Lately, life has been all about getting back to good health. I'm not apologizing for it. I was once bold, brave, mouthy, loud, and brazen. Where did she go?
No one, absolutely no one should ever make you feel less, whatever the circumstances. Don't let them fool you, when they say you have to 'change your thinking'. I say that's B.S. or just plain old, bad stickin' luck. We all have dark and light days, shit happens. People get sick, finances go bad, relationships end. That's life.
What I am learning, is how to face it. The bad, bad, really bad, ugly times. With humility, grace, and tons of patience?
Nah. Today, I say fugg it. I got a better idea. Make this one day yours, and yours alone. Do all the things you love and forgot, stay up late, watch the sunrise, go to the beach, swim with the dolphins, eat mounds and mounds of chocolate. Have crazy, orgasmic, protected sex (of course) with a hot, scruffy young man, and check it off the list. TURN UP THE VOLUME. Get your killer heels down from the closet, paint your toes an OPI in Red My Fortune Cookie, put on some Ardell false lashes, apply Hardy Candy's Meteor- eyes Glitter Eyeshadow in Black Hole, a metallic black with flecks of silver, heavy on the top & bottom eyelids. A bit of CoverGirl's Lash Perfection and Shu Uemura's Rouge Unlimited, in RD165M, and make no mistakes. You are STUNNING, sunshine beautiful. No one can take your spirit away. Get a little crazy, "I'm still here, beeeyatchs".
Turn up the music, LOUD, real LOUD and take your unique, gorgeous, feminine, female fatale self out on the town. You deserve it. Those will be moments to relish in. Not the sick, hard, scary ones, the anger or regret.
Make NO apologies. Tomorrow your girls, friends and family will be there to pick you up and dust you off, right back to reality.
