runs with silver platter

It is ok to talk about yourself.
It is GREAT to talk up your qualities.
It is amazing to hear about your struggles.

Why not be amazed with your human being-ness? Why pretend otherwise?
No need to apologize for.........anything.
"Sorry" should be eliminated.

(true apologies for a real event that needs mending is acceptable)

Being confused about choices is real and also ok. 
Reveal the monsters. Revel in them, even. Why not?

This is called life and the best use of it is to run with it.

If a carrot is dangled - grab!
If a wooden nickel is offered - bite it and move on!
If a bowl of cherries is plunked down in front of you, eat them and have a pit spitting contest!
Of course, you know the lemons-make-a-drink cliche.

Most important...
If a silver platter is handed to you -  run! 
And tell us all about it so that we can cheer, or cry, or fight the fight with you. 

Yes, I am currently influenced by watching "Downton Abbey" and seeing all the rules and regulations that people lived by. Have we really changed all that much? Sometimes I don't feel that we have...
Behavior, propriety, privacy and embarassment. 


Be pissed.
Be aroused.
Be astounded.
Be negative.
Be positive.
Be full on and luscious.
Be real.
and stop saying "sorry" for it.

Wave the silver platter so that we know to give you a standing ovation.
