What Made You Smile Today?

I found myself smiling today, but that’s nothing new,

For it happens every time, when I stop to think about you 💗


These additional things brought a smile to my heart, this Saturday:

  1. Big discount savings @ Walgreens!
  2. Fresh McDonalds fries
  3. Large Sweet Tea
  4. Bon Jovi’s It’s My Life
  5. Supporting a small business owner (who happens to be my friend).
  6. My hopeful intentions
  7. Progress
  8. Chocolate
  9. Message from my Dad
  10. Email from a special person
  11. It’s nearly the end of January, and our winter snow accumulation has been less than a foot total.
  12. Me allowing myself to construct a new routine here at home, So that more things get done, although it didn’t get much accomplished around my house.

Do You Want to Live Forever or Live a Lifetime in a Few Years

Do you want to live forever?

I would never choose to live forever, in this physical world.

Why? Why would I deliberately choose to hurt loved ones? Why would I allow that pain to show it’s face, if I have the choice?

Let’s compartmentalize this thought, shall we?

  • Forever means overpopulation!
    Ummm… She, who is impatient, claustrophobic, highly sensitive, and Introverted… No thanks!
  • Pollution and Air Quality! Have you ever been to places like Korea, China, or Japan? There’s no way I’d want this planet in such devastating decay. Nor would I ever want my children to live in such a terrible place.
  • Science isn’t meant to be altered, for the sake of selfish intentions. I know the world of DNA cloning and robotics, AI’S, and advanced methods are in infant stages. I’m not sure that’s safe.. If that’s what humans should be doing.. If it’s for the good of all society. There’s no way, I’d challenge the natural process of life by living forever.
  • Additionally, if I lived forever, how much love would I receive from others? There’s an ignorance within our species that allows the elements needed for fruitful results, to be buried, until it’s fruitless tears at a funeral or wake.
  • Finally, the idea of living forever implies quantity. More what… Would productivity happen? Would anything happen? Or would we all sit back and say, ” Ah well, I’ll get around to it.” And ” Well, there’s always tomorrow.” The state of being would consist of poor quality.

What could you do differently?

How easy could it be for me to slip into a horrible mental place with this question!

I’m going to try my best to NOT do that… Let’s get to it.

I could be more structured with chores, taking my anxiety medicine, and housework. This will alleviate tons of my stress.

I could come up with a visual schedule, so all three of us keeps on tasks. Additionally, this will help us to productive instead of frustrated.

I could mature some and give him space. Maturity is necessary. It’s apart of healthy relationships. If I’m trying to be in one, I need to be loving and mature enough to give the is space/time needed. That’s a struggle for me; because, I have abandonment issues.

I could create a meal plan. Accepting inputting from my daughters would allow them to feel apart of the process. This may create a less sense of power struggle.

I could set a goal, and work little tangible tasks, to earn my reward of a newer phone. This works with younger people. I don’t see why I couldn’t apply the same principle.

There’s many of things I could do differently; guess I’ll be getting to them.

Do you spend more time thinking about the future or the past? Why?

I spent too much time thinking about the past. According to my observations of human nature, I feel we’re more creative and yet, alive, in negative and difficult situations. It’s possibly the adrenaline the shoots through our veins, in the fight or flight mode. On the other hand, it’s possible all of this is utter nonsense because my breathing is way off course during such a time.

I don’t know; but, I find myself reminensing on many occasions that resulted in significant hurt. I’m working on this suffering, this year. No amount of guilt or shame is going to change what had happened.

Word

Reality comes in words.

What I say to myself.

The voices in my head.

What I say to others.

The constant chatter of the outside world.

They pull me in every direction.

Disguising ugliness under masks of smiles.

Preserving hurt for a moment, when it can do the most damage.

When the spear stops, right in my lifeline,

The ugly is no longer hidden.

The facade is done.

I face it… Because I have to.

It’s the truth.

Cheers to You

Do you understand the power you poses? To decide?!

For the majority of us, our homeland is one of freedoms.

From the moment we wake up, to the moment we fall asleep, we have opportunities of choices.

Men and women have died for you to feel this privilege. Blood shed, from slaves to soldiers, for us Americans to wake up each morning, and do what we desire.

Everyone deserves that.. But, it’s not everyone’s truth. It’s not everyone’s option

In the coming year, let’s make a change. Let’s do something differently.

Let’s focus on ourselves and be better! Let’s give, laugh, help, uplift, and express gratitude.

I don’t know about you.. But, I hate seeing all this negativity in the world.

So cheers to you! You’re beautifully crafted, with specific gifts and talents only you can give this world. Only your presence makes sense of the worlds in which you are apart.

I love you!

Pre-Planning 2023

I was scrolling through my notifications; and, I came across Dr. Andrea Dinardo’s One Word Vision for 2023. It was lovely to see the same wavelength I’ve been riding, lately. You can read it here.

I’ve decided my word for 2023 is HOPE.

I am keeping it in the forefront of my relationship, financial, health, personal, educational, parental, friendship, and creative goals.

Last night, I created something, for the first time: a vision board.

You can take a look here:

These are 17 of my goals. Some are health related; while, others are financial. Some are hobbies; but, others are more a necessity. No matter the reason, they will guide me on my path of intentional living. They’re a snapshot of foreshadowing in my story.

I want to end by saying, I am proud of myself for deciding to live on purpose. I’m looking forward to being in 2023. I’m looking for to what I plan to accomplish, as well as, what unexpectedly falls in my lap.

Thank you for joining me through this year of blogging! I hope you will continue to be awesome and remember you are loved.

Love & Light,

Nova
