Facebook You Lovely Place Of Inspiration

Idle Hearts wrote this post on Facebook and I just about fall over: I am a January baby, a southern woman, not a gal…a gal has a totally different meaning, it is almost derogatory, so I don’t tolerate crap.  I think that is a God given gift I have, but as for the naughtiness…well in high school/early college, up until I was a mom, I was a HUGE flirt; does that make me naughty?  I don’t know.  As for rude.  OMG do you think this aristocratic Irish Catholic southern woman would be RUDE???  Here I have to make a confession:  I am what I call strategically rude, (and this is a southern trait), if I don’t like you…well be prepared.  Am I proud of that as Idle would have us believe we should be…OMG NO!

But here is the thing.  Some of these are traits that in and of themselves are just traits: cute, (here I think they mean fun as in flirtatious), sweet, fun, charming, kind, caring, fun to be with, intelligent.  Then there are those thing I would think no one of us want: emotionally crazy, (unless here they mean goofy, but I don’t think so), player, lazy, rude, naughty, (a here I am adding in a sexually demeaning way; such as portraying yourself as being slutty).

1) JANUARY= you are naughty and rude you don’t tolerate crap
2) FEBRUARY= you are too knowing
3) MARCH= you are cute & (players)
4) APRIL= you are sweet
5) MAY= you are fun to be with
6) JUNE= you are God fearing
7) JULY= you are charming & loving ♥ AUGUST= you are sexy (very attractive)
9) SEPTEMBER= you are emotionally crazy
10) OCTOBER= you are seductive and romantic
11) NOVEMBER= you are kind & caring
12) DECEMBER= you are Cute, intelligent (& sometimes lazy)

Be proud of your month and add up friends in the same month with you.

There are things within us that we just wish we didn’t have: a trait, an attitude, a belief.  Often these negative traits we are experiencing are the result of how well we feel we are connected with a purpose in life, how connected we fell with others, how connected we feel with God.   The more connection we feel in each of our life castings, (categories): purpose, others, God the more supported and uplifted we feel; we feel literally and spiritually lighter, as if weights have been lifted from us.
