Yup, that’s me! How y’all doin’ tonight?
All right, so let’s address my “Welcome Back To Dallas/Attack Party” and the pink polka-dotted elephant in the room. Yes, that was…awkward with a capitol “A” and a drawn out “d”! The only thing I actually learned that night is that being attacked by a Southern belle is like being shot in the face with a can of hair spray (Aqua Net to be specific). LOL! At first you’re in shock, and then it leaves a bitter taste in your mouth. So wow. I sure didn’t expect that. The funny thing is that I was actually excited to meet everyone that evening -- especially the girls! Yet instead of being welcomed, I became a walking target encountering completely negative, closed off, judgmental strangers. What do you know? So I ended up disappointed, and it wasn’t that fun. At all. Especially when you’re the new girl.
Anyway, reflecting on that night, do I think it was completely ridiculous? Yes. Did clueless strangers make arrogant and catty comments towards me? Yes. Do I think I deserved it? No. What did I do wrong? Pretty sure nothing! I’ve made a choice in my life to be positive for myself and towards others. I will not let petty situations or people bring me down. Plus I’m a new mother, and I’ve got to tell you, I’m a great one. I’ve never worked so hard in my life to balance this new chapter. After being out on my own since I was eighteen, after all the experiences I’ve had and struggles I’ve been through to get where I am today, I’ve found happiness within myself. And I’m proud to admit I’m actually a healthy, loving, caring, driven, and passionate young woman.
