Gone With The Wind

Today I felt like I couldn’t win.
I never even made it out of my sweats
My hair is worse than a brumby mare’s
And I took a three-hour nap directly after breakfast.

I feel sick, tired and my To-do list has exactly
ONE item checked off it and
It’s grimacing and mocking me from its place on my desk.

I’ve written TWO blogs for you Dolls today and neither feels right.
So I thought I’d take my experience and use it to remind us that that there are days like this.

There are days where nothing will go right or the way we think it should.

Babies will be screaming,
Colts will have forgotten everything they knew previously,
The Boss man will be impossible to please,
Your husband or boyfriend might act like an asshole and to top it all off,
The dog will be sure to barf in the house.

But what sets us apart from everyone else is that we will not give up.
We will grit our teeth, bare down and ask ourselves,
“What am I supposed to be learning from this experience?”

And we will get up tomorrow,
Wiser from today and ready for whatever the world has to throw at us.

We, you courageous and undefeated Buckaroo Barbies,
Cannot be shut down or discouraged by
Our bodies,
Other’s actions
Or Bad days in general.

We are strong
We are fighters
And like Scarlett O’Hara said.
“After all, tomorrow is another day!”
