Experience is the best teacher right?. Your eyes and you heart can not deceive you. I have a couple of friends that would EASILY fall into the 'Prize F'up' category when it comes to decisions they have made in their life. I have found myself many times sitting with a blank look on my face as they fill me in with their latest chapter of self destruct.
On the other hand though I have some pretty hard wired friends. The determined type that know what they want, how to get it and where to go looking for it. Ive was described as COLD recently. I gave the statement about 5 seconds worth of thought (had to be polite) and kept it moving. The Joice of some 4 years ago would have let this disturb her sleep, and we all know how much I like my sleep. lol
But, for real COLD? Was that supposed to hurt? Be that gut punch that made me double over and gasp for breath. I've seen and been through enough to know COLD is a good look to have right about now.
That means people should know if they are coming to me with BS they are not looking for the generic reaction. I will find plan B, C and go all the way to Z if I have to before I will throw in the towel in defeat. We Maduaka's are strong stock. lol
I see life these days like the military. There are going to be battles along the way and I'm a surviver. I used to date a guy in the military who I used to call "Army Boy". Yeah I know really original. lol . Seeing what he had seen at war had opened his eyes and his sense. But, he was always as he put it "Combat Ready" . At the time I used to laugh. You see I was going through my LIVE YOUR LIFE and HAPPY HAPPY PEOPLE phase.
But for real Combat Ready is not necessarily a bad thing. Shit!! at least your prepared if you need to ball up them fists.
So just call me GI Joice
