“Strength in the body (strength in the body), Strength in the Mind (strength in the mind)”….ATA Tiny Tigers

 

I had good, valid reasons to quit. Failed a test, time management requirements had changed…LOL, Spousal Death, but even at the apex of complete defeat, I had to remember that I made a commitment, and yea though I walked through the valley of severe self-doubt and anguish, quitting…was not in my soul. I’m not special, it’s just that I’ve run enough 5k’s to know that as the Finish Line comes into view, and your body is begging you to rest, that’s when all the fears and doubts of the path that you left behind meets the one that lies before you. Hell who knows, you may trip, you may fall….Strength in the Mind….Make It Your WILL, and you WILL Make It Your Way….but it won’t be easy.

Some….have a hard time understand addictions, but I don’t. I remember when Princess was little and she walked up to a woman in a wheelchair and asked her, “Why don’t you just get up?”. I mean, to her it seemed just that easy. As adults the curious questioning of the young age is long gone, and our questions become more harsh…..”Why don’t you just quit?!”…..Hell, if it were that easy, they freaking would…! I’ve made no secret of my admiration for Robert Downey Jr, because he came back from the pit of despair, to be THE Iron Man we know and love today. He had help, true, but mostly he had Strength In The Mind, a complete reversal of what he had learned, to stand up to his addiction, and recover. I’m sure he didn’t want to, because I’ve known addicts who’d rather die, than quit….No one chooses that life….but some, don’t get that….

We’ve become a society of oxymoron’s. We hate the bullying of our children, but think nothing of doing it to each other. I had a conversation with my Instructor yesterday, a woman I do indeed respect, but it felt bullyish…I held my ground against her, LOL, because I do not easily bully, I would hope our President doesn’t either. With his first 100 days behind him, Trump now admits that the job of the US Presidency, was harder than he thought it would be. Well yes. Every time I start a 5k or a workout class, or any project (like Nursing School), I always think, “I got this“…..because those who went before me, made it look easy. Whenever anyone asks, “What would you advise” I always say, “You GOTTA WANT IT, and you gotta stay humble“. There’s great wisdom in humility…..The only reason I keep going….is because my mind, the sheer Will of my stubborn nature, tells me, that I may damn well fail at what I do, but I will never quit…..You will never defeat me, and trust, some have tried. In two short weeks, I’ll be graduating, and one day, you’ll be reading my book……So….

Strength In The Mind.…You gotta want it….you gotta want it….you gotta want it because the body doesn’t! Whatever challenge you face, whatever dream you chase, it is not going to be given to you…why should it? You will not respect it…you will not enjoy it. When I wanted to quit Nursing School, I had great, caring, solid advice from both sides, but it was one small angel, a classmate who wrote to me in a PM, “I’m not going to tell you what to do, I’m only going to show you where you are right now“….and like that, I could see, though the haze, pain and anxiety, the Finish Line. Strength In The Mind....even as my hair fell out, and severe anxiety gripped my soul, I did it, but not alone. We are called to help each other…please do not judge what you do not understand…you are hurting people, good people. Gotta Go, Princess Pageant today. I don’t care if Duchess wins or loses, I told her to just have fun. A day without a nap for both of us, and you’ll see Strength In The Mind, my mind…Gotta love a Tiny Tiger who acts just like her father….Don’t Judge Me…I’m not the only prideful, stubborn one around here….Be Blessed.

Remember you set the Tone, you ARE the Example. Be KIND to each other. Show GRACE and MERCY to all those who cross your path today. With your Daily Affirmations complete, enjoy your Saturday.

Top Ten Most Powerful Marvel Beings

“Hey Mom, who would win in a battle against…….?”  A young Sweetness

And so it began, a conversation, between mommy and son, that started when he was 3, and is still going today. His father gets involved, then we all get on our electronics and research. In Orlando, Florida (right before going to Universal Studio’s) we were discussing the Marvel Universe, when waitress said to us, “It is so nice to see a family talking together like you are doing” Yes well, we were contrasting/comparing the power ability of Thanos to Galactus. I found a quote by Stan Lee in an interview he gave….I won the debate….What can I say, we love our superhero’s.

The Top Ten Most Powerful Marvel Beings….written by Sweetness…if you know any of these characters, feel free to tag them…we’d love to read their comments…..enjoy.

 

Iron Man

 

10. Iron Man

A rich, handsome (I wrote that) MIT graduate at 15, he built a suit with an Arc Reactor power source, from scratch, that gave him the ability to fly, withstand superhero force (and falls). He is the founder of The Avengers, and fights alongside some of the most powerful superhero’s in the Galaxy.

Captain America
Captain America

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

9. Captain America

Created via a Super Soldier experiment (oversaw by Tony Stark’s father), Captain America became a Super Hero Soldier whom fought Red Skull for the Tesseract. His strength, cunning and strong moral code help him overcome his foe’s. He is also known as the 1st and perhaps the cutest, Avenger.

Spider Man
Spider Man

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8. Spiderman

Bitten by a radioactive spider, Peter Parker absorbed the power of a spider. He can climb walls, create silk webs strong enough to hold even the largest of Marvel Bad Guys. Spiderman wants to be an Avenger, but the guys won’t let him in. Poor Spiderman.

