Sometimes you gotta be a Bitch

Why do we feel the need to bite our tongues or refrain from standing up for ourselves? All I know is ignoring that which is painful does more harm than good. It festers. It boils. It always comes out. Speak your truth.

Those that have your best interest will hear you. Those that don’t, well you’ve found out just where you stand. It tears at your soul to tolerate behavior which goes against your belief system. So don’t! Being a loving and kind person does not mean you must tolerate bad behavior. Sometimes you gotta be a bitch.


Clifford experienced fireworks for the first time New Year’s Eve. He was very frightened by the loud booms. He had just nodded off when they began. I was not sure what to do so I turned on some music. Whatcha know? My dog is as big a music lover as me! Kismet!!

I did discover the calming effects of music on him once before. I was exhausted. We had a particularly long night and I did not get much sleep. I turned on some music and it acted like a lullaby. The power of music!
