Phenomenal.. oh yes. :)

While I work on this catharsis of mine.. this metamorphosis
into the REAL ME.. :) I shall not lose sight of what is
important. Nor will I lose those fundamental things which
make me.. me. :) Because I happen to like me. And now that
the Drama Queen in me has panicked enough for everyone..
lol I am ready to start.. But, first reaffirm this part of
me.. which I love.. :)

Phenomenal Woman

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size.
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say, It's in the reach of my arms. The span of my hips.
The stride of my step. The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman. Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman. That's me.

I walk into a room, Just as cool as you please.
And to a man, The fellows stand or fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me. A hive of honey bees.
I say, It's the fire in my eyes. And the flash of my teeth.
The swing in my waist. And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman. Phenomenally. Phenomenal Woman. That's me.

Men themselves have wondered, What they see in me.
They try so much, But they can't touch,
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them, They say they can't see.
I say, It's in the arch of my back. The sun of my smile.
The ride of my breasts. The grace of my style.
I'm a woman. Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman. That's me.
- - - -
Now you understand, Just why my head's not bowed.
I don't shout or jump about. Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing, It ought to make you proud.
I say, It's in the click of my heels. The bend of my hair.
The palm of my hand. The need for my care.
'Cause I'm a woman. Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman. That's

That's one of my favourite pieces. I love it. I am
phenomenal. :) Ever since I first read that.. I have lived
it. It's so amazing. How it transforms you. To see that in
yourself.. to live it.. to enjoy it. :)

Which is why it hurt so much when one of my best friends in
all the world came at me with this the other day:

ergot: how does your hair look then?
jjq: I love my hair.. :) thanks for asking..
ergot: you are full of yourself.. doesnt anyone find that
jjq: no I'm not... I just said I love it.
ergot: i love me.. i love my hair.. i love my hairdresser..
i am phenominal.. i love myself sooo much.. but not as much
as i love thats ok
jjq: shut up
ergot: ok.. i will
jjq: sorry for saying shut up. but I had to say something.
I should have just said 'stop' though.

I won't let it get to me though..
