0cd2c65ebe4c4c2ebdc8beb023df3df1It’s interesting how one day you’re picking up pieces of heartache, then the next (well…not LITERALLY the next day) you’re drowning it out with distractions.  What?  You wallow in your self-pity and emotional turmoil?  Nah.  Pull up your thong (cuz I don’t do the granny panties and nor should you) or your boxer briefs (cuz, yes please) and get over it.

Life doesn’t stand still.  I have to keep it in motion so I can filter out the stuff that makes me sad.  Some may say that this is an avoidance technique and that one day all the unaddressed sadness will come crashing down on me…And I say BS.  Because I’ll continue to address it…only I’ll not let it control or dictate my life.  Everyday it will get a little easier…I’ll give sadness/heartache the love it deserves…then I’ll fucking obliterate it with sarcasm, wit and LIFE.  That’s what strong women do.  They keep on keeping on.  There are no fairy tales here.  There are just human beings with complicated emotions who have a choice to “seize the day” or stand frozen in time.  And I hate the cold so freezing is NOT on my list of things to do, ever.

So, the proverbial “you” do have a choice.  The choice is to take steps forward and try to not let happiness pass you by, or choose to stay grounded in hopes that what you had wished would have happened might come to fruition if you just don’t move.  The problem with the latter is that it won’t.  It will never come to fruition if you force it.  Because the result of force is fake.  My grandpa used to recite to me a saying about how “you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink…”  And I subscribe to that philosophy every day when shit doesn’t go my way.   We’re not God/Universe/Allah/Buddha…and I’m pretty sure that all those other-worldly entities would “teach” us to let go…because they’ve all said it in one form or fashion.  Case in point:

“In the end, these things matter most:  How well did you love? How fully did you live?  How deeply did you let go?” ~Buddha

“Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you.” Proverbs 4:25-27

“What is meant for you, will reach you, even if it is beneath two mountains.  And what isn’t meant for you, won’t reach you, even if it is between your two lips.” ~Quran

“Surrender to what is.  Let go of what was.  Have faith in what will be.” ~someone you nor I know.

And I don’t know what the fuck the Universe says…I think it just laughs and tells you to suck it up.  Fair enough.  That’s what the other entities basically said, too.

Bottom line – Life is WAY too short.  Waking up in regret and fear of losing is not a feeling I ever want and I suspect the proverbial “you” don’t either.  So, on with life I continue.  Join me, will you?

  1. I can definitely comment on one thing, and that is, you are real. If I were to meet you in person, I would get exactly what I see. Nothing more, nothing less. There wouldn’t be any hidden agendas, nor different intentions from what I would see right in front of me. That trait is all the more diminishing these days, especially in the direction in which society is moving. People get deceived, and even hurt due to the fact that there seems to be some hidden agenda, and the intentions of a person may not seem to be what appears at face value. The true intentions of the heart may be hidden. In most cases, for selfish, individual gains.

    Most learn this trait at an early stage in life. Looking at kids nowadays, they even attempt to manipulate their parents in order to get what they want. Of course, they not know what they do, however, what seems to be an innocent child is actually a scheming child with an attempt to deceive. The true intentions of the heart can be well hidden behind soft and innocent eyes, even behind the eyes of a child.

    In your strong, powerful comments, and even in and through your sarcasm, you are real. That’s right. True gangsta. Like a Boss. The real deal. That’s who you are. The real deal.

    1. Thank you so much. You are too right – what you see IS what you get. I pride myself on my honesty, even though the brutality of it sometimes is too much for people…But I don’t have kidd gloves. I think my dog ate them.
      And you are so correct re kids these days. I am certainly appalled when kids feel they need to ‘hide’ or ‘sensor’ themselves for personal gain. I’m a big believer in authenticity and raising kids to LIVE authentically. Thank you for your kind, supportive words. Means a great deal to me.


  2. Thank you for honesty. Your posts are actually therapeutic. You may sound mean and blunt, being inconsiderate of what people may think or feel, but nothing beats straightforward honesty with genuine words.

  3. To intothewest01….Although sometimes some of Regan’s post have a certain tone that may sound mean or blunt, I promise if you heard her in person…Her sincerity is what comes through the most. I often wish she would video the posts for just the reason you mentioned. She is 100% exactly as she portrays herself…strong, beautiful, honest, loving, playful, articulate and has no problem with expressing what she means or feels…she is one of a kind…..and I’m super proud to call her my daughter.
