What I did for my mom today.

img_2081


Today is Mother’s Day it is also the day of the sporting life 10km run. I was unable to do the typical breakfast in bed because we had to get up at 6:30 to get to the run on time. So for my family Mother’s Day activities started at 11:00. We made my mom lunch and cleaned up after it. Then we all gave her gifts. I wrote my mom a nice card saying; 

Dear mom,

I love you. Thanks for always being there for me and being someone who I am always able to rely on. Thanks for getting up at the crack of dawn to drive me to swim practice and other sport practices. Thanks for being understanding when I do stupid things. Thanks for always being the shoulder I can cry on, and listening when I have random melt downs. Thanks for being noise and caring about what’s happening in my life. Thanks for pushing to do things I might not have wanted to do. Thanks for being the best mom. I love you soooo much and no one in the world is able to replace you.

Love Olivia ❤️

Yes I know that there is a typo and I said noise instead of nice. My mom said it wouldn’t be the same if there wasn’t one. So it was ok in the end. I also got her a chocolate bar, not the nice candy size ones, I got here a baking sized milk chocolate bar. I did this because the week before my brother had ate her chocolate bar so I thought I should replace it and then add some. 

Tonight for diner my family and my cousins family are going to my grandparents place. Us grand kids are incharge of making dinner. My sister is on vegetables (asparagus and carrots and potatos) , my brother is on protein (Salmon), I am on dessert (strawberry short cake), my 3 cousins have to make salad, apitizers, and another vegetable. Hopefully everything works out and it all tastes good.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and don’t forget to tell your mom you love them.

Do we thank our moms enough?

Our moms are the reason we are here today. They help shape our personalities and tell us what is wrong and right. Take Mother’s Day as an opportunity to do the think for your mom that she does for you the other 364 days of the year. Tell you mom as many times as possible through today that you love here. You only ever get one mom so make sure your’s knows just how much she means to you. You don’t need to spend a lot of money to tell her how important she is. Moms appreciate the thought behind the gift more than the actual gift its self.

To all the moms reading this, you are important to everyone that you touch. You are the center of our world, the sun that we rotate around. Know that everything you do has help make someone who they are today.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and I hope you have a good Mother’s Day.

The hidden talents of the shyest people

the_quietest_people-50679

Thank you to @etherealpens for the inspiration to write this blog. This is about the shy kids also often know as the quiet ones and the special talents they will bring to a friend group.

In every group of friend there are multiple personalities that will be floating around. Every group tends to have a; social butterfly, and overly organized person, the ‘mom’ of the group, the overly energetic one, and the quiet one. This article is about the 3 most important and special qualities that the quiet one bring to the group.

1. The best listener

Within a friend group people will have a variety of different opinions and will sometimes get in fights. This is where the shy/quiet friend fits in they are the one who will listen to your side of the story. Often times they have listened to both sides. They are the person who will let you rant and who you can count on not to repeat what you have said. They are always there for you so don’t forget to use them when ever they are needed.

2. Amazing words of advice

Shy/Quiet people are thinking all the time. The reason they aren’t talking right now is probably because they are lost in some deep train of thought. Due to there amazing listening skills when you are asking for advice about something they have probably heard both sides of the story. They are deep thinkers and will ask you question about the situation that you haven’t even thought about. They will help you see the situation through different perspectives. They will let you take a step back and look at the problem in a different light. They will also help you solve it your self with the help from there thought provoking questions.

3. The first person to approach you when you are having a bad day

Just because someone is quiet/shy doesn’t mean that they don’t know what is going around them. Often times shy people are big observes they and will notice the smallest details. They tend to pick up on habits that people have depending on their mood. They will notice a nervous twilling of hair or picking of nails. They notice what people do and if someone who normally is very involved in group conversations is a small bit less involved they tend to notice. The best part about them is they understand that when you are having an off day you don’t want to bring attention to it. When they ask you they will often do it in a quiet manor leaving you in control of how much attention is brought to the problem.

Imspiring Quotes and Mottos

These are some of my favourite quotes and life mottos; 

You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take ~ Wayne Gretzky 

Most people immediately refer this quote to hockey after reading who it is by but this quote refers to life in general. Every potential for growth or chance you get is a shot. It gives you the opportunity to my new connections and improve upon new of old skills. Every “shot” you don’t take makes you miss a chance to build your character and further explore who you are as a person.

You are not ahead of me you are just in my way. ~ students in my Chemistry class

This is my new life motto. To me the meaning of this saying is you are your own person and you are able to be the best. You are not always going to be the smartest, prettiest or most athletic person in the area, but everyone who is “better” than isn’t ahead of you they are just an obstacle that you need to go around so that you can become the best you possible.

When nothing goes right go left ~ unknown 

That is the quote or it could be your new motto that I am going to leave you with.

Who am I?

img_2019-2

So I guess if you are reading this you are wondering who I am. My name is Olivia I am a 16 year old girl, I have a twin sister who is 7 minutes younger than me. I have a brother who is 2 years younger than me. I have a dog named Max his is a chocolate brown labradoodle and is 7 years old. I am an avid reader and myfavourite school subjects are math, chemistry and physics. I am not the biggest fan of writing and eniglish. Now you are probably wondering why I desised to start a blog if I don’t like writing. To be honest I don’t really know. I guess I wanted somewhere where I could put down my thoughts, and a journal seemed pointless because no one is going to read it so I decided to write my journal online. This blog is basically a journal that I am sharing with other people who will be able to help me. And that is all I have to say.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.
