Mostly about my struggles and happy bits throughout this journey.
But I wanted today - and I don't know why - to put it down, put it out there something that I pinched from Mary Kay's Facebook. Now i don't have Facebook but there was a link on her great blog God Walked into this Bar and I saw this caption "Don't make excuses for nasty people. You can't put a flower in an asshole and call it a vase."
I am constantly doing that, looking at what I have done wrong to perhaps insight a nasty reaction (this doesn't happen much anymore because I made some decisions early on in my journey to detach myself from stressful people - whether their fault or mine it wasn't important). However there are some people that you can't detach yourself from and that is life. However in life I am now learning so much since not drinking; how to protect myself better, grow up emotionally, create safe boundaries, be a better more open person, be HONEST.
That doesn't excuse others though, and you just can't keep making excuses or excusing the odd nasty one out there - it isn't you ..... it is them. It is their journey. It is their life. If they want to put a flower in their bum - they can, but I will not.
Love to everyone
Added some photos of the chicken house the kids and I are building :)
