Opinionated man’s blogging challenge

http://aopinionatedman.com/2013/06/19/blogging-challenge/

Hi y’all I am back for a short time and one of my favorite blogs! He is an opinionated man. This is a quality I have just begun to practice. Having my own opinions! So, when I read he was doing his own blogging challenge I was excited to participate. I am a true novice but here is my take on number 9. If you could change your last name to Butts or Pecker which would you choose?Well, hands down I would be Mrs Pecker! I am a middle-aged menopausal female I will choose pecker every time! And I am totally sure a lot of your female followers would choose pecker too! You see a pecker to me is a precious thing to me. If I could honor the pecker in such a way as taking his last name I would in a split second! You see the many Pecker’s I have met in my lifetime they all were so polite and kind. So, my choice today and always for the new name I would choose Pecker for sure!

Taking care of myself

I needed to have a goal added to this blogging and my living life on life’s terms. So, I added a new category and titled my first post Taking care of myself. I have been going through a lot. I realized that I have let myself totally go! Several factors played into this and they are facts like going through a separation after 25 years of marriage, my children growing up and making choices of their own, feeling not needed by them anymore, drama that comes with having to make ends meet financially and they don’t, wanting everyone in your entire family to get along at every moment, just plain worrying about everyone and everything else besides myself and my mental and physical health and well-being.

You see, I thought that in my 40’s I would be settled with my husband in 2 recliners watching TV or something silly like that. It’s funny I never saw me smiling in this visualization. But, I visualized contentment. Well, life and a higher power had other things in mind for me.

So, here I sit with a choice to make. Change now that the door is open and I can smell the sense of the many choices I can make on my very own. I have slowly let myself go and waited silently still not ready to dip my toe completely into the great lake of change. Oh, don’t get me wrong I made a couple of pretty major changes. I moved from the pacific coast all the way to southern USA! I became clean and sober. I got the wants! I didn’t know for what. I don’t think I still do exactly. But, I am learning to grown and reinvent yourself. While still living life on life’s terms and everything that comes along with that is a process. It has begun this process I feel the changes. Taking care of myself is my first topic of importance.  I will be resting for a bit because I need to. I have to stay away from social media and people and just be alone.

If you have some suggestions on stuff like meditation for dummies, or eating well on a budget of a poper, letting your grown children make stupid choices they will live to regret and shutting your mouth about it all, menopause oh boy menopause. Keep in mind I am going to become very informed on issues that will make myself better but I can’t understand what I read unless it is in laymen’s terms. I have a high school education that is very old now. I want to know what helped you. If you would like to share.

Bye bye for now just a day maybe two……
