If you spent a few hours inside my head you would probably hear ramblings such as the following:
(1.) Can I tell you guys that I am so friggen glad that I don’t abide by the whole neatly packaged suburbia, cookie cutter lifestyle, where every single Mom looks the same…you know, either they are frumpy as hell, or a fusion blend of “Cookie Lee” meets the Stepford Wife clones! I am happy being my unique #SPANDEX self, dang it!
(2.) That’s right, I love my unique sense of style and I will always unapologetically march to a “rhythm” of my own as both an individual and as a Mom! And NO I am NOT a Femme-Nazi, I just have my own ways of doing things, that’s all!
(3.) I have learned the hard way that putting all of your time and energy into one specific area of your life is a sure fire way to destroy that very part of your life, as well as all of the other neglected parts as well.
(4.) I have also found that I am actually quite a force to be reckoned with once I realize that someone or something is trying to gain some sort of unhealthy control over me…(Even if sometimes it takes me a while for me to figure it out…) But know this, I stand true to my convictions, and I will bite back and fight to protect my dignity & self respect!
(5.) So what if I am not the world’s greatest cook…I can read directions on a box , make a mean salad and know the guidelines of the Food Pyramid, so as long as the kids and I are getting what we need…it’s all good right?
Besides, being a crappy cook makes you appreciate being wined and dined THAT MUCH MORE …hahaha!
(6.) I think that the people we should consider “family” aren’t always going to be of our own “flesh and blood”. Now, I am not discounting our real family members in any way of course, but rather I am saying that sometimes our universal family finds us along the way. Meaning our family can evolve and include the people that grow to love, encourage, respect, understand and unequivocally accept us exactly as we are, without any judgment or preset conditions. And you don’t even have to marry them!!! Wait…what?
(7.) Rearranging my casa has a magical affect on my well-being…So does IKEA
(8.) I don’t care how unhealthy incense may be…it still friggen ROCKS and makes me feel all Zen and sh**…so I am going to keep it burning and I will also continue to light enough candles around my place to make the neighbors think I’m a witch or something…LOL
(9.) Razors are still NOT created equally, so until which time I can get a kick ass pink razor that is sharp enough to slit a throat, I am sticking with the “MANLY RAZORS” to get the best possible shave I can get! Our legs, pits and girlie parts need precision too … Not just burly, bearded men and stubbly, whiskery boys!
(10.) Never let anyone make you think your inner voice/instincts are crazy or untrue. Usually the emotions or feelings being projected towards us by others tends to speak louder and more clearly than the actual words that would admit the feelings first hand.
*The End* (or *The Beginning*…depending on how you look at things!)
