I worked, played, stalked by a creep and contacted the Feds, my father passed away, going back to blonde, health goals met, started noticing some flirting though “Stella ain’t got her groove back” yet – and survived it all.
I realize after hearing stories, that I’m nothing like the rest of the family and I’m extremely grateful for it. I’ll continue to treasure being the ‘black sheep’ of the family. It’s what I do best. I wish I had learned this years ago, but now is fine too. I am not sorry if you’re reading this. I do not like how you treat each other. A family gathering with you all is described as: A rabbit hole filled with cobras wearing crosses.
I do have a renewed faith in friendships again. Friendships really are like a garden, you have to remove the weeks to see the real fruit/veggies who feed (encourage etc) you as much as you feed (encourage etc) them. Update: I paused while writing this ‘blog’ and ended up finding this article called, “5 Tools for Pulling Weeds from Your Heart” By Genevieve Schmitt.
Yep – this is probably the same shit written another year gone by. I don’t like to do too much details, it is after all, the Internet. I know all too well that there are some mentally unstable people out there who need to get help. So if this is boring, I’m proud that it is now.
I shall leave you with some of my favorite quotes – maybe they can inspire those of you who stumble on this blog:
“To thine own self be true…..”
~Shakespeare or Sir Francis Bacon depending on how much history you really are into.
“Above all, be true to yourself, and if you cannot put your heart in it, take yourself out of it.” ~ Unknown
“If you’re absent during my struggle, don’t expect to be present during my success.” ~Actor, Will Smith
I bend like a weed in the wind; My enemies perfect me.
Before enlightenment – chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment – chop wood, carry water.
~Zen Buddhist Proverb
Tomorrow always comes, and today is never yesterday. ~S.A. Sachs
Reason and faith are both banks of the same river. ~Doménico Cieri Estrada
