I am.... complexity at its simplest and confusion at its clearest. I make fools of the intelligent and stoop to the level of the fool.
Invariably I push to be understood in a way that may seem abrasive or even silly at times. My heart is in the right place but my brain may not choose to follow...
I am.... ME!

Hindsight is second vision.

I always look back at things and compare them to the things I am currently experiencing. I look for recurring patterns both good and bad and determine which ones to eliminate and which ones to keep.
I seem however to be stuck on one repeating reel that won’t go away. Im the real live version of Chuck from the movie, ” Good Luck Chuck”. To recap Chuck was unlucky in love but always seemed to give…

Resolution.

I am done. I’m through with wondering why this didnt workvand why he didnt care about me or why they can be happy together but im gonna grow old alone. Yeah I wonder about that but I digress. From this moment I vow to just be. Take the time to understand the nuances of life and what it has to offer.  A wondering soul if you will.

I was sharing with one of my best girlfriends the other night that…

I’m grateful for the people in my life that keep me grounded

Rights!

A girlfriend of mine mentioned that she took a male friend around town last night sinc he was visiting and didnt know the area. He was her friend from prep school and they had not seen each other in quite some time. At th end of a fun-filled evening, she drops him at the train station and as he goes to hug her good bye he attempts to kiss her.

She of course backs away casually avoids the kiss and then proceeds to feel awkward.
My question at thix point of the story is : Did you give him any indication at any point in the night that you were open for him to kiss you? To which she answered no.

I’m now wondering if the age of technology and fast-paced instantaneous answers has broken down the walls of personal space, boundaries and common decency? How the hell do you proceed to thjnk that it is ok to just plaster your lips on mine after I did you the favour of showing you around?
Whatevere the hell has happened to thank you? A hand shake, a side hug?
I dont need to meet your groin and its protruding member as a reward for my kindness. That form of generousity I can do without.

Like I was going out of town last week Saturday and was waiting for the bus to fill up so we could leave. The man coming in had the middle seat beside me and proceeded to slap me on my leg as he was sitting as an indicator to say that he wanted me to move over a bit. I was too shockedt even say anything so I looked at him, I mean really looked at him. Mind you I have on sunglasses but he must have felt the contempt emanating from me because he looked in my direction and then I laughed the lzugh of one who knows that idiotd do truly existband then he apologised. I shook my head. How dare he slap me? Am I not paying for the current space I am occupying? The funny thing too is that I wasnt even in his space.

I think this has got out of hand. Men, please do not lay hands on women as you feel the whim or fancy. We do NOT like it. Ask or say something, let her know what your intentions are. My goodness man!

Expectations

I expected this to happen. I just didn’t get a chance to say that. It was interesting while it lasted I suppose but like the predictability of the sun rising in the east I knew he would tire and soon grow annoyed.
I said some things that I probably shouldn’t have revealed though… But I don’t want to take them back. It intrigues me. Will I ever be done? Truly be done with this compulsion, this need…

Let go

For the first time in almost three years, I don’t feel angry or upset at anyone for hurting me or breaking my heart. I’ve come to the conclusion that it is what it is. Its a part of life. People love, they get hurt and either continue to love or decide to give it a break. Me? I’m giving it a proper burial. Danity Kane’s “Damaged” was hilarious on Friday evening because while I related to it I…

Life Lesson #5: Always Keep A Song In Your Heart.

Life Lesson #5: Always Keep A Song In Your Heart.

We are often prone to anger. Especially in cases where we are wronged. We lash out and often we create an even greater mountain of the current mole Hill.

I have learnt that keeping a level head and remaining calm during heated arguments or disruptive situations not only makes the situation diffuse faster but sometimes calms the other person without you having to do a thing.

I have a girlfriend…

He sits worlds away from Me but shares his words in an instant on the fly.
He inspires Me…
I’m a sponge on a rainy day anxious to hear what he had to say..
He inspires Me…
Even though I dont deserve It,He loves Me still. His forgiveness I seek and His strength for my will. He inspires Me…
Each day I awake aiming to please and even when i don’t do as i’m told He never lets go. He constantly reminds…
