Sooner or Later

” Sooner or later everyone sits down to a banquet of consequences”

Robert Louis Stevenson

Truer words have never been spoken….

Kind of like the truth always shows itself….and usually in the most awkward of ways and times.

TA-DA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Consequences is a scary word. Toes all curl up and the nose squishes up like it wants to sneeze. Anxiety happens. Heart starts beating a staccato, rather than the meditation hum.

I feel you…

I have always liked the word consequences…it means…what I put out I get back…the choices I make, how I make them, when I make them. Come back to me…and yes the INTENT…behind those actions.

That must be the scary part.

We, as beings..glorious beings…make choices.

And each and every one of them entails results…(consequences painted in a softer, prettier light)…

Most of the time, we do not like our choices….

And we prefer that another carries the price..the result of our choices…

I did not mean that…

Then why not say what you mean…?

I did not intend that…

Then what did you intend…?

It is okay to say..I meant to insult, wound, confuse…

But do not be angered when it filters back into your life with you being lied to, insulted, wounded and mightily confused…wondering why you have to do the dance of verbal sparring to get to the point…

In negative terms they call that “word salad”.

And that is most accurate…

It is like racquetball…slamming the ball back and forth..ducking as it goes whizzing by, hoping it does not smack you on the thigh..or right between the shoulder blades as you are trying to run out of the room…

We do not tend to notice our consequences unless they are bad…inconvenient…results that we do not like…

We rarely, if ever see good consequences….and why is that…?

Is that the reason the word consequences makes one so uncomfortable…?

I dink I hit the nail on the head…

It is so much more fun…to play in the sandbox..eating the turds…because then we get attention…pity..likes…

Nobody sees the cookie you put down, that kept the blood sugar at a healthy place…or..the 20 minutes more you spent walking…rather than watching the television show…which resulted in a few more pounds gone…and a bit more stress taken off this precious heart, we have encased within us..

Nobody sees the journal you write in to dump the sick we hold within us…rather than the porn site we view and results in us viewing people as “holes” for our quick fix…our 3 second….OHHHH…

Those good results do not get pity…

Those good results do not get likes…

Those good results do not get the oohs and aahs and the attention from our lives running amuck…

So maybe it is the consequences we want the most…

So maybe it is the pity…and the stroking of our ego we want the most…

Because we all know social media…and those approving of our illness is truth…

We all know the stupid people tricks will get attention…

And oh how we crave attention…

We use it as our stamp of approval…

Our marker for excellence….

Results…consequences…

To err is human…

But foolishness keeps us going there…
