Yes................Today is All I Have

I am me.  I am not perfect, more losses than wins, it's true.  My mother taught me thirty years ago, it's NORMAL to screw shit up, to WANT to be hateful and ugly at times, to try to overcome all that humanity.  Works for me.

 

What I have is this day.  That's it.  Oh, I have decades of "past" shit.  But, grin...................today, is what I have.  Today I might be angry, hateful, loving, kind, a bitch, sweet...............................I'm no different than any other human being.

 

In two weeks, I will be attending my first born's wedding. He told me six years ago he would NEVER get married because he believed love was a lie.  I'll be there.  I won't draw attention to myself, will sit in the back........................but.........I WILL smile becaue all we can do is the best we have with what we've got....................today.

    I think he put a hex on himself when he stated love was a lie.

    I love weddings, and I always cry like a sap because I believe in love!!

      I will NOT cry. I don’t think. I’m pretty sure. I think. It is NOT my intention to do so.

        It’s never my intention, either – it’s just something embarrassing that always happens to me!!

          How weird is it we think crying is embarrassing?

          April 20, 2017
          1. Bettymom

            I don’t know, but I’m always terribly embarrassed when I cry, even when I’m all alone!!

              Well……………………….I’m NEVER embarrassed to cry when I am alone, but, in front of people? when we know EVERYONE does it? Well, obviously we are all delusional about some things in life.

    If we didn’t have our various illusions about life, there would be so many of us at the funny farm that there wouldn’t be enough people left to guard us all!

      Exactly. So………………..Guess I’ll keep having mine and being me until they cart me away with butterfly nets and a straitjacket. I was raised knowing most people are crazy as hell.

        One thing about getting so heavy: I’d be amazed if they could find a straitjacket that would fit me!!

          ha ha ha ha ha…………….well…………..there’s always duct tape.

    Ugh. I hadn’t thought of duct tape. I was just hoping for lots and lots of drugs. On the bright side, though, there are now lots and lots of different patterns and widths of duct tape. People make clothes out of them, so I guess I could have a straitjacket with lots of sticky plaid holding it together.
