I like living…..

“I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.” ~ Agatha Christie


I told my mother just today that I’ve found that since I found out I had cancer (almost 3 years ago) and how BLESSED I was by God in that (believe it or not) I heard his voice whisper to me that yes, it was cancer, and it was malignant, but that I would be fine.  It’s funny looking back, at how blithely I sauntered through the entire process so my family wouldn’t worry about me.  Was it something I ever thought I’d get???  NOPE  We always said that our family didn’t have cancer anywhere (forgetting that my dad died young and we didn’t know a lot about his family)… SURPRISE…. I got it anyway… didn’t smoke, didn’t overly drink, wasn’t over weight…. etc. I thought I had taken pretty good care of myself… Ha… LOL  (Thank God for AFLAC Cancer Insurance.  It has saved me financially and the rates are cheap and never change)

Anyway, sorry about that diversion, I have noted that since the cancer, I tend to say what’s on my mind…. not to try to make anyone else change their mind, but I just got tired of trying to be the kind of person everyone wanted me to be.  I’m gonna be honest, so don’t ask me something if you don’t want to know my true opinion. I find that I get easily frustrated if I have to tell intelligent people (supposedly) something more than twice and they still act like they haven’t heard a word I’ve said.  Maybe I’ve just become intolerant of stupidity. Stupid people are those who are suppose to be intelligent, but CHOOSE to act like an idiot (or as we use to say in the South idget – which means idiot…LOL)

So, when I post political information I’ve found… I do so not to try to influence your opinion, but to open your mind so that you might, hopefully, realize that the world is NOT what the Media makes it out to be….

Children aren’t born evil (I don’t think?) but they LEARN hate from others… Just my opinion..


Blowing you all hugs and kisses!  Have a wonderful week! Make a POSITIVE difference in someone’s life!

    We never like to go through the struggle, but it will sure teach a lesson or two if we are listening. I love your honesty, and a lot of other things. :o)

      Thanks James…. I know you know what I mean, and yes…. if we will stop complaining long enough to listen and think about things, we will find the intended lesson…. most times… some times it comes later)

    Great post! It’s good that you’re honest. You’re being yourself and thats good, if they don’t like your answers than they shouldn’t ask! That’s what I always answer. I’ll save you the reactions I get when I say that! 😉

    you’ve gained

    so much wisdom

    during your path


    I appreciate and respect

    your rationale

    about your

    political posts


    you are honest

    about sharing

    about with your information

    not about “changing” people’s minds


    open ears, eyes, hearts

    lead one to making

    their own choices

    Keli…I am so with you on the openess of what is on your mind. When I turned 50 a lightbulb was turned on and you can’t go back. Life is just too short now and you finally get it. What is frustrating when others in your age bracket don’t have that ahh moment yet…Sending blessings to you today.

    “idget” – I’m gonna start using that! Haha.

    I think it’s good that you’re honest. If the person can’t handle that and was expecting something else, they shouldn’t be asking for opinions.

    Thanks for sharing that. I’ve noticed that as I get older I don’t suffer fools nearly as much as I used to. Hmmm, that sort of coincides with my relocation to Texas…maybe it is a southern thing after all 😉

    ” I just got tired of trying to be the kind of person everyone wanted me to be”…… wow…. I sure relate there. I decided the same thing for myself when I had leukemia 2x… it’s like life is too damn short to not be honest! If you cannot be authentic, then you are not you! Excellent message and stay true to yourself my friend. 😉

    I like living too! I like this post. And yep isn’t it funny how those big ole life events take down some of our social walls. I often find I have to reign it in a bit in fear of pissing everybody off lol. I hope your well and your mom is getting settled.
    😀 big smiles
