Wisdomist Wednesday : Inhale – Exhale

 

I hope you lovers are having a snazzy week!!

I have good news to share, I’m starting to feel more and more like myself again. Not like this … or this… orr this; I’ll be honest, one day at a time. I still have random moments, when it’s not cool and I want to ignore the world, curl up in a ball and eat cookies like it’s an Olympic sport. But one of two things have happened; I’ve either learned how to deal with how I’m feeling … or I no longer give a shit about how I’m feeling … ironically, I’m okay with either.

I haven’t done anything to help the situation, I haven’t spoken to anyone … nor found a solution.. I’ve just come to a realization; I actually KNOW what’s been bothering me now. It’s not particularly something I want to talk about …sometimes it’s easier to laugh off the bull shit ( sorry for all the cursing today ..).

I’m ready to be all smiley, again. I’m ready to laugh like I used to. The world can either join in or seriously eff off.. I no longer care.  I’ve changed, yes I know it. Yes, it kind of sucks, but life will do that to you.It will shape you, whether it’s good or bad. It is, what it is.

Ironically, for the longest time, my best friend has been trying to teach me this lesson .. that I should stop caring what the world says or thinks and just make myself happy; bluntly say how I feel, act for myself and not for acceptance. It’s not an easy lesson, I’m a sucker for seeing people smile, at whatever cost it may be.

And soooo my lovebugs … today we shall ;

are those supposed to be lungs? lol

Wisdomist Wednesday : My 7 Year Old Self

6b1118db905df8f9f0cbf337a9191ad2

 

What would you do if you were to meet your 7 year old self?

Would you warn them of anything?

Would you tell them to take advantage and savor anything that much more?

It’s funny to think, at 7 years old

I was in grade 2, maybe 3 …. the Lion King was the coolest thing, that and watching Full House and Family Matters.

My biggest concern was being good enough, to earn a sticker in school each day and getting the immediate backseat on the school bus.

I couldn’t say I would want to be this age again – while sometimes I HATE the responsibility of being an adult — I do love the independence.

I wouldn’t necessarily warn myself of anything to come, but I would remind myself constantly that when things get tough, your parents have your back like no one else – I would tell myself to laugh as much as possible, at everything.  And be kind, even to those who aren’t kind to you.

Funny enough, I would give my 7 year old self the same advice that I would give my 17 year old self ( I would probably add, stop wearing so much makeup to my 17 year old self) and to my 27 year old self.

Tell me kids, what would you tell 7 year old you?
