Missing the Forest for the trees.

Can you believe this nightmarish of a year only has about 30 something days left?

That said, one lesson we should take away is not to miss the forest for the trees. I’m seeing a lot of people not seeing the big picture.

I finally got to get my coveted day trip to the mountains this weekend. I enjoyed the fresh air and scenery. When I was enroute home, I had a fresh view of the WNC mountains and it was awesome. Some ugly trees were in the way. It would have been so easy for me to focus on those trees but I did not. I had a slice of Heaven on my passenger side and loved it!

I posted a meme of a couple with an insane amount of food on their bed that stated “Would You Like This Type Of Date?”. It was referring to a stay at home date opposed to going out. So many people were focused on that food that will be larger than some Thanksgiving spreads this week.

I had to shake my head at how much I have seen this. It’s easy to get distracted by irrevalant details. We simply need to be bigger picture folks and see the point.

Many people could benefit from this and the world would be kinder and easier to live in. Enjoy your forest!

On my BS

We have had one crazy week. Summer part 8, Election Day part 5 (and counting), all of my sports teams won, and my BP took its once per decade spike.

It’s a good time to get on my BS with all of this horror movie pettiness.

Biden won’t finish his term but he will get a lot more accomplished than people think. To all those that voted this year, maintain that energy for 2022 if you want the legislative branch to remain the same or sway in your favor. Biden is only one person: he and Kamala need help.

That said, Jaime Harrison has gotten a lot of attention. When Biden chooses his cabinet, I don’t think he’s going to forget that

Many of my WU folks will create their own alternate virtual Homecoming. Even if it’s just a few of us getting up at Empire or even one of the spots White Horse was at.

I will eventually get my mountain day trip before it gets too cold.

When I re enter the dating pool, many of these women that have curved me will stalk me

The Ninja Foodi grill is gonna change my cooking life!

This month I’m cutting down the year long honey-do list of mine

The social calendar is filling back up but I am turning down more invites as COVID is still around

I will find a way to deep fry my turkey since I’m not househopping this year

Someone will offer to give me a pig

I will win at least one of my fantasy football leagues this year

I will have Firesticks in both of my rooms and will have a Baby Yoda doll

My second book will win myself some awards in 2021

I will finally be in a relationship on my birthday in 2021

I will catch COVID but fortunately there will be a treatment by then

Don’t take all of this seriously

I plan on another career move, stay tuned!


Regardless of Tuesday

Many people across the country are anxious, edgy and just plain ridiculous about Tuesday’s presidential election results.

Don’t get me wrong, I am as well. I am just more at peace than many others.

Here are some things that will happen and not happen once the election results are in

We are not going into slavery. Please stop saying that

None of you are leaving the country in droves. We can’t even travel to many places at the moment because of COVID.

You aren’t going to lose nor gain any more money than you have now

Our Almighty God is still on the throne. Don’t lose your faith.

Work now, not June of 2024 to devise a better voting system than this crooked Electoral College. There is absolutely no reason we should be doing this two party, lesser of two evils nonsense.

There. I said it. Now relax, you can live. Also to my people of color. Despite what the current POTUS says, he nor the newly appointed SCOTUS has direct control over police brutality and law enforcement training. Please educate yourselves.
