Are you a bully?

Thursday Treadmill Treats

 

Are you a bully?

 

Yesterday I wrote about how the candidates were slinging mud at each other and how one is an out and out bully and it got me thinking about the rest of us.

 

So many people today are bullies, you have cyber bullies, co worker bullies, even so called “friend” bullies. Yes, they can come in all forms, even the person your in love with can be a bully.

 

I can’t imagine growing up in today’s world where if you do one stupid thing it’s all over the Internet for the whole world to see and everyone has a say about it as if you didn’t already know what a stupid thing you did, you now have millions chiming in.

 

Then there are the computer bullies, who sit high and mighty behind their keyboards and have something nasty to say about everyone even though they have never meet them or know nothing about these people or their lives. Yet they have no real balls to ever say say anything in real life but behind that screen, watch out.

 

I even had guys on the dating site take time out of their days to tell me they didn’t like my profile or my hair style really?? Do you not have a life? Didn’t your mothers ever teach you if you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything? Apparently not!

 

You have co worker bullies, who make you feel bad if you don’t do something right, who will be the first to run to rat you out about anything to the boss, which reminds me of family bullies, like my cousin who couldn’t wait to tell on me and her sister for everything, all the time, it was as if she got a high out of us getting our ass beat.

 

Yes, even your loved one can be a bully, my ex would stop talking to me, withhold love, make it seem like I was crazy all while telling me I was useless.

 

Yes, bullies come in all shapes and forms and they get pleasure out of causing you pain.

It makes them feel superior when they are telling you how stupid you are.

It gives their egos a boost telling you how ugly you are. It gives them power knowing their words can hold so much over you.

 

Years ago I use to worry about what people said about me, I was a people pleaser. I wanted you to like me and would do anything to get your approval but those days are long over. If you have to put me down to make yourself feel better then there is something wrong with you not me.

 

You need to fix yourself, you have issues, it’s not about me, as I tell my girls all the time when his words cuts them to the core.

 

Here’s the thing, I not the prettiest, okay so what.

Is my ass big? Yeah me and more than half the world, do I have a big mouth? Absolutely but the difference between me and you is I would never say or write anything to intentionally hurt another human being and if you took it wrong, I would be  the first to apologize for making you feel bad.

 

I want to lift others up,

I want to inspire others,

I tell my girls, their friends, my friends, even my readers who write me that there is nothing they can’t do, that they are smart and beautiful.

 

Why is it so hard for women to do that, you are you and I am me ( Okay grammar natzi’s go on, have a field day and believe me they do, as if I was a professor or something, please I write like I speak, so frigging sue me!)

 

I might not be as beautiful but I have my God given talents, we all have our own gifts, our own personality and that is what makes the world so special that we are not a stepford wives, all the same, walking around.

 

We can applaud others accomplishments, we can be proud and show love without being jealous or petty.

 

So today my friends remember what does it say about a person who has to call names to others? What does it say when you need to put someone down in order to feel good about yourself?

 

What are you getting out of it, that you absolutely don’t have inside of yourself?

 

The only time you should look down on someone is if your offering them a hand up…that’s it and especially if you want to run our country.

This is not the leader I want my children to look up to and think its okay for this behavior ever!

 

So choose your words wisely… choose your candidate wisely…and remember the tongue is sharper than a sword.

Has the world lost their minds,let the mud slinging begin


Tuesday Treadmill Treats

 

The world has lost their minds, let the mud slinging begin.

 

I shake my head some days and recently I have been doing it so much I’ve made myself dizzy.

 

Yes, its election time again, time for all the mud slinging, for commercial after commercial to put each other down and the final Wtf…the debates. Yes..time for the politicians to shine, showing what dirt bags they truly are.

 

I am not here to share my political views or to sway you one way or another.

I could care less of your a Democrat or a Republican only that you act like a human being.

What is going on? That people are fighting with each over politics, all over social media, calling each other names….well, look at the candidates doing the same things.

 

Great job America lets all get down in the mud together, lets show the rest of the world how we as a nation, have lost all of our human decency.

 

Not that they couldn’t see it already when we are killing innocent black men, when we want to throw out people who are different from “us” When we are not tolerant of others sexual orientation, religion or any other views then our own.

