20 minute rule, Sorting through the garbage pileThe 20 minute rule of all parties walking away and taking a break from the argument.20 minute rule, Sorting through the garbage pile by controlled--chaos
One of the hardest things in life is to take emotion out of a situation and to stop and think before we speak or react. The 20 minute rule serves 2 purposes: The first is to give everyone a chance to calm down so things do not escalate to an uncontrollable situation. The second thing it serves is for all parties involved a few moments to clarify the issue and sort through the garbage pile to find a resolution without violence or saying things that don't matter.
By saying doesn't matter means: When we are involved in an altercation with others and it is filled with emotion, we do not stick to the problem of the moment.

You would put a shovelful in and I would dig two back out. Every shovelful you threw in was bigger and bigger, till I couldn't dig as fast as you were filling it up.
One day without notice I was standing on top of the hole, no longer empty but full, overfull. Spilling love out all over and giving life to a blooming, growing

when I was young and searching
I looked for the world to own me
I walked in a daze
never letting anyone have a lot of me
I was tossed aside by all the loved ones in life..
they left, I left but to no avail
every new lover, every new adventure
would this be the place I belonged finally
I existed, half way lived good enough for me
I guess not becasue I kept searching.
till one day..
Once upon a time:
I looked into the eyes of my home.
I found my, where I belong.
I didn't have to build you, or make you structurally sound
I didn't have to mold you or shape you and place your crown
I didn't have to find exotic ingredients for the most delicious recipe
I didn't have to tear you down and rebuild you
I didn't have to plant you in my soil of busted dreams.
I didn't have to take you to the garage to get fixed over and over again
I didn't have to dream you into my reality.
I didn't have to.............
All I had to do was be me..
you are my anchor,
When I am tossed upon the sea
