Yup, today is #TBT a.k.a “Throwback Thursday” as we’ve come to know it where we travel down memory lane via pics of our past selves, often embarrassing yet comical pictures of who we were when…..!
I’ve actually had plenty thoughts about things I wanted to get off my chest or put to paper just to rid myself of the idle chatter in my head but then somehow I get distracted and just like that blogging becomes a distant thought. (This too I’m working on).
So back to this “Ten Things Thursday” which I am committed and dedicated to doing and perhaps enough to even make a regular thing which could be a GREAT way to up my blogging. (One step/thought at a time [note to self]).
Back to my current situation…….
1. I wonder sometimes how social media would’ve changed my childhood. We played outside, actually had to work in school (no internet to easily look things up), had to have real interaction with others, etc.
2. Do shorter work weeks often feel like really loooong work weeks?
3. Remember when only a certain type of woman drank stiff cocktails….now seems like EVERYONE drinks!
4. Does anyone else want to see “The Fault in Our Stars” or am I the only one?
5. In life, sometimes the RIGHT thing and the HARDEST thing are the SAME thing. <—let that marinade.
6. Social media is both a blessing and the devil, moreso the devil because of those who taint it and use it for bad.
7. Remember when “baby daddy” was not an acceptable term nor mainstream?
8. As a dear friend of mine would say, “an empty wagon makes a lot of noise” to which I often wonder why do people who are really empty, insecure, etc. always have so much to say.
9. Why do people (of a particular age, 30+) still make excuses for their lives, for what did or didn’t happen vs taking the present by the reigns in order to make changes in the future. We all have a past; we all have to face life (some with more challenges than others yes but still) so why not use the numerous resources available to do differently.
10. Finally, my current thought while paying homage to the dearly departed Maya Angelou (may God rest her soul): “My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.” – Maya Angelou
That is all!
