Some days are just a little tougher than others and I’m just thinking out loud here while giving myself a pep talk. By nature I am a positive person, an optimist that always believes in the silver lining and the lessons that are to be learned in even the most challenging of situations. Im humble and I don’t rant much, but as you know it helps to get your thoughts into words and onto paper. It is one of those nights and writing allows me to make peace with whatever is bothering me. I usually get it out there, process it and hopefully be done with it and move on. Most of the time it works and if it is one thing I always try to do, I definitely try not take to bed with me. Chances are that if it bothers me at night, it will still be there in the morning to remind me that I haven’t properly dealt with the situation yet. For sure I could have used the war bonnet tonight as my inner warrior once again had to rise and stand up for common courtesies gone missing in rudeness.
Truth is that there are days we all feel a little defeated and I know that I am not the only one. Another reason to put this onto paper just in case somebody else needs a little pep talk. ❤️

*We endure letting time slip past us, having to perform mundane tasks that don’t touch our hearts.

*We endure not being given the chance to contribute while all we want to do is help and be heard.

*We endure to be treated with contempt as if we are not humane or worthy of compassion.
Truth is that our words sometimes fall onto deaf ears and nobody is listening.
*We endure that life simply is too busy and nobody takes time to make us a priority, even for a moment.

*We endure the lack of patience we are shown too often, to find it replaced with humiliation and belittling.

*We endure the fact that many think they are just a little bit more important than ourselves. At least according to their behavior and I am given the feeling that I matter very little.
Truth is, there will always be those days and you need to hold on to our beliefs. This will be hard on some days and you will be tested, but you will not stoop down to that level but instead practice forgiveness for those that are lost. You can do it…

Truth is, that you are unique and special and you have everything to offer. Don’t ever change that and don’t ever close your heart.

Truth is when you find yourself having to endure, remember that this too shall pass and better times are around the corner. And remember that you always have a choice and your new life is just a choice away.

No War bonnet tonight and it looks like it was more like “First Blood – Rambo style”

PS. And yes you have to be able to do something silly that pulls you out of the funk and helps you laugh it off. In my case it was a simple as wearing the belt of this shirt dress wrapped around my head which turned into Rambo. Did I already mention that I’m easily amused?

  1. I do love your optimism! I usually jump around like a mad woman and do crappy impersonations that have my daughter glaring at me with a look that says: Really???
    Enjoy your hiking! I should do that myself. The lovely trails of the Peak District are less than 1 hour away from my home and I don’t go there enough. xx

  2. Totally rockin’ that belt if you ask me 😉 Writing is a vital process for human beings to make sense of the world. I’m reading a book about Academic Writing (for my studies) and the writers propose the theory that writing (even something like a thesis) is a performance. And in that performance we take ideas and thoughts that we’ve learned along the way and put it onto paper in an effort to articulate how we feel. So carry on performing and writing…and we’ll continue to read 🙂 Stay weird and wonderful you beautiful soul!

    1. What a beautiful response Kamalini and you always make my day. Thank you so much and once again your kindness is touching my heart.
      I read your words and it is always as if you have found a way to articulate what resides within my heart. We truly must be souls connected from afar and it takes one beautiful soul to know another. Thank you for always encouraging me and for being there. And most of all for always taking the time and understanding what I’m trying to express. Hugs my dear friend….

  3. I love this post, and the inspiration that gave me reading of the endurance provided by resisting some difficulties I feel cose to my life experience too…
    I love your style of writing too and as I’m improving my english with a special #UsetheenglishLuke contest I make to motivate myself, I took some of your words (the ones that I don’t know in english) to create one of my posts.
    If you like to see it you can find it here: https://lucapovoleri.wordpress.com/2016/09/15/saying-goodbye-to-that-summer-love/
    And of course any correction it will be an honor and a blessing for me as I’d like to be able to write like you someday! 🙂

    1. I feel very honored Luca and I can’t thank you enough. You are already an amazing writer and I love your blog. There may be some words here and there where the built of the sentence doesn’t flow as intended, but this comes with practice and time. The main thing is to keep at it and being around the language helps a lot. This may be a problem for you and maybe YouTube videos or any material in the English language can help. I learned it reading a book and translating / looking up the words I didn’t know. Much like you.
      It doesn’t have to be perfect and your passion for writing and your subjects comes through which is a talent not everybody has. Be proud of that and thank you for your kind words.

      1. Thank you very much to take time to read my text. Yes I feel moved by your text and you use some great words that gives color to my ideas. You’re right, perfections is not my aim, but I really like this language, it helps me getting more concise and direct as normally I write too much. English gives me balance, and well your post (i loved the uninstall negativity image) made me feel like I feel sometimes at night, waking up with those same feelings… so thank you for your attention and for the good ideas about youtube (i don’t really use it that much but I need to as you’re right it’s a great source for material). Have a great day and well… see you on your blog!! 😉

      2. Thank you Luca, your passion for the language will help you to perfect it. It’s always easier to learn when we show interest in something and while I don’t know how long you have been learning, I think you are doing amazing.
        As always, thank you for taking the time, have a great day.
        Italy is one of my most favorite countries and I visited often as I lived in Germany ❤️
