GREEN

so, im 30 goin on 31 (in nov)
and im pretty thoroughly green
or at least i try to be...

i recycle everything... plastics, bottles, glass, papers...
not really so much metals yet. but workin on it.

I even recycle clothes, furniture, etc. etc.

i REALLY try to reduce the trash and garbage that i put into the landfills
at least MY and MY CHILDRENS part

i instill in them the value of trying to preserve our earth and its NATURAL resources so that hopefully one day my grandchildren and great grandchildren can enjoy the same beauty that we have...

I own a truck thats about the only thing thats not so green about my lifestyle.
I have 3 kids so i have to have a roomy vehicle, but we also ALL have bikes,

and we USE them...

everywhere we can bike we do... :)

the exercise is great and its saving the earth

i see more and more bikers everyday

a revolution starting i hope

anyways pick up trash
recycle
do your part
and the world will be a better place for everybody

the future generations you'll never get to see will be blessed by your sacrifices.


dont be mean
GO GREEN


Saturday, July 30, 2011

i woke up

i woke up today REMINDED of how BLESSED i am

how i AM FOREVER anointed in JESUS' blood and love

good morning everyone literally
i cant believe im even up this early
a CLEAR working of the LORD

so anyways i went to sleep and woke up with NO panic attack
thank GOD
the last one i had was MAJOR bad...

they keep getting more intense and longer with each one i get.

im scared if i have one while im driving or something i'll die....

anyways getting off the subject
i woke up today and wanted to just PRAISE GOD for his miracles, his grace and kindness and his forever unconditional love and blessings.

thank you for this day.

may i see this entire day LORD

may my eyes be open to all your miracles BIG and small alike

enjoy your Saturday's people

they're one of GOD's many miracles given to you

don't take anything for granted

life is TOO short

are you living the life GOD created you to live?

are you being the best Christian you can be?

do you talk to GOD?

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

im over it

i swear im OVER the stress
the confusion

i wont stand to argue with ANYONE
and i WILL TALK FUCKIN WRECK LESS TO WHOM EVER I WANT TO!!!
YOU AINT GOD!

i KNOW my rights sweetie and i have a LOT of them!

you know you can only take so much
theres only so much niceness
so much kindness
so much patience

and then when its over its OVER

i am THIS close to ex-ing everything, everyone out of my life!!!

just me and the kids.

thats the only drama i'll tolerate man.

and they bring ENOUGH of it trust me!

life is so short to be letting other people stress you out.

the only person that can tell me what to do is LORD JESUS CHRIST

no other

people can only bend so much before they what??

BREAK!

people dont understand that even after years and years sometimes the friendship dissipates
vanishes, ends.

we arent friends anymore,
we arent married anymore

june 7th...


june 7th 2011, 12 years of marriage

a friendship dissolved

we dont have to understand each other anymore

we dont have to talk.

i dont know you
you dont know me

its over

its been over
now we just have to accept that reality.

that no, we arent friends,

maybe we never were

maybe we just acted like it because we were married.

because we had a kid together

but he's growing up

almost a teen.

and soon when he's grown

we will never know each other again

im saying good bye to the whole past

all the tearful memories.

heart wrenching stories

im letting it all go

im finally over it

The Social Network

so, I just finished watching The social Network

and i gotta say it was a very interesting, intertwined, kinda fast pace story

one with an ending that I dont think anyone would have been satisfied with...

at least not any of the conflicting parties involved...

it was interesting how smug mark zuckerburg was at times. but I couldnt hate on him

or his attitude really because he was that brilliant!!!

it was crazy how he like completely hacked into all those universities computer databases, and when confronted with the charges he said "i think I should get some recognition from the room" that he "had found some pretty gaping holes in the system."


and who could call him wrong?

he created "face smash" in just a few hours while drunk, and simultaneously blogging LMAOOOO.

it was as he says "a cake walk"

I dont know if i agree with him "stealing" the twins idea


i personally think the idea was already out there.
black planet, myspace etc...

so WHAT was (is) it about facebook that makes and sets it apart from any other social network??

i dont have the answer but it is the answer to that question that made mark a billionaire

the world's YOUNGEST as of 2008

and its the answer that makes facebook so popular...

I dont think i personally had a problem with anything that he did.

not with the twins, or any of the other business partners...

up until the part about the bestfriend.

now this guy was DOWN from the beginning

put up the front money... 1,000

then the 18,0000 just to hold dude over while he was in cali... for the summer

like how much love is that?

mark himself didnt have the means,

and from the movie (which is what im going on)

neither did napster creator sean either.

so really it was the bestfriend who at that point (to me) WAS CARRYING THE PROJECT financially alone at the time.

