No- stress

When I feel overwhelmed I take a little break from the computer and social media. I’ve been taking the time to read and color some of my books. I began reading a great book that I receive from a friend (thanks Linda), soon to finish and give my honest review.

My son’s wedding is approaching and my in-laws already arrived. My daughter and the girls will be here next week and I can’t wait to hear laughter and noise all over the house. I love that. However, I’m behind in a few stuffs for the wedding and my dress is one of them. I can’t find nothing I like and the wedding is in two weeks. I’m getting stressed out. When you live in a small town it’s difficult to find something you like. Maybe a trip to the city will be the best choice.

 

Suddenly

My granddaughters just ask me what are we doing today? It’s a Saturday and usually we go to the mall, do groceries, and eat out. I look at them sitting in my comfortable chair with my legs up and told them, we are staying home.

After been cleaning all morning and doing laundry, I just want to watch a movie or maybe finished watching “This is Us” or “The Americans”. I can’t decide which one. My husband wants to watch “Longmire”. I like that one, too.

I look at their faces and it was priceless. Possibly they’re thinking I’m lazy and bored. At this point the idea of going out it’s not in my plans.

Suddenly, they came down in their pajamas. They also want to stay home and they didn’t want to say anything. They thought they will hurt my feelings.

What a wonderful Saturday sitting in my chair, with my legs up, and the remote control. I better pour a glass of wine for the finishing touch.

Present

If you are depressed you are living in the past.

If you are anxious you are living in the future.

If you are at Peace you are living in the Present.

~Lao Tzu

 

 

If you are depressed, you are living in the past. – When I’m depressed it could be I’m not as cheerful with myself. Yes, I like to remember the past and if I’ve one chance I would change a few things. However, remembering the past brings joy to my life.

If you are anxious, you are living in the future. – Once a while I feel anxious, but living in the future not too sure.

If you are at Peace, you are living in the Present. – This is the path I intend to be. It’s difficult, but achievable. We are living in a society where you get judged easily. Trying to live a peaceful life it’s hard to get.

What should I do to keep myself at peace and living the present?

1- I love to read and when I do, it takes me to a different world.
2- When I’ve the time I like to write, especially short stories.
3- A few months ago, I begin buying coloring books for adults. Since then I’ve already bought over twenty. I love spending the time coloring. It makes me feel calm and peaceful. That means I’m living in the present.

 

Daily Prompt: Present

#JusJoJan Daily Prompt Day 8th -Pants

The other day I was mentioning to my husband how much weight I’ve lost and no one from my family has said a word. The reason I was making the comment was my sister also has loss some weight. My family has made comments how great she looks. It’s true she looks great; however, why no one has noticed my weight loss. I didn’t get it. I’ve lost 35 pounds and she has loss 20.

However, my sister has bought new outfits in smaller size and for me I’m using the same large pants. Why? Beside I don’t have the time to shop for myself. I would like to wait to lose another 10 pounds. I need to confess I must go shopping. It’s time to join my sister shopping spree. It’s time to get rid of the large pants.

Linda’s #JusJoJan January 8, 2018 Daily Prompt is “Pants”.

 

#JusJoJan Daily Prompt Day 7~Indelible

The word indelible makes me think of tattoos. I personally don’t like them it’s painful and permanent in your skin. Also, when you grow older the tattoos look discolored and wrinkle. This is my personal opinion without offending anyone who loves them.

My daughter loves them too. She had five small tattoos. I told her to please don’t get anymore and for now I believe she’s done. However once a while she’s trying to convince myself to have a mother-daughter one, but then again, it’s not for me.

They’re a hilarious commercial on T.V. regarding a girl eating a snicker, meanwhile doing a tattoo what it appears to be a tough guy’s arm. Suddenly he stares at it and says “no regerts”. She keeps eating her snicker saying “sorry”. I love this commercial it makes me laugh. However, it’s made my point to be careful when having a permanent ink.
