We all have lies which surround us, read the paper. I have reached a new pinnacle in my life and it has me wanting to SOAR every time I feel it surge through me.
Bullshit - you have met your match.
I simply am going to 'call people' on it. From now on... lol Tell me the truth.
I recently did just that, after decades of confusion - I picked up the phone. The caller knew instantly 'who' I was, which was reassuring.. I asked a few questions and came away no longer confused, clearer than ever before as a matter of FACT. Problem solved! Forever! & now I can lay that one to rest. Understanding more, forgiving more and forgetting finally.
It feels fucking fantastic & gave me a new found sense of strength & power & a great conversation with a "you can call me anytime - which was really nice." I'll move on.
Then there are 'little lies'.. kinda fun at times- but then too, with my imagination- they can escalate into 'a frenzy' sometimes good and sometimes bad. So please, don't.
Know I'll check - from now on - I'll ask- whom ever I think might know the answer. Simple.
Wow. Just ask. As soon as possible - so you do not over think/stress.
When someone is in front of you - you can tell sometimes if they are just being cheeky- 'pulling my leg'- that's different from lying- or is it? I ask: are you pulling my leg?
Ivan pulls my leg from time to time.. my pal Jim is also good at it.
With e mail- it's not so easy to tell. No wonder Pinocchio comes to mind!
I just needed to paint! TRUMP has me stumped. I respect Americans have anew president - but I don't like him.. most women don't. HE has triggered something - I'll be the first to admit- I have fucking had it with 'men like him' making remarks like they do & I personally have been forced to deal with them MY ENTIRE LIFE. No more.
We had one such fucking remark not long ago:
We had to renew our personal insurance, Norm & Storm met with the "broker" at a coffee shop a few months back. He wanted to come to our home- but Norm explained I was not well and we don't have people over. When 'he' met them one of his first remarks was:
"Going to renew the policy Norm? More money for Hookers and cocaine.."
Storm was shocked- he told me first - then Norm confirmed. Storm was disgusted. Storm rarely says anything negative about anyone, not this time & he said he was 'like that' the entire meeting and told his dad to 'drop that asshole'. He knew I was at home ill, Norms wife, Storms mom and he says this shit?? I was LIVID.. but I was sick.. it's been months.
Friday, I called head office... I explained (very calmly- thank God - it's been a few months) what happened and "IF they do not get our policy off that pigs hands I will call the papers."
I won't name him, the company formerly Penncorp Canada has recently changed names, HE KNOWS - he called after their visit- and I answered the phone- he knew and I knew instantly- I could hear it in his demeanor - I confronted him, he admitted the remark
his response: "oh .. I was just joking" FUCK that.
Every time we allow these 'Jokes' to go on- YOU know they will- it disrespects women- Mothers, wives, sisters & daughters. THE OTHER half of the population.. Norm is in the dog house - I told him to change it after the incident and just found out last week - we are still paying this disrespectful asshole MONEY. No more.
The company has assure me they will handle the problem & the policy will be turned over to a more professional, respectful broker. I will hear back this week.
'Just joking..' fine.
I'm not joking & I'm NOT giving you a cent/nickel ;) more. There you go.
That is how to do it. Pay attention and do it with your dollar.
I'm back painting Pinicchio today- and guess what- I also painted a MINI study.. I think I'll give one away. He makes me smile. Not nearly finished.. a bird haven I think I need to add 'several' more... we'll see.
Have Faith ...in each other.
