We must move forward, not backward; upward, not forward; and always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom!

As I write this I am having a pretty sad day, so I thought that I would write something that would cheer me up a lot and that is to write about things I have to look forward too this year. Whether that be they are GOING to happen or I just WANT them to happen. Sometimes I feel like having something to look forward too. even if it’s far in the future, I always find something to look forward to cheers me up. After all, time can sneak up really fast! So I have come up with a little list of what I have to look forward to this year:

  • Travelling to Melbourne and not just to see my brother for his birthday (since his birthday smack bang in the middle of Winter).
  • Take some serious looking into doing a “side business” even if it’s something tiny. See, I am incredibly bad at believing in myself.
  • Move in with my partner.
  • Getting a job with PERMANENT hours, no more casual work.
  • Do more writing…By that I don’t mean with my Blogging, I love to write Fiction stories, even if none of them get published. I have so many ideas in my head.
  • Going to Sydney at some point this year.
  • Instead of having a birthday party, looking into hosting a Winter Solstice party and what that might entail. They sound like fun!
  • This may not be *fun* but I want to start eating healthy and doing some sort of exercise and some exercise I’ll stick with. I’m not overweight BUT since I hurt my leg a couple of year ago I have gotten lazy.

Tell me that you love me

flowers

I think these people confuse me the most…I just find it weird. I’m going to “unfriend” you but make sure you can still see everything? So you still need approval? I’ve had a few people do this too me and one I didn’t know about because I didn’t know they had even unfriended me! That was awkward! Made it funny for me though,lol

I don’t “care”

There is something that really intrigues me and I would really love to hear your opinions on it or if you are one these people who do this, to please explain what this need this.

What is with this seemingly big NEED that some people have to write on news articles or ‘entertainment’ type articles about how they “don’t care” they have “real news to read” and is this article really “newsworthy”. What are they doing there then? Personally, when I see an article I’m not interested in I skip pass it. I actually asked someone this question because I find it really intriguing, that whole thought process. Of creating traffic for something you don’t care about, rather than creating traffic and focusing on the things you do. Then boasting about how you don’t care, like it’s some great feat and accomplishment that you just HAD to write that?

I am like 99% sure no one is making these people read these articles. So why are they even reading these articles for? Do they not have enough to care about? Do they have a lot of free time that they have the time to focus on things they don’t care about?

I have always said that the Kardashians are being kept in our public eye, not because of their fans, but because of their haters. They are making their numbers and money from their haters. For example, the amount of articles I have seen people comment and re-share articles about them is literally in the thousands…but…they “hate” them? Yet my brother and his friends seem to really like them, yet I rarely hear them talk about them. I only found that they like them last year, when my brother was over for a visit and there was a Kardashian marathon on the tv…We had to watch it all day -.-

For those who may not know what I mean by “traffic”. It means when you click on a article online, or you comment online, you are creating “traffic” that the website keeps tracks of to see, what people are interested in and what the public is talking about. They don’t care what you deem “newsworthy” or what “real news” is, or if you like the article or not. What they focus on is the numbers that each article receives. So by you “not caring” and clicking on a article you don’t “care” about, it creates interests and so that site will continue to talk about it.

Even take WordPress, how many of us have edited our Blogs and write about topics that interest people more than what we actually want to write about, based on the views, discussions and likes we have gotten for our posts.

Please discuss!

Make a Wish

My horoscopes said that I just need to “make a wish” this week. Instead of concentrating on what I want, I need to work on what I want to get what I need. I am actually into horoscopes, but the ones that they do weekly in the newspaper is not the ones I follow to the “T”. Mainly because those ones are just to general, they are not specific enough, for that you need a lot more detail.

However, I think making wishes helps to achieve what we want too and every Monday I make wishes for what I want to achieve for that particular week.

Share Your World … Week 9

Share Your World

Share Your World – 2016 Week 9

Have you done something you truly want to do today?

Kind of…I’m sort of charge of organising a girls weekend this weekend (By sort-of I mean, I’m organising it all, even though there are two other people in charge). So I am organising and booking in where were eating and everything. I have been wanting to have a girls night for a really long time…Except everyone’s been annoying me,lol.

What can you help the world with?

I think sometimes just lending an ear can really help someone’s day. Even at work we have a lot of age range and backgrounds who have so many different stories to tell us.

If life was ‘just a bowl of cherries’… which fruit other than a cherry would you be..?

