Polly manifested when I finally realized most of what I was taught as a child was true. Go figure!
But, *shhhhhh* don't tell my parents I said that.
I was taught if you don't like something, find a way to fix it.
As a result, Polly has a serious problem with whiners. She loves a good rant, but will not tolerate those who dwell. So get it out of your system and move on, 'cause your squeaking pathetic voice is grating on her last nerve!
I was taught to live a life of glass-half-full, always expecting and ready for more.
As a result, Polly's a cheerleader without the annoying chants or sparkling pom-poms. Sniffing out the hope in even the most F.U.B.A.R. of situations, she'll talk you off the ledge and remind you to kick some ass!
I was taught to laugh, especially at myself!
As a result, Polly has enough ridiculous material to give you a chuckle and remind you things can always get worse.
Ultimately, I started Pep Talk Polly because sometimes life sucks. Sometimes it seems like you'll never get off the rollercoaster, and if you hear one more well-meaning platitude about how life gives you lemons, and whatever doesn't kill us only makes us stronger, you might scream!
And at a time like that you don't need a lecture from a professional or another new age philosophy.
When the hits just keep on coming, what you need is a Pony Ride.
You remember the cheap $.25 rides that you used to find at the front of every grocery store? Whenever, my Dad would see an exhausted toddler, screaming and wailing in the arms of a parent desperately trying to run just one more errand, he would declare,
"That child needs a Pony Ride!"
A cheap, plastic, sometimes sticky, always ridiculous, sure to get a giggle, distraction from whatever crap life's thrown at you. That's Pep Talk Polly!
Here to listen to you rant, give you a reality check when you need it, and remind you to chuckle at the ridiculous.
