Well, why not a gold star for today. Just for being me. All of me. The suffering-working-on-releasing-the-victim me to the highly-creative-what-can-I-do-with-all-this-energy me! It’s all me and it’s all ok. It’s ok to be angry, it’s ok to feel grouchy, it’s ok to be distant and it’s ok to want to gather everyone I know in one room and feed them yummy food because I adore them so much. Whew.

I don’t want to slap the label of “complex” or “moody” or “hormonal” on the whole of me because that is a lazy way of dealing with all the different ever changing aspects of me.

And…every one of these aspects gets a gold star. I would like to acknowledge that all of me is ok.
