Damn, damn, damn!

People give a damn about too many damn things they shouldn't give a damn about. Grab your coffee and pull up a chair and join me!

Good Morning everybody ....

I'm in a funny deep mood ... well I feel funny anyway. So I'm going to share my deep funny thoughts with you. Grab yourself some coffee, pull up a chair and join me!

In my life, I've given a damn about way too many people and things.

On the other hand, I've not given enough a damn about other people and things as I should have. The damns I didn't give? Well, they made a difference.

I've often thought and said, "bitches get everything they want in life." Why? They don't give a damn! Call them what you want, it all amounts to the same. They do what they feel they must to get what they want at all cost. They don't give a damn about who they have to walk over or run through to get it.

I know some, who at one point or another, stopped giving a damn and accomplished great things. Me? lol I always gave a damn. When I stopped giving a damn, I left everything and everyone and moved to the States and that wasn't far enough so I got on a plane to Venezuela. Did I give a damn about what I left behind? No. I didn't ask, I just went.

You think that not giving a damn sounds easy?

Well, it can have the tune but it doesn't mean it has the song. This may sound weird but I like the expression in french and so I translated it and I don't give a damn how weird it sounds... HA lol

The point I'm trying to get across here is ...

We struggle so much through the course of our lives and sometimes it's because we give a damn where a damn is not deserved. We give a damn about the rude waiter who ignored us and made us wait too long. We give a damn about the show we love that isn't going our way or got cancelled. We give a damn about the coworker who didn't ask how our great weekend went. We even give a damn about the rain because it messed our schedule.

Damns are given way to often and everywhere!

Here we are throwing "damns" like they were seeds in spring time. Why? What's the purpose? What's the reason? Because it's easy? Comforting?

That's the problem my friend.

When we give too many damns, we choose to give a damn about everything which makes us feel as though we're entitled ... we're entitled to get everything, we're entitled to whatever we want, we get entitlement issues and that's when the damns damn us.

If we were able to save our damns for the damn worthy causes, our life would be a whole lot easier. Think about this for a moment. If you stopped giving a damn, failure wouldn't be so terrifying. Rejection wouldn't be so painful. The unpleasant necessities not so unpleasant and the crow ... well ... maybe not so unsavory. We wouldn't give a damn!

What I'm trying to say is:

If we tried to give less damn and give more well directed damns, life would feel pretty damn easy.

We were born to give way too much damn. You ever watch a child have a temper tantrum and cry his/her eyes out because it was the wrong box of cereal? Ok. Point made.

We need to learn to control and manage the damns we give to gain strength and integrity. Like wine, our damns must age into fine vintage so when we pop the cork, it is a damn special occasion to rise to.

This is not easy.

Sometimes we get sucked into the trivial unimportant drama. We get distracted by the gang bang.

So, let me tell you something. This is no way to live. Stop fooling around. Get your damn self together. Reserve your dwindling damns for the most damn worthy parts of your life like: your family, friends, doing the best you can. Surprisingly enough, it's enough. As for the rest? In the famous words of Rhett Buttler ... Frankly my dear ... I don't give a damn! lol

Hope you had fun reading because I cracked myself up writing it. lol

Song of the day!

Because I'm not done yet ... I pick: My Give A Damn's Busted by Jo Dee Messina lol awesome song about not giving a damn. I hope you enjoy it too.

Well friends, I wish you all a great day. Be good to another and don't take your freedom for granted because trust me ... it's not a given for everyone to do so.

and SMILE! .... lol you're on life's candid camera!
