Occassional Rant Post

Every now and then, I just let my thoughts spill over here and today is the day. I’ll try to make a point for all this in the end though! 😌
Life is amazing. I’ve been reading through posts and it dawned on me how we all are so different, yet the same. We experience things and go on in the world living, striving to be notice or to go unnoticed. To be a bleep on the radar or to fly below it, never causing any alarms to sound.

I guess we all want to be normal. As we know our individual normal isn’t the same as society’s normal so quite a few of us won’t fit in. That’s ok though. I didn’t realize how special not fitting in could be until I stop trying to.
I attended a funeral this weekend of a family member and it was sad, but we celebrated her life and all we remember of her afterwards. It brought a distant family together.

I’ll leave you all with a pic or two. My message for the day is love yourself. No matter how different or fucked up you are and don’t ever think you are not special cause you are. You’re alive and that’s proof enough.

Be powerful.


  1. Life is kind of weird huh? This post is interesting. A deeper dive into life as you attended a funeral – the end to our cycle of chaos that we must learn to find peace within.

    I’m very sorry for your loss. I’m here if you need anything.

    These pics are my favorites for of you. You look nice! 💜🖤

    1. Thanks! I’m glad you like the pictures. I don’t wear suits very often and that’s basically the only one I have 😅 I’ll have to do better one of these days.

      Life is indeed a strange thing. It’s really incredible that we exist at all that alone have a purpose for being here. The thought of it can be overwhelming, but I try not to comprehend things my mortal mind isn’t ready for.

      Hope you had a good weekend, Bailey 😄I’m always so happy to hear from you, pretty lady!

      1. You’re so sweet, I’m so glad you’re doing well!…wait…. HOW ARE YOU? Psht how rude of me!! I worry about you. I’m glad you’re around more than you were when times were tough. Every time I sign on, I always have a sweet comment from you that makes me smile, so when you weren’t around much, it was concerning. I think I can “hear” it in your words, though, that you’re doing better. I hope that’s the case!

        😂😂 right? Lately I’ve been trying to gather the courage to write a post about some deep and “uncovered” – yet probably still very obvious – things. I have it all lined out, just have to go back and reread it.

        Speaking of rereading, what’s the status on your book?!

        I hope you’re weekend was also good! 😊🌻 (I never know what day it is. Random fact. 🤷🏻‍♀️😂😆) I’m always happy to hear from you too. If it weren’t for you, I’m not sure where this blog would have gone. Probably forgotten. It’s helped me so much though. And I have memories here that I will now have forever. ❤️❤️

      2. I’m doing better, indeed, Bailey. I’ve come to notice some things about myself as I was self reflecting and rebuilding. One of those things is that I find myself behind the curve because I spent a lot of time chasing love instead of focusing on my dreams and goals like publishing my book for starters. Ha! 😅

        The book is being held up by my own progression. I got it back from an editor and I’m making the required changes before it’s ready for readers. The thing about self publishing is that their is so much ground to be covered to make sure your work is successful. From keywords on Amazon to marketing on Instagram. I still need to purchase isbns (barcodes pretty much) and that’s for every form of release…in other words, I feel it overwhelming at times, but I’m so close!! Haha! I’ll keep you up updated though!

        My weekend was fine. Just kept my boys entertained. Lol. It’s nice to learn more about you so any random fact you share is just fine 😋 I’m happy I contributed to you continuing your blog. It’s definitely a plus for the both of us! I’m not sure how I stumbled across your blog, but sure am happy I did 😊🤗😌

        Have a great week, lovely!!

      3. Oh wow! It seems to be overwhelming!!! I get overwhelmed super easily, so I think my head would be spinning if I were you now!

        Aw ☺️ I’m glad you got to keep your boys 💙💙 Keep that lady (I know…🙄🤐) happy. Don’t get in the court system with them… Dads seem to get the screw there… Dr Phil (YAY!!🥳😂) says to do everything in your power to keep your children away from being controlled by the court. You know, like who they’re with and when. I hope she’s being good to you with them. I can be super mean you know. If you back up or anything. 😂😂🤗😤🤬
        Haha! Anyways… yes it helps when you have someone on your side!

        We’ve been having some pretty yuck weather this week. I’m taking a break from working out to deal with it all. It’s painful 😣. Clouds, humidity and rain (Thank the Lord❤️), mist/fog, tornadoes…. 🤦🏻‍♀️ time off for coping with the painful weather… I think it’s more important to have good form and be able to work my muscles properly, get them strong, rather than feeling like I do now and not being able to have the correct form, causing damage. Sooo i hope I made the right call, I kind of feel guilty for being a total bum today. Brady is so awesome with helping me around the house and he actually takes care of me literally while financially at the same time. I’m not sure what I do, but I guess it’s really right! So I guess I’ll just keep being me! 😂😊

        Keep going on your book!! You won’t regret it!! It sounds like a very heavy and chaotic situation! But yes please keep me updated!!

        That’s crazy… all the things you have to purchase. Wow. Expensive, but all in hopes that you will make your money back!! I believe you will. You’re a wonderful writer. Just keep going. Remember why you started!

        You have a wonderful week too!! I appreciate it! (Oh! Got the Sjögrens page in my blog done – FINALLY! Goodness…. I put that off for a while…that’s been my entire day. Lol)
        Have a good one!!😊😊

      4. The additional comment that i would like to add is….

        I wouldn’t consider you to be behind any curve other than your expectations for focusing on love. I feel for me, love came when I stopped looking for it, stopped expecting it. Do you! Let God work His plan for your life – it’s happening right now! Don’t put your life on hold for something that we, as humans, don’t have control over. Live. Be with your boys. And love every second of your life. Appreciate the beauty in the little things – no matter how small. And soon enough, you’ll realize that right now, you’re exactly where you are supposed to be. 💙💙
