I was looking for something entirely different when I ran across this photo of me in my early Thirties in a waterfall in, I’m pretty sure, Thailand (but could have been Laos or Vietnam) but more to the point, I’m sharing this because rarely does one run across a photo of yourself in a bikini and go, You know what I should do, I should share this pic with the whole world, but then, once in a while, you DO run across that pic, and you’re just in the right mood and frame of mind, and you’re now just old and wise enough to appreciate yourself in your youth, which you did not do back then when you should have, so now
Old Prime Carla has your back! LOL
Today’s lesson: Rarely should we be as hard on ourselves as we are. Unless you’re not even trying. Then, BUCK THE FUCK UP!
EDIT: I originally posted this on Facebook, but now changed that “Old Carla” to PRIME CARLA, because I believe we are what we think, and I’m not old yet–I’m not even half way! Those who caught my emceeing at Anarchapulco will get the “Prime” joke, which goes something like this: When you can’t read your cue cards on stage without glasses and you’re trying to be smooth and proffesh, while trying to balance the cue cards and your “Old Lady glasses” between speakers, and so finally, you just end up just yelling, “THESE ARE MY ‘IN MY PRIME’ GLASSES, PEEPS! IN MY PRIME!!!”
