Friendly Fill-Ins Week 138

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 138

I again participate in the Friendly Fill-Ins, hosted by Four-LeggedFurballs and 15andmeowing. So here we go:

1. Looking back, I wish I wouldn’t have taken many things so personally, because it often made me feel hurt. But it’s never to late to change things!

2. A big cup of caffe latte is a treat I give to myself. At least once a day.
3. A new skill I want to learn is how to deal with Windows 10. I am very proud that I know at least the basics where our router, my laptop or mobile phone are concerned, so I need to stay informed.

4. One bad habit I want to stop is eating so much sweets. Once I start I can’t stop *sigh*.

  1. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I feel the same about #1 🙂 I am the same way with sweets. Happy New Year! Have a nice weekend! XO

  2. It can be very difficult to fight a sweet tooth! My daddy had one something fierce. He never got overweight, though. He was just regular sized for a man. He loved sweets and always made sure our kids had them, too. 🙂

    I need to learn not to take things personally, too, including things that are meant to be hurtful. And, you’re right, it is never too late to change things. As long as we’re breathing, we can work on changing our thought patterns.

    Have a blessed Sunday and week!

    1. A sweet tooth can be really hard to deal with… But I have to deal with it because of prediabetes *sigh*.
      I never will understand those people who really want to hurt others, even though I am no saint myself.
      Change is always possible, and I am very glad for this!
      Have a blessed Sunday!

      1. I’m sorry that you have prediabetes. When I was a little girl, I fainted several times. The doctor told Mama that I was borderline diabetic. Nothing ever became of it, though, and I’ve never been diagnosed with diabetes since then either. Goodness knows I’m at risk for it with the extra weight I have on me.

        I’m no saint either and I know that I’ve caused hurt over the years. With very rare exceptions, it was unintentional. Those intentional times, I am very ashamed of. They were in retaliation of hurt caused me, but that doesn’t justify it at all.

        I am glad that change is possible, too. Best wishes to you on your journey.

        Have a blessed day. 🙂

      2. When I tried to hurt other people, it was more like lashing out and I feel very badly about it (even though I was often told all is forgiven). I already got better at dealing with this, and I hope it stays this way.
        I know some people who live with diabetes, and it’s good to see they can live happy, productive lives. But I hope to keep it at bay with my lifestyle.
        I wish you the best on your journey through life, too.

      3. I hope that it never fully turns into diabetes for you. Living and eating healthy can help to prevent it. Keep up the good work!

        I think that it is very human to lash out when someone has hurt us. We just have to be able to control our emotions rather than our emotions having control over us. That can be very hard in the heat of the moment. I am glad that you were able to overcome this!

        Have a blessed weekend. 🙂

  3. Thank you for joining in on the Friendly Fill-Ins! I know what you mean about those sweets. I used to have a lot of trouble with self-control when it came to sweets. A couple years ago, though, I developed intolerances to a variety of ingredients commonly found in sweets, and after that I was forced to start learning far better self-control. I still indulge sometimes, but I can far more easily so no these days. I hope your 2019 has thus far been happy and healthy!

    1. Self control is the key, I hope I will learn to get some. But sometimes my life is so busy I can’t concentrate on it, because other things come first.
      Right now, my husband and me suffer from a nasty cold. Hopefully we will be better in a few days!
