'Butt' What?

Butt' What
By Amy Carothers (A little bit of  my crazy poetry to get through the pain in the 'ass' day!

I look in the mirror and I say what
The heck happened to my butt
I workout and eat right
But it’s still hanging there despite

I go to the fridge and it’s bare
As I don’t trust to keep anything in there
Guys get distinguished as they get old
But girls get the ‘bum’ rap I’m told

So to the gym this girl goes
Hopefully to get into those skinny clothes
Running around, no end in sight
Until those jeans, aren’t so tight

One day the mile will reach its end
But alas chocolate you’re a toxic friend!

That Doesn’t Sound Like You…

If that’s true, who am I? It such a strange thing being judged by who you were in the past. To quote a regarded musical ‘how do you measure a year in the life?’
As the years go by friendships, marriages and people change. Who you were in high school, college or even at the beginning of a courtship is not who you are twenty years later. I think that’s the problem with a lot of marriages.
People go in expecting their lives to stay the same and are disappointed by the changes in their partners. The real test of a relationship is that as time evolves you grow together. If not, you will grow apart, it’s inevitable.

Travel marks to your life, like stamps in a passport by imprinting and enriching your experiences. By visiting a country and obtaining firsthand knowledge you’re challenging your own misconceptions. It’s very easy to argue with a closed door as no one is in your face pushing against your opinions and beliefs. By taking the chance in opening, you’re facing a backlash of thoughts unlike your own.
There’s nothing wrong with change, if you’re still the same person you were at 15 as at 32, you haven’t really grown in life. Meet life head on and challenge the unknown.

Time to Say Goodbye?

Saying Goodbye
A friend of mine just unexpectedly lost her father this morning; with no warning he was gone! Since she left, I’ve felt so shell shocked, in such disbelief that someone so young could pass.
I have a tempestuous relationship with a certain member of my family and although we love each other have a hard time communicating. Some say that we’re too much alike especially in our temperaments. Hey, I’m an Aries after all! ;)
But in all seriousness, just thinking that I’ve never made things completely right with him terrifies me. If something God forbid was to happen would I be able to look back and say that I had done everything in my power to change things? I'm saddened to think I haven't but figuring out how to is another matter.
Life is fleeting; we don’t know how much time we have and once it’s gone, we can never get it back.
