Encouraging You To Build Your Best Self!!!
On Some Other 💩
We are only 3 days into this elf business this year and it seems kind of hard to keep up with Jaxon…either I fall asleep before I remember to put him out or I wake up and forget to situate him before I get the kids up. Either way I have to do better ASAP.
Seems like both Jaxon and I are on some other shit this year…now I just have to remember to take my good Ghirardelli chocolate morsels out of the bathroom and put them back in the kitchen after the kids finish eating breakfast. 🤦🏾♀️
And would you know…now I have to use the bathroom…to the other end of the house I go so I don’t disturb the scene before the kids discover him. Who will find Jaxon first today? 🤔
These boxes are stacked in a corner un-used…tonight I’m going to date myself and use one of these date boxes…the conversation starter is going to be the kicker
Today I’m doing something I never thought I’d have to do. And normally I’d let this go…I wouldn’t trip but it is affecting my tomorrow…and I had to sit and think about my next steps.
I’m an avid procrastinator and I put off what I can do right now to do later merely out of convenience or just refusal to complete the task.
Am I going to continue to let this affect my life negatively? What can I do to change the situation? What will bring me peace? I ask myself all these questions sitting in silence.
This entire situation is unreal. It sounds like a fucked up Lifetime movie up when it’s spoken aloud. But it is my life currently. And the saying is when you can’t control a situation, control your attitude towards it and/or how you respond to it.
Well friends, I’m tired. I know, I know. I say it a lot. But with this I think anyone who knows the situation can agree I’m tired. I’ve been through the most. I’ve dealt with the most. I’ve turned every cheek. I’ve tried to remain cordial and respectful and now that my patience has worn out and my peace has been disrupted, I have to do something different.
Even though I’ve been 100% transparent and honest, we approached the same impasse that we were at before over a year ago. Nothing has changed. Until this week. I changed…
Until I close this chapter, it’s impossible for me to start another no matter how much I think I can. Taking things to a legal level is not how I normally operate but drastic times calls for drastic measures. I don’t communicate threats because I know first hand how they can come back to bite you in your ass. But I’m just ready to start fresh somewhere else with the one I love.
Taking this route is my way of no longer “talking” about what I’m going to do or what I want to happen. Instead I have to take the necessary steps to get me where I want to be.
Breaking generational curses…I’m all for that. I don’t think I was placed here to be like follow anyone else. It’s time I move mountains to get to my peace…and hope that my peace is also moving mountains to meet me halfway.
Strutting in this courthouse sporting nothing but honesty, a little fatigue and a smile on my face. I can’t allow this situation to dull my sparkle or deter me from my dreams. We have a plan…and I’m down to stick to it…
For once I didn’t put off today what I could do tomorrow for one more person who doesn’t give a shit about me. I choose me today…I choose my happiness…I choose my peace…I choose healthy and loving parenting…I choose not being the norm…I choose my Baby Love…
Whatever it takes is my mindset now…I need my peace back…
National Beach Day
If you follow my blog, you know the beach is one of my most favorite places to be!
If you are able bodied and available; GO TO THE BEACH!!! And let me be mindful of those who don’t live close to a beach…I didn’t forget you. You all can also visit a lake, pond or a river. Any body of water. Go out for a swim, sit or lay in the sand and appreciate all that life has to offer. Take pictures, have a picnic or build a sandcastle.
Now relaxing at the beach is always a bonus in my book. But the day isn’t just meant to celebrate the beach. It is also a day to place emphasis on keeping this beautiful area clean. Every day many animals in the ocean are killed by cans, fishing line, oil spills, plastic and other trash. So after relaxing at the beach or before you begin to relax take a moment and clean up any garbage that you may see. Don’t worry about what others may think or say. This isn’t about them. It is all about keeping this peaceful area clean and the animals safe.
Pack a bag, scoop up a friend, grab your earbuds, and go enjoy National Beach Day!!!
