I’m Not Ready to Make Nice

I meant to post this blog last Thursday night  (keep that in mind when you read it), so I’m a little behind…..

Evidentally reality and others didn’t head my warning of what happens when I get pushed into a corner. I took the high road this week. I didn’t have to, but I did anyways. I had hoped that the same courtesy would be extended back to me, but it seems the other party decided they not only didn’t want to do the same, they also wanted to play as dirty as they could.  I took the higher road because that is the right thing to do. Because that is how I was raised. Because that is what God tells us to do. We don’t always have to be right or have the last word, but we do have to be the better person. But let me make sure one thing is clear, being the better person doesn’t mean I will just lay down and let you run over me.

With what is being thrown at me and what is currently on my plate, I wish a simple yoga class could make it all better. It may temporarily relax me, but it won’t make this go away and it won’t solve any of the problems I am being faced with.

I don’t know how much clearer I can be with reality and this “other party” – I’M NOT READY TO MAKE NICE! I’M NOT READY TO BACK DOWN! (And yes, I’m still mad as hell!) I am not being overly dramatic when I say this is seriously my life you are messing with, and I WILL NOT go away or go down without a fight. This is no longer business, now you made it very, very personal. And when you mess with my life, you not only have me to face, you have my entire family to deal with.
And may I add… I am not the only one in my family with martial arts training. On top of that, one of my nephews fought in Iraq and the other is a damn good shot when he hunts. The Bowyers is not a family you really want to mess with.

Dixie Chicks – “I’m Not Ready to Make Nice”
Forgive, sounds good
Forget, I’m not sure I could
They say time heals everything
But I’m still waiting

I’m through with doubt
There’s nothing left for me to figure out
I’ve paid a price
And I’ll keep paying

I’m not ready to make nice
I’m not ready to back down
I’m still mad as hell and
I don’t have time to go round and round and round
It’s too late to make it right
I probably wouldn’t if I could
‘Cause I’m mad as hell
Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

I know you said
Can’t you just get over it
It turned my whole world around
And I kind of like it

I made my bed and I sleep like a baby
With no regrets and I don’t mind sayin’
It’s a sad sad story when a mother will teach her
Daughter that she ought to hate a perfect stranger
And how in the world can the words that I said
Send somebody so over the edge
That they’d write me a letter
Sayin’ that I better shut up and sing
Or my life will be over

I’m not ready to make nice
I’m not ready to back down
I’m still mad as hell and
I don’t have time to go round and round and round
It’s too late to make it right
I probably wouldn’t if I could
‘Cause I’m mad as hell
Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

I’m not ready to make nice
I’m not ready to back down
I’m still mad as hell and
I don’t have time to go round and round and round
It’s too late to make it right
I probably wouldn’t if I could
‘Cause I’m mad as hell
Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

Forgive, sounds good
Forget, I’m not sure I could
They say time heals everything
But I’m still waiting
