Just Who Does SHE Think She Is

images

Who IS this chick? This calculatingly cocky, positively presumptuous, seductively savage ball of feminine mystical brilliance!

You’re absolutely tired of her antics and a bit irked by your inner and uncontrollable  desire to remain enthralled within her aura, and see what she’s doing now. You can’t avoid women like this. They’re the movers and the shakers, the power players. They don’t actually create the controversy, but instead plant the seeds to get the harvest growing. You  painstakingly try to figure out how she so gracefully gets away with murder, not ever realizing that she never actually touches the gun…

Seriously though, again, who IS this chick and Just Who Does SHE Think She Is??

  • Who Does She Think She Is…always affirming her strength and aptitude.
  • Who Does She Think She Is…unapologetically going against the grain.
  • Who Does She Think She Is…living the life she was actually destined for.
  • Who Does She Think She Is…challenging the norm.
  • Who Does She Think She Is…rich and well-versed in her cultural identity.
  • Who Does She Think She Is…continuously overcoming adversity.

Who Does She Think She Is…and more importantly, Why Do You Care?

SHE is a Queen. She is unapologetic in her actions and her life choices. While needing no validation from her peers, she thrives in her own confidence and appreciation for every stride she makes. Her perspectives aren’t easily wavered, and her philosophies are usually based on fact rather than popular opinion. She’s regal in her demeanor and often exudes an intimidating disposition. She’s probably the sweetest girl in the room, but your worst nightmare during a questionable encounter. She isn’t afraid to speak her mind and silence your ignorance. Don’t ever misconceive her brief quiet moments for overall weakness. Remember, she is calculated. She’s fierce at chess and knows precisely how to play each move. She’s often even-tempered and indifferent, but never unaware or naive. She’s a force to be reckoned with in her professional endeavors, and makes moves inaudibly, leaving her adversaries in utter unforeseen awe upon each accomplishment. Her explicit personality has no room in her romantic relationship. While she demands the utmost respect from her mate, she’s delicate enough to know when submission is necessary; hence the fact that she actually has a good relationship. Trust is entertained quite loosely with her, as she has lived life enough to know that most hit dogs will holler. She’s mysterious yet colorful, and says the things that most will only think. Her transparency is refreshing and intriguing, as it becomes puzzling to see a woman of her stature not be perfect. Her children are off-limits to egregious nonsense, and violation of this rule is the quickest way to find yourself on the other side of her hell. She welcomes healthy debate and psychotically feeds off of your growing frustration to her lack of surrender. Her beauty is astonishingly exquisite, as she separates herself from norm ideals and probably embraces her natural attributes. She reads more than she watches tv and her man admires her intellect. She isn’t a huge fan of mainstream merriment, and you’ll probably find her on the opposite side of trendy social sensibilities. She’s just different.

You see, SHE is the woman we all strive to be. The woman that is inherently within all of us but only some have successfully mastered her revealing. She isn’t the everyday woman and doesn’t desire to be…So it isn’t about who she Thinks she is. It’s about who she Knows she is; and you presumably want to be just that…

Dear Men…7 Things We Really Want On Valentine’s Day Instead of a Gift

pexels-photo-11140-medium

It’s February 1st. This morning at 5am every man in a committed serious relationship woke up in a cold sweat with a migraine. Why? Because in exactly two weeks, they’re expected to reveal the most immensely romantic representation of undying Love, to the Queens in their lives. Some men effortlessly achieve this each year with little to no worries. However, most men are sitting at their desks right now, have already given up, and are desperately trying to remember what size bra and panties she wears, so his Vicky’s Secret go-to sales girl can hook him up.

Well, I’m here to help you this year fellas. Contrary to popular belief, while presents and extravagant tokens of affection are all well and good for your spoiled bougie boo, there’s also some other stuff she needs from you that money just can’t buy. When you get all of these items in line, sometimes we could actually care less about a gift…

