Birthday Vacation Countdown: I'm Beyond Your Peripheral Vision

People talk a lot of shit. Eventually the shit-slinging will come your way. Sometimes it will come from someone you love and thought had your best insterest at heart. You can't control this. I know I'm not a religious person and that my relationship with all things Jesus has been reduced to catch phrases and punchlines, but one thing I've learned to do in my old age is to "let go and let god," whomever your god may be.

I read a quote once that read "What other people think of you is none of your business" and I was all WORD?? But it's true. If someone thinks I'm mean or rude or boring or fat or ugly (someone besides me & The Voices, that is) it's not my problem. This is me--take it or leave it. And if you decide to leave it, well, that's one less birthday cheer I have to write on the Facebook.

Please know that if you can look in the mirror and be happy with what you've accomplished that day, it doesn't even matter what your neighbor thinks. Fuck that neighbor. She's got too much time on her hands anyway. Why is she all up in yours when her kids are running the streets like vagabonds? Fuck her whole life. And just enjoy yours!

*smooches...loving me as is, at least for today*
I could get used to this "wise" bullshit...
