Feeling Unsexy...Try this

Not only do I write, but I may have said in a post or two that music is my life.  Music has the power of cleansing my soul.

So this morning I woke up feeling unsexy and a little disgusted.  Maybe it was because I spent all day Saturday in bed not doing anything except reading vampire books and watching Investigation Discovery #thatwilldoit

However, in all of my unsexiness and feeling quite unattractive inside and out, I decided to put on some music #soulcleansing.

Then I took a shower.  I stepped out of that shower feeling like I could be a Playboy centerfold #confidencelevelatanalltimehigh  .

So, my advice, if you wake up in the morning, afternoon, or nighttime and you just aren't feelin' it...try this.  I guarantee you, you'll feel different.

Step 1: Don't look in the mirror.
Go to your computer and download the following songs to your iPod.

** Sweetest Berry - David Ryan Harris (@drh3) ft John Mayer & Bob Reynolds (@bob_reynolds)

** Ain't No Sunshine - John Mayer (Bill Withers Cover)

Step 2: Do Not Look in the Mirror!

Plug in your iPod to whatever sound system you have that allows you to hear it in the bathroom.  Hit play and make a mad dash to the bathroom.

Step 3: Get in shower
Not bath...shower.  Even if you don't normally take showers, do it just this once.

Don't be afraid...let loose.  No one is watching.  Gyrate your hips, rub your hands over your body.  You can do that, it's yours.  Remember, no one sees you.  It's okay.  Sing along if you want.  Have fun! Be Sexy

See, don't you feel a lot better now?

There's a John Mayer song for that

Nothing hit home harder for me than that.

Let's just say, I've lost focus.  Up until 1 hour ago, I was ready to just throw in the towel and say "Fuck it".  The words of unsupportive people kept echoing in my head.  With so much riding on a dream AND so much work to do, I just didn't think I could do it anymore.  Too overwhelmed for words.

Near tears, head in hand, I sat staring at my computer screen, praying that something...just one thing would come to mind. Something to write, tweet...say that would make me feel like all is not lost.

Frustrated beyond belief at the silence in my head, I got up to take a shower.  I turned up "the Black one" and showered, letting JM play all throughout the house.

Then I remembered this song.  This is my "get it together" anthem.  It brought me back to where I need to be.  I'm not going to give up.
