The Small Things

12 Feb

So here’s the thing. Everyone in your life is going to let you down in some way at one point or another, more than likely once. Now most of them won’t even do this intentionally. Obviously the people close to you don’t want to hurt you. Let’s just face it though, it’s going to happen.

Most of us have been told this on more than occasion. So you think you’d be use to you when it happens? Or at least expect it from certain people. Even expecting it doesn’t prepare your for the sting when it does happen. Especially when you know it’s not intentional and you really don’t know how or don’t want to tell them how it made you feel.

I’m really really bad about this. I don’t like to hurt people’s feelings, so usually if my feelings are really really hurt, I don’t let that person know. I know they would most likely feel bad for making me feel that way or even worse, not understand why I feel that way and get upset at me for it.

I had a small disappointment today, one that I expected, but it still hurt me and upset me when it happened. The biggest annoyance to me, is that it really was something small. Then I thought about it and it lead to a spiral of me thinking about other people in my life who have let me down and how I’ve always been told that this is just going to happen.

Now I feel bad for feeling this way and I’m too scared to tell anyone that I feel this way…and it’s all the little things lately that are weighing me don’t. I’m not sure why. It’s not like my life sucks or anything. I’m pretty happy right now and have a lot to look forward to…but I feel guilty for feeling the way I do now.

I know this feeling will pass, maybe even within the hour. It will most likely be something small :p since though small things can weigh me down, it’s usually the smallest things that mean the most to me and make me the happiest.

Sorry for spilling my guts to you guys right now. I’m just working through some stuff.

How do you guys get through the small things that aren’t significant and weren’t intentional?

Thanks for listening to me tonight. Hopefully someone can feel a little better reading this and knowing they aren’t alone. It really does get better!

Hopefully I’ll have something more interesting to post next time. :p Hopefully everyone is well.

Good night, good morning, happy birthday, or whatever else it may be when you are reading this.

Love Always,

Happy Saturday!

18 Oct

Happy Saturday lovely readers! Today I want to encourage everyone to read something, though honestly, I’m sure most of you do and you’re not the ones I really wish would read something. Haha.

But just find something nice to stimulate your mind today. Fiction or non fiction. Happy or sad. Just something to enjoy but also get you thinking. Sadly, especially where I come from, a lot of people don’t use their brains anymore. I’m frustrated with how many people I see that just blindly follow things and never question anything. It’s almost sad, but when it starts effecting gov laws and every day life, it gets a bit frustrating.

I was always taught, from a very young age, to question everything! It’s ok. It’s healthy and normal to question things. It’s supposed to help you learn more about yourself and what you understand, what you believe.

You know, thinking about it, I believe that because we live in such a fast paced society, that probably has a lot to do with the issues that I’m frustrated with. People don’t stop and take the time too read because it’s too long. People aren’t having good communications with friends and family because they are always doing something else on their phone or computer whenever they are talking. I know not everyone is like that…but I see so many people do this and it really makes me sad.

We are taking for granted some of the most important parts of human life! Remember to take time to do something for yourself, to educate yourself a little more, to make yourself happy, to make someone else happy, to cherish those around you that you love! You never know when it’s their last day or yours.

Sorry this post was all over the place. I just have a lot on my mind. :p Obviously.

I think I’m going to find something good to read and relax for now. Have a wonderful weekend everyone! Please take care!

Best Wishes,

8/6/2014 Big Sister Blues and Daily Challenge

6 Aug

Today my baby sister starts as a junior in high school! As much as I’ve been ignoring it and denying it, it’s happening. Now I’m probably a little more emotional about this than some sisters…but I had a big hand in helping raise her. 

I am very proud of her and I find myself worried more now than when she was little. Then she needed me so much more, asked for my help, and I had more control of her situation. Now I have to watch as she makes her own choices and just be there for her to offer advice, a shoulder, or an ear. I know it’s been hard on her with me moving across the country, but I’m proud at the young lady I’ve been watching her grow into from afar. 

Others in my family start school today as well! So I wish them the best of luck. 😉 Maybe if I give them a survival kit for high school or some little tidbits that helped me get through, it will give me some peace of mind. I think I’m going to get on that and see what I can do!

Today’s Challenge is to do one or more of the following ( some will be similar to my original challenge post):

  1. Smile! Smile for yourself, smile for others! Smiling is contagious and can make such a difference in your day and someone else’s. 
  2. Take the time to appreciate someone in your life today. There is at LEAST one person who you probably don’t SHOW your appreciation enough to. Go out of your way a bit to let them know how much they mean to you and how grateful you are for all that they do for you. 🙂
  3. Do something for a stranger today, whether it’s letting them go first at a 4 way stop, letting someone cross the street, a smile, a wave, or something more. Those small acts of kindness can do more than you know!
  4. Pamper yourself a bit, do your nails, take a bath, make some tea, eat some chocolate. Just indulge yourself a little bit and be proud you’ve made it another day! I’m sure proud of you, so keep up the good work!
  5. Tell someone you love them and mean it…or show them you love them. There are lots of ways to do this. You know the person best so you know whether it’s a hug, a post it note, or a favorite lunch that will do the trick. Often we use this word too much or not enough and it’s thrown around. But the people we love…family, friends, and significant others, need to be reminded they are loved. It’s not always just about the words either, so gage the situation and judge for yourself what that person needs today. 😉

As always if you liked this please SHARE it! Also let me know if you did this challenge or another challenge and how it worked for you.

