A-typical pregnancy

Everything does not have to fall into the “norm” for it to be the same.  Take giving birth.  Yes, when one thinks of giving birth, images of a female bringing forth life is what typically comes to mind.  Me and my kind give birth in a different way.  We are creators of a different type of life and the life we create may not be able to do all the same things as the life typically thought of being birthed and that’s ok with us.

I saw a FB post about everyone having a hustle and while that may be true, we humans hustle things on a daily basis.  People, typically, will post about things that are important to them.  If people have children, often they will post about their children and that, IMHO is their hustle.  Not a bad thing but I try not to judge people on what they post because if it’s not appealing to me, I really don’t have to read it.  My child does not look like yours.  It does not walk, talk, breathe in the typical sense but it is nonetheless my child.  It developed in me, is part of me, most often the best part of me because it did not come from me, just as your child did not come from you.  I know people often don’t mean anything by it but that is why we must be careful with our words.  Words have power and they relay, more often than not, underlying feelings that we dare not or choose not to say.

Life, IMHO, is a hustle because we’re all trying to get somewhere, BAMN.  For you, it’s going to look different than what my BAMN looks like but respect the fact that many are trying.  Some may be fly by night but the majority of us are pretty serious about our hustles.  Posting is sharing and I think that’s why FB was created.  If one has to “complain” about things posted on their timeline then there are steps one can take to remedy that situation.

My words may give the impression that I’m sensitive but parents usually are sensitive, overly protective of their kids.  My kid looks different than yours but I love them nonetheless.

What ails ya?

Do people still use the library?

Hypocrisy is not lost on politicians.  Us regular folk can be guilty of it as well, take yours truly, for example.  Yes, I know, I was just as shocked as you are.  As well as I know and understand the basic rule of life, maintaining the consistent practice of it is the bane of my existence.

I have to chuckle at myself (me chuckle, not you!) because I see my behavior and I can hear and feel the ultimate “Really”/side-eye from Jesus and it is those moments when I’m glad I’m not really in charge.  Sensitive people (overly sensitive people) should never be in charge of something like that.  We might not express it but our body language (and all things unspoken) screams “How dare you!”  No passive aggression just pure aggressive dismissal, passively.  Does that even make sense to me?  lol

See, I tend to stop talking when people upset me.  I do this to prevent my mouth from running in the moment.  Like Vince Lombardi, I’m highly emotional.  Quick to tears, quick to praise and given that tendency, it’s best to not say anything, for however long that may be.  I get why others don’t get it.  I had someone ask me – “What does that accomplish?”  For you, nothing, for me, lots.  I don’t do it for you, I do it for me.  Appreciate that fact that I may like/respect you enough to stop talking and resume at a later date.  Sure, I can oblige you and keep talking but experience has taught me that that particular road is best left untraveled.

I know it can be mind-boggling for most but only to those who don’t know me.  Those who do, know, eventually, I’ll come around.  No, this isn’t the most adult approach (did I give you the impression I was an adult?? 🙂 ) but it works.  If it doesn’t work for you well, I’m glad I’m not tasked with the responsibility of judging and I’m glad you aren’t either.

I know what ails me, and I work on it everyday.  Most of the time, I do it in silence. This is about as loud as it gets.  Shhhh!
