I remember back in the day when all I wore was dark and gloomy colors to conceal my body and then one day I just stopped caring what other people thought and started living for me and I have to say that wearing bold colors sure changes my mood and brightens my day! I don’t care what other people think or how they perceive me it’s all about how I feel about myself. Now that I’ve changed my thought process and I do what makes me happy I have to say it feels damn good! #selfconfidenceispowerful#livingmybestlife
The thing about time is that it keeps on going whether we do something with it or not. If we truly understood the VALUE of it we would cherish it way more than we do. It’s irreplaceable and once it’s gone, that’s it...
John C. Maxwell once said that we don’t pay for things with money, we pay for things with time. Think about it: we often say, “in “x” amount of time I’ll have enough money to buy this or do that.” A real world example is buying a house. The average home loan in America is a 30-year fixed rate mortgage. Which means that your home will cost you 30 years of your life!
My point in all of this, is that we just don’t understand how valuable time actually is. I think that if we did we wouldn’t take it for granted as much. Personally I know I take the time that I have for granted. And so much of it gets wasted on the wrong things. So this week I finally chose to stop talking and start doing. I took one small action to help me to be more aware and present in various areas of my life and I’d say for day 3, it’s going pretty well so far🥰🙌🏽💚💛❤️
1284 days without alcohol means 1284 days without BUYING ALCOHOL. So. When I started out with the OYNB challenges, I had an idea. I would put £10 x 5 aside each week, as that’s roughly what I was spending on alcohol. Sometimes more, if I had added in night’s out, rarely less. Gulp. I went to the bank and demanded £ 50 pound notes - they hid when they saw me coming, as it involved them going to the locked safe ?😂- and I put the notes between the pages of a book on Venice. Because for me that proved a great incentive. Do the 90 day challenge, save up for an away break in Venice with a then-friend. More about her later. The money started to add up and I loved its proximity and physicality. It was there among the pages of a book in Venice, which I read and reread. After about eight weeks I went to Venice. I changed the pounds into euros. I calculated that the undrinking money would pay for the hotel and my spending money. It did, and some. I still have some leftover euros from that trip that I keep as a reminder. That money really does grow on AF trees. The then-friend? Now a non-friend. She drank while we were there. Not hugely but annoyingly, in that she couldn’t eat in a restaurant apparently without drinking ‘the local wine’. She kept red wine in our shared bedroom. I wasn’t long into not drinking as she knew and although I didn’t and still don’t expect drinking friends to not drink, it would be nice once in a while when you are together in such close quarters for a week on holiday. Anyway, that trip made me realise that we had precious little in common, apart from a shared past when young. That’s what non drinking does. It roots you firmly in reality and you assess people, situations, more accurately, more perceptively. If we’d been drinking together on that trip, the realisation would not have dawned on me. Also, to be fair, I was probably pretty hard to take 😂 as in the first year of not drinking I had to suppress my irritation and intolerance of those who drank. It was part of my protective armour but was probably annoying as hell. And old friends usually don’t want their old friends to change. And non drinkers can make drinkers feel uncomfortable. Anyway
It's only Wednesday, but we're ready for those Weekend drinks!
