If your parents demanded a refund for your 3rd grade school pictures because they thought they were “ugly”…you might need counseling.

Introducing daily chuckle

It has come to my attention that we are all a wee bit crazy and every single person on this planet could benefit from a little bit of counseling. Problem is most folks don’t know it. So in the Jeff Foxworthy “you might be a redneck style”, I will be posting “daily chuckle” which will encompass all sorts of things including signs that you may need counseling. YOUR WELCOME.

Why I’m here

A friend recently told me, “you seriously need a hobby.” My friend was right. I spent a few days wondering what I could do to pass the time. I like to read, but I already do that. I like crafts, you guessed it, I already do that. I like FB and I already do that. I have also added exercise and mediation to my schedule. But yet, my friend was still right. I need a hobby. My mind moves at 100 miles per minute and I am one of those ADD (or as I like to say, gifted people) who can do multiple tasks all at once and despite how much I acomplish in a day I still have too much down time and find myself over thinking every detail and feeling as if I haven’t quite completed enough. I wondered what I could add to my list of activities. What do I enjoy? What am I good at? The only thing that came to mind was talking. My family says I have been doing it in full sentences since I was 2 years old. No surprise really. So here I am talking to myself for the world to see. I will let you know in advance. That nothing I post here will be posted without experience. I have no PHD, no spiritual grounding, no expert opinion or right to claim such. I merely have experiences. I will ALWAYS change the names to protect the identity of anyone involved for obvious reasons. Some will read my posts and love them, some will read and hate them, but I’m pretty sure once you start reading you wont stop. Unlike most internet personas, this one is real. This is Blog is who I am and will eventually be a big part of who I become. Sit back, relax, enjoy the chaos that is Mylife201, Life beyond the basics.

how to clean your FB friends list

post the following on your facebook satus:


Gentlemen, if you are married or in a relationship and you’re “unhappy” and want to message me for my boss’s phone number to discuss divorce or division of property, by all means, message me.  If you want to message me to vent or ask my opinion, no matter how useless my opinion may be, I have one, so by all means message me.  If you want to message me because you somehow think that I’m sitting around waiting for someone to send me obscene messages, or to get together for drinks, dinner, or a quick fling in a cheap motel, you are wrong and this behavior is not going to fix your “unhappy” relationship, therefore, NO, DO NOT MESSAGE ME.  I understand that this is a “social networking” site but there is a reason why “relationship status” is an option.  If you are determined to continue on your current path, check out Craig’s List Personal posts.  I recently discovered there are no rules there and your behavior is commonly accepted. I’m sure some of you are sweating bullets right about now wondering if I am going to “OUT” you to our mutual friends.  You can wipe your brow and breathe easy. I’m not going to do that because I have no desire to get in the middle of your shit as I have enough of my own to wade through.  Ladies, if your man is a friend of mine and you are curious about whether or not I am talking to him, DON’T message me.  I’m not going to tell you, but I will say that if you even remotely suspect that I may be talking about your guy, I suggest you have a  discussion with him, because this mess starts at home, not on the internet.  By the way, I’m writing this not only on my behalf but on behalf of some of my girlfriends and you know who they are.  Don’t message them either.  Since most of you that I am referring to are not real bright, I’m going to help you out. I recommend you don’t panic and delete me as a friend.  Someone will surely notice and doing so would be akin to standing atop a mountain and screaming to the world that you are an unfaithful douche bag.  So just sit still, stop sweating and stop messaging me. I’m not interested and neither are my friends. Thanks.

If I write a letter to my children, I would steal this man’s words:

“My Dear Son, 

Adversity is not a detour.  It is part of the path. 

You will encounter obstacles.  You WILL make mistakes. Be grateful for both.  Your obstacles and mistakes will be your greatest teachers. And the only way to not make mistakes in this life is to do nothing, which is the biggest mistake at all.  your challenges, if you’ll let them, will become your greatest allies.  Mountains can crush or raise you, depending which side of the mountain you choose to stand on.  All history bears out that the great, those who have changed the world, have all suffered great challenges.  And, more times than not, in time, to triumph.  Abhor victimhood.  Denounce entitlement.  Neither are gifts, rather cages to damn the soul.  Everyone who has walked this earth is a victim of injustice.  EVERYONE.

Most of all, do not be too quick to denounce your suffering.  The difficult road you are called to walk may, in fact, be your only path to success.”   –Unknown author