 

No, we make ourselves look bad every single day, this time of year, it just puts the icing on the cake.

 

I’m not saying one candidate is better than another, what I am saying is the world is getting less tolerable, do we really want a leader who is the most intolerable?

 

We are here to love one another, no matter what race, religion or sexual orientation not call names and put people down.

 

We spend hundreds of years trying to tear down the wall in Germany now we want to build walls? In the land of the free?

 

Were is the famous quote on the statue of liberty.

“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.”  Emma Lazarus’

 

We might as well throw it out as we no longer want “these” people anymore.

And certainly not the presidential candidate, no we are no longer that country.

 

Why can’t we talk about the real issues like the homeless families, like how unless your rich you can’t afford to go to college and if you do you will owe until your 40 and then not find a job.

How about single moms struggling without child support or people struggling on minimum wage? What about our veterans and the lack of services for them after they served our country?

 

Hello! These are the real issues effecting most of us that live in this country. How about taking care of your own first, how about bringing together people to help each other, how about not padding the politicians and big companies pockets and actually helping the working class which makes up most of this country.

 

Let’s talk about the issues and what your really going to do, let’s hear a plan, not mud slinging, do something useful instead of leading us as bad examples.

 

So today my friends, remember what is the most important in this election year…love, tolerance and a way to make this country great again and as I always say at the end of each blog and its never more true than now…

It’s the God in me


Treadmill Treats Monday Message

 

Its the God in me

 

There is a gospel group called Mary, Mary and they sing this song called “It’s the God in me”

Some of you might know it, it was on all the top 40 stations. It goes like this…You see what you want to see, you don’t see me on my knees praying, you don’t know what I’ve been through and how he’s gotten me through.

 

Yes, we all see what we want to, we see people all put together, with money and fame and we think they got it all.

 

We see people happy and think, wow they are happy, must be nice.

 

We see nothing because we know nothing of that person and the life they lead or the things they may be currently going through.

 

You have no idea of the hurt they are hiding behind that fake smile, you have no idea how they cry themselves to sleep at night.

 

You don’t know the price they paid to get where they are today, the cost of their soul. No, you know nothing.

 

I feel this song, it resonates in me because I know whats its like to smile on the outside while dying on the inside.

I know people thought I had it all. Big house, fancy cars, expensive vacations, lots of toys, wonderful successful husband, 2 beautiful girls.. Yes, it looked like the perfect life but it was a horror story and no one knew because I showed what I wanted to.

 

Even now when people look at me and think why is she so blessed? How come she gets so many blessings? You have no idea how many times I fell down, got screwed over, lost people I loved, had set backs, fell on my face, thought I couldn’t make it through one more night…no, you only see what you want to see.

 

Like when they say people are a over night success, they don’t see all the crappie clubs, late nights, the thousands of no, you will never make it, you heard. They don’t see you on your knees praying to God to get you through each day.

 

What gets me through, is the God in me.That every morning I pray and give thanks he woke me up. Every night I give thanks even if I am going through a storm, even if I am not where I want to be, I am grateful for where I am at this very moment.

 

When I post how grateful I am for the life I have now its because you have no idea what my life was before, what I had to go through to get here…no, you have no idea the pain I’ve endured, pain I wouldn’t wish on my enemies.

 

You have no idea the God in me, because he was the only one there for me when I was lost and broken, how many times after smiling, I came home and dropped to my knees, praying…

 

So today my friends remember you don’t know what a person is going through or has been through. You have no idea how much pain that person is in or has felt. You only see what you think you see…but I hope when you look at me, you will see the God in me.

What’s up with people?

Tgif Treadmill Treats

 

What is with people today?

 

This week I wrote a lot about dating and how men are dogs and women can be bitches.

 

It amazes me what people do and say in today’s world.

I get it if your young, we all do stupid crap when we are young. We don’t know any better but come on people, this is about those people who are entering into the second half of our lives, we should know better.

 

Why lie? Here is a big one. If your dating and your on the dating sites why lie, why play games? Do you want to meet or not? Is that your picture from today or 20 years ago?

Why catfish someone? What are you getting out of it? Get a frigging life!

 

If your in a relationship why lie? Why string someone along? Why intentionally hurt someone?

