Declaring "I am awesome and so are you!" day and another winner WOOT!

Hi Everyone,

As busy mom's (yes, I know there are men reading too but you don't suffer from this as much as women so you have to bear with me here), wives, business women, workers, girl Fridays...what have you, we can sometimes get down on ourselves. We always have guilt that we don't spend enough time with our children, that we messed them up so bad that they will never turn into productive adults, that we can't concentrate at work because yada yada at home it going on... I am declaring it is "You are awesome" day!



This is the day when you give yourselves a break! Your kids aren't going to graduate high school in diapers! They will some how manage to live with their dysfunctional childhood just like we all did. Not only that you have done an awesome job just by getting them to school today with their PB&J sandwich. You get to take a break because you have done everything right this morning (no really, you did). Today everything you have done or will do is just what was supposed to happen and it will all turn out perfectly! Every time you have a thought that something went wrong turn it around and say "That was perfect!"

Not only that... you are not fat today. You don't need to lose weight you are perfect just the way you are! You aren't too skinny either, perfect remember? Don't beat yourself up over that extra piece of chocolate today because it is helping you to maintain your perfection :)

If any of your friends says I need to lose weight tell them how perfect they are. Even better write a tiny little note to at least two friends today to tell them how perfect they are. How much you love them and wouldn't change a thing about them. Be sincere, they will appreciate it :)

Go forth and be awesome... and pass it on!

The third winner of the 400th post giveaway gets this:

  19. Thanks Julie. Sometimes we really need to hear that because let's face it, usually you only hear complaints when something isn't right at home. You don't usually get too much praise. At least I don't. Sometimes it's nice to know we're OK.
