today i decided to write a credo. so, without further adieu i give you..
my little and very serious credo!
. i believe that every woman fully deserves: a really amazing (and expensive) concealer, a killer pair of perfectly fitted jeans, a signature scent, a diet coke at 3pm (if she wants one) and a date night.
. i believe that black goes with brown. that leather goes with lace. I believe you should wear what makes you happy and i believe you can totally pull that off.
. i believe in rearranging furniture as a form of therapy.
. i believe that nothing is more beautiful than confidence. i believe in the power of being kind to yourself. i do not believe in hateful self-talk and the body bashing so many woman do. i am not perfect, but you won't hear it from me. i love my body and i believe in accentuating the good.
. i believe that you can be a wonderful mother and still want alone time.
. i believe that an episode of grey's anatomy can get you through even the worst kind of sadness. i do, i do!
. i believe that phones, ipods and ipads do not belong in or anywhere near bathrooms. say it with me now! the bathroom is a NO PHONE ZONE!
. i believe that i will never stop being the person who is always late and always clumsy and always dropping her electronic devices in the bathtub. i believe that's okay.
. i believe in apples with peanut butter. and greek yogurt with honey. and vanilla ice cream with strawberry jam.
. i believe in saying i'm sorry. in getting over yourself. in realizing when you are wrong.
. i believe in one little spoonful of ice cream any time you feel the need. i do not believe in depriving yourself, but i do believe in portion control. hence, just one spoonful never hurt anyone. i do not believe in "all or nothing". (i once read that victoria beckham hasn't had a cookie in something like 10 years and really, how sad for her. a cookie once a year (or once a month even) really won't ruin your life, posh.)
. i believe that really horribly scary movie previews should be banned on most tv channels. i believe that they scare the hell out of me when i am home alone watching the bachelor at 9pm. i believe i never asked for that!
. i believe in being nice to your waitress even if the food is bad and i believe that i never could have married someone who isn't.
. i believe in being silly. i believe in playing. i believe in living room dance parties.
. i believe that j bubba will never stop eating his poop no matter how many times i google ways to stop him.
. i believe that it's perfectly fine to turn on an episode of mickey mouse clubhouse in the mornings and kind of half-sleep while half-watching evie.
. i believe that nothing good happens before 8am. nothing!
. i believe that things work out. i believe that sadness comes and goes. i believe that trials are necessary even though they suck.
. i believe in singing loudly in the car. i believe in driving with the windows down. i believe in a big gulp from 7-11 to accompany you.
. i believe that kids should be allowed to stay up until midnight on new years eve. and i believe they should be able to have a sleepover and make a really messy art project in the kitchen. i believe some parents need to chhhhhillll out.
. i believe in hugs. oh my gosh, i believe in hugs. i believe that i will never stop needing a hug from my mother and i believe that boys should learn to say "i love you".
. i believe in a really healthy breakfast and a good session of yoga.
. i believe in oprah! so much, do i believe in oprah!!
. i believe in sunshine. i believe that if you are feeling down you probably really need to just open your windows and let some sunshine into your home. and if that doesn't work, i believe you need to count your blessings and/or take a shower.
. i believe that husbands deserved to be kissed goodbye in the morning, but i do not believe in getting out of bed to do so.
. i believe you should sleep in if you want to! and if you can! and really, though, why not?
. i believe in laughing gas and an ipod at the dentist.
. i believe in taking pictures.
. i believe that telling my daughter i think she is beautiful will not make her any less intelligent (really, people?). i believe she needs to hear that from me. i believe it is my responsibility to brag about her, and adore her and teach her to love herself.
. i believe in actually swimming in the pool and getting your hair nice and wet and never just sitting on the side.
. i believe in doing things that scare you.
. i believe that life goes on.
what about you? what do you believe?
