To be quite honest with you, I didn’t know what to write for today’s post. I had a bad week and I’m still feeling down. Nothing special happened to put me in this bad mood, on the contrary, we went to Cirque du Soleil last week, today it’s hubby’s birthday…
But, it’s just the way I’m feeling at the moment: negative and upset for no particular reasons.
Although I love what I’m doing with my writing and my blogging, I feel there is a lack of opportunities coming my way, like if there’s nothing happening in my life, the same thing every day…
Every project I have in my head seem to have a mountain of obstacles coming with them, I feel I have no patience and willing to tackle all these problems.
So, because this year it’s all about this quote:
Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it. – Groucho Marx
And, especially because I can’t find words to describe exactly the confusion inside me, I decided to play a little game to cheer me up.
I read The Ten S’s from Shitika Anand over at Sweet Dreams in my World where she listed the ten S’s of her life (S for the first letter of her name).
So, here’s the ten R’s of my life (thanks for a little help from the dictionary!)
This is definitely a word that describes me very well. I always loved telling and writing stories. I also love hearing the stories of others. There are always lots of ideas going through my mind.
This word is very important for me now. It’s about considering a new career, new work opportunities, new options. I’m finding myself confused since I decided to put law aside. I know I want to write and I love doing it but this is not an easy path, it’s not something that it’s going to give me a regular income in a near future.
I’m open to comments, constructive criticisms and new ideas. I think it’s the best way to learn and correct my mistakes.
I think the only way to go is to remain faithful to who you are. Being proud of yourself, your accomplishments, recognise your mistakes and learn from them. There will always be people who will like you and others who won’t but, the most important is to embrace who you are.
Even though I consider myself to be a dreamer, I’m also rational. Especially when my anxiety kicks off, it always brings me back to reality.
When I feel nervous, the best ways to relax for me are knitting, reading, having a cup of tea or coffee. I also try to remember what my mum use to tell me: “When you’re doing something and it’s not working, don’t get upset. Just stop, leave it and do something else. When you will get back to it later on, you will be able to do it.” Most of the time, it’s true!
Religion is so important in my life. I need to believe in something bigger and stronger than us. I need to pray, I need to go to church. For me, it’s a place of peace and meditation.
People from different cultures and faiths should try to talk to each other more often to understand their differences. I think multiculturalism is something amazing, something we should take advantage of so we can open our mind to new possibilities and new experiences. I think all our differences are what make this world such an interesting place.
This is such an important word. If people remember this word more often, we could avoid many fights and hassles.
This city will always have a special place in my heart. This is where I met the man who literally changed my life and made me move from one side of the world to the other.
Again, I’m tagging all IBOT’ers and all my readers to put up a post with the ten words of their life starting by the first letter of their first name. If you’re not a blogger, just write these words in the comment section.
So, tell me: What are the ten … of your life?
