MIAGD:  Freedom

MIAGD: Make it a great day 

The entire house is being freed of things no longer needed.

It’s amazing how having additional, no longer needed things around the house can serve as anchors.  

People can also be anchors to either assist us when needing to stay on our course, or to weigh us down.  

There is the natural weighing down that happens to all of us at some point or another in our lives. 

Then, there are the toxic, drama-driven folks who weigh us down to depths that can be unhealthy, and or poisonous.

I’ve never understood why we allow the toxic people to pull us down beneath the water’s surface to drown us alongside them.  I have allowed it to happen to me a few times, but never again. 

Just before I began adopting my sons, I felt an embalance in life.  I finally discovered that my ill-health was due to several friends whose toxicity levels had risen far beyond recognition, even comprehension.  When I rowed my own boat to the other side of the pond, I rediscovered the freedom, restored innerself, and buried joy. 

I receive a lot of smacks because folks just don’t like it when I no longer participate in their drama. I am careful to select which shows I wish to attend, and even participate. I am even more in Fattic about which shows I will not attend. 

What I can appreciate most about myself during these matters is that I don’t wear any grudges. Like the quote in the meme says, “you just become irrelevant.”

Harsh?

Perhaps. Even, yes. 
Like one of my favorite artists, Bon Jovi, sings, “it’s my life, and it’s now or never.”

Sometimes, I feel we spend way too much time trying to separate another person’s toxicity from our lives.  A strainer or colander can only hold so much before it begins to become overrun. 

We do not have that kind of time to continually strain other peoples toxicity from our lives. If we continue to attend the dramas staged by others, The time we have to do other things with good purpose are greatly diminished.

Don’t be codependent, or a supporting actor and someone else’s badly written, badly directed, and badly performed drama.

“Life is like an open highway; like Frankie said, ‘I did it my way,’ … it’s my life.”  ~ Bon Jovi

Choose your tickets to dramas carefully, and enjoy the true fellow performers with great passion. 

And, don’t forget to make it a great day!
