Day 1863 Screw your 3 step process

15 07 2018

Happy Sunday beautiful people. The great thing about Texas this time of year is when you grill you don’t have to light a fire just sit the food on the grill and the heat does the magic. Its 105 today! Im to old for this crap but hey my tan is coming along nicely. So let’s get to it

The one thing I believe that our world is lacking in is perseverance. What is perseverance .persistence in doing something despite difficulty or delay. We live in a microwave society not a crock pot society. We put our life in for 30 seconds and at 25 seconds were like my God why is this taking so long. rather than sitting it simmer for 8 hours and tada we have a meal.

When life gets to hard people just quit.  If you want hope or anything worth something is going to have to hurt just a little at least. It  takes time, lack of understanding, suffering. Its watching the crock pot and it doesn’t even look like in the first 2 hours anything is happening. The best things in my life I have waited on. Now in the midst of waiting (I’m very impatient) i talked so much crap, got angry, cried and then boom. Like after my divorce I was like okay i thought I was supposed to be feeling better already. I mean I followed this 3 step process to getting better. Well hello there is no 3- STEP PROCESS FOR LIFE. What I did in my process is 99% going to work for you because you are not me and Im not you, I can’t help you understand what i felt in my process because it was mine not yours. So no matter what my intentions were there is no process. What I do know is that there was perseverance and when the after divorce light came on I was like I get it. If I would have tried to microwave my life I would have been divorced again because honestly my demons were still running rampant and I didn’t know it.

You every heard joy come sin the morning but in the small print it says this crap hurt or hurts really bad. Well Im in a stage of life where I put my life in a microwave, I’ve had to  pull it out of the microwave and put it in the crock-pot turn, it on and leave it. This has been very painful but I remembered there is no 3 step process, and it will hurt, but the outcome will be exactly what it should be.
Stop looking for easy. Learn to be perservant and not quit. the best things in life are earned through hurt, pain, being uncomfortable but the joy does come in the morning and I’m living proof of that.

Love you and until my hands are ready to type again.

Day 375 Draw Circles not lines

21 01 2014

I have never thought much about giving up soft drinks but I read an article on what you can do with them and I also tried to clean my potty with it and it worked so here to giving it up. If it can do that to my potty my stomach says why have you done this to me. Denton Rugby lost their first game this weekend. We weren’t bad but not good either. It sucks to lose but he get to play the same team and a few weeks and we will avenge our loss. I also have come to the conclusion after 33 years of contact sports that its time to retire after this year. I love Rugby and anything where I can hit something but its time to do beanbag toss or something easy maybe from a chair.

If you can’t attend church and need an online church http://www.crosstimberschurch.org is a great place to go. I always feel the message is for me and I leave with something I truly needed to hear. We all need a place and persons to belong. Its is in our DNA to belong to someone, people and places. The example was the Old Show Cheers. Where everyone knows your name and your always glad you came. I have had that a few times in my life and I miss it so much. You can’t just generate it you have to take time and nourish it and  the people you want close. Since my divorce I have no place and my people are different. One is married and the other is far away so I feel lost and many times I belong nowhere except in my apartment. As we are conditioned or have learned that we draw lines instead of circles around people. We always start that if your going to be my (friend, support, love, or just someone I can talk to you can’t cross this line). We won’t circle around them because they may not be our type, our color, they may push our limits, we may fear them, or another laundry list of reasons! The church, our family and especially us miss out on so many good people and places to belong because we draw a circle around them and won’t allow them in so they are just left with a line to cross.

A great quote from church was: Making space for someone you don’t have to make space for is what we are striving for.  My friend Krys asked me today what if the need to belong is never fulfilled? I thought for a bit and my only response was I try not to think of never. If I/we don’t step outside of the circle and pull people into our circle we will never belong. We have to get uncomfortable and nobody likes that. If God created our DNA to belong then how can we ever be who we were designed to be without belonging. We can’t,we won’t, and life is too short to sit back and not get what we are chosen to have.
