An Open Letter to Assholes on the Internet

By on Aug 16, 2017 in Lessons, Life | 0 comments

What do I want YOU to take from this? 6 things:

Never put stock into what someone who doesn’t know you

says
. They are clearly misinformed and haven’t been paying attention.

It doesn’t matter what you say, do or post, or how polarizing it is, you have people hating on you anyway — pay attention to people who like hateful comments and delete them IMMEDIATELY, and also people who don’t clap when you win.

Keep doing you. Know that when you help people, everything else takes care of itself, hateful comments

be
damned.

Don’t troll social media and be a dick. I haven’t, for years now. I’m far happier for it.

Never ever EVER trust people based on posts alone. I have seen the sweetest posters lie and I have seen the most volatile posters be the sweetest people in the world. Sometimes, you build walls not to keep people out, but to protect what’s left. The SECOND you start behaving like these people on someone else’s thread, you need to check yourself first — which I say out of love, because I have made this mistake in the past, but never again. For over 2 years I haven’t said a negative thing

on
anything anyone else has posted, yet they feel inclined to say something on mine? Must mean I’m doing something right. #weedoutthefriendgarden

Above all else, do you. It doesn’t matter if it pisses people off or offends them or makes them angry. Do YOU. You’re the only one who can. And you know what? Other people, like YOU, need to hear it. Not the watered down version, not the weak version, but the strong version. And they need to hear it so they can find their own voice. Never forget that. Be you. Be strong and get RID of people who can’t understand your vibe. You’re not for them. They aren’t for you. And that’s all okay.

Tough Love Warning: Has ‘It’s Relative’ Just Become the Newest Excuse for Justifying Your Own Bullshit?

I speak a lot about success. I mean…a lot. Why do I do this? Frankly, it’s because I want to see other people be successful Me? I lucked into success. Several years ago, when I was just starting out in real estate, right after the market bottomed out, I was trying to differentiate myself from my competitors. I stumbled upon blogging. I wrote for Ehow, Realtor.com, Yahoo, MSN, CNN and many, many others. I was paid, up front $10 – $250 per assignment. I also earned part of their advertising residuals from that. I printed out those articles to share at open houses and used those items to send to my clients. Every single thing I put out into articles and newspapers and feeds became a gold mine for me. I mean, what OTHER San Antonio Realtor was featured on the front page of Yahoo? That would be NONE. Blogging did more for my business (and not even on my own blog) than any piece of...

The Best Love Story You Could Ever Get

By on Aug 10, 2017 in Inspiration, Lessons, Life, Love | 0 comments

I hate it. I hate THIS. I hate being right here, right now. I hate it because there is nothing I can do to change it. I love someone who has chronic anxiety and depression. And it’s not that he’s mean. He’s not. It’s not that he’s insensitive. He’s not. It’s that I watch him struggle and the struggle freaking SUCKS. And he? He loves someone who has cancer. It’s like we can’t win. It’s an uphill battle, but it’s an uphil battle we both choose to navigate day in and day out….like fucking rockstars. We really do. It’s those moments we spend, sitting across from one another, after midnight, where we talk about how we struggle or what we struggle with, until we can’t bear to talk about it anymore. It’s the moments I tell him, “Hey, I NEED you to quit worrying about me.” It’s the...

Straight Ahead: Everything Old is New Again

By on Aug 8, 2017 in Life | 0 comments

In fact, I will use, and still do to this day, social media as a weeder tool to help me discern the weak from the truly willing. It’s why I will post the most controversial and “out there” microblogs you have ever seen to see who’s willing to follow the blogs, to see who’s willing to actually take the leap, who’s actually willing to fly. Because if you want to judge me based on a few posts and you ignore everything good and honest and true that I put out into the universe, you aren’t for me, and I’m not for you. And that’s okay.

When You Realize Your Neighbors are Total Assholes

By on Aug 6, 2017 in Inspiration, Lessons | 0 comments

Open curtain: lose chocolate lab. A dog I have seen before. He barks, but when you call him, he comes to you. He’s hard to take home, because he wants to GO home. He’s lost, but he’s not vicious or violent. You let it go. You let HIM go. And then? You realize that you live around a lot of self-important assholes. Exhibit A: I’m sorry but this person who left the last comment needs to take a fucking CHILL PILL…or 12. Naturally, I can’t let this go, so here is volley #2: Why are these assholes attacking some woman I don’t know? I don’t know. But it’s ridiculous…and uncalled for. Furthermore, calling people names? No. Not letting that slide. Not in my neighborhood. No sir. No ma’am. I love when people assume shit about me. I really do. It gives me the ammo to bitch slap them into oblivion. 🙂 Weeee! Voices of reason. I must...

How to Never Lose Your Muchness In a World Who Wants You to Do Nothing but Lose Your Muchness

By on Aug 5, 2017 in Lessons | 1 comment

Conformity. Social norms. Not my bag. Never wanted them to be. If you are reading this, you shouldn’t either. If you could label me, I’d be the rebel, the outcast; the overachieving asshole. I’m okay with all those tags. After all, I realize that they are other people’s labels for me, not my labels for myself. And, truth be told, no one knows me better than I do. So to me, YOUR labels don’t matter. That’s what happens when you realize you can’t lose your muchness. Opinions mean little, attitude means everything. No one knows you better than what you do, either. We live in a world where love and life and success come pre-defined in a box that is wrapped up neatly in a package of happy on the corner of “Xanax and Fuck You”. People have to fit into boxes. Feelings have to fit into boxes. Everything has to fit into a perfect box of normality and come complete with a white picket fence or...
