Darling Friends! Did you have a warm, fuzzy, positively gluttonous Thanksgiving, I hope? Mine was magical. I needed some serious family time and I got it.
It’s strange that I wasn’t around here with gratitude lists and a recipe for my almost raw vegan pumpkin cheesecake with salted pecan crust (based on the frosting in this recipe). Seems like a missed opportunity: Rosie Glow’s first Thanksgiving! But the truth is, I’ve been a little busy… feeling down on myself and my abilities. So I’m going to do what any sane person with a public forum at her disposal would do — tell herself what she needs to hear in a thinly veiled second person narrative. Obviously.
You are young. You are talented. The world is your motherf*cking oyster.
Look. Hater’s gon’ hate. You will always be “too much of something for somebody.” Too wild. Too messy. Too young, Son. Here’s what I think: when people sh*t all over you and point out your purported flaws, it’s because they’re terrified of your tremendous strengths. So let’s start this week off on an unapologetic foot: you be you. Uninhibited, unfettered, untamed you — and see how the jerks among you manage without a willing scapegoat.
Happy Monday, Boo. What do you need to hear today?
