  1. Last night, I couldn’t remember if I took my anxiety medication.
  2. This morning, my 6 year old acted like a packed old G from Compton.
  3. Midday, an AA meeting triggered a major loss grief in my life, setting my anxiety on fire.

Sunday Whirl

Check out the details to this challenging post, here 😀

Here’s a list of this week’s words.

It was their Senior Year; and, they were itching for some fun. Through every other school year, they were the perfect manifestations of male and female students. They studied hard, got straight A’s, never caused friction with other Students. Hell, they nearly had perfect attendance too.
The shuffling, powdery substance, and eerie silence 🤫 was too much. There were dangerous broken pieces of metal, wire, and glass sprinkled around the entire lower floor. Chase and Laurel were nearly joined at the hip. A rustic and dried blood stained chainsaw blade hung in the wall that ran the left side of the living room. It was hard to miss. They nearly slit their hands, running from a spook that came shortly after entering the building.

This rundown 2687 sq/ft abandoned house belonged to Graphdun’s notoriously evil sociopath. For five decades, stories about Mr Sparling haunted the village. Many said the man was so apathetic, he’d pull an arm out of his victim’s socket, just to hang her (they were all females). Meanwhile, he’d stand there and get off, watching her scream in horror and agony.

The two slightly shuffled across the room, shoulder to shoulder, hand in hand. Again, then came a creek and rattle from across the room. It was as if whomever.. or should they say, whatever it was, mimicked them.

”Do you hear how close that seems?” Laurel barely managed to asked before everything went black, and she was gagging. She was wrapped in a retched and sticky blanket of some kind.

What snack would you eat right now?

Somethin ‘bout food!! Mmmmm caught my attention. 😂😂😂😂

So let’s talk snacks, shall we? Let’s get into it!

Some of my snacks are the following:

  1. Popcorn
  2. Fresh Fruit
  3. Granola Bars
  4. Yogurt
  5. Cookies
  6. Chocolate
  7. Nutella

Usually, when I’m snacking, I’m also watching a movie. Right now, I have my tv on, while I write. Multitasking is a part of me that comes natural. It’s a must with being a single mom. Aside from watching movies and snacking, I enjoy listening to podcasts and eating.

Here’s an amazing site with plenty of episodes of countless categories:) There’s definitely something for everyone!

Have a listen 🙂

Few Shorts Written This Morning

I wasn’t enough.
I can’t be to a person who
Feel’s nothing REAL..
Who holds the key to
A darkness that Hell Fears.
I can’t love any of your ugly,
Hold any of your torture,
Fix any of your suffering,
Or wish for any of your time.
I forgive myself for my
Illusion of who you were..
But, I now see who you are..
By God’s powerful grace
I forgive you..
But, I won’t let you
Destroy the life in me…
Because you’re empty,
Dark, and Broken.

– Nova Namastè

Yea, there’s hell and high waters.
That’s life.
Friend or foe… every being
Skeletons and secrets..
Their own demons, ugly and
Crippling diseases of night..
War rages on, when
Falls.. ..
Every enemy that
Resides within,
Cackles their devilish
As if reminding us,
They’re destruction
Is hellbent…
The strongest of
Us wage on.
Walking through fire
To be Indestructible.

Do You Want to Live Forever or Live a Lifetime in a Few Years

Do you want to live forever?

I would never choose to live forever, in this physical world.

Why? Why would I deliberately choose to hurt loved ones? Why would I allow that pain to show it’s face, if I have the choice?

Let’s compartmentalize this thought, shall we?

  • Forever means overpopulation!
    Ummm… She, who is impatient, claustrophobic, highly sensitive, and Introverted… No thanks!
  • Pollution and Air Quality! Have you ever been to places like Korea, China, or Japan? There’s no way I’d want this planet in such devastating decay. Nor would I ever want my children to live in such a terrible place.
  • Science isn’t meant to be altered, for the sake of selfish intentions. I know the world of DNA cloning and robotics, AI’S, and advanced methods are in infant stages. I’m not sure that’s safe.. If that’s what humans should be doing.. If it’s for the good of all society. There’s no way, I’d challenge the natural process of life by living forever.
  • Additionally, if I lived forever, how much love would I receive from others? There’s an ignorance within our species that allows the elements needed for fruitful results, to be buried, until it’s fruitless tears at a funeral or wake.
  • Finally, the idea of living forever implies quantity. More what… Would productivity happen? Would anything happen? Or would we all sit back and say, ” Ah well, I’ll get around to it.” And ” Well, there’s always tomorrow.” The state of being would consist of poor quality.
