It’s kinda hard, writing
When your humble servant (me) first started with WordPress (WP) I was probably just like the majority of y’all;
- Didn’t know how to use the regular editor thingy
- Didn’t know, and still don’t know, how to use the CSS thingy
- STILL don’t know how to promote my writings, poems, musings or my carefully rewritten and reorganized ummmm…..what’s the word for stealing other people’s stuff and acting like it’s yours?
It’s either, ‘plagarize’ or ‘inspired’…
They’re both so close in their meaning, because if you look up both words in the dictionary and read between the corporate lines, they are, pretty much the same thing.
I guess I’ll go with ‘inspired’ because I do it without malice of forethought.
That means I didn’t mean to steal someone’s stuff and make it better.
Besides I can argue all day about why I have never willingly or knowingly plagarized anything.
I don’t read other peoples stuff or I should say, can’t read….
No, before y’all get all crazy and indignant, hear me out
If I read words from a page, I mean, literally read words on a page from a book like entity, I will be asleep in less than 2 minutes.
I have been like this since the 3rd grade. That’s when Mrs Salter first noticed it in me.
I can’t read instructions, newspapers, scriptures or anything over a page long. Seriously.
I will pass out.
I don’t think it’s a problem with dyslexia because I’ve always been a good speller, good problem solver and such; plus, mathematics doesn’t do it to me. I’ll look up dyslexia and see if I’m using it in the right context.
hmmm…doesn’t happen when I write.
I just noticed something else….
Why is dyslexia such a weirdly spelled word that represents a ‘condition’ where people have difficulties with spelling or the correct sequencing of words?
Oooo, look. My first wild tangent in this post.
My life has gotten in the way of me writing as much as I would like.
- paying bills, willingly.
- paying bills, that I have no idea why they are as much as they say they are.
- Treacherous wife
- Treacherous children; at least the ones I know about.
- Work; I guess that would be a ‘gimme’
- I wish I’d been born rich
- Life changes before my upcoming 52nd birthday.
I never thought I’d ever write that statement “Life changes before my upcoming 52nd birthday.”
But…I’m glad, or blessed, that I have gotten as far as I have gotten in this life; this test, this probationary state.
Because, if any of you have ever read any of my previous “get to know me” or “self revealing” posts on my humble blog, you will know that it’s pretty much a miracle that I have lived as long as I have lived.
Note: If I say I’m humble, does that mean I’m not?
If you haven’t read them, let me just simplify it so you don’t have to go thru the torture of reading them
It’s a miracle I haven’t killed me yet.
- I was baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on August 11, 1984; 32 years ago.
I was 19
When I came up out of the water in the baptismal font, I actually checked to see if my tattoos had come off.
Ignorant, yes, I guess; hoak’m maybe
But, man, I wish I had that feeling again.
It’s been the one instance that has seen me thru my fickleness for these past 32 years.
Yes, one moment in time, I knew that everything was gonna be alright.
….past 32 years….
I knew that I wasn’t alone, we aren’t alone. That, I knew secrets…and that I had to tell everybody.
If I had known then, as I stood waist deep in holy water, wiping the soul saving water from my eyes, what would happen in my life over these next 32 years, I probably would have asked the kindly missionary that had dunked me to dunk me again….until I quit kicking and tossing about and just floated, face down.
“Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation? Tell me, if you understand.” – Job 38:4
I have free agency but, Who am I to question God?
There’s a lot more in that question than you actually see at first; read it again and ponder.
I have free agency but, Who am I to question God?
“Mortals, born of woman, are of few days and full of trouble.” – Job 14:1
I have free agency but, I must cry repentance?
I wish I could keep a fetching steady stream of thought on one particular thread of contemplation and insight.
Stupid adult ADHD….
C’est la vie.
I’m all over the place with this.
Oh yes…I think I do finally.
I think I have an understanding in the concept, thereof.
If you are a memeber of the LDS Church, you will understand this…if not, I will add some links for clarification and has absolutely nothing to do with brainwashing. (You are a chicken, you are a chicken)
I have been faithful to the law of tithing for a while now. Tithing
I have been faithful, as much as it is possible these days, to the Word of Wisdom Word of Wisdom
I miss tea and coffee…..WHY!!??
I am trying my darndest to pray each day, as much as possible, considering that I never really made it a priority in my life, plus I’m lazy, plus, I’ve always been like “Why, pray? God knows what I’m thinking or doing or what I need and what I;m thankful for, anyways. He’s a busy God; wouldn’t my stating the obvious to him just be a cruel redundancy or I’d be jamming up the lines for more needy and desperate or WORTHY souls to get their prayers heard?
It’s all about obedience to the word of God, I find out…dang it
I have so many ideas and directions that I can go with on this subject that I can’t keep my thoughts organized.
I think my writers block is gone.
I don’t know why I’ve gone in this direction with my blog.
Maybe it’s a natural course, maybe it’s a budding writer that is searching for meaning. maybe it’s because it’s time for everyone to start exploring their own souls and I can feel it in the air….
Maybe, I heard the voice of God in a prayer where I was saying nothing at all; maybe I was just listening for him, to see if he was eavesdropping on me.
I heard “Endure to the end”
As if someone was leaning over my shoulder and spoke into my ear, in a normal, level voice.
Not still. Not small
I was there and I’m just as surprised as you are.
I opened my eyes. Got off my knees and sat on the edge of my bed. “hmmmmm”
That was strange.
Why’d he say that?
Not “OMG! God just spoke to me!”
Why’d he say that?
I know why. You know why. We all know why.
Endure. To. The. End.
So, I looked it up.
Endure: verb (used with object), endured, enduring.
1. To hold out against; sustain without impairment or yielding; undergo: to endure great financial pressures with equanimity.
2. To bear without resistance or with patience; tolerate: I cannot endure your insults any longer.
3. To admit of; allow; bear:
His poetry is such that it will not endure a superficial reading.
To hold out against?
To bear without resistance or with patience?
To hold out against, what?
To bear without resistance or with patience, against whom?
Hold out? Without resistance? Oxymoron?
The World and all it’s ‘glory’?
I know what it is….
I have to hold out against myself….
The greatest obstacle, hindrance in my life is undoubtedly and unsurprisingly…..me.
I only have to hold out, endure to the end, against the greatest supervillin known to me.
I have to think on this.
p.s: Oh, the last meat dish I have eaten was Lasagna.
p.s2: I miss meat but, not really.

Yes, life is managing to endure and also to participate in the joy given to us by nature and other people. We just have to “hang” in there. Oh, and it’s spelled “plagiarize” for future use.
Thank you and it’s quite devastating knowing that auto-correct is not infallible….Sic? Lol! Hope yer doing good!
