This week the prompt for I must confess is ‘what would it be hard for you give up. There was a ton of things that went through my mind when I was thinking of what I couldn’t give up. I’m not sure I could dedicate a post to just one of them, so here is my top things I couldn’t give up.
Accommodation with amenities: Paul wants to go camping. I laugh at him every time he brings it up. I do not ‘do’ camping, unless said campsite has a cabin. My idea of ‘roughing it’ is having to walk to a toilet block to shower.
Writing There have been times when due to the medication I was on, I wasn’t able to write much. It was hard and horrible. I don’t ever want to be in that position again. Writing is one of the few positive coping skills that I have, I don’t want to lose it.
Blogging Blogging is different to writing. I can write, whether I have a medium to publish it to or not. Blogging creates a platform, a community to take you in when things are going pretty shit. The power of the blogging world is pretty awesome when it’s put to good use!
Smart Phone I know, I know, how stereotypical Gen Y of me but it’s true. I lost my phone a couple of years ago and told myself that I would make do with the dodgy nokia I had. I lasted half a day before I was contacting my teleco to ask about a new phone. I missed being able to have all of the conveniences at the touch of a button. I love being able to check my bank account, have my emails accessible and social media to while away the time when waiting for public transport.
ABC4Kids Anyone with kids will agree that this channel can be an absolute saviour! Even if they have decided to move Playschool to 330pm instead of 430pm when I start getting ready for dinner!
Friends I know it’s corny, but it’s true. I couldn’t do without the friends who just get me. The friend who knows not to completely freak out when I text her saying I have been having self harm thoughts. The friend who doesn’t try to call the authorities when you’ve had a bad day and are ready to sell your kid on Ebay. The friend who can match me drink for drink and shares my love for Housos. The friend who gives the no nonsense advice, even if I send her a FB message at 2am.
I hope that I don’t have to give up any of these things in the near future. I like these things and most of them definitely make my life easier.
What would you find hard to give up?
