Day 807 There will always be a consequence

13 04 2015

Baseball is here! Opening day for the Texas Rangers and almost everyone is hurt already and my son’s team is 3-0.  It’s so cool to watch little kids grow in such a short amount of time. Listening to them encourage and at the same time knock each other around is so cool. I miss those days but at least I get to watch it now. Denton Texas has a lot of great outside venues and a  lot of places you can’t smoke which I enjoy. I will say this I would smell cigarette smoke over the guy or girl who crop dusts people with the most fowl odor. Remember spreading toxic fumes is a crime  or I think if not it should be. This is your friendly PSA Public Service Announcement.

One lesson I’m teaching my babies is that there is a consequence for EVERYTHING we do. If you’re doing good, good will come back in many ways. It may not come back to you today or tomorrow but it will. We don’t do good to get it back but when you need it the most it will come in. It makes God happy when we give from a grateful willing heart.

I want to make sure that I believe God doesn’t punish us. He does give s free will which I think sometimes is punishment enough but no matter what everything in life will have a consequence. Some call it karma, life, or what goes around comes around. The past month  things I did 20’s and yes 30 years ago are coming back around to me now. I know Im forgiven there is no doubt but you don’t do some of the things I did or we all do and think we get off scott free. Many of the fights I participated in my body and especially my hands don’t function the way they should, I had 9 known concussions that were diagnosed and countless others that were not. Since I was trying to show my manhood, be tough etc.. I get foggy ad lost sometimes. Yes it could be old age but it’s also the absolutely beating I took in sports and fighting. Sure I have great stories and lots of memories but they are catching up. The way I treated people not only in just dealing s but sexually have caught up to me. When I have been treated a certain way I’m like I can’t believe they did that to me but then I remember oh yeah you weren’t always the best either.

The alcoholic that drank himself  to sleep every night for 20 years liver is failing. Yes it is and it doesn’t matter what you have changed in your life, what you cleaned up or what has been forgiven it always comes time to pay the piper. The drug user that got high all the time and now they can’t function, the cheater that cheats and now they slept with a good guy and now they have something. I could go on and on. This is my belief that no matter what the decision we made and make will have a consequence. Yes God can stop some it but you can’t do bad things your whole life and get nothing in return. I still never regret my life but I do wish I didn’t hurt some people who I did. If I could the feelings they had towards me I would, or the things my kids heard during their mom  and I’s fights i would.

So the good news is God is a great redeemer!! When your past catches up to your body, your heart and mind don’t be mad or astonished that it’s happening. Use it as a learning tool so we can teach those around us young and old that there is always a consequence good or bad. make sure to tell them the good too. Out of all the rock bottom I can stand in front of 1 or 1000 and tell them through my bad choices there came great from it but man does it hurt not only physically but mentally. The best vase is a shattered vase when glued back together because the sunlight has so many more places to shine through

Why I Refuse to Call My Ex Husband a Narcissist

11 04 2015

Originally posted on Lessons From the End of a Marriage:

If anyone has the right to call her ex a narcissist, it’s me. While on the surface, he was a giving and caring man everyone loved, the man behind the curtain was another story entirely. He crafted false financial documents and insurance forms to support his lies as he bled our accounts dry. He wooed women, eventually wedding one without attending to the detail of obtaining a divorce from me first. He neglected the requirements of the criminal court system, earning a felony warrant. Even the judge in the divorce case asked my ex’s attorney if his client was “psycho.”

And maybe he is. Not a psycho necessarily, but a narcissist.

But, despite all of the evidence, I intentionally choose to not label my ex as a narcissist.

It seems like “narcissist ex” is the gluten-free of the relationship world – all of a sudden, it’s everywhere. But is…

Day 800 Why God Why

6 04 2015

Happy Easter! It was a great day for so many people. The best part is watching families get back together and celebrate. Lucky for me I had my babies we were so busy but had so much fun! My kids wound up with money from Easter egg hunting. I think our generation got screwed because I don’t remember money or tasty candy we had hard-boiled eggs that smelled like farts and candy that was harder than concrete. Also the Easter bunnies back then were creepy. They all had mange or some  disease that hadn’t been discovered.  Anyway sorry for the rant lol.

There is no greater peace for me than getting my babies for my week. On this Easter weekend I’m reminded that Jesus died for my sorry butt that I could have the chance to be a real father not just a guy who helped make babies. It’s never to late to start over no matter what u have done. I’m just thankful I’m here and my babies have an active father.

