Something happened today that made me mad.  I have to let it out or I may explode.  So, welcome to my rant of the week.  Apparently, if you don't have children and you work, you're just a warm body.  You're not a person.  If you're a woman who doesn't have children and you have a job, people don't think that you should be able to come in late, leave early, take sick leave, use vacation days, go on trips, have a decent schedule or have a life outside of work.  And when you try to stand up for yourself, you're told that "you don't have a family to feed, you wouldn't understand."  Actually, I do.  My family may be less than traditional, but nevertheless, there are bills to be paid, mouths to feed, things that happen, days off that are needed, etc.  Also, mind you, this wasn't exactly my choice.  I would love to be a stay at home mom, but I'm not, so don't punish me for that.  Seriously.  Just because my life is different doesn't mean that it's wrong or bad.  So there.

My life...and Kelly Clarkson.

Many times, the best way to explain the way I feel is through music.
So, here's the video that I'm feeling lately.
No, I don't drink or do drugs.
I deal with my own demons as we all do.
This song means so much more to me than just the lyrics.
It's about an incredible journey, both of finding myself and of accepting my life the way that it is.
So, of course, I wanted to share.
Internalize, love, live and enjoy.
