Sometimes you just gotta put your foot down. Sometimes life just kicks you in the ass and you don’t know how to get back up. You don’t know if it’s even worth it to get back up. When you feel all the anger and bitterness you’ve been holding down all those years. Those pent up repressed feels boil over and you mind begins to erupt into a nuclear meltdown. It seems like nothing is there but anger. All you feel is angry. All you see is that hot bright red flash that constantly taunts. The red flash starts to develop a voice. It says you aren’t good enough. It say that you deserve all the bad shit that is happening to you. It says that you weren’t smart enough to stop the pain. You fight the voice but it does not goes away. In fact the more you fight the louder the voice gets. Until finally the voice becomes a roar, screaming at you more and more. The shouting becomes so loud that you can no longer hear you’re own voice. The shouting is your voice. Eventually it subsides, but that doesn’t mean that voice is gone. No, it’s just hiding, waiting to remind you of all your insecurities and failures. To remind you of how you screwed up time and time again. To make you carry that guilt until it crushes you.
But guess what? That’s bullshit. When that voice comes back you put your foot down and crush it’s toes. You are good enough, even if no one else thinks so. You did make mistakes, but everyone does. No one is perfect. You drop that guilt and never look back because you know a man is worth more than the sum of his mistakes. And when that’s all done you look yourself directly in the mirror and say “I am important. I matter and no one can that away from me.” You repeat it until that voice is reduced to less than a whisper. Sometimes you just gotta put your foot down.
Hard work is a choice, but entitlement is not an option
Challenge Activity: Make your own birthday, anniversary, valentines or celebration cards
Date Completed: 2/7/15
Summary: Yesterday my good friend Becca and I decided to make paper hearts for our residents. Since we are both CA’s we had access to a variety of colored construction paper and crafting tools. To make the valentines hearts you just fold a piece of paper into fourths. After the paper is folded take a pencil and trace one half of a heart. Next you carefully cut along the line you traced and bam! You just created four tiny valentines!
This after I ate 9 or 10
Also since my birthday is coming up soon (Feb 10) Becca surprised me with a plate of brownies! How awesome is that?!
… And so our blogging hero lies on the rock earth battered and beaten. On the precipice of death he could feel his consciousness slip away and suddenly a vision came onto him. A voice began to speak to him:
“Mortal, I will revive you in full capacity if you heed my wish”.
The voice was booming, commanding.
“In return Life Blog shall seek out Guest Bloggers from all the scattered lands”
And so our blogging hero began looking for Guest Bloggers from all over the world. The End.

I’m taking a break from blogging for the rest of this month. I just need to take a step back from blogging to handle some personal affairs. Life Blog will still be fresh with content every week. I have scheduled about to 2 post to upload every few days this month. Just wanted to let you guys know and see you again in about month!
P.S. Life Blog now has a Facebook page.
Here is a bunch of random photos I amassed into one big gallery. Enjoy!

Walking through a graveyard
Saw this in the graveyard and thought it looked cool

Stalking the local wildlife
As if public bathrooms weren’t sketchy enough
That’s pretty scary, especially for a children’s ride
