I Run the Boy’s Club

I RUN THE BOY’S CLUB, DON’T YOU KNOW THAT?

Yes, I’ve run it for years. I’ve run it in different industries, in countless boardrooms, meetings, events, and shops. And I’m fucking good at it.

Please don’t be fooled by the big boobs, flowing hair, makeup, and smiles.

Being kind and compassionate doesn’t mean that I am just some little girl, dabbling. Continue reading “I Run the Boy’s Club”

You’ll Wish You Had Started Today

You’ll Wish You Had Started Today

Recently I was journaling and reflecting on how a year ago I started a layer. And a year before that I started a different layer. And the year before that… etc.

FOUR YEARS AGO I STARTED.

Four years ago, while sitting on an airplane with a crushed hand, on the way home from a totally VIP rockstar trip to Vegas, I sat there with a pad of paper and an idea. Continue reading “You’ll Wish You Had Started Today”

Darkness

Darkness

“Does any of this even make sense?”

“Am I just wasting my time?”

“I’m the one that allowed this to happen, maybe there is just something wrong with me…”

“Fuck it, I’ll just stay in bed today instead.”

All things that went through my head this morning when I woke up out of a dead sleep at 4:50 am to see that yet again, someone didn’t follow through on what they promised they would do.

Once again, I let myself get a little bit of hope towards someone else’s empty promises. Continue reading “Darkness”

Shine in All Your Glory

YOU’RE JUST TOO MUCH

If I had a dollar for every time I heard that…. I’d own an island.

“You’re just too much.”
“Do you even know what you want?”
“How can you expect that?”

“Why do you need more than what you have right now?”

I was told these things most of my life. I was made to feel like I was out of line for wanting the things that I wanted. I was made to feel like I was “too much” when I would fully express myself as who I am at my core. So it’s no wonder that I spent most of my life trying to tone it down.

Remember…

Remember…

Just remember… how you do one thing is how you do ALL things.

Pay attention.
Don’t be a lazy ass. In ANY areas of your life.
Be present.
Do the work. Yes, even when you don’t feel like it.
Call your mom.
Say please and thank you.
Smile. Continue reading “Remember…”

Live for the Weekend?

Live for the Weekend?

I was standing at the fair last night and couldn’t help but overhear a conversation that two women were having about how bad it sucked that they had to go to work the next day. Yes, I also was tired and the thought of waking up at 6 am the next morning didn’t sound too exciting to me either. But they went on to say “ya, but tomorrow is Friday and then we have the whole weekend to do whatever we want. I WORK FOR THE WEEKEND. I LIVE FOR THE WEEKEND”.

My Tattoo

My Tattoo

I was worried all day. I planned as much as I could because I thought that might help.

It didn’t.

I puke all of my guts up in the car before we even go in.

I was going to pass out. I knew it. Continue reading “My Tattoo”
