I am sure I am not the only one who looks at celebrities and thinks… they must have really good gene’s to be their age and look as phenomenal as they do… Then again, when I go to gym there are some 50 year old women who put me to shame, because they work their backsides off to look like that. Is it worth it? I don’t know if you can argue that fitness and good health are not worth the effort it takes, but if you want to, because you’re looking for more excuses for yourself then please, by all means.. go right ahead. I do it from time to time when I know I’ve been lazy and do not want to admit it to myself. I am sure it was a thyroid thing and then a time thing and then hormonal something or other…
Things don’t happen overnight and they don’t happen unless we make them happen; I am taking some of my own advice today. So for our Wednesday wake-up call just remember it takes constant motivation and persistence to get what we want out of life. It’s not about having a flawless figure or being able to fit in to a size 8… it’s about letting go all the excuses that are a lot easier to make than actually going after what we want. You could fail… but hey, you could also succeed.
I have been saying this since I saw the first crazy person who dared to wear tights as pants… IT DOESN’T WORK! And leggings are just thicker tights so please DO NOT wear them as pants either. All you do is make your thighs look ginormous and, well, you inevitably end up showing off a camel-toe. Trust me when I say no one wants to see that. This is how NOT to wear tights/leggings:
If you want to wear leggings or tights make sure that whatever you wear over them is long enough to cover all the other stuff properly. Like so:
Otherwise, why not opt for a lovely pair of jeggings or if it is not too far fetched a pair of actual pants that can be worn as… DING DING.. PANTS! I know I have many pet peeves so I will just add this to the ever-growing list… I’m sure that there will always be people who will wear tights as pants or even leggings as pants and all I can is: You are being judged for it. I have done my part by trying to warn people.
I’m going to be honest; I watched Mean Girls again the other day and I absolutely love it. I think the best part about it is how we – ladies – all love to play the victim like we’ve never ever done or said anything bitchy about someone else behind their back. We have all be the villain of the piece. Am I saying it’s a good thing? NO! It’s just one of those unavoidable, unnecessary things in life that we do. We love to say: Men don’t listen! And well, generally it’s not a strong quality that the men of this world possess, but man, oh man do we love to talk s*** about one another. The hilarious thing is that some girls make it incredibly easy to be bitchy about them just by being themselves. You don’t have to try to think of an insult, because they are a walking, talking insult to themselves. Is that harsh? Well, they should work on being more introspective and less defensive, because no one is perfect and we all make mistakes in life. Also, even though it hurts to hear what people say about you it doesn’t hurt to acknowledge it and if the same thing is said over and over and you were self-aware you might actually try to better yourself. My best are those girls who say: I don’t get along well with girls, because they’re so bitchy. Erm, perhaps you’re the bitch or you just love the attention you get from guys? It’s fine if you fall into either of those categories, but don’t blame other girls for being bitchy then.
I can be a bitch, but I have really amazing girlfriends who I would do anything for and there is no male substitute for your gal pals. Sure, life would be easier if people just said what they thought to your face, but us girls are super sensitive and we tend to take things the wrong way. I’m sorry to say it does not end in high-school, but the best part about growing up is that you can choose who you want to have in your life. So choose to be surrounded by great people and rather don’t bother too much with those people who take everything personally and make everything about them
Can I just say… GUILTY! As per normal just before I am about to celebrate another year of being around I have these crazy panic attacks about how I haven’t achieved anything; how my life is on the track to no where and how I gave up on my dreams or never really fought hard enough for them. Then I start to think back about how I had all the opportunities, but instead I found all the excuses possible to not pursue them. I start comparing myself to people who I think have followed their dreams and then it’s game over! Hello pity-party…
A pity party every now and again is necessary in order to realise that what you do have is far more important than what you don’t have… I think the point is that if you become too focused on what you do not have and what you want you don’t always appreciate what you have right now. Sure, it’s important to dream and reach for the stars, but that does not mean that what you have right now isn’t good enough.
This is what I want everyone to think about when they think about me It might not be unique, but it works! I would like to think that I spice things up a bit and although I tend to hyperboloise EVERYTHING - see what I did there – I hope it entertains people more than anything… Even if I am the one who looks like a bit of a jack-ass it’s in the name of fun and every now and again that’s ok. I’m learning to laugh at myself and not to take things too personally. I know that is never an easy thing to do, but it can be very satisfying to know that sometimes people are just trying to see how far they can push you… that includes my father who after he reads this will probably feel the need to poke the bear a little. It’s important to not take life too seriously and to enjoy the little things instead of getting caught up with issues that are out of your control and cause unnecessary stress.
I’m sure many of us often look at other people and see what they have and take note of what is missing from our lives and we assume that they’re happy, because they have more or because they have something we want. I am definitely guilty of this and I believe the word I am looking for is envious. I often remind myself of all my blessings, because, although I want more I know that it is also important to be content with life as it is now, otherwise you tend to become bitter when you start comparing yourself to people around you.
It is very easy to compare yourself to everyone else, but that is definitely not healthy. Instead of focusing on what you don’t have focus on what you do have Also, the list is a lot longer than you think it is and the more you remind yourself about all those little things the sooner you will realise how rich your life really is. I am not saying that you shouldn’t want more or work to achieve goals; I am saying that you need to be happy every step of the way.
As soon as people stop appreciating the things you do for them it is time to back away. There is nothing worse than someone who is ungrateful and who expects you to continue going out of your way for them or for anyone else on their behalf. There are some things that you have to do and then there are some things that you only do to be nice and keep the peace, but if you’re not appreciated then why bother? It could be the smallest thing, such as expecting someone to open the door for you all the time, but you never say thank you. Could you really blame the person if they stop opening the door for you? No matter who it is that is doing something for you there is no reason why you cannot show some gratitude
