My Favorite Personal Quotes (as of May 26, 2018)

From time to time I’ll either come across or come up with my own quips and quotes. Here are a few:

If you see “ej”, “lmg” or “lm…”, the preceding quote is mine.

 

When I was a kid, I always wondered why my mom got to do whatever she wanted to do. Now that I’m a mom, I don’t wonder about it,I ENJOY IT!!!
-ej 010511

 

Gone crazy… Will be right back.
-lmg 2000

 

My friends can be broke… my man CAN’T!
-lmg 010429
(afterthought: I was SO single when I wrote this and was in the Dating World. I probably came across a broke brutha that tried to go too far taking advantage of my kindness and hospitality. SMH)

 

You bring joy to my heart and make my life richer. I’ll always cherish the gift of YOU.
-unknown

 

What if there was someone out there named “Someone” or “Somebody”. Do you realize that he or she gets blamed for practically everything that goes on in the world???
-ej 010523

Revised version of that last quote:
What if there was someone out there named “Not Me” or “I Don’t Know”. Do you realize that he or she gets blamed for practically everything that goes on in the world???
-Lea Mishell 090823

 

(a thought that ran through my head just before I began cleaning my apartment…)

2001 Mother’s Day dedication to my mother that I wrote inside the card I gave her:
Mama, I’ve loved you since before I could focus my little newborn eyes on your beautiful face. You’ve been there through diapers and divorce. You’re not only my mother, you’re my friend.
-ej 010423

 

If learn to fix my own car, what will I need a man for?
-ej 010530

Rebuttal to previous quote: Trust me, I KNOW what I need a man for… I was having a bad “I don’t have a boyfriend” day…
-ej 050527

 

Please don’t allow me or anyone to take away that which gives you joy.
-ej 010619

 

Why are habits so easy to make and so hard to break?
-ej 010503

 

What My Heart Color Means to You!
Color my heart red when you are near because to me you are so very dear…
When you are far away my heart turns blue because I sure do miss you…
Color my heart a bright yellow on a cloudy day because you chase my cares away…
Color it purple because your trust and loyalty has made me feel like royalty…
Color it green like the promise of spring for all the love our friendship brings…
-unknown 2001

 

Mishell’s Rant for May 8, 2001: Believe it or not, I’m single… Now you may be wondering why this is the case. Well, first of all, I’m not married…I don’t have what most call a real relationship…Therefore I am single…
The question is: How does Mishell feel about
BEING single…
DAMMIT! I don’t like it!
Yes, I can be a bit of a flirt, but I don’t want to spend the rest of my life flirting. I want to be with one and only one man. He knows who he is and he if keeps bullshitting, I may not leave him the option of making a choice in the matter. Summer is coming and I’m already getting nibbled at. It’s not like I HAVE to be alone. I can give him a chance to think of what he’s about to lose…
OR…
I could just take the choice away from him totally and go out on my own and be the Independent Woman that I know I am.
And I would if I didn’t love him so much…

 

I’d rather have high self-esteem and be a diva than have low self-esteem and be a doormat!
~Lea Mishell 070705

 

Life’s short. Eat dessert first. Work less, vacation MORE!
~Lea Mishell

 

Never do anything you’ll regret. Never regret anything you do.
~Lea Mishell

 

My life is an open book… series.
~Lm…

 

What I found most interesting were the June 19th quotes, the day I married Hubby (they’re the BOLDED quotes in case you can’t read the “date code” behind the quotes)

From Sweetheart to She-Devil and Back (NSFW)

FB_IMG_1463782681086

I honestly didn’t know what to title this post as I began writing it but a nagging thought has settled in my brain: I’m not a nice person.

OK, that’s not completely true nor is it always true but lately it’s been my M.O. to go for mine and leave y’all behind!

So not like ME!!!

Sitting here wondering why I’m not as happy now as I used to be in my younger years and I realized how much I’ve allowed negativity to envelope me. Yes, I, Mrs. Positivity herself, can actually be a very rude, inconsiderate and insensitive bitch. Without even trying to, I began to neglect my husband and children, my family and friends, my PayJob* AND MyCareer**!!! I should’ve known SOMETHING was wrong when I didn’t even WANT to write and anyone who knows me knows that, for me, writing is like breathing air!

I was unintentionally committing suicide!

This week, a lot of lingering negative things have bubbled to the surface, forcing me to once again deal with them. Once and for all. As awesome an author as I am, I have trouble communicating verbally. If I write my words down, I have a chance to edit until I’ve perfected what I want to say. When I’m talking and if I’m not clearly thinking of my response, I tend to say the wrong things or my tone will be so displeasing that the listener instantly gets an attitude with me. I abhor confrontation and tend to pick my battles to keep the peace. This doesn’t ALWAYS work. Sometimes you have to open your damn mouth and say something!

And if you can’t say it with love, shut the fuck up.

OK. There’s that bitchy She-Devil side of me again. She curses like a sailor and doesn’t give a fuck what you think of her. And right now, She-Devil is stronger than my Sweetheart side but since I personally cannot STAND negativity AND I’m the source of my own drama, I vow to speak less negatively to allow my heart to share this love that has built up inside of me! People will treat you the way you allow them to treat you. I used to be treated like a Queen. My actions over the past few years have demoted me down to scullery maid.😔

Wouldn’t you rather be around someone who is positive and genuinely happy?? They used to call me Suzy Sunshine because I was so positive. Polite. Helpful. Friendly. The fact that my life isn’t exactly the way I want it to be right now has sunk me into a depression I didn’t know I was in. But I can’t keep making and taking excuses. I need to take action and reverse this ASAPly!!

In the next few months, I’ll get back to posting in my “Encouraging You!!!” Facebook group as well as on this blog since writing gives me so much joy. Sharing love gives me peace and makes me happy. And I miss you guys. I truly do.

Please send positive words of encouragement to someone. You never know what they’re going through.

I want to give a shout out to my bestie Jennifer for sticking with me through this madness, never letting me stay down on myself and always encouraging me!!

Til next time.

Why Do I Love YOU?

20131209-205110.jpg

Believe it or not, I love EVERYONE.

When I love someone, it’s not because of their age, their height, the way they look, the color of their skin or even their gender. It’s because of something within them. I feel drawn toward something positive in them that is mirrored within myself. Most of my friends are similar to each other. My past lovers were similar to each other. And what was that similarity? They each had something about them that made me love them as they were. Anyone I come in contact with I try to treat them this way: as you are. I love you if you’re straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transsexual, transgendered or whatever because you are here to be loved as you are.

I’m not telling you how to love anyone. I’m just letting you know why I love EVERYONE.

PeaceLoveHappiness
