Speak now, or forever ptfd.. that is the question

I waiver between not wanting to speak to anybody ever again sometimes, and wanting to tell my entire life story to anybody that will listen.

I usually try to be tactful, but I’ve discovered that sometimes blunt works better.

I’ve learned that sometimes omitting part of the truth is the best way to be honest without hurting someone.

I’ve finally learned that you can’t be everything to everyone, and you can’t please everyone… so don’t try.  It’s nonsense.

I’ve learned that boundaries are healthy, and should be established, maintained, respected, and protected.  That I need to know mine as well as enforce them.  Nobody who doesn’t respect your boundaries (and is a grown adult that is not your offspring, lol) should be allowed easy access to or granted allowance anywhere near those boundaries again.

I’ve learned that sometimes saying nothing says a lot more than any words you might utter.  😡

Confession number 1. Greetings & Salutations. Red Pill, or Blue? Reality Bites!

Ever wondered if we truly are living in the matrix, as apparently some quantum physicist science brainy types do, in fact, propose, quite honestly ?

So that (as internet memes, and my teen suggest) we’re actually sims, and every time you come into a room and then forget what you were doing it’s because the powers that be (aka God) cancelled your action?

What did I come in here for, again?  Uhmm...  ooh, something shiny!
What did I come in here for, again? Uhmm… ooh, something shiny!

According to what I’ve learned in my little whisper of existence thus far, if this were truly true.. to “wake up” I should be able to….

take a pill,…

♪ Should I stay, or should I go now?...
♪ Should I stay, or should I go now?…

or maybe David Bowie sings really catchy tunes and takes my baby so I have to make my way through a wacky Labyrinth to face him down, repeating with awesome realization, “You have no power over me”,…

or perhaps I literally fall into a rabbit hole to encounter all kinds of crazy adventures,…

AND then possibly click my sparkly heels together three times, repeating earnestly the  phrase, “There’s no place like home” until I wake up.

Alas, nope.


It seems quite real to me, however, that I still have my trusty piles of clutter, bills to pay, kiddos to care for, foods to make, piles of laundry, obstacles to overcome, imperfections to accept, improvements to actualize, demons to keep at bay, good deeds to do, mistakes to make, successes to surprise myself by, people to pamper, jokes to laugh at, and dreams to either realize or change.

Sky’s the limit, right?


Admittedly sometimes #realitybites, but that is why we continue to fight the good fight.  😉

Welcome to my silly confessions, and the strangeness of my brain, kids. Sit back, and enjoy the ride!

#truth.. but haven't we all, I suppose

Have yourself a most pleasant day. 😉
