Recipe to Life: 2014 Blogger Challenge

Good evening everyone!

Today for the 2014 blogger challenge we are supposed to be writing a post about meals. I have been really busy lately and totally forgot about photographing any of my meals whatsoever! But I have decided recipes have something to do with meals (can’t make a meal without one!) So then a recipe to life is sorta related, right? ;) So here is my recipe to MY life, although YOURS might be a little bit different!

1.      Love your family

I know what you’re thinking. Olivia, that is harder than just writing it. Trust me, I know! I argue with my lil sis an awful lot, but ultimately I know I would do anything for her and love her to bits. The same goes with anyone in my family!

2.      Make a friend (or in my case, a couple)

Having best friends are important! They are awesome for hanging with, talking to and always there for you! I have three absolutely best friends here in this country, and one all the way in my home country.

3.      Read

Yeah, I don’t care whether you love reading or hate it, I think everyone should at least try it out once! I live inside books, each one taking me through a different life and leaving me different when I crawl back out in the end. Everyone deserves this awesome experience at least once!

4.      Write (or sing, or dance, or whatever makes you happy) Find an online community for this too!

I love to write And that’s just one of my hobbies! I have others too, but the main thing here is to find a hobby you love and go do it! Who’s gonna stop you? Also, find other people who love it too! I have an online community (Young Writers Society) who are all well, writers, and I don’t think I’ve come across a single un-awesome person on there yet! You like basketball? Join a team! Like dancing? Join a dance crew!

5.      Travel
It’s awesome to see other lands than the ones you are from or living in. Recently I went to Cyprus and that was just great! Make sure you see a little of different lands too, and really dig into that culture ;)

6.      Waste time (whether sleeping, surfing the web or watching movies and shows, I don’t care!)

My fave way to do this is movies and shows. But I think everyone deserves lazy time to kick back and relax. The best thing to do after a chaotic day!

7.      Make a bucketlist and go out there and do it.

I love dreaming of things to do, and then going and actually doing it! The best feeling is crossing things off as well. Here’s my bucket list in motion, I still need to add a few things!

8.      Go to school

Sometimes I hate this, but I feel blessed to have an education, really. And I am going to work harder at it as well. There is so much to learn, so many different ways to think… Sometimes it’s kinda hard to cram it all in there, but I can understand why they do this to us.

9.      Do something you don’t want to do (it means you can work through anything)

As said, when you get through something you really don’t want to do, it means you can really work through anything. So, whether it be chores or getting over a fear, go do it!

10.   Don’t be optimistic or pessimistic, be an opportunist

Last but not least, I know it’s impossible to be happy all the time, and thinking for the best. It’s also really depressing to be negative all the time. I went through my pessimistic period and made it my New Years Resolution to change this, and I am glad I managed to! Be an opportunist! When opportunity sneaks around, go for it! 

Olivia’s Question: What would be on your recipe for life?

  1. I enjoyed this, very informative and I really liked the last part GO opportunist! lol.
    I look forward to more of your post. Thanks!

    1. Glad you enjoyed this! Thanks for reading :)

  2. I really really loved what you did with this topic! Really smart change! I should probably start my bucket list.

    1. Thanks ;) You should go ahead and try it, it's loads of fun!

  3. Cessy again, this was amazing I like how you are really open to your feelings on this blog.

  4. I totally have a bucket list and try mark off one thing once or twice a year.

  5. I love this post, made me smile a lot! I haven't wrote a bucket list before, but maybe I should so that I have things to actually try and accomplish.

  7. I really loved four and seven, especially seven. I like to make lists of everything I want to do, it just feels so good when you cross things off. We once did something like this in class but after we put all the ingredients we made the actual recipe: mix love with time until golden brown, then bake for ten minutes to create friendship, and stuff like that. This wasn't really a recipe, these were ingrediants for a recipe. Maybe you should have called it ingrediants for my life recipe or put a quick part at the end where you mix and bake everything, that would've been really cute!

    1. Haha nice idea! Maybe something for you to try for your own blog. I wonder what is on your bucketlist?
