"Don't knock it 'till you try it" they say.
Seems like a pretty wise word. I would have to disagree with that in the case of, say, heroine or facial tattoos but other than that, I'd have to agree with the statement.
Recently, I did that very thing with the ketchup cookies. I tried them. Then I knocked them. Since writing that I have given them to several more people who also like them so I continue to be the only one who thinks they are gross. #itisreallyirritating
Something else I decided to try (because a friend asked me to) (but I really thought it was silly and didn't want to do it) was writing a letter to myself. What's the point? It's me. What on earth do I have to tell myself that I don't already know? My knowledge of myself is pretty vast. I have, in fact, been there for all-of-the-things.
I did it though and you guys, there is a reason this is an exercise people do in therapy! It was very eye opening and something I still am glad I did.
My (very personal) letter to myself is being featured at Velvet Ashes today. Here is the link: Letter to my 2008 self. It includes details of a very dark time in my life, a picture of me demonstrating using a Chinese toilet and a picture of a castle made entirely of ice. Come on. One of those things HAS to be interesting enough to read it!
