29 Days to 30; Changes

What has changed about me in the past 2 years? That’s what this post is about today. I sometimes used to think my sister was faking her eyesight or lack thereof when she spoke about failing to see someone that was just a few meters away from her. She could recognize it was a person but who it was she could never tell. 2 years ago #bang, genetic and karma bit me in the behind. It feels like it just happened. I didn’t see it coming. It’s like I could see perfectly today, then the next day I couldn’t, just like that.

I however only got glasses this year and now I am singing ‘I can see clearly now…’. But funny thing is even though my eyesight had become bad it isn’t that which got me to the optician but the migraines. If the migraines had not intensified, I am not sure if 2 years was as long as I would have stayed without bothering to get checked out. It is important to take care of yourself and your body, it’s the only place you will live in for your whole life.

I had literally become a druggy. The last 5weeks before getting glasses I felt like i was dying. I was literally surviving on pain killer. I’d take a dose every 4 hours but the migraines would not go away. I couldn’t actually remember what it felt like to be normal and not constantly feel pain. It really made me appreciate good health, something that shouldn’t be taken for granted. And people should stop assuming that a headache and migraine are the same thing; stop telling people to drink more water. It’s not about the water, it goes deeper than that.

The past 2 years have also changed how I see things (not physically). I now can pin point what makes me happy and do the most of that. Quiet often people know what they do not like or what pisses them off but we focus on the negative so much that we do not take time to determine what it is that makes us happy; flip the coin and focus on the positive. My last 2 birthdays have been celebrated doing something I am passionate about. I have decided to share my cake and birthday with little boys and girls that may never get the chance to celebrate birthdays the way I was blessed enough to growing up. The past 2 birthdays have been some of the greatest memories.

So much can change in 2 years, but even as people grow apart, seasons change; some things also remain constant. What has remained constant in your life?

28 days to 30; What I wear to bed

So every time I decide to sleep naked I cannot help but remember that story of a fire that broke out at a house in the night and the occupants had to run out naked. #laughs.

It reminds me of 1 time in Maine when the fire alarm went off around 3am and we all had to leave the building. It was such a cold day outside, but because the heating system inside was really warm all I had on was a t-shirt. Now imagine waking up from a deep sleep at 3am to a fire alarm. All I managed to grab was my dressing gown and wore my morning sleepers. People wear the weirdest things to bed though, no one was laughing at anyone because we all looked some type of way.

What do you wear to bed? And why?

30 Days to 30; Weird things I do when I am alone #day30

The countdown continues. But just that now it goes a notch higher. With 30days to go, I am so ready for everything that the 30s have to offer. Many people wonder why May4 is such a big deal, and also wonder why I am excited to age. Well, you will soon find out. But bottom line, celebrate it or not, you are getting older.

I generally am considered weird by most of my friends and family, so I guess I do more weird things in public then even more in private. I talk to myself often #weird. I enjoy my own conversations and I tend to answer a lot of my own questions. When I drive alone the conversations get deeper, and I often continue with these conversations when I get out to open the gate. I am so sure those that hear me think I actually have someone else in the car. My partner thinks out loud and talks to himself often. I always laugh at him but he doesn’t know that I talk to myself when alone too. #laughs. Here are a few of the reasons why I talk to myself, you will understand after this.

I turn 30 in 30 days, join and enjoy the countdown.

Besides talking to myself, I also scratch my bum and I take imaginary alcoholic shots 😆.
