Our eyes met 25 years ago….the love of my life.

Yes, I am weird but just wanted to give a shout out to the hubby….

25 years ago, June 18th, 1993 our eyes first met.  You said a simple “how’s it going” as you were sitting on the breakroom stairs and our eyes locked.  You had a handsome, sexy, boyish, grin with twinkling eyes.  I blushed…put my head down and went into the dairy cooler thinking to myself “what in the world was that about” as my face felt hot and I img_20180618_075802_4635790156222649520392.jpgwas virtually speechless as I all I was able to say was “good”.  Here we are 25 years later and I am still forever hooked on you….. Luv U Lots 😘😍😘
p.s. Yes, this is the exact day we met as it was my first day working at Safeway.  Yes, this is just the day we met as our first date was July 3rd and then we were inseparable after that.  Yes, I am weird but thats why ya still love me💕.  This is a date I remember as exactly 6 months later to the day we said “I do”.  Thanks for choosing me and providing me with such wonderful sons!!  Thanks for Reading my Thoughts……Robin Robinson

Your craziness in this world =’s YOU being a little more sane…..

YO!!! WASSUP?!?! Obviously my weirdness is coming out and my quirkiness is gonna shine today!! What about you?!?!
textgram_1528985483

Why be something you’re really not?!?!

Why NOT be true to yourself?!?!

Why be afraid of what others may think?!?!

Why NOT accept that not everyone is going to like or understand you?!?!

Why be like everyone else?!?!

Why NOT live a life dedicated to more of what makes you happiest?!?!

Why be uptight, a snob, judgmental and a negative nelly towards others that are different in any way, shape or form?!?!

Why NOT try to get to know people for who they really are, for whom they are on the inside or just give them a smile of kindness as you pass them by?!?!

Why be so reserved, so afraid to shine and so apprehensive of who you are or who you want to be?!?!

Why NOT say “Hello world, here I am! Like me, Love me or Hate me….I AM WHO I AM, THIS IS ME!!” And be content knowing you are being true to yourself and that anyone who cannot accept you is losing out, not you?!?!

WHY NOT?!?!

WHY NOT!!!??!!!

“Judge not lest ye be judged”“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”.… These bible verses have always stuck with me over the years as I strive to see people for WHO THEY ARE and NOT FOR WHAT THEY AREN’T and as I try to treat others as I would like to be treated!!! Hello!!!!! None of us is perfect…All of us have issues…Weird is an understatement for most but that is what makes us unique…Uniqueness is something that each of us possess…Perfect is something none of us are but that’s what makes us, us…Us as individuals are unique, wonderful, weird, awkward and 100% one of a kind!!!

I Believe In YOU, I Know You Possess Greatness, I See You For Who You Are, I Love The Crazy Unique Weird YOU, I Wholeheartedly Know YOU Can And Will Succeed In Achieving Anything You Set Your Mind To!!! The choices are YOURS, always have been and always will be…..BE TRUE TO YOURSELF, BELIEVE, ENJOY LIFE TO THE FULLEST, IGNORE THE HATERS, RISE AND SHINE FOR WHO YOUR ARE!!! Great Big Hugs & Lotsa Luvs 2 U All ….. Thanks for Reading My Thoughts…..Robin Robinson

 

 

You are Strong…Be Strong…Stay Strong…

You are Strong…Be Strong…Stay Strong…

You can and you will handle whatever life throws your way because your inner self is stronger than you realize.

We all have struggles of varying degrees but we all have the strength within us to get through them, to adapt, to endure and to lean on others when needed.

img_20180525_073006_9757878908451842070942.jpgIt’s ok to feel broken, to breakdown and cry.  But, do not dwell on the negatives, do not let sorrow consume you.  Instead, look at the good you have and have had…look to the blessings you have been given…look to your friends and loved ones if you need a little extra help…look to your inner self for the love you hold within your heart to help get you through tough times…and, sometimes, a few prayers to the all mighty above can help ease the pain and help guide you more than you’ll ever really know.

Huge Hugs & Lotsa Luv to all of you, especially to those of you that are struggling and need a little extra luvs  Thanks for Reading my Thoughts….Robin Robinson

Attitude is Powerful in many ways…..

