you ever have those days where you just feel super overwhelmed? on the verge of a breakdown? i’ve been there. a lot. last week, in fact. so the funny thing is, one of those days i was feeling crazy but accomplishing a great deal and making people happy. so it just clicked. i told myself that i was f*@$ing awesome! that’s right. sometimes you just gotta tell yourself that. and it feels good to do so. but if you need a reminder…

don’t you forget it!
