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.
It's okay to be really angry at Jesse James for ending up with that Kat Von D. I mean, he wasn't a real stand-up guy to begin with, but this?!
It's okay to not mind at all having to wear a uniform to my new job. Sure, it's dorky and ugly, but I can now get from What Shall I Wear Today to Fully Dressed and Ready to Go in about three minutes. And it's not like anyone shows me up when I get there. We all look dorky and ugly.
It's okay to tell my 12 year old kid that he stinks - out loud and in front of his brother - whenever I notice that he does. I'm the only person in the world who will ever tell him that because I love him, unlike everyone else who will tell him to hurt his feelings. And for the record, it's ok to tell his friends they stink too, if they all happen to pile into my car after two hours of practice.
It's okay to pay $4.95 for a bag of veggie chips half the size of a small bag of regular potato chips, because they are the most awesome million dollar snack out there.
It's okay to have lost interest in Glee when the hype got so out of control that I felt like my best kept secret had been revealed to the entire world.
It's okay to watch Sister Wives. And, it's okay to hate Robyn because, admit it, she'd be a threat to anyone. Even if Kody is a pig and you are merely one of a herd of wives.
It's okay to wonder about that girl's story - the one whose husband was allegedly shot by pirates while jet skiing. Something is just not right there.
