Put On Your Big Girl Panties...

Those that are close to me know that I am a big fan of the "Put on your big girl panties, and deal with it" phrase. It resonates with me. there are some days that it is a lot easier than others, but that is kind of the point of the phrase in the first place. To me it is the ultimate definition of "adult". Being an adult has little to do with age, or desire to have fun, or how you spend your free time. Being an adult means being able to get the necessary things in life done.

In the past when I say this phrase the image of a gigantic pair of granny panties pops into my head. Today however, I said it, and realized that that image doesn't apply to me. An amazingly sexy pair of panties that make me feel powerful is a much more appropriate image. My mind has been putting the em-pha-sis on the wrong syl-abul this whole time.

It isn't
BIG "girl panties"

"big-girl" panties

There is strength, and maturity in your choice of panties, as well as in your choice of inspirational images.

The Year of the DORK

It's my birthday!

I have decided that I have been holding back my true self long enough, and that this year I am going to celebrate the DORK that I truly am. I have always been quite self-conscious, always wanting to appear mature and pulled together. I am realizing that this leads to quite a boring life.

It's time to be a dork. So fair warning to the ones that love me, the ones that hang out with me, and especially the ones that travel with me...This will be the year of the "long arm self-photo". This will be the year of the Segway tour. This will be the year of doing the things I want to without worrying if I look like a dork.

A Wish for 2012

Today is the day after New Year's Day, because yesterday I spent the day with family. I thought about doing a post, but my blog isn't as high a priority as spending time with my loved ones(truth). I also thought about doing the average "resolutions" post, and decided that is what it would be...average. So instead I thought about doing a "bucket list" post, but ultimately I'm the only one that cares about my bucket list.

In the end I have decided on this...

May 2012 bring you;
the LOVE that you want,
the FRIENDS that you need,
the STRENGTH to get through the tough times,
the COURAGE to do the truly amazing things,
the SUPPORT to make great changes,
and LAUGHTER daily.

Happy New Year, It's going to be AH-mazing.
