Share Your World, May 7, 2018

If you were given $22 million tax free dollars (any currency), what is the first thing you would do? (This is just a dream question, remember anything can happen in SYW.)

I would definitely pay off both of my parents mortgages AND look for a house for myself. Probably not one that has something ridiculous like 7 bedrooms, but a nice house. That’s near the sea, but not so close that it gets all that salt rot.

In what do you find the simplest of joys?

Coming home again…Whether it’s my Mums or my partners home. That moment when you get back and you can take off all your annoying “look nice” clothes, and get into your sweats. Curling up with a cup of tea.

What would be your ideal birthday present, and why?

In all honesty (and my answer is pretty lame) Just to know that the ones I care about are happy. I know that it seems lame, but we’ve all had so much going on. That’d it’d been really nice just to know that they are genuinely happy. My partner and I make jokes now about how we are the druggie family. I’m on medication for my anxiety, he’s on antibiotics for an infected ear and even the cat at the moment. The cat is on tablets to see if his fits are from a parasite. Which means we are all taking some kind of medication at the moment. Even my Mum has come down with something personal, and she’s on antibiotics as well.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

So it seems like everyone in my family has high cholesterol, so my Doctor has put me on some tablets to help bring it down. I’m glad that I got is checked though. Now I know that I can’t keep eating badly, it’s making me want to change my lifestyle. More home cooked meals, more walks. My Doctor said that I wasn’t really at risk at a heart attack, because my blood pressure is fine. Although it’s scary, I am glad that I got it checked, because now I know.

10:10

Miss Abigail – 10:10 Daily Challenges:

Miss Abigail has a section on things to do over 10 consecutive days and I have decided that I am going to take this challenge up! I’m hoping that once I’ve done it for a few days, I will keep doing.

The suggestions that Miss Abigail has came up with are listed below, but feel free to choose your own! Make it something that you actually want to do as well. I am going to record in my journals the times that I do whatever it is I choose to do. Some of the suggestions (by Miss Abigail) are listed below:

  • Meditate
  • Exercise (yoga, run, cycle, stretch etc)
  • Housework (tidy up, clean your bathroom, wipe down your surfaces, hoover one room, dust one area)
  • Declutter (by area, by category)
  • Self-care (skin care, hair care, mindfulness)
  • Write (write a novel, journal, bullet journal)
  • Read (non-fiction, fiction, school books, blogs etc)

It’s been a long week, so I am taking up this challenge!

This month’s 10:10 challenge I am taking up is Meditating. I have really been slacking on this and I really NEED to start doing it again.

What about yourselves? Is there a 10 challenge that you want to do?!

Februarys Goal…Tick or not too Tick?

  • Last month I got rid of a lot of clothes and accessories. This month I want to go through my technologies, for example, my computer and phone. To get rid of any old and useless files/photos etc.

This one has been great! I have saved SO much space on both my computer and my phone. I did not realise how many old files I had saved or just had had nothing to do with anything anymore. I also saved a few things on backup via an external terabyte. I think this is something I am going to start doing at least once a year now. I also went through my saved/bookmark pages and got rid of a few of them…A lot of the links were either broken, or were a completely different site altogether!

  • Look for a 4 space A4 photo frame in one.

I didn’t even get around to looking for one to be honest…I’ll have to leave that up to March!

  • Organise my photo albums.

I have been going through and have organised quite a lot, I didn’t realise how long it’d take. I’ve got so many doubles and photos that I don’t want in photo albums. It’s a really lengthy progress.

  • RENEW MY PASSPORT!!! I really need to get this one done!

I did it…It was so quick and easy, I don’t know why I waited for so long. It was expensive though. When I think about it though, its over at least a 10 year period, so it’s quiet cheap really. Well technically it’s about 13 years, because there’s an expiry date on your actual passport, but you still have a couple of years after that to renew it. It might be different for different countries. Even though my old passport expired in 2015, I can still use it until August, in Australia, this year for identification.

  • Compare Anxiety Apps:

I have used a few over the past month or so. So I’ve decided to write up about them in a Blog Post, later this month.

  • Write a post for my category “The Nerd Life”…I haven’t written one for a long time!

I did this one too =D It was one of my popular posts of the month as well. Created some interesting discussion. You can find it here at “It’s a hard-knock life”

Challenges

52. Did the Challenge change you?

I don’t think that the Challenge changed me, but it definitely did make me think more. I loved doing it because there were definitely times during the weeks that it made me think about things that made me happy. I needed that this year! A couple of times, as well, it got me too write something when I just wanted to lie on the couch. It got me up, thinking and writing and that I am VERY grateful for!

I am now currently in the process of trying to find a new Challenge for 2018.

 

Dictionary Day

Today is Dictionary Day! Maybe not the most exciting book that’s out there…

It may be one of those most important books out there though!

I do have a little challenge for you all though and you don’t have to post it on here, but you can if you want too. Every day or every week randomly choose a word from the Dictionary, write it down, write down it’s meaning and research it.

Do You Dare?

October Goals

October Goals

So after I managed to hit a couple of my September goals and some not as much as I would like to. It’s been an interesting month! I have decided that I am going to keep this up. I think writing goals down and sending it out into the public, make me feel more of a responsibility to meet these goals. It’s not like I can make a goal for myself and then if I don’t meet it, I’m the only one who knows about it.

  • I am going to get rid of some of my dresses, since I didn’t get around to it last time.
  • Getting rid of 4 summer tops. I bought all these summer tops for one place of work and one month later we got a uniform. A couple of years later and my new job doesn’t have a uniform. The tops I originally bought don’t fit anymore.
  • I currently don’t have any books to read. Last month I read one at my house and one at my partners house. I will continue this and then write a review about one of them.
  • Organise a Girls Night “In”.
  • Buy a little personal fan to take on a bus and see if that helps me travel on the busses here.

