All Gas, No Brakes

The Class of 2021 Wildcats.

My oldest and first nephew graduated high school this past weekend. ❤️💙 Can’t believe how much they have grown!!! Many blessings and wishes for them both! May their hearts always be filled with love and joy and the intent to do good in this world!

And just like that… as my nephew says… all gas, no brakes! Here they come!

Get it babies! I love you’s sooo much!

New Bedside Reads

New Bedside Reads… Accompanied by Grandpa Guarino’s Jesus and St. Anne.

I’m super excited about all of these!

Meggan Watterson is one of my favorite authors and Theologists! I read Mary Magdalene Revealed and it has been my top favorite adulthood read! And so I am sure Reveal with be just as good!

Started Greenlights by Matthew McConaughey earlier this week! I love a good memoir type book! Although he calls his book more of an “Approach Book” or “Play book”… I feel like there will be, and already are from what I’ve already read, some really good insights to life.

The last two books are guilty pleasures… love stories by Beatriz Williams and Colleen Hoover… who doesn’t LOVE a good love story?

And Jerry Seinfeld… well… he reminds me of my dad… and laughing.., so naturally I picked it up!

New Gems 💎

A bunch of random thoughts:

The year started off with high energies and intentions…

coupled with tumultuous happenings beyond our earthly control…

In the midst of grieving… silence sometimes is the only mode…

Tears come and go… but the release is sweet…

I’m not entirely sure what to think anymore…

Grieving a friend… then learning news that your sister has breast cancer…

For what it’s worth… I feel hopeful for my sister… her, grieving over the loss of her breasts in a double mastectomy this past Monday…

The road is long… and there is still so much to get through…

A witness to loss… yet, an advocate for the good that comes with…

There is good in everything… I know this to be true…

I bought these new gems because I thought they were pretty… they are pretty…

Druzy quartz… for positivity and healing…

To strengthen the spirit… to amplify the body’s natural healing…

Relieving anxieties… and promoting positivity…

Debra Ann

It’s been a week and two days since you’ve been gone… and it still feels so very unreal. I keep thinking you’ll walk through the door at work… with your hair and nails done… and your earrings…. you’d probably beat my ass for posting this pic of you without your hair done… but I would have told you you looked pretty regardless! I always thought it was magical you went on Fridays to get your hair done. But I post this pic… bc it’s of me and you, and we sent this snap to my mom in Virginia so that you could say hey to her. You two… the Scorpio Birthday buds… 🦂 Debra, I love you so much… and I know you know that… bc we told each other nearly every day “I love you.” My heart is sad. I lost one of my most favorite coworkers of all times. I remember the day you came in for your interview and I fell in love with you immediately. I knew in my heart that we needed you. I still need you. Ten years I had the pleasure of knowing you. Ten years your smile and sassiness lit up the office. Outreaches with you were always my favorite… you’d always start the day saying “Let’s get it poppin”… and we’d bust our asses seeing a million patients… we’d go to get food after and you’d always want your hamburger or sandwich or chicken sandwich cut in half. I always laughed at your detailed orders. And your gospel music in the morning… you were such a devoted gospel singer for over 25 years and your heart was devoted to Jesus. I feel okay and at peace to know that you are finally in your righteous place in Heaven with your precious Lord Jesus. Life here on Earth will miss you like fucking crazy. I love you Debra Ann. Come visit me in spirit form! 😘

Change is the ONLY constant.

Change is the only constant.

When you are in the midst of an awakening you start to question things…

Popular beliefs start to show their chin hairs… and the things you were once told to believe will all of a sudden not make sense anymore.

When you let go of who you thought you should be… you begin to realize who you really are.

It’s fuggin’ painful at times… and your greatest fear will be disappointing others because it has been beat into your head that you should be a certain way…

Deep down you know that you are changing… and the surrender to that change is going to be BIG & SCARY… but ohhh so worth it.

A bit of comforting advice… It’s actually not as scary as you think it will be.

You’ll wake up one morning with the will to live life on the next level… an up-level…

And you will no longer say… that’s the way we have always done it…
