My Cup is 1/2 Full...Please Don't Knock Mine Over!
Why fo' can't I sit here and sip out MY damn cup...without suckas tryna knock it out my hand?
Okay, I will NOT go into the specifics (tired of talking on THAT subject)...all I'm going to say is that negativity spreads like wild fires...setting aflame everything in it's path. Even the beautiful things that just so happen to be in it's way. Sometimes people don't THINK they're being negative...but, here's a few tips to search your soul for that answer:
~Is what I have to say helping? ~Did anyone ask my opinion? (this should be #1) ~If I don't say anything is it going to kill me?
Every thought doesn't have to be articulated. I say this 1,000 times a day. We all fall victim frequently to the Internet's lure of instant gratification...think it now...say it NOW! Yet, there is something that sits between thought and action. It's called the BACKSPACE button. JUST when you start tip-tapping on those keys and your words spill out through your fingertips...take ONE second and ask yourself how necessary it is. If you still feel the need to press forward...so be it. (At this point, certain things said in MY opinion are now tools for attention to either get an "Amen Corna" or to stand out). After this...whatever.
I don't get in the way of people's individual expression. I see shit every day that makes me want to figure out a way to petition companies to check for Chimp genes before letting folks buy a computer. Yea, I said it...I'm convinced that some of these "personalities" are REALLY named Bo-Bo, Cocoa da Chimp, Bubblez' cousin Sudzie...and that they wear overalls and bow ties every day. *want a banana?* LOL. Seriously, I mostly sip from this cup o'mine and savor the flavor of patience, understanding, compassion and freedom...mine and other's. I just don't care what you're sipping on. If I love you...I'll offer you some of what I'm drinking. If you say, "no thank you"...I'll continue to sip and consider saving you some just in case you change your mind.
I also have a gripe with the snooty, haughty, snobbish folks coming in with their "I'm too good for this". LAWD, it's enough to make me lose my religion (wait, Iowneeben go to church) ...well, make me wanna cuss. The quickest way for ME to snub YOU is for YOU to snub everything. My ex used to hate on my love of FB games. "Why do you play that stuff? Shouldn't you be reading a paper?" MAN...if you don't....MAN...don't make me pop you!!!
I've HAD it. I walk lightly through life mostly. Yea, I have my moments when life kicks my ass and I kick it right back. It pulls my hair...I kick it's shins. "WHAT, Life...DO somefin, FOO!" LOL...but, for the most part...I'm chill. I'm in my own groove, kicked back, chilling off the vibes that flow from friends, fam, and mostly GOD. If I'm some place that is too this or that for me...I find another place to be. Isn't it just that simple?WHY must folks dampen others' spirits for things. Why does other people's unhappiness, insecurities, big-headed egos, etc. have to step on other people's pinky toes? SOME times...just UNPLUG! ::GASP:: *oh, no she didn't say dat* YES DAMN YOU...UNPLUG!! Instead of spitting on someone else's fire with your lofty attitude and basement bullshit...log off. Take a breath. Go meditate. Read the Dictionary. Go watch a movie. Research your name. Play with your/someone's kid. Call up an elder in your family and say hi. Draw something by hand. Go take a walk and take pics (my fave). Either way...learn to STFU. I sweeear, I still got coupons for that. Giving them out by request. Some...well, you just might win one in the Kween's lotto. O_O

I'm a lover AND a fighter...I like the folks most don't. I walk to the beat of a drummer....who isn't REALLY in the band, but got the best beats. I am big on love..."I see you" where you're at...hopefully this blog helps you to see me, as well. Either Love me...or leave me alone!
Having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. - a quote by Dinah Craik
