Loving Life


I remember being a teenager and having these insane debilitating crushes on cute seniors in high school. If one of them passed me in the hallway and noticed me, I’d practically faint. As if I’d won the Miss America contest. And then I’d scribble our initials inside little hearts all over my notebooks. For hours. I’m pretty sure I burned all those.


Thank goodness we graduate from one-sided delusional crushes to reciprocated love. And we get to experience the most beautiful thing there is: how to love and be loved in return.  I think there may be a song or two about that.

Actually, there’s another kind of love we experience when we’re young before we ever start dating anyone. It’s the love we feel for our besties. When we’re teens it’s like our lives would make no sense without our best friends. We talk to them incessantly. About EVERYTHING. While we barely speak two words to our parents.

Yep, that “besties love” is unique to a time in our lives when everything feels upside down.

Falling in love is something we're made to do.

It’s in our DNA. It makes us feel totally invincible and totally vulnerable all at the same time. As in, we think we can do anything in spite of being scared out of our minds. In other words, we’re completely and utterly inspired.

And feeling inspired is essential to our happiness.

The more I think about it, the more I realize that we go through life loving others as a kind of practice. We’re learning to not only love and be loved by others, but also to love being alive. To love Life.

When we can be in love with Life, we can live inspired lives.

And loving life starts with being your own best friend.

My Twinki-Winki mission is to inspire you to be your own bestie. And we all know how we treat our besties, right? I mean, we already know how to be there for them. What we gotta learn is how to be there for ourselves. We gotta find joy in our day-to-day. And that may take a little attitude adjusting, because you need to believe that:

You're already worthy of all you desire.

Thinking you don’t deserve the good you desire is what keeps you from getting it.

We’ve all grown up believing that our success depends on us being better and doing more. Well, how’s that going for ya? Because in my case, it’s got me dealing with chronic tension. As in pain in my shoulders for as long as I can remember. But things are getting better because I’ve finally accepted that my success and happiness don’t depend on me doing more. It’s such a relief.

I’ve realized that my success and happiness depend on me feeling good about myself. Trying to always do more means I don’t feel I deserve to feel good right now. I’ve gotta work for it to deserve it, if ya know what I mean. But there will never come a time that I’ll feel good enough if that’s the broken record playing in my head. And where’s the joy in that?

Twinki-Winki is feeling fab whenever you darn well please. Made for your machine-washable-life. Amen.

Twinki-Winki Life mottos support your attitude of living with joy.

Life motto number 1: Life is a come-as-you-are party.

And your only job is to feel good. But for that you’ve gotta accept that you always deserve to feel good. You’ve gotta feel worthy enough to allow yourself to feel good.

Life motto number 2: Fill your life with art and the joy will follow.

Find art that makes you feel good to be you. Let it delight your senses and lift your spirit. And then milk it for all it’s worth. Because art is the stuff that makes you feel grateful to be alive. And that's what joy is all about.

Life is too short to put feeling fabulous on hold. You gotta twinki-winki.
