Take Two Pills and Call Me, Cupcake (We all have PTSD)

We all have PTSD

 

In light of the past few years, as I watch people in my grocery store avoid eye contact, or road rage incidents escalate, I know that we all have some sort of PTSD. This is not a simple headache or toothache. We cannot just “take two pills” and feel cured. And this problem is going to take more than one phone call.  Continue reading Take Two Pills and Call Me, Cupcake (We all have PTSD)

How to Stop Jonesin’ and Deal with Jealousy During the Holidays

What is Jonesin’?

When I was a young penniless college student, my best friend and I would drive in affluent neighborhoods during Christmas time and look at the decorations adorning magnificent homes and expansive yards. Sometimes there would be parties with valets, and luxury cars would add to the glowing lights and dreamy appeal. We would “ooh” and “ahh” and admire the things we didn’t have, and when we saw something we really liked, we would point and make the comment, “I’m Jonesin’ for that.” It was our way of acknowledging the abundance of others as we admitted our lack and our desire to be and keep up with the” Joneses” in a wealthy world in which we did not belong. We were dreamy-eyed and inspired by our jealousy to create more. We wanted those worlds. Continue reading I’m Jonesin’ for you, Cupcake! Stop being Jealous

Cupcake, is murder still illegal? (Someone may be in trouble)

illegalmurderMy husband may not be safe. We have had a few spats here and there–what married couple hasn’t?–but this time, he may have gone too far. So, with all the violence that has gone unchecked due to the absence of accountability, I’m wondering: if I have a great excuse, Cupcake, is murder still illegal?  Continue reading Cupcake, is murder still illegal?

You Can’t Just WISH Upon a Star, Cupcake! (A Common Misconception of the Law of Attraction)

http://ownyourcupcake.com (A COMMON MISCONCEPTION WITH THE LAW OF ATTRACTION)

When I moved to Texas, I loudly proclaimed that I wished I was back home. Amn vbny old geezer told me, “Wish in one hand and spit in the other, dawlin, and tell me which hand fills up faster.” At the wise age of ten, I thought this idea totally disgusting, and the ancient man completely out of his mind. Why in heaven’s name would I spit in my hand? His point, of course, was that simply wishing for something was “nonsense.” We humans are neither Pinocchio nor Papa Geppetto. I find that this theory seems to lead to a common misconception with the Law of Attraction, as well. People tend to wish for something, and then they become angry or confused when the wish is not fulfilled. There is more to fulfilling a dream than a simple wish. You actually do have to spit, and then rub your hands together. Continue reading You Can’t Just WISH Upon a Star, Cupcake! (A Common Misconception of the Law of Attraction)

You Deserve a Hug, Cupcake! (Applying Newton’s Third Law of Physics)

 

snooopynewton

Last week I read a post from one of my former tennis players. She was upset about the riots and was expressing her opinion, which was rather hateful and insensitive. She is now in her late twenties, old enough to know her mind and speak for herself. I felt completely shock as I read her words, then I gave in to the pain of heartache and sadness as I acknowledged her (unconscious, I am sure) decision to help perpetuate the hatred that seems ridiculously easy to spread. There sure seems to be a huge amount of hatred on this Earth. Hate for people of different color, hate for people who practice different religions, hate for people from other countries, hate for people who eat their boogers in public (OK, I may be in that particular hate group, definitely icky); basically, if you look for them, you can pretty much find hate groups for everything now.  So, I’ve been thinking. Newton’s Third Law of Physics states that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. If it is so easy to spread hatred, can it be that easy to spread love?

Bob Harper Needs a Cupcake! (What Happens When Competition and No Mind Merge)

Black Fire workout with Bob Harper, www.DailyBurn.com

I’m dying. Not like “buried in the ground” dying, but definitely at the end of my rope. I am exhausted. My heart rate is just barely faster than a bunny rabbit’s, and I’m in the cool down. I can’t hold my leg up for a quad stretch because my arms are too weak. Everything feels heavy, and I am covered in so much sweat that I am my very own swimming pool. My friend, Heather Santo, shared Bob Harper’s new Daily Burn workout site on her Facebook page, and I thought to myself, If Heather thinks it’s great, it’s gotta be a ton of fun, right?

Hey, What Kind of Cupcake Are You, Anyway? (Practicing Our Mental Awareness)

Between advertisements and teachers of the Law of Attraction, people are telling us that we are, in one way or another, unhappy. Are we? With all the clutter and noise in our heads, what do we believe? The bigger question is this: how mentally aware are you, Cupcake?  Do you constantly cruise around in your head and monitor your thoughts, or do you let your thoughts monitor you?
