JAY’S RAMBLES IN BITS & PIECES

Today is my random rambling in case something speaks to you.

I have wonderful memories that POP! unexpected into my mind with a BAM and I try to remember who, when, what, and where. A puzzle game with my brain!   It’s fun!  And you can do it without brain strokes.  Free of charge to all genders.  Haha.  I call it “Bits and Pieces.” 

FIRST Ramble-  My niece Deb Prince Kroll writes a wonderful blog titled “unexpectedincommonhours “ and she posts her photos of nature in the world surrounding her life in the foothills of the mountains of North Georgia Blue Ridge mountains and finds matching quotations. I am using one of the quotes that applies to my brain puzzles. 

How strange it is, sometimes, which conversations or events stay with us while so much else melts as fast as April snow.” — Marlena De Blasi

Second ramble-

“She was damn happy to be alive.

She didn’t have millions in the bank.

She wasn’t at the top of the

corporate ladder and still her deepest

dreams.. though she pursued them

hadn’t yet come true. But still 

she was damn happy to be alive.

She had people to love; a roof over her head;

she had all the essentials for living;

water, gas electricity, food;

she could appreciate the flowers blooming,

the sun beaming and the skies blessing.

She had good books to read. 

She spoke to the moon at She was damn happy to be alive.

She didn’t have millions in the bank.

She wasn’t at the top of the

corporate ladder and still her deepest

dreams.. though she pursued them

hadn’t yet come true. But still 

she was damn happy to be alive.

She had people to love; a roof over her head;

she had all the essentials for living;

water, gas electricity, food;

she could appreciate the flowers blooming,

the sun beaming and the skies blessing.

She had good books to read. 

She spoke to the moon at night.

She often had a good sing in the shower.

And she lived her life with a touch of her own style.

The world’s mindless noise went quiet at the 

sight of her relentless joy. ~”.  S.C. Lourie

Third Ramble – This Easter, whether you are a religious person or not, I invite you to talk about resurrection. If you are one who has failed again and again to overcome addiction of any kind, resurrection says, “Life is worth trying again.”

If you are an outcast, facing rejection and ridicule, resurrection says, “It gets better.”

If you are someone who has played the game for so long that you cannot even imagine life beyond the charade, resurrection says, “Only when a seed falls into the ground like an acorn and can it become a tree or bear great fruit.”

In the end, resurrection is not about the walking dead; it is about those who have found new life.  The one that I find speaks to me is that I played the game for so long, that I must be reborn to bear great fruit. OOPS. “Figuratively-speaking” because I feel like I have hit rock bottom and am finding new life. 

Donna Ashworth words speak to me……

“ROCK BOTTOM

When you hit rock bottom, 

you know,

this is as low as you can get.

There is some comfort in this knowing,

that you’ve seen the deepest, 

the worst, of your depths.

You have some choices whilst you sit there, 

smashed against the cold hard surface.

You can stay, 

or you can see this is a base.

A base to build upon.

A solid, strong floor your new castle will rise up from.

If you are really clever, 

you can make rock bottom the surface,

that you build upon for ever more.

And you need never touch the rock again,

because you made yourself some stairs to climb up, 

should you ever fall. [Can I use a cane?]

The thing about rock bottom is that it’s hard,

And beautiful buildings are made of that.”

Donna  Ashworth

Fourth Ramble

“You get what you’re willing to accept. 

If you want to break multi-generational dysfunction, YOU will become the problem. 

You’ll receive all manner of distortion, projections, and history rewrites. (and in my case, made-up conspiracy theories)  This is especially true if you’re dealing with those who are suppressing guilt.  No matter. If you really want change, you have to stand solid, continue to own your truth, and not argue.  It’s not open for argument.

Allow the belittling mockery.   It’s just designed to draw you back in for more. 

Stand tall in yourself, you are learning to love and respect yourself. 

You’ll find some others like you.

You’re not alone……

And you’re awesome!”

FIFTH RAMBLE –

“You may not have noticed, but nothing is normal.

Yes restrictions are lifting and yes we are taking back our lives again.

But that feeling of ‘it being over’, never came.

Perhaps it never will.

Because we are different now.

Forever changed by the last two years, there really is no going back.

Some lost health, loved ones, some lost legacies, business.

Some lost their carefree beliefs that the world is a safe place.

But we all gained too.

We gained some time with ourselves that we may never have taken.

We gained a perspective shift, we know that life is a gift.

And it’s that we must focus on going forward.

You may not have noticed that nothing is normal.

Because you’re different now, 

your normal has shifted.”
