Adult Revelations...

So, it's question number 4 for Summer Blogging Camp.


I say question number 4 because I joined in late and can't commit to an everyday thing.

What has most surprised you about being an adult? What have you learned about yourself through blogging?

When I was a kid/teen, I thought I would have FREEDOM and would be able to do what I want when I wanted. Yes, in my last post, I stated that I do just that. I do for the most part but there are lots of days when I just can't. But, I am learning to just say no to people. Which is hard because I feel terrible saying NO to my mother and daughters. But, damn, I need a break to do my own thing.

So, I have learned that I can't do whatever, whenever. Which sucks! But that is the life of an adult. Also, I didn't expect to learn "wisdom" so late. I thought I would magically be "wise" and know about life at a certain age. I am still waiting for that to happen. But, I do know more that I did when I was a teen (thank the lord) and know more that when I was in my 20s and 30s (again, thank the lord). So, learning is a gradual lifelong process. But it seems like a waste of time. If only, I knew certain things then, I would have made better choices and lived a happier life.

I'm sure when I am 60, I will say to myself, "Gee, if I only can have my 40s back and do it all over again with what I know." 

So, you just have to take things one day at a time and live in the present. Stop worrying about the past and the future. You have no control over either. Slow down and stop and smell the roses. Of which there is plenty. The dishes, laundry, and floors will wait. People will not unfortunately. Yes, enjoy the people in your life. But, please don't let them drive you crazy. Sometimes, you have to say no that can wait another day because today is mine.

What have I learned through blogging? Through blogging I have learned about Twitter. And through both of these mediums, I have learned that it is okay to be me and have all of my flaws. I am still a good person and don't have to be perfect. Also, I have learned that I have to blog my way, or it's no way at all. Which reminds me of my favorite song, by Loverboy (yes, loverboy, I love them): Turn Me Loose. I've got to do it my way or no way at all. And thank God for spellcheck. Now if only my iPhone could learn spellcheck properly.

Expansion

Early this morning we had an eclipse of the moon. It was a full moon and the eclipse turned the moon red. I have been noticing the effects of the moon on my body and mood since September when I had a return of my panic attacks.I finally feel that I've conquered that with the help of meds and meditations. Lot's of meditation, relaxing music, plenty of spiritual reading, and soul searching. 

Everything isenergy. Even us. So when I get anxious and nervous now, I try to remember that it's just energy. That what I'm feeling is the energy in me and all around me. I'm fine and everything is okay and as it should be. I take deep breaths and make sure I work on clearing my chakras everyday and do my meditations at night. I want to get off the meds, but my intuition is telling me to wait until I am whole. I don't feel whole quite yet. But, everyday things are getting better. I'm feeling a calmness and serenity in me. I'm feeling happier and more joyful everyday.

Conflicting Feelings

My fingers are itching to type and my mind is in overdrive again. It's scary to pour your heart out. But, I did get a good response on my last post. The response was on Facebook. I really really wish people would comment on the blog post itself also :)

Well, maybe I should explain why I am so upset with religion??

Religion specifically Christianity;

We are taught:

To be separate from the world; to not mix and mingle with the world; if you do you will be influenced by them for the badTo just listen to God's laws and if you don't you are a problemThat we are not to believe in rituals and spiritualism  To listen to God and not ourselves; we just can't be trustedTo look down on people who are not us or who think and act differently (yes, I hear your protests that this is not so)That we are sinners who can never measure up 
Why is this bothering me so?
It has caused me nothing but anxiety attacks and low self-esteemIt has inhibited me from further progressing; my mind has never …

The Best Darn Stain Remover

I got this recipe from Pinterest. This is great for any stain you might have. It's the only thing I use. And it's easy. Easy is my middle name. In more ways than one lol.
In a Spray Bottle mix:

1 part of Dawn Dishwashing Detergent (the old blue kind)
2 parts of Hydrogen Peroxide

Shake. Spray. Throw in the wash.


That's it. It's stinky. But don't let that stop you. It works and it's easy. When you put it through the wash you can't smell it anymore. I promise.
