I think “Be yourself,” is great advice, although sometimes it can be weird because if you know who you are, being yourself is natural, and if you don’t, you don’t know what’s you and what’s not you, so it’s a deceptively complicated motto.
Regardless, I think there are days when we could all use a little time being a unicorn. (And I mean this in the magical, innocent, glittery sense, not in the Dan Savage sense. Although if that’s your thing, then go forth into the world and make people happy.)
(If you don’t know what the Dan Savage sense of “unicorn” is, and you’re about to head to Google, just beware. It’s not that bad, but there are some things you should never search on Google. Like the Dirty Sanchez. JUST DON’T DO IT. Jon Stewart said it on the Daily Show once and now I can never go back to a time when I didn’t know what that meant.)
I’m sorry. Where was I? Oh, yes. Glittery unicorns. Beautiful, elegant, sleek, and yet they’ll skewer you in a heartbeat if you mess with them. For fucked or fab, how were you a unicorn this week?
