My Beauty Is Fleeting, My Worth Everlasting

I rarely look in the mirror and think… “I am beautiful.”

I look in the mirror and think “I have something on my face.” “I neeeeed to lost 15 pounds immediately.” “Maybe I should just wear a bag today, nothing else seems to be working.” But beautiful? It’s a rare occasion when I think that of myself.

And yet friends, family, strange men on the street are constantly throwing this positive affirmation my way. And I keep wondering, if they are in fact talking to me.

What a sad culture we live in. What a sad culture to grow up in. A culture that constantly bombards you with images that shake your self worth. Skinny is not only the new pretty, it’s the only pretty. Blonde is better than brown. Never leave the house without lipstick on. Being better goes hand in hand with being prettier.

I am 32. I am single and I let my mind wander to the dark place. The place that tells me that I am single because I am not pretty enough to be married. Not desirable enough to be wanted. Not worthy enough of love.

What a load of… well, you know!

My God has created someone far better than I allow myself to be. He has created a woman worthy of thinking herself beautiful. A woman worthy of praise and devotion. A woman worthy of love.

Women, we are made for more! (Men, you are too, but I’m focused on my ladies right now!) Do you feel that sometimes? Does that ever enter your mind? It’s constantly on mine. I have to tell you what you already know. Your beauty has nothing to do with your worth!!!

Beauty will fade. It will shrivel. It will disappear. And it is meaningless. Truly and utterly meaningless.

That being said I guarantee that tomorrow morning I will probably still get up, do my hair, put on my makeup, look in the mirror and wonder. But tomorrow morning I will know that it doesn’t matter quite so much. That God has more for me in this world than what shade of lipstick I wear or what size jeans I buy. And tomorrow morning that will be enough for me! Make it enough for yourself!

The Friend Zone

It’s a classic tale.

Girl meets boy. Girl really likes boy. Boy really likes girl…as a friend.

1429586176934

I can’t tell you how many times this has happened to me. And I’m sure it’s common for men as well. So I know I’m not alone in this. Chemistry isn’t always a two way street. Sometimes one person will feel something that the other person just doesn’t get. That’s ok. That’s normal. That freakin’ sucks!

Listen, the fact of the matter is that there are over 6 billion people on this planet. So the chances of feeling something for the wrong person is likely to happen and happen more than once. It doesn’t mean you aren’t worth it. It doesn’t mean you won’t find it. It just means you have to keep looking and not let it get you down.

I don’t know if you’ve ever felt this way. I don’t know most of you at all. But I know that the things we feel are not unique to us. The hurts and heart breaks are universal. And if you’ve felt it, you better believe someone else has too.

Check out this week’s episode, because I’ve definitely been there before!

I hope you can find comfort in knowing that you aren’t alone!! I’m right there with you! Tweet me, email me, message me! I’m here!

Are You Watching Yet?

With only 8 new episodes left in my web series, now is the perfect time to binge-watch all the episodes available and stay up to date for the final ones.

Take a look at last week’s episode:

 

Or start back at the beginning:

And don’t forget to check in tomorrow, because the plot thickens!!!

The Power of Hello

So… one night, I was out with some girlfriends for a rather epic night of karaoke. Enter a pack of attractive business men. Now, I’m not really a suit and tie kinda girl, but a cute guy is a cute guy.

When they walked in the door, I was rocking out to Saving Jane’s “Girl Next Door.” Apparently, well enough to peak the pack’s interest. Cause next thing I knew, one of the guys was on the stage dedicating Usher’s ‘Nice and Slow’ to me, personally.

A couple thoughts on this, it was a bold move and sometimes that really works. For this dude, it totally did. Very sexy! ‘Nice and Slow’ is a little fresh, but it’s karaoke and things said via song lyrics are way less jarring than when merely spoken.

For example: if a man ever said “I wish that I – Could pull over – And get this thing started right now – I wanna do something freaky to you baby” to my face… I’d probably slap him. But sung in a sexy Usher song, somehow it worked. Somehow.

Here’s where he went wrong. After he finished serenading me and even stealing a kiss on the cheek, he walked off the stage and went back to sit with his friends. Then he didn’t even approach me the rest of the night. Just stared at me from across the room. If you have the balls to get on stage and dedicate a song to me, you better have the balls to walk 6 feet across the room to say hello. But no. He didn’t.

Now, I’ve heard a lot of pick-up lines in my life, as you faithful readers already know. (read: That is Not a Pick-Up Line blog post)

But the one that actually works on me is “Hello.” It may sound simple or cheesy or old school, but I’m telling you… it really works! And if it’s the right hello, at the right moment, from the right person then “Hello” becomes a whole lot more than a simple, cheesy, old-school greeting.

The beauty of language is the subtlety of things not spoken. The phrase “less is more” comes to mind.

This week’s webisode is the perfect example of what to do. Perhaps only the unicorns know the secret power of Hello, but I want to share this with the world. Education is the key to knowledge. So watch and learn from one of the few unicorns I have encountered in my journeys. Cause this boy knew how to make a Hello work for him!

That is Not a Pick-up Line!

If you’ve seen this week’s episode of my web series, then you’ll have heard the latest in a succession of terrible pick-up lines meant to pick me up. Needless to say, they did not work. If you haven’t seen it yet, take a look:

Here’s a list of things that are not appropriate to use as a pick-up line! (And incidentally, all things that I have heard uttered in my direction. What is my life??)

**Caution: not for grandmas, children or the faint of heart.**

-“Hi, I’m married. Wanna get a drink cause actually… I’m not really married.”
image

-“The things I would do to your vagina.”
image

-“Hi, we don’t know your name, but we’ll F*** your brains out just the same.”
image

-“You look like the kind of tall, voluptuous girl that I’ve always wanted to do it with.”
image

-“See, tomorrow you should be waking up on top of me with the windows open.”

-“Hey princess, I just wanna get to know ya.”

-“Hope you like strangling kittens as much as I do!”

-“I’ll just come over to your place and take all my clothes off “

image

 

 

Here’s a list of alternatives that one might try instead of the aforementioned list of disgustingness!

-“Hi!”

-“What’s your name?”

-“My name is ______”

That’s it! That’s all you need. Something polite. Something that let’s me know you are in fact a human being and not a Gremlin in human’s clothing. Seriously guys… try it sometime. I promise these options will get you much farther than anything that I’ve ever heard!

Got any pick-up lines that have worked? Or heard any that worked for you? Let me know!
