I can’t believe that I’m going and writing my Fortieth Reason. So I thought about it, like you know, it has to be a super special reason for number 40. And decided that the fact I’m writing reason 40 is my reason 40.
I used to constantly quote the saying Due to a technical fault the light at the end of the tunnel has been switched off.
I’m going to be away and not sure if I’ll have access or not. I really want to get to Fifty though…..
Now is probably the best time for me to think of and post a reason. Been thinking about all I have here that I can use, and ‘wondering’ in a purely scientific sense what it would do to me if I would take it all. Continue reading “Thirty Seven: The light of understanding”
I didn’t have a reason. Then I saw this quote. I’m going to just attach the link as I’m sure the image is copyrighted.
I was walking down the road thinking about reasons. Or rather about how nothing is worth it, how it’s not worth trying, how the world however beautiful it is can’t be reason enough, how it doesn’t make a difference that it’s so gorgeous – I just don’t care, how even though it should be moving it isn’t, how it can’t make me smile. And then about reasons, Continue reading “Thirty Four: No reasons to live”
Do you know when something happens, something really coincidental that makes you feel like ‘Hey, maybe there’s something out there bigger than you, maybe you are cared about’ or ‘Wow’.
Something that happened to me recently. Continue reading “Thirty Three: Coincidences that aren’t”
Hi there! Once again, I’m filling in…JacsMom here. Reason 33 to live is bubble baths. There’s nothing better when you’ve had a good day or a bad day. The warm water soothes your muscles and the scent you’ve chosen wafts up and relaxes you. I like to light some candles and put on some music. Sometimes I almost fall asleep! Kinda makes me feel like a kid again too, and brings back some wonderful memories of my childhood. It’s just a very simple thing, but sometimes those are the kinds of things that keep us going….
I am filling in for Eliza today….hope I can live up to her standards! 🙂 I love the beach. The waves rolling in peacefully to the shore, time after time since the world began and knowing they will continue through all of eternity. The sun feeling warm on my face. Walking barefoot through the sand and feeling the sensations. Finding shells and feeling calm. Looking skyward and seeing the fluffy clouds like big fields of cotton and listening to the seagulls calling. A gentle breeze softly caressing my face. Just completely letting go and the surrendering of any negative thoughts. What a great place to visit when you need a break…..
Won’t be posting for the next few days. Will miss this focusing. Will try think of reasons (that I’ll probably forget when I want to write them 😉 ) anyways, at least write them up in my head if nowhere else.
There are some people in the world who try to make other people smile and laugh for no ulterior motive. Just because they want them to smile. If you’re reading this and think I mean you – I certainly do! I’m in awe of these people and can learn a lot from them. Continue reading “Thirty Two: People who make me smile”
Way too tired to write this post now (it’s almost 1am here), so I hope I actually talk sense.
Friends. I’m going to be seeing at least one friend that I haven’t seen in a few months soon (in a couple of weeks). Hopefully more than just one. I’m grateful for my friends.
My title says it all, or so I think.
I’m up to reason thirty. Been thinking way too negatively the past few hours. I’m saying that way too often for my liking. I did something difficult for me to do today, and nothing came of it, so both the trying to do it, and the nothing coming of it, threw me. Continue reading “Thirty: I’m up to reason thirty………….”
I can’t think of a suitable title for this reason.
I was looking up reasons and came across this blog post, to me, that someone could take the time to write such a post to someone else, that someone could be this good, is in and of itself a reason Continue reading “Twenty Nine: Posts”
