Hatred fills me like a boiling pot
hotter and hotter I boil
the steam engulfs me
I edge closer and closer to the rim
I will boil over
I was forgotten
so I must burn you
until I can simmer

It's funny, you don't really hear the word humble anymore when someone is trying to describe their friend or loved one. I don't think I know many people I can truly say are humble. One thing I've learned is you never know where you might end up in life, so you shouldn't think you're too good for anything...

Queen Bee

You know that old saying, you can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar...basically meaning you  can get more or go further by being nice rather than being mean. Well why does it always seem like I give out honey and I get vinegar in return...and then everyone tells me I'm too nice. What the hell, I guess I should start being a jerk, then maybe I'll be the queen of the hive!

So I just finished reading Wild by Cheryl Strayed, an absolutely riveting memoir of a young woman loosing herself while dealing with the tragic loss of her mother, failed marriage and drug use. She soon comes to the realization that hiking the Pacific Crest Trail will help her truly grieve and regain the sense of self and strength she once had. All alone and with no experience Cheryl conveys just how dangerous, challenging and eye-opening the PCT proves to be. Having to deal with wild animals, physical pain, inclement weather and dehydration, in the end all aid Cheryl in finding what she was looking for.

Interestingly, when I started reading this book, I was a little turned off,  the beginning has you dealing with her mother's death. Honestly, it was somewhat depressing and had me closing my nook in those first few pages. Mostly because my parents are older and retiring and I guess I just didn't want to think of the whole parents and death thing. Yet I forged on and kept giving it more time to pick up and I'm glad I did. I think it was the author's vivid details and descriptions that kept me reading on. Once I was sucked into her beginner's hiking experience, I couldn't put it down. I couldn't help but wonder what new challenge she would face next.

Definitely worth a read... :-)

Miserable People

Sometimes people around you can affect your mood so much that you forget how you really feel. I just remembered it's okay to be happy, and I'm really enjoying it, maybe you should try it sometime. It seems some people just revel in their misery and want to suck you in...just keep smiling.
