While a large number of people are trash-talking Miley Cyrus – she’s been a busy gal, doing a lot of not crazy things. Last I checked, there’s nothing insane or negative about supporting a cause you care about.
Common sense is not an all-or-nothing thing; there are levels or something like that… [I haven’t done any real research]. If someone has a low level of common sense paired with an undesirable trait, that undesirable trait is inflated by 303%.
Bitch. I was thinking about the day I got married; excuuuse me if I got lost in my moment. Really, I’m sorry.
The light turned green, I got eager…sped ahead & cut her off. Pretty sure she hates me.
I didn’t start calling myself a writer until I stopped allowing other people’s opinions to affect the words I jot down. For every person who think’s I’m odd, bitchy, not politically correct enough or just flat out doesn’t like me, there are plenty more who are just as fucked up as I am & can appreciate what I have to say.
Two years isn’t long in the grand scheme of things [ie: forever] but certainly long enough to learn a few things about having a spouse.
It is unacceptable to t question it. Because of this, there are people in my life I no longer speak with.
Be at war with your vices
at peace with your neighbors
and let every new year find you a better man.
This too shall pass, is what they say…whoever they are, they seem to have their crap together so I’ll take their word for it. I wish I knew who to thank for that short statement that puts things in perspective.
“Close your eyes and open up your hands…”
As if this birthday couldn’t get any better.
I’ve managed to walk into thirty with only one child being born out of wedlock (pretty proud of that), no drunk driving tickets…hell, I’ve never even been arrested, never contracted any STDs.
We as a society are walking around like a herd of cattle buying what the advertisers tell us to buy (quick, before someone you know gets it first!), saying what we think others want to hear (to make them happy) & doing things that we don’t even want to do simply to appease other people – people who could care less more often than not.
We’ve been there before, multiple times. A trail we never noticed peeked out from behind some trees & invited us in. Without thought – we proceed to have an adventure & this is what I saw.
Instead of driving straight from work to Bennett’s school that day I dropped the car off at home; I ran inside, grabbed my dog & we walked. I did not to stare at the ground below me, or Trapper’s fat behind sway from side to side. I kept my head up high. Making an unusual effort to see the things around me.
Random acts of kindness do not need to be of large magnitude. They don’t have to cost you anything & they don’t have to be time consuming; the size of your kindness does not matter. What matters is that you are helping – making someone happy & in turn…hopefully a chain reaction will begin.
Thankfully, my meltdown was brief & it had an unexpected outcome. While I combed through my hair to see if I could spot any gray, I gave myself a mental slap in the face. PULL IT TOGETHER, JEN! YOU’RE NOT OLD!
After he got his final word – a statement came out of my mouth that was exceptional…Ya know what? I’m not going to let that bother me.
Some worries are rational, others are not. If I say this, how will it be perceived? Rational. How am I going to get all this done? Rational. Did someone just break into my house while I’m showering? Irrational.
