Life is messy…


…and sometimes the mess isn’t yours to clean up.

The last few days have been a whirlwind of stupid in my world. Shocking, I know. But, we all know shit happens and it just happened to land on me. As a result, I have heard multiple times that I need to fix this situation. I didn’t do it. I feel no guilt for it. I feel justified in my stance.

So, no, I will not clean this up.

I was hurt. I was the one that had words said about them. I made my feelings known (privately) to only receive a response publically. Sadly, this all occurred via text. Both of us are guilty of not calling the other. I can admit when I’m wrong and I was wrong there. But, blasting someone in a group is a breach of trust. I guess the hardest part is getting a glimpse as to how someone truly sees you after years of knowing one another. I felt a rift starting some time ago, but thought we had plenty of time to fix it before it became an issue. I guess we let it go too long.

I am not perfect. Perfection does NOT exist. Flaws are what makes the world a wondrous place. Flaws are what make people interesting, and I am VERY interesting. And…if you don’t like my flaws you have two options: talk to me about them or learn to live with them.

I can’t fix what I don’t know.


Life will go on and I will enjoy the ride.

Find joy. Be joy. Enjoy.

I am...interesting. I am a writer, dreamer, mom, wife, veteran, friend, villain, and the wearer of many hats, but I don't look good in hats- go figure. I LOVE TO WRITE. I want to tell stories. I want to make you laugh, cry, and scare the crap out of you, and make you ask "why the hell did you do that?" I want to make you cheer my characters on or want to shake the crap out of them for things they say and/or do. I want to bring you along for the ride. Ready? Set?...READ!!!
