Writing Challenge ~ Day 10: Drugs & Alcohol

Day 10.  Your views on drugs and alcohol.

Well, as a mother of 3 I definitely have views on drugs and alcohol.  I was never that “cool” mom that let my kids drink at an early age.  You know the kind of parent that let their kids drink with them while they were underage as long as they were drinking with the parents.  No, not for us.  My husband does not drink whatsoever and I am an occasional/social drinker.  I think if you are old enough to drink and do it responsibly there is absolutely nothing wrong with it.  As for drugs, I feel like they should legalize pot.  And when they do, I’ll be the first in line.  Drugs and alcohol for underage kids is a no-no imho.  I don’t think they have the mental capacity to do it responsibly nor should they be allowed.  If however, you are an adult, I think if it’s legal, and you can do it responsibly, knock your socks off.

Writing Challenge ~ Day 8: Worry

Day 8.  Something you’re currently worrying about.

My daughter is in the Marines and I worry about her a lot.  She is currently deployed overseas and pretty soon our communication will be very limited.  I wish she were done with the Marines already and home for good.  I miss her and love her every day.

 

Here’s the list I’m working off of if you care to join in on the writing challenge:

Writing Challenge ~ Day 7: Cheating

Day 7.  Your opinion on cheating on people.

OH!  It disgusts me to no end.  WHY?  Why for the Love of God would anyone do this to another person?  It’s the ultimate betrayal and act of selfishness.  It makes me sick to my stomach.  Why?  Because they want their cake and they want to eat it too?

If you are in a relationship, and you cannot be a REAL man/woman and tell your partner that you are not happy – then you are a pussy.  You are an even bigger pussy if you go out and cheat.  Disgusting.  Bringing home WHO KNOWS what kind of diseases and spreading them around to your life partner.  That’s just the physical hurt; the emotional hurt is beyond repair.  I don’t believe anyone can get past cheating, ever completely forgive or ever trust the same again.  That’s my one deal breaker, … cheating.

Writing Challenge ~ Day 6: Me♥You

Day 6.  The person you like and why you like them?

A person that I ♥like♥ is my husband.  I like him because he knows me like he knows the back of his hand.  He makes me laugh on a daily basis.  Even when I’m down (down, down) he can make me laugh at myself or at whatever he’s saying and pull my attention away briefly – he always reassures me that everything is going to be alright.  He is always right (99.9% of the time) when it comes to me ~ and that kinda pisses me off but it’s true.  Nobody “gets me” the way he does.

Writing Challenge ~ Day 5: Irritation(s)

Day 5.  5 things that irritate you about the opposite sex/same sex:

I am female, what irritates me about females:

  1.  When they are catty and backstabbing for no apparent reason, other than just to be a bitch.
  2. When they knock other women down to make themselves feel better.
  3. When they turbo load on the perfume.
  4. OMG, the DRAMA!  Get over yourself!
  5. When a man is in the room and they start to fall all over themselves for his attention; it’s obvious and you look desperate.

What irritates me about males:

  1.  When they stare creepily; almost like they want to eat you alive.
  2. .
  3. .
  4. .
  5. .

As you can see, not much bothers me about the male version.  I usually get along better with the guys for obvious reasons me thinks.

Learning to Let Go

Last night I received a nasty text from my oldest sister.  Totally uncalled for and completely rude (for lack of a better word).  I could sit here and be upset but that would just be a waste of my precious energy.  I love old sayings because they are so true.  “Consider the source” and “With age comes wisdom” and so many more the like.

I couldn’t even be upset if I tried.  You see, my sister is just a sad case and I believe those that are down and out, mean and hurtful are those that need love the most.  I didn’t even respond to her text message because I believe she just wants the attention and for me to blow it up bigger than she already made it.  I won’t give her the satisfaction.

Truth is, she stuck her nose in where it didn’t belong.  That’s when those old sayings come in handy.  5 years ago I would have immediately reacted to her rudeness and cruelty.  But with age, comes wisdom (yassss, it’s true).  I can see now that reacting would be the worst possible scenario for me.  It would only serve to hurt her and make things worse.  Plus, I need to “consider the source”.   I wish I could say I was proud of my oldest sister but I am not.  So, why do I care what she thinks of me and what she has to say to me?  Truth is, I don’t and I’m glad I don’t.

Therefore, I will not respond.  My husband told me to text her back, “Fuck off” but you know what?  That would only hurt my mom the most, and I just don’t have the heart to do that.  She really had it coming, but I’ll hand this one over to God.

Writing Challenge ~ Day 3: Attraction

Day 3.  What kind of person attracts you?

The kind of person that attracts me is one that is “down to earth”.  One with a warm smile and easy-going.  One that I can relate to on a mental level, one that is funny; has a rich sense of humor.  One that is honest, open, and shares their life freely.  One that doesn’t take life too seriously, is ready to get down and get stupid with me.  LOL.  A hugger, I love me a hugger.  Nothing like a nice big bear hug to show someone what you are made of.

Writing Challenge ~ Day 2: Change?

Day 2.  How have you changed in the past two years?

Physically I have lost 30+ lbs by cutting back on my food intake and also by implementing Whole30 into my lifestyle.  Mentally and emotionally I have grown by leaps and bounds.  I had a nervous break down a few years ago and wound up hospitalized for clinical depression and acute anxiety.  I was at my all time low.  I don’t know how but by the Grace of God I was spared, not only that but flourished.  It was as if all the good advice I had received over the years; whether it be from a therapist, psychiatrist, friend, or family member – – – had all just “clicked” at once and set inside me.  I grew from there.

I now focus on what is important in life, the main deal ~ my family.  Everything else takes a back seat.  I no longer search for approval from ANYONE.  Nobody, nada, zero, zilch.  I come from a rich strong core and navigate my way from there.  I accept myself for who I am; flaws and all.  I embrace my flaws and try to work on them, I’m constantly growing and evolving.  I accept that I have depression, anxiety, PTSD, and OCD but they do NOT define me.  I am a constant work in progress and have made major tracks in the past two years.  I don’t see myself ever going back to that dark place where I once was.  I think that was my low point.

THIS is the list that I’m working off of, if you wish to join in ~ please do!
