Hi Loves! Today is my “Friday” if you will…..the last working day before the holiday begins. That means tomorrow Lennon will be out scrambling around with the rest of the last minute shoppers grabbing whatever she can find to wrap or throw in a gift bag. I hate shopping this time of year but I’m lame and have been avoiding it for too long. It just doesn’t feel like Christmas to me this year for some odd reason. Can’t understand why really but it just seems like it crept in and whispered “Hey Bitch, you have four days to get your shit together, clock starts now, run bitch, run!!!!” Ok, now onto Simon’s Takeover. Last week he had a very unique story which got quite the attention. Today, he brings up some things that I really relate to. It’s way all too familiar. I think some of you will agree. Please check out Simon’s blog as he is exceptional. Not only is a fantastic writer but an incredible friend. Planet Simon
I despise sugar coating anything…Unless it’s cookies or shit like that. You ask my opinion I’m going to be straight forward. There’s something genuine about people that are honest, blunt and just straight forward I think. I appreciate that. Whether it’s good or bad….I welcome the honesty.
You know when people say something like “Do you want the good news or the bad news first?” I always want the bad news first. Hit me up with it and let’s work out how to flip that to good news. Nothing is that bad is it? I choose to see the good in everything, at least I try my best to.
In most cases that bad news that someone tells me really isn’t that bad at all. They’re just a bit overly dramatic and are making it into something that really isn’t that big of a deal.
Seems as if some people choose to see the bad, the negative, the downside in things more so than the opportunity, challenge, or obstacle that it is. I love to find answers and fix things. At work they often call me “The Fixer” as I love to find answers and fix shit. I like to think outside of the box and make things happen. I love manipulating the system too as well to see what I find and to make things work.
So, you see, sugar coating is really meant for cookies & shit, not everyday scenarios. This is real life so don’t sprinkle sugar on top of my life or problems. I’m a grown ass adult, spit it out and let’s fix it!
Have a great weekend Loves….I’ve missed you!
