1)darkness can be disorienting.
2)nothing makes me feel like buying a new pair of shoes like paying bills.
3)there are a few good people left in the world.
4)she has learned to live up to the name wondering juju.
5)when you feel like you are in a fish bowl, put your headphone on and JACK the volume.
6)the goose used the word bitch in front of me. She said it was fine because everyone uses it. What a difference a month makes.
7) sometimes I feel like my name should be murphy’s law.
8) it’s hard to come up with a gift for a strange when you don’t bake. Store bought cupcakes scream thanks, but not enough to dirty up my kitchen.
9) inadvertently disappointing people feels much worse than doing it on purpose.

and one to grow on
forgiveness takes its own time. You can no more demand it than you can demand respect. When you have made a misstep and require forgiveness, you may not say “ok enough already. Buck up and move on.” We’ll I suppose you can, but I wouldn’t recommend it. I find myself wondering if there are things that are unforgivable. Of course there are acts which may be, but I mean just every day oopsies. How about when you have held on to disappointment for so long that you forget the actual circumstances. Often times I think forgiveness has more to do with the one forgiving than the relationship between those involved. I think lying is a deal breaker. Lies of omission are forgivable. But, when someone looks you straight on and fails to be honest it skews everything they have ever said. I wonder if when we forgive, we can actually put to rest the trouble. does that rest come in time or in the action of forgiveness? Is there a way to learn a lesson and not be suspicious of the next new person you meet? Or does this become our baggage?E
