Just things we have to learn as we make our way through life.

The short bus for superheroes!


Sometimes in life we get lost. We become too far gone and caught up in saving everyone but ourselves. We are strong, reliable vehicles for everyone except us. We make the impossible possible and the overwhelming obstacle a walk in the park for the ones we love. How about loving yourself. So much so that you realize that your super powers can only be activated for someone in need and not for your own hopes, dreams, and desires. I am writing this to expose your kryptonite. Its called co-dependency. You don’t know where you end and they begin. Sitting their idly waiting patiently for them to call so you can feel that rush you get when you know it was ‘all because of you’. YOU ARE the ultimate sacrificer giving up all in THE NAME of SOME PRAISE. YOU ARE their strength, you know the one everyone counts on to be THAT ROCK so they can get some more rest. You struggle day-to-day trying to figure out who will be your next ‘project’ to work on. Your advice is ALWAYS THE BEST you are what they call THE PROBLEM SOLVER. Everyone wants you to do everything because you do it like NOONE ELSE CAN DO IT. My question to you is who are you without them? Reclaim your purpose superhero.YOU allow yourself to be HINDERed because you thrive off of others happiness AND OPPRESS the fact that YOU’RE NOT HAPPY at all. In fact, with this lifestyle you’ll be the first to go. Unlike a comic you are not immortal superhero. You have a heart, brain, hunger and pains, and you’re getting older as we SPEAK superhero. I don’t know any superhero who is their OWN nemesis constantly FIGHTing themselves until one day you’ll LOOK UP and your life with be over and never even lived. You only GET one LIFE superhero. I think today would be a good day to DIE SUPERHERO AND GET REAL!

Rain, Rain, Go Away?


 PLEASE!!! Quit trying to rain on my parade. I get so fed up with all the negativity. All this negative energy literally sucks the life out of me! You’re like a leech. You latch on to all the beauty I am displaying with my rays of hope and sunshine smile, that’s so blinged out it would take the Rap world by storm. The time is at hand for you to come over and prove me wrong and make me look… not so bright. You hastily make your way over with your weary walk wielding your umbrella of  despair desperately trying to change the atmosphere. The weather today called for no clouds but now… Now you want to engage me in a lacks-a-daisy conversation to no avail! At first, I try to ignore you by not making eye contact but I notice you not noticing me not noticing you by your commitment to continue on your Pursuit of unHappyness. ” Omg! What a bummer!”, I say to you in a loud voice on the inside of me because I don’t want to be too harsh. Your mouth opens and regurgitates depressing thoughts of failure. The stench makes my ears wanna hurl! Now that you willingly have my attention I suggest that you be more positive. To change your attitude to help change the situation. With down trodden eyebrows and similar head shake you tell me how you have already tried that method and it doesn’t work. In the back of my mind I’m thinking “I have to cancel my subscription to that magazine Changing Times that quotes ‘An optimist is a driver who thinks that empty space by the curb won’t have a fire hydrant beside it’.” After a good 30 minutes of a vicious tongue-lashing and some private thoughts that I say out loud inside of myself I feel like I’ve endured a natural disaster. Internally assaulted by Hurricane Hugo! He is the only one I can think of besides Katrina. (It would be totally inappropriate to use her because I’m a heterosexual female and a hurricane is water so it totally fits my theme). I said all of that to say this. Where there is sunshine there is rain. Never stop planting the seed no matter how exhausting it can be. All seed will not land on fertile ground. However; under the right weather conditions anything is possible. A plant can’t grow without water and plenty of sunshine. Isn’t that awful?!
