Popped in the Crown

No not really, just wanted to get your attention. Did it work?


You know you are the boss of you? Really you are. You have the choice every single day, every single moment, of what you are going to say and do. I know some of us say that our hands are tied and we just have to do {insert whatever} But the fact is we still do what we want.

We do our jobs and perform in them the way we should. We expect ourselves to do the right thing, okay some of us do and those are the only ones I’m addressing here. Now I’m guilty of wondering about those other kinds of people. Y’all know them, they never seem to take things seriously, they are always getting bailed out of some kind of self made jam. Seem to skate by trouble and even when they fall in a pile of poo they come out smelling like the cliché rose. Yeah I knew you knew at least one person like that.

Why do we let that under out skin? I know sometimes what they do does affect us personally and sometimes in a really bad way…

But is it their fault that THEY chose to be un-responsible, un-liable, un-kind even?

Do you think maybe it’s our fault that WE choose to be responsible, liable and kind? They don’t seem to hold it against us. Just saying.

Have you seen my new Crown? I got it on clearance at the exclusive Royal Store. It’s shown here, the one that shines so much yeah on the right, next to my older one, yes they are surrounded by blissful dark chocolates.


I know it’s so loverly with all the Gin-U-Whine Die-Mounds on it. I wear it from time to time, but all this power sometimes, well just sometimes it gives me a headache and I think of crap like the above.

What about you, have I left you speechless?

Oh yes, so true!! Reading your post, I thought immediately of a family down the street from us who though other neighbors around here and I don't dislike but we just don't fully trust them. And the saying you used about falling in a mound of poo and still coming out smelling like a rose, is exactly how we tend to describe them. Fits them to a tee, ya know. Have a great day, Paige!

Gold's not my best metal, but I sure do like dark chocolate!!

I try to avoid making poo. No! That is not what I mean. I mean messes.

And you are exactly 100% correct that we have control over how we think, once I realized that it released my whole way of life for the better.

LOL! I think I hold it against *myself* for being so responsible and reliable!! I want the power to come up smelling like a rose after in the poo, though. You know, they just don't make Fabreze strong enough for those incidents...Crown-cool. Chocolate--always a good thing.

Are you saying I get to choose? I'll take the chocolate and the crown! Wha'da'ya mean I can't have it all!!! :)

you've left me smiling and thinking. i do agree that in each moment, with each action taken there is a decision made, a choice. We can always choose to walk away from those who's choices bring us turmoil, otherwise yeah, it's our own fault if we end up pulling ourselves and/or them out of piles of poo!!

Your crown is beautiful, your highness. Enjoy making your royal choices this day :)

The rules never apply to them at all, n they never feel an eensy bit guilty either!

Oh, yeah. One of those guys lives next door to me. Yep! The fundamentalist minister. I'd better stop right there.

I could give you the long-winded psycho explanation of why we are sooo responsible, but basically it just is. The way we are.

So, chill. Know that you and I are good people. Stop paying attention to other people and weighing and measuring and assuming and ....