May you all have a wonderful day.

Love,

Ch. 8 The Dress (Princess Felicity Grace)

11 Jul

Felicity thought she saw a certain look in his eye before he turned to leave but left it to think twas only her wild imagination running free. She got up from her throne like chair and rang her silver bell. Shortly after hearing the bell, her ladies in waiting came scrambling in. She had several dresses to choose from and she looked over each one carefully. The princess wanted to sort of go with the theme of the Moonlit Festival, so the colors had to be just right.
The first dress laid out was of burgundy red with gold trimmings around the edges. She waved her hand away to dismiss it. It was not right for tonight, perhaps a dinner or something, but not for the Moonlit Festival. She had to be stunning tonight. Though she couldn’t quite admit it yet, the princess wanted to impress her new knight in shining armor, Alejandro.
The second dress was a long white gown with simple lacing. Dismissed. Another gown of pure silver laid out in front of her. She paused and looked at the dress carefully. “Set it aside for now, I really like this one,” the princess demanded and then had them proceed.  The next dress was of deep blue with fancy gold embroidery. Just like the stars and the night sky. Just like the silver one it was breathtakingly beautiful. She sent the rest of the dresses away and sat down so she could carefully look at both dresses.
“Perhaps it would help if you tried it on m’lady,” one of her closest ladies suggested kindly. Felicity nodded and stood up as they scrambled around her to put on the dresses. It didn’t take long for her to know which one was right. They put the dress on her and finished her hair and make up to match.

Ch 7. A Wicked Gleam (PFG)

11 Jul

After some silence that felt less awkward then it should have, Felicity blushed and stood up facing him. “Thank you very much sir, I didn’t know I had company,” she spoke to him as she curtsied politely. He chuckled to himself inside his head and apologized for not making his presence known sooner. “It was my pleasure though m’lady. It really was gorgeous singing. If you have some time, I would like to go over some security procedures for tonight’s festival. Nothing too elaborate, I just want to assure you that you will be more protected then you have been as of late and tonight should go without incident,” he said kindly.
Felicity nodded and took a seat in a chair near her window. She really looked the part of a queen, which she would no doubt be some day. She waved her hand to let him know to continue. Usually this would be rather boring for our beloved princess, but since Alejandro was doing the talking, there was nothing boring about it. She nodded doing her best to listen carefully.
Alejandro noticed something in her eye and brought his procedures to a close. “I’m sorry for having to go over the boring stuff princess. We are done with that now. I will leave now so you can get ready for the Moonlit Festival…if I may be so bold to ask…is anyone accompanying you tonight?” he asked sounding amused at his own thoughts.
Felicity blushed and shook her head. “Well not in any way that’s too important. My father has me meeting another prince tonight. We use to play together when we were little. He was rather boring though. I hope he’s at least improved at conversation, otherwise I may end up falling asleep tonight.” She laughed softly.
“I see…”Alejandro said and bowed before turning away with a wicked gleam in his eye.

Princess Felicity Grace Ch.5: Alejandro’s Room

1 May

The young servant girl hid her face as she was blushing and gestured for Alejandro to follow her. Alejandro was quiet and very observant, making mental notes on things in the castle, the servants, and anything suspicious.  After meeting several of the important servants, head chef, head maid, and people like that, he was showed to his room that was next door to Princess Felicity’s. He walked in as the maids and butlers had just finished cleaning and setting his things down for him. He grunted a short dismissal and they left him.

He looked over the room carefully and mumbled something to himself in Spanish. He took off his beloved Katana and set it down beside the bed.

“I still don’t know why I decided to come here,” he said aloud to himself. He laughed quietly and shook his head. Honestly boredom had led him here. He may look 21 years old, but he had about 500 years to him. Clearly he was no ordinary human being. He heard the King’s request for a protector for his oldest child and Alejandro had no idea why, but he felt drawn to come and ended up taking the job. He sighed and lay down on his new bed staring up at the ceiling. Just as he was starting to fall asleep, though he didn’t need much sleep, he heard a soft sound coming from close by followed by a beautifully angelic voice singing an old song filled with loneliness and sorrow, but also a feeling of hope. He sat up and realized it was coming from the princess’s room. He wondered which of her servants was doing that for her. It was so beautiful it had even mesmerized him. He decided that he wanted to take a peek.

The Chance I Took

28 Apr

Dinner lit by candle light

I think We finally got this right

Holding tight to what I know

Always afraid of letting go

Meeting you I took a chance

Your look on life “I hope you dance.”

Opening my eyes I find new things to see

Maybe this isn’t about only me

A greater purpose I do not yet know

But maybe together we’ll discover and show