Like my friend, her boyfriend wanted her to move 1400 miles away, give up her career, even her pension to be with him and here he was screwing around with someone else all the while!

 

Hello!! We are grown ass adults, act like one, you just don’t do it that!

 

Why hang out with people who you don’t like?

A friend of mine once jumped all over me for not inviting her to a get together I had, she did this in front of 20 of our friends. Who are you? That you think I have to invite you to anything? I was done, I realized she was not a true friend and I was done with her, just like that…I don’t need phony, back stabbing friends, I am not 13 anymore and afraid of hurting someone’s feelings.

 

So now she invites me to like her page or puts me in a group…hello I am done, what part of that don’t you understand. I am grown and I don’t play games…move on…next…

 

Life is way to short…. Screw me over, were done… Talk crap….were done….

Be negative….were done

Give me crap in a relationship… were done

I have no time for drama, fakeness, or half ass friends sorry…I have a life to live.

 

And as far as I am concerned it will be your loss not mine… wow that’s harsh you might think, yup it is but I now know my worth. Yes… finally I know my worth and I refuse to bargain myself for you or anyone else.

And if you don’t like that one…yeah…you got it…were done…

 

I am at a point of my life where I am making myself happy, I am done trying to make others happy when they will never be happy with themselves. I am done worrying about what others think of me, do you pay my bills? Didn’t think so.

I am done with people who bring nothing to the table just come expecting things.

 

I am finally at a place of peace, of love, of contentment. I love myself again, I am honest, I am my true self. I don’t know how much time I have left here but however much it is I am going to enjoy this ride and I will not be playing games.

 

So today my friends remember life is too short, grow up, be real, stop lying, stop playing games. Say what you mean and mean what you say!

Be honest with yourself, be your true self, don’t be one of those people we say… what is wrong with people today.

My special day September 22

Thursday Treadmill Treats

 

My special day September 22

 

This date holds a lot of meaning for me, in good ways and in bad.

September 22, 1980 my father passed away, he was only 45 years old. My world as I knew it changed forever and I was never the same.

 

But they say that time heals all wounds, yeah not when it comes to a parent, I still miss him so, even now, 36 years later.

 

But the date, that horrible date, that use to make me cry now has other meanings for me.

 

It was the date I signed my lease on my new home finally freeing myself from that horrible marriage.

I prayed so many days for a home for me and my girls and what day do I get it? Yes, my father was looking down on me.

 

That day I also sold my business, a business that I had only had for a year, what was I really selling?  Why did he want it? Who knows but here I was making a deal to sell it and stay on as a consultant for a large amount of money each week.

Really?? Yes, I walked out on faith and now I was being taken care of.

 

The year later I decided to get Baptist in our church and yes, you guessed it, it happened to be September 22, to me these things meant that even though he wasn’t here, he was always looking down and looking after me.

 

Were all these things coincidence? Well you can say so but I know better, I know its my dad making sure I am all right.

 

So today my friends remember your parents will not be here forever, spend as much time with them as possible. Call them every day, tell them you love them because one day they will be gone and you never want to live with regret.

 

But know this, as parents they will always look out for you, they will always be there, even if they aren’t any more.

 

So today I delicate this blog to my wonderful father in heaven. A father that drove 3 hours every Sunday to see me, that made me his special pancakes every week, a father above fathers, that paid child support above and beyond what he was supposed to. A father that paid for clothes, doctors, dentists and anything else I needed, who put me first all the time. Who made me laugh, taught me culture and to love the city, taught me hard work and to value your things and taught me that no matter what you never say anything about your ex to your children ever.

 

I miss him every day…

I love you daddy, now always and forever.

Every dog story has a bitch

Hump day Treadmill Treats

 

Every dog story has a bitch

 

Yesterday I wrote about what a dog some men could be and yes, I hear a lot of those stories but to be fair I’ve also heard a lot of stories about women being the bitch.

 

I have many male friends out there that tell me they did everything right, they were a great guy yet their hearts were stomped on, time and time again.

 

I heard a story about a guy with 3 young kids who was married for years. One day he wakes up and finds a note and she was gone, no warning nothing, she just walks out and leaves him with the kids and never looks back.

