Last week, Friday-Me heard some unsettling-yet-not-entirely-unexpected news about something I'm not supposed to know about. It has made Today-Me look at the world a little differently. It made Friday and Saturday-Me a little scared, a little desperate, a lot angry, a little sad. But Today-Me is strong. Today-Me is confident...ish. Today-Me knows she has the will-power and the stubborness to not get pushed around. Today-Me is going to kick ass today. And Tomorrow-Me plans on doing the same but Today-Me is not going to worry about Tomorrow-Me today, she can handle herself because she will be stronger, wiser, better than Today-Me.
So, tell Today-You that it's Kick Today's Ass Day, because Today-Us suck less than Yesterday-Us!
