What would Lincoln do?

20120813-160039.jpg

I don’t care what anyone says Lincoln was a babe; one of my favorite presidents.

My favorite thing about Lincoln is that he always kept his cool. When betrayed or antagonized he wouldn’t reprimand or hand out verbal lashings. Instead, he wrote “strongly worded” letters, to those who had wronged him. However, he never sent them.

He realized that these letters would only be met with resentment. The recipient would not feel sorry, instead he/she (but lets be real, he) would justify his own actions and condemn those of the president.

In my youthful haste to persuade people, I have severed one + relationships with unkind words. Next time, I feel like I’ve been “ass – fucked in the heart,” I’ll ask myself, what would Lincoln do….

So write a letter. Blow off steam, because resentment makes you look fat. But for the love of whomever DON’T SEND IT!

Next time you’re overcome by rage just ask yourself what would Lincoln do. Carry a five dollar bill folded like the one in the picture in your wallet. 

If you didn’t know how old you were….How old would you think you were?

aksfjaskljfa! Does this make sense?

Sometimes when I see “Age: 24” I’m SHOCKED! :$   I realize I’m not actually old, though my knee does pop out from time to time, but when did 24 happen?

I believe that how old you look has little to do with the way you physically look but more with your overall demeanor. Sure, you can meet someone and say 43, but when they share themselves with you, you think wow 25 and you can no longer see what made you think 43 (besides that bald spot) …. jokes :/  . Karma, please don’t give me a bald spot for having written that….

That being said, i would rather act 5 than 15, and I would rather be 24 than 15 because though I still constantly have verbal diarrhea…. oh fuck how’d that dumb shit come out of my mouth? …. I am more comfortable with myself and I am more in control of my decisions. The key to looking 20 at 27 (besides eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables!!!! SERIOUSLY, eat the fucking broccoli it’s the best thing for you) is to feel like you are five. Did you care what anyone thought about you when you were five. Nope! You probably danced anywhere you wanted and ran naked through fountains. Give yourself equal freedom now. Now that you can choose to eat ice cream for breakfast (but remember we’re trying to live to 140 so have oatmeal instead) choose to act the way you want to, not the way you perceive other people want you to. Because they probably don’t give a rat’s ass or even worse a rat’s tail…ew!

I originally started to write this because I really like this Rookiemag.com, it’s a magazine for teenagers and has a lot of great advice that I can still relate to. One of my favorite articles is about how some of the funniest ladies on the telly lost their virginity. I admire and appreciate their youthful honesty. Check it out here.

Crunch, crunch…avoid the Ranch.

UCLA did a study where college boys were asked to rate their preference of women’s body types. These boys were hungry… for food. Upon completing the task, they were given a sandwich. Then they were given more bodies to rate. It turns out, hungry males prefer fuller looking women; whereas, satiated hunger led these same men to choose more slender women. Moral of the story: NEVER FEED A MAN!!!

Jokes… but I do believe that most women struggle with weight, even really anno looking ones.

Anywho, I do believe that eating healthy and smart is important. I don’t normally like to share when I’m dieting mostly because I don’t think anyone cares. But I have found a great site for healthy eating!

The author has some great recipes. Her website is available here. Also, this is how we should eat ALL of the time, splurging once in a while.

The Incas believed that gold was a product of the sun’s sweat and that silver was a product of the moon’s tears.

You have to move it, move it!

I love running, I even have a water bottle which I take with me just about everywhere that announces this very love of mine. However, my love has taken a toll on my knees….whaaaaaamp whaaaaaaaaamp….. I hate swimming I feel like I’m suffocating, but in my quest to be one of those happy, positive, optimists one that makes gin and tonics when given lemons, I am finding new types of interesting exercises.

While perusing Goop.com, Gwenyth Platrow’s blog, I came across the wonderful and talented Tracy Anderson, trainer to the stars. I’ve been doing her workouts even though they’re indoor workouts I enjoy them and recommend that you try them.

I particularly enjoy this arms video but you can find many more of her videos on the interwebs, particularly youtube.
