Just a reminder

This is a list of reminders to myself. They could be relevant to you, if they are, I hope they can help motivate greater kindness towards yourself. I was inspired by similar posts that Liz has made.

  • It’s okay to be sad and cry. You don’t have to try to act strong all the time. You’re just ignoring emotions that are going to build up and explode (boom).
  • You should not feel stupid because you are unable to do something that someone else can (and don’t use that ‘everyone can’ excuse, because that is a lie).
  • Measuring your own self worth on any kind of scale (including ones where other people are involved) is a lie.
  • So you don’t look like a model or won’t be a cover girl. It does not mean that you are ugly and worthless. That kind of theory gives you an F-.

30B30: Plan a future

This blog post is part of the 30 Before 30 tag, where I have 30 goals that I aim to complete before turning 30 on the 11th of March, 2017.

I thought it was certainly time to update my 30 Before 30 tag, with a specific update and tick off of the Plan a future item (sitting on #2). It’s kind of a big one, and I am glad that I can now be able to say; “Oh cool, I have a future, I have plans, things are going to be alright.” That’s not to say, that unexpected things can’t happen, plans can and often do change. I am content with the fact that at least for now, I have some direction!

My plan for the future

Fanlistings

I decided to take up a online hobby that I used to enjoy, making fanlistings.

What is a fanlisting? If you are not sure what a fanlisting is, it is a fansite that you make for a particular subject and allow members to join from around the world. If a member has a website they can use one of the buttons or codes to place on their website and show they are a fan of something (keep in mind that this was before Facebook allowed you to like certain interests, activities and entertainment). You can choose to make a fanlisting for anything, or you can make something for a subject not listed at The Fanlistings Network and apply to have yours listed (or to make one for an available interest). If you have a fanlisting listed on The Fanlistings Network, you have to make sure you follow guidelines, such as allowing everyone to join and making sure you update the site every two months.
