Here it is – January 2nd, 2018 (!?!) and I am supposed to come up with something inspiring…something positive and happy…and all I can think is, why is this so hard? Why, when life is so awesome – do I just want to break down and cry? I am so thankful for what I have, and yet – heartbreak is everywhere. Which is why, it is time for a detox. Time to detox the small, mean, broken, negative people. Time to put them in a time out, or chuck them into the sea, and fill the void with those that matter.
So like these peonies, I hope you feel beautiful today. Like REALLY beautiful. Not like – I want to be a supermodel beautiful – not that we would mind – lol! But more like – ‘I own every last bit of the gorgeous person that I am’ kind of beautiful. Because you see, we all, each one of us, has a beautiful story, of strength, courage, determination, and sass. And that strength, and that sass, and that courage means so much more than fake implants, and painted on moles, and little black dresses.
It has been said that deep pink and red peonies stand for honor, respect and prosperity. And so this year, I plan to honor the beauty that life is, respect the joys and bright sparks that make this world shine, and desire you to prosper and grow, not just financially, but most importantly, within your heart, and in your soul. Each one – help one. And maybe, just maybe, one day, we can have a pride in all that it is to be a part of the human condition.
So here we go 2018 – ever onward – happy and ready to click away in 4″ heels to bigger and better horizons. We are going to OWN this year and slap it silly.
