“The thing I do most often when I am supposed to be doing something else is…”
I have several things that I do when I am supposed to be doing something else. First off is I put music on and just enjoy. Music is everything so really I also multitask with music playing like specifically I have to have head buds in when I am writing or it never gets anywhere. I also will put on a movie to have some back ground noise going and magically it’s like I have never seen this show before and I sit and re watch the whole thing. I can usually put on tv shows and it doesn’t affect me but when I put on a show that I have never watched it always seems to create a monster and I will watch a whole season without moving. That’s how I got into the show the magicians and was obsessed with getting the book. I also have a bad habit of getting on pinterest and just looking through everything that I shouldn’t be. I can’t tell you how many boards I have, it is getting out of hand. I also get on Amazon and “window shop”. I make wish lists for everything and every occasion. I have a 4th of July wish list, I have a movies and books wish list, I even have a wish list for each of the pets I have. The amazon thing really is when I want to avoid everything and I could go for days just making new wish lists.
“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”
This hits home with me. Forgiveness is hard because you give it even when there is still a wound. There is a person that I have forgiven and forgiven for all the wrong that they did to me and when I did them wrong and asked for forgiveness they refused to forgive me and said they would never be able to. This was the first time that it really opened my eyes that people can be cruel. This person said and did things that really hurt me and I poured forgiveness over them but when I hurt them the words couldn’t even pass their lips.
This person and I have limited contact now and they still act like I just hurt them yesterday. I have forgiven and moved on with my life. There are rare moments when it crosses my mind but I’m also not the one who pushed me out of their life, either. So, I think it is healthy to forgive otherwise it will eat you up and never leave you.
‘The thing that I would be most ashamed for someone to know about me it…’
This is actually pretty hard to answer. I can think of a couple but I don’t really want to talk about them so I will bring up the first one that popped up in my mind. When I was around 13 I used to climb to the roof of a friends house with some beers that we would sneak with out her dad knowing. I don’t like the idea of people knowing that I had beer when I was that young or that I would sneak them. Just feels like I should had been more responsible or been a better example. I did it though and I can’t change it now.
“Misery is almost always the result of thinking.”
I have never read anything truer. I can over think, rethink, and over rethink. My mind is a mess and tries to create a mess in my life. I can always get to myself thinking about something that I could had done better or something that I forgot to do. There are times where I think about something I could had said or something I could had done.
I get miserable thinking about what I could do or should had done instead of focusing on what is here in front of my, on what I can do now. It strips me of getting things done. It’s like a circle that you can’t stop once you let it get started.
“If I could change one thing in the world, it would be..”
I feel like I have already done a what I would change in the world but that’s OK if I did because there is always things that need to change and as a person I hope that I evolve as the world evolves.
I think that I would change the types of hearts people carry around and help them open them and stop putting so many shields up. I think that it is ok to hurt and have those feelings of joy and anger and sadness.
Realistically, I know that could never change because you know people don’t want to do that and that’s as far as it would get. I think that ideally taking care of animals and children would be my next focus area. I would want to put in a certain screening in for having to work with children or animals because it really does take special people to do that. You can’t have aggression with either and they both really do take a lot of patience. Kids are sent to schools with teachers that are only looking for what they think is an easy job and could really care less about each individual child. If they have a special need that is just too much time and energy to focus on one thing. Same goes for animals at shelters or where ever else there could be neglect. I just want every one to understand that these little guys take a lot of time and energy.
Animals and kids all have different personalities. You can’t know what has happened at their homes. You can’t know what kind of mental issues they have. You can’t know the abuse and neglect that they have gone through. I mean I don’t work in either of these professions but I this is what I feel.
“Find something you love to do and you’ll never work a day in your life.”
People are so miserable working jobs that they hate because they want the money right now instead of taking their time and learning more about what they want to do. Maybe they just don’t have the will power to go after what career they want.
Getting to do what you want day in and day out would make the days fly by because you would get so consumed with what you are doing and being proud of what you are doing.
“Tomorrow will be better because I learned…”
I think tomorrow will be better because I learned a different way to get things done. I heard that if you make things a priority then you get things done right then and you won’t be trying to squeeze time out of the day that you don’t have. So if you make it a priority then it gets done and then you move on to the next important thing that is now the priority. So far so good, I hope that I can keep it up because it really does work from what I have experienced.
“There is a light at the end of every tunnel…just pray it’s not a train!”
Honestly, life throws some crazy curve balls and it knocks everything off course. We can plan and plan and life has a way of always knocking things off course. There is a silver lining though, don’t ponder and stay stagnant with the issue that pops up. Find a way around the problem. There is no reason to stay and get angry or upset. It ruins the rest of the day and almost can guarantee to put everyone else that you are with in a bad mood too.
A time traveler offers to kidnap your child self so you can raise her? Do you do it?
I don’t think I would accept this offer because there are parenting styles that I have picked up from each parent and there are some that I create/started on my own. I think my biggest question is how does it alter future or current me since I am raised different. I for sure just think this is a bad idea all in all, for both parties.