 

Men in marriages for decades, seemingly thinking everything was fine when all of a sudden their wives wake up one day and say they want a divorce, just like that.

 

I even know some women who make sure they have another man in the wings before they leave the relationship they are in because they can’t be alone.

 

I’ve had friends say they did it all, worked, came home cooked, took the kids to games, did the homework, cleaned the house, all while their women did nothing.

(Hell, where were these men when I was looking?)

 

I had lots of jappy friends when I was married who whole “careers” were to marry rich, get their nails and hair done and lunch, then shop with their friends.

(I obviously married the wrong Jewish guy Wtf?

Or I just wasn’t a good enough jew back then to know better)

Okay to all you politically correct pansies out there,

I converted so I can say this… bite me!

 

Back to the stories… Yes, there are some great guys out there and some crazy, ungrateful women who just use them.

I get that there is two sides to every story and then there is the truth.

 

Do I feel like all men are dogs? Absolutely not, just like I don’t think all women are bitches.

 

Its the same reason why I am not racist about religion, color or sexual orientation, there are good and bad in all of us.That doesn’t mean its everyone, that a whole group should be crucified for the wrong doings of one or some.

 

So today my friends, I am here to tell you that yes, men can be dogs but so can we. So let’s not judge the next person by the sins of the previous one.

 

Let’s love one another, open our hearts and take another chance, no matter how many times we’ve been hurt because living life without love is not living at all.

Another “Dog” Story

Tuesday Treadmill Treats

 

Another “Dog” Story

 

I am shocked when I hear stories from friends and readers that tell me how men are today. Well, me of all people shouldn’t really be shocked..Hello I did date the worlds biggest con artist…but I still have hope that not all men are dogs.

 

And then I heard yet another story about a lying cheating man and I think not again and what really shocks me is that these dogs are our age. A age when your settled, where you are looking to share whats left of your life with someone.

 

Why think your a player now when your fat and balding? I don’t get it but whatever the reason I am the voice of these women and the many other women out there that have no way of telling their stories.

 

My girlfriend reconnected with a high school classmate, they seemed to hit it off, they spoke every day. They had many things in common and my friend was so happy to meet a man, especially a man that grew up in the same town, had the same values, knew the same people and places.

 

Even though he was still living in the same town and she had moved away long ago, it didn’t stop them from pesuing this to find out where it might lead.

 

They were both looking for a serious relationship and over the weeks and months to come, their bond grew. She even flew there to spend time together, they fell in love and things were going great.

 

They called and texted every day, she made some more trips there, then the big word came out…Love..they were in love and professed it to each other, it was everything she dreamed of.

 

Even though she was hurt in the past from a man who also professed his love for her and then ended up being a lying cheating dog, she felt she could trust again, they grew up together, he was different, so she jumped in with both feet.

 

They talked into the hours of the night about the future together. He couldn’t move to where she was living as he had a young child there, so she decided she would move back home. She loved him that much that she was willing to leave her girls who were older and out on their own, she was even willing to leave her career and her pension behind for him.

 

Now we all know a women who has done this…Hell I am a woman who did this, sold my business, rented out my home even gave my dog away to move 1500 miles for a man…okay and we all know how that turned out!

 

Back to my friend, as she was doing all the paperwork to transfer her licenses to her home state, something seemed to happen. He called less, he didn’t answer texts, he had one excuses after another.

 

She made excuses for him as we all do as women…oh he’s busy, he has a lot on his plate, he works so hard…insert bullshit story here.

 

Somehow God intervened and her current landlord sold her home, she now had to move but she wasn’t done with all she needed to do in order to get a job back home so she was forced to move and sign another’s years lease on a new place.

 

The money she had went to the move and that meant it would be longer for them to be together but he said he would wait forever for her and she believed him.

As the weeks into the move came around and the closer it was to her going back to work, the more stressed she became.

 

The fewer the phone calls came, now she had already been screwed over and yes, she was a little insecure from that. When she questioned him instead of him calming her fears and realizing all the stress she was under, he retaliate with if he wanted another women, there were plenty of them chasing him.

 

Hello….to all the men out there, news tip…if you know your women is:

A. Under stress and

B. Insecure from being hurt before never feed into her insecurities!

 

That of course didn’t help but even though she was feeling something she couldn’t put her finger on, she still had faith in this man she loved.

