I used to chase my brother around and we would feed the ducks with our family at the lake. We’d always go wade in the water and look for rocks to throw in it. We would try to play catch with other kids that came to the lake.
When I was younger, I remember taking my chicken-duck with me everywhere. Now it was funny because I couldn’t decide what it was. That was funny. When I was in first grade, I sang “My Country Tis Of Thee”, my first grade teacher Ms. Sylvester taught me. That was sure fun.
I always had this thought in the back of my mind like I want to teach something. I really just want to help others around me. I know most kids and some adults have a learning disability or have a hard time remembering things they learn. Both really are the case with me; though I still try.
No matter what I always collected seashells. My favorite ones were the white scalloped ones. Occasionally I’d find a light beige one with white on it. Then, I’d also find June bugs and lady bugs would and still do come to me. I guess I thought of it as good luck. (To be continued)🙂
So one day I was thinking how good it would be to be a overcomer of my childhood depression from always being different. I was always told that I was a stuck-up and a know it all. I only wanted to be myself. I did not want to be somebody else. Why would people laugh about me and my odd style. I liked to dress up and look nice myself. I always tried to put my hair up in a low ponytail so I could be different. I even put a bow in sometimes. I liked to wear all kinds of styles of clothes and different colors of shoes, mostly black or white. I didn’t say mean things to other kids or adults, at least if I did I said sorry for it. There were some girls that wore black all the time. I never really got it until my late Jr high years that they really wanted to be different. However some of them became my friends; until I moved away and found some that were even better because they were like half sisters that were still connected despite all their differences. They were really best friends and they added me to their circle. I felt so popular. It was almost like it was never going to change only in bits and pieces of my life. Now the new ones I had were funny one liked country music, the other liked rock more. I bet they had some interesting days picking on each other. It was boys against girls in a way, just a funny game we played and no harm. (To be continued)
Ways To Help others. Community kindness projects. Most people really do appreciate help and time others will spend to help them with house or yard projects. Some examples of projects that could be done are cleaning yards of trash, weeds, or sticks; cleaning dead tree limbs that are within reach, watering flowers, and cleaning gutters, sidewalks, and then hedge or bush trimming; along with flower trimming if the person has flowers. Drains could also be cleaned. If the person has a small house, they might like to get small flowers or hang some by their patio room if they have one by their back door. It would make a calm atmosphere. Plants clear out the air also, so they promote health.
I really think vegetable gardens should be planted near older folks places, because that would be a place for them to walk outside and get excercise picking up the veggies. Even planting them would be some excercise and outside time. 🙂🙂
Hello everyone I’m Lisa. I like to read and write when I can. I like to keep learning new things. Also I enjoy art too. My favorite art is scenery arts, then glass.
Why do this?
- Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
- Because it will help you focus your own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.
The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.
To help you get started, here are a few questions:
- Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
- What topics do you think you’ll write about?
- Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
- If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?
You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.
Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.
When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
