Message to self for the new year:
Have a glass of wine. Or better yet... a margarita.
Smoke a J.
Watch a silly movie.
Wear your pj all day and with no shame.
Eat junk food. Once. Or twice.
Eat ice cream. Often.
Skip your workout. Just because.
Watch a reality show. For no reason.
STOP TAKING THINGS SO SERIOUSLY.
Play with your partner. Or your partners.
In the bedroom. Or with a board game.
Whatever floats your boat.
Dig up that ole' Nintendo Wii and see if it works.
And if does - spend hours on it. Just because you can.
See fireworks. From your bedroom window. Or on TV. Whatever is easier.
Or skip food. For once. Have dessert be your meal.
Toss your bra.
Never wear it again.
Until tomorrow. (maybe)
Eat chocolate. LOTS of chocolate.
Go on TikTok.
And have a happy fucking new year.
