Sometimes I think the universe has a way of trying to make you get your shit together.
I recently reconnected with a friend from high school. We literally have not spoken to each other in three years. Seriously, where has the time gone? We talked all night about how it’s weird that Chicago brought us back together, it has to be for a certain reason right?
We ended up trying to cook food and it reminded me of the time, this same friend, tried to cook popcorn and almost burnt my entire house down. The popcorn was literally black ashes.
The wine was flowing and her dog was farting. How did two small town girls make it to the big city?
We made it because we worked for it. We didn’t come from money. We came from hardworking people. And these hardworking people put these goals and values in our head that started at a very young age.
With that being said…I feel like I have something to say…something to give back to the world.
As a little girl, my mom would always tell me to be nice to everybody because you never know what they are going through. This is something I have carried with me into adulthood. I would not be the person I am today without her. My mom had me when she was sixteen and she has been the only person who has secretly held my hand through every day. She has been there, since the day I took my first breath. She gave me my wings. It’s just like Dolly Parton says, “She’s a sparrow when she’s broken, but she’s an eagle when she flies.” So, mom this is me screaming to the world “I AM SO PROUD OF YOU!”
I may cuss a lot or say perverted things, once in a while, or once every day, but I truly believe in God. I don’t go to church every Sunday, but I pray. So, judge me. I am who I am.
This brings me to my next thought:
This coming December it will be ten years that a dear friend, classmate, inspiration will be in heaven. And this quote will always remind me of him.
“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget the way you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou
So, to the teenagers out there bullying their classmates you need to stop and start caring about each other. Because you guys are the future and you never know what will happen. The kid that sits next to you in English, you know the one you pick on because he’s smart. He could be killed in an accident. Then how would you feel. Spread kindness, it matters. Treat others with respect. Open doors for people, because it literally could make their day.
I started this blog to help with my writing and to help me get better at writing comedy, but I also want it to inspire other people. If people actually follow it.
God Bless the people that decide to follow it and the people who actually decide to read my inner thoughts.
Walk with me on this journey.
“Can I get a what what ladies!” Remember to kick ass every day.
I thought I would share this video I created for a class in college.
It’s kind of embarrassing, but here it is.
