I wonder If anyone has actually tried to eat spaghetti with syrup and candy on it after the movie Elf came out or what would it be like if we never discovered the earth was round…and what the hell would any of us really do with out Google.
What is it about Walmart and rainy days that reminds me that each day I am simply just trying to tolerate the human race one more day just to get by? And whats even worse is that they have to tolerate me. From people pushing their carts down the parking lot aisles… in the freaking middle of it with their wide asses and buggies, going as slowly as possible, to the people in the self check outs with a cart full of crap. A wise man in AA says that “we need to come from a place of non-judgment”. Which normally I tend to agree with his sentiments, but today I can seem to conjure up enough humility to muster the non judgment. Judgment seems to be all that is in my mind. My counselor always says “what would love do?” Which I also LOVE this statement… because what would it do? would it act gracious while secretly cursing the individuals in its inner most deepest thoughts? Or would it simply just be gracious. The real problem here is ME. I have a case of the fuckits. My give a damn is broken today. I don’t care what love would do…. Except giving that homeless man on the corner standing in the rain ..un righteously I might add.. $10 bucks…..and then thinking why can’t any of these other ass holes see he’s suffering? and then realizing im not unrighteous at all. I’m the total opposite. AND then thinking… you know… I just blew $50 bucks and shit to organize my shit… what kind of logic is that… who has it better off… me who has so much crap I have to buy more crap just to organize it… or the homeless guy who doesn’t have anything… he doesn’t even have to see a counselor to learn how to deal with the human race because to just simply make it through another day alive in this world is a blessing. And maybe… that’s what we all are really doing. And I do need to come from a place of love and tolerance… because I am blessed to be here, another day.. making it through it.
….Because I can’t come up with anything better to blog about and well because they are interesting questions. Kind of. So I shall give you the answers from the deep depths of my soul… little by little (because all at once might just be to much for you to handle).
Question One: Are you doing what you truly want to do?
(I’d like to make a brief excerpt that was not in my original journal entry.. and that is that I am currently eating pizza rolls, with as much ranch as I want, and eating mango and pineapple pieces, with a monster to wash it down with… for dinner. Because I CAN … and because my husband is out of town and I didn’t actually have to “cook,” so Yes, I am doing what I want to do.)
OK Back to the original journal answer from 5/25/15
Right now? At this very moment? or in the grand scheme of things? I’d have to say for right now; yes. I’m sitting in bed writing about and contemplating a seemingly pointless question which could actually lead to profound knowledge…findings. In the grand scheme of things? I don’t know… I know I want to dance and I’m not, I want to do yoga and I’m no, I wan to ride my bike more, and I’m not… but as far as REALLY doing…like career/big girl life…? I HAVE NO IDEA what is I truly want to do! I’m still working on pruning myself and discovering who I am in this new “recovering” world. So, yes?… I am doing what I want.. I’m discovering who I AM. =)
Conclusion from reading this after almost a month has gone by… I’m a little closer to knowing what I want to do in life, as far as a “big girl” job, and as far as the other junk, like dancing and riding my bike, yeah well i’m still lazy… but hey its progress not perfection. AND I Know i’m the only one to blame and who can fix it =)
My dad has recently gotten into writing poetry and he wrote this and gave it to me the other day. I would not have appreciated this as much a few years ago or understood it like I do now, but I got to get a glimpse of how my alcoholism wasn’t JUST ABOUT ME!.. and this poem confirms it… I am blessed with a good family that TRIES.. atleast tries, to understand my journey, which is more then one could ask for and more than may get.
Sorry its Blurry. =)
I AM/ WAS soo excited!?!?!…. I finally talked my husband into letting me get my own computer, so I could do super important things, like listen to music, and try to blog (I say try because I’m still so new at this and kinda clueless to what I am doing) and shit…. ANYWAYS… I got a ASUS touchscreen/laptop, just a little 10inch screen, nothing fancy, simple, for me, the simple minded (when it comes to technology).. from some nerdy dude off of craigslist. I was scared, I took my gun when we met up… not really because I barely know how to use it.
SO here I AM… sitting with this thing, all excited to use it… and my husband walks by and starts poking his fingers allllll over the screen, zooming it in and out, clicking on things I don’t want it to, porno of girls and popcorn kernels coming up (or out huhuh) …(also that isn’t true.. I heard it from a comedian….)… I should mention here my husband is 14… not really, but he acts like a 14 year old little boy when it comes to pestering me because he grew up with 4 brothers and1 sister… and I only had one older sister and have a pretty short fuse and can go from irritated to rage in like .03 seconds…. and he finds it hysterical, until he gets hurt of course, and them I AM taking things to far again, even though I warn him to stop.
Morale of the story… don’t get a touch screen computer when you are Married to a 14 year old man who wears his ninja turtle shirt more than anything and he’s actually 28.
In AA they would tell me “acceptance is the answer to all of my problems today…” which generally I’m inclined to agree…. but right now … which we’re suppose to live in the “now”… I just want to Bitch Slap him.
I don’t ever take anything at face value. I always think there’s a deeper meaning to life, to love, to relationships, to the way the clouds move through the sky and form messages for you & to the way the stars wink at you when you need them the most. To the way cardinals show up to your friend when she needs encouragement and a sign, or your favorite radio song comes on when you feel like your loosing your mind. To the way my dog lies her head on my lap and looks up at me when I’m having a hard time, as if to say she gets it..to angels disguised as cops to crying mothers in the emergency room. This world is filled with messages if you look for them, or better yet if you stop looking and let them come to you.
