I'm a Mama That Says No To Drama

I hope everyone had a fabulous Sunday!

I was aiming for one but got thrown in the middle of some drama. I don't do drama so it was extremely exhausting for me. I  focus my energy on other things...I don't like the he said, she said stuff, and I grew up with chaos so it doesn't work for me. Also, I'm not a take sides person. I believe in right and wrong. I can't be swayed just because that's where the majority stands. I have my own mind and my own opinion. Plus,
I'm way to old for nonsense - there's bigger issues in the world.

I always resort to what I know best in times like this, and that is pray. I can't fix or change anything that isn't me no matter how much I would like to. I don't have that power. Furthermore, I have found peace and I can't leave it. I love loving my life and those that are in it. I want the best for people. You don't have to be part of my family for me to want the best that life can give you. I genuinely want people to have everything life has to offer them.

No one is perfect, we all have faults, but we all need to have respect for others. We may not agree, but we don't need to break each other. Seriously, can't we all just get along?

Speaking of getting along...Sunday evening the family (minus 2) surprised my granddaughter for her 14th birthday at Texaz Grill for dinner. It was a fun time for her and everyone involved. Happy Birthday Maddie!

Have a fabulous day and stay clear of drama. I guarantee it will suck the life out of you.

Locs

Yesterday I went in for my hair consultation for my locs. It's a little overwhelming trying to decide the size of locs, but this is what I decided.

Tuesday is the big day and I can't wait!

It's interesting though the responses I get from people when I say that I'm getting locs. I've gotten everything from that's interesting to don't you just let your hair get really dirty and don't comb it?

I'm well aware of how most of the world stereotypes black women by their hair. I think I've shared in past blogs how people approach me or don't approach me depending on the style of my hair.

I decided a few years ago that natural was going to be it for me. No more chemical relaxers and no flatiron on my hair daily - I'm just going to do me and people can make all the prejudgements that they want. If you're going to make a decision about me based on my hair I don't want you in my life anyway.      

I decided to grow my hair out due to a bad h…

Have An Open Heart

As I was sorting through pictures this morning I came across pictures of my seven-year-old granddaughter with girls that she met for the first time on a 2 day stay in Prescott. I was drawn to the smiles on their faces and the love in their eyes. They met, accepted each other, and acted as if they had been lifelong friends. Oh, how I had forgotten about the innocence of a child. The color of skin, the size of a body, the structure of a face does not matter. They are ready to accept and love unconditionally until we and society teach them differently.


There was nothing but smiles and laughter as they danced, made beaded jewelry, and ate. They made sure that they all were a part of whatever they were participating in. They cared about each other's feelings and made sure that everyone was having fun and was happy. Why is it that we grow to become so obsessed with appearance and behavior of others that we miss seeing the light or the struggles in others?  We're so quick to judge b…

Words...

Boy am I happy for Monday!

I had a draining Sunday due to a situation that happened and stayed in my thoughts longer than it should have. So today I'm going to write about it and release it.

A gentleman around the age of 60 that had both legs amputated decided that myself and a coworker was his verbal punching bag. As he screamed at us he always managed to say, I'm an amputee in each sentence. We both remained as calm as humanely possible, and I mentally reminded myself as the horrible and hurtful words were spewing out of his mouth - hurting people often hurt people as a result of their unresolved issues. But, what I also was reminded of  how damaging words can be.

I went home and had dinner with my family, relaxed, and did my usual night routine, but I continued hearing his hateful words. I couldn't seem to shake those thoughts. It could be that I hadn't experienced behavior as such after I left home at 18, so I wasn't mentally prepared for it, or he triggered a…