Oh I love these questions, I think that I would honestly be a granny smith apple (they’re the green apples). I think I would be a granny smith apple because granny apples taste very sour to people who don’t like them, even though they’re just being who they were born to be. People who like granny smith apples REALLY love them, while they’re being who they were born to be.

Quotes List: At least three of your favorite quotes?

  • “To thine ownself be true” William Shakespeare…Probably my favourite of all time!
  • “Never make fun of what someone is passionate about … It might be the only thing that gets them up on the morning” … I feel like I heard someone else it, but I can’t find who said…Maybe it was just me.
  • We’re all stories in the end…Just make it a good one, hey?” My favourite Doctor =D

Share Your World … Week 5

Share Your World

http://ceenphotography.com/2016/02/01/share-your-world-2016-week-5/

If you had a shelf for your three most special possessions (not including photos, electronic devices and things stored on them, people or animals), what would you put on it?

  1. Would have to be my special figurines. I have a couple from the Jim Shore.
  2. There are couple of pieces of jewellery that I have either gotten for people (in memoriam) or been given that I treasure.
  3.  I have a few favourite books as well that I’ve had for years. Whenever I “re-find” them in a box I am just so happy.

If you had a box labelled ‘happiness’, what would you put in it?

Oh my goodness, what a great question! If it’s just a box, I would have so many photos in there. Possibly some favourite pieces of jewellery. Bookmarks and some of my favourite pens, maybe a wig or two,lol.

What do you want more of in your life?

I want a more steady job with more of a steady income. It’s getting really frustrating not knowing how many shifts I’m getting coming in and so I don’t always know how much money I’m getting coming in. If I could have that, I swear everything in my life would be pretty much perfect.

Daily Life List: What do you do on an average day? Make a list of your usual activities you do each day.

  • Take all my medication (at the moment it’s all just natural stuff, nothing serious).
  • Depending where I am a cuddle with either my puppy or my partners cat (he’s a weird cat, he really loves to cuddle,lol).
  • Probably some Blogging of course.
  • I usually will play some kind of computer game, even if it’s only for a little while.
  • I will usually watch either Petes Phone (Ustream) or Djuma Cam (Ustream). Especially on the days that I miss the safari live drives. They are pretty much now a great form of meditation for me. I’ll just have one of them on in the background.

Welcome and Wanted

One of the hardest things about being in a relationship (especially a new one) is trying to ‘decipher’ and decode your partners quirks and habits. It’s probably one of the biggest messages that I can say when you are single. You NEED to find out what makes you happy, what behaviour are you willing to put up with and you NEED to stick with it.

One of the hardest lessons that I’ve learnt throughout every single relationship, and in all honesty I mean friendships and family. The hardest thing in any relationship is to feel wanted. I can honestly say that every partner that I’ve had, they never wanted to be around me. They always seemed to prefer the company of their friends, even if they were bad-mouthing those friends (which should also be a clue). Even with my “friends” I have had friends who have dumped me for other people…Hence why “friends” are in quotation marks. I no longer consider them friends.

When you are single, you think there’s this whole world that you are missing out on. I was always good at being single personally. You have to figure you out, I cannot stress this one enough. My current relationship is tough for me because I have so many insecurities, I’ve had to deal with a lot on my own in the past. I am not used for asking for help, I am more used to being upset and crying it out on my own.

Before you get into a relationship do things on your own. Reconnect with yourself. The major reason I am doing alright now is because I know that I’m fine, my current partner is not my other ex-partners, he is a whole other human being and has never given me a reason to doubt him.

30 Days of Gratitude…Self Gratitude

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…

Self Gratitude 

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.

Retail Therapy

The last couple of months I have hit the retail therapy HARD CORE! I mean generally there is always some kind of retail therapy for me after a breakup, but I have been getting rid of so many old clothes and getting new gorgeous ones. It is a necessary function that needs to be performed after every single break up…No matter how nice or nasty!

It is interesting though what people decide to buy after a break up. When I was younger I used to buy plush toys and I still actually have them all and I have no bad feelings towards any of them. As I’ve gotten older though I buy clothes more now and I buy things that I’ve been wanting for a while but never got around too.

What do you buy after a breakup? What makes you feel better? Is it buying bad food (sometimes I do that…Nice juicy bad burger~.^) is it watching “bad” movies? Is it just being around family and friends?.
