Forever Lazy-an adult-sized onesie that appears to be exactly like the Snuggie but with a funnier name-claims to solve all of your chilly temperature woes by covering your entire body in pink fleece. It also has the audacity to suggest wearing your Forever Lazy out in public, assuring that you’ll be the talk of the tailgate! (I actually just had to Google “tailgate” to figure out what it was.) Has anyone ever worn one of these wearable blankets? They look terrifying but my apartment is really cold right now and the thought of something enveloping my body sounds pretty good.
Trace the scars life has left you. It will remind you that at one point, you fought for something. You believed.
“You are the only person who gets to decide if you are happy or not—do not put your happiness into the hands of other people. Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you or their feelings for you. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone dislikes you or if someone doesn’t want to be with you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy, of your worth. You get to be your own validation. Please don’t ever forget that.” — Bianca Sparacino
