Vicious Life Cycles ~ Letters from the Heart #atozchallenge

Dear Barbarinie:

It sucks that you picked vicious life cycles as today’s topic. Sometimes you have to face it. Life is not all skittles and beer or rainbows and butterflies. Sometimes life wants to push you down and fuck ya stick it you where the sun don’t shine. Not so much life, really, but people in your life or situations that come about that involve people in your life. You know like the ebb and flow of the Atlantic tide.

Vicious life cycles are something like generational sin. It goes on and on until someone decides to stop it. Not that they can because you have tried to right the wrongs. Just because you speak it true, won’t make it real. You cannot control how others will react to your desires. You are not the Christ (coming up in a future post).

Vicious are the things in life that you want to change, you try to change, but you don’t have the power to change them. So what can you do?

1. Don’t sweat the small stuff. In a day/week/month/year it won’t matter anyways.
2. Realize all people are messy. They deal with the same things you do.
3. Show grace. Everyone needs to be shown a little clemency.
4. Know when to just shut up. Remember what Thumper said in Bambi.

Practice these few things and that will be the beginning of stopping the vicious life cycles you find yourself in with people. Just know life is not always going to be smooth as velvet 🧶

Go have a good day now.
Your constant and faithful,

Can you believe we are on our last week of the challenge?  How’s everyone doing?  Having a good time?  I am going to be bummed to see it end.  How about you guys?  Are you going to keep at it and continue blogging on a daily/weekly/monthly basis?  How do you fit it all in? Just curious.

  1. A-Z blogging has been my dream for few years, but I always missed it. This year I am happy I did it and got to know many interesting bloggers.
    Vicious cycle- yeah we all have them. It has been on with my marriage. My spouse will mess up, then he will try to correct everything and promises… things are back on track until another mess happens. 6 years ago I started seeking divorce, but it still hasn’t happened. Waiting………

  5. Dear Barbie,

    The advice Thumper’s papa gave is something my parents taught me as well and words I’ve always tried to live by. It used to be most folks abide this easy-to-do rule but not so today. Everyone has to have the last word and it’s usually not very good ones at that. We cannot change other people. We can only change ourselves. Showing grace to all is a very good thing because we don’t know what a person is going through and being kind to another might all the difference that person needs to keep them grounded. Happy A2Zing, my dear! PS: I’m sorry for falling behind with you but I’ll catch up. 😉

  6. another thought-provoking post. I aim to blog twice a week on Sue’s Trifles and once or twice on Sue’s words and pictures. Perhaps I should spend less time online…
