My life is nuts and I love it just that way!
My writing is directly from the heart. If I feel it, if I think it, I write it....
The good, the bad and the ugly.
For the most part - Life is GOOD. Soak up every second!!
Live, Love, Laugh.... Spin around until you get dizzy and fall down - then get up an do it again!

Are you wearing that on purpose?
I am not the judgmental type.
I generally roll along with the given life theory of que sera sera...whatever will be, will be. This was all my dad's doing - the peace, love and tie dye pappa that raised me to believe that we're all individuals - unique and special (just like everyone else).
This, in my mind, is why when I see the outlandish outfits some kids put on, I just view it as their expression of individuality. Hair grows back, ear holes close (just not those really friggin' big ones - so don't do it) not a big deal.
To some degree it's fine... Then you really have to say -- come on now... Don't you have a friggin' mirror?
I can often BE that fashion faux pas, so who am I to say? I wear what I like, what I think looks good & expresses my unique personality and what's comfortable without looking trashy or ready for bed. While I am a mama, I don't own yoga pants (no one hit me please) and I never leave the house without a shower, my face on and dressed appropriately.
Driving through an area I don't usually frequent - I noted some of the outfits on the people around me. Now don't for a second think that I'm going to get stereotypical here - because not all of the "holy crap what is she wearing?" was specific to race or gender. It was across the board horrific!
Put it away
Yes, it's hot out. It's summer, sweetie cakes. That doesn't mean all your what nots needs to be hanging out everywhere!
I'm no longer a skinny mini and I'm not a total "big girl" but let's face it - I KNOW that I no longer possess that hot 20/30 something body I was once so proud of and ya know what... I cover that crap UP. I know that spandex and I are not friends, unless it's UNDER my clothing trying to help me fit into that smaller size & keep things in check.
It's an undergarment... NOT the outfit. No one needs to see that!
I get that not everyone is meant to go through life as a size 5. I am one of those not size 5 people - but these young girls/women should not aspire to be size 16-20 - nor should they be wearing a size 8 at a size 18. Sheesh...
Uh, and skinny girls - you're not off the hook either. Just because you CAN wear a tiny little top where everything up to your what nots show - but just not all of your what nots, doesn't mean anyone wants to see it. Well, maybe they do - but don't get all mad that they're looking. You're showing! What do you expect?
Not Sexy Either
This isn't about body image - and I don't think that every young girl or woman should be a size zero. I was a size zero once upon a time and I was not healthy. I fell into the skinny's in bull crap - that was not my body. I don't feel girls should be waifs . I believe they should pay attention to what they put into their bodies to be healthy..and then what they wear to either tone down or accentuate their bodies - to be comfortable with themselves.
It's about self respect and respect for others. Feeling good for the right reasons.
Pull UP your friggin' pants!
While we're talking about things hanging out, I'm not just picking on the girls. This is an across the board rant. Guys... I do NOT want to see your ass! Do you know what's worse than your pants hanging down past your ass crack? Skinny jeans pulled down past your ass crack. Um... Why?
Pull up your pants. Have some respect for yourself & respect for others.
You can't let it all hang out & then get pissed off when people stare or say something. Sure - go be different. Letting your ass hang out is not different - everyone's doing it. Letting all your what nots show for the world to see isn't different.
Put that crap away!
GO BE YOU - YOU ARE ALL YOU NEED TO BE.
Now go check yourself in the mirror and get outta here!
