It’s Okay If You Suck At This. Otherwise Called, “Permission to Suck.” Otherwise Called, “Longest Blog Post Title Ever Because Obnoxiously Long Blog Post Titles Are Funny.”

It's okay if…you're drowning in self-doubt.

It's okay if…you don't know where to start.

It's okay if…you started, but want to stop.

It's okay if…you sometimes mix up your priorities.

It's okay if…you didn't say the right thing.

It's okay if…you really fucked up the first time around.

It's okay if…you fucked up the second time around, too.

It's okay if…you're overwhelmed.

It's okay if…you get down on yourself.

It's okay if…you're worried everyone knows more than you.

It's okay if…you don't have enough self-confidence.

It's okay if…you're secretly afraid that people will laugh at you.

It's okay if…you question your own capabilities.

It's okay if…you spent all weekend doing nothing but watching movies.

It's okay if…you sometimes suck.

It's okay if…you sometimes really suck.

It's okay if…you haven't reached your potential yet.

It's okay if…you're not sure that you ever really will.

It's okay if…you sort of resent the people doing better than you.

It's okay if…you sometimes think they're full of it, too.

It's okay if…you didn't respond to that person's email.

It's okay if…you just don't fucking feel like it today.

It's okay if…you have no idea what to do next.

It's okay if…you do know what to do next…but still can't seem to make yourself.

It's okay if…you just couldn't find the time this week.

It's okay if…you don't want to do it the way they say you should.

None of it matters.

Because…

YOU ARE TRYING.

And as a matter of fact, you're doing a wonderful job.

Just thought you should know.

Paper In Your Coffee

There are some people who don’t get the whole concept of an assembly line. You know who I’m talking about – those hanyacks at the Starbucks who come up beside you at the milk station, their panties in a bunch, tapping their foot, doing the hokey pokey at 8 o’clock in the morning because they […]

Lust, Turkey Gizzards + A Ladylike Toast

I blame my bleak and very unpromising cooking skills on Thanksgiving, you know. You’d think I would have gotten better from helping my mom prepare such a yearly feast for me, her and my dad. (Mashed potatoes were my sworn duty. Probably because they’re mashed, requiring heavy amounts of manual mashing child labor. Not to […]

Why Rule Breakers Run the World

I’ll admit it–I’m a tad embarrassed. I can’t decide if I’m embarrassed in light of the nonchalant display of nudity that is currently lounging alongside of me–quite proudly, and with reason, if I do say so myself–on this clothing optional beach, or if I’m embarrassed for another reason–perhaps at my own relative prudishness, something that […]

Stay Foolish. Stay Wise. Have CONFIDENCE.

Rules–particularly the dogmatic variety–are most useful for those who aren’t confident enough to make their own damn decisions.   For the rest of us, there’s vodka–so we can cope with the decisions we were foolishly wise enough to make.   So help us, Grey Goose.   Amen. -Excerpt from my forthcoming book, The Middle Finger […]
