So the Daily Posts challenge for today is to write about ‘bores’ us and I instantly knew, didn’t even have to think about it.
The constant posts on Facebook about Atheism…We get it! You’re an Atheist! It’s becoming nearly as annoying as those people who post hundreds of pictures of theirs kids on Facebook, but at least those pictures are original! I wish somebody whose posting about Atheism could at least post something original and not a picture of someone else saying a quote about Atheism. I’m not even religious and it’s becoming such a bore!
So for the last couple of weeks I have been sharing with you “Mandy Hales: A beautifully Uncertain 31 Day Challenge”
(See: Week One/1 and Week Two/2 here)
Here I post for you A Beautifully Uncertain 31 Day Challenge Week 3 … Now there are definitely harder Challenges to do this week BUT I would still recommend every single one of them. Since I’ve mentioned before as well, you don’t have to be Single to relate to these challenges. I’ve been finding these challenges useful in terms of just centring myself and helping to lift my self esteem.
As I mentioned last week, every week for the week of January I will be posting the link to Mandy Hales “”A Beautifully Uncertain 31-Day Challenge” (Found here at:http://thesinglewoman.net/).
We are now in Week Two of the challenge. I’m mainly reposting these ones in January because as I mentioned before, I believe that when you have goals and resolutions you need to start somewhere as soon as you have decided to do it and just do something each day. You need to make it part of your routine.
A Beautifully Uncertain 31-Day Challenge: Week Two
The only thing I would say about Day 8’s challenge is, if you are genuinely friends with your ex, don’t do that one. Otherwise, do it. Number 12, even when I am in a relationship, I still like to do that one. I actually learned about how amazing that one is while in a really bad relationship and it gave me a lot of my confidence back, enough to leave the bum! =P
https://lolsyslibrary.wordpress.com/2016/01/04/the-single-woman-blog/ Here’s the repost from last week.
When I was single I was use to follow a Blog called “The Single Woman (America)” … I used to get all her email notification, blog updates. Mandy Hale is a awesome inspiration for people who are struggling at being single. I actually do still follow her Blog as I think that some of the ideas she has can be used for every day life (and is good for single men too!).
For example her new “challenge” for the New Year is: “A Beautifully Uncertain 31-Day Challenge: Week One” Where every day you do something else, cleaning things out, finding 10 minutes one day for mediation. What I love about what she is doing, is it is really easy and you can get most of it day within the one day. I am doing this and I am not even Single!
I always feel like in the first month of the New Year, that’s when you have to start making your Resolutions/Goals happen, even if it’s something that takes 10-20 minutes of the day. Once you get into a routine you will find it harder and harder to get out of it! So for every Thursday of January I will post up the links to Mandy Hales 31 Day, Weekly Challenges. Do it, you wont be disappointed!
So last night I found this link and the group of puzzles really do honestly make your mind think! I know it’s probably really early in the morning for you all, but this will definetly get your mind thinking. Isn’t that what we all want on a Friday morning =D
DO NOT LOOK AT THE ANSWERS ON THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE!
I was nominated by the lovely Passion through Poetry to participate in the “Love in Ten Sentences” http://movingtowardsthelight.com/2015/03/13/love-in-ten-sentences/ The basis concept is is to write a ten line poem each containing four words and the letter “love”. Mine doesn’t rhyme (I actually wrote this a few days ago, but I was unsure whether to to post it or not) and in case you couldn’t guess it was a bad day for me =P
Love that’s been abused,
True torment, love heals
Pain lives, Love dies,
Love those around instead
Love carries swirling emotions
Heart carries love burden,
Love damages the heart,
Love cures the heart,
I love my heart,
I love it most.
The other thing I need to do is nominate 10 people. I am not one of those people or Bloggers that will force another person to do this, so please feel free to do or not to do,lol. In no particular order I nominate:
I am looking at the little cursor flashing away at my screen and I just keep blinking at the screen…This is definitely a blog challenge! What to write when you can’t think of anything to write and am having a hard time to be inspired! I’m about to go away for a couple of days to and I want give my readers something to read!
What do you, my readers and followers do, when you have a complete block?
Are there sites that you would recommend where people can participate in Blog challenges (mainly to inspire me of course!lol)
Here I am again, feeling frustrated because no matter how many times I have rejected a guy. Apparently it is MY responsibility to make them feel better again and for months to listen to how much they like me and how strong they’re feelings are for me. Even though I have made it clear that 1) I am NOT interested and 2) I have met someone.
If I did this, I would be call ‘crazy’, ‘pathetic’ and ‘stalkerish’. Yet, if I call them that and I don’t just sit there, take it and listen to something that I think is actually unhealthy and not helpful at all, I’m a bitch. Why? Why do we just have to put up with these guys harassing us? The emotional blackmail as well! I got so fed up with one guy today I literally broke and started to lose it. When I told this guy I was refusing to talk about any-more his feelings for me (I said no to him mid-December and he knows I’m dating someone else) because it was clearly not healthy and it was clearly not helpful for him. He tried to turn it back on me “Oh, I was just asking how you were doing”. I LOST it! I have not lost it like that in a really long time.
I literally FEAR rejecting guys now, I really do fear it. I have been humiliated on Facebook because of rejecting someone, which honestly made me even MORE glad that I chose to say no to that guy. Why anyone of them (a group of people decided to tag me in a picture that basically called me a “bitch” and posted it on their Facebook, they wouldn’t have dared to post it on my own wall) would think that that would make me want to date him more is beyond me. I have had guys go off on me while in their cars, that is scary as!
Guy listen to me…Man up! Not one single girl I know finds it sexy to constantly harass us after we have rejected you, in fact, it makes us want to stay away from you even more you and humiliating us does NOT work for us! Not one single girl I know has changed her mind after you posted on her wall any type of “friendzone” meme. It makes us even more glad that we don’t choose you, except we can’t say that because we’ll be called a bitch and then have our name dragged through the mud.
Before I was going to write individually on each of these last few days what I was grateful for, but it’s been such a crazy week that I have decided to leave these last few days and write what I’m most grateful in one big go…So here I go…
I have decided that I NEED to change my life. After months of going back and forth with my last ex, I realised I didn’t trust him any-more, especially not the way that I did once. I have to take my ownership in that. I don’t think that he was a bad person, but I needed to be more sensible in the choice that I was making. I needed to ask him hard questions before we started dating. Which started making me think about all of my past relationships and question why they have thought it was alright to treat me the way they did, when they don’t do it to anyone else? What made them look into the eyes of someone they were supposed to have loved and cared about and go “You’re going to get hurt by this and I don’t care”?
I have decided that I am too hard on myself. I trip myself up by worrying to much about how everyone else is feeling and doing and then I end up putting myself on the back burner. So then I don’t achieve all the things that I needed to, to get anywhere in this life. This includes family, friends, everything aspect of my life. Even if my family don’t think I cook, when I cook a lot (sorry I don’t put everything I make on Facebook *rolls eyes*) Doesn’t mean I have to stop cooking things I enjoy cooking.
I think that the hardest thing in this life is to be grateful for yourself. Its you who gets you through those tough days ultimately. Your mind, your body, your spirit. Its yourself who chooses to step up and take care of yourself.
