A Droplet of Inspiration

Sometimes you find inspiration in the most unlikely of places, like Perez Hilton:

“When I wake up in the morning, I feel just like any other insecure 24-year-old girl. Then I say, ‘Bitch, you’re Lady GaGa, you get up and walk the walk today.'”

Now, do this with me: Replace the number 24 with your age. Switch out girl for guy (if need be). Replace “Lady GaGa” with your fabulous name. Say it out loud, and say it out proud.

I’ll start.

“When I wake up in the morning, I feel just like any other insecure 25-year-old girl. Then I say, ‘Bitch, you’re Holly the frickin’ Healthy Everythingtarian, you get up and walk the walk today!'”

Then, repeat it to yourself 10 times.

And go walk the dayum walk.

Now, you’ll have to excuse me…I have a feast of balsamic braised swiss chard, peanut butter cup ice cream and a bottle of Spotted Cow beer to attend to while gluing my eyes to two hours of So You Think You Can Dance.

Until the next droplet falls…

“Bitch, you’re Mama Pea, you get up and walk the walk today!”

OMG could I love this more?! Doubtful. I wish I could watch people do this in the morning. Or at least submit my video response because I’m sure I’d look like a fool. But in a good way ;-)

Crystal June 25, 2010 at 8:19 pm

This is amazing! Definitely walking the damn walk now. This is exactly what I needed to see today. :)
