Back to basics?

Is that the key?

The other night, while trying to eek out just a few more minutes to my day, I happened upon yet another article aimed at new year resolutions.
Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.
Hell bent on trying desperately to hold on to the weekend, I decided to skim it a bit and see if it said anything that would kick start my heart into really wanting to tackle yet another week.
It wasn't exactly new stuff and it wasn't even well written.
But, there were three words that I lingered over--Back to Basics.
Simple, common words that stopped me dead in my tracks.
I think I even let out a sarcastic little laugh.....
I scratched my head, stared off into the darkness.....
I don't even know what the basics are. How in the hell can I get back to the them if I don't even know what they are?

Sure, sure, I know what B-to-B means when it comes to certain things.
I know a girl needs a pair of black pointy toed patent pumps, a little black dress, a perfect red lipstick, a pair of black lacey panties, a sexy bra, a classic black clutch that can hold a few bucks and a few contraband cigarettes and a good martini shaker.
And, I know what pots and pans one must have in the kitchen and what spices are a must.
Plus, I've got the whole basic rock and roll collection down to a science.
I make sure I always wear a blazer or jacket and heels in the office and I'm never lost when it comes to what's needed in my medicine cabinet.
And, I guess I'm well-versed on Lapband basics.
But, in life--what are the basics?
