Don’t Diss My Dis!
Please by no means read my writing or look at my moniker and think I harbor any dislike or hatred for my upbringing or my life. I love my dysfunction. I believe everyone has it in their life and in their family. I choose to see the humor in mine, and in the lives of those around me. I loved my childhood. It made me “me”.
Yes, there have been parts of my life that have been dark, and even disturbing. But I have lived through them. Those periods or incidents are what have given me my depth and my ability to have empathy with most others. They have given me my humor, my strength, my courage, and my ability to see BS.
I choose to wake up every morning and know to the depth of my soul it will be a great day. I choose to bounce out of bed with a smile on my face and an excitement in my step. I choose to live everyday in the watchful eyes of my children. I see amazing things for them in their lives. And I choose to try everyday to bring love and joy into their worlds; to try to give them depth of character without having to experience the dark and destruction it took for me to get mine.
I want only light and happiness in their lives. I know this is a dream as it is every mother’s dream for their children. I also know some dark will fall into their lives, I would be a fool to think otherwise but I hope that I have imparted the knowledge that I am there as their mom, their confident, their advisor, and one person who will give them unconditional love for all their lives.
My life has been and continues to be an amazing adventure by my choice! I want their lives to be that and so much more.
I have never lived my life in “Safe Mode” but now I am choosing “Legendary”!
So move out of my way, I have dysfunction to play with!
