Day 1302 A BUT makes you a BUTT

8 09 2016

I miss writing so often but when the day ends there is not enough time or energy. I’m trying to make it a point to get back and blog. my mind needs the writers release. Even if nobody reads it, I still need it if that makes sense.

I have always defended myself even when it wasn’t necessary. I still do now because I still forget that I am worthy and I’m enough. That if I’m wrong I’m not that little boy who didn’t have his dad to guide my way so I had to be right or I was going to always make mistakes. I like to be right and who doesn’t but that’s an excuse. We were made not to be perfect but I keep thinking i have to always be perfect and if not I’ll argue with you until I am. The past 6 months have been filled with as many changes in my life than any other time. I’m trying to always be better but!!!! That word gets me always because I might agree with you but I need you to hear my side so you know that I’m okay. So Im still insecure, frightened, unsure, changing ball of a mess. I listen to God and then I stop listening and when I stop listening welcome to Tyler Wood and his interchanging “Buts”

Have you ever went and listened to yourself when you try to defend yourself. It sounds so stupid and when you’re having a good day you step back and say what in the hell did I do that for. What did it matter if I was right or wrong. I didn’t hear the other person, I probably hurt them and I didn’t listen to anything they said. All because Im so insecure, feel unloved, unattached from anyone or anything that I just need to be heard.

I was in an argument with my fiance and we were both wrong but God forbid if I actually shut up and not have to be the heavyweight champion of arguing. So I got the title that night and I hurt her feelings and made her feel that what she had to say wasn’t important. As soon as I said But i should have stopped because the moment I kept going I became a BUTT!

Im always a work in progress like we all are but if I have to  be the champion of But I will become the champion of the BUTTS too and I really don’t need another crappy crown.

We don’t always have to be right even when we are right. The BUT stops here. I hope it can stop with you too!





Day 956 You have 48 hours

9 09 2015

Having my babies back is always so much fun. Now they are getting older its harder especially with a teenager daughter who is just a tad hormonal.  Do you every stop and listen to your kids and realize how smart they are. I feel dumb sometimes because I know at their age if I was reading Dr Seuss books fluently I thought I was a champion. My kids not only have book smarts but Im definitely  teaching them common sense. When I hear them apply the common sense I don’t worry because they get it. Stop and listen to your kids they are really smart and a lot of that comes from your’re great parent. Give yourself some credit.

About 8 years ago I was sitting at a networking meeting and the speaker A great man named Bryan Dodge said if you don’t hear anything else here this: You have 48 hours to do whatever it is that you want to do or you wont do it. He started naming off a list of things, calling someone who has been on your mind, sending an email, mailing a letter, buying a certain book, telling someone your feelings, etc.. I used to be a giant a-hole and someone would say you can’t do that so I would spend a lot of time trying to prove someone wrong just so I could be right. Not because it mattered. So for two weeks I proved him wrong. I wrote down what I was going to do and did. BTW that is a great way to get a to do list done. So then I started slacking writing my list and after 48 hours I forgot not only my list but what was supposed to be on there. Or you tell your kids Im going to take you here or there. You forget to buy tickets then you have egg on your face with your kids. Or Im going to go see XYZ or Im going to call them. You don’t and then there not here anymore. Today it was brought to me again by a friend through text. You only got 48 hours Tyler what are you waiting on.

I challenge you to test it. See what you don’t do or you do when you make it a priority to get it done in 48 hours.
