Don't listen to those who say, 'You're taking too big a chance.' Michelangelo would have painted the Sistine floor, and it would surely be rubbed out by today

‘If you don’t like it there is always something you can do’

Why is it that we allow others to affect our moods?

Those people who know me really well, will tell you that I can’t stand to have my slept disturbed with thoughts of other people and their actions. Be it good or bad Joice loves her sleep.

So for me to be up blogging at this hour means I must be pissed off. Lol

I have always prided myself on being true to my word. Really, if I don’t want to do something I won’t. The line ‘I don’t want to’ comes out of my mouth a lot, and honestly? I don’t care what others think. I know I have not promised anything so don’t expect anything from me.

There are so many cliché lines that spring to mind

‘Treat people how you want them to treat you’

‘A person’s plate is never full if they are interested in something’

‘A person’s word is their bond’

The one line that springs to mind today is a line that an ex boyfriend ALWAYS used to drop on me ‘If you don’t like it you know what to do’. Yes he’s an ex so I did do what I needed to do eventually. Lol

Since my little episode with him, I have adapted his signature line to ‘If you don’t like it there is always something you can do’ lol

So a word to the wise people who cross Joice’s path and wish to be her friend.

Don’t promise to do something and then let her down. It irks her more than you will ever know. Because, her word is her bond she expects the same of you.

I don't know why this song springs to mind but it does

So vent over lets see if I can get some sleep. Lol


  1. The ex's words would've pissed me off but it is true.

    My mom is always saying "We teach people how to treat us." I don't like it when she says that because I feel like I am allowing certain behavior.

    In a way, I get what both of them are saying.

    Hope venting was able to put you to sleep=)

  2. Dang Joice....I don't know who made you mad. I just hope it's not me!!! I don't want to have to come across that living room and tackle you!!!

  3. Words to live by indeed.

    I'm stayin on your good side.

  4. You guys, are great. lol

    Vent, gripe all over with for now.

    I'm sure said individual will again try to work my last nerve.

    But, hey I am aware of their 'in my space and time', tearing the ass out of it ways now.

    So trust me I wont be allowing them to affect my sleep ever again.

  5. first off let me say that you look like you are "getting it" in that profile pic. that is a fierce pic. love it.

    i enjoyed the read. it enforces my belief that if there is something that i don't want to do, i don't do it. and vice versa. i hate having my moods affected by people. so i stop placing myself in situations where i have to trust the person more than i trust myself. for the most part i do, and will continue to do so.

    i digress.
