Bitch , moan, rant, whine, sulk, pout, ramble, do nothing, or get off your ass and become part of the solution.
I’m not sure which is worse, keeping my mouth shut or forcing myself to recognize why I wanted to speak in the first place!
The joke in my house is that I am a delicate flower, my husband knows better than anyone that I have a very hard shell and a very soft center. Add in my vulgar prone mouth and when I saw this I nearly spit out my coffee. This is the best card ever.
That uncomfortable feeling inside you; the one holding you back, censoring you, degrading your confidence. It’s a liar, it doesn’t know any better. AWOL nation said it best, Never let your fear decide your fate! Face and conquer your fear.
This is the truth: Fearlessly be yourself. You are just as wonderfully fucked up and beautifully flawed as the rest of us. You deserve the best life possible. You are worth joy, love, empathy, understanding, forgiveness, and self acceptance. The first step is to decide who you are, who you want to be and go be that person. Fearlessly, without arrogance or apology.
This is the truth: There will be times in your life when just the Big Girl Panties ( Big Boy Boxers) aren’t going to cut it.
Some battles are too important. Any battle for YOURSELF, is the MOST important.
Find those Sparkly BGP, as Righteous Momma described them the other day, and learn to love and fearlessly be you!
Happy Monday Lovies!
PS- I just HAD to….
I went searching for a good image of the “I have loved the stars…” Galileo quote, (hoping for a curly haired girl and the moon, was disappointed) But stumbled upon this.
If I was feeling more ornery tonight I’d state THIS IS THE MOTHER FLIPPING TRUTH!
Apply it to business.
If you don’t know the answer don’t make something up. I’ve never been berated for stating “I’ll have to get back to you on that” or ” So and so will have a better answer, I will get with them and follow up with you”
Apply it to relationships.
Speak the truth to me or choose to stay silent. Both are your choice and both mean something in their own special way depending on who you are and how much I love you, or don’t. It is in my nature to always speak the brutal, direct, sometimes delivered gently truth. I’ve never been very good at bullshit, sharing the truth of how I feel and what I think is too dear to me. Bullshit takes too much effort to maintain and it degrades our relationship.
Back to searching for that perfect image… someday I will teach myself how to make them….
