weekend revelation

I had a revelation last night as I cooked pasta in someone else's beautiful kitchen while their 8 month old slept and I sacrificed yet another Sat night in the name of a few more 20's in my pocket. I was washing the strainer and as I lifted the red and white striped towel to dry it a voice in my head said,

Be kind to yourself.

And I thought, I would never be as mean to someone as I so often am to myself.

So as this weekend draws to a close; a weekend that didn't go as planned, that left me feeling inadequate, I will carry this new mantra forward.

And I encourage all the Type-A's, perfectionists, own-worst-critics...hell, women in general to do the same.

That is the best advice you can offer yourself. Stick to it! I'll keep it in mind, too.

Hey, have you tried internet dating? I don't know if that's what you're doing or not, but it's worth a shot, right?

I used to babysit all the time for extra money...

And love the advice. Sometimes hard to remember :)
