Today is positive thinking day…So for one day I am going to try and seriously limit my negative thinking…Which should be fun since today I am getting my “Aunt Flo” come and visit…If you know what I mean! At the same time though it’ll be a good test for me as well.
Last week was definitely all over the place….I had about three major things happen in the space of about 24-48 hours…Not too me personally, but it has made me realise that I need to get all my health in check.
I decided to try and start the day off with some happy facts…
The FBI actually take animal cruelty seriously (which more law enforcement agencies should!) They track it along right side Arson, Homicide and Assault. I feel like more agencies should do this because it is a good sign of a psychopath.
Cats will bring you dead animals because they don’t think you can take care of yourself….The bastards!
Diego, a 100 year old Galapagos tortoise single handed fathered 800 tortoise to help his species to survive from extinction.
Humpback whales seem to 90% of the time appear to rescue other animals from killer whales.
This is for all my drawing/artist/creative type readers/Home Business followers…At the moment I have two casual jobs and while I enjoy both of them I am just not making enough money. I’m making enough to “survive” and luckily my partner and my mum charge me rent/bills on a percentage of what I make, rather than a set amount.
As I mentioned before I really do enjoy where I’m working at both places, I am really lucky that all my co-workers are lovely people and even with that one expected customer that’s always causing trouble. The work is good too, not to difficult that I just can’t do it, but keeps me busy and my mind off other things. Some weeks though I just don’t get the shifts, which when you’re a casual means, you get paid…well…nothing.
So this is where all my drawing/artist/creative type readers/Home Business followers come into play. I want to do something from home where I can make money as well. I love doing little crafty things and I would love to make a little business of bits and bobs. However, I have no idea where to start. So I was hoping that someone could give me ideas of any web pages or any sites that are good for people who want to get started, what sites are good to sell on, any legal information I may need. I was thinking of making things like:
Themed candles as well as just random scented
Handmade cards for all occasions
I am writing a couple of stories and am even writing what I call “script ideas” for a tv show for a role playing game that I used to play and I would love to be able to draw. I am a very visual person, but I am honestly also too lazy to learn how to draw properly. I can start and try, but I’d probably never get to the point where I could sell the art. The writing is mainly for myself and I’m not sure that I have to confidence to try and sell the ideas to someone either…It makes me feel kind of sad too at the same time as well. Who doesn’t want to be the next J.K. Rowling?
Honestly this one really confused me, just how it’s worded…Damn that’s Dyslexia! So, let’s see how I go.
At the end of last week I felt so tired and fed up and “what’s the point” and I have to admit that a dark thought passed through my mind. For a brief second, but it seemed so childish because I started to think about how lucky I am. I have this amazing partner who has been so supportive these last few months. Even my Mum has kind of backed off of me, which by that I mean, she’s backed off with a lot of stuff. Letting me go at my own pace. You know how parents can “bug you”, in their parent way. It’s not mean or nasty, it’s just “bugging”.
So this week I am grateful for a lot because I couldn’t get through this without them. I am pretty much fighting my own mind right now and they are helping me to keep myself distracted. Also though, it’s making me looking at my life just on a whole. Looking at my lifestyle and just how slack I’ve become in taking care of myself. I’ve started eating better now, because it makes me feel better. I’m becoming more active and doing more things and just doing things that make me happy.
I feel more positive, because even though I am going to be starting from the beginning. I am doing something, rather than giving up. I do NOT want this to become the “norm” for me. That’s why I believe I will be alright.
This year has been such a great year for myself, mentally, things would have crushed me a year barely bother me any-more. Although I do have days where I get down, as we all do, I feel that I know have the tools to help myself get through those days…As well as having the “right” people in my life, instead of the ones that are just…there…You know what I mean?
It was a bit of an accident that I happened to stumble upon this site. I put “Think, Act” into the Google search and I found this site. It’s not anything to do in relation with the above quote, however, it is a site and is about using the Internet to your advantage…You might find it interesting to give it a bit of a look, it’s a “digital impact Blog”.
I have been really struggling of something to write for today’s session of “Magic Monday”. Mainly because my brother was attacked and mugged last night. It’s kind of weird, I can be really easily distracted as my “norm” but today my mind has been going a million miles an hour and so I’m finding it hard to concentrate on one thing. My baby brother lives interstate so there is this overwhelming feeling of complete helplessness as well.
I might be able to come up with something later, but for now I’ll just leave you with this, the beat is helping me =D
So no more talking about ex’s…Except in terms of my “Single in a small city” page, even though, it will be at a minimum and only when it’s NEEDED!
I think the best piece of advice that I could give anyone is to believe in yourself the most. Everyone is going to give you those cliché type pieces of posts, but only you know what you truly need. I can’t tell you how many people would tell me that I was moving far to slowly with my new partner. I didn’t just break up with my ex, but I also was in a new job at a high pressure time. So I didn’t always want to go out.
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
