10 Day Challenge: Day 2

So, today (yesterday actually) was day number 2 of the 10 Day Challenge.  The topic for Day 2 is:

Day 2: Nine Things You Can’t Live Without

I could go all materialistic and say nine things that (truth is) I could probably do without.  I’ll try not to do that.

  1. My parents: Even when we don’t get along, I still love them so much that it is hard to envision a time when they wouldn’t be in my life.
  2. My puppy babies: I always thought that I was a cat person, but it has become quite evident over the past 10 years that I’m quite good at being part of “a pack”.
  3. The ability to read: I know that the possibility to go blind or to have some kind of life-altering brain injury could happen, but I can’t imagine being me and being unable to read.
  4. The ability to listen to and appreciate music: For the love of God, I’m not referring to the teenage thing known as the Bieber. I’m talking real soulful or beautiful or life-altering music.  Music that touches the depths of a person either by its message or by the musician’s talent/skill.
  5. My sense of humor: Some people might not think of me as being funny.  I think, though, that they just cannot appreciate my type of wit.  😉
  6. The friends and family that I have that care as much for me as I do for them:This group of people should know who they are, but I don’t know that they know just how much they mean to me.  Whether it’s checking on me when they notice I haven’t been online for a while (for some that’s a day and others a few weeks) or send me a birthday wish or telling a joke on one of those days when I’m just completely blue.  These people are important.  These people matter.  They (you) should know that.
  7. Therapy: The first time I went to therapy, I was 8.  I’m 27 now.  I’m still crazy, and I can’t imagine a time happening where I won’t need therapy in order to make it from day to day.
  8. My fear of slugs: This fear will never go away.  I figure that if it ceases to affect me, then I will cease to be the Janet that most people know and love or, for some, know and loathe.
  9. My fangirl tendencies:I’ve got to be a fangirl.  That’s just who I am.  It’s how I roll.  Like it or lump it, folks!
