All Talk No Do

As you may have realized by now, I am exactly what the title says 'All Talk No Do'. Basically, I have big ideas that never seem to be motivated into action.

I started this blog with the idea to blog for 150 days about all my "Down Days" ... and as you can see, that hasn't quite happened. Heck! I don't even know when 150 days ends...or ended.
I recently posted a blog post about going offline for 17 days. That goal lasted about 17 hours. Although, to be fair, I did learn something in those 17 hours. This post has since been reverted to a draft.

So, here's my new plan. Okay, yes, I haven't had the best track records with plans and ideas but hear me out. I'm giving myself from now till the first week of January 2016 to make amends with 2015. That entails forgiving those that have angered or upset me and likewise apologizing to those that I have wronged. I want 2016 to be a BIG year. What better way to start it off than with a clean slate? I guess my new idea is quite selfish; forgiving and apologizing to make my new year better.

Well, for now, it's just a plan. Lets see if it materializes into anything.

This will probably be my last post before Christmas. I would like to wish all those who celebrate the Merriest of Christmases and to those that don't celebrate, happy Friday and enjoy the holidays.

Till next time-

Eureka!

It's 04:09 am on my side of the world at the moment and I kid you not, I've been awake since about 02:30. It's amazing to discover where one's mind is taken to at ungodly hours of the day, such as now.
Far off in the distance I hear cars or maybe trucks hauling off to perform the day's jobs. More closely, I can hear the high-pitched squeaks of one bird and the long melodious voice of another.

I think I answered my question from yesterday. I know I've made a mistake when I spend two hours of my life, in the earliest hours of the morning,  thinking about it.
But, I've got a solution!

Till next time (which very well might be at some ungodly hour tomorrow morning)-

I need some advice

This one's short & sweet.

How do you know when you've made a mistake?

... maybe it's when you write that.

A fleeting Moment

I stumbled across a statistic page on Blogger a couple of days ago. I was excited to find that someone in Poland, the Ukraine and  the U.S.A reads what I write. So to all of you Halo, Здравствуйте and hello. I really hope the Ukrainian one is correct. I know Google translate isn't the most accurate of translating services, but I'm going to trust it on this one. But, in the event that I have just sweared at you and your family; I'm sorry.

I'm always going on and on and on about doing things one doesn't want to do, with awareness that I mean this within safe and reasonable boundaries. Anyways, yesterday, my uncle called me up and asked me if I wanted to go for waffles. Um, YES! What kind of person says no to waffles? So, off we went to a busy shopping center, at the busiest time of the year and with everyone on holiday now, I was bound to 'bump' into someone from school or encounter swarms of teenagers. Now, you must know something about myself: I don't dress-up and put make-up on for most occasions-going for waffles definitely isn't one of them. Which brings me back to my statement of doing things or going places which you do not want to do or go to. I didn't want to go to the busy mall- because that meant plastering myself with make-up, but the idea of warm waffles with cream was too tempting.

Writing that second last sentence makes me realize something... I'm not as confident as I thought I was, and I think I have anxiety when it comes to walking among people, as myself- with out make-up on. Now's a good time to mention that I have acne too.

My uncle treated me to a waffle with two mountains of cream drizzled in chocolate and maple syrup sauce. It was spectacular! Afterwards, with a happy tummy, we walked around the large, marble-tiled mall. 

I was scanning the crowd for potential acquaintances from whom I could hide from when my eye landed on a girl, about my age, with dip-dyed ombre hair, white long pants and a gray top. Immediately it clicked. I knew this girl. She looked at me and down again to the floor and immediately back up when she realized she knew me too. She smiled a full smile at me and I the same to her.

L (for all purposes on anonymity) and I were friends in third grade, before she moved away. We hadn't spoken since, but in terms of appearance, we still have distinct features which identify us...as,well us.  We both gave each other a knowing smile and walked off in the opposite direction, having spoken no words, but communicating all that needed to be said through a smile.

Maybe, had I put make-up on and hidden my self, L would have looked down and never looked back up. Had I put make-up on maybe I wouldn't have connected with a long lost friend-even if it was for just a moment.

And that ladies and gentleman is why you should always go out or do something you don't want to do; something great could come of it.

Let me know of an instant when you went out of your comfort zone and what came of it.

Till next time-
Steph

Making Mistakes

I am that person that blabbers off the most relevant Oscar Wilde quote or motivational motto to anyone willing to listen ( and I do mean ANYONE) but with the help of quote pages on Instagram and Twitter, which boast elaborate quotes and complicated anecdotes to life, I was quite shocked to scroll down and find one short and simple line: It's okay to make mistakes.

Revolutionary right? Well, in the chaos of these ornate quotes on social networking sites-forgetting the simple liners like the above- left me flabbergasted to read this uncomplicated string of words. 

Yes! Go out and follow that WILD dream, overcome fears and build lasting friendships but don't forget something as simple as "It's okay to make mistakes".

Appropriately, here's a quote (except this time it's from Albert Einstein instead Oscar Wilde)
"Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new"

Till next time-
