Close But No Cigar


Assuming that someone who wrote that was given a non Cuban cigar. We spend our lives going for goals getting getting things done and finishing every task. When reality sets in you don’t always get what you wanted. Either the best quality was too expensive or wrong for you somehow. In relationships some call it settling others just say no one is perfect. (Statistically how many perfect humans are out there?) However one who looks at the glass half full says this person is just right for me, regardless of their flaws. It truly is what you are willing to accept. Everyone has placed an importance on some part of their life, saying I will not accept anything other than Cuban but other items they say this will work. What do you accept as the best Cigar in life and relationships? Do you snub your nose at others because they don’t value the same as you? Life is about accepting but unfortunately humans don’t realize the majority isn’t the best even though they do their best. So remember to accept someone at their best because they are being their best in every way possible. So be your best you are going to be loved.

It’s Over?


Yes, the voice keeps saying that in my head.

But regardless if it is or isn’t you still have a choice.

Yes, you still have a choice.


Vote for the one that is professional.

Vote for the one that voted to keep safety.

Yes, that means no guns.

You aren’t safe if all of sudden or within the past years you feel you need to pack protection.

You aren’t safe if you may need to go to a different country because you have an etopic pregnancy.

You aren’t safe if you can’t say what you want. Offending someone with respectful honesty is one thing offending them with hate is another.

You aren’t safe if you have to hide your religion or sexual orientation or stay with your own race.

You aren’t financially safe if they take away Medicare and social security

Vote because you believe in the person not for their name.

This time of year the spooks and howls take over.

Scary mazes and haunted houses abound

Tales of horror fill the ears

Parties are abundant with masks

Black cats kept home out of fear

Hospital’s mayhem

Police overworked

Candy everywhere

Whether you live in Salem

Or watch from another country

Know sometimes the greatest fear

Is only a nightmare.

How To Find Your Career


When it is an easy yes

When thinking occurred?

It was that fast

Maybe even muscle memory

Rote reaction

Natural intuition

Does it hurt someone?


Do I like it?


Does it hurt me negatively?


Then clear that path

Make it your career

If it isn’t already

– Jennie Nawrocki



The first year alone

Was hopeful

As was the second

Then the third was

Hospitals and crying

Next six was just

Crying with hope smashed

Again and again

Until crying was no more

The next years of being alone

Listening to yelling

Hurting and internal crying

And life leaving me behind

I know.

-Jennie Nawrocki

New Adventures



Exciting anticipation

Will it go bad?

Will it go well?

How’s my attitude?

How’s their attitude?

Goals should align

Or at least not conflict

It’s big time

After pandemic slowdown

Pace yourself

Everything in moderation

But if you have the opportunity

Take it


And excuses

Aren’t allowed

Be ready

Be quick

Be efficient

Be respectful

Don’t forget

To be thankful

-Jennie Nawrocki

Years I have been writing posts and years others have said when are you going to write about something other then sadness and grief? When are you going to believe you are in control of your own destiny?

Still here nothing has changed still the same person, same problems, and same lifestyle.

I am so far in quicksand or Guantanamo Bay that I don’t know what I could grab onto to get out. What do I do?

Said my affirmations, said my prayers, talked with my family, friends and nothing is budging.

Move Jennie Move but no real estate person will return my inquiries, no new job offers unless they are controlled by the previous job.

I can’t move, but move, then stop following me every where I go. I know I certainly don’t follow you. Give me my freedom. I deserve freedom. Jennie Nawrocki deserves freedom.
