I Am Not a “Good Girl”

There’s something that always irks me; when someone calls me a “good girl”

Like I’m a little child doing as I’m told. I find it quite derogatory.

It’s just as annoying when someone mentions it to me at my place of work; where the customer is supposedly always right.

I don’t know if they know it’s being disrespectful, but it just rubs me the wrong way.

New Year’s Resolution: Unknown

I keep thinking that I have to make a resolution; that it’s a necessity for me to confirm to the world that I have to change.

I don’t understand why I need to shout it out to the world about what I may need to do to change my life.

In my opinion, I believe that it makes it harder for you to achieve your goals. Because you have the mindset that you’re already halfway there. Without even putting the effort in.

How about you keep quiet, and surprise the heck out of everyone with your awesome achievement? That sounds a lot more exciting to me.

So, here’s me NOT making a resolution. But if I achieve something big this year, I’ll let you know!

Relate

Music is what I can relate to.

It is my go to when things are tough, and I need a release.

It is where I can just let go. Where the mind can just be free and wild.

Where it feels like that the lyrics are written just for me.

No judgement to seen or heard. Just understanding and feeling the raw emotion

It is where I can just relate to something, so it feels like I’m not alone

With music and writing, I know I am never alone

Flicking a switch

Sometimes there’s a moment when I feel like a switch has been flicked. Where my mindset changes; my thought processes altered. Usually only takes one simple word or conversation, to totally flick from being quite content and confident, to questioning every little thing. It’s astonishing how quickly it can happen. Sometimes you don’t even realise it’s happened.

I felt out of sync for most of the day. Couldn’t put my finger on it. I guess you could say, I was in a temporary funk. But after a short conversation with someone; something shifted. My funk had lifted and shifted!
