Friday afternoon estate sale finds. Fish magnets, an old Timex wristwatch, a pretty sugar spoon, giant measuring bowl, an alligator skin vintage purse, and an old leather coin purse that smells like dust. #vintage

Speaking of camping, here’s another #tbt of when we went camping in the desert for our tv show, Tripping Out with Alie & Georgia. We made s’mores, pitched a tent, and were two besties exploring America. You can watch the full episodes on iTunes. We surf, ride dune buggies, go to Alaska, fly in tiny planes DO I HAVE TO SPELL THIS OUT OR DO YOU GET WHAT IM SAYING??? #rage

I was recently on a great podcast in which the host interviews her guests about their experiences with drug addiction and recovery (with a humorous point of view). I loved how the episode turned out, and I thought that I got across just how I felt about my past drug use and other issues like my life-long struggle with depression and anxiety, as well as my issues with eating disorders.

But the thing is, I never shared that episode. I was embarrassed, I think. As much as I feel lucky to have gotten through so many hardships in my life and how well I’ve turned out, it’s scary to be that vulnerable and that naked about your flaws and mistakes. 

But flaws, mistakes, lessons learned and giant, epic fumbles are who we all are, and I’ve never liked people who put on facades anyway. I like the fuck-ups and the hilariously, proudly flawed. I’m one of them. 

I’ve had a very close family member casually tell me that they were seriously considering suicide. I’ve thought about it myself in the past but am lucky enough to know how to ask for help and how to accept it. Depression is in my bones and DNA, and it’s something I’ll never escape, but feel so incredibly lucky to be at peace with that.

Life is one big, insane project of working on becoming a better person, and I figure that maybe being a better person for me means sharing what an epic failure I’ve been at times in my life, and how I’ve crawled my way out of that.

As my grandmother Mollie Hardstark used to say, “bigger dummies than you…” Think about it: bigger dummies than you have created happy, productive, fulfilling lives. Which probably means that we can do it, too. 

Here’s the episode: After Party Podcast: Georgia Hardstark
