I can do

When I’m having a difficult day:
1: I need to  reminded myself that God in Jesus Christ loves me.
2: Listen to some uplifting and upbeat music.
3: Try to make everyone laugh around me, and then I can feel the joy
4: Try to accomplish a goal small or great
5: talk to a good friend and laugh until my belly aches.
6: Go for a walk
7: Scream into my pillow, until my anger has dissipated
8: Try some yoga
9: if I can, do something nice for somebody, even a stranger
10: write about my day and then read it as the reader, but not as the storyteller. I do this as a method to step outside of myself to judge my day with rationality, and not my emotions
11: Clean the house, including everyone’s room. Unless I’m upset with them.
12: Have a really good cry
13: Crochet
14: Watch a really good movie with friends, family or alone
15: Pop some popcorn with extra butter and add chocolate m&ms
16: Walk someone’s dog
17: Give everyone around me a compliment and mean every word of it.
18: Go out for dinner with friends and other desserts only. Yeah, plural dessert ūüôā
19: try to recollect a few good things of the day (laughter, smiles, thank yous, sun, rain on a dry day, 10 toes, etc.
20: And of course I do this because it’s possible as¬†I’m¬†praising & praying to Jehovah in the name of Jesus Christ.
21:) well, I contradict myself; I might have been complaining to The Lord about life, rather than praying

Entirely because, that whatever drama that’s playing in my mind or what the devil wants me to believe is true, I know the Heavenly Father got me. Yay, Jesus!

O.M.G. day 28 is here at Zero to Hero. It went by so fast with 2 days to go. So, without further ado, I will start today’s project:¬†DAY 28: BUILD ON YOUR POPULAR CONTENT.

As I look through my past posts, I find that readers so far like posts about new things or what’s I found in around the web. Such as : Weekly Round¬†Up. For the weekly round-up I gave the readers some of my favorite finds found around the web.The other is : What I Found¬†, This ¬†where I gave shout outs to ¬† interesting , and up lifting ¬†blogs

I enjoy, sharing fun, educational, D.I.Y, Photography editing apps and soon my favorite fashion blogs. So, there will be lots more of those to come!

Also, Please! Bare with me as I will add new subjects to blog. Like, my post called: State of the Union¬†.¬†Which was not as popular as the two post mentioned above. It also wasn’t ¬†as popular as my two pages Live 1 Caf√© and Word Trips¬†, which are ¬† usually ¬†missed.

But, I doubt I’ll do politics again or critique our president, for the fact I do respect him. Further more, I don’t want a forum ¬†for anyone else to disrespect him. However, if he cuts my dental and eye care, than we got a problem :))))))

Well, expect to have some fun and uplifting things to come. As well as my uncommon opinion and view on current events. As I’m a Christian, a Woman , and a Writer , that’s in ¬†progress of living.

Weekly Round Up.

Okay, My top three favorites sites for the week.

1) New Nostalgia¬† is an encouraging ¬†and¬†healthy¬†blog that is¬†founded by cancer survivor ¬†Amy¬†Bowmen¬†¬†. Once you read her story on ¬†battling with the illness, this will be your favorite blog. As it has healthy cancer fighting recipes and remedies . I tried some and they’re yummy! She ¬†also has posts on ¬†being a motherhood, ¬†style and gardening. This, blog is a breath of new air to read.

You’ll want to know her better once your read the bio under her profile photo:

”¬†Welcome to New Nostalgia! Here you’ll find my quest to be present in each moment, learning from yesterday and living simply in the NEW!” ~ Amy Bowmen

2)  Leaf T.V.  Is a refreshing site for food, fashion and d.i.y tutorial, the tutorial features: the Whitney Port series. Where did I find them? On , Insatgram. I saw a   3 second video on, how to make a quick and  healthy snack. Brilliant! Right?!

I mean, what girl doesn’t like food, fashion and wants to learn how to make her own ¬†jewlery. ¬†So, it’s a no brainier, that¬†Leaf t.v¬† is the go to blog ¬†that might have it all.

3) Comtentplating Beauty¬†¬†by Gina ¬†who’s ¬†funny, endearing , a mother, and ¬†a wife who makes really lovely crochet things! ¬†Who’ll, share real parts of her life, among ¬†the good graces that surround her. I saw this , when I read her ¬†post about her ¬†daughter ¬†going off to college. She wrote about dealing with the separation of her daughter in living in another state. ¬†Also, ¬†she once shared ¬†a childhood trauma> Both of ¬†those storied ¬†shows her vulnerability and bravery.

Gina’s Blog is where you to sip hot coco with a good friend, while you both smile and laugh at whatever comes your way ūüôā

Determine a Voice

a person who likes to write short stories, poetry and writing in general. I never thought that my blog needed a set voice. I thought it was much like storytelling one page at a time. However, It’s that one page that has to hook our readers in; that’s where I need help.

Unless, I can define my voice in blogging. Which is what I choose for¬†ZeroToHero: Day 14: Blogger’s Choice! Where I found a couple of helpful resources to begin that journey. Here’s the first place I visited:developing your blogging voice¬† and second place:Grammar Girl: Understanding Voice and Tone in writing.¬†Hopefully, once I get my voice, than I can get a set type of readers. Hence, my reasoning for discovering my blog self.

So, once I finish this post I will go back to my bookmarks and revisit each place. I just wanted to stop and share what I found along my trip. Because, as writers and bloggers we can never stop learning in this ever evolving world of words and roads.

What I found Today

I was blog cruising today for HerotoZero ‘s assignment for day 12. ¬†Where, we feature a blog that inspired us to leave a comment on. As wells as elaborate on the comment and elements of the post that we agree or disagree with. ¬†From that I happily came across:¬†C.M.CrabTree post: Be Yourself, Love Yourself.

Who’s post is brave and poses some ¬†questions that should be well thought out. One ¬†question she asked,that I liked, was: “will they like me if they know how I really feel?” She asked this about¬†people in general, whom one would seek approval from.

I gave that question a few minutes of ¬†thought and ¬†came up with a pretty similar conclusion as C.M. CrabTree. I don’t want to give you the answers, because I want you to give her short, but power piece a read.¬†But, I must say in life, period. We must choose¬†wisely and peacefully ¬†for the good of everyone, as well.

Meaning, if you stand up or speak up for something, sometimes no matter how good our intentions are, not everyone wants to see outside the box or ware used shoes.¬†To further add to the title of her post, I’d like to say if you are purely being the best you, you are, it makes it ¬†less difficult to disagree with a ¬†kind, peaceful and honest person and I understand it’s also difficult at times, too.

Now, to Day Thirteen: Time to build a (better) blogroll. Check out the Zero to Hero main page for details and resources.
