I had an interesting conversation with a good friend last night. Conversation may be overstating it really, it was just a few texts. But the gist of it was that confidence and attitude can be just as hot, if not more so, than actual physical attributes. I absolutely agree with that. I have been attracted to someone for many reasons but not only because they are physically beautiful to my eye.
I can admit that I have wanted to crawl into a hole and not come out until I was perfect physically. But who defines perfect? Maybe I am perfect, for me. Well, I'm sure I'm not, but I'll be working on that in the new year. Which is not the point. The point is, most of the time I feel ok about how I look. But I feel awesome about the person I am. I've written before that it has taken me a long time to become the person I want to be. I think that's probably true for everyone. Whether you grow up in an alcoholic household like I did, and see how you don't want to end up. Or you have people around you who show you how you do want to end up. But you get to chose. You can decide your life sucks, you've been handed a raw deal and you could live out your days a bitter asshole who thinks the world owes you a favor. Or you can turn it around, make your life better, stand on your own and just fucking do it. I prefer the just fucking do it way.
My business is not as successful as I wish it were, but I'm doing my own thing and I love that. It's fun and stressful and at the end of a hard day, I feel damn good that I did something I'm proud of. And I put my own stamp on it.
If you want to know the truth I think I'm a pretty cool chick. I have amazing friends, strange things regularly happen to me, I surround myself with great music every day, and no one rocks the purple hair and G cup better than I do dammit! Love yourself and people around you will love you too :)