  1. Your Time – Sure, you called Paris and had them overnight the new exclusive pair of nude Louboutins directly to her job, complete with five long stemmed red roses to signify each year that you’ve spent Valentine’s Day together; buuuut she hasn’t actually seen you all day, or even this week for that matter! Yes, while we most certainly understand that hard work obviously has to be implemented in order for you to provide us nice things, we also need you to understand that your presence means the World to us. All of the trinkets in the Universe can’t comfort a lonely woman. You better make time for what’s Really important!!
  2. Your Undivided Attention – Ok, you’re spending the time with her, but you’re attention is completely somewhere else. You’ve either got a phone glued to your face, ear buds in your ears, or you’re deeply enthralled in either some sort of television program or a ridiculously distracting guy text messaging convo on your cell. This has to stop fellas. If I have to repeat myself more than two times because your concentration is tied up elsewhere, chances are I don’t even want to talk to you anymore and now I’m completely thrown into an annoyed funk. Again, find better times to engage in certain things where your mate won’t feel neglected. OR, just always remember that you don’t have to show her any attention because there are thousands of hungry man-vultures right outside of your front door that will shower her with all the attention she needs…
  3. Your Effort – Women are considerably more simple than you think. We’re more wrapped up in thought, emotion, and significance. We can also tell when zero effort was considered, and absolutely despise when you don’t believe that effort is needed at all. So you’re tight on cash this month? No worries. Make her a nice thoughtful card, write her letter, or set the bedroom mood with items from your home and pamper her that evening. Cook a meal if she’s always the one who prepares them. Take the initiative to find a sitter for the kids so you two can just relax alone. Make her a cute lunch. Make a loving funny video and send it to her during her most stressful time of the day, because you know this will make her smile. THINK! There’s nothing worse than a man sitting there looking stupid like “uggghhh, I dunno”
  4. Your Honesty – The key to any fulfilling relationship is the concept of honesty. Be honest with your mate about where you two are, where you’re going, and what that means to you. All the heart-shaped chocolate candies in the world means nothing to a situation that’s about to go sour next week! Are there concerns you have with the relationship? With her? With yourself? Be forthright in your delivery and let your mate know! You may not want to hurt her feelings or damage her ego, but ask yourself if holding this in will ruin you all in the end.
  5. The Essence of Your Manhood – I think we all know what this means, hehehe. It’s free,  it’s all encompassing, it’s pleasurable to you both, and it’s scientifically proven as a superb stress-reliever! If your relationship is in this stage, please do responsibly take advantage of this. Plan for something out of the box and blow her mind. Women love a man to take control and work what’s his! Visit a speciality store, grab some scented centering oils, candles, and take care of your woman! Again…never mind, I don’t need to tell you again about those vultures.
  6. For You to Tell Her That She’s Beautiful – You should probably be doing this Everyday anyway, and if you aren’t, shame on you! It isn’t an ego thing for women so much, but instead a declaration of admiration and charming gesture. It takes absolutely Nothing from your day to sincerely compliment your woman!! She craves it, she waits for it, and she giggles and smiles when she gets it from you. Don’t Ever assume “she’s aight! She knows she’s good”…Most epic fail Ever! Yeah, she IS aight, but if she has to wonder whether or not her man thinks she is may be a Serious blow to your relationship. Your pride and ego have no room here. Tell that woman every minute of every day just how alluring she is!
  7. YOU – At the end of the day, when all is said and done, fellas, we just want You! No bells & whistles or unnecessarily trumped up nonsense. She needs you to be a Man. Her Man. The Man. She wants to know that you will protect her from whatever harm comes her way, and trust that she can depend on you to take the reins and properly lead when she hands them to you. All of the money in the world can’t replace any of these qualities.

Know who you are, what you have, and how to keep it! More importantly, know that you don’t need to wait until Valentine’s Day to provide these seven jewels. Be this man all of the time and then you don’t even have to worry about February 14th…

What You Said on Facebook, and What it Actually Meant in Real Life Pt. II

o_1a8t3985ecp01vijjh71ip7k5f7_new

 

I originally intended to get this out sooner, but anticipation builds desire and absence makes the heart grow fonder. So you all should be good and ready! I even poke fun at myself in one of these! Wonder if you can guess which one?? 😉

Before you dive head first into Part II, you must revisit and get reacquainted with the first post, What You Said On Facebook, and What it Actually Meant in Real Life Pt. I 

So, let’s keep the party going!

Facebook Post: “I just wanted to let y’all know that at 11:59pm I am Unfollowing ALL of my friends, and then getting off of Facebook until tomorrow at 3pm, because I just can’t deal with it all anymore! Too many Negative Nancys and NaySayers on my timeline! No time for Drama! I’m starting my life over at Midnight! #Boom #GoodBye #Block #Unfollow #NoNewFriends #GoinToIyanlasHouse #FixinMyLife #ImBetterThanThat”

Real Life Translation: Facebook is actually all that I have going on in my life and I NEED y’all to make me feel important by posting this ridiculous announcement. I actually want to Stay on Facebook 24/7 for the rest of my entire life, but then I’ll seem too thirsty. Plus, making a PSA about leaving will make people beg me to stay…

My Personal Commentary: If you’re going to Unfollow, Block, Unfriend, Nail to the Cross, and Excommunicate anybody on FB…just do it! We don’t need the extra dramatic disclosure to make yourself seem more paramount than you actually are.

