The Fireworks continue past 4th of July. (This one's for my MOM)

As much as I try to understand the stars and planets and their alignment - and the luck and warnings and predictions they may bring....

PEOPLE are ...WOW.

Seriously....I'm learning so much right now
- on so many levels about people and how they react to chaos and madness in their lives
(including within my own)
and how community reacts to madness and chaos and responsibility and structure or lack there of.
Every day since May 25th, I feel as if my world shakes and more shit falls out of the trees and I'm gawking at these revelations with eyes wide shut....PLEASE.

I hear you. All of you - every single one of you tell me the same shit - and I know you don't want to wake up in the morning - I've considered driving into a tree for a bout 2.4 seconds the other day myself (I know, right?)....but C'MON.
We are all better than this - aren't we?
Somewhere deep down inside hope still lights - somewhere and we can all get ourselves out of this boat...can't we?

Life is not a giant episode of LOST is it?

I'd give anything to be in the arms of my beautiful friends right now - I could squeeze you and feel rejunvenated and know that there is a better life - outside of LAKE HARMONY.

Don't get me wrong.  Tonight - tiny miracles happened - really, at one point - I about cried in HOPE. But the tremors, the lip service, the chaos - for fuck sake.....motherfuckers.

Here's what I keep saying to everyone who is bitching about the "stress" in their lives:
WE ARE ALL IN PAIN.
Every stinking last one of us - around some dark corner or deep within our closets - or as in many others (and sort of in my case) - right out in the god - damn open.
We all have our shit. and it's SHIT.
No one should judge (my west coast talking)- I GET IT
But My MOM brought up a great point this past weekend ...
SOME OF US need to RECONSIDER - personal Morals and Values
& the things that super heros are made of (hence my east coast chiming in....)

I don't care what faith you are
I firmly believe that no one can save YOU but you.
You're God/Goddess will be their guiding - but you've got to get off the fucking couch, or out of your bed or the lousy job/situation you have - and put in the labor.  That's it.
Pick your shit up by the bootstraps and get to higher fucking grounds...
Better yet - elevate yourself to a higher level and don't move - be a better example for your family, your community.  FIX YOU. AND SHUT UP ABOUT EVERYONE ELSE.

                                   
                                   AMEN.

  1. Sometimes the "shit" is not caused by anything we did or didn't do. You find that people in your life are not what you thought they were or disappoint you. Sometimes getting yourself up and out of situation also includes cleaning your life of those people - the ones that have hurt you, continue to hurt you for whatever reason.

    And yes, people are WOW. I can't believe the things people are capable of. I say goodbye to bad rubbish and I know that those people will also get what they give. So, you pick yourself up, try not to become too jaded to others around you and keep on going, thankful that at least those that are not good for you are gone before any more harm can be caused or dissappointment brought upon you.

    I've been digging out and will continue to dig out and despite what I'm going through I try to remain positive and moving forward. So can you.

    Great post !

A Suicide Berceuse.

This is for you the broken hearted.This one is for you who can’t get out of bed and for you who may be finding it so damn hard to return the texts, emails and phone calls from anyone. 
This one is dedicated to those who having a hard time showing up because even thinking about showing up is too much energy. 
This one is for you who can’t seem to move on after the loss of a beloved. It’s for the ones whose days gone by are better than the days you’ve been wading through.This is for all of you who can’t catch a break financially, romantically or dream wise and wonder what it's all for.
The world has an immeasurable void in it. Constant pain inflicted from headlines or bylines is palpable. You’re unsure of your footing on our planet because the ground beneath you is unstable even when the sun shines otherwise. 
This one is for you who have contemplated at least once, perhaps even more than once about pressing the eject button on life. It’s here that you are in good company. It's…

4 Reasons Why Badmouthing Others is BAD For YOU.

I was talking today with a friend about the importance of words.  How you use them, positively, negatively any which way.  Words are like weapons.  Once you put them out there, they are pretty much impossible to take back.  Sure you can say you are sorry but it doesn't wipe the blood and guts off the floor from the initial bullet wound.  Forgiveness is key, but let's be mindful of our words from the get.  Dig?

Here's a repurposed blog to go along with those thoughts.

Everyone gets hurt. No one is perfect. People mess up. Mistakes are made. But the cross you bare when you badmouth someone else's questionable deeds or good fortunes, their life advances or personal tragedies is a very heavy one.

When you engage in loose lip service per say "warning" peers or anyone within earshot about someone or someone's "drama" or perhaps you seem to regurgitate the pain someone has caused you over and over to friends, strangers, clients, family members....wel…

Here are my demands.

Everyday, dozens of questions come at me via text, email, voicemail, Facebook,
instagram and on the street. My late friend Tommy encouraged me to answer every single one because every one, EVERYONE matters.  And yes, I truly do believe that.

In my spiritual practice, my intention is to hold space with those who are looking to open up more, to be inspired, to touch possibility then take that into their world and light the next candle closest to them. Every day I pray for healing - for you, for the good of all.
That is what fires me up. That is what gets me pumped in the morning when I'm dancing solo in my kitchen getting ready to take on the day, bringing on the good vibes!

Sure, I may see things other ignore. And true, I've been known to serve as a line between the physical and the unseen.  But what's most important is that I am a soul, just like you having a human experience. With that comes the same trials, tribulations and concerns you have on a daily basis
- trust me…
