When a Loaded Word (c**t) is Flung in Your Direction…

Today started off as any other day. I sent out my CV to potential job opportunities (I was made redundant), had lunch and then decided to do my daily walk around town.  It would always end at my local Waitrose (grocery store chain in the UK) where I would pick up a few necessities and then make my way to Costa Coffee where I would splurge and get my decaf peach iced tea. Yes, that is what I call splurging at the moment. This has been my routine, my world, for the last 2 months. A simple one. But today was not like any other day, today was the day I was called an uneducated C**t in an upscale grocery store.

Why Mom Was Right About Not Writing Things Down…


My mom wasn’t the most open about many a things when I was growing up. Most things were learnt from friends and my grandma (maternal side who I called Baba). Baba would teach me invaluable things like ‘Washing dishes makes your hands and nails beautiful’ and ‘Don’t sit with your legs up and spread apart while wearing a skirt so everyone can see your underwear’. Of course I can’t forget the one about ‘I must learn to cook because how else will I become a good housewife’. Afterall the key to a man’s heart is through his stomach right? Well, I later found out that washing dishes by hand ruins your nails, and if I wore shorts under my skirt I avoided people seeing my underwear, and I learnt to cook for myself and not because I was going to get married. Anyway, besides all that, being an only child didn’t help my situation either. So growing up wasn’t an easy task to conquer. With my mom’s limited hands-on, in depth talks and my friends telling me wrong things I was a hopeless case. However with that being said my momma did instill one tidbit of information that has stuck with me throughout my  life…And that is to never write anything down that you don’t want others to see. Because if it happened to fall into the wrong hands, it would ruin you.

I’d Rather be Too Much…

 

What’s being ‘too much’ of something and why is it a hindrance to most people? Is caring too much a problem? To some, yes. Is laughing too much an annoyance? Again to some, yes. And why do people cut you down with the phrase ‘You’re just too much’?

The Best Version of You

Be The best you can be

What does it mean to be the best version of yourself? Does it take effort? Will it take much time? The answer to these questions is, undefinable. There can’t be one answer to rule them all, so to speak. Therefore if you think that it will only require a little discipline then that’s how long it will take. The answers are geared towards you as an individual. We all have a certain image in our brains as in how we would like to act. Sometimes our version might be a little skewed to the norms of reality. After all we are all different. Therefore we won’t think the same when it comes to what the ideal traits one should have. But I think the most important point is that at least you are willing to put forth your idea of the best version of you. That you are doing something. And that says enough right there. If you are contented to put your best foot forward then it shows that you want to be a responsive participate as a human being. You are eager to help, love, put others first and sacrifice to make life worth living. Even the tiniest of changes makes a difference in how others perceive you. So don’t think that you have to alter your whole DNA foundation. No! All it means is to be the best person that your abilities will allow. Don’t worry about others. Don’t stress that your not meeting the quota. Just do you! Do what makes you feel comfortable. But do something! Imagine if we all came into this world with the intention of trying to be our better selves. Oh what a world it would be.
