March Writing Challenge- Day 28: Do You Have A Morning Ritual?

To be honest with you, I am not a morning person at all. I get up around 6:45 now to get ready for work. The commute is very short because I work from home. Before I log on around 7:40, I usually get a little cleaning done, like dishes. I hate dishes in the sink. And I do the laundry. Anything else can wait until during my breaks or after my shift.

Some mornings I’ll eat an early breakfast or I’ll wait for late morning. I got to have my coffee. It’s a must. A tall mug of coffee, that is.

On days I am off, I plan to do more in the morning if I can shake the tiredness and/or the fact that morning isn’t my thing. After cooking breakfast and grabbing my mug, I normally check emails, read blog posts and other forms of reading, because you know reading is fundamental. 😁

I also try to get some meditation and music in if I can before I start my day, but that only seems to happened on days off.

I don’t do the same thing every morning unless it’s a work day. After housework, I would brainstorm on what I want to write and blog about. Someday, I just may be able to get a whole lot done in the mornings and not wait to the afternoon to accomplish that.

What is your morning routine?

March Writing Challenge- Day 27: Would You Rather Have A Live-In Massage Therapist, Or A Live-In Chef?

I would rather have a live-in chef than a live-in massage therapist because I love to eat and don’t want to have someone touching me. Then again, I hope to really trust the chef and not have him/her mad at me so I won’t get get poisoned.

In another world, I might have a female live-in chef and a male live-in massage therapist. I hope we would to get along since we’re to live together. (Wiggles eyebrows.)

So, would you rather have a live-in chef or live-in massage therapist.

March Writing Challenge- Day 26: Would You Consider Yourself An Introvert, Extrovert, Or Ambivert?

Just in case you might not know already, I consider myself an introvert. Yes, I know, shocking isn’t it. 😀

I have been an introvert my entire life. I love being by myself and get overwhelmed being around so many people, unless they are people I can connect with. At one point I thought maybe I was ambivert, then when I checked my surroundings, I had noticed it was people who are authentic and on the same level as me.

So, I believe—I am sure that I am just an introvert. Sometimes, I get awkward when I first meet them. Then, when I get to know them, then I can decide whether this person is someone I can be around or not. And if they choose not to be around me, then that’s okay too.

There was a time (or two) I was sitting at home in my own little world, and the person I was living with went to a family cookout that was across the street. One of their relatives walked over to ask me why didn’t I come over and kept trying to convince me I would have a good time. And every time I would tell them that I was okay and wanted to be by myself. Whether they thought it was weird of not, was their problem, but the person I was living with did bring me over a plate a food over. And kept saying how everyone wanted me to come over.

I always felt content being in my company, and I now choose wisely who I let into my space. I don’t like not being myself around people. And if I feel like I have to be anything else, then I can’t be around them.

I don’t care to stand in front of people to talk. I rather write it down and let them read it. I don’t like when people try to put me under a microscope to see what is wrong me. I am just like this. I can go out and be around people even though I don’t like crowds, but it doesn’t bother me too much. But, I don’t want to hang out with a group if I don’t have to, so I don’t see how these Real Housewives of these cities do it.

Are you an introvert, extrovert, or ambivert?

March Writing Challenge- Day 25: Where And When Do You Get Your Best Ideas?

I don’t know when I would get my ideas unless you count “at the strangest times.”

I normally get them, for writing, listening to music while sitting on couch after work or days I’m not working while letting the TV watch me. I had always said there was something therapeutic about music and the way it makes me feel. I can sometimes feel the creative juices flowing as I feel this jolt of energy coursing through me. Or when I’m watching a movie trailer or a movie itself.

Oftentimes, crystals and stones help center me and helps with the spiritual aspects of things. But, there are times I can be doing nothing at all and a scene or idea of sorts would pop up in my mind.

I’m sure this may happen to others, but I tried to have something to write those ideas down because they can pop up one minute and disappear the next.

When and where do you get your best ideas?

March Writing Challenge- Day 20: What’s One Mistake You Keep Repeating (And Repeating)?


I guarantee there are patterns in your life. Sometimes they are NOT good and that pattern must be broken. Learn from your mistakes so you do NOT repeat them again and again. #inspirationalquotes #lettinggo #letgo #moveon #moveforward #badassery #motivationalquotes #changeyourlife

The one mistake I keep repeating over and over is believing in what someone say, especially when it comes from a narcissist. I always have a problem in giving people more chances than they should, and thinking they will change. Sometimes, the signs can appear early after meeting them, and I also feel stupid trying to see the good in people. And then 9 times out of ten, they prove me wrong.

I have to learn to ignore the signs and stop trying to see the good in people who are clearly showing their true colors. Their mask slipping down their face like egg yolk. Or maybe, it’s the egg on my face not believing the truth in the first place.

I have learned, and still learning not to make those mistakes again. Though there are good people, it’s still best to have a spirit of discernment when it comes to the others to choose wisely.

What one mistake do you keep repeating?
