It’s perfectly ok…

… to shove it in your closet and consider your place cleaned
… to take every single personal day, holiday and sick day that you are entitled to
… to discover all your new music courtesy of “The Hills”
… to secretly hope that your exes consider you the one that got away
… to find the word “panties” totally creepy
… to consider riding a swing a form of cardio
… to correct people who mispronounce your name
… to push your sunglasses up on your head and consider it a hairstyle
… to act all “candid” when someone pulls out a camera
… to think the fireworks were a wee bit excessive. How many small countries could that feed?
… to ask for chicken on your vegie burger
… to not change out of your pyjamas

… and its ok to be ok with the things that are ok. Life is what it is and its too short to not be the real you.

Aside

“Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them.”