 

When she got sick and  called him, he told her she should go to the hospital.  She was admitted to the hospital that night but low and behold he never called or texted her. She didn’t hear from him for 3 days!!

Hello…your girlfriend is in the hospital and you don’t call? You had better got ran over by a bus!

 

She knew then what she was feeling was true but still forgave him… then the calls got less and less, more insecurities and finally a breakup.

 

Now two weeks later he’s all over Facebook with his new girlfriend…Wow lots of time between being in love and wanting to move in and start a life with my friend to now being in love again?

 

But here’s what gets me, so now you post it all over social media..let’s just announce it to the whole world what a dog you really are!

 

Do you have no consideration for my friends feelings? Two whole weeks…really a long time to get over and meet someone new? Are you frigging joking me?

And when she confronts you you tell her she should be happy for you, that you found true love….people I can not make this shit up if I tried!!

 

Yes, there are some dogs out there but I know there are some great men as well its just a shame that the dogs are overtaking the good ones.

 

So today my friends remember to always listen to that voice inside of you, know when things don’t work out the way you want them to, its God intervening on your behalf and when a man shows you his true colors, believe him! Ruff..rufff…

The greater the brokenness the greater the blessings

Treadmill Treats Monday Message

 

The greater the brokenness the greater the blessings

 

Yesterday the message was about this palace in Paris, the architect wanted these beautiful mirrors for the palace but when they came they were all broken so the workers threw them out in the garbage. The architect came and told the workers to take the broken mirrors out of the garbage and then he broke them more, he put all the broken pieces back together and it ended up to be the most beautiful palace in the world.

 

Your broken pieces can become the most beautiful place..your broken pieces may look helpless, hopeless, not worth much at this moment but in your brokenness there are blessings even if you can’t see them now.

 

See we all know what its like to be discarded, we know what its like to be broken.

We all have been broken, wounded, thrown in the dumpster and felt like trash at one point of our lives or another.

 

What we don’t see is how God see us, he sees the amazing creature he made, he knows your purpose, he knows he made you in his image, perfect.

Yet you don’t, you see all the imperfections, all that’s wrong, all that’s broken.

 

God is about to make your brokenness beautiful, he’s about to turn your brokenness into blessings.

 

Sometimes it easier for us to numb the pain, you put on a facade, you look like you got it all together but the pain is eating you up inside. The fear of what if you’re found out, what if they truly knew how worthless you feel is always there. So you mask it you act like you don’t care, you drown it with drugs and alcohol, you pretend to be someone your not.

 

You need to know who you really are, you need to know your brokenness is not who you are, that it is something that happened to you, it is there to make you stronger, to strengthen your faith, to hold onto, to believe.

 

You have to change your self image, it may have started before you are born, it may have happened when your mother or father spoke over your life that you were stupid, that you’d never amount to anything.

It may have came later when you wanted someone to love you so bad, you let them put you down and you started to believe them.

 

Whenever it may have been, it’s your past and your past is talking you out of your future!

 

God will take the weakest part of you, he sees what you have inside, the strength and courage you can’t or won’t see and he is going to make it into your blessings.

 

You may be in a situation that you don’t think you can get out off, it may be dark right now but God has a plan for you.

 

Do not think because you are broken right now that that is all of you, that you will be forever broken.

 

No, today my friends I am here to tell you that your light may be hidden now but in your brokenness, it will brake open to expose that light.You will see how beautiful you truly are and you will see how God will turn your brokenness into your blessings.

The day the world changed

Treadmill Treats

 

Do you remember when the world changed?

 

Today is the anniversary of 9/11, it’s been 15 years since all of our lives changed.

I know we all remember exactly where we were on this tragic moment.

 

I of course was on the treadmill at the gym, this was before I started writing this blog and back then I use to watch TV to keep myself entertained.

 

As I was running and watching the today show I saw the footage, at first we thought it was a preview of a upcoming movie, I made the TV louder and saw a look of panic on Matt Lader face, he was almost speechless… we all stopped to listen as he said the words that would change our lives forever.

