Okay, so I like to calendars and clocks. I don't know why I am a clock watcher. I will admit I have calmed down, but I still do in certain situations. I don't even actually pay attention to the time every time. Kind of like when I seem to be looking at something when I'm actually not. Seeing is different than looking I have discovered. I even thought of making clocks. I got this cool little pamphlet from my local Hobby Lobby store with some unique ideas. My grandmother said you can make a lamp out of about anything. Well, I think clocks may be the same way.
I collect calendars. My desk calendar is of different unique pieces of jewelry, from the 1800s to 2014. I bought it for half price, of course. So, I had to start in the middle of the year, but I looked at the days on the other side of each card. I have thrown calendars away. My wall one I probably will, it's fish. I don't know why I feel pictures should not be thrown away. But sometimes it's necessary, because they aren't necessary.
During this time I have had to slow down because of healing, I have occupied myself with getting rid of stuff. My mind was blind to a lot of things and I just couldn't get motivated to finish unpacking. It got kind of bad. Well, I don't remember if I said this, but I was obsessed with the tiny house shows on television. So, I went to hgtv.com and diynetwork.com to look for videos. I ended up reading different articles, including some on organizing. I woke up. I asked myself, why do I save papers. That's my thing.
Everytime I move, just about, I get rid of papers before during and after the move. I don't know why. I'm trying to get better at tossing junk mail and coupons I know I will not use. I even get the free publishings at the stores. I'm not quite to the point of throwing junk mail away right when i get it. I want to shred it, so I gather those. Currently I am trying to get the shredder to stop jamming. Protect your ID. I've had mine stolen 3 times now, from entities I would have never dreamed of. All these things going on now, we can only try.
Well, I am resolved to not let the end of the calendar, of 2016, get to me. Even though the car accident and surgery have really taken a toll on my person and I was very sad to realize that it's been more than half a year. I must move forward.
As I said in the previous post, I am trying to make this blog a helpful resource. Also, somewhere to just relax. One of the reasons I have ads is that I would also like it to have password protected pages. Hopefully, to build a safe/private "room" for support and discussion. I removed the forum and am not sure if I will be able to replace it yet, but I would like to have it or a safe chat. Also, I would like to get my own secure domain.
I keep doing this, because I feel like writing :) (hmm... ideas, ideas, ideas). I did say I'm not a stickler for grammer on here. Anyways, I really just want others to be aware of resources I was not aware of. If I help just one person feel not alone, get help, speak out, deal with stuff, I'm going to keep going. It's difficult, because these are difficult, private things nobody really wants to talk about. Let alone show themselves. I feel the password protected pages will help to bring that sense of a safe place to get people sharing their thoughts.
With that said, this is not just a place for survivors and fighters of abuse and assault, etc. It's also a place for those that love them. Whoever you are, thank you for taking time out to read what's going on. I hope you get a great new calendar, fill it with wonderful things and smile as you remember them on 12/31/17.
