Hi guys! How was your holiday? I’m sure the thought of heading back to work today sounds grueling huh? Just try to remind yourself, only three more days until the weekend =)
When I went to write today’s post, I wasn’t exactly sure what to write about; a new recipe? No; a new workout? No; random thoughts? No.
After looking back at my posts from last week, I figured I’d do another week of Truthful Tuesday. I’m not sure if this will be an ongoing occurrence, but for now, I’m rolling with it.
- I like to believe I am a very positive woman, but I do have days filled with negativity, and unhappiness. Take yesterday for instance; I felt uneasy and unpleasant with myself. Knowing there’s only a month and half until I revisit my OBGYN brought scared feelings to the surface. What if I’m told more horrible news, what if all the hard work I’ve been putting in doesn’t show in blood results? But you know if there’s one suggestion I can give you during these times it would be, lean on a supportive person you love. If you don’t have someone, treat yourself… your beautiful & deserve it.
- I hate spending money. I’m not even sure if the word hate describes it best, maybe I should say I get scared. Sounds crazy right? It’s true though. I don’t mind spending here and there but that’s about it. I’m very cautious with our money, and feel it’s very important to put $$$ into our savings account whenever possible. With my husband’s job, civilian contractor, his job isn’t always guaranteed. Yes he may sign a contract, but if the company he works for needs to cut people, anyone can be released at any given time. Being that were in a complete different country, it can be quite nerve-racking.
- I have one major fear in life. That fear is being kidnapped. Sure spiders freak me out, and being attacked by a shark is on the list, but nothing compares to my fear of kidnapping. Even as a young child, I would have nightmares of “bad guys” breaking into our home, killing my family & taking me with. Obviously today those dreams don’t exist, but the fear is still there. Surprisingly though, living in Kuwait has helped. I feel safer than I have in a while, which is strange because I was brought up in a nice neighborhood.Maybe it has to do with the fact that many people out here worship Americans, or maybe it’s because the area we live in doesn’t have much crime. Whatever the case may be, it’s nice to have that feeling.
But you know what… just like myself, and everyone who has fears and worries, nothing will hold me back from living a life filled with happiness, joy, and laughter. Sure some days will be better than others, but that’s the wonderful thing about life; you get knocked down, but you have the choice of getting up again. Take advantage of the wonderful gifts and people God has blessed you with <3.
- What is one fear or one worry you may have?
- One last thing smile ❤ ❤
