A little reference nugget for all you Grey’s Anatomy fans:
I’ve been feeling dark and twisty lately, and have been a total grump.
Here’s the thing, though.
It’s okay to feel emotions, negative or positive.
Sometimes I need a little dark and twisty in order to appreciate the moments of sunshine and butterflies.
Why is it that when we are children, we are taught that we can be whatever we want to be, that the world is our oyster, that the only limits to what we can do is our imagination?
Why is it that as we get older, we are taught to do something practical, you can’t live on dreams, and that following our passions comes only after chasing the cash?
Sometimes it is a matter of luck, sometimes of circumstance, sometimes of motivation. But what if, despite it all, the possibilities are endless, the future is in our hands, and we have the ability to shape it?
Think of JK Rowling, Dolly Parton, Oprah Winfrey, Steve Jobs and Jack Ma; humble beginnings to household names.
What if we can make it, like they did?
I think I made a moment awkward.
I went to the chiropractor the other day and arrive slightly early, so I take a seat in reception.
A tall male chiropractor walks out, sees me, smiles and waves like he knows me; I look at him in confusion and quickly avert my eyes.
I should have just waved back. 🤦🏻♀️
Me last night: Sleep now, so when I wake up I get to eat brekkie.
Me eating brekkie: Can’t wait for lunch!
Me eating lunch: Yay, Thai for dinner tonight!
Me eating dinner: I feel like dessert.
Me eating dessert: I can’t wait for breakfast tomorrow.
Anyone else constantly thinking about food? My list of cravings keeps on growing. 😅
I like sunflowers. They’re bright and yellow. And happy.
They make me smile.
Find your sunflower. 🌻
Self explanatory really.
Buy that handbag/coat/shoe/jewellery; go to that fancy restaurant; book that vacation.
Otherwise, what is life? Save for what? Work for what? Wait til you’re old and retired for what?
Treat yourself on occasion !
Why does adulting feel like endless loads of laundry, and never knowing what to cook for dinner?
Not a reporter/ news journalist, but a journal writer journalist – finally joined the bandwagon!
It’s not something I write in religiously; I use it to jot down thoughts whenever I’m in the mood (or need an outlet).
Highly recommend if you want a little time capsule of yourself.
One thing I have found about being an introvert, is that everyone assumes you like to be by yourself.
But that’s not always true. I crave social interaction, and enjoy going out and spending quality time with friends.
I just need to recharge my batteries in between (yes, this is where the alone part does come into play).
Complex and contradictory – that’s me!
If you’re not happy with your life, make a change; if you do, the possibilities are endless. If you don’t, then you are living your future.
