going to be!
Then I remember to stop thinking. I remember that today is just today and that is all that it is. I take a deep breath in and I realize that in this moment I am fine and everything is okay. More importantly, I am reminded that my A.P.C. jeans are so perfectly worn in that they are appropriate for any season and I am suddenly at ease. It is at this moment that I have surrendered.
