Good Humor

When I locked myself out of the house at 5:15 and could neither get back in or go anywhere, I have to appreciate my ability to just sort of laugh about it and go get coffee. This is NOT the person I was 10 years ago. I’d have beat myself up mentally for hours and let it ruin my whole day. Instead, I rolled with it.


I get that at Amazon my strong nature + lack of penis, make me “difficult” or “aggressive” or “whatever other douchey thing they want to say about me in my review” but the truth is, I’m grateful for my voice and my strong opinions and my ability to stand up for my right to speak and the right of others to speak.

Knowing When to Say When

I was done by 4 PM yesterday. All done with humanity for the day. I knew I’d get mad during bowling. I knew I’d not be kind. I knew myself. And so I took my ass straight home, skipped bowling, and said “no” to any further communication with the world. Grateful for self-awareness and courage to take care of myself
