You find the following sexy:

be proud

be proud

Today, you have permission to

be proud of what you’re good at instead of ashamed of what you’re not good at. Good at remembering to give your dog his medicine? Awesome! Who cares that you’re not good at couponing. Someone else is good at that.

do one thing at a time

do one thing at a time

Today, you have permission to

do one thing at a time. When you’re reading, just read; don’t try to talk on the phone and do laundry at the same time. When you’re writing an email to your friend, don’t beat yourself up by thinking about all the other things you should be doing instead. Just write the email.

yell "F*&k the patriarchy!"

yell "F*&k the patriarchy!"

Today, you have permission to

yell “Fuck the patriarchy!” (in private, preferably, though if you’re inclined to do so in public, feel free—just video it so we can watch).

cry

Today, you have permission to

cry. Honey, this is not a Puritan nation anymore, and we don’t have to admire a stiff upper lip. You’ve got the sad, you get to cry. Big, messy sobs that make you sound like a toddler. Tears that make your nose run and your whole face red. There is so much loss to grieve, and if you think you shouldn’t, then you think you’re not human.

dance

dance

Today, you have permission to

dance. It’s a whole body woohoo! Put on a song that makes you want to shake dat ass (I’m partial to Stevie Wonder’s “Sir Duke” myself) and get funky. Yeah, you’re busy being broke/worrying about a family member/fighting The Man, but no, a three-minute physical celebration is not a waste of your time.