 

I think I can, I think I can, I know I can

13. A Challenge you’ve overcome

Henry Ford

Well I haven’t overcome my anxiety…yet…but I will!

*Long Post Incoming!*

Let me explain…

So I will reflect on a time when I felt like “Why does everybody hate me” I was getting cyber-bullied, when cyber-bullying wasn’t even a really a “thing” yet. I felt like it was never going to end and it made go so inside myself…metaphorically…I never felt like I was going to recover…Mainly because the bullying just didn’t seem to be ceasing.

The odd thing about the situation was I had never met the “ring leader” she had just decided that she didn’t like me. She didn’t want to be with my boyfriend, but constantly would use him. Even within 24 hours after we broke up she just HAD to tell me how he had tried to kiss her, she felt it was only right to be honest with me…I managed to keep my cool…And then found out a couple of days later he had actually tried to kiss everybody…and I do mean everybody…Guys included…It just got even worse after we broke up, with her. My ex and I are now fine, we’re actually really good friends.

It went on for about 6 months roughly. 6 months of stressing, every second day throwing up, every day getting some sort of message about how horrible of a human being I was, losing friends because I unfriended her (those are not real friends by the way). This was going on every day, or at least every other day for 6 months…It felt so much longer at the time.

After that 6 months I started to realise something, which then changed my life and the way I deal with girls and situations like this. How unhappy must she be? For all the talk about how much she loves the guys and by love I mean she constantly talked about how much she wanted to sleep with all of them, while they were dating her best friends. They literally stopped being friends with me because she wanted them too…

How unhappy must you be to attack someone else? No one who is happy, attacks others. You just don’t.

When you are truly happy you do go out of way to attack someone, especially someone you don’t even know…You just can’t be bothered…Why wreck a good life?  When I started to realise the power that I had, how sad her life must be…I started to come out of my shell again…What could she honestly do? The people who are always there for me, stayed with me. I was safe. When I started to realise these things, I could even start making jokes at her expense. Which sounds mean, but it was more I was having a conversation with someone on a forum and she just had to tell me how “immature” I was being. So I called her “MissButtSexputdrugsinouralcoholwantstohaveorgiesandhavesexwithmybestfriendsboyfriends…is calling moi immature?”. Pretty much every topic on that forum was her talking about one of those topic. She did not like that. Her response was toxic and she got banned from the forum. The irony being she has not only ended up with the guy that banned her, but they are still together and have a kid!

The result of this was giving me a life back. My Life.

I was able to laugh at her, I was able to laugh at the situation. It was ludicrous. I was finally able to stop it from affecting my life and I was actually able too start moving on from my ex as well. That was part of the problem, she kept bringing it up. I must have taken that selfie of myself to make jealous, except for the whole he couldn’t see it unless they were showing him, thanks to my privacy settings. Constantly being told how happy he is with his new girlfriend etc.

This is what it has helped me overcome in my future life…

It also taught me the biggest lessons in my life. About relationships in any form, family, romantic, friendships. What is appropriate, what isn’t, what I should and shouldn’t apologise for, about who is really there for you. How I don’t want any fake relationships of any kinds in my life. I have also been in a similar situation since and I learnt SO much and how to handle it, with pretty much no drama. That has my life has been pretty much drama free since then.

Liebster Award

I was tagged in this by the awesome Bookmark Chronicles (go check them out, seriously a thought provoking fun time!) who herself was nominated by the lovely The Melodramatic Confessions of Carla Louise. This award was originated by Curious Queendom (who is an amazing writer!) Please check out all these awesome ladies! ❤

The Rules:

  • Thank your nominator and tag them in your post(s).
  • Answer the 11 questions given to you.
  • Nominate however many blogs you want with less than 1000 followers.
  • Ask your nominees 11 questions and let them know on social media

  1. Who do you write for? Myself, like Bookmark Chronicles this is purely something I like to do something for enjoyment. In a way it’s like having a diary for me. Except the difference is (it’s public) but it’s more about stuff I’m learning about, things I’m interested in and to see who else in interested.
  2. Why do care about this particular audience? Well they seem like a swell bunch of people.
  3. Why did you decide to start your blog? I think I’ve mentioned before I actually started this as a school project. We had to investigative all different forms of social media.
  4. Who hurt you? While I’m not sure what being hurt as to do with a blog, other than perhaps if you’ve been hurt and you have a “single” blog maybe? One of the reasons though I’ve enjoyed Blogging is no one tells me what I Blog is “wrong”. Unlike my Facebook status where everyone tells me constantly “You shouldn’t post that”.
  5. Who is your biggest fan? I don’t know, I honestly don’t know.
  6. What is your favorite blog? Why is it awesome? I don’t like this question either,lol…I really like Blogs for different reasons. Sometimes I read certain Blogs when I’m down, when I need to be “fired up” and be inspired.
  7. Who inspires you and why? Oh wow that is an interesting question! I get inspired by different people for different reasons (Yes, I am one of THOSE people). There is music that inspires me, fictional characters and real life actors that inspire me. Books, Art…Everything inspires me!
  8. What makes you different? Can I just say that I LOVE what Bookmark Chronicles wrote for this answer, because I feel like that a lot as well. I guess the other thing about me though if that I’m incredibly laid-back, but I cannot stand any injustices. That seems to be a trait in the females in my family though.
  9. What makes you like everybody else? I hurt too…Oh that was lame,lol.
  10. What is your biggest dream? To feel satisfied and at the same time to contribute to daily life and other causes with no problem.
  11. Do you think you’ll ever accomplish your greatest dream? I really hope so!

I nominate:
