#Checkmate

​Whenever you find yourself appalled by someone’s behavior, surprised or even disgusted, remind yourself that your emotions and/or reactions are based on the expectation you’ve placed on that individual and their life. However that doesn’t mean that that’s their reality. 

Live long and prosper fockers 🖖,

One antidote to stress is self-expression. That’s what happens to me every day. My thoughts get off my chest, down my sleeves and onto my pad. – Garson Kanin

In the book I’m currently reading titled, Awakened Mind by David Kundtz he states,

This is not merely an option, but an urgent necessity for healthy, wise 21st – century living. Find your “something” now-or very soon.

What David is referring to is that something you do that helps you deal; that something that aids you with coping with not only the manic of the world but also the stressors that come along with day to day life. As I’m reading this of course writing comes to mind. If you know me by now, you know without a doubt that writing is my something. As I read on I recall that as I’ve grown to prefer solitude as I’m coping with life, I’ve adopted a few somethings: music, working out, meditation, allowing myself to cry and embracing the silence.

In my past, I was ashamed to admit that life was getting to be too much for me.  I’ve always had a dominant personality and I felt like admitting I was stressed would make me seem weak. Have you ever felt that way?

How many hats do you wear? Who are you to each individual person in your life? Are you a parent, a friend, a sibling, a partner, a caregiver, a child, a boss, an employee or all the above? Think about it. Not only is that a lot of personalities to deal with every single day but it’s also a lot of responsibility. Now add finances, politics, religion, grief and loss, guilt, unresolved emotion, the effects of world events and everything else we experience to that list. AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! How are we not all insane?!

So sit back and think about your life and all that comes with it, ask yourself what is your something. What do you do to deal with the ups, downs and all arounds of life? What practices help maintain your sanity in this insane world? And if you can’t think of anything at all…I suggest you do.

Live long and prosper beautiful fockers,

#oneLife2Live

image

I’ve lost both of my parents. I’m 37 and I live in an empty nest. Most nights I dine with my thoughts, cuddled up and comfy with solitude. Silence keeps me warm. Regret keeps me busy.

Some people don’t really understand the significance of time. More than money or any other materialistic thing, its what I wish I had more of.

We take advantage of the notion of tomorrow, not really accepting the fact that it might not show up. We spend so much of our moments chasing fantasies and worrying about the things we can’t control.

By focusing on who I’d disappoint, I sacrificed my own happiness, spending many years of my life living for other people. Who I was, was lost. My vision was unclear. I sit in silence thinking of how many opportunities I was gifted to experience life, wishing I could go back in time. To the moment when…

All she wanted to do was love me.

We learn our ABCs; we don’t learn how to be happy. Boy and Girls today’s lesson: How to people please. We are raised to be drones, programmed to live for our family, religion and society. We live in a space where people seldom ask, “Are you truly happy?”

My advice to you:

Don’t wait until it’s too late
Cherish those you love
Treasure those who love you
Live your life for you
Do what you love
Be who you want to be
NOW is all we have

Until we meet again,
Tiffany Michellé 💋

What’s not said, what’s not there ~ The ♥ illusion

What’s not said, what’s not there ~ The ♥ illusion

So you’re single and looking. You’re on every free dating site known to man. You bring yourself to get out of the house and you attend as many community events as your schedule allows. You put on your big girl panties and try speed dating. You’re really making a conscious effort to think outside of the box. You go on dates with people you’re not attracted to, just in case they have a cute friend. You’re determined to find someone or allow them to find you.

just_another_painting_sexy_man__by_aenaluck-d5lkhwvAfter a series of unfortunate affairs, you meet someone! They are unquestionably fabulous! They’re stunning, smart and sexy. They’re absolutely everything you listed in your “what I want in a mate” journal.

The catch: One day while having blissful conversation, they drop the “F” bomb in your lap!

“I’m not looking for a relationship; I’m only interested in being FRIENDS.”

waitwhatYou act as if you’re ok with it but inside you really feel like someone just stole your brand new cute little fluffy puppy or came in 30 seconds, whichever is worse. You just met but you felt like this could develop into something beautiful being that they’re everything you want. If they asked, you would’ve totally thrown out every precaution and walked down the aisle followed by a lifetime of sweet, sweaty, sensual and in some states illegal, sexual escapades.

In that exact moment, there’s a vital opportunity to practice an ultimate act of self-actualization. You could respond, “Ok well, I AM seeking a relationship and I’d rather get to know someone who has the same goal,” BUT you don’t. You go along with what you don’t want. You put your desires on the back burner. You continue getting to know them, knowing you’re totally attracted to them, you want more than a friendship with them and they don’t want the same. In the back of your head you’re thinking, “If they get to know me and see how wonderful I am, they’ll change their mind” and your heart suffers continuing to long for something that isn’t there.

But Why

Until next time my sweet little pumpkin nutty balls,

They might just be blind as #@!$

Some shit just doesn’t work out. Every relationship isn’t meant to go on forever. Sometimes experiences occur solely to teach us something about ourselves. It doesn’t meant you need to question your self-worth. You’re enough, but you must believe it.
