If the world could be its own heroine. I would like to think it…A sunset. There would not be bias. Just spheres, floating upon air balloon pillows. And, every element, separate but the same. Comedy and innocence dressed as colors. Variation’s on a rainbow could be our names. The end would be a beginning. And, the beginning, would have no end.
Someone stumbled and then someone else falls. Isn’t the way of the world?
A friend, supposedly, stumbled upon an article and emailed it to me…I fell for it. Had to read it considering the topic:
7 Traits of Sexy Poeple!
In a perfect world I wouldn’t have given the article any of my thoughts. I don’t live in a perfect world. Neverr had never will. Immediateely the paranoia kicked in. Had I not been sexy before? Had I been sexy in the past and now that I am closer to fifty than forty…has the sexy kitten I held inside gone to look for another place to live?
Worse paranoid thought?
Who the fuck are you, said friend, to point out what sexy is and what it is not? For that matter, get back up on your voluptuous high horse and take your f-gly skinny jeans fitted with an over the top ass out to the nearest pasture.
Eventually, after repeating my old stand by in case of emergency mantra:
Goddess, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change and the wisdom to know the difference. After considerable vain thoughts I knew deep in my egotistical soul of souls the stumbled article had just been a simple a form of self-expression from a wonton world.
1.Moral fortitude- a sexy happy person does not cow down to any sort of standard. Prancing to the beat of their own drum day in and day out.
2. Living contentedly with the genes you have on. Kind of cocky but with the ability to create an understanding of just how cool you really are.
3. Volunteering to better yourself through senseless acts of selflessness and random moments of I gave at the office.
4.Passionate Kisses-the truly happy sexy person knows that life has a deeper meaning than getting from point A to point B.
5. No Blame Game-most highly attractive people eventually mellow to the fact that he or she ade their own bed and are content with living in it.
6.It’s an Honest Program-persons with a shit eating grin on their face keep it real and in the moment. Lying just does not make anyone happy.
7.Self Depraicating sense of self-I think we all know someone who seems to be on a higher spiritual plane. Typically they are okay with the fact they are fallible and find the quality cute and endearing.
Let’s just assume that we all know someone with that certain SOMETHING. An unattainable gift of letting go and letting life be. Bullshit! Sexy is as sexy does.
Just the other day my partner came down to the living room after a hard night of snoring and twisting and repositioning herself on my side of the big bed…she had Hawiian shorts on and a blue plaid flannel shirt. As I sat back with my coffee and thought about the good fortunes I’ve had in life…for just a split second, the outfit did it for me. I saw sexy! I embraced sexy! And, then I watched as sexy made me a perfect cup of coffee.
