I forgot!

I forgot about Wordless Wednesday until I was posting the picture below. While not 'wordless' it does nicely sum up where I am in my heart and mind right now. All my life I have hated the phrase 'what doesn't kill you makes you stronger'. Hated it with a passion, more and more as time went on and I collected more and more episodes in my life which fell under the 'not killing me' status. I always used to answer that if I was not strong enough by now, it could just go ahead and kill me. I now know why I have had to be made so strong. Some of it I have shared with you on this blog, and some I have kept private, but I now know that I had to be pretty damn strong to be standing where I am today. When I saw that caption on I Can Has Cheezeburger I laughed, hard, and immediately copy/pasted it as part of my LULZ for the week since I am pre occupied this week and not blogging like a good blogger should. Then I kind of thought about it. That is my new motto. I have made a very definate switch in my outlook over the past several months. I have always been, to my self and my friends, the strong one who could handle any situation. I might need a minute to cry and freak out a little first, but I rally quickly and move into action. I am the one who handles it, who cleans up messes and gives great advice. I am still that person, but I feel now that all of that strength is moving into a place of pro-action, rather than re-action. I am acting, not reacting. I am doing, not dreaming. I am fixing what needs work, and throwing out what doesn't, not complaining about the state of my life. I am not waiting for a crisis to bring out the best in me, I am putting my best out there every day. I am not so foolish to believe I have reached my quota and nothing bad will ever happen to me again, nor am I so stupid to think I have my shit together. What I do know, for sure, is that no matter what happens, I have everything I need to handle it, dust myself off, and keep right on moving forward. Although I had that all along, I guess I forgot and had to be knocked on my ass to remember. The lesson was worth the sore ass!

Yes! I completely agree with that caption (below)! I have been feeling the same way myself, "Go ahead and kill me already!" But lately I have become sick of waiting for more bad stuff to happen to me. Screw that bad stuff! I am going to make something good happen for once! Take THAT bad stuff!

Sorry, got a little passionate there... this is my first venture over to your blog. I saw your button up on Mother Moon's site and thought it sounded like a good place to visit. I am glad I did. I like your magickal tip on the side bar, it is quite nice. I am a newbie to all that is Pagan (as of Mabon) and I love finding blogs that are informational as well as entertaining and thought provoking. Thanks for that!
