I can't pick just one!

Welcome to Take Two of June’s Secret Subject Swap! This week, us 12 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in our own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts! YAY!

My subject is What is the most daring thing you ever did? It was submitted by  <--LOVE HER! THE ORIGINATOR! Here goes: 

  1. Having children. Seriously this takes major cojones! It's the most difficult thing in the world and you are always learning. You never really know what you are doing and sometimes it involves blunt objects or legos on the floor. Exploding diarrhea and various trips to the ER because some parent thought it was a good idea to send their child to school with pink eye or strep throat or a stomach virus. Dangerous. 
  2. Buying a house. C'mon this has to be one of the most daring adventures in your life that you make and the most financially unstable decision ever. Something is always needs fixing and sometimes a hurricane uproots your tree and you end up shelling out your mortgage to remove it before the neighbor has a major heart attack. But then you realize the neighbors poison ivy is growing in your backyard and YES NOW I CAN COUNTER COMPLAIN! Remove that ish! (Sorry I got off track)
  3. What about roller coasters? Those are pretty frikin scary and daring. You put your trust and life into these things that can just malfunction at anytime. I usually go on all of them and 99% of the time realize I'm not so smart right before it drops on that first hill. I tug at the restraints. I look for a fast exit. I think to myself, why haven't I written a will yet? I close my eyes the while time. Get off. Scared as hell and do it again. Why do I torture myself? Bc I'm bad ass probably. 
  4. How about getting in a car? That's pretty scary and daring. Don't look at my DMV record either, you might feel like you shouldn't be in a car with me anymore. 
  5. I've tried marijuana, that's not daring, it's therapeutic and fattening. 
  6. Relationships are also pretty daring but let's not go there right now. 
  7. I've not come home during high school, pretty daring and stupid, ask my mom. 
 So ask you can see I might seem pretty boring but I wasn't always this way. I had children and calmed the hell down!!!!!! Also, the things I've done in the past can't be put out in public. We all have those moments amiright?

Bumps in the road

I find myself just confused. I wish I knew the meaning of life, I wish I knew if there was a God, I wish I just knew why there has to be so many bumps in the road. Since we were young we were always told life isn't fair. When will it be? Will there ever be a period of normalcy. A time in my life/your life where things just go right for once? Death, injuries, natural disasters, breakups, job loss, birth, etc. It seems like something is always going on and when it's not and you kind of feel normal for a while, life has a way of slapping you in the face. Now maybe life hits you with great, awesome things, but you don't get to enjoy them for long because you end up hitting that bump in the road. Stay strong! That's what everyone tells you. But can we be weak for a moment? Can we be human? Can we cry and scream and curse life and God?  Can someone tell us what's the point of all these bumps in the road? WHY WHY WHY? Today I don't feel so happy and I probably won't for a while. My posts might go from funny to depressing. And that's real life. I won't pretend to put on a show to mask my feelings because I've tried and it doesn't work. I can't even imagine what it's like to have worse things happen in life but right now this bump might be one of the hardest ones I've ever hit. To know that you had things mapped out and the mapped just got shred to pieces. To live a dream that ended up being a nightmare. To be loved and find out you were never loved or worth of it from the person you wanted most. To have regrets, blame yourself, blame the other person, trying to retrace every step to see where you went wrong. Guess those things are a normal part of life when a relationship ends. But, I don't want to go through this. I want to wake up everyday and hope that this is a cruel sick joke. I want everything that was to be different how I saw in my dreams. But it won't. And time can never go back. I don't think we choose our paths and destiny because there's always gonna be that bump in the road that throws your world into the scariest place to live.
