Going Around A Roundabout

Slow Down & Pace Things Out

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

Why is it that when Mondays come around we hit the gate running only to be all worn out by the end of the week???πŸ€”

This morning when I woke up my head was going so fast with all the things I want to get done this week that I felt like my head was driving around a roundabout 😡 Stuck in the inside lane when I needed to be on the outside lane 😲

So needless to say I had to step back, slow down and prioritize not only my today list, but my this week list too..πŸ˜•

So instead of running out the gate, learn to pace things out… This way your head won’t feel like you’re going around a roundabout πŸ™ƒπŸ˜πŸ™ƒ

Have a great move a little slower Monday my friends πŸ€—πŸ’—πŸ€—

Anger Is One Letter Away From Danger

So AlwaysThink Before You Speak

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—.

It always amazes me when I see someone taking their anger out on others even if it’s not the other person’s fault.. or you walk into the crossfire of someone’s anger or bad day and it becomes your fault…πŸ˜±πŸ€”

I’ve always been one that if I’m angry, having a bad day or just wake up on the wrong side of the bed, I tend to isolate.. if I’m depressed or really sad, I tend to isolate…

It’s not because of any reason other than I do not believe in projecting my mood onto anyone else…

Whether mad, sad or depressed.. if I want or need to talk about it I will… if not I’ll stay away until I work it out myself, yet I don’t ever project my yucky mood on anyone else.. especially if it’s not their fault I’m in that type of mood to begin with πŸ™„πŸ€”

Taking your anger or frustration out on anyone isn’t ok…

When I am in the crossfire of someone else’s bad mood, it always reminds me that ANGER is one letter away from DANGER and the only thing that projecting your anger onto someone else does is push the other person away πŸ™„

Anger leads us to saying things that we don’t really feel or don’t really mean to say, and it brings up trust issues too, especially if something is said that you really don’t mean but say in the heat of the moment!

And although actions do speak louder than words, our actions when we are angry usually match the words that we say…

NOT GOOD…😱

So whenever you are angry, remember who or what you’re angry at, think before you say a word… cause some words you can’t take back!!!

The Meaning Of FINE

It’s Totally True Too


Hello World & Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—πŸ’—

One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned through the years is to always honor your feelings.. no matter what they are… You’re feelings are always valid!! They are your feelings and no one has the right to dispute them! πŸ™„

Today a friend gave me a beautiful compliment saying that she loves when someone asks me if I’m ok I say “No.. But I will be!” when I’m not and I don’t ever say “I’m fine!” cause there’s always something underlying with the word FINE..(I’ll tell you my definition of FINE in a sec hahaπŸ€”… 

I’ve always been one on the up and up with however I’m feeling and ever since my son passed away, I’ve been even more of an advocate for everyone male and female to show their feelings and never ever hide them…. πŸ€—…

Have you ever noticed that if you’re not doing ok or when someone says that they are FINE that there is usually something going on… For me FINE totally means 

F=Fuc*** Up, I=Insecure, N=Neurotic, E=Emotional… 

And while it may not mean all of those at the time… There is always something going on when you say I’m FINE otherwise we say… I’m ok..I’m great etc..πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”

Always be aware of how your feeling and never ever allow anyone to discredit how you feel cause they are your feelings and each and every one of them is valid… πŸ€”πŸ™„

It truly is a gift to wear your feelings on your sleeve… 

Not everyone does it and everyone should… 

Cause bottling up how you feel is harmful to your health and to your well-being… 

Always know that it’s ok to show others how you feel… It shows that you are human.. It shows that you are REAL!!! πŸ€—πŸ’—πŸ€—.

Have a fantabulous day my friends πŸ€—πŸ’—

Watch For Burnout Cues

Take Some Time For You


Hello World & Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—πŸ’—

Have you ever noticed that during the winter season and the holidays we tend to get more burnt out then other times of the year? πŸ€”πŸ€”… 

We catch colds easier, we’re way more tired and stressed too.. is it because it’s cold out?? Is it because it’s Christmas and we’re rushing around like lunatics?? 

Or is it simply because we get so caught up in everything we want to get done before the end of the year that we forget to stop and take time out for ourselves? πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”.

Almost everyone I know is either stressed because of Christmas, saying they don’t have enough time or money to get stuff done or they are sick as a dog with a cold or flu!! 

Hmmmmm πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€” there really isn’t any difference between this time of year and any other time of year yet we make ourselves crazy and wind up getting burnt out, physically ill or both!! πŸ˜₯πŸ˜–πŸ˜·..

We truly are in control of our physical and emotional well being and our body does give us cues when we need to chill out and slow down… 

The problem is.. 

We usually don’t listen until it’s too late… 

We wind up exhausted or physically ill and then we can’t do anything… Which again makes everything worse!!! πŸ™πŸ™„πŸ€”..

No holiday, job or person is worth your getting burnt out or sick…

Listen to your body… 

Watch out for the cues… 

Slow down a little bit and remember to take care of YOU!! 😊..

People Will Be People

No Matter What You Say or Do


Hello World

“Sometimes it’s not the people that change… It’s their mask that falls off!” ~Unknown Author 

I’m not sure why it always amazes me when people act out of sorts… I’m always me and I’ve been the same all my life! Yet when people do a total 360Β° I tend to get shocked, surprised or totally thrown for a loop.. πŸ˜΅πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ˜±

This morning as I was doing my morning reading, I came across the above quote and it hit me hard because I’m actually going through that with a couple people that live where I do.. I do believe that people come and go into our lives for a reason.. 

Whether it be for a lesson or for life yet I don’t understand how people can be one way one minute and flip like a coin the next… πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”

My biggest pet peeve is a two-faced person.. Maybe it’s because I’m so up front.. Maybe it’s because I’m too trusting and see the best in everyone.. Maybe it’s because I have a huge heart and am a giver… Maybe it’s because I’m an adult and don’t sugar coat shit.. I’m NOT Willy Wonka… 😠😑😠…

I use to have no problem confronting someone and was never afraid of confrontation yet throughout the years I’ve learned that it’s not worth my peace of mind or energy to engage in high school he said she said nah nah nah nah nah games..Yet it still at times gets to me 😩

Moral of this story: People will be people no matter what we say or do… Just be yourself and walk away don’t let others negativity get to you!!!!

Have a beautiful day world πŸŒ»πŸ€—πŸŒ»

Know Your Value, Know Your Worth

Know That You’re A Star

Hello World,

There’s so much chaos and nonsense in our world today.. That’s makes us feel unsure about what we do and what we say.. πŸ™„πŸ˜’πŸ€”

When I tell people that I do stay extremely informed about everything that’s going on in our world yet I haven’t watched the news in over 25 yrs they get shocked and surprised… Well tonight I was sitting at a neighbor’s house talking and they had the news on… I couldn’t get that first sentence in my poem out of my head the whole time… And it made me realize how much BS we are filled with on a daily basis from the media, and then we wonder why we sometimes don’t know which way is up or which way is down…πŸ€”πŸ€”

I could discuss this topic forever yet for me it’s Nonsense too… Cause the most important things in the world is how you truly treat others and how you truly feel about you. πŸ™„πŸ˜€

Know your value, know your worth & know how strong you are..Know that living true to yourself is what makes you into a star🌟❀🌟

I will be leaving my gofundme link active for anyone that would like to help… Or if anyone has one of those items they would be willing to donate please email me, send me a direct message or comment below.
