regret

Here is a quote that perfectly describes one of my biggest regrets in life!

As I work my way through a list of regrets, and try to give them a positive spin (lesson learned, personal growth and such), I have a hard time to come to terms with this regret: regret

At first I spend a lot of energy on pleasing selfish people because for some complicated reason I wanted to proof that I am worth their consideration!

But of course, I always ended up looking more like a fool, a sad kind of fool.

I know now that the reason was my low self-esteem, and taking it way to personal of someone was inconsiderate towards me.

As my life is in a good place right now, I love myself! And I am surrounded by a handful of people who love me with all my flaws! And I learned, at the end that is all that matters to me!

Looking back at this regret, I am angry! Mostly with myself, and I just can’t wrap my head around why I even tried! To sum it all up, I feel embarrassed, and maybe it is because I still care what these people think?


Until next time

Today’s words to live by comes from the one and only Mr. Benedict Cumberbatchcomfort zone

Last week I took a big step out of my comfort zone in my personal life! And I was so surprised by the positive outcome that I wanted to share the story with you, and maybe inspire you to do the same!

My husband is a contractor for the US Military, and we are living in Naples, Italy! Now before you might say: Lucky you! Let me tell you, it took me two years to start feeling comfortable and at home here.

Everything overwhelmed me, the driving, the shopping, the language, standing in line for coffee, and again the DRIVING!

It does not help that I am very introvert. Introverts and the life of Naples do not mix very well.

Now seven years later, and all my friends have come and gone, life is lonely! And I quickly realized sitting at home on my couch and waiting for someone to knock on my door to be my friend, is not only going to happen but also would be creepy as hell!

The frist step I took was joining a local Facebook group for spouses to meet up and get to know each other.

Last Wednesday, I went to my first get together. It was seven strangers and me! I kept thinking; I can’t believe I am doing this! We met for lunch at the Waterfront in Naples.

What was my goal? I will be 100% authentic! You know how you try to show your best side when you meet someone for the first time!

Nope, none of that! Yes, I have a little potty mouth, I smoke, I drink lots of coffee, I love a good drink, and hell no I do not exercise. This is me, deal with mode!

What was my expectation? If I click with only one of the ladies, I will have my mission accomplished!

What was the result? I had the time of my life! Lots of laughs, great food, and all the ladies were lovely, and I am looking forward to seeing them again.

Of course, I do not know if they feel the same way about me, as they probably would be too nice to say otherwise. But I did accomplish my mission.

Yes, Mr. Cumberbatch, it is great fun not to be in your comfort zone!


Until next time

Time for a little quote inspiration and what this quote means to me!


quote

One of the hardest things I had to learn, and I am still struggling with it. I wear my emotions on a sleeve, and my face is an open book.

You take one look at me, and you can tell what I am thinking. But that also leaves a huge opening for others to get a raise out of me!

The best advice I ever got was from my best friend: “Kill them with Kindness” But this is easier said than done, especially with a hot head like me.

But, on the other hand, if I do pull it off and just smile and stay silent, the reaction from my opponent is priceless. They are at a loss on how to proceed without looking like a jackass! And that alone is satisfaction enough for me to keep quiet no matter how hard it is!

Give it a try, and you will see what I mean! Do not attempt to explain or justify yourself! Just stay quite and walk away! You will feel great for being the bigger person!

Until next time
