Much more than alright
Tell yourself the truth
It is bananas to me the amount of weight we as humans put on ourselves for the most minor of things. We are the converters of drizzle to downpour and I don’t know who equipped us with such skill but I want gone of it. Let me speak blunt and let me talk honest. You’re a superstar if you opened your eyes this morning. And today we are going to do something odd but truly helpful. It will take less than a minute. And I don’t want you reading this and not doing it so if you’re reading on, consider this your commitment. Your biro on the dotted line. I want you to take your phone and open the text message app (which has probably been feeling unloved lately) and I want you to text yourself a genuine compliment. The best part is, it will then appear twice. It doesn’t matter if it is stupid and there is no line on how far you can take this, it is entirely personal. Whether you want to tell yourself you look smoking hot today or tell yourself you have a great smile or even get into a full-blown conversation with yourself, it is totally okay. Then anytime the world throws its waves against you, I need you to remember that you are a stubborn cliff (see, totally dumb compliments are great). Look at that compliment you sent and remember the truth behind it. Take that negativity, throw it out of the window and bring back the positivity. If you fancy it even leave some dumb compliments in the comments so we can all have a little laugh and feel good about ourselves because humour is stronger than most shades of darkness and knowing you are not alone has only ever made everything better. Go forth now and love yourself!
You are the dart that hit the bullseye ten miles away
You are a submarine that grew wings
You are a jelly bean in a bowl of black olives
It is an odd thing that Halloween has passed yet I am here still talking about the spooks. I recently released HAF3 aka Halloween As Fuck Three and I labelled it the last in the trilogy because I feel they have outgrown their Halloween beginnings. I feel the zines are spooky at their core but have grown to a point where they deserve love all year round. I have been toying with titles and a magazine called ‘SPOOKS’ seems to be a top contender. I know a novella of the creek is also on the horizon. If you are reading this, thank you for being here. If you love my words please consider getting yourself a copy of HAF3 or even the trilogy. I have priced them low so more of you can enjoy them. I put my everything into these projects and $13 for three zines and three audio zines is a steal.
And here is that SEXY riff!
