after the unfair treatment i received from a now former employer last sunday, that i am now doing a self challenge. no unkind words about anyone. i am so disappointed in how everything unfolded at solstice, that i truly feel the need to try even harder to be kind and good to all those around me. having seen the devastating effects of the opposite on myself…
i feel like in general i do a great job at being supportive and kind. at staying positive no matter what. but even i find myself making judgement’s from time to time that aren’t mine to make. or forming opinions in my head that weren’t asked for to begin with.
so summertime! here’s to being an even better person. if everyone else wants to slack off. then i will try to make up for them as best as i can.
So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion;respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.
Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.
When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself. Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision.
When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.
it is insanely rare i wake up on the wrong side on the bed. perhaps the fact that the alarm in our guest bedroom started to blare super early. even though i’d unplugged it when it did it yesterday morning…. i hadn’t realized it had back up batteries. (damn it) however, this morning i woke up on the wrong side of the bed. and proceeded to be an awful person for approximately twenty straight minutes. until i forced myself into the shower. because our shower is a little hard to be upset in considering the whole time i’m in there i think. “oh wow this shampoo smells delightful. they did such a good job with the stonework in here. man our showerhead is the bomb.com.” and i managed to pull it together. but that first twenty minutes was rough people.
holy hump day!
thank goodness for trader joe’s salmon. i’ll be dishing that up with lemon butter and capers for dinner. things are looking up :)
Sitting on the sofa and attempting to motivate myself to clean our entire house when the doorbell rings and our merry maids walk in. Sometimes living with lazy boys has its perks. They would rather pay these adorable women than clean up themselves and on a rainy day like today! High five boys :)
was spent in greensboro celebrating the love of my friend Laura and her new husband Scott! so much fun! the ceremony was in her sister Amanda’s backyard, which was a gorgeous southern style home. tons of ivy, magnolia’s, and hydrangeas. it was incredible. followed by a ridiculously fun night at revolution mills for the reception!
congrats you two! and thanks for letting us be part of your big day :)
It’s actually a good thing that the zombie apocalypse starts in Florida because then the zombies only have one way to go and that’s straight up into trigger happy redneck territory. I give it two weeks before monster trucks and mullets save us.
uh i’m in the “trigger redneck territory.”
I love it that the OP is like yessss I’m safe because of rednecks. That makes my heart smile.
