It is the start of the new year. Naturally, every social media site is talking about “new year, new me.” Personally, I think it is bull shit! After getting out of a relationship for 3 years and seeing the ups, downs, left and rights of how much a relationship can change who you are, what you love, and the light inside of you, I decided to make this year in dedication to me. Yes, it may be 10 days into the year, but it does not matter what time you do it. It could be September, June, or New Year’s Eve. When you decide you are ready for the New Year, then you make the New Year about you!
I have been wanting to create a spot for me just to say it like it is for a few years now. I love to write almost as much as I love to talk (for my friends and family…I know you are probably laughing at that statement). Communication is huge to me! I am a huge believer in speaking what is wrong and to just vent. This is why I made this. Cats, Cupcakes, and Cock-tails. All things I go to when I am upset. Why the hyphen you may ask? Well (sorry mom and dad), it is exactly what it stands for. Men. There are 4 vices that I go to when I am upset. None of them are illegal, so that is a plus and all of them make me happy! Actually, scratch that. It adds to my happiness since I do not need anything to make me happy, just the love that I have from my family and friends.
- My cat, Koda-the little bundle of joy I was able to receive right after my dog passed away. He was able to bring me up when I was upset and depressed. Grief is a terrible thing and no one should have to face it alone.
- Cupcakes! I am such a sweet person. I love a good cupcake! Whenever I am upset, I always want to go for a cupcake and wish I had some with me. Fat and happy as one of my littles called it from college.
- Drinks-Oh there is nothing better than laughing with friends over a drink. Sometimes that is all I need. Just a good margarita or martini (or tequila shot) is just the perfect ending of a bad or good day.
- Men-I used to always go to my at-the-time boyfriend when I was upset. I would go to him to make me happy. Whether it be just spending time together, or cuddling to watch a movie, he would make me smile and my bad day would go away. Now that I am taking time for self love, a date or two wouldn’t be that bad either 🙂 Who knows, maybe I will find my prince charming (huge Disney fan….won’t apologize for that one).
Every blog post you will see will have a specific name. This name will show what I am going through (you will see future posts that can describe it more). I want you to know you are not alone. Please reach out to me if you need someone to talk to. YOU. ARE. NOT. ALONE! Sometimes just talking with someone will help. (@theres_nothing_wrong_with_you is an amazing Insta page to check out and love…ran by a close friend of mine).
Whether you are licking it, sucking it down or petting it…enjoy it! Everyone deserves a little indulgence. No pasa nada 🙂
