Weekly Photo Challenge: Colorful

My flowers bloomed!!!!

To some of you who may not know. I usually have a brown thumb. This year I was bound to grow flowers, and I have made it happen! 🙂 (Lisa you should be proud – also, I don’t know why they turned out kinda blurry, kinda makes me sad)

Everything Happens For A Reason?

Surely everyone has heard “Everything Happens For a Reason”, do you believe that!? I do! I believe that we are put where we are for one reason or another. We may not know “right” now but eventually we might understand the things we go through, it might lead us onto the path we are taking now.
I, for one, have been through a lot. If it wasn’t for my step-dad walking out of my life I wouldn’t be where I am today. I would not have the thoughts that I have today which is: “We are never granted tomorrow. Men can come and go out of your life, the love you had might fade away, even if they loved you for decades, or minutes. Everyone’s mind changes, and every time the mind changes, so does your reason.

If you go through enough heartbreak in your life, you then build a wall around you, and things just don’t surprise you. If someone else who hasn’t been through enough heartbreak they would not know how to act or think about the situation. Other words if you don’t go through the game, how are you going to play the game without the rules? If you don’t know the rules, you don’t know the game.

Another thing, if I wasn’t raped, I would not think about the “what ifs” I would not have the visions I do today, I would not know where to go or who to talk to about the situation if I wasn’t there, if I didn’t go through it. Now since I learned from what happened, and I know the reason behind it and that is “Everything Happens For a Reason” and I know I can make it through anything.
I can now know who I am, where I stand. I, also, know that if something was to happen to my daughter, I would know what to do. I would know to be there for her, to give her tighter hugs, to give her the understanding that I will be by her side no matter how tough it may be or just how proud I am of her.

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
— Marilyn Monroe

Everything does happen for a reason, and you cannot take life for granted. You may not know why you are on the path you are on now, but you will eventually learn something from your past.
Once you pass through obstacles in your life you now have a new perspective on your potential, strength, heart, and inner-self.

So, do you think “Everything Happens For a Reason”?

President, What!?

I personally don’t think I would be good in politics anyways. I don’t care anything about politics, much less being a President, King, or Prime-minister.

I also believe our government is truly messed up anyway! They did that all on their own, without my help, thank gosh! I wouldn’t even know where to begin if I stepped through the door at the “office”.

I, however, do believe that people on Welfare, food stamps, and any other government help should have to take drug tests. I don’t believe in people who have babies, just to get money. I also don’t believe in people totally living off the government if they are perfectly normal!

Another thing is custody battles. I don’t believe that a child should just automatically go to the mom. I believe there should be investigations done to see where the child should be placed during custody. A child should have love, toys, a clean environment, their own space, and it should totally rest on the well-being on the child. It shouldn’t be strictly an one way street! Sometimes the dad in the child’s life, might be best for the child!

As I was looking through some of my friends on Facebook I have noticed that they had problems with the government due to the “No Child Left Behind“. My opinion is that if a child is not where he/she should be during that school year, than why not hold him/her back to get the best out of the child? Why just keep moving the child forward through school, how will this help the child in the future? If they are reading on a 4th grade level, why move them into a 6th grade reading class? How does that make sense? So, again, think what is “best” for the child, not what is “best” for the school!

I wouldn’t know where to begin with government policies, so please don’t bully my post, into what you think or what you think I should think. I am just politely stating my opinions, ha!

Mind Swings

My PostADay from The Daily Post.

I change my mind all the time. It really depends on what I am thinking about. I call it “Mind Swings; They are often like Mood Swings”

This morning I woke up. I thought if I do clothes now, they will be done and this afternoon I can fold them and put them up. I than went to the living room grab my book Black Rose by Nora Roberts. I sat in my bed and read 2 more chapters before getting back out of my bed to fix my little kiddo some breakfast. (Clothes are still sitting in the basket, maybe I will start on them in a bit. Heck it is only 2 loads, ha!)

I am still debating, in my brain of mine, if I need to go outside and lay out, even though I am still a light shade of pink from 2 days ago. I am sure I will probably end up out there at some point this afternoon, when Jade is taking her peaceful nap.

If I never change my mind a million times a day, than something is wrong, lol. I am not kidding, if I don’t change my mind, or topics, or the way I think I am usually in bed with a cold bath cloth on my forehead, blankets up to my chin, and pale as a ghost.

If we never change our mind, than we will all be like robots, just doing things out because we know what to do. If you don’t think of anything “new” than you can’t learn anything “new” about yourself.

So, When was the last time you changed your mind?

Spit Fire than Put me out!

I decided to start the PostADay2011 Challenge in The Daily Post. 😉 I know I can stick through it! Lets get started…

When you get mad, what calms you down? Why? Has this changed as you’ve gotten older?

This really depends on how mad I get. If it is to the point of my emotions going crazy and I am near the point of breaking out in tears than I call one of my best friends. Talking about the situation and seeing it from a different point of view helps me realize that I’m not the only one. It also helps me see rather I was right or wrong about what happened.

Also, If I am just mad over something I shouldn’t be.. Then I just plug up my headphones and jam out to some awesome music. That loud screaming, metal rock, or Rap music, the type of music you sing at the top of lungs and eventually feel better about yourself.

This hasn’t really changed as I have grown older. The only thing that has changed, I guess, is the fact that now I have more of a backbone, and I don’t let people push me as easily.
