Writing Challenge (Day 24) Something I Miss 

Oftentimes when I sit back and ponder on life and how far I come, I think about the things that I missed. Yes, some may call it daydreaming since I do that a lot lately, more than ever, yet I can’t help but dwell on what I missed or missed out on in life.

Today’s challenge allows me to do just that. So today, I want to share with you all the things I miss.

First off, I missed my dad. For a long time before his passing, he fought to save his family. My siblings and I was taken away and placed in the CPS (Child Protective Services). Not trying to get into the details, but all I could remembered was the promises he made on getting his family back, to be a  better man, but to fight harder to do right. I was twelve and I kept those promises and hope alive, praying that one day our family will reunite.

Although my dad kept his promises and became a better man, it was too late. He died at the age of 39, November 17, 2003.

I missed his smiles, laughter, and dry jokes. He was able to watched me walked across the stage at my high school graduation. I… I’m going to get off this for a moment. You can read a related post here.

I don’t tend to miss objects I had or an event. They’re always replaceable or a redo. I do missed times being spent with someone or alone. Most times when you missed a person that arrived into your life whether in a physical body or online, it can be an emotional thing. But, you learned to get through it the way you know how. It takes me awhile, depends on the type of relationship I had with the person.

I also miss how times used to be, so carefree and vivacious. I miss courtship, no one seem to do that anymore. Most of all, I miss life before social media.

What do you missed? How were you able to get through it, if you have?

Writing Challenge (Day 23) Family  

First off i would like to say Happy Thanksgiving! I hope yours are going well. Thanksgiving is a day that brings people together, reuniting with love ones you haven’t seen in a while. Yet, my Thanksgiving will consist of me being home cooking and staying home. My daughter and I will be alone, for the remainder of the day, but it is fine. Our families aren’t that close and I really don’t remember the last time I sat at a family member’s table.

Yet, on this day, this challenge wants me to talk about a family member I dislike. It’s kind of hard doing so, even though I have a few-with reasons, I won’t get into it today for it is a holiday of giving thanks. No family member I know of read my blog posts so even if I would, they wouldn’t know what I’ve said.

Although, I am thankful. I’m thankful for waking up to another blessed day, seeing my daughter’s face. Thankful for you all. I do have my very small immediate family that I’m hoping to see, but it may be after Thanksgiving.

So, no matter what, love your love ones and come together in unity. I’m praying that mines will someday. Time is precious. I love you all.

Writing Challenge (Day 22) Morning Routine 

Good morning! My morning routine is pretty much the same just about every day. I’ll wake up every weekday morning before the alarm clock goes off to get my daughter up around 4:30. Every morning, never stop, that time is my main time which causes me to stare up at the ceiling for what seems like an eternity.

I’ll say a few positive affirmations and then in attempts to fall back to sleep. Most times when I do, the alarm clock will go right off. My daughter does not like getting up to go to school, what child does. It’s a fighting experience, tug-o-war game as I tried with all my might to get her out of bed.

Since I do mostly everything from home, after placing my daughter and getting a kiss from her, I’ll get straight to work on my tablet- writing and blogging. Meditating and reading.

That pretty much sums it up. My mundane world for this writing challenge. Have a wonderful day!

Writing Challenge (Day 21) Zodiac Sign- Does Mines Describes Me 

You guess it right- Aries. Am I proud about it? Let’s find out:

My zodiac sign is something that I have followed for years and still do. As I stated before, I’m interested in the planets and their alignments.

I’m later than I’m used to for posting today, since I’m under the weather. Sore throat, aching body and all. I want it to be over with, but all the lemon and honey tea in the world won’t make it go away fast enough.

Anyway, back to the subject at hand, my zodiac sign. First off, this daily challenges are getting more and more personal, but I chose to do it. It’s no big deal. Excuse me though, I’m a bit light-headed.

Aries. I noticed that when I tell most people my sign, they’re like, “oh boy!” They figured we Arians are bull-headed, can’t tell us nothing, short-tempered, and independent. That much is true.

But, does my sign describes me? Well, the strengths of an Aries are:

  • Independent
  • Generous
  • Optimistic
  • Courageous

Our weakness are:

  • Moodiness
  • Short-tempered
  • Self-involved
  • Impatient
  • Impulsive

I’m not that optimistic and I’m Not self-involved or impulsive.

Researching my sign online here, the site stated that Aries likes to be the center of attention. I hate being the center of attention. I like fading in the background, like, you wouldn’t know I’m even there. And in fact, I’m quiet. It said that Aries are loud, very talkative. I don’t know many who are.

We are listed as being spoiled, can’t get along with anyone. Neither qualities described me.

 To be short, I look out for friends, I may go days without talking to them, but will check on them from the background. I don’t get childish when I don’t get my way, yet I am moody at times. I am willing to take a gamble, follow dreams and goals. Yet, I will start any and everything but won’t finish them or have trouble finishing. I have a low tolerance for boredom and it is sometimes hard to find excitement in something if it doesn’t hold my attention.

So, there you have it, an Aries in a nutshell- the condensed version. Sometimes a person can judge another by their zodiac sign, race, or religion and thinks that how that person is without getting to know them for them. I am happy of me, not proud of a zodiac sign cause most times, it doesn’t describe everyone associated with that sign.

Even though, reading the site above, please don’t go by just that. I’m not perfect but I’m not a bad person either.

What are you thoughts? Are you an Aries? Or know one?
