My apologies for the long break between updates. Honestly my life lately has been an ongoing series of traumatic events and stressful situations with the occasional laugh thrown in just to ensure that I don’t completely lose my hard-fought-for sanity. If I wrote here all the things that have happened just in the last few weeks, you’d swear that you were reading some melodramatic soap opera! Truly you would. There’s been times I took to drink – I did, I swear and I’m not a drinker!
I have lamented often lately, “why oh why is this happening all the bloody time??” And do you know what I finally came to realise? Slowly but painfully a number of people have revealed their true colours to me and it was literally in response to my own changing. You see, people don’t like it when you get to the breaking point and decide that you’re not going to take their crap any more. It freaks them out – how dare you change? How dare you decide to not put up with my shoddy behaviour?
Anyone relate to that?
That’s what has been happening….the more that I decided I’m not willing to be the nice girl, the peace keeper that lets other people get away with crap they’d never do – the more those people showed me their true sides, their true colours. And boom! just like that I hit my limit. People can be toxic in your life, toxic to you and you sometimes have to walk away.
So walk I have. Yay me. 👍🏼😊
It comes at a big emotional price but I’m not willing to pay with physical stress anymore, just to let the toxicity of these people have their way.
Enough is enough. A beautiful friend of mine gave me this and it’s now my mantra –
“I allow nothing and no one, least of all myself, to weaken or injure me with negative words or deeds.”
Thanks, C. 💋
Thanks also to the Angels for guiding me through these last few turbulent weeks – my Earth Angels ( looking at you, J, M, T, J, R, and R) as well as my Heavenly Angels, Guardian Angels and beloved lost souls. And my Angel cards…..I have given them a working out lately, believe me.
Now, that aside…I have been making progress on my book. Another yay me.! 😊 It’s been loads of fun changing characters names etc. Yes, I was disappointed I couldn’t use the show’s original names but that’s okay…..I’m over that and I’m climbing that mountain (remember I was standing at the bottom of the mountain in a previous blog? I reckon I’m about half way up now.). Ignore me if I start yodelling as I climb.
You’ll never guess the characters new names……Dare you to try! Go on….. Lol.
It’s funny how the need to change the characters names and certain aspects of the story has turned into an opportunity to recreate the story and will then hopefully be even better. Hidden blessings, as they say.
It does make me wonder if there was some way that I could market or sell the fanfic version as I originally wrote it? Anyone know the legality of that? Anyone even want the original version? Sound off in the comments or contact me if you have ideas etc…..I wouldn’t mind hearing what you think.
As unfortunate as its been that my book is taking longer than I anticipated, hopefully the end product will be worth it.
For now, I better get back to writing and editing.
Promise I’ll update faster.
PS: for those wanting to know – no, we haven’t found a house yet, still looking and it’s driving me crazy.
PPS: Woohhoooooo! Go the Richmind Tigers!! Footy is back and I love it.
