Sage, Honesty, and Tears

You’d be amazed at what can be fixed with sage, brutal honesty and a bucket of tears.


Sage smudging- to cleanse and clear the area, and your aura of bad feelings, ill intent, anger, and negativity. Thanks” V” for the large dose this morning. It was needed and helped clear a path for peace. Thank you for caring enough to want a truly good and pure outcome.

Honesty- the hard part. It is easy, to be honest about someone else’s errors but quite a different story when it’s about you. No one wants to be wrong and sadly, no one wants to admit when they are wrong. No one wants to stand up and say “I screwed up.” But we did just that. We both admitted our faults and claimed responsibility for the outcome. We are rare creatures, S. and me.

We hold each other’s value higher than we do most. Only the Hubs sits above her and that’s only cuz he’s taller. LOL I value you, S. I appreciate you and all that you are. Flaws and all. Now if only others would learn from our blunders.

If you want to be as cool as me and my friends- claim your crap. It’s easier to clean up and fix if you step up and claim it. Letting it sit will only make it harder to deal with.

No one is perfect or without flaw. As awesome as I am I am not infallible. I trip over my tongue as much as I trip over my own two dead feet. Which means, my dear, you are flawed too. Claim it, identify it and if need be, fix it.

Be aware of those in your orbit. Not everyone has your best interests at heart. Some people like to start fires just to watch the carnage they create. Some want to see your pain and flaunt it about like the prize fish they bought at the butchers. It’s fake but still painful. Sometimes…people suck.

And tears- wash away the hurt and sour words and bad feelings. Tears are the duct tape of the emotional world. The problem here is most people want to appear tough and stoic and unreadable. Tears make you a crybaby! No, tears make you human and emotional. Tears were provided to the human body for a reason. To cry. To release pent-up emotions and hurt. Tears are a way of releasing the pain you keep locked away in your heart.



For those who meddle with the feelings of others-

You give snakes a bad name.

May Karma kiss you long and hard when you least expect it.

May those you thought were true to you show their real colors when you are in the most need.

May the winds blow hardest in your direction when you don’t have cover from the storm.


And to those who get pulled in and held hostage in other peoples plights- I am sorry.

hardest words

It has been an emotional day, but I have had many of those lately. Time to settle into my head and think things through.

*Like, share, follow…

And as always…

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!!!
