You Better Werk — One Glittering Moment to Slay The Runway

You Better Werk — One Glittering Moment to Slay The Runway

I got up that morning thinking I was going to a doctor’s appointment. My thyroid is acting up again so I was Hashtag Adulting. The thing was, I also had a ticket to be in the live studio audience for the RuPaul show, a new talk show taping a three-week test to run on select Fox stations (New York, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Houston, San Francisco, Minneapolis, and Charlotte).

I was in my local Marina del Rey Ralph’s grocery store and came upon two giggling and very excited young women in front of an impressive Hot Wheels display.

Why Toxic People Are Dangerous: Sashay Away

Reading the last email where someone in my life decided to put me and my work down in front of other people I started thinking about my How to Kick Fear and Toxicity Out of the Workplace presentation, and I came to the following:

We have three choices as we navigate dealing with toxic people:

  • The path of least resistance — Keeping quiet, lowering expectations trying to get through with as few confrontations as possible

  • The path of confrontation — Getting down and getting into it

  • The path of “I’m done” — To turn on one’s heel and simply walk away.

With hope and thanks today and every day. Happy Women’s History Month.

International Women’s Day? Women’s History Month? I believe every day and every month are (or should be) about women. But not just women; I want all humans to get it together, as in two-gether. Because it takes two (or really more like 7.7 billion) people to make this thing work. We need everyone, every day.