 

“The World Trade Center has been hit by a plane”

 

The gym was silent…everyone ran to see the Tv’s, we couldn’t believe what we were hearing, you heard whispers, what happened? Does anyone know?

As we were glued to the television trying to figure out what happened, in front of our eyes we watched as the other plane hit the other tower.

 

We all screamed, we started to cry, we all knew this was no accident, this was a act of terrorism.

 

As I am writing this 15 years later, I am crying remembering how I felt at that exact moment.

The world, my world, our world had changed forever in that second.

 

We all stood there, we couldn’t move, men, women and children all with tears running down their faces, scared, heartbroken, unsure of our safety of our country.

 

We watched the images of people jumping out of the towers, we watched people running out of the buildings bleeding, hurt, with looks of terror on their faces but what we saw that we will never be forgotten is the brave men and women of the New York police and Fire Department running inside the building as it was a blazed.

 

As everyone was running out, these incredible brave people were running in to save, serve and protect us.

 

We sat there as we watched tower1 go down, a audible gasp was heard throughout the gym.

Yet we still couldn’t leave…time stood still for all of us.

We watched people running, clouds of smoke so thick that you couldn’t see, for blocks these clouds went on, debris and bodies falling out, paper, lots and lots of paper drifting down from the sky…

 

And yet there was silence because we were to stunned to believe what we were seeing…

Moments later we watched tower 2 go down…it had to be one of the saddest days we had ever known.

 

Being a New Yorker I have been in those buildings many times, I knew how big they were, how many people worked in them, how many lives were lost that day…our hearts were breaking…

Would America ever be the same?

 

As we continued to stand there, we learned of the other losses in the pentagon, the plane that went down in the field, the lives of so many innocent victims across the country.

 

Our world changed forever that day, it would never be the same…

 

So today my friends, we remember all the people that were taken far too soon, we remember the brave NYPD and NYFD that never stopped serving and protecting us even till the end.

 

I am a new yorker, I will always be a New Yorker!

I am proud of everyone who stood up, who helped, who showed the world what New Yorkers are truly made of!

 

And who today we give a moment of silence and prayer…a moment of thanks and a moment of remembrance to all of thoese people who’s lives were lost……..

 

Be the change you want to see”

Its amazing what a year can do

Tuesday Treadmill Treats

 

Its amazing what a year can do…

 

This week I decided to write about the hardships we go through, the times we think we can’t make it… but God…we do.

 

I have to tell you I love Facebook because they put up what you were posting a year ago, two years ago and so on..

This is amazing to me as sometimes I can’t believe time flew by that fast. It also reminds me of how far I’ve come.

 

Last year at this very time,

I was betrayed by my best friend. I was hurt and angry, the pain was overwhelming as I never expected it.

 

It was a rough year for me as I was betrayed by another friend and I fell for and was played by the Con Artist, this was not my best year to say the least.

 

My best friend was there for me all through that, she was my rock, my shoulder to cry on, she gave me strength when I had none.

No, this betrayal cut so much deeper than all the other ones, this one brought me to my knees crying out to God why?

 

But I survived…not only that I learned lessons, I learned to forgive, I learned to depend on no one but God.

 

I look back at that year, how I was hurting, how I survived that summer with no air conditioning, how I cried about losing not only my best friend but my money as well.

 

How angry I was and my blogs showed that, how I lashed out at her, how I lost faith in people and how I wanted to close my heart to all people so that I wouldn’t get hurt yet again.

 

But the saying time heals all wounds are true…time does heal, if your willing to let it, if you don’t keep picking at the scab over and over, if you forgive and let it go.

 

Could I do that right away? No, not even little Miss Sunshine here could do that, no the hurt was deep,

I needed time to lick my wounds, I needed distance between the hurt and myself before any of that was possible. So please don’t think it will come over night, it won’t.

 

But eventually I realized that the hurt and anger was ruining my peace, the peace I’ve worked at so long to get in my life and this was not worth that. The only thingI could do was forgive and move on, learn the lessons and move on, give it to God and move on.

 

So this week my friends, I will tell you why doing that is so important and how when you have faith nothing is impossible.

 

See anything can happen in a day, you can fall in love, get the job of your dreams, you can become a New York Times bestselling author….anything can happen in a day, so just think of how amazing a year can be…
