Mind body health for the deeply fabulous

The World, Oysters, Etc.


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. 

I'm going to embroider that sh*t on a pillow.

I’m going to embroider that sh*t on a pillow.

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?

Hey you! is largely devoted to musings on what balance means to an urbane, artsy-fartsy twenty-something. It’s tough out here for us post-grad women: if you’re not homeless, you’re doing something right. But do you, too, worry that you spend too much time furrowing your brows over your future when you should be unwrapping and relishing your present? Do you, like me, sometimes feel like everyone expects you to be the type of person who spends the majority of her entry-level “arts” paycheck on fifteen dollar old-timey cocktails, four a.m. cab rides home and everything sequined on the Urban Outfitters sale rack when, perhaps, you are really the type of person who would rather drink cucumber mint kale juice while wearing yoga pants and Googling reiki techniques? Is it possible that such a person is one and the same, and she is fabulous in her own, very confused right? Sister girl, I hear you. I know you. I accept you. I also know in my happy gut, full heart and coffee-addled brain that you and I are gorgeous glow worms, just as we are! We are sparkle ponies of light and love and we are still in the process of teasing out our true, authentic selves with all of this… living. So if you don’t have it figured out, if you acknowledge that you never will and that is tremendously exciting, if you want to connect with other smart chicks and tap into that charming inner-self of yours, then come back real soon, ya hear? We’re family now!