Sean did very welll as far as his connections, i think he took the company very far

but without the brains, financial means, connections, etc...

without ALL of the organs it wouldnt have been made into what facebook is today.

i salute all of them.

its very motivational yet at the same time keeps it very real at how business and pleasure and friendships dont really mix.


or at least what can happen when they do.


mark is still currently the youngest billionaire in the world.

i believe mark had to pay the twins 65 million, for their "idea"

and an unnamed amount went to the bestfriend in a settlement, he got his title REinstated to C.F.O. of facebook and i believe he owns approximately 6% of facebook. i think out of everyone he got screwed out of the deal the most.

but thats just something personal that i feel.

i always was taught you never forget where you come from, or who was down when you was...

to me, he was a friend till the end "when he got screwed"

in the movie it depicted mark feeling some remorse about how things ended and went down between him and his bestfriend

i hope that was an authentic portrayal.

for anyone who hasnt seen The Social network

about the starting and creation of facebook and its owners.

its a great movie 4stars :)

Priorities

wheeew
once you get one stone thrown another takes it place!!!

im STILL tryna get this camping trip planned.

summer is coming to a close FAST!

TOO FAST LOL

but im working on it.

every since we been biking we been spending so much on bike accessories lol

we not saving at all!! LOL

anyways all my family and friends is getting they straight travel on,
and me being a traveler by nature...

she's bursting to come out!!!

so i DEF am getting a vacation together!

im leaving the COUNTRY! :)

gonna get my pasaporte lol

y vamoos

vamanos

lol

anyways im up,

all alone

kids down

i had a late nap

now what???

nothin lol

maybe hit the 7 11 one time.

maybe.

i need to order tattoo supplies man

there is truly TOO much to do and not enuff time

ugh and theres this new security guard,

his ass is creepy as hell!

straight stalker case!?

i hope they dont have him around too long...

but on another note i finally came to an understanding with my newest neighbors
which is a TOTAL blessing from GOD!!!

its so crazy how u never know what the next person is going through until they let you know

I found out that 2 of my neighbors have heart conditions :( with the little monitors n everything, bless their hearts ♥♥♥ LITERALLY LORD.

and thank you for letting us bridge the gap we were struggling with :)

i PRAY for them,

their health :)

their hearts ♥

SEE what WE take for granted people??

our own beating hearts.

RELISH in your blessings big and small!

when you take your blessings for GRANTED they vanish!!

believe me

they're is alot of miserable people in the world
because they abused and neglected their blessings

and they pay for it everyday

some even TOO stubborn to accept what theyve done,
own it,
apololize,
right the wrongs in their life.

just because a blessing gets taken from you doesnt mean you wont be blessed again, or that it wont come back to you

you have to prove to the LORD you are worthy of such great blessings
assure HIM that they arent in vain.

i used to be miserable too.

everyday

until i eliminated everything and everyone that was bringing me down

it hurt


but i get to wake up everyday smiling
singing ☺♪♫

living the SAME life i was living when i was down ↓

living in the same apartment

with the same neighbors

i just CHOOSE to be happier

i AM happier

im healthier

im eating better

i dont smoke cigarretes anymore DONT NEED EM

the stress was the problem,

the stress factors,

once they left so did the nicotine!!!

the LORD lifted the shields off of my eyes and let me see how GREAT i have it!

i have a great apartment,

kind neighbors,

they carry my groceries for me,

they ask do i need anything ☺

they move furniture for me

they teach my kids how to ride a bike

they wash my dishes

i have a wonderful view,

a car,

food,

healthy, funny kids

great friends,

family,

more family,

extended family ☺

i had wonderful grandparents ♥☺

what is there NOT to love about life??

EXACTLY!!

people get your priorities together!!

thank the LORD for everything you have

PRAY!

be steady in your word

stay humble

and watch how GOD blesses you

from every angle ☺

prioritize it makes all the difference

evolution

we all take certain paths through life,
all of them ending in the same place

we all just have to find our own way

facts of life are:
we never know what we have until its gone

we value material things WAY too much

the BEST things in life are FREE

when we as a people all start to realize these things, life will get easier.

we push the people we love so far away from us

then we dont know how to reconnect

everything gets lost

but if we learn valuable lessons from our tragedies
them none of it is in vein

we learn, we grow, and we shape and change ourselves
for the ONE

the one that you grow old with
fight lifes battles with

raise the kids with...

the person that when you look at them you dont see wrinkles
or scars,
you dont see any fault in them at all
all you see is beauty.

all you see is your FUTURE.

when you have a solid person in your life nothing else matters
because all you need is that person

all your problems fade
your worries dissipate

and its just you and your entire world laying in front of you

recently everyone i know is getting married,
engaged
talking about marriage etc.

LOVE is definitely in the air i can tell you that!!

its a good thing!

i see a lowering number of men running away from their responsibilities

having a family is TOUGH

its scares many, many, many men

it robs them of the beauty of their children

and usually by the time the men see what they're actually missing

its too late

someone else has already taken that place...

men, boys, young men,
please value your families
the women that love you enough to give you children

birth is NOT easy.

we go through all that, depending on our men to do their part.


Shout out to all my real men that stood with they kids and family ...and didn't run from responsibility


you are saluted


you might be under appreciated dads

but as your kids grow older and turn into adults they will reflect on the part you played in their childhood

in the way you may have helped shape them into a great person

they will remember the valuable lessons you have taught them.

then they will teach those same values to their children...

and thats how you will live on forever fathers

leave a legacy for yourself

leave something behind besides negativity

Fathers i worry about your absences in your childrens life.

but i still have faith in you.

PRAY!!!

pray continuously and keep the devil from deceiving you.

i know you can make a difference

ONE man CAN change the world :)

love ♥ to all

Friday, July 8, 2011
