My Focus…Week 1

I now participate in a weekly blog challenge called “Nurture Thursday”. Last week the topic was called “Your Focus”

I decided to make a pledge of sorts and since then, every day I will be doing something that is going to take me somewhere and will record each day what I did that day.

Day 1: Started my exercise and diet to lower my cholesterol and I already feel fantastic! I have heard before that exercise can release endorphins…and I guess it’s true! It’ll be interesting to see tomorrow if I am hurting all over!

Day 2: I worked all day, and after that I got to go and see “Aladdin the Musical” So I didn’t have much time to do something…However, I say that. Yet, I haven’t been to the theatre in a few years and I was slightly anxious. I’m alright with movie cinemas, but they’re more roomy and they actually cold instead of warm. So I was anxious and you can leave a cinema anytime, theatre you can’t really manage to do that.

Day 3: We are voting today, I am really optimistic. A lot of Labor’s “stuff” just make sense. What’s more to do than vote for your Country? I also did my second lot of exercise. I have to do it every 3-4 days.

Day 4:...Well…Shit…There I said it. What upsets me the most is that it’s become more apparent that people voted for Liberals (Republicans for Americans) For either 1) They liked Shorten less? 2) They wanted to ‘own’ progressives. Either way, it’s completely immature. Need a packet of chips…But no! So I decided to sign off of social media for a few days. I went ahead in the afternoon and continued with my online studies. It’s for Health Administration. I think I’d make a good receptionist for a medical/dentist office.

Day 5: So I went and did another round of exercise (I’m supposed to do it 3-4 times a week). I’ve decided to increase the “reps” that I did every second time I do exercise. So I increased the amount this time. I did freak a little this morning, the cat was twitching a lot. I did not watch the last episode of GOT…today.

Day 6: I was called into work today, rather late. So I’m finding it hard to do anything today.

Day 7: After a hard night sleep, I got called into work all day. So while it’s annoying and it’s stopping me from doing stuff. There are still things I have looked into today. Self businesses, redbubble. Things I’ve been talking about forever. But finding out more about what is entailed. Like do I have to draw things, copyright. I actually have been at my mum’s the past two days, specifically because I thought I wasn’t working. So I could spend time with the family dog…and my mum…of course. But I’ve been working, so more money…Yay…But I’ve been trying not cry when I leave the house over guilt.

 

At the End of the Day – Nurt Thursday

Nurt Thurs – At the End of the Day

I was thinking about this a lot today and I’m honestly not really 100% sure what makes a successful day for myself at the moment.

At the moment writing a Blog post definitely makes me feel motivated and keeps me writing! If I don’t write at least part of a Blog in a day, I usually can’t write anything! That’s the honest truth!

At the end of the day, the most important thing is that I end the day happy. It doesn’t matter what I’m happy about if I can sleep happy in the knowledge of how lucky I am. I sleep well.

(Probably my favourite Musical of all time!)

7 Strange question that help you find your life purpose…

Scrawling through Facebook this morning and I see this article on my friends page and I go to read it thinking “Yeah, yeah another article telling us “What do you really love to do” and so on and so forth. I was genuinely surprised to read this article and I had so many “Wow” and Oprah lighting bulb moments reading and I just had to share this.

I’ve been so afraid to do things and I have felt like this is the year I start doing what I’ve been scared to do.

This article just almost spoke to me and made that lovely cold shiver down my spine happen. If you are feeling stuck or are at a cross roads about what you want to do, or what you think you should be doing, I highly, HIGHLY, suggest that you read this article.

7 Strange Questions That Help You Find your Life Purpose – Mark Manson

That Little Scar

The little scar on the bottom of my right foot,
A constant reminder on how I entered this world,
A scratch across my foot when I was not even a day old,
I suffocated on the way in too, a tiny little life already having to fight to be in this world.

That little scar on the bottom of my right foot,
A trusting little foot holding out to the doctor, with that big needle, much bigger than my little foot.
One little movement and that trust that I had in that doctor, all gone,
I am suppose to be there, I might have to fight the rest of my life, but here I am.

That little scar on the bottom of my right foot,
How can one deny that there not suppose to be,
I am supposed to be and I will fight to be here,
But why am I suppose to be here? Why and what for?

That little scar on the bottom of my right foot, a constant reminder that I AM supposed to be here.

Dear Me,

(So I wrote this is when I had an overwhelming feeling of anger towards my ex and I was never going to share it, but I think that a lot of people would understand where I am coming from and I had this thought that when I do meet the ‘right one’ for me. All this anger that I feel I am going to feel so ashamed of because I let some…idiot…nearly ruin any chance I have of falling in love again).

Dear You,

It’s okay to feel angry, it is truly alright. Just make sure that you learn and you try understand that not everyone you meet, a much as it seems to suck, will be around in your life forever. Some of them do not realise the potential that is there, and that is okay too. They need to learn to make their own mistakes and one day they will understand what they have done and what you had. This doesn’t mean you need or should feel like you want them back in your life, as long as they learn and never do this to anyone else ever again.

Just please promise me this, do not let this break you, do not let this make you hard and bitter. There are so many out there that look too you to make this day a little more magical, a much more fun place to be in. Yes, he is a moron who just easily threw away an amazingly rare thing. This does not mean that finding that amazingly rare thing will not happen for you again. Believe it, you know it will exist again, I know that you feel it here in the deepest depths of me, I know you feel, don’t ever lose that.

Someone like you was never ever meant to end up alone. There is nothing wrong, even in this day and age, to want the one who has your back, the one who will still love you even in the darkest places of your heart, there is nothing wrong with wanting the one who makes your heart smile, the one that even during Winter, will keep you warm and safe, even when they can’t be there, the one who will warm our soul. Most importantly, there is nothing wrong with being single while you find this one, you do not have to date anybody you don’t want too (though we both know it’d much easier that way).

Take these moments day-by-day, hour-by-hour, if you have too. I know it hurts so much right now and you fought so hard just to have it all disappear like it was worth not a thing. I know that you are wishing with all of your heart he had left you alone earlier, or that you had just never met him at all. I know that he has torn, clawed and scratched at every single dream, word and feeling that ever happened.

You will get through this. You will meet someone who will just make your heart dance and your mind sing. All of this will be yours, I promise you. You just cannot let this make you bitter. Your heart is so full of life and love and it is just waiting to burst open with everything that you have to give. Please, do not let this make you bitter and make your heart turn into a well of cement.

Love Always,

Your Heart
