“If you retain nothing else, always remember the most important Rule of Beauty: “Who cares?””Tina Fey
I was in Nashville taking a line dancing lesson when I heard people say:
“I can’t do that. I need a few drinks.”
Do you? Really? Why?
You probably have the human tendency to worry about people watching you, looking at you, assessing your beauty or coordination or whether you’re “good” at dancing.
I worry about what people think sometimes. And come on, we all worry about what other people think sometimes. It really begs the question:
I ask myself this often: Who cares?
You don’t want to wear a bathing suit in public? Why? Who cares?
You don’t want to be wrong? Why? Who cares?
You don’t want to say no to that person? Why? Who cares?
Who are you worried about? Who has that power over you? Who gets to decide what is beautiful, “good,” “bad,” or successful?
Sure, there are people out there who have created material measures of all of these things. Sizes made by designers. Beauty decided by mass media. Experts in every field to compare yourself with.
But have you answered my question yet? Have you really asked yourself?
Beautiful, sometimes worried, humanly concerned reader:The answer to that question is who is controlling your life. The answer to that question has a lot of power. The answer to that question is helping you or hindering you. The answer to that question is EVERYTHING.
I hope your answer is this and only this: I care.
Loving you out there. You care about you for a while. Leave everyone else out of it. How does that feel? Like freedom? Good. XO
