Hello! If you haven't noticed, I have been talking about quieting your mind lately ;) The reason is because I think it is very ...

Hey hey! Happy Wednesday! How's your week so far? Mine is swell ;0) Hope yours is too. Did you have a Happy Valentines Day? I sho did. I had three dates, one in the morning, one in the day, and one in the evening. Pretty cool eh? You are probably thinkin' I'ma playah! Not so... The morning date was with my son, the afternoon date was with a BFF, and the evening date was with another good friend.
So this is what happened. My son was in a not great mood, and he was mean to me. My BFF never called me, and my other friend called me 3 hours later than suppose to. WTF??? F as in fudge ;0)
Although I had 3 dates, the first one was cut short, and the second and third flaked. Not nice people.
Now, don't feel sorry for me, I did what I wanted to do yesterday, as I do everyday. Went here, went there, and dilly dallied. Some of my favorite things to do.
Do you have friends that flake on you? I do. It wouldn't be so bad, and I am very understanding, but the last week there was a whole lotta flaking going on plus, not one of them showed up to my son's birthday party. That and yesterday, is probably what set this venting session off.
I have about 13 bestest friends in the world, and out of those 13 I talk to about 4 of them every week. Three of those four have been super flakes. Sure they have flaked before so I know how they are and I am very loving, very kind, and very forgiving.
So, I had to ask myself the question, "Why do I have such flaky friends?" And guess what I came up with?
We allow the people around us to treat us the way they treat us.
This is totally true because I have let my friends flake on me in the past, and I never got mad. Don't get me wrong, I am not mad in the least especially because it's my fault for letting them flake on me.
What am I going to do about it, you ask?
Well, first I am destressing by writing this post, which I love because I am totally venting. I rarely get mad, but I sho do vent, and then I am over it.
I have decided that I have wasted much time waiting on my friends, and sometimes they never show up. Two of my friends are nearly always late, one of these two is at least an hour late, sometimes up to two hours late, and both of them have just not showed up. The third one is late often, leaves me a message on facebook that he/she isn't going to show (great help when you are not on your puter and you are waiting, so it's kind of like he/she just doesn't show), and a lot of times he/she forgets what time we are suppose to meet. I know, I know, I am too tolerant, although some of you will probably call me an idiot. It's okay though, you are entitled to your own opinion.
Some people say that we attract what we are. So, some how some way, I do the same thing, if what they say is true. What I think is, I love unconditionally, even when people flake, I get over it, and still love them.
Back to the wasted much time waiting. This is what I am going to do. Since so many people count on me to help them with their stress, I am going to devote more time to my business by working on my products and services. Many times I meet friends in the day, when I am done working, but I would like to work more than wait more ;0) ha ha ha. It's not really work though, it's my passion and my purpose, and fun. Therefore, I would like to have fun more than wait.
What about you? Can you destress by eliminating wasted time and working on your passion, purpose, and having fun? Can you destress by limiting the friends that have total disregard for your time?
Ahhh... Much better. ~Singing~I feel good now, da da da da da da ;0)
All gone. I let it go. I feel so good by destressing.
Your probably asking, what if your friends read this post? Or your probably saying, I hope your friends read this post. If they do, they do, if they don't they don't. These friends don't really read my posts anyway but they say they do. Supportive friends huh?
But if they do, one will get really mad and not speak to me, another will get offended and pretend like he/she is not, and the third friend will never read this, but they all have their excuses as to why they do what they do.
Eh-em... Just because you have excuses does not mean it's okay to treat someone with disregard. btw... Flaking = disregard.
Moohoohahaha! ~my evil laugh that I do so well~
Thanks for letting me vent. Comment below what you think about it all.
Have a great week. Have fun! Be playful!
