Thank you for all the JOY and Sequins✨
Viva La Vulva Tour… What on earth was I thinking?
A couple of weeks ago when I found out my show was sold out in Galway, I panicked.
OMG! Who was I to think I could jump around onstage in a superwoman costume? Superwoman? Me? SuperMacs maybe…
Oh my god… my nerves were shot. There were so many balls up in the air (not Carlo’s 🐶) and I was terrified I would drop them.
Would we get the bags stuffed with all the goodies ? I mean Jennifer Rock was going to be there! And Kyla Cobbler! I knew she’d get a laugh at least… I knew I also had my trusty pelvic floor specialist and fellow sequined gal-pal Aoife Harvey who’d stop me from, literally, peeing my pants!
But most of all- GUESS WHO CAME? YOU! YOU CAME! And yes we did cover all things sexy 😍 As I said- A man will know his parts because he’s always playing with them!
You all decided to make a day of it, from all around the country. One sparkled gal came all the way from the other side of the Atlantic 🚣! She said it was her treat for her 50th! WOO HOO!
You all decided to put yourself at the TOP of your to-do lists!
You showed up for you- and your friends and mothers came too! I can’t tell you the joy that was felt in that room. Your mums told me they wished this was around ‘in their day’.
Listen- EVERY day is YOUR day!
The Viva La Vulva Tour showed me how important it is to gather in REAL life, to build a community to support and educate. The energy you gave lifted me- and Jaysus, who doesn’t need a lift these days?
And I could feel something building here....Something important, a sense of belonging… a club for us all!
Yes there was craic and prosecco and disco & boy did you all come dressed to impress… 🤩
We also learned a lot about our bodies without feeling awkward or alone. And it’s this loneliness that we women feel that keeps me going on this wild path!
I knew this from working in the pharmacy for years, but I wanted you all to realise that IT’S NOT JUST YOU! We all share similar journeys and when we gather together we can share a wealth of knowledge and wisdom.
I feel a real sense of pride building this for you (and let’s face it, I am loving it too!) because we don’t need stats to show us that loneliness is our modern ailment. According to Our World In Data as we age, we are spending MORE and MORE time alone.💔
So this week I want to THANK all you FABÜLOUS women for coming out and making me feel less alone & all the other women in the room too.
You made the Viva La Vulva Tour such a GREAT event & as of writing this, Kerry is sold out -GWAN THE KINGDOM!... but there’s still a few tickets available for Cork.
You got up, got dressed and SHOWED UP for YOU!
Looking forward to doing it all again… see you soon Kerry!
Now- I’m off to polish my sequins 😀
