I’m Dropping a Major F-Bomb

Hot damn. My name is Mary, and it’s been almost a flipping year since the last time I published a post on this blog. I’m not making excuses for not writing, because I don’t need them. And I’m not apologizing for it either, as all of our lives go through a series of peaks and valleys … and sometimes in the valleys, well … we just don’t feel like fucking blogging.

And that’s what’s pretty much been the case with me. Between getting used to working full-time all over again (which I’ve been doing now for nearly 3 years), all of life’s regular ups and downs, and then … well, a serious change that is taking me completely out of my comfort zone and setting me off on a completely different course in life than I ever expected (more on that someday) — I just didn’t feel like fucking blogging.

But then earlier today after being in one of those very, very low valleys, all of a sudden I got the urge again. So here I am … fucking blogging. (OMG. It feels weird, yet strangely familiar, you guys.)

On that note, in the hopes of getting back into the habit of blogging again (mainly for therapeutic purposes), I’ll end this post with the three things that are keeping me going and seeing a light at the end of the tunnel these days (again, sorry for the cryptic shit), which all happen to start with the letter “F.”

Family — Without them I’d be an even bigger hot mess than I already am. They are my everything. The end.

Friends — Recently I learned who my true “people” are versus the ones who only like to come around when it’s all sunshine and fucking unicorns. The ones who have stuck by me honestly probably belong in the “Family” category.

Following my gut – My instincts have NEVER steered me wrong, and I know they won’t this time either. Shit’s about to get real, but something tells me life is also about to get sweeter than ever. Call it a gut feeling.

(If you actually took the time to read this post considering how long I’ve been absent from the blogosphere, thank you. I’m not sure in what capacity I’ll be coming back, but I’m sure as hell gonna try.)

 

Giving Back Shouldn’t End After the Holiday Season

Ok, so I might be a day (or two) late and a dollar (or quite a few) short to the party, but I certainly can’t help but mention #GivingTuesday, which was celebrated this week for the second year in a row! In case you aren’t familiar with it — it’s exactly what it sounds like. [...]

I’m Having a Mid-Life Crisis

Screen Shot 2013-11-06 at 5.29.21 PM

Yes, Yes I am. I’m 36 years old — and in some ways, I feel like a few things are kinda over for me at this point. Like fitting into the size 0 dress I wore for my rehearsal dinner. (Skinny bitch.) Or traveling the world for free all because of my kick ass career. [...]

My First Mammogram Was Not What I Expected (VIDEO)

I have a confession to make. When it comes to breast cancer, I’ve always been one of those people who assumes it’s not something I need to be too worried about, a.) because I’m only 36 and it’s not a major concern until I reach my 40s, and b.) because I don’t have a history [...]

8 Signs You’re a Total Cougar

A little less than a month ago, the unthinkable happened. I fucking turned 36 — and now I’m well on my way out of my mid-30s and I’m entering my late 30s — and for whatever reason, I feel like I’ve crossed some sort of threshold into full-blown old lady territory. And yes, I know [...]

Are You Wearing Sexy Underwear?

Yes — you read that right. I want to talk about your unmentionables today. Because let’s face it — there’s no way in hell you’re going to look and feel Mom Sexy on the outside if you’re sporting a pair of white cotton granny panties and a basic nude bra underneath your clothes. (That just [...]

Even though I don’t have time to watch it anymore (because the whole full-time job thing kinda gets in the way) — I’ve been a huge Days of our Lives fan since I was a teenager, and I’ve always had a soft spot for Sami Brady. And that’s why I couldn’t possibly say no when [...]
