I chew chew choose U


It’s been quite a while since I’ve put “pen to paper”; life has presented some remarkable situations in which I am forced to challenge my own identity and beliefs. Oh who the fuck am I sugar-coating this for?!? Sigh. The after-effects of political correctedness. 

I am aware that I am a very privileged and spoiled individual, and although the shit that I wade through at times may seem endless, it is not. It’s all like a flash in the pan, like those two little sausages-one goes ‘pop’ and the other goes ‘bam’.

I often wish I had some sort of logical explanation for the unexplainables of my existence; for now I just go through the (e)motions as they swell up, knowing that somehow the end result will be a bigger, badasser version of “Me”.

I choose to change my life and to mold it in to what I really want it to look like. That means a lot has shifted and will continue to do so, both in and ex-ternally.  {Sing for the lion and lamb.} I took a bbq lighter to a 13-year relationship because I choose not to be silent about abuse in all its ibs-infested manifestations. That was a mouthful. Cheque please.

Kids, don’t Try this at home.

I am also done with apologizing for mistakes I haven’t made, or for even making mistakes. Period. I mess up, All. The. Time. It’s part of growth, it’s part of the human experience. The road to self actualization and all that jazz. Meh. Or it could be a big scam. Who really knows? All I know is that choosing change is essentially choosing self-love. And love is contagious- so put that in your cedar pipe and smoke it.

In the end it’s all chicken nuggets, no matter where you eat, so you may as well throw some honey garlic sauce on this mother effin’ thing we call life and dig in like a wild boar. I’ll take mine with a lifetime supply of sriracha, please and thank you.

Yours in good faith,,,

This is my method of public speaking without the embarrassment of getting up on stage and realizing that I’m not wearing pants.