ATTITUDE

Your Attitude,
My Attitude,
The Attitude of Others….

Attitude is such a powerful thing in so many ways!  I could write a novel about Attitudes and possible meanings & affects based on just my opinion alone, but I will spare you.  🙂

Instead, I shall give you a few things to think on….

  1. Is your Attitude positive and uplifting or is it negative and destructive?  Why do you think that is?
  2. Is your Attitude a reflection of who you truly are and who you want to be?  Do you need to make any changes?
  3. Is your Attitude helping or hindering your personal growth and happiness?  Think on this one a bit as there may be much you do not realize about yourself and your attitude.
  4. How is your Attitude affecting others?  Is it in a good, positive, encouraging way or is it negative and discouraging and tearing them down?  Reflect on that a moment and think about how you may be affecting others both good and bad….should you try to make changes in your attitude, have you pushed others away, should you apologize and talk about any of your behavior?
  5. Are the Attitudes of others affecting you by bringing you down or lifting you up?  Think on this, make changes if needed.  Figure out why/how, especially if it is negatively affecting you.
  6. Is the Attitude of others holding you back from following your dreams, from going after what you want, for going after what you believe you deserve?  Maybe you need to reassess a few things/people.  You have this one life to life and this is YOUR life to live, mistakes and all…….Your Life, Your Choices…..do NOT allow others to stop you!

img_20180314_083144_618460885640.jpgATTITUDE is such a powerful thing in so many ways.  FOLLOW your hopes & dreams, NEVER give up, NEVER stop believing in yourself.  Take a time out whenever needed, but DO NOT allow yourself to get swallowed up by the negatives around you & within yourself!  You can make pit stops, but don’t park for too long!!

I am wishing you all the best of luck for Positive Attitudes and Positive Reinforcements to surround you!!  Believe in Yourself and your Abilities, make changes as needed!!  Great Big Hugs & Lotsa Luv from me 2 ALL of U … Thanks for Reading my Thoughts….Robin Robinson

Words are powerful, use them wisely…..

Use your words for good, for positivity, for spreading happiness and for lifting others up instead of tearing them down!!

img_20180123_083738_628332990682.jpg

Before you say unkind things to someone, think…..Before you say unkind things about someone, think…..Be the difference, Make a difference…..Kindness is free to give.

May you all have a most wonderful day filled with positivity!!  You hold the power to do great things, your life your choices and I hope you use it for more positivity.  Hugs & Luvs 2 U All  Thanks for Reading my Thoughts……Robin Robinson

Friday Dare…..try to be less negative and more positive….I Dare You!!

Trying to help you start your day off with a Smile and some positive thoughts, plus it being Friday might help too!!  There’s so much negativity and drama constantly surrounding us….but, with the desire for better WE can choose, WE can decide and WE can change some of it little by little within our own lives and the lives of others around us by simply choosing to be happier!!  Ya ya, you may be thinking this sounds impossible, what can you, just one person do? But….ALL things are possible especially as more people join in!!

Would you prefer to contribute and spread negativity, drama, hatred & bitterness or would you prefer to contribute and spread love, smiles, laughter, positivity, encouragement & happiness?!?!  The decision is yours.  Sometimes, despite our right to Freedom of Speech it is better to bite our tongue and take the higher road if we cannot say anything nice, positive and to simply avoid contributing to the negative fuel of others especially those whom will never listen to different points of views objectively.  Sometimes, we should choose to save and share some of our words and thoughts with those we can have a constructive conversation with rather than a destructive one.

