It's Okay - #2

This is my second shot at It's Okay. 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.

When your kid is pitching and his best friend slams a double off him, it's okay to stick your tongue out at his mom across the bleachers.

It's okay to eat sushi and teriyaki in the same day, even if both included tempura side dishes.

It's okay to enjoy teaching kids who want to be in school, and not so much, the ones who don't.

It's okay to sit on Expedia for an hour, planning trips you can't remotely afford, because hope is a really powerful thing.

It's okay to cheat on Sudoku if it's late at night and you won't be able to sleep unless you finish the puzzle.  Only one number, though.

It's okay to be insanely happy that your teenager chose to have dinner with the family, over his friends, even if it was a free dinner out.


  1. Love the last one the most! All though, when my son played sports, I wasn't above sticking out my tongue!

  2. Sushi and teriyaki..divine.

  3. And it is OK to stick my tongue out back! Love this section!