Facebook Post:  “My mother’s baby sister’s daughter-in-law, twice removed, from a previous marriage passed on yesterday. She isn’t on Facebook, but I want her to know that she will be missed. Please send a Hallelujah through Jesus directly to my family in their time of sorrow”

Real Life Translation: I’ve been low on likes this week, and even though I know Damn well that NOBODY on my Facebook page knows or even really cares about this person’s death, my sharing it with total strangers on social media with somehow help them to Rest in Peace, and make me feel better about my stance with humanity on Facebook

My Personal Commentary: Stop This Today people! While I know that often times people need support and words of encouragement to help grieve the loss of a loved one, I Don’t however believe that making a PR broadcast about something so heavily sensitive and somber about someone that none of your FB friends even know is necessary. We have to start discerning what is FB-worthy, and what needs to be left at the alter.

Facebook Post: “OMG! I absolutely LOVE my natural hair! My twa is really coming along! All-Natural everything! Natural hair is all of the things that a perm Never was or will be! If you still wear a perm I will throw rocks at you dipped in coconut oil and shea butter! #Naturalista #NaturalIsLife #FroLife #TeamNoPerm #HappilyNappy #NewJourney #EmbracingMyBeauty”

Real Life Translation: I am twelve minutes and ten seconds from putting on a hoody and some sunglasses, and taking my Naturally Happy ass to the store to buy a relaxer! I’m in the in-between stage where I look like Celie, but wish I looked like the perfect natural broads on YouTube! I will continue writing posts like this, however, to get praises from the other natural gals, and to convince myself and others that I’m ok with my newly embarked upon  natural pilgrimage right now.

My Personal Commentary: Take some Hairfinity vitamins, oil your scalp, drink more water, and shut Up! We get it! You’ve “gone natural” and now feel like you’ve somehow catapulted yourself into a more superior category of life.We also know that you aren’t 100% confident in your new look and that you want your FB friends to give you the stamp of approval that will make you feel more comfortably entwined in your naps. Nope! You have to know that the type of acceptance you’re seeking comes from within sweetheart!

Facebook Post: “Team Single! I don’t Need no man! These ninjas ain’t ish no way! I’m too good to settle! #TeamIndependent #TeamMe #WorkinOnSelf #WaitingOnMyBoaz”

Real Life Translation: I can’t get/keep a man to save my damn life! The closest I can get is becoming a side-chick or mistress, so I’ve just convinced myself that I’m too good for anyone instead of looking within and trying to find out what the Real problem may be. I don’t know how to just be cool and wait it out. Besides, I’d be devastated if Facebook knew that I was actually lonely and frustrated.

My Personal Commentary: Do You Boo, but just be honest about it! At the end of the day you must also always remember that nine times out of ten FB sees right through you! If you don’t have a man, who cares! It’s better to just be yourself or be quiet!

Facebook Post: “The approbation of the propaganda, that lies within the afrocentrism of the gentrification, intertwined throughout the economical mass incarceration of the negroid enlightenment, is that the Black Lives Matter Movement is coonery”

Real Life Translation: I Just discovered books and that there was more to life than what I half-paid attention to in college. So now, I’m regurgitating everything that comes across my eyeballs, in deep need of some serious intellectual guidance. I post these types of things to sound Really smart and culturally conscious. In reality, I’m kind of an idiot.

My Personal Commentary: While I applaud everyone’s journey towards a higher acquisition of knowledge, there are those that we want to punch in the face for being so annoyingly overly cultivated that they begin to just sound foolish. We’re all happy that you finally decided to be smart. Just know what you’re talking about before you start pressing ‘post’ on FB.

