Don't Confuse the Two. Ever.


The last few days... weeks... have been a series of trials and tribulations for not only me, but ones i held very very close. I can't even begin to explain to you the lessons i have learned and the ones that keep slapping me in the face.
Which anyone can tell you... it's not a good look! 

I'm stepping away from my usual forum to give myself a little bit of therapy. I thank you for bearing with me, i promise i won't let myself wallow too long... but for me.... talking requires energy, and that right now isn't what i have an abundance of.

So give me a day or two... maybe even three... and then we should be back to our regularly scheduled program... 
PS. it's fine. 

Yes, some of the heartbreak is from years ago but still relevant. 

it's true. I do. 

learning to let go of the things that weigh me down, a life long journey. 

You just don't even know. 

someday this will ring true. 

the God Awful Truth ^^^^ right there^^^ 

and yes. i still would. if i could. 

You love it.

Can't Fly With Broken Wings...

Somehow I know that
There's a place up above
With no more hurt and struggling 
Free of all atrocities and suffering 
Because I feel the unconditional love 
From one who cares enough for me 
To erase all my burdens 
And let me be free to

Fly like a bird/Take to the sky 
I need you now Lord/Carry me high 
Don't let the world break me tonight 
I need the strength of you by my side 
Sometimes this life can be so cold 
I pray you'll come and carry me home 

Can we recover/Will the world ever be
A place of peace and harmony 
With no war and with no brutality 
If we loved each other 
We would find victory 
But in this harsh reality 
Sometimes I'm so despondant 
That I feel the need to 


Keep your head to the sky
With God's love you'll survive 
Fly like a bird
Take to the sky 
I need you now Lord/Carry me high 
Don't let the world break me tonight 
I need the strength of You by my side 

Sometimes this life can be so cold
I pray You'll come and carry me home 
Carry me higher, higher, higher 
Carry me higher, higher, higher 
Carry me home 
Higher Jesus 
Carry me higher Lord

Who'd have Thought....

"More Than Love"

We were in love before
But now it's so much more
Cause when I kiss your lips I can't explain
What I feel in my heart for you

I don't know what I'd do
Baby if I lost you
Cause I've been without you and I know how it feels 
And I can't be alone anymore

I know its more than love
Baby I can feel it
When I'm close to you
I know its more than love 
Baby, do you?

Maybe my words don't explain
Why I'm feeling this way


Maybe my words don't explain
Why I'm feeling this way

I don't know what I'd do
Baby if I lost you
Cause I've been without you and I know how it feels 
And I can't be alone anymore

I know its more than love
Baby I can feel it
When I'm close to you
I know its more than love 
Baby I can feel it
When I'm close to you
I know its more than love 
Baby, do you?

2011....2012... Jinkies it's been a Ride.

A new Year. Aagin. 

It's been a long one..2011... and i'm glad i got a chance to sit and really think about all of the goings on that occured over the past year. I have to say.. i have weathered a financial storm that would have brought most people to their knees... but as you all know i'm NOT most people and i happen to posses the strength to not only weather the storm.. but come out of it better than i went in. And i did. 

I am truly grateful for the lessons and blessings of 2011 ...Friends... the BIGGEST blessing of them all... and i love each and every one of YOU ... flip side; i know now that while it may be Family First.. be wary.. for it seems that those who are closest to you still have the capacity to do you dirty .... i learned that once you've been treated well in a relationship, ANY relationship,  there's no going back to any other way... . There was a lot of soul searching and separating the wheat from the chaff if you might. Realizing who is toxic is easy... cutting the poison.... a little harder... but necessary. 

Love. Ah you found me again. 
Not in the way that you might be imagining, although that love is around too... but the love of self is what i'm referring to.
 I was given the gift of reclaiming who i was/am/and will be, and that friends, is beautiful!! 

OF course there were other things.....LoillpaRUza 2011... Cocktail Rings n Things... Summer Fun and BBQ's a plenty....Northside benefits with my fave BOOTY, the Baby Sis turning the big 21.... trips to central city... My BEST Birthday PARTY EVER.... Karoake takeovers... lessons on love life and other mysteries... my IMAN WOODS Pin Up Shoot... ...sidewalk chalkin...Plankin Mary Jane... annual camping shenanigans... found a new favorite kitchen to play in...New babies all around.... old friends becoming new again...The DD got it's official dish of delish....The Poker Machine got renewed action ... tarot cards were read and magic happened..... The DD stalkers and jockers were in full effect....some friends moved far away.. some far aways moved back home...Basketball lockouts and season openers....the annual Bronco rollercoaster... The 420 score on yahtzee and beating out Auntie Phyl.. aka my mother.... aka the FORMER Yahtzee champ... and of course...love .. light and Tessmoker. *wink* 

In looking back i can't help but revel in the present and look forward to the future...for no matter what it might hold... good or bad... love or loss... we're all in for the long haul!! ;) 

And as my fave always says... It'll work out in the end... 

SO Sending you hugs n keeeesses and wishing you a FanFrickenTastic 2012... whatever you might do with it!! xoxo

Moving on from 2011's dead weight... lol
