Speak when you are angry, and you'll make the best speech you'll ever regret. - Dr. Laurence J. Peter

Reene Garcia posted this on facebook. It got me thinkin'....

Scott told me awhile ago he missed the spunky go-get'em person he met and who would do anything to correct an injustice or fight for the underdog. I miss her too... not even sure when I lost her. I think it all began when I started caring what others thought about me and I got burned too many times- things have backfired on me and I've ended up looking like the one at fault.

Mostly, I'm pretty sure that "spunky go-get'em" girl went totally MIA five and a half years ago when a genetically enhanced little girl taught me:

1) if you're gonna fight.... you fight for life or the quality of it.

2) if you pick your battles... when it's really important people will stop and listen.

3) and it is in my best interest to save my energy and fight for things that really matter to my family.

I still stick up for the underdog; but I really don't care to school customer service people who are rude and let them know they are in the wrong profession. I just roll my eyes if someone cuts in line. I pity, but don't confront, others who cheat our government. And I don't loose sleep over people who constantly choose to have drama in their lives. Just sayin'

I think I'll post this quote on my front door- both sides. Just to remind myself that all that drama should be left outside my home; because we already have enough drama to keep ourselves occupied!

I think pieces of our selves are lost when we become mothers.

On the flip side, we find pieces that we never knew existed.

Sometimes, though, I wish I hadn't lost certain pieces. I kinda miss them.
