If You Can't Beat Them, Join Them

They say, 'If you can't beat them, join them.' Why do they say that? This old phrase suggests that if we're tired of preventing someone from behaving in an unacceptable way or breaking rules that we believe should be upheld, we may as well just stop striving to turn the tide and instead, jump into that very same ocean and start swimming. What kind of justification is that? I really don't want to play someone else's game, or stoop to their level. However, I am so sick and tired of some people assuming that I have the word "Sucker" or "Stupid" pasted on my forehead that this time round I would have to say it is justified! I am so sick and tired of the bullshit that I am now willing to stoop to their level. I will play their stupid game! They may think they have the upper hand but, surprise, surprise, if they only knew what I know. I may be blonde but I really am not stupid!! It comes down to "Don't play games with a girl who can play better!"

The Messiness Of Life

Half of me is filled with bursting words and half of me is painfully shy. I crave solitude yet also crave people. I want to pour life and love into everything yet also nurture my self-care and go gently. I want to live within the rush of primal, intuitive decision, yet also wish to sit and contemplate. This is the messiness of life, that we all carry multitudes, so must sit with the shifts. We are complicated creatures, and ultimately, the balance comes from this understanding. Be water. Flowing, flexible and soft. Subtly powerful and open. Wild and serene. Able to accept all changes, yet still led by the pull of the tides. It is enough.
