This weeks quote is by Audrey Hepburn. Read the quote and I will leave my thoughts below it.
When I saw this quote I knew I had to use it because it is an amazing quote. I agree with this quote 100%. This is something that I have struggled with throughout my life. I have recently decided to try and do this in my life because we never know when our last day is and I don’t want to die being miserable with my life.
What are your thoughts on this quote?
This week’s quote is a day late because I had a book review that went live yesterday and I didn’t want this post to get missed.
I have been thinking a lot about dating and things like that lately. I am sure it is just because everyone in my life is in a relationship and I am lonely. As I have thought about dating and meeting people I have to wonder where in this day and age do you go to meet people? I am going to list a few places I can think of and explain why meeting people there isn’t for me.
- Bars/Clubs-First I don’t usually drink and when ever I have met people there they are always big drinkers or just looking for random hookups.
- Church-I don’t go to church now so why I am I going to go and meet someone there. I guess I just don’t want to have to pretend to be someone I am not just to please someone else. Not to mention if I did that the relationship would never work.
- Online-I have done this and lets just say I will never do this again. There are crazy people out there and I don’t have the patience to weed through the weirdo’s in the hope that I find the one person for me.
- Friends-Well this might be okay if I had tons of friends but since my friend list is super short this just doesn’t work for me.
Those are the main ways I can see meeting people and none of them are right for me at least now. I had someone I worked with once tell me that in order to date you have to be open to the idea and at least looking for someone. I think my biggest problem is I am set against dating and meeting people that even if I was presented with the chance to date I would still say no.
I am for the first time in my life okay being single and I can finally say that I am okay in my skin. I used to say that I was okay being single but the truth was that I really wasn’t. Now that I have found myself I am okay being alone because I no longer need other people to make me happy.
What other ways can you meet people? How do you feel about dating?
I am so thrilled that my blog could be fixed. I am also super glad that I went through Host Gator because they fixed my blog and now it is updating in blog readers so I have my followers back and people can now see my posts. If you are moving to wordpress and going to buy hosting I say go through Host Gator because they are awesome!
This week for the Writers Workshop I am going to write about 1.) The simple things..
It is the simple things in life that make me happy:
Going home and chasing my girls around the house
Or listening to Sylvia “bark” like she is a dog
Hanging out with Misti just talking and laughing
Designing blogs for people
Laughing at the crazy things that people will say or do
Being around my grandma who can always make me laugh
Reading good books
With out all the simple things that make me happy life would be depressing!
I was going to write something for the writers work shop this week but non of the prompts really jumped out at me so I went to NaBloPoMo and they have prompts you can use to write about so I am going to pick on of them and write about that. The one that I chose is: What do you want your life to be like in five years?
Lets see in five years from today I will 30 about to turn 31. This is hard because I have a hard time lately knowing what I want my life to be like right now. I guess in 5 years I would like to be at a job that pays my bills and maybe even allows me to move out of my grandparents house. I also want to have the MS be stable. It would be so great for people not to know that I am sick unless I tell them that I am sick. I am lucky right now because unless I tell you that I am sick you can’t tell I am. It is nice for people not to know I am sick. If people know they tend to treat me differently than before they knew that I was sick. I hate when people are jerks to me until they find out I am sick then they try and be my best friend. I also don’t care if I am with someone or not. As long as I am happy where I am at the rest of it doesn’t really matter. I just want to be happy with what is going on and where I am at is all.
Well that is what I hope my life will be like in 5 years. I hope everyone has a great Thursday!
