Childhood Faves!

This was my favourite book when I was a child. I Reread it today and it still is.

The Velveteen Rabbit

By: Margery Williams Bianco

“Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”

Happy Today! Drive In Movie

I Went to a drive-in movie for the first time last night. What an experience! At first, I didn’t want to see Christopher Robin. But it ended up really speaking to me. The part that I can’t get out of my mind was when Winnie the Pooh asked Christopher Robin, “What day is it today?” and Christopher Robin responded… “It’s today.” And Pooh replied “my favorite day!” Continue reading “Happy Today!”

MMMM…Hot Chocolate

Psst hey, have you heard of mindful eating or intuitive eating and drinking? It’s all over the internet and in every magazine. We all tend to eat while doing many different things:

(Condonable)

  • Playing on our phones,
  • Watching t.v.

(Unjustifiable)

  • Driving
  • Walking
  • Talking.

Lately, I do it too. I shove food into my mouth and gulp drinks without tasting or truly enjoying the flavours or the textures. Mindful eating is about paying attention to the food or drink that we have chosen to partake in. You know, fully taking the time to enjoy every bite or sip. Like we all used to when we were kids.

Why Did I Start Blogging?

pexels-photo-844297

I haven’t been blogging much lately which has led me to question, why I started blogging in the first place. Hmmmmm.

Let’s begin…

  1. To prove to myself that I can write. Of course, it was scary at first because what isn’t?
  2. Simply, to write and develop my writing style.
  3. To re-experience memories that I had hidden even from myself.
  4. Oh, I also started blogging to laugh at myself and share some of my life experiences.
  5. The main reasons why I started blogging was because, I am that person right beside you at school, work, on the subway or even at a random store not needing to say much but quietly waiting to interject with some outlandish view often different from what everyone else’s.

Now…Why did you start blogging?

Radical Acceptance

 

pexels-photo-839464.jpeg

Have you heard of radical acceptance? I’ve been trying it out for a while now. What a great concept. Basically, it’s accepting the things that you have no control over without resistance. By resistance I mean, for example, going to the store and your favorite hash browns are not in stock for weeks at a time. You can:

a) Be angry, and throw yourself fitfully on the floor in the frozen food aisle like I may have done so once or twice very, very long ago. Continue reading “Radical Acceptance”

Alone on Wednesday

Alone on Wednesday

It’s a sunny Wednesday. I’m in the middle of the big city. Out for a day of exploring. While I look around and take everything in, literally everyone is busy looking at their phones. So what, I’m out here alone? I literally feel like I am out here alone…yet I’m around so many people. I can’t stand this!

Looking at their phones

What a waste of an outfit, a day, a smile. What happened to paying attention to what’s going on around you?

What happened to being in the… Oh sorry I have to take this!……….

If you never know, you’ll never be hurt.
If you never try, you’ll never fail.
If you never start, you’ll never be late.
If you never love, you’ll never lose.

Life could be that simple. It wouldn’t include getting hurt, but it wouldn’t include happiness either. You’ll never know what happiness is if you haven’t ever been sad. That’s why we look at things differently, we do things differently and make life complicated. This complication might hurt us, but it’s something that makes life worth living. We allow life to meddle. So we believe in things in a different way:

If you never know, you’ll never see.
If you never try, you’ll never win.
If you never start, you’ll never finish.
If you never love, you’ll never live.
