The Reason Why I Post Stupid Shit on Facebook aka Ranting Occasionally

Disclaimer: Yes, I have an Amazon Affiliate link so I get a small kickback from your purchases. This helps me feed my minions and not live in a van down by the river.

Sorry Not Sorry. I use Facebook as my brain dump place. My post this morning started out with this "I have to get the shit out of my head this morning, and posting it on FB is my release. I see it in my memories and the future me appreciate the current me getting it out."

This is a very weird, scattered article, I totally get that after I come back to it months later. The following is a list of five things I dumped out of my brain instead of purging it onto Barfbook. This is what I call the one platform now. It seems fitting when I think about it because people are just vomiting micro-blog, micro thoughts out into the world. 

So many people just paint a "pretty" life on social media.

I guess I don't...

Barfbook post. Life isn't all pretty.

Our life is not perfect, it's messy, busy, sad, happy, fun, did I mention busy?

We don't try to keep up with the Jones. We are here to live a life we design. We are doing the things that need to get done along the way. My posting rants of when Josh pisses me off or when the kids are fighting is my way to buck the system.

That shit has to be sprinkled in too...

The five things that plaque my thoughts regularly

  1. Money
  2. Music
  3. Self Worth
  4. Doing Right by my children
  5. Target (which really has been replaced by a bigger money eating monster The Costco)
  6. How much the font Comic Sans sucks but we won't get into that here today.
"...the future me appreciates the current me getting it out."
  1. When we are amidst "show" season, I get 3x more stressed out because I feel like I can't control my business budget AND our family budget. I feel like too much cash is going out and I don't have time to keep tabs on it. EVEN with Profit First running my life. (The Profit First book by Mike Michalowicz has changed our lives in so many ways and I preach it to others) In the future, I will be discussing how I set up a plan for my family to become Debt Free by 43. In 2019, we paid off an insane amount of personal and business debt. 

  2. Listening to Punk Rock cranked at 6 am to get the crap out of my head helps but I'm not sure my minions like it. Listen to more music, it cures the soul.
  3. I am fucking GOOD ENOUGH, but really I am way more gooder than I believe most times. And what people think and stereotype me as... (yes, I meant way more gooder because that's just how we talk in our home, it's a joke so relax) Read more thoughts about this subject: YOU DIDN'T END WORLD HUNGER, BUT THAT'S OK
  4. Tell your kids they are REALLY awesome at the awesome things but also let them know that sometimes shit sucks and it's how you deal with it that makes life better. Not everything they do will be good but they can choose BETTER next time. That's the difference, that is how we take control of our own damn life and keep on keeping on. How to keep on chasing wild dreams.
  5. I've got to run to Target to find something that I *NEED* to print the new things... I will only buy that ONE thing... says every person entering Target.

Listen to more music, it cures the soul.

As Barfbook seems to be going in the direction of more antisocial media, the one good thing about FB is the memory keeping that is available to us. I value that piece.

Stop watching your friends and family on social media and actually GO DO SOMETHING with them.

Make the people in your life your priority.

Do. The. Things.

Live the life you dream about.

Stop watching it on social media.

Make the memories and post them for the future you to see when you're too old or too broken to do the things. OR when you feel emotionally broken, use it to remind yourself that you are amazing.

Or just post the weird shit for yourself to laugh at next year when the "Memories" serve it back to you! 

List of hurts so good. Things that I enjoy but cause pain.

I'm aware that my grammar is not stellar. Look past that and understand the message before criticizing it.

Here’s the time for shameless self-promotion. It's how I help pay our bills, with my business... but it's also why it all started. I chose to take control of my life and figure out a way to improve my life. Shop the link below to order yourself a Freakn Tee.
