Before any important decision in 2017, I’m just going to ask myself: “how many f*cks would Carrie Fisher give?” and then do what I want. 🔥
This goddess is my patron saint of badass women. There’s so much she could have kept hidden, but chose not to; in speaking out about her struggles, she improved countless lives (including my own).
Carrie Fisher was so much more than a princess. She was a love warrior of the highest degree. Her uncompromising spirit will long outlive the rest of us.
My deepest condolences and prayers go out to her beautiful family. ❤👑
In honor of Carrie Fisher, I challenge you to use vulnerability as a strength. Give no f*cks, for a second. Try it out:
I DARE YOU to come clean about something you’ve struggled with. You never know who needs to hear it, until you say it. It can be small, or it can be huge. Whatever you’re dealing with, let us know.
My struggle: C-PTSD & trauma recovery.
Her struggle: Bipolar disorder & addiction recovery.
My cat’s struggle: Existential dread & hairballs.
Your struggle: __(it’s going to be okay)__
In 2017, we need to be there for each other. Carrie listened as much as she shared.
Together, we can overcome anything. Carrie Fisher is just one example of what speaking out and facing fear can do. She said and did whatever the f*ck she wanted, and the world was better for it.
Thank you, madam. You will be missed.
