My Vivid Dreams

Do you remember a recent dream you had? Or an older one that stayed vivid in your mind? Today, you’re your own Freud: Tell us the dream, then interpret it for us! Feel free to be as serious or humorous as you see fit, or to invent a dream if you can’t remember a real one.


 

My dreams are a bit too personal to write here in my public blog. But, I do dream a LOT!

I day-dream and I dream while I am asleep. Laugh if you want, but they are usually dreams about love. Hehe 🙂

Yeah, they are. And sometimes they are nightmares that I wake up sweating to or just dreams that somehow come true(not joking at all).

A Typical Day

 Describe a typical day in your life — but do it in a form or in a medium you’ve rarely — if ever – used before. If you’re a photoblogger, write a poem. If you’re a poet, write an open letter. If you’re a travel blogger, write a rant. (These are all examples — choose whatever form you feel like trying out!)


 

Dear Readers that follow The Reading Girl,

I think that my days are usually calm or exciting. But I am not going to brag about my awesome life (:P ) instead I’ll describe you a typical day of my life, where I don’t go to a party, church, travel, or do anything in particular that requires something exciting.

Its summer and I decided,like I do every year, to go to Puerto Rico and visit my family. I haven’t really done anything these days since I have only been here for a week. I’ll tell you what I usually do these days of summer, not what I do when I am in the US, even though they might seem similar.

My typical day usually starts like this:

Entering a New World-Daily Post

  You’re at the airport, your flight is delayed for six more hours, and none of your electronic devices is working. How do you pass the time?

Isn’t it obvious??? Screw phones, computers, and everything!! I would be reading.That ecard on the left is so true about me.

I love writing and blogging(I wouldn’t be able to do that, anyway, nothing works. But who cares!) but if you gave me a whole bunch of books I would say:

Yes, if I had a book I would be mean, so watch out!!

 

Today’s daily post is awesome :D. What would I do if I was stuck in airport for six hours….

The Kindness of Strangers

I have been blessed to have people who are kind to me. I have been blessed many ways. I guess the saying “do to others what you want done to you” is true. I have always been kind to people, even if I am not kind to myself. I have always been kind to people who are kind to me, judge me, love me, or do not even know me. It’s who I am and I will never change. Many things have happened in my life that are not that pleasant and many things have happened in my life that are indeed pleasant. I’m glad to be who I am. Many people have treated me nice while others have not. Sometimes those that are mean to me and their attitudes have hurt me. But, instead of hating, I forgive, let go, and forget the past. Sometimes I think I am the only kind person in the world, to be honest.

Imagine my surprise when some people, that I think are not nice to me or I don’t even know me, are extremely nice to me. I’m kind to people but I never do it to expect something back. So, I still get extremely surprised.

 

Here are some examples:

  • When I didn’t have food people,who didn’t even know that, would just call me and say “I have some food for you. I feel like you need it.”You do not know how much that has helped me.
  • I have low self-esteem. When random people just walk up to me and say “you are beautiful” it makes me feel happy. I am still working on getting my self-esteem high and being happy just the way God created me.
  • Some people who were never nice to me, suddenly are nice to me. They treat me great and tell me that because I was nice to them that changed them.
  • A lot of people ask me for advice. It makes me happy to know that my words touch people’s heart in some way.
  • Someone paying me my food or just treating me nice and smiling at me.

A smile can change everything. I know mine has. I know that I have changed people.

I think I will change the title. A lot of people have been nice to me. A lot, to be honest. But….I have been the stranger who has shown kindness. I’m not bragging here, but I am saying that it makes me happy to know that I have been that stranger who has shown kindness. And because of that I have been extremely blessed.

So this prompt is also one of my most favorites:

When was the last time a stranger did something particularly kind, generous, or selfless for you? Tell us what happened!

Wonders of Memories

That quote is true. We watch the world just passing by and everyone or everything changing. We watch how fast time passes by and we don’t really live the moment. Everything is changing. But behind all those change there are memories that never change. Sweet and alive memories that make you smile or giggle. Or bitter and sad memories that make you never want to live again.

Today’s daily prompt is one of my most favorite ever.

 Which good memories are better — the recent and vivid ones, or those that time has covered in a sweet haze?

I think our life is made up of memories and what we always seem to say is based on our memories. I think that both memories, that the prompt refers too, are good. The recent and vivid ones make us happy and live the moment. They make us be joyful, giggle, laugh, and just be in a trance of utter amazement. Like a first kiss, marriage, having your first child, reading an amazing book, writing your first book, graduation, prom, getting baptized and so on. Those recent and vivid memories are the one’s that simply make you forget about the bad things you are going through.

But what about the one’s that time has covered,not in a sweet haze, but in a bitter and horrible haze? The one’s that make you hurt so bad and cry? Those are the memories that  no one ever wants to think about. The memories that make you be depressed and never want to wake up again. The memories of a divorce, a death of a loved one, someone who you trusted or loved turning their back on you, or the memory of having some sort of accident. The memories of never being accepted or just going through something horrible.

Those are the one’s that no one ever wants to think about. Not, even me. But I came to the conclusion that memories are there for a reason. They never leave your mind or fade away because in some way they have changed our life. Our mind creates memories to think about them and forgive and let go. I have gone through some things that have stayed in my mind and have become memories that hurt my heart when I think about them. But if I decide, if we choose, to stay in the past and think about everything bad that has happened to us then, what happens? We become depressed and sad. These memories are the one’s we have to let go. We can’t live in the past anymore. We have to grasp those vivid memories that have been recent or happened long ago but feel alive and move on.

In some way, all memories are good because they help us grow up and think about what we have done. But, we are the one’s who decide whether we let go or stay in the past. Memories are good and bad but they are part of our life. They are beautiful yet sad. They are happy yet horrible. In the end all we will have left is our memories and those last forever in our hearts. It’s up to us to choose whether we let go and remember or live our whole life in memories.

My Heart Flutters

I was in that summer camp that day

And my heart fluttered

Hi hair was brown and soft

His eyes were blue

His voice was what I liked best

Strong and deep

His smile was crooked but I loved it best that way

He was tall and amazing. The best guy I have ever met

All the girls thought he was wonderful, including me

But in the end he chose me… and I am glad he did

Land of Confusion

Famous-characters-Troll-face-Derp-Derpina-461306

Numbers. Symbols. Letters.

Words that never made sense.

Equations that I will never get.

A jumble of numbers and letters

That would probably never be used in my life

Math is a Land of Confusion for me.

I have never and will never master it

Math is just a subject I will never understand no matter how much I practice.


 

Inspired by the Daily Prompt titled: Land of Confusion. Math was a subject and is a subject I will never understand. Ask me for help and I will just say “Look it up”‘. Math was a nightmare for me. I don’t know how I ever passed that class and got promoted to advanced level when I was in school, I don’t know how but all I know is that I just don’t get it.
