It only gets colder

As you head up north in the winter. An obvious statement for some, but something I dared not think about until I actually got my large but lovely derriere on a bus and headed to Montreal. Then off to Quebec City, which is where I am now, as I type this. Why? you may ask, and some of you may already know the answer, but for those who don't "why" is a crooked letter. At least that's what my mother always told me when I asked too many questions. If you really want to know - just ask and ye shall receive. And if you don't care, then I could care less..so hah...

Not really. But it sounds better to say I don't care about you if you don't care about me...doesn't it? How often do we not really care about what other people think of us? And how much should we care anyway?

I care about what the people I care about think about me. But that doesn't change my decisions or actions. Perhaps it should, but I know that ultimately I am the only one who has to live with my decisions. No one else has to live with you. They can walk away if they don't like what you have to say/do/be...but you can't. You are stuck with you. Kind of makes you realize that no matter where you are in life, you are always a little more alone than you thought.

So stop thinking. And love yourself already. Dammit.
