UnTied My Running Shoes

The biggest obstacle in life is yourself. If you have already predicted or "doomed" (as Mommy said) the situation at hand, why continue? What if you want it so, so, so terribly bad you can taste it? When I was younger and we lived in St. Louis, MO Nana used to come visit us quite frequently. Being the chef she is, she always TRIED to teach me how to cook and when I wasn't having it I HAD to watch. One Chef-Boyar-Nana lesson we were using the stove...you know the thing built into the counter with the round coils that turn red when they are super hot?! Yeah, Nana said "Now Jessica don't touch the eyes on the stove." A little explination as to WHY I shouldn't touch these eyes on the stove would've been nice...yep, my right hand had a spiral blister all up in the palm!
I won't get close to a dern hot red eye on a stove.

Point of this blog is (drum roll please)...

Who wants to re-live something painful?

We all know you can't change the past, but you have full control of the future. Not every situation is going to have the same ending and not every "friend" is going to treat you terribly. BUT, how do you know? Here is where the "dooming" comes in. If you think it and feel it, it is bound to happen. I was told this morning you have to give a little more as time passes...you can't live in fear of history repeating. Easier said than done. Well some days are easier than others. A.K.A. mixed signals.
Real Talk, NO MORE negative people, NO MORE excuses and absolutely no walking away. Gotta put the ole foot down. (Well baby steps...pinky promise).

Is Inspired & Tired

If you were to look back on your life today, would you say your life was explosive or impulsive....like did it blow up in your face EXPLOSIVE(Mystikal style) or did you act on impulse to be left with that "OMG, no I didn't" feeling....

Just a sittin' by the Sea....

Do people really put letters in bottles and hope someone gets it on the other side of the ocean??? That would be the coolest thing ever! I used to have many pen-pals, but as I get older my days get more hectic. E-mails are much easier, but there is nothing like the feeling of pen hitting up paper. Every time I get a piece of mail with my name on it (NOT BILLS) I get over joyed! Just the other day one of my friends sent me a little "hello." How sweet, I mean 2 sentances is all it takes. Even though we talk thru e-mails and texts, he sent me a card to wish me a wonderful weekend! Talk about taking a second out of your busy day to drop a line!

Back to the topic at hand (I feel I write that alot), the message in a bottle...I want to do it! I want to be the sender. Should I wrap the bottle in bubble wrap? Will it sink? How about someone going to explore the bottom of the ocean and find all these bottles...They might be kinda upset thinking it might be a treasure map. That would be pretty darn awesome!

25 RanDoMS...

If everyone were to jump off a bridge I would too, with a bungee-cord of course!

Enjoy!

1. I do not live on this planet. Whenever Daddy wants me to listen, he starts with “Earth to Jessica.”

2. I have some really awful habits that I can’t seem to break. I chew over three 42oz cups of ice a day, I analyze EVERYTHING to the point I start to feel sick, if I don’t want to do something you bes believe it’s not going to happen, if you like Doritos as much as I do your best bet is to hide them or eat them before I see the bag.

3. I am always down to have a spitting or burping contest. If you think it’s gross, don’t participate.

4. When I grow up I want to…shucks who am I kidding, I’m never going to grow up.

5. My baby sister hates when I call her Midge, Boo-Boo, Nug or Munchkin. Her name is Dakota and that is what she wants me to call her. What is the fun in that? I LOVE YOU Booga-boo-boo-boooo-boo!

6. Mommy and I went shopping for hair color the other day at CVS. A certain brand happened to be BOGO (buy one, get one free). Considering my hair was short and only needed one box, it was pointless to purchase 2. As we stand there contemplating, Moms had the bright idea of going ahead with the BOGO…and coming back later to return the box we actually paid for and explaining to the cashier we used the “free” one. I would like to add that my Mother own a fart machine.

7. I have 3 baby girls and 1 little man. One lives with Daddy, one I lost in Le Divorce, another found a better home and the 4th is not blood related. Trouble (my first born Heinz 57), Diesel a.k.a. Mr. Jingles (his handsome Chihuahua self got him scooped up), Harley (my spoiled rotten Boxer lives with the ex-in laws) and Coco Marie Chanel (the Wheaten Terrier step-child with awful breath).

