here's really big news for me!
it's my dad's birthday today.
and i'm doin' great!
two years ago, i crumbled.
which is okay.
it's okay to crumble.
i crumbled and i binged.
i had been eating healthy all year,
and i just fell apart that day.
and i binged my little heart out.
last year i got real mellow and wondered
what i could do to honor my dad's memory.
and i tried real hard to be more of who i
was that day. i missed him a lot.
today i've been feelin' rockin' good.
i smiled, tossed off a 'happy birthday, pop!'
and have been doin' all kindsa stuff i needed
to do today.
all the while feeling like i don't need to
try right now....that i'm honoring him today
cause i am feeling really good about where i'm
at. and i'm living who i am.
in fact.....i told a secret today to a friend.
and you know what???
i think i'm gonna tell it right here.
cause i feel so darn good today.
and it can be a birthday thing....
i made a decision recently.
for me, a very big one.....
i want to be a writer.
and i'm workin' on a book.
and i like doin' it.
i haven't really said that around yet.
how cool is that???
my dad was a writer.
a technical dry kinda writer. we couldn't
be more worlds apart with our styles.
but ya know what?
i'm okay with that!
because there's valid places for both styles.
look at that.
there's valid places for both styles.
for all styles.
and today, i feel real good about livin' my
how totally awesome darn cool is that??
happy birthday, pop.
i honor your memory with my happiness today.
and that feels so good....
