and people like me!

Yesterday was not my day.  Just not at all.  It was literally one of those days when the world was slingshoting poop at my head.  And, as much as I tried to take cover, I got nailed a few times.

I did manage to shake it off last night, so that was good.  But if someone asked me to live that day all over again, I’d probably throw poop at their head instead.

In light of yesterday and all its negativity, I’d like to try to shake that off.  It’s a new day.  Things are happening.  And once you get on the negativity train in this business, you might as well give up.  Though I never do. But that is why poop gets thrown at my head.

So, a few days ago, I mentioned that workshop I did.  Welp, after said workshop, I signed up for some online workshops from the same ladies.  I’ll be doing various things, and I’ve decided to share some of them here.  I’ve actually decided to try to do stuff on this blog on a daily basis–whether it’s writing, sharing photos, or sharing things I stumble upon.  I’ve realized bad days like yesterday will probably happen a lot over the next several months, and writing has always been my outlet.  Why not return to my roots?

This exercise is part of this thing called the Love Club–which is all about fostering self-love and being your own best friend.  Our first dare was to serenade ourselves with a song written for us.  In Christine’s book, she asks readers to write down 108 things they love about themselves.  And this list was a suggested jumping off point.  So, I decided to attempt my own list.  I’m gonna spare y’all any videos of me singing said list to myself.  🙂
