Feeling the Holiday Blues...

Don't get me wrong. I love the Holidays. One is never too old for Santa!
I have often been told that you can tell what mood I am in just by reading the posts that I publish. It's Sunday. It's been a long week. Do excuse me. But you know what they say, better to be real than a piece of plastic! (Thats not really what they say, I totally invented that, but hey, it's true!)

No one ever likes to show a strand of weakness, being emotional, feeling down, feeling under the weather seems to always be frowned upon. Boys when they are young are told not to cry, that it makes them look like wimps, as with girls, we keep on being told “Big Girls Don’t Cry”. We have been taught to hide our emotions, to show only the good stuff, to fake it if we must. Just take a look at your Facebook newsfeed. It always seems to be positive, except for the occasional “Attention Seeker” who would write something like “What a shit day today”, who we all seem to judge as the said “Attention Seeker”. When we are feeling low, we hide it. We say all is good. We pretend. We can all be great actors, some better than others, some more trained than others.

Why do women want what they can't have?

Hey, if I was going to use an Adam & Eve picture, mind as well use a cool one!
The age old question  that continues to bother me. Why do women want what they can't have? And when I say age old, I truly mean it. Look at Adam & Eve. I am sure most of you remember the story of Adam and Eve. God said, yo don't eat that fruit, it's bad for you. Then the snake was like, go eat it, it will make you smart like God. Both Adam and Eve couldn't resist the beauty of that delicious apple on the tree and BOOM! 

They ate the forbidden fruit.
