To Me

FIGHT

to love others more

FIGHT

to make the smart choices instead of the easy ones

FIGHT

to not lose faith in the midst of faithlessness

FIGHT

to not become what once was

FIGHT

to only speak life

FIGHT

for dreams so big they have to be fought for

FIGHT

to become a better person every day

FIGHT

the desire to be comfortable

FIGHT

the voices that say failure is the habit

FIGHT

to pick up when

FIGHT

has become something undone

FIGHT

because not fighting has made you who you have become

Blogging that Means Something

I have chosen not to blog since September. It’s not that Ididn’t want to update people on my life. I just didn’t feel like taking away your time unless it was something worth while. Granted, there are many things that have happened in the last several months that may have helped you or just given you some encouragement. But the past is gone, and I am blogging again.

My heart is completely devasted by the fact that over 12,000,000 people are being traficked right now. Every thrity seconds someone new goes into sex slavery. Can your brain wrap around that? I know mine can’t. But my heart is broken. And what are we doing besides getting emotional gratification that we felt bad for a few moments.

Enough is enough. How many times have we looked at history and asked in disgust:

WHY DIDN”T ANYBODY DO ANYTHING!?

This is OUR world on OUR watch. WHAT IF IT WERE YOU! WHAT IF IT WERE YOUR KID! Would you say I hope people feel bad for me or would you cry that no one cares that everynight someone will pay to have sex with you or you will have no choice but to give them oral sex.

This is our world on our watch, and we will be held responsible for what we didn’t do. Please look into this! I am begging you. Let’s get outside our our little worlds and RESCUE someone who can’t call thier world theirs!

Power is walking away from a desire to protect a love.

Love the simple lyrics! I guess it really isn’t that complicated.

It’s hard to say No.

Sunday was pretty awesome. I went to a beautiful lake in Evergreen with one of my favorite people! It was a beautiful drive complete with a stop for ice cream! Nancy always gives me amazing advice, but she told me something that really bothered me. I mean…like it REALLY bothered me. “If you can’t say no, your yes means nothing.”

Why is it that one little phrase can rock your world? I never thought of it that way. But this week it hasn’t left my mind. How true is that statement! In my situation, I have realized by me not saying no, the value of my yes over time has grown smaller and it has become harder to say no.

It really helped me stay strong in my convictions about something I am really struggling with. Should I have closed that door? It was hard, but saying no to something I want now just means I am putting value on the time when I am supposed to open it back up. Think of your situation. Maybe it means taking on too many shifts at work so people just expect it. Or maybe it has to do with a situation, not a literal yes or no. Are you easy to “fall in love”…so when you find the right one, it doesn’t hold that special place? Think about it. Is there something in your life you haven’t said no to that maybe you should have?

People are Gross! This is fishy!

Apparently, fish are being used for more than just eating these days. I saw an article about a spa in West Virginia. Get this!…Tiny carp that eat away dead skin for a “fishy” pedicure. Eww! Think about it. These fish are feasting off the flesh on your toes. I laughed at first, but then the thought of these carp eating at some crusty old ladies feet, then my turn. I wonder if they use different fish for each client. And if so, what do they do wiht all the other ones…throw them back into the lake for us to catch later…and EAT! Talk about the circle of life! But if you want the legit story, http://www.digitaljournal.com/article/257752

My 6 year old hero!

 CALVIN AND HOBBES! In my opinion, we don’t devote nearly enough scientific research to finding a cure for jerks. **

Reality continues to ruin my life.**

Calvin : You can’t just turn on creativity like a faucet. You have to be in the right mood. Hobbes : What mood is that? Calvin : Lastminute panic**

 That’s the difference between me and the rest of the world! Happiness isn’t good enough for me! I demand euphoria! **

You know, Hobbes, some days even my lucky rocketship underpants don’t help.**

 This one’s tricky. You have to use imaginary numbers, like eleventeen …**

Calvin: I’m a genius, but I’m a misunderstood genius. Hobbes: What’s misunderstood about you? Calvin: Nobody thinks I’m a genius**

 “I’m a simple man, Hobbes.” “You?? Yesterday you wanted a nuclear powered car that could turn into a jet with laserguided heatseeking missiles!” “I’m a simple man with complex tastes.

** “See Any UFOs?” “Not yet.” “Well, keep your eyes open, they’re bound to land here sometime.” “What will we do when they come?” “See if we can sell mom and dad into slavery for a star cruiser”

** “Any monsters under my bed tonight?” “Nope.” “No.” “UhUh.” “Well there *better* not be, I’d hate to have to torch one with my flamethrower!” “You have a flamethrower?” “They lie. I lie.

** ON GIRLS:

“Do you like being a girl?” “Its gotta be better than the alternative.” “Whats it like? Is it like being a bug?” “Like a WHAT?” “I imagine bugs and girls have a dim perception that nature played a crual trick on them, but they lack the intelligence to really comprehend the magnitude of it.

** I’m looking for something that can deliver a 50pound payload of snow on a small feminine target. Can you suggest something? Hello…?

** Girls are like slugsthey probably serve some purpose, but it’s hard to imagine what.
