Today I'd like you to post your favourite feel good song. Rachel Platten has a few good ones but this is my fave;



1) If there was one thing you could change about yourself right now, what would it be?

2) What advice would you give to your younger self?

3) If your home was on fire and you had enough time to save three things, what would they be?

4) What was the one experience that changed your life?

5) What was the best phase of your life?

Here's a feel good song that's a classic:

My weekends are boring, I'm not that interesting. lol

1) If there was one thing you could change about yourself right now, what would it be?
To be more confident.

2) What advice would you give to your younger self?
Don't be afraid to do what you want in life.

3) If your home was on fire and you had enough time to save three things, what would they be?
Photo albums, poems that I wrote, and wallet.

4) What was the one experience that changed your life?
I can't pinpoint just one, there's been a lot.

5) What was the best phase of your life?
I'm not sure, don't think I've reached it yet.

Good morning @Champagne and SF friends. Thanks for tagging me and opening. Weird dreams last night and I remember them so I feel kind of shaken. Look forward to relaxing this weekend. Hope you're all doing well.

1) If there was one thing you could change about yourself right now, what would it be?

More energy, less annoyed with some co-workers.

2) What advice would you give to your younger self?

Move slower, time goes fast. Be careful who you marry.

3) If your home was on fire and you had enough time to save three things, what would they be?

Cats, picture albums, mothers ashes in turn.

4) What was the one experience that changed your life?

Living in a group home as a teenager and being connected with other children there.i wonder about them now still.

5) best phase of my life?
Maybe as a child, when you have no worries.
Being with my own children as babies.

Hi @Champagne, thanks for the tag :)

My favourite feel good song is actually my SF username - Sunspots by Julian Cope.


I don't have any plans for the weekend. We're going away for a few days on Monday so I need to pack for that. If the weather is okay there's a few jobs that I could get on with in the garden.

1) If there was one thing you could change about yourself right now, what would it be?
I'd be 2 or 3 clothes sizes slimmer.

2) What advice would you give to your younger self?
Follow your dreams instead of being too scared to be on your own. To be honest it's probably the same advice I should follow now..

3) If your home was on fire and you had enough time to save three things, what would they be?
My dog, my phone (my whole life is on there) and my photos. I'd probably have to run back in to save my vinyl collection too.

4) What was the one experience that changed your life?
Becoming a mother.

5) What was the best phase of your life?
The four years after having my first child. We lived in a beautiful picture perfect English cottage near the sea that I'd spent several years renovating to get it exactly how I wanted. My friends were close by and we'd spend our summers on the beach with our kids or in each others gardens. We moved away 20 years ago when my children were 2 and 4. I still feel homesick.

I'd love to read your poems. Perhaps they're personal, I get that. It must take concentration to write poems @Champagne?

3.) my two cats, and one of my guitars (I guess it really doesn’t even matter which one!) . . .

5.) probably my thirties; things eventually, “evened out,” despite - well, let’s keep it light..;)

4.) coaching speech in high school (or at that level) I now know what it feels like to be a ‘rock star!’ (It’s one thing to do it, yourself, as a competitor... but when you’re responsible for the success of other’s; everything changes, —& well: they taught me a ton__.)~*•> (;

1) No mental illness
2) Trust your instincts - it's not judgmental to not give Everyone a chance
3) Oh shit....I have 3 kids ... or are we assuming the people are okay? My creations (I make jewelry and stuff out of bones and found objects), my photos, my clothes
4) Getting with my ex. It ruined everything for years even after I left him.
5) probably the year I left home... and hopefully now? Things are looking up.

Good afternoon. I am taking a break from work. I like that about working at home. My weekend will be boring but one never knows.

1) If there was one thing you could change about yourself right now, what would it be?

To be thinner and more active

2) What advice would you give to your younger self?

You are loved and accepted for who you by many people just because you are you.

3) If your home was on fire and you had enough time to save three things, what would they be?

My cats, wallet and phone. I never thought I would want my phone before as a top choice.

4) What was the one experience that changed your life?

Being a mom. Best and worst experience. What a roller-coaster.

5) What was the best phase of your life?
When my daughter was young, I was in my 30's and I was happy because I couldn't do anything but live in the moment.

Hey guys and thank you @Champagne

Have you any special plans for the weekend? What does your typical weekend include?

Beach and gardening. For me there’s no difference between weekdays and weekends.

