I'm going to try something new. I stole this idea from Whispering Writer, over at Airing My Dirty Laundry, who stole it from Glamour Magazine. They have a section called "Hey, It’s Okay" - a list of a bunch of things to be okay about. I really like this, because I'm working so hard on trying to be OKAY with everything in my life/head/heart and to stop judging myself for everything I say/do/feel.
I don't want to be a total copycat, though, so I won't call it "It's Okay Tuesday", like WW did. It'll just be "It's Okay". Today.
It's Okay to cry at everything Olympics-related, even the commercials.
It's Okay to soothe the tears with chocolate. Like Cadbury eggs, maybe. Just sayin.
It's Okay to have the First Episode of Season 2 of Glee marked on the calendar.
It's Okay to not want to be a teacher anymore, even though it's the only job for which I seem to be qualified.
It's Okay to not Tweet or Twitter or whatever it is, and to not even know what it is, and not even care.
It's Okay not to watch the Kardashians or The Jersey Shore or The Bachelor, even though the rest of the civilized world is doing it.
It's Okay to boss other people's kids around, if they're doing something inappropriate or dangerous, and you're the only adult around. It takes a village.
