Prepare to be amazed.
It wasn’t quite the insightful exercise I was hoping for myself.
What did I learn? I really want a holiday.
What will you learn? Honestly? Not much… other than how to over use the word holiday and annoy people.
I give you Taking Stock February 2017.
Making : A big mess in my lounge room. It’s become the dumping ground for all those things called “Bugga” That I don’t know where else to put!
Realising: I have an exceptional amount of things called “Bugga”.
Cooking : Cooking? Bahahaha – don’t be so funny!
Drinking : Way too many cups of tea. Waaaaay too many.
Reading: The Desire Map by Danielle LaPorte (again). Helping me think about how I wish to feel in this life instead of thinking about what I should be accomplishing. Thought provoking? Much!
Wanting: A holiday. A week will do. Preferably not at my expense.
Looking: At fairy wrens hopping around the front sliding door (so cute).
Pondering: The BIG questions. Such as “How do I wish to spend my time left on this earth?” Thank you Psychologist for the easy questions. (Hence current reading material).
Enjoying: The warm weather. As long as I don’t have to go outside and work in it. Sorry poor neglected garden.
Waiting: For Autumn to arrive. I just love Autumn.
Liking: Hanging out with my brother while he hunts for a beach house. I’m exceptionally good at spending his money. He hasn’t parted with any yet. I may have a highly evolved eye for detail that consistently translates into properties being around $1.99 over his budget (in other words I have expensive tastes that do not align with his bank balance… sigh).
Wondering: Why aging isn’t full of wonder and excitement as the first part of your life. It doesn’t seem fair. Watching and supporting aging family members is a big suckable time of life for all.
Loving: Slow days.
Listening: To fairy wrens and fan tails twitter in the garden. Yes, I am officially an old person.
Considering: Going back to the gym.
Buying: Not a holiday that’s for sure!
Watching: Big Bang Theory – what else is worth watching???
Hoping: To have a holiday not at my own expense as previously stated.
Marvelling: At how deluded I am wishing for an all expenses paid holiday.
Cringing: At my bank statement. Festive Season of December – you may go have sexual relations with yourself.
Needing: People in protective suits and breathing apparatus to help clean out my lounge room.
Questioning: Why the bloody hell I dumped so much crap in said lounge room.
Smelling: White Sage Insence. I’m hooked. Thank you Belinda!
Wearing: Favourite mauve singlet top and light grey shorts that make my but look big. Don’t care. My go to, around the house, summer everyday style. Glamorous? You bet!
Noticing: How bloody dry it is. Send her down Huey!
Thinking: That these word prompts require a lot more thought than I anticipated.
Admiring: My Mum. She’s 82 years old and just keeps plodding along.
Getting: I’d like to say really excited about going on a holiday. (Sorry).
Opening: My mind. Time to dip my toe in the waters outside my comfort zone.
Giggling: Not at the sight of my bank balance or travel brochures.
Feeling: Not very enthused but thankful to be here.
Celebrating: Thirty/30 years of marriage very soon.
Pretending: I’m not that old.
Embracing: Life as I know it.
So there you have it. Riveting stuff. If you’d like to do your own taking stock evaluation I’ve listed the word prompts below for you to copy.
Share some or all of your answers in the comments below if you like. If you use the list elsewhere please leave a link in the comment section so we can all pop on over with a cup of tea for a read.
Meanwhile, I’ll be lazing on the sun lounge out the back pretending I’m on holiday waiting to read your responses.