I was the worst  and still sometimes ask Why God why. Why for my past but today it’s why can’t a hear your voice more clearly, why can’t I find my purpose, why is my career so confusing, why can’t I find love and blah blah blah. I have heard these 3 things by 4 different people, why can’t I follow through, Why  does God always do this to me, why am I destined to fail, why do bad things always happen to me. Well after years of pain stacking research and lots of practice. Why God Why leads to we are just plain dumb and make some really horrible decisions. Do you think that a lot of the decisions we make on a daily basis that God would make them. No but he gave us free will. Thats a whole other blog. We do things based on fear, failure, other people and just our stubbornness to have to be right. Sometimes we do not make stupid decisions  one but two and maybe three times.  If we actually followed what God said and put on our heart we wouldn’t but saying why God why but thank you. I love watch people always say My life is so good and God is good because they got a job, or found true love, or got  a house but take each one of those thing sand they lose it or it’s not showing up and it’s why God why are you doing this to me. Maybe you shouldn’t quit that job or got fired because you mouth wouldn’t be quiet, or that house you blew your money on things you couldn’t afford and can’t pay your house payment. I’m sorry if you don’t pay your bills you lose your house, or I cheated on that person and they want to leave me now. Umm yeah treat people like crap and you get crap back.

Past month I’ve truly struggled with the why’s but now I’m blaming me. I know my heart and mind and I tend to lean on me because I’ve always worked it out. ( That was sarcasm folks) Doesn’t mean I don’t struggle or question God. People have told me you should never question God. If you really believe that because I didn’t voice God didn’t hear it you’re not getting it. Question God and having struggle creates conversation with God and that’s all he wants. Why God why should be I’m sorry Im dumb sometimes and make bad decisions but help me lean on you an don’t me. So rather than blaming God look at you and ask yourself would God make that decision or did I just drop the ball again. The answer your searching for you already know go with God he hasn’t been wrong yet!

Day 793 Why men pee on the toilet seat

30 03 2015

I finally got to get away down to Marble Falls Texas and spend it with one of my closet friends. No matter how long apart we don’t skip a beat. Also the drive was amazing. If you have never been in the Texas Hill Country you need to get down there and take in what we miss everyday.

I mentioned a few blogs back I wanted to show my humor and another side so here you go.  This blog will never solve the problem of men peeing on the toilet seat but Im here to offer some insight.  Just know women that men sit in pee too. At public events for some reason we wait until the last-minute have to run and sit down because it’s creeping out and we don’t check the seat. So there we are sitting in pee and creepers coming out. We do feel your pain  but not as often as you. Okay on to my point:

Why do men pee on the seat? We wait to long. Men are busy and we don’t have time to stop and pee until its make or break moment. Then we get there and the pee is about to go everywhere and we just shoot for the bowl. The bowl becomes the seat, the wall, the tank, the cabinet etc.. I have no idea wait we wait so long but we do then we leave a mess. Im sure you’re asking why don’t you just lift the seat. I promise we were taught to life the lid but not a lot. Life is a competitive for men sometimes I tell myself Im not lifting the lid because Im such a good aim Im only getting it in the bowl. Then we get some on the seat , just give up ,and it just happens more seems to get on the seat. We let ourselves down and lost the battle not the war. So we come back the next time and try again. In the middle of the night which is when most older men have to pee we don’t need the light on we’ve done this before we start pee, and then we start getting pee everywhere. Its late, Im tired and Ill clean it up tomorrow but tomorrow never comes. So the lady comes into the bathroom in the morning probably steps in pee and wakes you and ask you why did you pee on everything. The answer I gave just doesn’t make sense but its all we got. Also I know many men that have done this: you’re at someone elses house you can’t find the light switch and the pee is coming with or without you. So we pee then we panic because we just repainted the walls in dehydration yellow . We panic and grab the closet towel and clean it up. We don’t tell anyone and somebody comes in and uses  the towel but at least cleaned up. Here’s a helpful hint (if you’re at someones house smell the towel before you use it the chance of pee on it is highly likely.

Another reason: Sometimes the feeling you get from holding your pee for hours  feels so good we don’t care where we pee. When you done you get chills because it was so awesome. Its like marking your territory. You look at the pee and say that felt so good you just walk out like a boss!!

Sometimes were drunk. Were just glad we didn’t pee on ourselves but also poop. Its happened and happened to me. Peeing on the seat would be the least of our problems.

All men and boys and taught to shake when your done. So we shake and the remainder is there on the seat.. Our thought process is that it’s so little it will dry onto the seat and you ll never know.

Men if honest we like to perform dance moves and sing when we pee. Sometimes we get excited and then there it is. We got it on the seat, bowl floor, but we were singing in tune and our hips were moving like when we were in high school.

Women always say lift the seat and remember to put it down. Most remember to lift it but then the whole put the seat down thing!! Yeah we don’t do it because we hope you fall in the bowl of water sometimes. We can’t be honest and tell you that but its true.  How is that we lift the seat and pee on it. Well that’s our secret. You have yours we have ours.

Finally I promise you this. if you have a man who opens your car door for you you’ll never  know if he pees on the seat. Just trust me.
