Life Can Be So Full Of Disappointments

Hi everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.

I had a pretty good weekend. I went out to dinner on Friday and Saturday, I love eating out. Later Saturday night, I celebrated with my favorite Bridezilla, Minyon… Happy birthday girlie!! I hung out with some of my stars – no 403s, lol. Got pressured into doing hookah and think I lost 6 minutes of my life and killed some brain cells. Thanx guys!! Sunday I had a fun filled day of bowling, playing games, and finished it off with some pizza. What more could a girl ask for?!

I know… I can ask to not get disappointed by folks, but that’s too much.

I’ve been thinking… They say that if you don’t expect anything, you won’t get disappointed. That’s a philosophy that I need to adopt and live by! I’m constantly being disappointed! I find myself thinking more about other people’s feeling than people think about mine. That is unacceptable and is going to come to an end!

I had a conversation with one of my girlfriends the other day about how men seem to think women are stupid. Is that really true? Do men really think they are so slick and that they are pulling something off? I know that I let some things go. Just because I don’t say anything doesn’t mean that I don’t think anything. Here is a prime example…

For several months this one guy who claimed to be interested in me would send me messages and photos. The issue was, he wasn’t sending them just to me and I knew this, but I never said anything. I just made a mental note and kept my eye on it. One day like six months later, I finally told him that when he sends me a message I can see everyone else that he sends the message to. His response was that he knew. Lying ass bastard. I hate when my intelligence is insulted. The next message that he sent, was just too me. I guess he was trying to conserve his text. Ugh there is nothing worse than a liar! Can’t stand cowards!! As my friend would say, he’s a frigg!!

Hopefully, I helped him out and none of the other girls he was sending the messages to has figured it out. I like to help where I can.

FYI, he’s not the one who disappointed me… That I’ll keep to myself.

On a side note… I was prepared to talk about something else today, but I figured that it wasn’t my business and I didn’t want to come across as catty, but what I will say… to the sad and pathetic woman who thinks that she is keeping such a great secret, WE KNOW… I want to be the first to say congrats on your upgrade from a man that used to beat you to a man who cheats on his wife with you. I hope that your mate, life partner, husband, or whoever is unfortunate enough to wind up with you doesn’t treat you with the same disregard and disrespect that your current boyfriend treats his wife! He must really think highly of you, you’re not the first and you won’t be the last

What have I taken from this!! Men are nothing but a disappointment!!

Love One Another

I spent the weekend In NYC… I had a great time… there was minimal aggravation… I allowed one person to really annoy me and steal my peace… I can’t allow that to happen again…

I arrive back to Tampa to learn that there were explosions in Boston and that the city I just left is on high alert… My prayers go out to those killed, injured, and were impacted in any way by this tragedy.

My takeaway… this could’ve happened anywhere…

I allowed someone else to get the best of me… What if today was my last? What if this occurred in Times Square while I was there?

People are going to be who they are going to be… People are going to think what they want to think… Unhappy people are going to reflect THIER issues and downfalls on you…Don’t allow other people’s thoughts or opinions, regardless to how asinine they are, wreck your peace… Especially when you know that the only thing they know about you is that you exist!!

Love One Another

11 Ways to Be Happier!!!

Hey everyone, I hope that you have been having a great week.

This year is going by soooo fast! We are nearly to the halfway mark and I’ve fallen off of most of my New Year’s Resolutions :-(! I’ve been to the gym a handful of times and worked out maybe one or two of those time. Oh I did buy Rocking Body; that counts for something!! I have stuck to the resolutions to cut back on spending money at work and eating out all the time, but that may be because the café at work literally makes me sick and my student loans are cutting into my leisure fund! Damn expensive ass education!!

All in all, I’m doing alright and I am pretty happy. I read an article, “11 Ways to Be Happier This Year”, it gave some helpful tips for when the happiness number dips…

1. Raise your default happiness level – Mine is generally between 7 and 8; I’m looking to be a 9.5!!! I figure 10 would be too much to ask for…
2. Make happy friends – I believe I’m the happy friend and I’m at my friend max… so… this wont work for me.
3. Spend more times on relationships – I think I’m pretty good at this, which is why I can’t add any more friends… don’t wanna get spread too thin lol
4. Have more sex with your spouse – This sounds like a good one… I’m working on it lol
5. Be grateful – I can definitely admit that I have a blessed life!
6. Be generous – Does this count? My sister just bullied me into donating to some cause she didn’t even explain that somehow involves my nephews daycare… my nieces and nephews always hitting me up for some sort of fundraiser… I need kids to balance this out… I’d also give more if I didn’t have to repay my student loans! Maybe I should get a doctorate, I was just talking about this at lunch…
7. Focus on security, not money – Easier said than done.
8. Spend on experiences rather than objects – Living social has been a great aide with this, those who don’t have it, GET IT!
9. Take some R&R – Get plenty of that, I don’t need an excuse to vacation! I ♥ NY
10. Go back to nature – If it’s not the beach, I can’t appreciate nature, too many bugs!!
11. Try therapy – Ehh between my one semester of psychology and Dr. Phil, I think I got it under control lmao. Y’all can come see me for some advice!

 

I’m not really sure what needs to happen to boost my happiness level, maybe it’s unreasonable to ask to be a 9.5. I am happy with my 8 for now and will work on boosting it on those rainy days. Everyone check out the article, it’s pretty interesting.
