Now that the frozen song is stuck in your head, I will get to my point.
There have been a few things bothering me, I just can’t seem to get past it. Silly. Why is it when so much good is happening in our lives, we can’t get past the miniscule shit.
Here are my tips in getting past the really dumb negative crap. In full transparency, I am writing this so I follow my own dumb advice.
Make a List
…and check it twice, actually, 100 times should do it. Write down 10 things that are completely kickass that have happened to you. Maybe it is your 40th birthday party, that you didn’t want, but are secretly thrilled so many people care about. Or…the addition of a 7th dog, because people are dumb and give away their animals when shit gets complicated. Write it down, read it at night, read it in the morning, tattoo that shit on your arm and don’t fucking forget it.
Phone a friend
Call one of those badasses you consider a friend and talk it out. Then call another one and do it again, then text another one and rehash the whole damn thing. If they are great friends, they’ll listen, sympathize and then tell you to get the hell over it.
Write a blog
Apparently, it is therapeutic for me. Maybe all you guys are like my bestest friends in the whole wide world. Aah…you like me, you really like me.
Move, the f**k on
I know it’s easier said than done, I told you that already. Mope around a bit, feel sorry for yourself, and then suck it up buttercup, you got shit to do.
The world is bigger than our stupid problems and we need to check our pessimism at the door and force ourselves to be positive. There are so many great things happening to YOU, to ME, to ALL of us. Let’s build each other up, you never know who is struggling, don’t assume you know their story.
And there’s wine, and kickboxing when sometimes you just need to punch the shit out of a 150 pound inanimate object that can’t hit back or “whine.” See what I did there?
Keep publishing awesome “musings.”
All good advice. I would add one. Don’t associate with people who constantly complain about everything and are a negative force. If you hang around with assholes, you’ll become an asshole.
YES ON THIS! Move the F on. We badasses have to, we must! To get things done. To lift up other women and be not only ok, but badass. Thank you.
