FAITH FORWARD FRIDAY: DRAMA

I know something about drama. Hell, I know a great deal about drama. The last few years have been DRAMA filled, at every turn. The tides have turned and the drama has considerably subsided in my life. I am moving in a place of less stress, less worry and less drama. I choose to leave drama behind. I choose Love.

There is always stuff going on that can pull you out of your element, your place of peace. There are so many opportunities to get caught up in stuff that really does not need my input. However I am human. If you bring drama to my friends, you are bringing drama to me. I have not run from a fight since I was 7 years old when this girl named Sylvia chased me home. My Mother and our neighbor Miss Channie made me go back outside and face that girl. My Mother said: you can either fight that girl and stop running, or you can come in the house and get you butt whopped by me! I opted to stand up and face Sylvia. I never had a problem from her again. As a matter of fact we grew up to be half-way decent friends.

I never ran from anyone again. I have done a great many things that I am not proud of. Some are very public and documented, some not and I hope never see the light of day. But if they do, I can take it and own it. I own my shit. I am not afraid of anyone or anything. If you bring me SH I will give you IT. Don't start SH and there will be no IT!

Today is a new day. The drama that was yesterday is long gone. There are new challenges ahead. There are new discoveries to be found and love to be made. I am opting for making love.

I am opting for making love.

1000 Things I want To Do Before I Die:
51. Sit with My Beloved as the sun sets over the amazon.
52. Be the woman the magician saws in half...LOL!
53. Have Champagne named after me!
54. Hike through the Redwood Forest.
55. Race Car Drive: NASCAR and Formula.

I agree and its so easier said though than done for me... some people just know how to push your buttons and disrupt your peace... I am working on ignoring them but its do hard when you have always been know to fight first and talk later.

Hye Sister EB.

I feel you! I have been in that space. But I have learned that I get to control ME. Fuck whatever else somebody brings to me by way of drama. I can get down or not. But the choice is always mine. Some asses have to be kicked...just on principle. And some that are clearly not worth it...no matter how much "they" "he" pops off at the mouth.

I choose love.
