Age is just a number,” says the well-worn adage. But is it a number you care about, or one you tend (or try) to ignore?
Over the years I’ve had very mixed feeling about this. When I was younger the number was very significant, it was a right of passage, a goal in order to reach certain achievements/ experiences. However, once you reach your early twenties and you’ve got over the initial ” I’m 21 and can do anything now I’m an adult” then age doesn’t seem as important until you reach thirty. When as a women turning thirty scares the crap out of me. I”m suppose to officially be all settled down and organised”. I’m suppose to now what I want from life and at least be prepared for it. Oh yeah right, I’m not ready I’m still finalising my mortgage, I work in an ok job but I’m still not worked out all the bits to finally start trying for a family. Which according to the NHS I have to start thinking about because my fertility is all down hill from here. Yay!
So I believe it’s the big numbers that people care about and it signifies the next stage that socially we should adhere to, but it’s the experiences and memories that truly matter that accompany those numbers that make it so important.
I caught myself smiling today, That true smile you cant fight back even if you tried. I like to call it my eye smile, because even if you covered my mouth, you’d know I was smiling. Its the twinkle in my eye that screams she’s happy. Is it though? Or is it the love smile. That moment when you catch yourself thinking about the person you love and you can’t help but think about them, smile and think about kissing, hugging, snuggling up with them.
What do you think? Happy or in Love smile?
Who or What makes you smile.
Sherlock Holmes had his pipe. Dorothy had her red shoes. Batman had his Batmobile. If we asked your friends what object they most immediately associate with you, what would they answer?
I decided to run a small experiment with this on and see what my actual friends would say. So I posted the above on my personal facebook and this is what they said…..
- My best friend shouted that I clearly had to have two items- PJ’s and Chocolate
- My declare that clearly my non-item would sarcasm
- But most of my friends said my camera.
I personally think all of these items are fab and I want all of them as my item. What would your item be?
It’s difficult to stay positive these days, with so many life demands picking away at you. It has become very easy to miss the small blessings in daily life.
Therefore, being inspired by 100 days of happiness. Once a week, I will remind my self (and in turn all of you) of the small daily life blessings that surround us everyday.
Hopefully, you will smile at the ridiculous things that make my life a happy one.
Week 1: ME time
I dont know what you guys do to relax but for me, I love some ME time. Now, this can be anything from a soak in the bath, reading, listening to music, or updating my blog as long as its actually that. ME time, a time when I’m not thinking about anyone or anything else.
What are you willing to do, to make yourself happy?
Wouldn’t it be great if life had a help button, that gave you the answers you seek! Sometimes it’s hard to know what to do or who to get advice from.
What would you ask?
Where do you go when you’re struggling to find an answer”
Its Summer, theres only one task that is a must. Summer reading list. Whether you’re off on a long flight, a beach/pool reader or simply a snuggle up on the sofa reader. How do you choose a good summer read.
Richard and Judy’s read list….. Are you kind of person to go by other people’s opinion of a good book? Whether thats richard and judy? Amazon’s top 100 or a friends recommendation.
At the end of the day we all have to decide whether that was a good book, worthly of my time.
Some people bleive its teh characters that make a good book great. if you really connect with them, and get into their mindset and believe in them or not.
A gripping Storyline?
For me, its whether the book is a pageturner, I must have to know what happens next. A truely book book in read in one sitting. the story has you so wrpped up in the world taht you cant put it down.
My mom love a book that gets her thinking. It must be full of suspence and twists that keep her on the edge of her seat.
Escape from reality?
My other favourite. Is an escape. The book where you forget the world is really here.
Whats your favourite book and why? What make’s it great?
