In The Hands Of Destiny

“Stop searching. Be patient. Trust the timing. Our ONE isn’t someone that we find or carefully pick and choose. That is out of our hands. Our ONE is binded to us and will surface when we DEFINITELY don’t expect it.” #StuffRareSays

Let me first start by saying…
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!!

Today is the day that we honor the Patron Saint Valentino

 While, many of us are playing that romance game that today brings upon us,
there is also something we should all keep in mind.

Love isn’t about ONE DAY a year.

NOR

Making sure you have a special someone for that ONE DAY a year.

It is about all the little things that add up every day of the year that make a relationship what it is. While, it’s great to celebrate a holiday, don’t forget to find ways to express your endearment for your loved ones and/or our own selves more often and without a holiday looming over you.

 Anyhoo,
Enjoy your day fam.

This morning my Lish beat everyone to the punchline with her bright smiles and crack of dawn messages…

 

 

 

 

 

Don’t Be That Guy

“Our personal struggles do not give us the right nor justification to treat others badly. No ONE is responsible for our pain and no ONE should “pay” for the pain we carry inside.” #StuffRareSays

⇓Scroll Down⇓

The thing is:

We all have struggles.
We can either walk around
WITH
Preconceived assumptions about people….
That will impact not only how we treat them
BUT
US as a person.
OR
Walk WITH understanding
THAT
The path we walk…
Bears the fruit…
Within our own actions.

Be mindful with how you treat others.
WE ALL have struggles.
Which means…
NO ONE has time for bullshit.
Taunting….
Fussing…
NOR
Proving themselves.

IT’S…

Obstacles

“The thing about life is: there will always be obstacles in the way of where you want to go. That’s the point. The true test is in our faith, and determination. Not the path. Without obstacles, we wouldn’t know what were made of.” #StuffRareSays

“I awoke to the sound of a dresser drawer shutting.
As I rolled over and realize what time it was, 6:30AM. I was bemused.

“I was running fast.
Dodging as many paint ball bullets as possible.

There was no way out.
I’d managed to back myself into a corner.
I tried to wriggle my way through a small opening. 
IM STUCK…
The other team is gaining on me. “
STUPID OBSTACLE COURSE!!

I must admit, This Holiday vacation has been somewhat exhausting.

With the kiddos home that means there’s a whole lot less ME TIME going on.

Without ME TIME there isn’t a whole lot of BLOG TIME

OMG!!!

I’ve had a few daunting moments in the past few days that almost broke me down spiritually.

Parenthood isn’t easy.
Joyous yes.
Complex indeed.
Especially when we are working parents.

With the kiddos home
AND
In my work space…
Getting things done has been a futile battle.
Jay hasn’t necessarily been one to understand nor respect the value of my workspace in the house.
SO…
When It comes to setting positive examples……

Let’s just say….

Deaf ears.

You might as well forget about it, unless you want to hear a million and one reasons why he’s gonna do it anyway.

And so…..

I miss my quiet time.

“Relationships based on competition CANNOT thrive. These unions require unity to grow.” #StuffRareSays

You must ask yourself on a daily basis,…
“Do I care more about always bing right?
OR
Do I want to be happy?

“Happiness thrives with an open mind.” #StuffRareSays

With sheer determination and gull

I am riding those waves until I’ve conquered the obstacle.

Until then…
I’ll see ya on the next one.
Will it be a poem….
A segment….
Who knows

A Year In Review: Transitions

“As our life passes, our years begin to blend together. It is our remarkable experiences that will stand out.” #StuffRareSays

⇓Scroll down⇓


“The universe has a peculiar sense of humor.” #RoofTop

I suppose we always knew. We just weren’t ready. With such fierce endearment towards one another, it stung deep to be ripped apart. It took the experiences of life to guide us back to each other. The moment all the pieces came together, everything made sense.
An unbreakable bond.
#StuffRareSays

A few weeks had passed and the storm was in its calm. As conversations continued between… Let’s call them… Count Vader.

The holidays were off to a great start.

“It’s been a while since I’ve seen my big bro. Since we lost dad to be exact. I miss my bro. With only five months until he came home, I was getting anxious.”

Remember that call?

That big bro came home five months early. A thanksgiving miracle.

BOY!
That has been a treat.

With Vader and The bro coming back into my life simultaneously, I now had a lot more to things to contemplate and shuffle through.

RE CAP!!!

Blog
kids
Mom life
Job
Community effort
Vader
Bro

Despite it all….
I toggled  it all like a champ.

Only….
The beginning of the end.

“Were just roommates. We’re not even friends.”
He said with hate in his heart.

I’ll probably hold onto that statement from here on out.
It was a defining moment between Jay and I.

AND

On top of that list up there, things were tense between us.

I’d say it got rough.
Mean-spirited things were said.
Things that cannot be taken back.

And so….

We had to establish.

Despite our differences, we chose to have a happy Christmas anyway.

A few days later:

With everything else in line, my Sweet Pea is home for a visit.

Just in time to kick off the New Year!

I’m choosing NOT to have a new year’s resolution this year.

The thing is: we shouldn’t wait for a “New Year, New Me” to evolve ourselves.

To be continued….
