Todays Prompt: What would you title the chapters of your autobiography?
Hmmm…another good question Bloganuary. Funny enough, tuning 50 this month did make me think through my life and the experiences I have had. I didn’t think about titles but now is as good a time as any I suppose.
My first decade would definitely be called “My carefree years”. I don’t recall having too much anxiety during this time in my life and I pretty much excelled at everything I did (I think).
My second decade, my teen years, was a completely different story. “Becoming part I’ would probably be a good title. I had no idea who I was or what I really wanted out if life. Remember how my dream career in a previous post wasn’t even a specific one? I guess that tells you how lost and undecided I was.
My 20’s was “Becoming part II”. I still didn’t know what I wanted or where I wanted to be in this world but by the end of this decade I started to get a feel for what I enjoyed doing . I still wasn’t sure but I could see a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel.
My 30’s = “Evolution”. I began this decade in tears and very angry and remained that way for the first 2-3 years until I discovered the law of attraction and started behaving intentionally in some ways. I still was not there yet. I became a mom in this decade! A revelation! Suddenly it became absolutely necessary to know how I wanted to live the rest of my life and what experiences I wanted to give my son. Motherhood really galvanized me in to action.
My 40’s “Awakening”. Things started coming together. Isn’t amazing how that happens once you have clarity about you want. There have also been major losses in the later half of this decade but with these losses have come some gains. Some of those gains have been spiritual and some have been people. I have stepped out if my 40’s with clarity about my purpose and the talents that God has given me to fulfill this purpose. I have stepped into my 50’s stronger, happier within myself and feeling complete because now I know who I am. I am surrounded by amazing people who only want the best for me as well. There is still so much more to learn so who knows what the title of my 6th decade will be. I look forward to finding out!
Do you know what you would call your chapters? Let me know in the comments.
Today’s prompt: what are the pro’s and cons of procrastination
Well…as the queen of procrastination, I am certainly qualified to answer that question I think 🙈😂. Let’s start with the pros.
One of the main pros is that my house is never cleaner than when I find myself procrastinating about studying or writing a report in particular. While I am busy cleaning, my brain also gets a chance to think through some things especially if a report is due. Another pro is that I might find that if I leave some tasks for long enough, when I am eventually ready to start, the task is no longer required because circumstances have changed.
A key con is that I stress yourself out about a pending deadline but I continue to procrastinate anyway until the last second. It’s like I am paralysed and can only be released just before the deadline. I don‘t do my best work because everything is now done is a hurry. Procrastination is often just a form of self-sabotage. Well for me anyway. I do it when I am super nervous about how something will turn out.
Do you have any pros or cons to add? That’s it from me. Bye for now.
Today’s Prompt: What colour describes your personality and why?
Wow! What a question! The first colour that comes to mind is Orange. It’s my favourite colour (Although cerise is slowly starting to overtake it… ) so I guess it describes something about me.
I love that orange is so vibrant. It’s the colour of the sun and of some of the most beautiful sunsets. It is warm and joyful and creates feelings of positivity for me. It’s energetic and encourages creativity. It also stands out in a crowd. Orange is also the colour of flames and of, well, an orange, a very nutritious fruits. So how does this all fit with my personality?
I am often told by friends and colleagues that I am a very positive person. I get a lot of my energy from giving people the tools to thrive and just sharing a positive word when I think someone might need it. I definitely do believe that I am creative! I havee also always stood out in some way or another. Sometimes it was physically but most often, it was because I always seem to have a different point of view. I see different connections between the dots compared to most around me so it often seems as if I have gone off on a tangent…lol. I have become quite accustomed to the eyebrow raises and the looks of “what planet did she did just drop off?”! It used to bug me when I was younger, now I just say my piece and if you don’t agree, it’s ok. I am also pretty passionate about some things and of course that is where it’s quite easy to ignite a flame within…lol
I apologise as I know this is not my best post. I am definitely not giving off Orange vibes tonight. Probably more blue as I am dog tired after a long first day back at work for the week. Blue does go very well with orange though so I guess this is the other side of my personality. 😉 Oh and those that have had the misfortune of stepping on my toes or the toes of those I love too often or too hard, can attest to my icy side. It’s not my favourite side but helps me keep my boundaries intact.
Well, my bed and a cup of chamomile tea calls. That’s it from me for tonight. Thanks for stopping by. Bye for now.
