Three Rules

Well, I learned this the hard way. 

From now on, I’m going to live by “My Rules”. It’s the only way I know that I will not feel like I have these past couple of months. 

1) Don’t lie to me. One way or another, the truth comes out. 

2) Don’t use me. I will do anything and everything I can for you. But when it’s only one-sided and expected… I’ll pass. 

3) When we both agree that we can TRUST each other and you break that trust… you may NEVER get that trust back. 

Might not be the healthiest way to live your life. But I need to start looking out for myself and taking care of myself. 

I am worth having someone, be it family or friend, treat me with the respect that I give them. 

If you can’t handle these rules, then so be it.

The New Adventure

A couple of months ago, I started to make some changes in my life. I’ve only told a few people of what I’m doing. Still a little afraid to say it out loud. 

But, I’m getting close to some major changes in my life. I’m I turning 50 in a couple of weeks. And that got my thinking and doing some things to prepare for the next chapters in my life. 

I’m planning a 50th birthday party for myself (more on that later) and in about 60 days, something major is going to happen. 

It’s a good thing, but for right now, I want to keep it to myself. 

For right now, I’m looking at the as a New Adventure. 

Make it a great day!

Broken Trust

I’ve said it before and I’m getting closer and closer to 100% believing it.

I am more disappointed in myself for telling you that I trusted you.

Trust

I got some good advise from a friend. I’m getting to the point where I’m starting to see it and believe it. I’ve been so stupid!
Let go and let live

What I did is the senerty prayer:

God grant me the serenity 

To accept the things the things I can’t control. Control the thing I can. And the wisdom to know the difference! 

But just let it go and worry about you!! Because that’s all that really matters!!! 

Again, I feel bad for the one I lost trust with and anyone who comes next.
