CAN’T WAIT FOR 2014 TO BE OVER … MOVING ON?

Posted in Family Events & Celebrations with tags , , , , , , , on December 31, 2014 by tiltdiary

I have heard this sentence many times this month, “I can’t wait for the year to be over.” 2014 was worth shit, right? Let’s quickly move on and look forward to the New Year. Let’s get our hopes up and see if 2015 will deliver better things. Just like many people — when looking back — they cannot wait to move and get out of the damn city, or cannot wait to sign the divorce papers because that spouse was a moron in all aspects, and we also cannot wait to dump those stupid, annoying friends and replace them with new ones, and even if the dog is too old some people dump it at the shelter to start fresh with a new puppy. More fun, better success, real love, and more money are expected to lay in the future and let’s quickly forget about the old stuff, let’s move on as fast as possible. But have you noticed that with the beginning of the New Year, or a new relationship, or another city to live in nothing internally really changes unless you can appreciate and see all the important lessons that those old, shitty experiences brought you? Maybe, being so driven to move on isn’t really the solution. Of course, we all want progress but there is no progress if you just simply aren’t able to acknowledge all the wonderful challenges and opportunities for change that the old offered you. So tonight, I look back at 2014, and I can be very happy about the growth I have achieved through some of the painful experiences that I was able to face. God, I have learned so much, I have learned to stand up for myself, I have become even stronger, I have come a little closer to being the best person that I can be, and I am thankful for everything I conquered, and I don’t want those experiences to go away or forget them. It was good, not easy, but I feel fortunate to have made it through … And I am looking forward to continue my journey with myself … In good times and in bad, in health and in sickness, till death do me part. I wish you all a wonderful, insightful transition into 2015.

STRIPPER BULLY

Posted in Jones' wisdom with tags , , , , , , , on December 30, 2014 by tiltdiary

When I started working at my club many years ago, the club bully had set an eye on me right away. I was a big thorn in her eye, and she started scheming against me the minute she saw me. She would spread rumor about my boobs being fake, attacked me physically in the dressing room where nobody could witness it so she was safe from being fired, tried to bad mouth me in front of customer, she even once teamed up with another hater dancer and they tried to distract one of my regulars, but it backfired, and my customer recognized their little charade and tipped me double, plus the other hater girl accidently broke one of the chair’s legs she sat on and hit her head on a table behind her while trying to distract my customer at the front railing. After about a year of trying to destroy my reputation and trying to get me to move on to the next club the bully finally gave up, and she acted like I was her best friend sharing intimate relationship and health stories of hers with me. I had instinctively disarmed her. Just like a dog that misbehaves, instead of fighting with her or trying to make her my friend, I had just ignored her. I wouldn’t acknowledge any stories she would tell in the dressing room to get everybody’s attention and approval, I wouldn’t help with advice on costuming even if she asked me directly, I wouldn’t say good-bye or hello to her. Thinking back, she really didn’t exists for me except that I did watch my back, to protect myself from physically being harmed. I am stronger and way more athletic than her, so only an ambush could’ve been dangerous for me, so I stayed alert, yet, never gave her meaning, pretended like I didn’t hear her nor understoond her language, and even acted like I didn’t see her. She was none-existent to me, not even a nuisance, but occasionally I couldn’t help but laughing at her desperation trying to take me down while making the biggest idiot out of herself. Looking back at it, I realize the club once more taught me an important lesson about life: how to deal with negativity and bullies in general. Bullies exist everywhere. In your family, in school, in college, in your work place, and so on.

Often, people that are being bullied cannot stop talking about the injustice and hurt that they experience because of the bully. Parents will talk with their children for hours about the bully and plans are being hatched how to get a bully off your back. But all this energy and scheming against a bully will give this person exactly what they want: attention and empowerment. Bullies are really insecure puffed up little losers that have discovered that by making a lot of noise they can cause a lot of negative commotion. It’s time to teach the bullies a lesson by ignoring them and acting like they don’t exist. Don’t let a bully spoil your fun. Because bullies are really just blowing smoke. Watch your back and ignore the bully to your best ability. Your bully will get eventually get bored and move on to the next victim.

SETTING YOUR INTENTIONS

Posted in Jones' wisdom with tags , , , , , on December 29, 2014 by tiltdiary

It is not just about what you do. It is about how you do it and what you feel in your heart when you do it. And most importantly, if you can detach and just do what feels most right to you being able to let go of the expectations of the outcome. It is not only about what you visualize for your future but also about how much you can appreciate the moment, what you have right now, and what you have created so far. Now is the time to live your life embracing that the only stable and secure experience is change.

BE SEXY FOR YOUR LOVER

Posted in Stripper Secrets with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on December 27, 2014 by tiltdiary

Being sexy takes effort. You cannot be sexy by hanging out on the couch all day, or not brushing your teeth in the morning when trying to get your morning delight in. Lazy isn’t sexy. Comfortable isn’t sexy. Sexy is active, smelling good, healthy, being in shape, and taking care of yourself. Sexy means getting up to brush your teeth before you kiss your partner in the morning, sexy means to shave, wear the stockings and high heels (even if the flats would’ve been more comfortable), sexy means to choose the thong, although, your cotton boy shorts feel better, sexy means adventurous and witty. Sexy means to continue the riddle that never ends. Get your sexy on.
