Jersey Girl, Texan Heart: 5 for Friday

5 for Friday

6:00 AM

1.  Song-Country Grammar Nelly.  Oh yes, I’m bringin’ it back to my high school days.  I heard this the other day and almost died at how old I felt.  I always tell people that when I listen to rap/hip hop I always prefer this genre of music from the south.  I don’t know what it is but I just like their rap/hip hop better than anyone else.

2.  Quote.  “If she’s amazing, she won’t be easy.  If she’s easy, she won’t be amazing.  If she’s worth it, you won’t give up.  If you give up you’re not worthy.  Truth is everybody  is going to hurt you.  You just gotta find the ones worth suffering for.”  I’ve heard this quote plenty of times but for some reason it actually hit me this week.  I actually READ the quote, not just read it, if you know what I mean.  I know, that doesn’t make any sense whatsoever.  I love Bob Marley and his music and the fact that this quote is by him just makes me like him more and I didn’t know that was possible.  It’s true; very short, simple, and to the point.  I pick and chose the people that are worth suffering for.  Some people just get the boot but others I will fight for.  I’ve had a pretty rough time in the past and I won’t go into that whole story yet again but let’s just say I wish I saw this quote back then.  It would have saved me a lot of heartache and disappointment.  You see almost two years ago my life stopped and I had to start all over again.  Some of you reading this would think well that’s awesome a fresh start why are you complaining?  With me it was rough because it was one of the lowest of lows in my life and I did it on my own well not all on my own my family was with me but I had no friends.  I actually still don’t have too many friends but my old life is simply that.  My old life.  Nothing from that life is part of my life today except for the memories and lessons learned.  So the truth is everybody WILL hurt you at some point.  Even if it’s just because you changed the channel and they got all mad at you and got up and walked away after yelling at you.  Be prepared for it, but at the same time be prepared to choose wisely the people you WANT to suffer for, the people who are WORTH the suffering.  Those are the people that will make a positive imprint on your life forever!  Don’t take the people worth it for granted.  I may only have enough best friends to count on one hand three of them being my family/fur family but that’s all I need, at least in this chapter.

3.  Well now that I got all personal on you let’s get back to 5 for Friday, jeez I ramble too much.  Number 3 is my blogger meet up this past weekend.  I know that I can’t stop talking about it but I mean have you seen the pictures from that place?  It was such a great turn out and the three new bloggers I met are simply totes adorbs.  Read more about it here!  Also, if you are in the NY/NJ area please contact me if you'd be interested in coming to any more of the blogger meet ups!

4.  3 day weekend.  Well, if you don’t like longer weekends you’re just weird.  Not a good weird, I normally love weird especially the saying “stay weird” but for realz you’re a bad weird.

5.  One more week until my parents come home! Yippee!  I am seriously excited.  I mean don’t get me wrong it’s nice being home alone but that statement is bittersweet because I come home and it’s quiet.  Even if I blast the volume on the TV, it’s quiet.  I’m seriously not making any sense in today’s post.  I need to just stop and get some sleep this weekend!

  2. You have to go thru low points so that you can realize how strong you are and where your faith is and where you stand with God. "GOD DOESN'T GIVE YOU THINGS HE KNOWS YOU CAN'T HANDLE."
