I'm sending these graphic pictures of overdose victims not for shock value, but rather in the hope that you will have a frank discussion with friends and family about respecting moderation, understanding limits, and knowing when to just walk away.

Blu Puupie Doo


blu monday

Hello again -

ARF, It’s me Blu.

I’m sneaking in to tell you what’s going on in this crazy house.

I’m still Bat Dog…. but now I’m a bit worried.

My human brother likes reading, you see…

When he comes home from school he shows mommy all the new books he got from the library.

I caught Mimmo reading one.

They are all about this BIG FAT CAT, just like Mimmo.

Remember I told you last time that she pushed me out of the way with her BIG FAT BUM?

Well, now I know where she gets those ideas from too.

I think – that she thinks – that she IS this cat.

I pawed a list to show you that she really does think that she is this Garfield Cat.

Something I think everyone should read and think about.

The weekend is my time to relax, read, and of course spend a little quality time with the family.

This morning I read some posts from various blogs that I follow and enjoy.

I have mentioned this particular blog before in a few of my posts.
I really enjoy this guy's writing - it is honest and strikes a nerve or should I say almost always has something that I can relate to on a personal level.

At the moment he is writing a series of posts that are linked to one another.
Its all about finding your personal happiness, making the BIG decisions in your life; its about living.

This is a post that really resonated with me.
I mean this is so "me". Its what I'm all about right now.
I really have no interest in making other people happy, or fulfilling what others think my dreams should be.

I've said it before too that in my life; I've always put someone else first; or sacrificed what meant more to me because it made some other person happy.

Don't get me wrong I still enjoy giving and enjoy seeing someone smile. I have just grown to the point in my life where I see that some people add more value to your life than others do.

Its far more worth it to distance those that don't add value - and treasure those that do. You see recently I've opened my eyes to seeing that no matter how much you love and care about a person, and how much you do for that person out of love they may not feel enough about you to even respect you. Sometimes you just have to love a person from afar.

Some people bring so much negativity to your life that they should be cut out completely.
This is something I've also had experience with recently. These are the people who Dan says are the ones who judge you and grow apart from you because of it. To me its also to do with respect and jealousy. I analyse everything and to me these kind of people are poison not only to you but to your family. Your family meaning, the people who live under the same roof as you. That should be your priority, your home should be your sanctuary, and no-one from the outside should meddle with that, whether they are family or not...

As much as I need to distance those people, I feel I need to distance or phase out the "things" in my life that are holding me back on my path. Its basically having all the nuts and bolts in the right places, and in doing so it ensures that the cogs are working in the right order to move forward smoothly.

As all of you know by now; my ultimate goal and something I am always working on is being the best wife and mother I can possibly be.
My personal dreams are with animals. I want to see them happy, I want to be more "hands on" with animals in my community, and I want to continue writing or sharing posts that educate people on what benefits animals and how animals enrich your life. I have been waiting since forever to be doing what I am right now. I feel that things are falling into place for me, all holds have been lifted and its all or nothing for me right now. What's really wonderful is that I can and am still concentrating on encouraging my children, so that their dreams can become a reality.

I really enjoyed Dan's last line which reads "You'll be amazed how absolutely "perfect" a person's judgment calls are for their own life when the rest of the world shuts up for five minutes and lets them do their thing".
This line showed me how completely the post made a full circle for me.

This is what makes me - me.

So what makes you - you?

Take a few minutes and read what Dan has to say. Remember that his post is from a series of posts, read them all. Think about what he says. I'm
