Useful Advice

Thursday, September 5: Pass on some useful advice or information you learned and always remembered.

I feel like this topic is easy and hard at the same time.  There is a lot of useful advice out there and most of it comes down to common sense which is hard to find some times.  As I have got a little older...soon to be 30! I have realized that what people think about you matters less and less.  For instance when I was younger I was always shy and worried about what people were thinking when they met me and how I looked, and now I don't really care all that much.

I do what is good for me and others but if someone doesn't like it or it isn't the cool thing to wear or do I just don't really care lol.  I have seen from my mom that the older you get the more you don't care, life turns into trying to have as much fun as possible and not letting anything get in the way of that especially being worried about petty things like if your makeup and hair and outfit is perfect.  Heck I think the older we get the less we care the more fun it looks like people are having.
I just wish I had known this little bit of advice sooner, when I was young and worried and stressed.
 Here's to wearing a silly home made facinator on your head and just not caring!

Tuesday, Sept. 3: Describe where or what you come from. The people, the places, and/or the factors that make up who you are.
Wednesday, September 4: If you could take three months off from your current life and do anything in the world, what would you do? (bonus points for fun photos from Pinterest, but don't forget to cite the source!)
Thursday, September 5: Pass on some useful advice or information you learned and always remembered.
Friday, September 6: A story about a time you were very afraid.
Monday, September 9: Take this short personality test and respond to your results. (at the end, find the detailed profile of your personality account - click "click to view" under "You" and "self awareness and personal growth." You can even google your type and find more info on it!)
Tuesday, September 10: Describe a distinct moment when your life took a turn.
Wednesday, September 11: Share links to your favorite online shops, preferably with a few photos of your favorite items in each shop.
Thursday, September 12: Discuss ways that blogging or social media has changed you.
Friday, September 13: A self portrait
Monday, September 16: Write a public love letter to someone in your life. (It doesn't necessarily need to be romantic.)
Tuesday, September 17: A memory you would love to relive.
Wednesday, September 18: Only photos
Thursday, September 19: Creative writing day: write a (very short) fictional story that starts with this sentence: "To say I was dreading the dinner party would be the understatement of the century."
The story does not necessarily need to have a conclusion - you can leave your readers wishing for more!
Friday, September 20: React to this term: comfort.
Monday, September 23: A "life lately" post. What you're up to, how you're feeling, how you're doing on your goals, etc. Bonus points for great photos!
Tuesday, September 24: Review a book, place, or product.
Wednesday, September 25: Write about a time you screwed up - a mistake you made.
Thursday, September 26: Go to a coffee shop. Order a favorite drink. Write about what makes you happy and what makes you sad. Or write about anything you'd like! Bonus points for including a photo from the coffee shop. (I recommend downloading Ommwriter and bringing headphones along!) *if you can't make it to a coffee shop, at least leave your usual space and write someplace new.
Friday, September 27: An anonymous letter to your Facebook friends. Be as snarky as you'd like. (but don't include people's real names.)
Monday, September 30: Share a photo of something old. Maybe something that has personal history for you, that was passed down to you, and that has special meaning to you. Tell us about it and why it's special.

Growing older isn't as fun as being young, is it. When we look back, the fun times stand out much more than the times spent worrying.

Whether you're young or older you have much more fun when you're not looking around to see what everyone else is doing and thinking. I say "Who Cares". A big smile and laughter wins over a Chanel handbag any day.

I think doing what you enjoy, whether it's cool or not, is a great way to live! :)
