Day 125-130


Day 125 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. Friday, November 4th, 2016.

I'm grateful I got some exercise in. 40 minutes on the treadmill. I nearly made my goal.

I was able to get a few housewife chores done before work, so I'm grateful for that as well.

I was trying a different format as far as pictures. Whaddya think?


Day 126 of 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. Saturday, November 5th, 2016.

Today, I am grateful I have a sense of humor. 

It was strange because I wasn't feeling good and I only did 20 minutes of yoga. I'm starting to feel better and I'm grateful for that. 

I had more, but I'm learning to keep my mouth shut more. I'm grateful for that as well!


Day 127 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. Sunday, November 6th, 2016.

So, despite the fact my day was rushed to go see my grandma and aunt at my parents house, and despite the fact that I had to head off to work shortly after, I'm at least grateful I got to see them. Even if it was only for a little bit.

I'm also grateful I only have 2 and a half hours left until I can go home!


Day 128 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

Nothing days. I'm grateful for nothing days. I went to the doctor, got something to eat, went home, took a nap, and had dinner. Now I'm watching hockey before bed because I have an early shift tomorrow. The nap spoiled me.



Day 129 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. Wednesday, November 8th, 2016.

I am grateful I got out of work early. I look forward to having two days off. I pray I'll finally get the things I need done.


Day 130 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. Thursday, November 10th, 2016. 

It almost gets to the point to where I feel no matter what I post, good or bad, I get negative feedback from it. 

I try to say something good and I get told I'm negative. I give out my POV and I'm told I need to try harder. It's like you're damned if you do, damned if you don't. 

Anyway, I got a few more things done today so I am grateful for that. I took a nap earlier, which is why I'm turning this in so late. But I'm fading fast. I'll make it quick.

I'm grateful for the good friends I do have on here. Thanks for understanding I'm just as human as the rest of you. And if the rest of you are wondering. I act the same way online as I do in person.

Whisper To Me

Hey there!

I was trying to upload something onto WordPress through the app I have on my phone tablet , and it just won't let me. So here's my story I'll write through here in Blogger for now, and paste the rest later when I get home from work.

So, how many of you are familiar with the Whisper app? It wasn't so bad at first , but then others realize the anonymity of it , and they think they can say whatever they want without having any consequences or karma to deal with .

As you keep going further, you'll notice there are nothing but kids on there.  IDK IMO just because it's rated T, shouldn't mean that teens should be on there.  I think that place is more gravitated to horny older adults, and pot heads.

Then again, Tumblr is supposed to be rated M for mature, and yet you see kids posting in there.  But I like Tumblr. I like Pinterest, Blogger and WP.  I do not like Whisper (and I'm sure they do not like me).

Earlier this week, I put in a request to have my account cancelled.  I have not heard back from them.  If I don't hear back by Friday, I will send in another request.

Days 116-124

Dates: 10/25/16-11/3/16

Day 116 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

Another lazy day. I can't complain. I think I got some laundry and exercise done.

Eh, tomorrow I'll try to get my goals done! :)
Day 117 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. Thursday, 10/27/16

Today was a tough day. I woke up not feeling the greatest. Then I have haters that feel comfortable to insult me behind the computer. They would never have the guts to say it to my face as I would probably punch them.

Anyway. I am grateful for my little dog. I'm grateful I got to go to the mall to buy my makeup. I'm grateful I had a second day off in a row. I'm grateful I only have one job now. Things are looking up. I can't let a few bad moments shake me down!


Day 118 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. Friday, October 28th, 2016.

I am grateful for learning. I'm a few steps away, but I believe ultimately, I'll get there. I just feel it's bad karma to say.

Day 119 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. Saturday, October 29th, 2016.

I'm grateful I got some exercise in before work. Now I'm watching Dark Shadows.



Day 120 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. Sunday, October 30th, 2016.

I'm grateful I made it another ten days! This is not easy for me as there are constant obstacles in my way. I guess that's all a part of the challenge to find something to be grateful for. 

This journey has shown me who is willing to stick with me during my positive times, and not think or assume I'm bragging about something good in my life.

