I've been thinking...

Like the title? Rare, I know! haha

So first things firsts. I made it a goal to blog every single day. Then I got to thinking today...some days I really just don't have much to say. So, would people rather have a daily post of rambling nothings...ORRR would an every-other-day-actually-meaningful-post be better?

I choose the latter.

From now on, I will try to post every couple of days, but if I don't have anything good to write about, don't expect to see anything here. I'll spare you the boredom, because I'm nice like that :)

First things first...

Crap, I already used that one. Let's try this again...

Second things second?

Okay I give up, and it's perfectly clear now that I need to get some sleep so I'll try to keep this one short and sweet.

WHHHHHYYYY oh why can't life be simple?

I remember being in Elementary school and getting into a fight with a friend, over something stupid I can assume. You always exchange the "You're not my friend anymore!!" insults and go on with your day not speaking to another.

The next morning when you get to school, you are best friends again. It's like the fight never happened.

Why isn't life like that when you grow up?

What is so hard about forgiveness? I think the Facebook "block" button makes it too easy for people to not have to step up and say "I was wrong, I apologize" or "sorry for offending you." Since when does having an argument mean the friendship is over? Some people could really use a lesson from a kindergartener.

Arguments are normal, people get their feelings hurt, NOBODY is perfect. It's what you choose to do and how you react after the argument that really makes a difference.

It is far too common for an argument over something extremely petty, and usually online, to end a friendship. It really shouldn't be that way.

It's sad when social media ends true friendships.

Most of you that know me know that I don't hold grudges. Even my "worst enemies" could come to me and I would give them the shirt off my back if they needed it. That's just the person I am. I forgive very easily because I hate confrontation. I don't like to deal with the stress of being angry or the energy it takes to be upset with someone. God says to forgive "not 7 times, but 70x7 times." I try to live my life by that. I will always be the person to give you a second, a third or even a 10th chance, no matter what you do to me. (Now hey, don't think that's a free pass to treat me badly haha ) Having enemies is no fun.

I love to laugh, I love to have fun, and I LOVE when people like me. So when friendships end, it sucks. It really does.
