Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That


I’m all about avoiding negative energy.

As I write this my husband is cursing the tub.

People always tell me that God won’t give me more than I can handle but I disagree.  He totally gives us more so that we don’t try to duke it out alone, so that we come to Him.

Husband just passed by again disgusted.  Apparently, we have a tub issue.

I love that.  The God part, not the tub.  That means that when LIFE becomes way BIGGER and more out of control than I could have thought possible–I need to stop and remember that someone’s got my back.

So, big check in the box about God.  But what about all our friends and family and in-between?  Do the people we surround ourselves with have our backs?  Do they have toxic energy that invades you whenever you are around them?  Do you walk around on egg shells feeling like you are holding your breath and talking like you are constipated?  Seriously, try it.  Think about some embarrassing moment when you were a teenager, squint your eyes, and clench your buttocks.  That my friend is you on negative energy.  SO do NOT need that.  In fact, you might just say– “ain’t nobody got time for that”.  Which brings me to my next point.

Tag Lines.  A positive friend asked me what my tag line would be.  You know, a phrase that you say a lot, think a lot, associate with etc…  Mine is totally, I DO NOT HAVE TIME FOR THAT.  And THAT meaning squinty eye butt clenching energy slurping nonsense.

Oh Lord I know you’ve got my back so let THEM know YOU’ve got THEIRS so they get off mine!  Just go ahead and say Amen. I know you get me on this.

What’s YOUR tag line?

By the way, the other day I overheard my 9 year old tell my screaming 7 year old, “Mom SO does NOT have time for THAT.”  Love it.
