SoCs- “empty”

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “the last thing you emptied.” Think of the last thing you emptied or something you empty often and use it as your prompt any way you like. Have fun!

 I have been cleaning the house. I have a full garbage bag with empty cleaning containers, bottles of shampoo, soap, lotion, and many others. I emptied my garbage can, it was kind of heavy but then everything was refilled again.

It’s early morning and everyone is still asleep. I’m taking a few moments for myself with my cup of coffee and on the computer.

My Saturday will be a busy one with chores to finish and grocery shopping. However, for tonight a bottle of wine will be waiting for me, so another empty bottle.

SoCS- “Wild Animal”

I go to work at 5:30 am so you can imagine not a lot of traffic and during the winter time it’s dark. I have to be very careful when I’m driving because on the route, I take to work they always have deer. It looks like an entire family, that’s what I call them. They get blinded by the light of the cars so they run from one side to the other. They are looking for food. Some residents are feeding them and it’s illegal. It’s frustrating and also scary since they can cause an accident. I have learned to be patient. I don’t want to hit one with my vehicle.

Then, back from work by 2 pm, no deer. However, we have wild turkeys roaming around in the afternoon. Again, I think is an entire family. Those are the worse because of their slow motion and sometimes they don’t want to move. The reason the animals keep coming back is that some residents are feeding them and it’s illegal.

This is my everyday driving from home to work.

SoCS- “Heart”

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “heart.” Use it any way you like. Have fun!

February is the month of love, hearts, flowers, and chocolates. I have been evaluating my goals, what to improve, and what is working for me. I do notice in the first month of January I have been pushing myself to get things done. I checked my previous journals and they all look the same. January and February are tough months for me.  It looks like I put a lot of heart into it with no results.   Those two months were the ones when I was depressed, feeling blah, and miserable.

We are in the second week of February and I want to make changes. I do realize I’m in the same cycle over and over. I have to change directions and look at my life differently. For this month I’m going to concentrate on one goal, “Love Myself”. If I want to be happy, be created, and accomplish what I love then I have to put myself first. I have to be confident that no matter what happens I can have a better life.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
