For Becky

This blog is for Becky w/o the good hair. The woman who is tired of putting on a show and is ready to live her life, her way. She wants to have the most fun for the most value. Becky w/o the good hair is tired of apologizing for who she is, and she is tired of not feeling at home in her own space. She’s ready to use her voice. First, she has to find it. Becky wants to feel comfortable in her clothes, but she also wants to look good, not for other people, but for herself. She is learning that true confidence comes from the value she puts on herself not from the validation she gets from others. I am here to cheer her on and cheer her up every step of the way. If you have some positive and hilarious contribution, please feel free to send them to me to be featured.

Now I'm Here, Wherever That Is
I wanted to share my story as an act of compassion. We are all human and we all go through so much on a daily basis. I thought if I could reach out and say, “Hey, I’m just like you. You’re not alone. I’m struggling with you.” Maybe if we show each other some love and compassion, together we can get through this. Maybe you can’t speak out and say how hard this has been, how much of a struggle this is, or how it just doesn’t seem like there’s any light at the end of the tunnel; but I can. I have been at the bottom (so many times) and I am here to tell you that there is always a way to climb back up.
My blog is a resource. The place you come to have a conversation and read or tell stories about real life. This is the place to come when you want to be reminded that you’re not alone. As women, hell, as human beings, we all go through the nightmare of pretending to have our sh*t together on a daily basis. This is also a place that reminds you to look at your life and laugh at it. And if you’re having one of those days when you can’t laugh (because we all do) then come on over here and laugh at mine.
I don’t have all the answers but I do know two things. Life will continue to knock me down and each and every time I will get up stronger and wiser. I invite you to follow along and laugh with me as I am self-actualizing and realizing that it’s not as easy as it looks on the TV. These are my stories (cue the Law & Order theme).
