Dear God,
I want to thank You for what you have already done.
I am not going to wait until I see results or receive rewards, I am
thanking you right now.
I am not going to wait until I feel better or things look better, I am
thanking you right now.
I am not going to wait until my financial situation improves, I am going
to thank you right now.
I am not going to wait until I get promoted at work or until I get the
job, I am going to thank you right now.
I am not going to wait until I understand every experience in my life
that has caused me pain or grief, I am going to thank you right now.
I am not going to wait until the journey gets easier or the challenges
are removed, I am thanking you right now.
I am thanking you because I am alive.
I am thanking you because I made it through the day’s difficulties.
I am thanking you because I have walked around the obstacles.
I am thanking you because I have the ability and the opportunity to do
more and do better.
I’m thanking you because FATHER, YOU haven’t given up on me.

Amen, and Amen.

..I’d much rather be in full concert, while in a moving car, windows down,  & hands grasping the air as it passes by. Instead, I’m @ work thinking about not being at work. HA

A glimpse of my attempt to capture my thoughts.
  • People should adopt this mentality: I’ll take care of me, and you’ll take care of you. Then when we’re both ready, we’ll take care of us.
  • The three things I consider vital and cannot live without in a relationship, amongst others, of course, is attention, affection and appreciation. Keep that in mind and I’ll be yours forever, generally speaking.
  • We’re all fucked up in one way or another. Some admit it. Most deny it.
  • Knowing the right thing to do and actually doing it are two completely different things.
  • The youth of today: Instead of taking pleasure in being young, they try to pretend they’re adults; therefore, the pace of growth and development is disrupted. Next thing you know they realize that they forgot to stop and smell the roses.
  • Tonight will be a redbox-night. This is me. Right. Now.
  ” You may not be her first, her last, or her only. she loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She’s not perfect – you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break – her heart. So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze and don’t expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there. “ – Bob Marley

It’s Monday and I’m sitting at my desk wrapping up a few things.. And I thought, hmm… I should do a quick post of exactly what I’m thinking & feeling at this very moment. So here goes…

A few weeks back, I tweeted about not sweating the small stuff and choosing your battles wisely. I truly believe that life, relationships, and certain things are only as hard/complicated as we make them. I was recently sharing my little philosophy on life with SOS, which prompted this quick post, and these lyrics immediately came to mind…. Not only do they describe my current mood but kinda how I choose to live my life… And what better way to describe that than with lyrics by the Commodores(Easy like Sunday morning).. … =)

“I wanna be high ….. so high,
 I wanna be free to know the things I do are right,
 I wanna be free ….. just me , oh baby.

 Cause I’m easy …. easy like Sunday mornin
 It’s why I’m easy ….. easy like Sunday mornin”

Xx, AB
