It was the best of times…(8/1/17)

What if in “heaven,” patti, you also have to think of what you want before you get it? You have to start every windfall with your own little blowing? You have to do what you can, with what you’ve got, to make stuff happen?

Yeah, that’s what I said! You’re going to totally own the place.

Here’s the thing about me.๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

I don’t look back much.

Have no interest.๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

I mean really, what’s the point?

There is way too much to look forward too!

Good times.๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Bad times,maybe.

Hopefully not too many.

As my mother was famous for saying:

You take the good with the bad, and the bad with the good, that my friends is LIFE๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ

“We strive for the good days, and pray through the bad.” / Mayo Angelou  

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times,

it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness,

it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity,

it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness,

it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despairโ€ฆ

Life has taken me on many roads over the years.๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ

Some good.

And some not so good.

Some downright awful.๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

There were days I swear I would never get through.



ON the verge of a nervous break-down at one point ;-(

Not once.

Or twice.

Three times!!!๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

Fortunately, I never had a TOTAL nervous break-down.

Kind of like, a few mini ones.

The point is, on the days when I thought I would NEVER get through it.

I did.

And that’s one of the reasons I don’t look back.

Been there, done that!!!

I wake up every day looking forward to what the day is going to bring me๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ

And of course, what I’m going to bring to the day!

That’s the human spirit at work.๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ


You’re not going that way๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

All eyes ahead on the future!

YOUR future.

And your FUTURE is not in the past.

It’s straight in front of you.

So, your JOB is to keep doing everything you can to keep moving in the right direction towards where you want to be.

Trust me, it’s not behind you.

It’s IN FRONT OF YOU๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‰

Make it your mission in life to keep pushing forward until you get where you want to be!

It’s your life and you deserve all the best it has to offer๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช

Don’t get distracted by people and situations.

They will always be there.

Be so laser-focused on your future, that you have blinders on to anything that doesn’t serve your best interest!

And promise me you won’t STOP till you get there ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ

“Soda becomes vodka.  Bikes become cars.

Kisses turn into sex.  

Remember when

dad’s shoulder’s were the highest place

on earth and mom was your hero?

Race issues were about who ran the 

fastest.  War was only a card game.

The most pain you felt was when you

skinned your knees, and goodbyes only

meant until tomorrow!

And we couldn’t wait to grow up.”

That’s a wrap!

Till next time,
