Lately, I have felt like I am stuck in a rut. Unhappy at home. Unhappy at work. I hate my body. I feel poor. Hate being on meds. Hate being off of them. So, for me, re-branding is less about creating a clothing line or some product to sell, and more about re-packaging my life to present back to myself as a gift. I don't have a bad life. I have a caring boyfriend, a home to live in, a car to drive, a job with a decent salary. I have amazing friends and family. I have a healthy (although somewhat beat-up) body which allows me to go to the gym and have fun at Twirly Girls.
For Heather, re-branding may mean something completely different. I know she has been unemployed for some time and may be looking to get a job, or into a new field, or maybe even go back to school to change up her life completely. Her outlook on life isn't bleak...she has the entire world in front of her and she can do WHATEVER she wants. How amazing is that feeling?
Yesterday, I spent a few hours at Twirly Girls. First at Kenzy's lapdance workshop, then with Jimmy, Miguel, Michael and Rita in a taster class. I was prancing around in a pink tu-tu and thigh high boots that have probably an eight inch heel. I pulled off a couple of handstands. A handstand...I mean, how long ago was it that I was just stoked to do a headstand? And now I'm kicking up into a handstand? WITH boots on?
I am trying to be more positive and appreciative of my life on a daily basis. So, that's what my re-branding is about. I know that a lot of my friends are in bad situations with their homes or jobs, so I encourage everyone to join me in a re-branding and commit to reminding yourself every single day of one positive thing.
I e-mail myself every morning with my list of things I am grateful for. And today I am grateful for my friends and the outlet I have through this blog and Facebook. Thank you to everyone who takes time of their day to read my rantings and musings. :-)