Today I'd like you to post your favourite feel good song.
I heard this one a few minutes ago. One of my favourites.


If there was one thing you could change about yourself right now, what would it be?
I don’t think I want to change anything. I’m totally comfortable with who and how I am.

What advice would you give to your younger self?
“Always take care of yourself first” sounds appropriate. But I wouldn’t listen to me anyway lol.

If your home was on fire and you had enough time to save three things, what would they be?
Phone, laptop and my bag with credit cards and important stuff in it.

What was the one experience that changed your life?
I fell in love.

What was the best phase of your life?
I think I’m living it now.

Tysm for the tag @Champagne & for opening the cafe :) I tag @Kiwi2016 @Blue Star & @Kira think the rest of the regulars were already tagged :p Don't have anything planned for the weekend at all but I am fine with that. My weekends are usually pretty boring or at least "uneventful" overall but again that is fine I have no attachments to needing a bunch of people around me to constantly be demanding my attention, would be kinda exhausting overall I think (would basically ONLY enjoy the getting attention from others part of it, but the rest? Heck no!)

1) If there was one thing you could change about yourself right now, what would it be?
Wow sure hard to pick just 1 thing but ok I would def. change my eye color cos then I'd have tons of friends, be extremely popular, successful, worshipped, loved & adored by a LOT of people of both genders like my sis is. Would absolutely have a much better & happier life I think. People can say I'm "crazy" to think such a thing all they want but I know that is the way of it.

2) What advice would you give to your younger self?

Don't worry or care so much about what people think, just cos someone does something it does NOT automatically mean they are doing it for the same reasons as I would be, same goes for what they say. That was a DAMN hard learned lesson that's for sure wow.

3) If your home was on fire and you had enough time to save three things, what would they be?

If this doesn't include living beings like my cat then the 3 items as in non-living/object things then they'd be my pillow, my purse & my redwoods pinecones. Really hope if that were ever to really happen that I would never have to make such a choice though lol.

4) What was the one experience that changed your life?

Had a lot more than "one" of course but hmm I guess something fairly recent was just extremely unwisely trusting a person based only on what they said rather than what they did or actual proof in some way that they meant the words they said. Anyway will absolutely not be happening ever again that is for DAMN sure!!! :)

5) What was the best phase of your life?

I guess when I lived alone the 2nd time which was for 3 years between 2008-2011. I didn't really like living alone but compared to all the other living situations it was the best and most peaceful one when I was able to distract myself enough. I had the least amount of suicidal thoughts overall during that part of my life too.

1) If there was one thing you could change about yourself right now, what would it be? The all-consuming mental anguish has got to go already. Slam the gas pedal on it.

2) What advice would you give to your younger self? You are capable of so much more than you think

3) If your home was on fire and you had enough time to save three things, what would they be? Pictures, my dad's chair, and I guess my phone.

4) What was the one experience that changed your life? Gotta defer this one

5) What was the best phase of your life? Childhood

*woohooLets hit it!!

Good evening everyone. I hope you all have had a good day. It's been a tad up and down for me. I felt sad this morning. Noo reason for it. Just felt sad. I do feel somewhat happier now, although I must say, I am worried about my friend Avo. Work was very draininng, mostly because I was concerned about Avos allergic reaction, and then because I was alone doing a few different people's jobs at once.

1) If there was one thing you could change about yourself right now, what would it be?
There are a few things I could change, but I can't decide whether it is my self confidence or my emotional response to everything. They both bother me at times. I am fed up of crying for everything, but I also wish I could be more confident in myself.

2) What advice would you give to your younger self?
Forgive yourself. Its the hardest thing you will ever do, and while you shouldn't blame yourself, remember you are human too, and you will get through it.

3) If your home was on fire and you had enough time to save three things, what would they be?
My daughter, honestly, I cannot think of anything else. Its all just material, that can be replaced, my daughter can't
4) What was the one experience that changed your life?
It was a negative one. It had a very big impact on my self worth, my esteem confidence. It was majorly the cause of my depression and suicidal feelings.

5) What was the best phase of your life?
I am now in my best phase. I'm not depressed, and I can't really remember a time where I was happy. I am happy now. I get sad times, like today, and I get happy days. I'm not an optimistic person, I always look for the bad things before I consider the good, but I'm seeing more good before I see the bad.

Have a good night guys, take care.
