The way I got the name for the blog is simple.  One of my best friends has the domain first and she started a new one so she gave this one to me.  I blogged under several different names in the past and honestly A few I loved the names! Though I have been blogging for about 14 years now and love it!  For the past 3 years I have blogged under Standing Still and when she gave me this one the name just stuck. A few of my closest friends say the name suits me better!   This blog is my journey through depression, divorce and starting over!   Though everything else has been threw in the mix but it works!   Well that is me and the blog in a nutshell.. I hope you will join me tomorrow!

 

 

 

 

 

Welcoming November

14713670_1705534003102653_2058994201572275351_n.jpg

November is upon us and that means cooler weather, hot chocolate, snuggled up with a blanket and my favorite book!  I have decided I am going to Dig out my House of Night Series and start reading those again.. They have decided to make that into a movie so I am excited about that.   Also this month I have found 2 Blog challenges that I am going to be taking from each day and posting something.   This way I can post like I want to every day!

Here are the two challenges I will be taking from. I found these on Google. I am not sure what blog they are with but I liked them so i wanted to use them and maybe get myself inspired!  We shall see!     In a bit I am going to start with  Day 1 – Your Blogs Name!  So be sure to look for that.

Blog Challenges

You know as May ended, I realized that I never really finished the blog challenge and that seems to  be the normal thing with me at times. I get busy and not able to blog as much as I want to.

I don’t know why though. It starts off well and then in the end I never end up finishing things. Photo challenges are the only ones I tend to do but sometimes not even those. So i think  I will do challenges at my own pace.   It seems to be the best way to do it well for me anyway!

So maybe what I think I am going to do is just do posts when I can do them and try and start blogging at least a few times a week and do things as much as I can!

 

Caring For Others

Caring for others seems to be about the only thing that I do anymore.  I mean I take care of everyone, but honestly you get used to it!  You ignore what you want and need and put everyone else before you!    Ignoring how you feel about everything and putting others before you!  Not having the money to do anything on your own  especially when you lost your job in order to take others to Doctors appointments!

But what can you do. It is part of life as well as something you seem to get used to anymore!

 

Mail Call

Let me see what was the last piece of real mail that I actually received. Thinking about it, I really do not get any mail unless it is junk mail or something like that.  The last piece of real mail I received was a letter from my brother and my host packet for the Color Street Party I am having.  You can click on the link to order from the party.

For those who are not sure what Color Street is. It is actually pretty Simple to do..  It is Nail Polish Strips that take a few minutes to apply and last up to 14 days!   They are amazing! Especially for those who have a problem with your polish chipping after 1 day of wear.

I really do not get mail. So i am ok with that.  Though sometimes I miss that letter from your friend that comes in and you can sit down and tell them about everything!

Favorite Outfit

My favorite clothes is anything leggings and a tank top. Though I do love wearing skirts or dresses.. Heels forget it. I am comfortable in slip on shoes or flip flops. Yes I am the girl who can wear flip flops all year long!  As long as i am comfortable i am ok.. I do not do jeans to much but if I have to wear them then i will.. I do not like  to feel trapped when i wear a tshirt so it better be baggy so i can actually move.  I know i am picky when it comes to what i wear. Hell who isnt really. you want to be comfortable.

 

Roll Model

My role model has always been my grandfather. He was my best friend.  I would and could talk to him about anything and I wanted to be just like him growing up.  Some people say my role model should have been my mother or someone like that, but honestly I was never really close to her. She was always somewhere else and not really a role model type.

Other than my grandfather. I would say My Aunt Mandy. She was one of the greatest women I have met.  She was always  around for her family and friends.  When my uncle passed she never once stopped caring about her family!