When all is said and done, I believe the bulk of these situations lie within the need to feel accepted and validated on some level. Facebook has become the biggest platform for self-reflection, gross narcissism, and lack of esteem… We’re doing things to be liked, thus our continued propensity to #DoItForTheLikes

What You Said on Facebook, and What it Actually Meant in Real Life Pt. I

red-hands-woman-creative-large

I was talking to a friend over the weekend and as we randomly chit-chatted, she brought up one of her top peeves concerning people and what they post on social media. It seems as though we are in an era that is totally, and sometimes disturbingly, obsessed with how our lives are portrayed in Internet Land. Heck, I have even fallen victim to this at times and had to disengage and reexamine my darn purpose. So I get. I really do…Well kinda. The thing is, I’m usually able to realize when I’m being extra and going overboard. Unfortunately, most aren’t.

So, I came up with a two-part humorous list of all of the wondrously painful things that we all keep seeing on Facebook, and what they probably mean in real life.

*Please note that my ridiculous susceptibility towards over exaggeration & mirthful sarcasm will be oozing from these examples. Don’t get your feelings hurt trying to figure out if I’m talking about you*

Facebook Post: “I gave a homeless person $4,000, built a new Ark for Noah and them, and saved five kittens from death on the way to work.”

Real Life Translation: “I gave a bucket-boy my $3 left over from my egg McMuffin meal this morning; but I need to trump this story up to make it sound exceptionally monumental so I can get a lot of likes, and people will think I’m Such a great person”

Facebook Post: *Insert picture of impoverished chicken breast next to some slimy-looking, over cooked green stuff and a piece of Texas Toast*…”I throw Down in the kitchen too! Bae knows what it do! #Chef #EatinGood #WayToHisStomach”

Real Life Translation: “I keep cooking this same dry ass chicken, and it’s even starting to look/taste gross to me and Bae; but Facebook will make me feel better if I post it up and filter it to make it look like a sautéed jerk entree.”

Facebook Post: “I woke up this morning to fresh rose petals laid gently beside my bed, and a wonderful hand-written note on vintage stationary saying ‘I Love You and I’ll see you later! Your breakfast is in the kitchen being prepared by Martha Stewart’…He’s a Winner! Always & Forever! Will & Jada Love!”

Real Life Translation: “I haven’t seen this negro since last Thursday when he brought me an old bagel and some cold coffee before he told me he needed some space; but I’ve exaggerated and lied about our whole situation on FB all this time, so I could never tell the truth Now!”

Facebook Post: *Insert eighth sweaty workout picture posted this week by the same person*…”In the gym. Gym Time. Get it right, Keep it Tight! Summer bodies are made in the Winter. Grinding. FitBit on FIRE! Gettin my Sexy Back!”

Real Life Translation: “I’m really Extremely insecure about my body, my looks, and my whole damn life. I come to the gym because everybody else does it, and it seems like the cool thing to do. I post up these pics so often because I need my FB friends to reassure me that I’m doing a good job and look good. However, I know the gratification that I seek out will never truly be enough…”

Facebook Post: “Think positive. Be positive. Do positive. Read your bible. Hum a Hymn, and go see Jesus every morning like I do! Keep that negativity Outta my timeline!”

Real Life Translation: “I actually Just got off of the phone with my friend, who isn’t really a friend, but we just use each other for gossip. We talked about so many people so bad that they would cry if they had heard our conversation, lol. I have to post up stuff like this though to front, so people won’t ever think that I’m in fact the messy one”

 

Whew!! Now go gather yourself and check your profile for any of these violations! Stay Tuned for Part II!!

10 Things You Should Never Say to a Stay-at-Home Mom

IMG_4829

So I promised my audience that I would get back to the initial goal of this blog, which was to highlight Mom life and try to keep our sanities intact  through humorous dialogue! However, in true fashion of a Mother’s diminishing attention span and tendency to become overwhelmingly sidetracked, I fell off course a bit and needed to do some housekeeping in a few other areas of life.

Welp, Momma’s back and I’m starting the New Year off just like I ended the last: Coming for your jugular!

While I’ve only been a part of the SAHM’s club for a little over 6 months now, I’ve still seen and heard some opinions and commentary that truly leave me miffed.

