Yes, I AM AWESOME!
I have only just recently reached that conclusion, having grown up.
It’s taken a while. There’s been many bumps and lumps along the way.
Being a doormat (aka ‘nice’) suited me not at all. Having others wipe their muddy boots all over me was just too tiresome.
Life’s busy-ness got in the way too. I mean to say, who has the time to invest energy into being
awesome when there’s shitty nappies to change, vomit to clean up, work to go to. Not to mention
university studies fitted into the ‘spare time’ in there somewhere. Oh – and the cleaning, washing, ironing, shopping, cooking, date nights, sleep (what’s that?) …..
Oh my God! How on earth did I manage all that ?! It’s no wonder there was no time left over for being awesome.
Now that I’ve grown up, I have found out that there are such things as
Me? I don’t need to belong to a Society. Having grown up to be awesome all by myself
I wear my wrinkles, lumps and bumps with grace and comfort.
Alas, I have had to forego the stilettos – but no granny shoes for me!
Along the way, I have learnt too, the importance of being kind to myself and others.
I urge you to grow up and be awesome too – you’ll love it !
