BiG GiRl PaNtiEs

Sometimes life is messy.
It knocks you down,
breaks your heart and
kicks you around for good measure.
This is when you just gotta
get your big girl panties on and deal with it.

~J.V Manning
I can hear my sweet sister whispering in my ear...
"Put on your big girl panties and get over it, Denise!"
(She has to tell her employees this quite often.)
So why would she feel I needed to hear this?
Well, let me tell you...
I was feeling sorry for myself. 
Does anyone really read my blog?
Very few leave a comment.
Does anyone even care about what I have to say?
I've tried give-aways.
Maybe no one wants a free gift?
So I decided to write this "Woe is Me" Blog.
I got on the internet in search of "Big Girl Panties" clip art.
Wow!  There is a whole world out there...
There are posters...

Posters that offer all kinds of advice.

There are cross-stitch patterns...

...and t-shirts...

...even a book...

...and business cards!
I know, My Dear, life can be cruel
and sometimes seems unfair
But it's the times that seem so bleak
we need most to persevere.

So when the 'grey funk' comes around
and life feels like a pit
Put on your "Big Girl Panties"
.....and learn to deal with it.

It's good to trust in others
just know one thing is true
The one you really count on

Should always be......YOU.
So when someone let's you down
Don't get in a snit
Put on your "Big Girl Panties"
.....and learn to deal with it.

If you're big girl panties sometimes bunch
and slows you down a bit
Then that's the time to re-adjust
Until you make 'em fit
Reality is sometimes harsh
But the answer's not to quit
Put on your "Big Girl Panties"
.....and learn to deal with it.

We always have two choices
To do...or
not to do
It's up to you to see yourself
As someone who'll make it through.
Life can't bring more than you'll handle
If you never do forget
To put on your "Big Girl Panties"
.....and learn to deal with it.

So I'm ready now...
I put my big girl panties on
and I got over it!...

...and reminded myself -
I write my blog to express myself,
to share my life, my art, and my heart.
Comments are nice, but not necessary.  :)
blessings, Big Girls!  :D
