Room For Us All

The internet and the world are so blehhhhh right now.  So much sadness and angst, wrongness and injustice, chaos and confusion.  I am sick, like many of you are too, I'm sure.  What can we do?  Is there one correct means to take?  Of Course!!!....Not.  Life ain't that easy, my peaches.

It's times like this I lean on simpler things like:
-loving a little harder to my peoples including but not limited to extra daily bear hugs from my bub
-getting down on their level and hugging my pups more often
-taking in suns setting and moons rising with more appreciation
-baking banana squash bread in the middle of the afternoon
-praying more throughout the day, talking to God out loud, looking for direction this way
-wearing two neon colored flowers in my hair at a time
-smiling at random strangers and saying hello as we pass by
-cucumber water. Could be the stress of our world, could be the 100 degree temps.  Utterly refreshing
-social media step-aways. Now, I work in social media but I absolutely believe in digital detoxing
-reading a fun, light summertime based fiction book. I mean, is there anything better than that syncing of story and season?

I'm not an airhead and I don't aim to make light by listing out my Martha Stewart-esque approach to not stressing in this hurting world.  I have such high hopes and like I said before, sometimes when things get complicated, it's important to get back to simple.

I love this photo.  The thought occurred to me that like all these beauties, there's room for all of us too.  Different and colorful, spread out everywhere, we all can belong.  This country has to recognize this.  A little give and take and we can correct this.  We have to.

Love one another and let's all try to not lose kindness or manners in these terrifying times.

Let's meet again,
M

My dear, If at first you don't succeed, throw on another accessory & try, try again

Off to try, try again!

A man is not very tired. He is exhausted

I know. This is days after the initial blow of learning that this wonderful human being's life ended. What in the world. Talk about a cherished existence. The man my parents still rave about because of his stand up comedy, the man who forever changed the way I say "Hellloooooo" in an older British woman's voice, this great giant. How sad. I feel for the fact that Robin hit a level from which he could not rise. Depression, anxiety, stress are awful beasts.

I do not believe in the mentality, that someone who takes their life is selfish. Sure, it's not the kindest thing to leave behind for loved ones to cope with, but if something has it's grasp on a person, well, choices are made. It is devastating that there is still so much stigma for diseases like depression and anxiety. What?! Get the hell out of here with that mess. I would not wish it upon the biggest naysayer even to prove a point. So, to that, I say screw the assholes saying derogatory …

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
