Where I have been

Very busy with work and life (especially work, lol!)...

I decided to take a look at my life and prune away unneccessary things. I re-evaluated my life over the last few years and had to decide on what was important and needed improving on and what was just dragging me down. This became especially clear to me when Michael Jackson (I love you more!) passed on. It was again brought home to me the fact that every day we live equals to a day less here on earth.

Also, I have been flying a bit and there is nothing like experiencing extremely bad turbulence with "in the name of Jesus!!" screaming Nigerians to have your life flash you by.

So I have effected a few changes. I have always known that what is unnecessary is disturbing so bye-bye to:

Reading theybf and other gossip sites. I do not need to know every last thing that Beyonce or Kanye have been up to. Instead, I filtered what I was really looking for: pictures on their fashion and found another blog that focuses on that without all the unnecessary gist.

I have to mention the fact that theybf had very damaging stories on Michael Jackson. Including how he was strange and had all that surgery and was trying to be white. Okay, and so? It is not my business. I have my own issues and reading someone else's does not help me in anyway unless it is constructive in the sense that I am drawing lessons from another's experiences that will positively impact my life. In a way I feel that even reading those things about him added to his unhappiness. A burden that I no longer want to bear.
I need to add that this is not a personal attack against theybf. She tells a good story and is highlighted here because she was the only site of its kind I used to read (I am usually visually stimulated and she has loads of pictures to go with each story).

I am reading books that open up my mind. Not just reading for reading sake. My time here has to count. And how can it count if I am reading rubbish?

I still need to struggle with what I watch as I put away a lot of movies and series. Couldn't I be spending that time better.

Spending quality time with my daughter. Doing more things that will benefit her.

So there you have it. What have you been up to?

  3. How's your daughter doing? I hope she is well.

    This reevaluation thing is always a good thing. There is so much we do that when we look back, we will realize we could have done something else with your time. Nothing wrong with staying away from entertainment sites especially if it means more time for your family and the other important things in your life.

    Wishing your family and yourself the absolute best.

  12. I'm amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's both educative and entertaining, and without a doubt,
    you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.

    I'm very happy that I stumbled across this in my hunt for something concerning this.

  14. Extremely helpful write-up. The price colour and multifunction color laser printers ought to
    have been addressed. They're still more costly than inkjet printers although worth the additional costs.

  15. Occasionally the best means to taken out embedded control sequences is to duplicate and insert the affected part to notepad, clean the text you desire
    preserved, then content and paste it back.

  17. I would not really chose the pet spend surprising. Many pet focused
    businesses within the last few decade are extremely successful.
    My mom comes with a old business colleague that started an epidermis
    care line for dogs, and she or he is swimming in their own millions.
    Amazing. I spent my money and efforts on my three angels and
    hubby. My poor dogs were again ignored.
