Have it all

The Eve Series

Hello Wild Ones 🧡🧡🧡🧡,

I hope you are well and doing awesome. I hope you are taking care of yourself and not feeling guilty about it. I hope you are whispering to yourself how amazing you are each time you feel like you are disappointing yourself. I am full of peace and joy. I am really on roll. I have this innate peace that I cannot explain. I don’t think I have ever been this genuinely happy in my life.

Have it all

Mama I wanna have it all

But I can’t be too smart

Lest they call me conniving

But I can’t be too pretty

Lest that becomes all I am known for

But I can’t be too rich

Lest I discover the sugar daddy I don’t even know

But I can’t climb the ladder too high

Lest I discover I played with the screw to bring the top down

But I can’t be too confident

Lest they call me proud

But I can’t be too sexy

Lest they decide I am asking for it

I can’t even be a mother and dream too hard

Lest they call me a bad mother

Mama I just want to be me

But I can’t be too me

Lest they call me selfish

Mama what should I do?
