I have an addiction. I need it, I have to have it. I wanna share it with everyone.....even my kids. Shit! Does that make me a bad Mom?
The first time I knew I had a problem was when I found myself telling everyone I knew, "In life, God gives to the givers and takes from the takers". I was on a big "karma's a bitch" kick and this was WAY awesomer said!
Yes, I am addicted to Rev Run's Words of Wisdom. They are my little life's lessons....inspirational quotes....whatever.
My Mom has one of those little quote things on her desk from which each day she draws "inspiration". It always says something like "They are my inspiration, these, the stanch, the skyward - lifting trees" (this is really today's! I asked her!).....anyhow, what in the sam hell does that mean? How does that relate to ANYTHING in my life? How does it relate to anything in ANYBODY'S life???
So today I signed up to receive Rev Run's Words of Wisdom daily so I can get my fix. I don't have to go in search for my fix, my fix will come directly to me. Let's just hope it's not some bogus ass site, because if I get cheated on my fix, I'm gonna be PISSED!
If you don't wanna become an addict, stop here, because what follows is just an example of the awesomeness of Rev Run's Words of Wisdom....."What places are you trying to fit in that keeps dissing you? Who are you pursuing that keeps ignoring you??? Think about this…. Who has been kind towards you??? Where has favor flowed for you for the past few years??? (Remember this classic principle!) GO WHERE YOU’RE CELEBRATED… NOT WHERE YOU’RE TOLERATED!"
That's what I'M talkin' about! I totally just gave myself a high five!
No, this is NOT about YOU. As I re-read that awesome ass quote, it hit me that when you read it (and I know you will) you may think that it's all about you . Nope, it's not. I don't feel the need to make make my case.
When I first read this, I took the positive part out of it...go where you are celebrated....not the negative....the whole dissing and tolerated part, but after re-reading it, I did see how a negative person would see it and how you may think it was pointed at you. Nope. In the famous words of Carly Simon, "You're so Vain".
