>Why apologize?   Leave a comment

>Sometimes we say things that we regret. As my dad always said we forget to “engage the brain before placing the mouth in gear”. Someone hurts us, and we get defensive instantly. We clamp up, and then say things we wouldn’t dare say if we were hugging them. I’ve done it myself. Opened my mouth and crap would come out and hurt the very person I love.
But thats were apologies come into play. Saying “I’m sorry” means saying I still love you and I messed up. It takes a strong person to walk away and to forget a friendship. But it takes a much more stronger person to apologize, and to mend it. If we never apologized, and never meant it.. we wouldn’t have very many friends left.

>What do we really need in life?   Leave a comment

>We all need to be loved.. to be held and appreciated. To be noticed and thought of. It’s a need for humans that no animal has. It’s said that humans have 5 basic needs in order to survive. Water, food, shelter, warmth, and love. Some may say that you don’t even need love. That you can survive without it and keep on living a normal life.

Well.. it’s been proven that depression is caused by a lack of love. Nobody likes the loneliness. People can get so depressed and sink so low that they feel unwanted, worthless and then they decide it’s not even worth living. That since nobody cares, it’s easier to end it so they don’t feel the pain anymore. They try to end their lives to end the pain. Then there are the ones that hurt so bad, that they can literally be sent to the hospital. “Broken Heart Syndrome” is a real issue surprisingly.

>I know it’s rough sometimes   Leave a comment

>Can’t sleep. Got some friends on my mind. I mean I should be thinking bout my job, getting my car tuned up and ready for another inspection, or worrying about Conner betting better. But instead I got a kiddo on my mind. I was bored and started editing some pics as I always do, and it occurred to me that she rarely smiles
 ๐Ÿ˜ฆ   Out of the dozens of pictures I’ve seen of her I can probably count on one hand how many pics she’s smiled in.

I dunno…. It’s probably dumb because they’re not my kids, but I guess thats why I worry bout them. They got alot of crap on their plate already, and then there’s the relationships, school, problems at home…etc. I can only imagine how it hurts sometimes, because adults got thru the same thing. All I want to do is just give her a hug… that’s all.. nothing more… nothing less. Just to let her know that I’m here for her. Anyways, gonna try to head down Thursday night and bring Trudy up to see Julia. Maybe go out Friday for ice cream or pizza or something ๐Ÿ˜€

>Earthquake and Tsunami hits Japan   Leave a comment

>Friday, 3/11 Japan was hit by an earthquake registering 8.9, with a tsunami quickly follwing. This is the 5th largest earthquake since 1900. It been noted that they only had 15-20 minutes to evacuate villages and towns before the tsunami hit. Thousands have been reported missing and feared dead. In one city alone almost 9,500 are missing. It’s so very sad. My prayers are for the Japanese

>Materialistically; why do we always need to have more?   Leave a comment

>Why is it that we can never be happy with what we have? We always seem to want more. The new and improved is offered to us and we grab it without thinking another second. It’s like mankinds history with materialism has been filled with pride, greed, and selfishness. We can never be satisfied with what we have and we even have lost the our perspective on the differences between our wants and our needs. I believe the media and commercialism has a lot to do with this. This is what drives the competitiveness in mankind overall. Businesses depend and thrive on this. Everything has to be bigger and newer otherwise it’s not to our appeal and will not last.
