For a while I have been wanting … I was going to write trying there but I'd be lying to you and myself to say that … wanting to write a "hit" post! A viral post! The winning piece… and then I sit down to write… start a post … I want it to be so brilliant that the pressure kills me!! So today I just told myself write! Write anything ! It shouldn't be about a perfection! Because I couldn't decide what would be brilliant to write about I thought I should just start typing … and so here I am… nothing to write about. Just a girl, in the world, who wants to write, to make people smile, to make all feel at home and welcome!
So even if there is no comments, no readers I am just happy I decided to come back today to write. Clear my head for a few!
For all the great bloggers out there: why do you write? What drives you to write? Where does your inspiration come from!?
Hello there word pressers !
I'm writing this evening because I need to. Writing today because my anxiety is beating me. After a long day and after finally getting my 8 month baby and 5 year old to sleep I sat down to catch up on my social media, instagram and Facebook feeds… and in my notifications is a sweet message from a friend met up with today who tagged me in some photos she took from an awesome day spent together! With a big smile I click on the album with some anxiety as I know she took some photos of me and photos give me anxiety… well just as I thought… there it was…. exactly the photo I had feared … my heart dropped … I hated most photos of myself but this one… well … brought me to tears. Not in a good way. This one was the worst I have ever seen… at least that's the way I felt at that moment even though there are many I probably felt worse about … I never want to feel like this again. The knots in my stomach, the embarrassment… I am writing these words so I can come back and read them and be reminded of how I feel and how I never want to feel again😓
It took me a while but seriously seriously SCANDAL is the bomb dot com!
My reasons as if I even need to give them to you because the title speaks for itself! I mean who doesn’t like a good scandal to read about… don’t even say you don’t care for that because I know that’s just lies😂
Olivia Pope – The fixer – whattttt!? Yep I know. So BADASS!
The woman is basically the law! She can be and do everything. We all secretly are fascinated with a superhuman who just is capable of moving mountains. If you want it done… call in Olivia Pope … besides as a woman… hell ya ! I wanna see woman being portrayed as this superhuman geniouses becauses hell… WE ALL ARE!
I found this on Pinterest last year July and said to myself
This is my reason! This is my ‘why’
Losing weight has been a long challenging journey for me. And the there are many slopes, rocks and road blocks.
But the point is that I am ready. NOW. FINALLY. I am ready to make a very serious change in my life. I want to teach my daughter that anything is possible😃 … My ultimate reason.
WHAT IS YOUR REASON?
Okay so here I am 3:33 am Eastern Canada time starting this post. So this wasn’t called coffee talk because I’m having a coffee and I need to chat… This is: I had a coffee early evening and now I can’t fucking sleep😂😳.
I haven’t written here since …. uhhhhh… I don’t know when… But it seems I am always inspired when it’s time to sleep. Convenient. I know 😉
I’ve been pintresting for the last hour and after pinning almost every 10 week workout plan to a beautiful new “self” and every fitspiration photo of a lady with a tight ass and perfect abs with captions such as “strong is the new sexy”, and “small changes = big results” , “keep going” , “in a month from now you will be wondering why you didn’t start today” blah blah blah …. Let’s just say I was ready to move on…
So now that I’ve fed that part of my brain I thought why not try and write …
And now I may try and sleep…
Wish me luck😕
Good night y’all
This post should of been written yesterday because the passion has dissipated slightly however none the less I’m going to try to transcribe as it were yesterday 😀
Not sure where the lot of you are from and if you have “Chapters” where you are but Chapters/Indigo (indigo is the canadian chain bought by Chapters -yes, I’m canadian ayeeee) well chapters is a big box book store that is just so much more. I don’t know about you but there is something about walking in to Chapters that’s just so invigorating. I walk in and ohhhhhh the possibilities …. I’m inspired to read, learn, do…. I could stay there all day.
Not to mention the engeries (yes i dont think that is a real word but whatever it’s my blog and this is what I do -form words to say what I wanna say. Haha) … the energies from those around you with the same thirsts driven by INSPIRATION. Everyone is so pleasant from employees to customers it’s just a real natural high. An adrenaline.
I had one thing in mind going in : “FITBIT” … A purchased I have long mauled over.
So I walk in the tall heavy wood library doors and my initial reason for the visit was thrown off path. Everything so perfectly and gracefully displayed. From unnecessary beautifully crafted knick knacks – leading you to believe that you need them, to journals and paper paraphanillia – urging you to get organized and journal your life to the last detail, yoga essentials – charging you to want to enter the serene world and the books … Ohhhh the books… Leading you in to all different worlds and amazing possibilities… That’s the real wonderment of Chapters to me.
It takes you anywhere you want to go.
That was my high for the day. I can’t wait until my little princess can read and we can walk in together and enter in to the magic land of our dreams.
What store brings you to your magic place?
These are great questions. Ha! I wish I exactly knew the answers to those. I started this blog a while back and well… as you can see I have not got far.
Today on freshly pressed, I found this post “You Never Can Tell…Part 2” , which I really enjoyed, which also linked me to this Zero to Hero Challenge 🙂
Side Note: Thanks Ana 🙂
So I am writing this as part of the Day 1 Challenge. Who I am and Why I am here.
Click here for my “about me” page which should be updated a little but close enough for now 🙂
I wanted to write this blog as a public personal journal. I think writing connects us to our brains and helps to work out a lot in our heads. I am writing for therapy really, because Lord knows and you will find, I definitely need it. Ha! Posting public seems much more interesting. Getting feedback and others thoughts on the inner workings of my brain and thoughts is far more interesting and real.
I enjoy interacting and exchanging positive energy with all different walks of life (yes it’s true). I am interested in reading about others life experiences. From dry sarcastic rants & daily annoyances, to beautiful photography, cooking, parental advice and of course lets not forget the do it yourselfers – Some very clever people out there, I love to read peoples thoughts and opinions. A blog where I can read and have that “ahh haaa” moment is my absolute favourite.
Along my journey here I can connect with you all and perhaps bring you an “ahh haa” moment or two…
I want my blog to be about my daily life, my opinions, my poetry, my art, products I love, products I hate, books I love, books I hate etc… You get the picture.
Looking forward to connecting with you all 🙂
