I Believe In You

You know, one of the scariest things in life, I think, is to… share with someone who’s not family, who’s not super close friend, umm, your dreams… for your life. And the most amazing thing is to have that person then support you, and believe in you, and give you more confidence that you can succeed at those things then you had yourself. Umm, yeah, like, that’s amazing! And I got to have that experience not too long ago which, umm, partially helped boost my, uh,…uh, goal to, uh, keep this going. Umm. And also just…uh, boosted my self-confidence in myself and in my…belief that I could make the things that I wanted happen. And that’s…crazy to me. Umm, I mean, I’m, you know…like, I had those goals and I had people who believed in me, and…all of those things. But…to have someone…that I wouldn’t have expected…I mean, not because they’re, I don’t think that people should believe in me. But because…I just…I don’t have that experience. So I…shared that part of myself and their immediate response was: You’ve got this. You can do this. Well of course you can do that? Why wouldn’t you do that? And my brain… had like a freak out moment where it was like: wait, that’s not the words that I was expecting to hear from them. …And…I…It’s just a…I…there’s…so many, so many emotions and so many things. But…to actually have that belief…can do so much. So it…makes me wanna…go out and believe in other people. You know? And share that sense of, of not having…boundaries put in front of you when you share something crazy. Umm, so yeah, positive thought for the day. Have a good one!

Out With The Old

All right so…another huge life event today, uh, well this week I guess. A couple of days ago I bought a new car, YAY, (laugh). Love new cars. Umm, and so today I sold my old car, which was kind of exciting, uh, but also very, very sad. Cause you know when you use something for a really long time, or you’ve owned something for a really long time, you finally decide that it’s time to get rid of it and pass it on. And then there’s that…post-ownership depression, I guess would be the best term for that, ah, shmeh, meh. Umm, but it, yeah like I was happy that I was selling my car cause I, I sold it to someone who really needed it. Umm, but at the same time I’d had that car for eleven years so… there was a little bit of my heart breaking as I saw them drive away in my car. Umm, yeah it was very sad. But, you know, I guess that’s kind of life, you know the passing off and realizing the things that you don’t need anymore.  Umm, and so you’re finally ready to step over them, or pass them off, or… you know whatever. And those of you who know me, know that I have a really hard time with getting rid of things that have sentimental value. So this was like… a big deal. Umm, but yeah I’m super excited about my new car. Umm, it’s…it’s very, very pretty. I’ll have ta…umm, post some pictures or something on here,…or… I don’t even know. But it’s a great car. Umm, so yeah, it just got me thinking about the things that we hold onto in life and, umm, when we decide that it’s time to, umm, purge those things from our life. Purge in a good way. Umm, you know, that… to step out of our comfort zone and get away from the sentimentality of it and just….clean house so to speak, sometimes literally. Umm, so yeah, so that’s my, my random thought for today. Hopefully you’re having a great day and hopefully this either gave you a laugh or, you know, just was fun to watch, (laugh). Thanks!

Goal Setting

Goal Setting. So I have been terrible my entire life with goal setting. But, lately I have been making progress on figuring out what I want to do and making plans to get there. So, today I realized just how amazing it is when you make progress of some kind, small step, big step, doesn’t matter what it is. But if it’s the right step, then, all of a sudden, you’re motivated to do so much more. Um… And that, just seems crazy to me, like, the, the change in my thinking, to be more positive. And the change in my energy level, umm, just from making changes in my life that are allowing me to get closer to the things that I want for myself. Umm…And it, you know I never really got it before. Umm, listening to people talk about: well you need to set a goal, then you need to set smaller goals, and you have to do this. And it…I just…I was like: that’s too much that’s… I can’t handle that. But…Now it kind of puts it in perspective so that I can make those changes better. Umm…So clearly one of them is to get back to my blogging. Umm…or vlogging, cause it’s a video log. Umm, but I…just thought…and was inspired to share that. That you know, if you find the right goal, you’re gonna get there. Umm, or you find the right step. Take that first step whatever it is and that sense of accomplishment and just the change in your perspective, depending on what it is, umm, can make a whole world of difference. So…good luck and thanks for listening and, and hopefully this…gave you some insight. I don’t even know. But, I’ll see ya’ll next time.

Georgiana Darcy's Diary by Anne Elliott

Hi ya’ll. I just finished reading, today, a book called: Georgiana Darcy’s Diary by Anna Elliott. And, basically what it does is it…takes the story of Pride and Prejudice and continues it. And I guess there’s, she has a whole series of, uh, books, so I’m definitely planning on checking those out. Umm…So Georgiana Darcy’s Diary is obviously Darcy’s sister, Georgiana. And it’s written in diary format, which is really interesting. Umm, it allows the voice to be that of the speaker in a really interesting way and it’s her…umm… life at Pemberly with, uh, Darcy and Elizabeth and, umm, sort of, it’s her chance at romance finally, cause those of us who are fans of the book, um, know that she was….umm…tsk, taken advantage of when she was younger. So it’s nice to see her get her, umm, chance, uh, at romance, so it’s a really neat…umm…storyline. And it’s really well written. I was actually really impressed with how close to Jane Austen’s writing style, umm, Anne Elliott was able to get. So…it’s still, it takes you back into that world without being… extra, umm, difficult. So you can sort of jump right in and follow along and it’s a really neat…umm…neatly written book. So, I definitely recommend it. I will probably check out some more of her books, umm, to see where else she takes these characters post, uh, Pride and Prejudice. And, umm, yeah, that’s all I have to say, so, we’ll see you next time.