8. The only reason I like the tanning bed is for the 20 minutes I lay in there…it’s SILENT. No phone, there is only room for 1 body, and it’s the only door I will shut and lock.

9. Music and writing are the only 2 things that keep me sane.

10. Everything has a meaning. Purple shoes mean power, the dimple in your chin means you are independent, if it’s raining while the sun is out a fox is getting married…shall I continue???

11. Everything happens or has reasoning behind it. If you ace a test, you probably studied. If you win the lottery, you probably bought a ticket and guessed the winning numbers. If you trust everyone you meet, you have probably never been burned. If you don’t like SpongeBob, you probably have never sat thru a whole episode.

12. Fast-food is not in my diet. Doritos and Chicken are the basis of what I consume.

13. I have made many mistakes in my life, but I am human so we live and learn. For those of you who have witnessed or been a part of my many mistakes in this ever so changing life of mine, I can’t thank you enough for not giving up. You know who you are.

14. I am the original author of The Awesome Dawson Dictionary. Every word has an off the wall meaning and the pronunciation key is EXACTLY how the word must be spoken.

15. This survey is right up my alley because I love talking about myself. (There I admitted it Dakota.) Then again I really think it’s because I like to talk, whether anyone is listening or not.

16. Making people laugh is the first thing on my mind when I wake up every morning.

17. Snoop Doggy Dog is my Mom’s ex-husband.

18. I like to over-exaggerate. Most of the time it’s NOT on purpose. My life is like a dream, anything can happen. My mind wanders and usually doesn’t come back for days, so therefore, I believe certain things really happened even if they didn’t.

19. Whitney Houston wrote the song “I’m Every Woman” for me. Although, this ain’t no Burger King so you don’t get it your way.

20. In addition to #19, I am VERY satisfied with my singleness. You don’t have to have a significant other to be happy. Happiness comes from within. If you aren’t happy alone, you won’t be happy with someone else. Just like having a baby when the roads get tough…get it together ladies! A youngin’ will only make it worse!

21. My Papa is my Sunshine and there are no words to describe how much I miss him. I love you and know you are watching your girls!

22. I still don’t know my multiplication tables.

23. I love GOLD jewelry. Jewelry in general…I collect crosses though I’m not very religious. You will rarely catch me sporting silver.

24. When I go hunting, I don’t shoot the gun, I watch.

25. I have frequent brain farts.

If YOU were EVERY Woman, who would you be?

Better yet, what would you be? Sweet, mean, bossy, divaliscious, smarty-pants? One of my ALL time favorite "feel good" songs is Whitney Houston, I'm Every Woman. What an ear snack! When the tunes come out my speakers my foot starts a-tappin' and my head starts bobbin'! Listening, sometimes even singing along, this song can turn an awful day into one filled with sunshine and rainbows!

Back to the topic of discussion, if you were every woman...how would you act? I'm thinking total nut-case! Women are very complex individuals. Shucks, I'm female and I can hardly bear my own self! A little sugar-n-spice for sweetness, Texas Pete for the ultra spicy/sassy moments, GREEN mint chocolate-chip ice cream for the cold bitchy mood with the crisp refreshness caused by the mint and for the final touch, a nice refreshing splash of your alochol of choice creating the footloose, don't give a darn attitude! (Why I choose to use condiments and food to paint this beautiful woman, only God can explain. Then again anything I say or do can never be explained.)

A little of every woman all meshed into one human body seems mighty scary to me. Ponder on this...everyone of your friends have different qualities to help bring out the best in yourself. Sounds kinda selfish, BUT you have one friend to knock you back down when you act to big for your panties, one to always have your back & protect you from the evil in life, one to be your partner in crime to paint the town red, one you confide in to be honest and guide you thru tough times and lastly the one woman who will never ever judge you no matter how bad you bust your face into the cement. Although all the above are great qualities for any one person to posess, but what would be the fun in that?

Being EVERY woman in a one woman body would be exausting. Then again, do you realize how much fun you could have? It's like having a split personality without being split! BLAM! IN YOUR FACE, what you get is what you get.

To conclude this thought of mine, I hope you are happy being you. So what if someone doesn't like you for who you are. Who's forcing them to be apart of your marvelous life anyway?
