But what if your life was a blog? How convenient would that be?
1. You can edit your life or the details of it if you want.
2. You can copy and paste details from a former life blog to experience them again.
3. You can add photos to your memory of places you have never been.
4. You can delete details that you wished never happened (this could be a form of editing I guess).
I thought the question up above was interesting. This includes social media. Nobody likes having their lives judged, but isn't it funny how much of our lives we put on display to give people an opportunity to? I think if you do, you leave yourself wide open to judgment.
I have been practicing minimalism for a few years now. ( I think I have posted a short blog about it on noise.cash a few months ago). When I was a little younger, I used to spend beyond average. I had a couple of things I really love to buy (bags, shoes, perfumes, etc) which ended up in the closet. When I got married, gave birth to my daughter, and started going to school, pandemic happens, etc., things got drastically tough emotionally and financially. I started a budget. It's a great strategy that helped me live inexpensively. I stop eating out (unless invited lol). It's pandemic anyway, so it's also a decision. Better safe than sorry. I also make my shopping/grocery list or having a notebook everytime I go to spend money and I write down what I spent it on. I cut down looking at sale items online. Eheemmm... Lazada, Shopee! I don't use credit cards. I just load my BCH wallet and HODL. And many others.
Copying and pasting my wonderful memories and living them all over again
I had awesome childhood days (except that I was raised and disciplined using a belt). I lived in a family compound where my neighbors are my cousins. We always played outside our compound until before 6:00 pm. That is the point at which we realized the time had come to return home. We are Catholics and if we hear the church's bell rings, we had to hurry home because we need to go pray and give our grannies a head bless ("mano" in tagalog) as a sign of respect. My grannies by the way are Spanish, so they were kind of strict. If you're not home at 6:00 pm, you get spanked lol. Ahhh, those good old days. No gadgets. No problem.
Adding photos to my memory of places I have never been
When I was little (until now), I was a huge fan of fairytales, magic, and stuff. I wanted to go to places like Disneyland. When I graduated college, I went to visit different places locally, nationally, and internationally. One of them includes Disneyland. It is truly the happiest place on earth. I could walk around there all day and all night. When I gave birth, I had to make sure I'll take my daughter to Disneyland too, and I did. When my daughter turned 6 (old enough to appreciate the place), my husband and I took her there (Christmas vacation in 2018). That was the last International travel we had since the pandemic arrived. I wish we could travel again and wander places in the world we have never been.
Deleting details that I wished never happened
I was suicidal and suffered from depression for years. I took medication for almost a year and went to psychiatrists for some medication. I have attempted suicide several times and have lost people close to me to suicide. I won't go into details of my past here or what my struggles are - maybe another time. It is still painful if I think about them. I do believe though, that too often good people who suffer commit suicide for this very reason, they cannot forgive themselves. Whether it be for something they did wrong or the feeling that their existence is wrong and has been.
It is always breathtaking to realize how quickly life can change. Some of those quick changes can force lessons on us whether we were ready or not.
Anyway, we have our own lives to live. We all have the full right to take all the decisions about them.
Don't let others choose your life and what you need to do, where you need to be in the following year or coming years, where ought to go, where should contemplate, how to live, etc. If you allow an opportunity to them, they carry on with their life through you.
Enjoy your New Week, my friends. Be kind, be nice, be aware, be sensitive to the feelings of others, be cautious, be helpful when you can, and just take life easy. Whatever you are facing, however hard, how much or how little time you've had to prepare, go slow, trust your instincts, do your awesome best. You got this.
