I had family night with my oldest niece. I took my grandma to an antique fair. I waited in anticipation for Grietjie to phone me and tell me she's engaged. I helped Charl in the search for her engagement ring.
I like to think that a lot of the small things are memorable. They should be. Don't you?
That blood is thicker than water. That my Mother is my Hero. That I am a good person and a good friend. That I will have a bright and happy future ahead of me, and I can make it happen. That I need people in my life, as much as I need to be alone. That I will be arranging my best friends' wedding stuff with her in the future.
Yeah, how do I choose just one thing?
Right now? I am totally sure of myself and who I am. I think....
Work stresses me out. People acting like idiots and making it my problem stresses me out. People pressuring me into crap I don't want to do or crap I don't like stresses me out. Not being able to do something about bad stuff that happens, that stresses me out. Not being able to help people I love with crisis situations or hurt in their lives, stresses me out. Being in a relationship stresses me out. Weddings, engagements and babies stress me out. Not being able to spend time with the people I love stresses me out. A lot of things stress me out, but I get over. I have to. Because that's just how it works.
You know all those things they show and talk about in the TV Show "Dirty Jobs"? Yeah, probably none of that. And I really, really can't find the stomach to even think of being a doctor or a nurse. I have a friend who's studying to be one, and it's not good. Not at all. I mean, for her, yes, but for me? Hell No!
People don't really argue with me about much. I'm a little overbearing sometimes. But if I have to think about it I'd have to say I argued with my Grandmother about the car. But I wouldn't call it 'furiously'. It just got heated every now and then.
That you need to tell people you love them before it's too late and that you have to appreciate people more, and not things. We tend to forget this simple fact too often. People are selfish and we think of ourselves too much. Urgh.
I lose interest and I gain interest. In all kinds of different things. But it's small, and definitely not making any waves in my life. I love so many things, and I still do. I actually wish my interest would grow and make more things possible for me.
I can't think of quick decisions I made that changed my life so much that it made a gigantic impact. Small things yes, that made small impacts and changes, changed some things in my life, stuff like that. But not gigantic life changing stuff. I usually think things through and make sure I have my ducks in a row. Like me buying a car, it took me something like 2 years to think through and consider everything. The chances of it happening just got better because I got a better job and so forth.
Arts & Crafts and Pencil Sketches. I try and teach kids sometimes, just working on my patience but I'm getting there. I love teaching things I know about and love, otherwise I'll just confuse someone.
I keep myself busy with arts and crafts, pencil sketches, reading, exploring. I don't really care about isolation and loneliness because I believe it's all a choice. Just like there's a difference between alone and lonely. What do you think, and how do you handle it?
I sometimes have friends who say that they miss me... but they don't even make an effort to try and talk to me or find out how I'm doing. It confuses me, a lot. But sometimes I do understand, it happens to me too. Life gets busy and things happen. Time tends to run away with me and I don't spend as much time with people that I'd like to. But, come on, at least try. Communication is so much easier in this day and age...
My blog is full of quotes, so I don't know how to choose just one. But I'm sure one of my faves is "Life Goes On". Because it does. And it gets better. Life doesn't wait around for anybody. And "Life is Beautiful if you open your eyes". It's scary how many people forget.

I don't know how fancy your cars are but for me this is amazing! And I'm doing it all on my own! (Super proud of myself!) Of course the Grandmother and a few other people have put up a million and one barriers for me regarding this car, because they think it's too expensive and I won't be able to afford it. She also mentioned crap like buying a house, getting married and making babies, and not being able to afford it. But I don't care!! I definitely don't have wedding or baby fever so I'm okay thankyouverymuch.
I recall times when I should have said something when someone is gossiping, bad-mouthing, talking about things they know nothing about, saying really horrible things or doing something they shouldn't be doing. Usually I open my mouth and raise my opinion, I'm straight-forward like that, but there are times that I keep my mouth shut. Times that I predict the outcome to be disastrous if I do, but I should stop doing that. Whatever the outcome... what's wrong is wrong and what's right is right. Don't you think?
I think the worst and actually almost the only thing I can think of are a lot of ways where I stop myself from doing things I should, need or want to be doing. For various reasons of course, mostly unnecessary. I hate it, but it happens often. I over-analyze things too. I think a lot of us do that....
