Truth 17: It’s Not About Your Pant Size (oh, and love yourself dammit!)

 

I’m ranting, but ranting from the purest love in my heart. If my rant helps even one person feel better about themselves or changes the view of one person, then it was worth throwing a very public fit with no makeup, unbrushed hair, etc…

Everyone on TV, in movies and magazines tells you that you need to be better. Screw them. You are beautiful as you are.

I love you guys and just want all of you to be happy and healthy!

PS: I know there are other sub-plots to the movie like skinny girls are insecure too, etc… I’m just covering the main idea of the movie I’m about to throw down on, but don’t worry, I didn’t miss the other subtexts that zoomed by in the blink of an eye.

 

Have a great weekend everyone!

Love ya!

Truth 16: Eulogy for a Beloved Friend

 

Many of you saw my post on suicide from earlier this year, but what I didn’t share was the video eulogy I did for my dear friend (well, if I’m being honest FTF) Thommi since I couldn’t attend his memorial. Not attending it was so desperately hard, but I hope my video captured my feelings about Thommi taking his own life and the joy he brought to so many while here.

If you are AT ALL thinking of taking your life or know someone who is, PLEASE get help or give help. It’s never worth it.

I’m posting the suicide response video first, so those of you who have not seen it can see me raw and aching and know first hand the devastation it causes.

The second is my video eulogy for Thommi and has not been posted before on my blog.

I was just talking with him the week before he shot himself and had no clue what was about to happen. Watch it if you are even contemplating something permanent as a solution to something. You can see a tiny snippet of how the people you left behind feel.

So PLEASE reach out if you need help. There is NO SHAME in admitting you need help. I see a shrink and a therapist. I’m admitting it to everyone and am proud to do so because it takes courage to seek help and openly admit you could use an extra hand to hold. Find that hand and hold on as you CAN get through whatever it is.

YAY! WOO HOO! HOT DAMN! YAY!

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the prayers, support and love.

It means more than you could ever begin to know.

Truth 10: Learn to Laugh at Yourself

Irony 1: I had basil in my teeth and didn’t realize it.
Irony 2: The freezy face “they” selected for this video is utterly appropriate and awful.

Enjoy my horror! 😉

 

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!!

LOVE YOU GUYS! XOXOXOXO
