My feelings and a bunch of other stuff

Hello, my bucket list friends! Happy Wednesday! There are times when I have a lot of random things I want to talk about. This is one of thoes times. This week the theme at the preschool where I teach is feelings and emotions. Due to that I thought would start out by talking about my feelings. This morning I’m feeling tired. Pretty much whenever I have to wake up to an alarm and I can’t wake up on my own, I’m tired. Most of the time in the mornings during the week I’m ready to go back to bed. As for my other feelings, I’m excited to watch the Amazing Race season premiere tonight. Fall TV season is here and I’m looking forward to seeing new episodes of some of my favorite shows. The Masked Singer also starts a new season tonight. Another thing I’m excited about is that I’ve written more posts for Vocal Media. I really love writing and I hope to be a published author one day. I write about a wide range of topics on Vocal Media including lists of blog post ideas. Here are links to my five favorite articles I’ve written for Vocal Media so far.

1. Clutter core

2. Fun blog post ideas

3. My never list

4. Summer bucket list ideas

5. Blogging ideas when you don’t know what to blog about

Now, back to my feelings. I’m feeling sad about the fact that tomorrow is the first official day of fall. I wish we could skip fall and go right to Christmas. However, if I had to choose only one feeling to describe myself right now it would have to be motivated. I’m really determined to be a writer and voice actor. It’s a slow process but I try to keep working at it a little each day. I added donation boxes onto my about page and my bucket list page. To hopefully get some extra money from my blog. However if I don’t make any extra money it won’t bother me. I really love writing this blog and it’s worth more than money to me. If my words bring a smile to someone’s face that is worth more in my eyes. I wish we could pay bills with smiles but unfortunately that is not reality. If you would like to donate to me you can do so by going to my about page or my bucket list page from the menu on homepage of my blog but I want to make it clear that there is no pressure or expectation for anyone to do so .As I finish this blog post it is the end of the work day and once again I’m tired but I have some good TV to look forward to!

Thanks for reading!

If Animals could talk ……

Hello, my bucket list friends I have what I like to call a busy brain. I’m pretty much always thinking ten miles a minute. Random ideas are always popping into my head. Well recently I’ve been thinking about what life would be like if animals could talk. Let me give you some background on this. I have a 21 year old cat named Blanca she is a very sweet and happy cat but she does have kidney disease and because of that we have to give her fluids using a needle and as you can probably guess she does not like this at all. I wish so much that I could tell her why we are doing this and how much it helps her. I wish she could understand that we are caring for her and helping her to be healthier. Then one night I noticed one of my other cats Sherry itching because of fleas so of course I put  flea medicine on her and right away she ran away from me it was like she was scared of me. Once again I wish she could understand that I was helping her.  I feel like some simple communication would solve a lot of the problems that we have when it comes to our animal friends. We could tell the dogs that the mail man is harmless, we could ask the birds not to poop on our cars and we could listen to their endless stories of everything they observe in a day. I think the point of all my random thoughts is this, communication is an important and valuable tool and while we may not be able to talk to the animals we encounter every day we can talk to other people.  Unfortunately we often forget that we have that ability, we sometimes think that by communicating our feelings we are being difficult or dramatic. I do wish animals could tell people how they are feeling and what they need but I also wish that we would use communication more often then we do. I wish people would be quicker to express themselves instead of hiding what they really feel. Now, I’m not saying that people should act out in fits of anger or tell their struggles to everyone they meet no matter how much it hurts. What I’m saying is this we need to take more advantage of this important tool that we have. Feeling left out in your group of friends ? Tell Them how you feel. Struggling with the amount of work or homework you have ? Talk to a coworker ,your boss , classmate or teacher. Some people may think that being open and honest with your feelings makes you week but the truth is it’s one of the smartest things a person can do. by speaking up you may discover that it can help you to solve problems , lead you to people who can assist you with things you may be struggling with, make good relationships better and end relationships that are not healthy and maybe it will make you feel more confident. So you may not be able to tell your dog that its  not necessary to  bark every time a car goes by or ask your fish what decorations they would like to have in their tank but you can tell your friends that your thankful for them, you can tell everyone that asks that you haven’t decided on a career choice yet and you can even ask others if they have anything bottled up inside that they would like to share.  Next time you have something you need to get of your chest remember be respectful , be honest and be a communicator! PS. I wish I could nicely ask my cat to move over on the couch so I can lay down!