Keep in mind every day I am struggling to find one thing to be grateful for. Most days there's nothing to report, and so it can get a bit repetitive at times. Although I don't believe I've posted the same sets of pictures twice now, and that's something else I can be grateful for. I put my time and effort into this. Even when I'm dead tired or depressed.

Even when I get people bashing me on stupid stuff like telling me how depression is a disorder, not a feeling. Whatever. 

But that is all. I'm grateful for those who follow and comment. I'm grateful for those that leave positive comments as well!


Day 121 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. Monday, October 31st, 2016.

On the bottom right, the quote, I want to understand and be the world. I'm tired of allowing myself to become a victim. I'm tired of letting people yell at me and walk all over me.

I will work on it. I'm grateful for this realization. 


Day 122 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. 

I went to work and got home and went to sleep. Even though I got plenty of sleep last night, I still woke up from my nap groggy. You would think I'm allowed a pass for having a grumpy moment, but it doesn't happen that way. When I'm good, I get punished. When I have a bad moment, I get treated worse.

Oh well. Live and learn. I'm grateful for living and learning.

Day 123 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016.

After the nap I took yesterday, past the time I awoke this morning, and all the way till about noon, I was in a hazy funk. I can't explain it really. I just felt so groggy, like I was there, but I wasn't present in my head or body.

I was grateful when the funk ended because I was able to concentrate on what I needed to get done. I don't know if it's because morning shifts are not my thing or what. I've never really been a morning person. I mean I can get up, but as far as being a functional adult, fuggedaboutit! LOL.

I'm also grateful I can laugh moments like these off.


Day 124 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. Thursday, November 3rd, 2016.

I got some cleaning done. Yesterday I bought a Stephen King book. I was reading the intro, and I had no idea he had a funny side to him!

I got off topic. So I got the kitchen clean and I managed to finish a load of laundry. I was so busy cleaning, I forgot to make phone calls and stop at the post office. I swear I was cleaning today lol. Baby steps. I hope tomorrow I can get some cleaning and exercise--maybe even some sun--done before I go to work. 

I'm grateful for music. I was listening to it while I was cleaning. 

Alright, I'm a little tired now. 

Oh, I almost forgot. I found inspiration to post a blog. I just need more time now LOL

Ecrits Blogophilia Week 37.9 Topic: “More Than This” (Irene)
Hard (2 pts): Quote Pablo Picasso (Gerard)

"Everything you can imagine is real."
Easy (1 pt): Incorporate “the sands of time” (Stormy)

Picture:  (Barbara)

Dancing in the Streets

Everything you can imagine is real
Explore the happiness you can feel

And running with the sands of time
Running away from the narrow line

You too, can be dancing in the streets
And march to songs of different beats

There has to be more to life than this
To choose to find that heavenly bliss

Day 112-115


Day 112 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

At night before going to sleep, I tend to write in my journal and turn the TV on music choice soundscapes station. On there, they have quotes I like. Well, I found one I liked from Alan Watts and so I check out as many quotes as I can. So today's challenge is brought to you by how grateful I am to stumble upon quotes when needed. And it almost seems like it fits so perfectly into my life.


Day 113 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. Saturday, October 22, 2016.

Today was a good day. I got to turn in a writing. I am not feeling as sad as I have been lately. Work wasn't so bad as the haters were not around to complain about me due to their own actions.

I was given another brilliant idea from the person who created this challenge. Like I had made a promise to myself to blog at least once a week--which I do in fact blog once a week. Some of my posts are more set to private these days. I'm not ready for the public--to write at least 300 words per day.

Today was a slow day at work. I'm grateful for good days. Now it's time for bed.
Day 114 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. 

Well, my day has not been so bad. 

I cannot express how much I am grateful for makeup. It makes a difference for me.

I love my little boo boo kitty.

And as for the other pics...I sing in my car. I think I sound decent, but others may not. And I do tend to have a short attention span even though I don't think of myself as creative.

I'm also grateful tomorrow is Monday, and my day off.

Day 115 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. 

I'm grateful for days off. Today was pretty much a blur. Eh, that's all I got.

Black Rain (Irene)

Incorporate a Johnny Cash lyric (Tyler)
You can run on for a long time
Sooner or later God'll cut you down.

