Simple Sunday


Making a perfect Sunday doesn’t have to cost a penny. Just browse on the internet and look at your favorite things, places, recipes. Make your bucket list. Dreams keep you motivated.

Lighting, location, colors, and touch makes such a huge difference. Bringing it all together in a way that pleases the eye and makes you feel safe, at peace, comfortable, and relaxed is key.

A found this on the internet.  Love, love it.

Take Advantage of TIME. Welcome 2020


It’s Time to Take Advantage of TIME

If there is one thing, I could brainwash everyone to do, it would be to take advantage of time. Use it wisely, cherish every single second. People just read the words but don’t really listen. I know this because there are so many instances, events, people, that I wish I would have cherished more.

Not just the good times but the bad as well. I wish I could have cherished the bad and learned from my mistakes. Eventually I did but it took a few trial runs. Another way I wish I could have taken advantage of time would have been to do the things that I really wanted to do and not have just gone with the flow in fear that I would have upset someone if I didn’t.

There are too many (I’s) in there so I’m going to transition to you….lol  Anything that might remotely represent narcissism I have to switch gears. One of my pet peeves lol.

Another way to take advantage of time is to tell someone how you really feel. You love them, tell them. Who cares what the outcome is, the point of it is that you told them your true feelings. On the flipside, also be honest. Brutally, painstakingly, honest. No holding back. No suffering on the inside because you are afraid to hurt their feelings. It will be worse in the long run. Who knows, that person might not like you either and is going through the same emotions and thoughts you are as well. So, look at it this way, you are doing not only yourself a favor but them also. Sticking it out because you think that time after time things will change, nah it usually doesn’t. Why? Because in your gut you know it won’t and history always repeats itself. When all contemplation fails, listen to your gut!!! I have wasted literally years of my life weighing the pros and cons, be resilient in my fight for true love but when it’s not there, it’s not there. I will leave that for another post lol.

Take advantage of time by not procrastinating. If there is a thought in your mind about doing something, bettering yourself, finishing school, do it. You can’t rewind time and your age. As you get older things can sometimes get harder. Not all the time, just sometimes.

Lastly, but not really because I have a ton more to say but I’m running out of time, is take care of you. Seriously, I underestimated that saying. Totally. Self-care sounds so corny to some, but there is so much truth to it I can’t even begin to tell you. Indulge in the good stuff. Water. Yes water. When I am down and out, I drink water. Drink it. Try it for a day or two and see how your mind clears up and your heart doesn’t ache. Yes, I know it sounds crazy but it worked for me. Either that or I have lost my mind. Okay enough of the water lol. What you do to your body will have an everlasting affect for the rest of your life, so take care of it. Your body, mind, and soul. Take the time to treat yourself right because no one else will do it for you.

On that note I have to hightail it out of here. Happy New Year and I wish you all a million times of happiness, health, and prosperity. Welcome 2020!!

 

 

 

Who’s In??


I don’t know but over the past 2 years I am indulging in doing the things I’ve always wanted to do but had obstacles stopping me for whatever reasons. Too many to list and not enough time to talk about it. Plus nothing is worth mentioning anyway. Life is short. Let bygones be bygones. Live for the moment. Do what you want and need to do now because sometimes those opportunities could vanish just like that.

Lately I have been and you should try it also…..

Take chances, expressing how you really feel, refuse to let people to use you and treat you like shit, actually like/loving yourself for a change, enjoying the moment even when those moments are far and few in between. Lay around and do absolutely nothing, go with your gut instinct, take care of you, mentally, physically, and financially. Have patience, don’t rush life, listen and I mean really listen when people are talking to you. Don’t take yourself or others for granted. Put the phone down, drink water and lots of it, be strong, be positive, and most of all have the gumption and perseverance to whatever it is you want to do in life and NEVER EVER GIVE UP!

My little home office is getting there and I am totally in love with this space. Hey I just added another pic. I got a lamp tonight for my desk. OMG love it. It has a charging port built right in it for my phone. mo5

 

Going to school at age 48


Yes, I’m scared. But, I look at it this way. My kids are 14 and 15 and are able to wipe their own buts and basically eat when they feel hungry lol, so I feel it’s time to do something for myself that is going to hmmm how do I put this…. make me feel whole. Huh? Don’t people usually look for a partner to make them feel “whole?” Lol true and having a companion does help in that department but this is different.

Before I go off on a tangent, my point to this post is my age, 48, I’m going back to school. I hate saying I all the time. I don’t want to make this about me. My posts are intended to talk to people out there who think they can’t in life. I know that there are millions of people out there who think it’s too late for them to do something like this. Then there are others that say bs I can.  I’m standing in the middle but I just fell off the fence and I’m going for it. I am also doing it because this is exactly what my older sister did. At the age of I believe 52 she completed her Bachelors. Nothing and no one stopped her. She is a domestic violence advocate as well as a published author. At times she struggled mentally, financially, and yes physically(medical issues) but she did it and nothing stopped her.

Over the past 2 weeks I also decided that I am not going for my teaching certification. I am going for Masters in Social Work. MSW. That took a lot for me to say. Whew… so nervous but freakin excited. There are so many reasons why I switched to this but the main reason is I love helping people figure out life. Plain and simple.

There is so much more to this but I have to get going so I’m going to stop here for now. But ya’ll out there reading this, have an amazing day.

Remember there is nothing that you can’t do in life. Nothing. You are the only one stopping you from achieving your goals and following your dreams.

Yes, it’s scary and hard at times but you can do it.

Get out of your comfort zone and change your life. Start now.
