the real me   Leave a comment

so my sister wrote a comment that no one can know the real me, if I don’t put the real me out there for people to know so…… goes…..

this is the real me…………..

I want to be single
I want to think of no one but myself and live my life the way I want to live it.
I want to be passionate and find someone who is just as passionate as I am.

I want to travel and help others
I want to live my dreams instead of being stagnant and just dreaming them.

I want to exceed the limitations and not come to the end of my life and think “damn I wish I had done  this or that…..”

I just want to find the person I have buried inside and rejoice in the person I am instead of putting every one before me.

I am selfish I know and it isn’t realistic of me to think along those lines of what I really want in my life.
people depend on me.
People will be hurt and even devastated if I choose to put myself first.

So I don’t.
I live this life to make others happy and not myself……

and the real me screams for release inside of me………where no one but me can hear…….

this is a test……..this is only a test…….   Leave a comment

so a couple of weeks ago, while I was having a down and blue day I googled ‘things to do to make a person happy’ and there is an article on sitting down for twenty minutes with just yourself, a piece of paper and pen, in a quiet room where no one can interrupt you, and write down as many things as you can, in twenty minutes, that you dream about doing or want to do.

there should be complete silence in the room and your ideas can be completely far fetched or realistic.
it doesn’t matter…..just write something!

set a timer and when that twenty minutes are up, put the piece of paper away and don’t look at it again for at least a day and then take it out and go over it.
Look for things that are realistic and things you are capable of doing and then do them!

Sort of a bucket list…..

so…later today when I have the free time I am going to do this little test……
