Today was an awesome day. After paying off some bills I bought on my first pair of boots while shopping for a good pair of boots for my daughter. They are Size 7 FRYE Harness 12R Boots in Tan (more like a beautiful dark brown) in I absolutely love them! I am looking forward to breaking them in am wearing them a lot! My daughter is ecstatic about her boots too, Palladium Pampa Parade Leain black, FRYE’s, she looks so confident in them, and I think she will get a lot of use out of them. Finally some quality that will last a lifetime.

I have been trying really hard to focus on things in my life that are complicating my emotional wellbeing and those around me. I tend to go off the handle if things aren’t a certain way, thus the title I have given myself, “complainy whiny girl”.
I often failed to look at myself and how my behavior or words might affect others. And the toxic thoughts, that constantly wrack my brain, that have hidden my true self. It wasn’t until the past few months, while doing some soul searching and reading that I started to see.
I’ve compiled my top 5 “complainy whiny girl” problems below:
1. The complains about others complaining problem.
2. Whines about others who don’t know when to slow down or be quiet problem.
3. The, I really don’t like to listen to other people’s drama problem.
4. The complain about messes left by other people, but not my own problem.
5. The stop and think before I act or say anything stupid problem.
This list can go on, but I think this paints a picture of what I mean.
I have always been a bit of a perfectionist, but only when I felt like it. Complaining about other people, having a drama queen moment, then reflecting on how big of an idiot I must have looked like. I was failing to look at myself. There is a lot of the stuff I complain about, that I do in some to some aspect. Now is the time to be the better person and accept responsibility for my behavior.

Frequently I inquire within for an answer to this question with no response. I know what I want to do, but don’t have the discipline to do it. I am currently working on reading a book to get me started, but I procrastinated for 3 days and stopped writing too. I told myself when I started this book that I wanted to follow the exercises and free-write every day. So what now?
Time to get back on the horse again. Trying again.

I am currently working on a good read by Mark Levy,
“Accidental Genius: Using Writing to Generate Your Best Ideas, Insight, and Content”, the book is available in Kindle and paperback on Amazon. I am liking it so far and have been able to discipline myself over the last few days to do the free-writing and exercises in the book. I have skipped one exercise, due to procrastination, but I hope to go back to it later. I am currently on Chapter 5. This is a big effort for me, but I have to start somewhere. I tend to have problems retaining what I read, “probably because I don’t read enough”, and end up putting books down in the middle and deferring them until I eventually forget and have to start over. My goal is to stay on top of this one and keeping reading to the last page. Will have more insight on this book later.

What is existence? Where does it stem from? Who am I to judge or be judged?

Well, it’s a slow read. I’ve been so interested in other things, rather than sit down and read it. It’s not one of those “I just can’t put it down” books, to me. But I will keep trying, who knows, maybe something will grab my interest.

Starting to read a new book that was gifted to me today. Hope to write a review on it.

Since we have been together, I have done some many things for you. I keep your refrigerated food cold, and your frozen foods frozen. Please pay attention to me. There’s nothing more annoying to me then to smell mold growing in here, it makes me gag. Please toss these disgusting science experiments out, or grow them somewhere else. By the way, the kids bedroom, says do not let them grow in here. Also, please make sure to wipe down my shelves once in awhile and get those vegetable peelings out of my crisper drawers. In return, I will work as hard as I can to make sure the food stays cold. If you don’t, you can forget about the ice, and I will freeze all your stuff on the bottom shelf.
Love, The Refrigerator

It is 7:54 pm on a Saturday. Cecelia is at the Chuck Palahniuk reading in Asheville. I am sitting in the mall bookstore with my laptop. This strikes me as a rather boring activity. People, sitting, sipping coffee, in Starbucks seating area with their laptops or books. Pretty much silent, with music in the background, and an occasional word or two spoken, or a blender going off. Are we in the library or something?
