We Could Be Heroes… Me and You

No really, just think about all of the times we have heard how strong we are! How many times have we told eachother we are? “Hang in there,” we say! We can do it! We have been through so much! Well, seriously what good is it if we don’t embrace it? We act out on so much… what if we acted out on the good we have done for ourselves?

I spent a lot of time reading blogs this weekend. The holidays are definitely here! And, so is the anxiety, feelings of loneliness and ever popular anger. I could feel the emotions so clearly through people’s posts. “Fuck the Holidays” is definitely seeping through!

Each of us has the proof that we have done this successfully before! No, no… I don’t mean give up. I mean, we have made it! It may not have been pretty and it was probably painful as hell in most cases. Lord knows it ain’t been pretty at my house! But, we have made it! Who the hell says it’s a portrait of perfection for anyone?

I’m just saying, between all of us, we have so much experience of “GETTIN ‘ER DONE”! We are effing heroes! We need to take some time out and recognize ourselves for that!

But instead, we are hiding. We are buried under this pile of mental shit that has been heaped upon us. It doesn’t matter who did the heaping – us, society? It’s probably a lot of both. It’s there for sure. But friends, we have survived it! Time and time again we have survived it! I just feel like these holidays somehow we need to find a way to CELEBRATE that – Lord knows I have no idea what it would look like… just need to do it safely and responsibly 🙂

I’m not talking about celebrating Christmas or Hanukkah or whatever holiday it is. I know there is scary shit in there for a lot of us! Instead, celebrate that you are exactly what we have been saying to each other all year long here at WordPress! We are Strong! We did HANG IN THERE. We did MAKE IT. Bumps and bruises – so what! We are here!!! Even during the darkest times, you made, Sweet Pea!

What good is it to just hear the words and not act on them? I have to be careful when I say that, I suppose. But, we certainly act on other words we hear or think? Don’t we? Let’s do it for right reasons for a change. And, what better time then the holidays. It’s not like most of us are looking forward to the holidays for other reasons, is it??? It’s not going to be easy and the feelings of loneliness and anxiety aren’t going to magically go away for that time… but maybe if we shift the focus on the fact that regardless of the bullshit that is making us the way we are…. we are successful EVERY DAY – little by little! Because face it, if we weren’t, we wouldn’t be readin’ and writin’ this stuff.

I don’t know… Just a thought….. What do you guys think? What would it look like? Being heroes? Celebrating? I’m just curious? I’d love to hear what it would look like if we all got together and had a huge HERO celebration!!! We definitely deserve it!

Movin’ on… me and my dog…. and my friends… celebrating being heroes… maybe 🙂  Cheers?!?!?!

“Heroes (we could be)”

We go hideaway in daylight

We go undercover when under sun
Got a secret side in plain sight
Where the streets are empty
That’s where we run
Everyday people do
Everyday things but I
Can’t be one of them
I know you hear me now
We are a different kind
We can do anything
We could be heroes
We could be heroes
Me and youAnybody’s got the power
They don’t see it
‘Cos they don’t understand
Spin around and round for hours
You and me we got the world in our hands
Everyday people do
Everyday things but I
Can’t be one of them
I know you hear me now
We are a different kind
We can do anythingAll we’re looking for is love and a little light
Love and a little light
(we could be)
All we’re looking for is love and a little light
Love and a little light

  1. Lots I feel in my heart to say… but I’ll say only this: I feel this blog… and you… and your messages.

    Thanks for following… I gotta say, following you back came as easy as breathing.
    To friendships!

  2. Jami, Jami, Your still here because you are a survivor. Don’t let this world make you to be the victim. Your not, I’m not, we have much to offer. Underneath that hard exterior of yours is something special. Let it out, I know its there, I read between the lines. Hang in there, oh crap, did I just say that? How cliche of me but you know what? I mean it. The sun goes down the gremlins come out and then the sun comes up. One day at a time. Oh no, another cliche. You’ll have to forgive me Jami. I’m really full of…….cliche today. I’m thinking of you.

    1. Ah… It’s all good!!! I believe you. We are all survivors here. I’m not all that hard 😉 wouldnt it be fun to get is all together and have a survivor celebration :). Thank you for being there for me 🙂

  3. I’m going to buy a California SuperLotto Plus ticket this week! If I win, I’ll throw the party big-time and fly us all to Hawaii, okay? 🙂 I love to dream…..and you never know, right?

    Regardless of whether or not my numbers hit the jackpot, I love the tone of this post! Celebration sounds good to me, dear one!!!!

    p.s. Have you ever heard the Roxy Music song “The Space Between” off their “Avalon” album? I love that song. And now it makes me think of your awesome blog and of you!
