    I do and don’t care what people think. I want to keep a certain profile because I always keep the big picture in mind – i.e. work related, author profile. Other than that, I tend to agree with Tameri for the most part. It still hurts when people cut you down or think poorly of you, no matter how much you try to deny it. I think it’s human nature. Life is too short to dwell on those things, though. So I don’t sweat it too much.

    I’m glad you are feeling good about the decision you made. I hope things continue on a true and steady course and nothing is done to derail it. Fingers crossed.

    Hey, I read my newsletter, can I get in to secret group? 😉 You’re such a teenager. LOL.

      Yeah, I work pretty hard to behave myself online, too. Not that I’m a bad person or anything, but I try to use my company manners. And you’re right…life is WAY too short. LOL…I’m keeping my fingers crossed, too. And I sent you an invitation to the secret group. 🙂

    I think the older we get, the less we care what others think. At least that’s true for me. I’m kind, but I drop the F-bomb like a sailor. I believe in God (whether a male or female, not sure yet), but I don’t believe in organize religion, I love sparkly things and wear glitter eyeliner even though I’m far too old to get away with it. I don’t care, it makes me happy! That’s kind of where I am right now. If it makes me happy and doesn’t hurt anyone, then I say go for it. As long as your inner monster is a kind beastie, let her out for walks. If she wants to rip out people’s throats and eat their hearts for breakfast, well maybe you need to work on that a bit. Train her to eat some raw steak, maybe :).

    I bet she’s beautiful, just like the person you show the world right now. She has to be because she’s you. Right?

      I know in a lot of ways I don’t care what anyone thinks of me anymore. I’ve gotten so far beyond the clique-y junior high stuff, but I still try to keep the monster hidden. She’s the one who wants to smack rude people with her shopping cart, and yell out the window, IT’S A STOP SIGN, NOT A PARKING SPOT! And who woke up on the wrong side of the bed today because she didn’t get enough sleep-and was ornery most of the day. She’s also the one who gets scared, depressed sometimes, and sad. And she’s the one I don’t let out often (except at stop signs 😉 ).

      Like you I have some of the language going on, though I try to control it. I also believe in God but can’t get into the eye liner, sparkly or not, lol. Of course I hate all makeup. I could get into a tiara though, when Prince Charming gets his butt in gear and knocks on the door. I’d say ‘rides up on a horse,’ but the last time I tried to get on one, I fell off the other side.

      Anyway, thanks. I was thinking about the ‘real’ me when I was advising someone else about being more real…and realized I’m the last one to be giving that advice. 🙂
