A blog post re-share, about those that choose to be alone. The benefits of being alone and how we improve our self-esteem. It’s a personal journey for those that choose to live alone and coming across this post in my reader, because I follow this blog. I found this blog post a great, inspirational read. It is nice to read someone else’s positive perspectives on living alone.

Culture is not one thing. It's Everything.

Hello Everyone and Welcome to JGC Blog.

Blog post share: “Reclaiming my time,” by Black Burgundy.

During my blogging break, I came across this post, “Reclaiming my time,” by Black Burgundy. I can relate to this post, due to when I was totally on social media one time many years ago, when I was in my 20’s and this is why I share this post. This is also why I was always wary about Facebook when I came back again, some years ago, but a lot had changed since then and I wasn’t like that now, as I was then.
I came back to Facebook, because of a nail course I was doing at the time, that encouraged us to go there. If it wasn’t for that, I would not have been back and this is why again, I can relate to the blog post I am sharing.
Although Black Burgundy’s post refers to more than just Facebook, I am only talking about Facebook because that was all I used one time, besides when I blog here. I don’t feel the pressure to post on my blog, compared to the different pressures with Facebook and because I have changed so much and I don’t rely on Facebook, I can easily hate Facebook.

When I was away from Facebook even more less, (if it couldn’t get any lesser, it did,) I felt the calmness again.
I was thinking of originally going on it just once a month and then reviewing how I felt about it 3 or 4 months down the line, ignoring my gut instinct to closing it down. But in the end, I wasn’t going to ignore my gut instinct and with the annoying chain/spam messages I received again, I called it a day and closed down my Facebook account.

Day 27 of the #blurtselfcareathon – Dream

It’s nice to have dreams. We know they may never come true, but I is nice to dream them, isn’t it?

So… What is my dream?

My dream would be, if I was very lucky to win the lottery, or be in a position without winning, to buy a bungalow. A two bed would do. My mum could come and live with me, if she wanted. Owning a bungalow feels like a big dream that might not happen. But it is nice to hope and dream all the same.

On a realistic level, my dream is to one day be in a council property. Although I am looking at ground floor as well as first floor, if I got a ground, then brilliant. But getting a council property in my chosen area, would be really nice.

What is your dream?