One of the main annoyingly vexing speculations that I’ve run across is the idea that being a SAHM seems to equate to some as the ‘easy life’ or that we’re a sorority of self-entitled spoiled brats, who sip green tea with our pedicured toes propped up, and binge-watch OITNB episodes all day, while scoffing at our fellow 9-5ers. Not So! What I have actually learned in my own experience is that being a SAHM is actually more demanding, challenging, and sometimes surprisingly more stressful than when I actually did go to work everyday. So I sat and pondered on a couple of the most aggravating things that us SAHMs don’t want to hear come out of your face Ever Again…

  1. “You Look Tired” – My GOD this is the quickest way to get on my ish list! Nope, I’m not tired. I just started doing my make-up to reflect a zombie. It’s the new fashion statement. Dork! Of course I’m tired!! My 4 year old has the energy level of a hipster on speed, and my 1 year old refuses to take naps. I used all of my energy when I went to go pee and I’m going to use the rest of it to punch you in the face…Even outside of the context of being a Mom, this is just the most blatantly rude thing you could ever say to someone. I’m going to start responding back with nasty narration such as “Yes! I’m as tired as your current relationship…”
  2. “What Do You Do All Day?” – Ummmm, sustain human life and breathe. What do you do all day?? Just because I’m not going to a job doesn’t mean that my day serves no purpose.
  3. “OMG! I slept ALL Day and I’m SO well-rested!” – Insert the emoji guy that’s blowing steam out of his nose and then re-read number 1. If you just noticed that I was tired, and I just told you that I take naps on the toilet to get rest, then how in the Entire universe do you think that I want to hear about how wonderfully soothing it was for you to count sheep…Again, punch your Face!
  4. “You Didn’t Cook Dinner??” – Nope! Matter fact, I myself have only had time to eat a handful of cheerios that were left on the table from my kid’s breakfast. I’m not apologizing for it either. You want dinner cooked? Well, I want a wine cellar and a 24/7 live jazz band in the basement…We all have dreams here don’t we??? You better go find some milk to go with those cheerios!
  5. “Why Do You Get Up So Early” – Again, being a SAHM doesn’t equal vacation time. I have a pre-schooler that has to be in his classroom by 8:15am, and he needs at least an hour after his morning pep talk to get his life together. Then there’s the 1 year old…yeah…moving on to number 6.
  6. “Why Don’t You Ever Pick Up the Phone?” – Because your rude butt calls me Everyday during nap time!!! Do you understand that during nap time I turn into a mime in my own home?!? There is no talking, there is no walking, there is no moving around, there is no sound! Hell! If I could figure out how to stop breathing and still be alive I would! I need this kid to sleep for HOURS! You’re calling me to talk about what somebody shared on Facebook is of No importance to me right now. Even when it isn’t nap time, Mommy’s cell phone is probably being used as a launching missile in a vicious war between Captain America and Iron Man.
  7. “You Never Invite Me Over During the Day” – To do what exactly?? Kids sniff out newbies and your presence will only make them feel as if the normal routine can be shifted or ignored all together. Yes, I’m at home all day, but there’s a strict structure that has to be followed to keep the entire household on track. You can come over and play with me later after their Dad gets home.
  8. “You Haven’t Had Your Hair/Nails Done in Forever!” – Because that’s Totally my top priority now that I keep my bonnet on all day to prevent Devin from driving his trains through my fro, as well as he also seems to be fascinated with my no-chip and thinks it’s amusing to pick it off. My appearance looks just the way that I choose for it to, and when an occasion calls for otherwise, I know how to get that taken care of. My hair and nails are probably healthier than yours anyway because I’m not messing with them all the time…Lemme go sip this tea though.
  9. “How Are You Not Giving Your Husband Sex Every Night??” – Ok, first of all, I don’t give my husband sex. It’s something that we both want and enjoy on an equally loving level. Second of all, by the time I get a chance to shower at midnight once the baby goes to sleep, I’m half-dead once my head hits the pillow. Again, you think I do nothing all day but sit tight and simmer for my beau. Ha! You better research some real life!
  10. “I Wish I Could Be a Stay-at-Home Mom” (now insert a funky smirk and some rolled eyes) – Listen here, because this is the one that I detest the most. Don’t wish for what you know Not of! Furthermore, don’t throw hater shade my way because of the way that my life affords me to live. You wanna be a SAHM, then do it! You better know what you’re getting yourself into and be choosing that role for good reasons. The old saying is still very relevant here; “The grass is always greener on the other side.” Thing is, you gotta figure out how I keep mine watered first! 😉

4 Times This Week You Realized You Didn’t Have Your Sh*t Together For 2016

Taraji P Crying

Don’t Cry Now…

It’s the dawn of a new day. The calm before the storm. You’re about to rewrite history and redefine the future. There’s only one problem. You just decided to embark on this revolutionary rendezvous like ten minutes ago and the New Year is like four seconds away…

We do this same exhausting jitterbug Every darn year and you all still think that this plan is effective. We wait until around December 1st to decide that we need Iyanla to fix our lives, and in 30 days! Not that there is anything wrong with implementing, fostering, and embracing change, but people have to learn the key effective components of simplicity and living within a reality-based existence. You Cannot and Will Not become a size 2 by January 1st, after being a size 24 on December 20th, and deciding that you were going to go on a crash diet, detox, do 400 burpees everyday, and buy a waist trainer! You may die instead. I’m just saying.

