I don’t know if you needed to hear this today, but I most definitely did.
No self loathing or “woe is me” crap, more like embracing the you staring back at you in the mirror and acknowledging everything it took to get to this point. Empowerment over pity, Boomshakalaka.
“I don’t need a metaphor to help me get this out, Love ain’t what this song’s about. It’s about beer and whiskey and drinkin, It’s about playin the fool and actin without thinkin, It’s about runnin with your buddies you don’t give a damn, What in the world happens to you man? Oh love ain’t what this song’s about” – Roger Creager
Everyone knows Mr. Creager only speaks the truth – don’t emphasize the flaws or failures, celebrate the journey. And who better to celebrate with than the various relationships that have also shaped your life?
“Later that day I got to thinking about relationships. There are those that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. The most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And, if you find someone to love the you that you love, well, that’s just fabulous.” – Carrie Bradshaw
She is the Queen Bee for a reason, listen to her. I’ll leave you with this thought to ponder on:
“The universe may not always play fair but at least it’s got a hell of a sense humor.” -CB