Ya ya, blah blah blah…..but, if I can ever make you smile, laugh or feel better about yourself in any way with what I write then that makes me smile and proves one person can make a difference even if only briefly.😃  You never know who’s day you may improve by simply being nice, by simply being positive, by simply sharing a smile with, YOU may be what someone needs to brighten their day!!  Take a chance and try less negativity and drama, try to look for the positives within your life and that surrounds you…..I Dare You!!  You might be surprised at how it improves your Life as well.  Big Hugs & Much Luv 2 U All  Thanks for Reading my Thoughts……..Robin Robinson

I write these words with a heavy heart for the people of our Great Country, the United States of America……

My Thoughts ~ I write these words with a heavy heart for the people of our Great Country, the United States of America.  Maybe you agree, maybe you disagree, maybe my words will make you think a little differently ~ these are my thoughts:

So much negativity and drama going on around us in this World and within our own Country.  It deeply saddens me, upsets me and disappoints me in many ways but yet I cannot live my Life with negativity and hatred, I cannot live in fear and I just cannot let it consume me.  Yet, it saddens me greatly at how it is affecting so many who don’t realize it and who thrive on the negativity and continue to push segregation from within……we are ALL Human Beings none of us is better than the other!!

I wish more people could learn to agree to disagree and yet still get along.  What has happened in the PAST is in the Past and there’s nothing anyone can do to change it, it’s our History.  You have to learn from it and move forward and attempt to make things better for yourself and those around you!!  Dwelling on the negatives of yesterday eats at your soul and draws more negative energy rather than producing positives.  Destroying parts of History and Separating ourselves from within is such a sad negative.

I completely agree that we ALL have the right to Freedom of Speech but yet when it comes to Patriotism and Respect I feel it trumps it.  There’s a time and a place for it, a positive and constructive way to do it……I would never sit down in a Court of Law when asked to rise as the judge enters, I would never stay sitting down while others stand for the Canadian Anthem or any other Country out of respect let alone my OWN County!!! Out of knowing and understanding a small fraction of our History, the Sacrifices and the Meanings behind why these have been traditions for so long, for knowing that many have made and still DO make sacrifices and that so many have and still are giving the ultimate sacrifice every day.  These Sacrifices allow us to continue to have our Freedoms, the Freedoms in which we still have today that many others around the World do not.

We ALL have a Heart, we ALL Bleed Red.  Our ethnicity, our skin color, our religious beliefs, what our ancestors did, what our parents did, what we ourselves have done in the past and who we voted for or support shouldn’t matter.  We are ALL the same on the inside.  We need to learn to get along just as we teach our kids to do with their siblings and others at school, as we even teach our dogs to get along with other dogs and cats…..why should we accept anything less from ourselves?!?!  SHAME on us all for allowing this to happen!!

In the end, in the final end we ALL die the same….our Hearts stop beating and we go cold….we go cold as our souls leave our bodies…..how does this NOT prove that we are all the same, that we are indeed equals?!?!  Stop punishing each other because of our differences and because of what happened years ago….

We should be Uniting and becoming stronger as a Nation instead of this pissing match of who’s better than whom or who’s ancestors had it worse so therefore deserve more and so on……  We are ALL human beings, we are all equals and if we started acting like equals instead of dividing ourselves like grade schoolers afraid of getting “Cooties” from the other girls or boys we would become a much stronger and happier America once again. UNITED States of America needs to stay “United”.

If you were in a car crash right in front of me and you needed help I would NOT sit idle by and just watch because YOU were of a different color or because you supported a different candidate or because you had different religious beliefs or because you were a person who Serves & Protects or even because you were a prison inmate on a transport bus who may have murdered someone!!  I would rush to your side and still help you as best I could no matter what because I have a heart, just like you do!!!  I believe we are ALL equals and deserve to be treated with Kindness, Compassion & Love no matter what the circumstances just as so many Men & Women of our Great Country do every single day in many varying capacities!!!  We don’t have to be born here, we don’t have to have the same religious or political beliefs, we don’t have to have the same skin color or same ancestry DNA to be an American, that’s what makes this Country so Great!

I am NOT writing this to start a debate or go back and forth with anyone…..this is NOT intended to start ANY arguments about different beliefs and ways of thinking.  This is MY Freedom of Speech and my thought as of late.  So Please, out of respect if you wish to leave a negative comment, wish to debate or if I simply pissed you off and you want to let me know it…..Please DON’T do it on here.  Yes, you too have Freedom of Speech rights, I’m simply requesting you address your grievances with me directly and elsewhere. Thank You….     Thanks for Reading my Thoughts……Robin Robinson ~ a Proud American Military Mom 8-23-17
