Fixing Faults ~ Letters from the Heart #A2ZChallenge2021


Dear Barbie

My dear girl, one of the best ways to fix some of the faults that were pointed out in yesterday’s letter is to give yourself a break. Yes, you heard right. Take a break. Take time to smell the roses or flowers 💐. Pour a glass of that fancy water you saw at your favorite store –  where you can shop and drink beer at the same time. Put on a pair of shorts to go with that new A2Z t-shirt you’re sporting → don’t forget the sunscreen.  You need some fresh air and organic vitamin D (sunshine)  so plunk your ass down in that porch chair and let’s have a little chat, shall we?

STOP HERE: NOTE *** At time of posting, we are taking a turn and re-writing what we had planned to post. Instead of examining each one of the faults from yesterday, we are going to focus on the one thing that will tie it all together.

Revelation: Most of your faults are self-induced. Do you remember how you felt when you woke up around 2AM this morning? It was complete darkness. When you said  you thought the power went out, Tall Cool ☺ne said that it had not because he could hear the cat fountain bubbling water. Complete darkness and your eyes were open. Do you remember that feeling that came over you? It only lasted for a few seconds but it seemed much longer. It was a scary feeling wasn’t it? Darkness everywhere. You cried out in your heart.  You were so scared because you thought you were blind. Darkness. In a few moments the outside electrical pole lights were restored and vision came back to light.

Patience is a virtue and if you don’t get that under control, one day it will control you. Take a break and rest. Wait and be understanding of things that take time while you still can, otherwise there will come a day when you don’t have that choice.

Until next time,

your constant and faithful,


How’s everyone’s challenge going? Are you all having a good time? Visiting lots of other blogs from the master list? I’m trying to fit in newbies each day but it’s not easy because I always find another blog that I love and have to visit on top of the ones already on my daily jump in and visit list. Did you get a t-shirt yet? How about that scavenger hunt? How’s everyone keeping up with that? Good luck!

  1. Whoa, this hits home. I tend to run-run-run, get sh** done…
    I like to think that as I’m getting older, I’m getting a little better at stopping and smelling the roses though. Actually today I stopped the car and took pictures of a lovely Magnolia tree. That must count for something!

  2. Amen to ‘smell the roses.’
    I posted (G) today and hopped over to visit you. We are singing from the same hymn sheet today:) I like this synchronicity.

  4. Aw, so true. And times like these make having patience that much harder. I tell myself this, too, shall pass. I call waking up in the middle of the night my “Three O’Clocks” when my brain (or heart?) thinks problems really must be solved.
    I plan to get a t-shirt, and you’re doing a fine job on the scavenger hunt 😉

  6. Yes, I think we have no one to blame for our faults but ourselves. Anything can be overcome or compensated for in some way, but when habits become so ingrained it’s hard to fix anything. Although I usually can think of plenty of ways others can fix their faults. Best that I keep my mouth shut though–that’s one of my faults that can lead to conflict or bad feelings with others.

  7. Stop and smell the flowers. Remember to dance in the rain .Things will slowly fall in place. I love such thoughts

  8. Dear Barbie,

    I’m really enjoying your letter to yourself series. I totally liked the closing sentence. “Wait and be understanding of things that take time…” Patience isn’t a virtue of many, including myself. I’m a work in progress where this goes but I’m getting there while clinging to hope every step of the way. Thanks for enlightening my heart this morning like you’ve done much of this month.

    Stop by when you get a chance to check out my Looney Tunes Foghorn Leghorn art sketch on Curious as a Cathy. 😉 Happy A2Zing!
