Someone once said… “Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.”

Leap of faith and the Courage to Fly

empty-roomHave you ever felt like you were stuck in one place- just like a fly trapped on a piece of flypaper? A time when you could see your surroundings and knew where you wanted to go but just couldn’t get there. Have you ever just taken that leap of faith no matter what it cost, even if it meant ripping yourself free of the sticky paper and losing a wing or tiny piece of yourself? Did you do it? Was it worth it?

It has been one year since I did just that. I was working in a place that was killing me. It wasn’t the job so much as the people. They were life suckers- you know the kind – hate themselves therefore can’t stand to see anyone else happy. The place was toxic and I was becoming a person that I didn’t recognize.  So…. I closed my eyes, cut the cord and then took a giant leap. It was so painful and really scary but it has been an amazing year. No, I am not technically, gainfully employed,yet, and I haven’t made any huge strides. But I think I know myself a little better and I’ve explored life so much more. The passing of a year has made me reflect on what I really want. It has forced a question of reality; what can I achieve? I would like to say if you believe it -you can achieve it. Hmmm is that really true? I guess I have to say that I’m still a work in progress but I have no regrets.

Share with me a leap that you took or would like to take. Tell me what your inspiration was or is. Where did you get your courage? We have to be brave in every tiny step or giant leap we take. Have faith in the universe and show us brave spirit. I’m looking for a little boost of inspiration in your stories to get me over that one year hump. Inspire me with your dreams. I am daring you to unleash your passion. Tell me what your journey felt like- Inspire me.

Email Stalkers

Junie’s turn on the sofa.

Okay time for a little  rant about what’s happening in my life. Don’t roll your eyes it might be interesting- so listen up. There are weird people hanging out in my email again. I guess you might call them email stalkers. Some want to comment on how I look while others tell me they are visiting a certain city and in need of female companionship.  eeehhhhhw!

Well here goes my rant…. I don’t care if you like or don’t like the way I look-I’m not sending pictures!!!  sicko!!  I am not a madame or a call girl, never have been and never will be!!!   are you high?  I don’t want to see your pictures- no matter what you look like!!!  again eeehhhhw!

Okay now with that said…. I will admit I am a bit of a free spirit and a crazy girl but that doesn’t equal a psycho chic or desperate babe. This is an unusual blog (yes) but I like things outside the box- not strange- just a little outside the box.

So if you are weird, creepy, very strange or looking for a hooker for the night…Stay out of my email! If on the other hand, you have a confession to make, a secret to share, or a rant that you would like me to post… Then you are welcome! You can even stop by to say hi or leave me feedback on what you like or don’t like about the blog but no stalkers please!

Can you tell I have fully recovered and I’m back to my  feisty old self? Now if I could just get my writing grove back and get this damn book finished… I would be a happy, free spirited, crazy girl, living  just outside the box.  I think I’m finnished rambling… Thanks for listening. Love you all…well most of you 😉

Puppy Love

Please welcome Furloughed to the sofa.

dognapper

I just stole a dog tonight. I found him wandering around on the street on my way back from work. After some sweet talking I was able to get him to come near me. I asked around and found out that his owner had a stroke and the dog is being watched by his friend. I drove to his friend house to give the dog back to find out they’re crackheads. His gf thanked me and said she will make sure the dog doesn’t get out anymore by tightening up his collar. I asked around some more and found out that this dog had been tied outside for more than a few weeks now with very little food and water. I drove home to get on with my life but for some reason I cannot get him out of my head. So after dinner, I drove back and stole the dog. I will find a good home for him…….

Junie: Good for you and good for the poor dog. I hope you find the perfect home or keep him until the owner is well enough to take him back.