 

The Hulk
The Hulk

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

7. Hulk

A Gamma Ray accident turned Bruce Banner, an intelligent Scientist, into Hulk, a raging mass of sheer power that is only contained by Banner’s meek demeanor. When he’s angry, his strength is multiplied to the point that he can rival even the most powerful beings in the universe….like Thanos, Thor, and Loki. He is a member of the Avenger Team, and fell under the power of the Scarlet Witch, and destroyed South Africa.

Wolverine
Wolverine

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6. Wolverine

His strength is in his ability to regenerate his wounds. Several times, he’s been mortally wounded, only to heal and victor in his battles. He won his greatest battle against the Phoenix, using his powers to survive her blows to his body.

Scarlet Witch
Scarlet Witch

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. Scarlet Witch

The Scarlet Witch can tap into mystic energy for reality-altering effects. Because of this power, many died after she controlled and manipulated the minds of the Avengers, except for Hawkeye, and he said his mind had already been controlled once before (The 1st Avenger film).

Loki
Loki

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Loki

Loki possesses one of the Infinity Stones in his scepter; which gives him power. He is the God of michef, and the Brother of Thor. He is cunning, calculated, and merciless, in his quest to destroy his brother and rule over Asgard and Midgard.

Thor
Thor

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Thor

Thor is the blood-son of Odin, All-Father of the Asgardians, and Jord, who was also known as Gaea, the goddess who was one of the Elder Gods. He also wields the power of the Mjolnir, his hammer. He is a powerful member of The Avengers, and a gentlemen whom fights to protect the human race; whom he dearly loves. (Thank you Thor).

Thanos
Thanos

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Thanos

The 1st bad guy on the list, Thanos, has been introduced to us by the Guardians of the Galaxy. His quest to obtain all the Infinity Stones, is rumored to be the subject of the next Avengers and Guardians film. Thanos is a god from the race of Eternals; which he killed several years ago. His power comes from the Infinity Gauntlet.

Galactus
Galactus

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. Galactus

When interviewed, Stan Lee, creator of the Marvel Universe, responded that out of all the characters in his creation, it was Galactus, not THANOS who reigned as the Supreme Power in the Universe. Before our universe, another universe survived, which collapsed in upon itself. Galactus was the sole remaining survivor of the collapsed universe and absorbed his powers from the energy of that collapse. His only weakness is that he has a unsustianable hunger for living planets….in modern day, Astronomy, Galactus is the epitomy of a Black Hole, most powerful in the universe (not love).

 

The Top Ten Most Powerful Marvel Beings is the second guest post by my son, whose only 10 years old. He writes his articles, and I simply edit, illustrate and publish. Just as the 1st article he wrote, Top Ten Most Powerful X-men, I will remind all that he is only 10 years old. Heck, even I debated some of his choices….this is simply him giving you HIS opinion of the Beings, after the research of  such movies as: The Avengers, Captain America, Iron Man, Guardians of the Galaxy, Spiderman, and of course, X-men. You are welcome to agree, disagree, debate and discuss, what you are NOT allowed to do is demean him. Remember, I am a mommy 1st, and I can handle his business….but we would appreciate constructive feedback, because after all, feedback (good and bad) how we grow in our craft.

I have come to the conclusion that no matter how engaging, how polarizing, how ignorant, or wrong any post on Facebook may be, I am going to ignore said post the 1st time, hide said post the 2nd time, delete said post and poster the 3rd time. It isn’t that I don’t like a good debate, I do, but debates with people who are not sitting directly in front of you tend to sway toward the cowards side of the argument, and frankly, I have no time for cowards. Truth be told, I’m hard pressed to find anyone who would call me stupid to my face (well, Merrill does), but behind the security of a profile picture everyone becomes a freaking Avenger. Well I’ve seen Robert Downey, Jr….you “sir” are no Iron Man…Just Saying.

Boys in the Hood had a scene with Cuba Gooding Jr, swinging at thin air. The enemy faceless, and aloof, his frustration and fears REAL….I GET IT! I mean, if you were standing in front of me and said some of the things people write, I’d punch you in the face, and YES, there’s precedence for that. With that said, an enemy that hides his face, is an enemy of cowardice, and frankly, I have no time for cowards….AND That’s the 2nd time I’ve wrote that….I hate cowards. I’ve come too far, and accomplished too much to have some idiot bait me into a senseless argument. I feel sorry for some of these scumbags. It must be so hard to live in their mother’s basement, with acne, no hope for a woman (you know what I’m talking about) with nothing to do all day but be all cowardly…that sucks. These “Sirs” have my pity, not respect….so be gone.

It’s not the Babies/Toddlers/Little Bros and Sis’s of FB who are creating the mess. They can easily be ignored, because after all their posts consists of, “Would you miss me if I were dead”, “A jealous boyfriend is a good man” (Um NO), and, “My bestie is the bestest”. The real asshats here are the ones who are only quasi-intelligent (depends on whom you ask), and usually a “good” friend. Nope, it’s time to lose some Facebook weight, so if you notice that you can no longer judge my posts or call me a racist, don’t be alarmed….Its YOU, not me. If you want to argue with me, face me like a person with some STONES, like Merrill does, then accept the consequences with some STONES, like Merrill does….I have no time….for cowards, and YES, that’s the 3rd time I’ve written that….do you get it…..ENOUGH. Okay, gotta go. Merrill said something last night…I must now go punch him in the face. See? It’s just that easy. Besides, it isn’t my fault….he shouldn’t have SAID IT. Be Blessed.
