More about Ashley

My mom started a blog

I am so excited that my mom @rhondasummer joined wordpress. I have talked to her about it for a while and she now has her own blog yaaaay. I am so proud of her and how good she has done so far. Blogging can be so hard at first but she flew past the first steps. Here is to my mom, I know you are going to do amazing things with your blog.

I am so blessed/lucky

I say this to myself all the time but I know it is true. I read that people who are actually lucky tell themselves that they are lucky all the time. And with so many reasons to feel thankful lol I am going to make it like Thanksgiving everyday.

I am most blessed to have is my family. They have always loved me for I am and don’t ever tear me down. So many people have family members that hurt them so bad and I am so blessed to have the most awesome people in my life.

I am blessed to have working legs. I always thought about this but did not really feel until I got my Fitbit. Now I really know how devastated I would be if I could not walk and how much I took my legs for granted.

I am so blessed to not be in jail. I know this one does not really apply to me because I have done anything to warrant jail time but a mistake could happen to anyone. like being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Science proves people innocent all the time who have been falsely imprisoned. So I feel very blessed to have not ever been caught in that cross fire.

I am so lucky to have my job in fast food. My job is not great and yes I hope to one day do better. But I feel blessed to have had the strength to work there for 10 years. It has taught so many lessons and I am lucky to work with such wonderful people.

I am lucky to have my experience. I remember what I was like 20 years ago and lol I want to kick that idiots a$$. I could never feel as happy as I work to feel if it were not for learning to deal with sadness.  And although I know depression could always come back at least now I have so many tools to deal with it.

I am so lucky to be a nice person. I know I have had bad days and snapped at people but I try to be a nice person. I am happier when I try to get along and put out an effort for niceness. I am really lucky this comes kind of easy from me.

I am really lucky to have opportunities. No matter what you can always try to better yourself and I am so lucky to have barely realized this. I guess this could be a glass half full kind of blessing. I just think if you look forward to opportunities instead of looking back at negativity holding you down, then you will always be happier and stronger.

I am lucky to see beautiful views. Not from anywhere high up but since I don’t live next to any tall buildings I get to see some spectacular sunsets. I am so blessed to see something so beautiful almost everyday.

Feeling blessed is something I have to work at everyday. I am not a perfect lol do as I say not as I do. But I strive for this. I want to become this. I want to preach this. I want to keep working on this blog post until it is my most worked on post. I want to think about every second that I can so when my mind wanders the negative zone this blog post will be burned into my mind and point me back on the positive road.

Happy National Middle Child Day

Actully I am a little late on this one because National Middle Child Day was 2 days ago on August 12. I still wanted to post about this because I am a middle child hahaa

I have one older sister and a younger brother and sister who are twins. I always wanted to be an only child. LOL it is so funny because I always hear kids who are the only child always wish they had a sibling. I guess it is a classic case of the grass is always greener on the other side.

Happy Birthday to my mom

Today is my moms birthday and I hope she has a great one. We have always shared a birthday month because our birthdays are 3 days apart. Well technically 30 years and 3 days apart lol but 3 days between our birthday each year. We don’t really get each other a present since it kind of cancels out haha one year I gave her 20$ and she gave it back to me on my birthday 3 days later.

I love her so much and wish I could through a giant party on top of the Empire State Building but at least I can write her this happy birthday blog post.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE BEST MOM EVA

I am never getting married

I know you probably have heard this one before and I know it sounds cliché but its true. I will never get married. I definitely am never having kids never ever ever. I have known since 1995 that this life is not for me. When I was ten I saw my sister and other girls swooning and talking boyfriends/marriage and I was like gross.

I just like being by myself A LOT and I always have. Although I know I will always want to have a roommate and a dog but never anyone I have to check in with when buying something and let them keep tabs on my choices gross. I like making my own decisions.

It has always been so funny to me when anybody uses ” you will never find a man” as an insult. I’m like noted, good to know, you just stated the obvious haha

If you still think I will change my mind one day then consider this. For 20 years I have known this to be true and that is a long time to take to make a decision. I have now surpassed the age my parents were when they had me.

p.s. I would like to point out that anyone who gets married I say congratulations to and I am happy for them. I can see when a marriage is beautiful and how it makes people happy. If this is the way you choose then more power to you. I did not mean to offend anyone just wanted to tell you what I have chosen. To each his own.

WARNING THIS BLOG WILL CONTAIN BAD GRAMMAR

I have always had trouble with reading and writing. I am dyslexic and it has really been like running with a parachute on. I try to use spell check and grammar check but I know some things get past it.

I think this is a huge reason I wanted to become a blogger is because I always thought my words were useless. I never dreamed that I could write something that could be interesting. I really started blogging to help with my typing and grammar but it developed into something that was so much more. I have always tried to read, write and type at least a few hours a day to help with an ongoing treatment for dyslexia but I also know it will be there forever. So please don’t judge my blog to harshly. I’m just a person like you except I don’t have the grammar advantage you have.

All that being said I am so blessed and this little hang up does not get me down. It is a part of me and frankly it could have been much worse. I am not trying to make anyone feel sorry for me I just want grammar nazis to cool it a little bit when it comes to this blog.

When I am not ashtamisprime I’m big ashley

Please no one take offence because I’m only called big Ashley cause I am so much taller than the other two Ashley’s at my job. Medium Ashley and baby Ashley are short enough for me to rest my elbows on their heads when I am skating. I kind of understand why people would find this offensive for me because all the girls with big in front of their name are usually lacking in the personal hygiene department. But as you can see from my photos (I hope lol) that is not the first thing that comes to mind.TimePhoto_20170701_194137timephoto_20170807_191036.jpg
