There’s so many Anna Delvey’s @ Anna Sorokin and Elizabeth Holmes’ in the world these days that swoon those around them and “made” people believe in them for the things that they told them. So many “stories” and lies that they told without blinking an eye or feeling any guilt while doing it.
My friend even told me that one of her friend’s girlfriend lied about her profession, her family background and so much more. The only thing that was real and true about her was her name. How crazy is that? How did the family finally found out the truth? The hired a Private Investigator to check on her before they allowed the son to marry her and boy, were they shocked!!
So, the BIG question is, What and Who can we believe in this day and age? How do we know that the person we’re interacting with is telling us the truth about who they are? What more about how do they truly feel towards us or is it all manipulation just to get things to go their way?
This is why I still sometimes wished that I was living in the 1960’s when things were simpler and there weren’t that many “interesting” or extra “intelligent” people that’s as creative and crazy as people in the 21st century. LOL!!
This is just a food for thought for everyone out there. My advice is to be more careful with those that you let into your life. Invest in those that invest back in you. Be it time or effort. Also, always trust your gut. If something feels off, high chances that it’s too good to be true.
I created the Whit3puppy name back in 2002 but, finally turned it into a retail brand in 2021. As we enter the third month of 2022, the brand has 3 products under the label with more to come. I decided to kick start the brand with organic peanut butter treats which I named Peanut Delight and then added Pumpkin Spice and finally Purple Dream – Organic Japanese Purple Sweet Potatoes.
They say that when you, “Do what you love, and you’ll never work another day in your life…” I feel lucky enough to turn my passion into a business. Seeing those crazy tail wags and happy little faces is priceless. Don’t forget the drools too. LOL!! I know you get what I mean. 😛
I’m looking to grow the brand further with time and the support we get from our loyal, satisfied clientele.
18th Dec 2021 – A year since you left us Mom. How time has passed us by. It’s still surreal that you’re gone. I guess a huge part of me still doesn’t want to believe that it’s true. You’ve been missed dearly by everyone who were lucky enough to meet you. A kind soul that never thought twice in helping those in need, a true friend, a feisty and bubbly person and a loving, caring mother to me.
I know that you wished that I’d stop crying. Trust me, I wish I could but, the pain of knowing that you’re not around hurts a lot and it breaks me from time to time. The emotions comes in waves and when it does, it hits hard. So, please forgive me when I breakdown. It only meant that you left a huge impact on me, on many peoples’ lives.
How are things on the other side Mom? I hope that you’ve been coping well there. I always joke with Dad that you have alot of catching up with there with family and friends that left years ago. I hope that things on the other side has been good and that you’re happy. We’ll never stop missing you. I hope that you love the roses that Dad and I got for you and the Rose scented beeswax candle that I made for you.
28th of October 2021 would have been my parents’ 38th Wedding Anniversary. They met when my Mom was 18 and my Dad was 24. The duration of them being together is one thing but what matters more was how they were like together all those years – how they handled their differences and the tough times together. It only made their relationship stronger than ever with every obstacle they faced. The biggest thing was how difficult it was when Mom couldn’t walk at the end of June 2020 and she eventually became bedridden. How my Dad looked after her without any help from any Caregiver only proof how much he truly loved Mom till her last breath. That’s true love.
When You Say Nothing At All was my Mom’s favourite song. Mom, this is for you. We miss you so much if you don’t already know.
My parents’ relationship gives me hope that true love exists and that I’d be lucky to someday meet someone that could truly love me and stay with me no matter what because they truly loved me and that we could work through things together no matter how tough they may be ego being put aside because our relationship matters more than anything else.
