So…J.J. Abrams…Let me get this straight…We can see a half naked woman…but you take away our Benedict Cumberbatch shower scene…How it the world is that fair…
If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never get it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.
just have to add this
Choose your words wisely
I have a sort of friend, I say sort of because they are someone I am trying to weed them out of my life, for good reason. They are a very unhealthy person. When I say unhealthy, I don’t mean nutritionally. I mean overall, their being, their actions, their words. This person is one of the most outwardly physically “beautiful” “perfect” body person I know.
They are also poison.
They know I’m training for my first half marathon, and from day one their comments were never encouraging. Now, I know all y’alls mamas taught you that if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it. This person says things like, “I just don’t know if you can do it.”, “Running is so bad for your body, it puts too much pressure on it.”, “I wish I could fix you.”, and my ultimate favorite, “13 miles is a lot for a person like you.” . A PERSON LIKE ME? SURELY they must mean a single 32 year old who likes sci-fi, has two cats, and also a glowing personality.
I’m proud of what I’m doing, and I’m not ashamed to say that. Sure people probably could care less, or may even have their own doubts as to if I can do it. I want people to be proud of me, don’t get me wrong. I want friends to hashtag #TEAMKATIA, and say, “FUCK YEAH, my friend ran a half marathon.” I want people in general to be proud to be my friend, and to have my companionship. Too often do we not pay thanks for friendships.
The people who say they want to “fix” me, who second guess if I can accomplish something that I am so diligently training and working towards, those people should watch for bad karma. I’ve got one thing to say to those people, YOU WATCH ME RUN.