We have become a society of instant gratification. We don’t know how to brace ourselves, tune into our true needs, and then thoroughly strategize and construct a pragmatic plan of action.

Who knows their 6 Ps?

“Proper Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance.” 

Poor Planning GIF

So in true essence of my viciously ingenuous therapy, I just wanted to keep you guys grounded a bit on the Eve of this delightful New Year. I only hope to bring light to your truth and inspire you to do a bit better…Or in the  most emphatically awakening manner ever, reassure your soul that it’s actually OK to be just where you are life! 😉

4 Times This Week You Realized You Didn’t Have Your Sh*t Together For 2016…

  1. When You Logged Into Facebook – I  don’t know what’s in the water these past couple days, but social media has been showing its narrow little behind lately! Everybody is either really angry, really happy, really racist, really in love, really annoying, really desperate, really successful, really fertile, really a do-gooder, really too serious, really phony, really lying, and/or all of the above. Meanwhile, you’ve been sitting on your couch this week, intensely absorbing all of this insanely ridiculous rubbish into your mental; and now you’re wondering who the hell you are, who the hell have you been, and how the hell do you become ALL of these things that you have been seeing. It’s only human nature to compare and contrast ourselves with others. In some instances it can be quite healthy. In some cases it can be toxic. Whatever side of the force of nature that you’ve taken to, Do note that Facebook has found a way to victoriously ruffle people’s feathers and cause them to rethink their entire damn existence and purpose in life!
  2. When You Switched Over Your Savings to Your Checking, Paid Off Most of Your Credit Cards, and Still Managed to Build Up a Nice Little Nest Egg to Take You Into the New Year, and Then Sallie Mae Called  – You probably shrieked with this one. Sallie Mae is the Devil. Student Loans are the most effective systematically controlling way to always keep you in debt! They can’t be filed with bankruptcy accounts, they refinance into the cost of three more tuitions, and they will garnish your $19/hour salary and think nothing of it. Yes, there are some who have mastered the art of their payment arrangement and pride themselves in that accomplishment. However, the bulk of most higher education having, useless-degree-toting citizens that I know, wouldn’t mind pulling a Michael Myers on ole Sallie! Just when you thought you had your finances stable, your academic front money from 20 years ago reminds you to go have several seats.
  3. When It Dawned on You That You Still Had the Same Dead-End Job   – The goal in life is to always aim higher and seek better. This holds especially true when we ponder over our jobs and careers and where we would like to be in our futures. The problem is that this amazing vision isn’t always so easily attainable. The job/position we entered into back in 2006 that we said we would occupy no longer than 2-3 years, has now turned into about 10. This is ok if you’re already in your desired profession, career, Company, and/or position. This may not be ok, however, if you’re still the Paralegal whose plan was to ultimately become a Partner (please reference Rachel from American drama series Suits). Now here you are on December 28th trying to figure out why you haven’t gotten your life together yet, and realizing that you just may not have your ish together like you thought you did!
  4. When You Were Honest Enough With Yourself To Actualize That You Didn’t Need To – Are you smiling yet? You should be because the entire premise of this post should’ve just come full circle for you. You are fine just the way you are!!! Don’t let society, Facebook, Finances, Career choices, a new year, or a blog measure your greatness! At this point you’re either Extremely upset with me, or remarkably enlightened. You actually read through this the entire time judging yourself and thinking that you didn’t have your sh*t together…Truth be told, you’re only as “together” as you deem necessary and acceptable. If I go into 2016 with my same baggage from 2016, I’m actually going to be ok with that and just go buy me some new cuter luggage. 🙂 See where I’m going with this?? Enhance what you have, improve what you can, keep what you need, and be content with the rest. Make orange juice outta lemons and always consider your glass half full — of Wine of course! 😉

Amy S Wine gif

Now go have a FANTASTIC evening and bring in your New Year  just the way that you want to…Me?? Im going to go get my Sh*t Together!! *grabs Chardonnay bottle*