Include a fireball (Christopher)

Picture:  (Jessica)


Black rain

How I've been waiting for you
Come and wash away this pain
You can run on for a long time
I'm still waiting on black rain

The fireball butterflies throw
Would be on a shorter chain
A better hit of what I'll miss
Waiting upon you, black rain

You can run on for a long time
Think you are blind to this fate
Eventually it will run you down
Sometimes sooner, mostly late

The black rain finds everyone

Day 111

Day 111 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. 

I made it another 10 days. That's good. Today was 2 months since my childhood best friend left this world. It seems strange to not talk to her occasionally. You just assume you'll always have time, and then the time passes by so fast. I guess that's why I used to get mad at friends that would never take the time for me the way I did for them. In a way, I'm just one of those old fashioned people.

And I'm grateful for being old fashioned, even if it is a dying breed. I will keep believing and holding out for that one special, old fashioned friend.

That's my gratuity challenge for Thursday, October 20th, 2016.

Day 110

Day 110 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. 

I'm grateful I able to go home for once from work, and it was still light out. I would have loved to have gotten some extra sleep, but that's okay.

Day 109

Day 109 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge.

I'm grateful for my last day at the Y. Sure there are some I will miss, and most I won't. I literally cried the other night upon seeing my paycheck from there. I was crying because I worked my butt off there for a few measly dollars. I might as well have been a volunteer there the way I was working.

I was elated because I'll no longer have to work with people that didn't want me around to begin with. I was elated because I wouldn't be around those who took their time to belittle me by making little snide comments to me. I was also elated because I won't have to deal with the members that didn't like me anyway. I'll miss my morning crew though. I know some that did appreciate my presence.

I'm mostly happy because I can now go home after work and sleep. I can take an actual day off. It's a much deserved one, trust me. And that's about it.

Earlier as I was emptying out the trash, I went to open up a clean bag and--I kid you not--my name tag knocked off and landed in the garbage bag. If that's not a sign I don't know what is!

As far as the other picture, I just like Supernatural memes.

Day 108

Day 108 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. Monday, 10/17/16.

I'm grateful I found some old music to keep me company on my long journey to return my phone and exchange it for something completely different. 

Eh, I'll leave it at that as this is a gratuity challenge. :)

Day 106

Day 106 of The 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. 

I'm grateful for good friends and family. I'm grateful for my husband and son. My son put wiper blades on my vehicle. I got some exercise and yoga in so I'm pretty happy. Now I'm ready to go home for the night.

Day 105

Day 105 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. Friday, October 14th, 2016.

I don't know what I'm grateful for LOL. I guess I'm just grateful I am finally home so I can get some sleep! :)

Day 104

Day 104 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. 

I'm grateful I got to watch a game to where I didn't jinx the team! LOL.

I'm grateful for making my 5 mile goal and 12,000 steps before midnight.

Most of all, I'm grateful for realizing things about myself. Like just how grateful I truly am. There are others out there that would love to be in my situation. And I'm not saying that to sound like I'm full of myself, but I think most live with the grass is greener complex. I'm grateful for my own green grass.

Day 103

Day 103 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. 

I'm grateful I can accept humility. And I'm grateful for humble moments.

Tuesday, October 11, 2016

Day 102

Day 102 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. 

I'm grateful for realizing things about myself.

Sometimes I can have a one-way tracked mind when it comes to some things I want or desire in life. I never usually think about the consequences or karma until after the fact.

I wish sometimes I could be different, but I am not. This is just who I am. Still, even though I have a one-tracked mind, it doesn't mean I'll ever have the very thing I want. I may never get out of my own head for all I know. That is still my decision, and not for anyone else to reflect their feelings upon me.

I'm grateful for these realizations.

Day 98

Day 98 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. 

I'm grateful for making it this far. I had no idea I had it in me to be this dedicated to something considering how flighty I can be.

Day 97

Day 97 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. 

I'm grateful for another lazy day. 

I am feeling better enough to exercise, but I just did 20 minutes of tread time, and I think I'm dying! LOL! It's weird considering I only missed a day of exercise. 

Here's to lazy days.
