Once in a while I sit down to write a post and find that everything has fallen out of my head. It’s quite annoying really, because I often can’t write at the very times when writing would probably provide the best distraction from all the dementedness….
I’ve seen a lot of bloggers taking part in ‘thirty days of truth’ – I always enjoy reading ‘thirty days’ posts so I thought I might give it a go for myself. Perhaps it will give me something to write about on the days when the only thing I can think of to say is ‘ummm’….
I’m not going to answer the questions in order, by the way. I’ve written 1-30 on thirty pieces of paper and I’m going to pick one at random whenever I decide to do a thirty days of truth post. I’m setting myself a little challenge, y’see, to do something in the wrong order even though it is probably going to do my head in …. because I’m a crazy kid when it comes down to it.
So here are the thirty days of truth – I’ll add hyperlinks to this page as I go along.
Day 01 → Something you hate about yourself.
Day 02 → Something you love about yourself.
Day 03 → Something you have to forgive yourself for.
Day 04 → Something you have to forgive someone for.
Day 05 → Something you hope to do in your life.
Day 06 → Something you hope you never have to do.
Day 07 → Someone who has made your life worth living for.
Day 08 → Someone who made your life hell, or treated you like shit.
Day 09 → Someone you didn’t want to let go, but just drifted.
Day 10 → Someone you need to let go, or wish you didn’t know.
Day 11 → Something people seem to compliment you the most on.
Day 12 → Something you never get compliments on.
Day 13 → A band or artist that has gotten you through some tough ass days. (write a letter.)
Day 14 → A hero that has let you down. (letter)
Day 15 → Something or someone you couldn’t live without, because you’ve tried living without it.
Day 16 → Someone or something you definitely could live without.
Day 17 → A book you’ve read that changed your views on something.
Day 18 → Your views on gay marriage.
Day 19 → What do you think of religion? Or what do you think of politics?
Day 20 → Your views on drugs and alcohol.
Day 21 → (scenario) Your best friend is in a car accident and you two got into a fight an hour before. What do you do?
Day 22 → Something you wish you hadn’t done in your life.
Day 23 → Something you wish you had done in your life.
Day 24 → Make a playlist to someone, and explain why you chose all the songs. (Just post the titles and artists and letter)
Day 25 → The reason you believe you’re still alive today.
Day 26 → Have you ever thought about giving up on life? If so, when and why?
Day 27 → What’s the best thing going for you right now?
Day 28 → What if you were pregnant or got someone pregnant, what would you do?
Day 29 → Something you hope to change about yourself. And why.
Day 30 → A letter to yourself, tell yourself EVERYTHING you love about yourself.
I’ll see you on the other side!
Lots of love from WeeGee
PS – today I got over ‘ummm’ by telling you what I’m going to do the next time ‘ummm’ strikes. Genius huh?

Quite an interesting writing prompt. I think I will give it a chance, maybe I will be able to complete it and anyhow, it will be a good way of distraction for me.
Brave and brilliant idea.
I think I might give it a go as well. Although I wouldn’t want to do them in order either (I’m weird like that) but I wouldn’t want to do them randomly… I thought about doing them backwards but I didn’t like the last one – writing a letter to yourself saying everything you love about yourself. Ummm. Or perhaps I *should* start with that one and get a hard one out of the way. Eesh I’m already having trouble and I haven’t even started! Lol
I take it back. I’m not going to do it backwards because then the last one I’d be doing is what I hate about myself :/. Suppose I could just do it the ordinary way and do it in order 😉
I’m looking forward to reading your answers lovely xx
I’ve been doing them slowly since January. I’ve been doing about 2-3 a month almost. I’ve still got 2 left, haha. I’ve decided that I must finish by the end of this month. I don’t think it would be a good idea for me to do such an extensive challenge anymore, lol. A shorter one maybe. But if I commit to something, I’m darn well going to finish it. So I will finish the truthin’.
This is very brave of you, WeeGee. I might even join you at the start of October as I know I would benefit from thinking through a few of these… After you!! 😀
Some of them look a bit gruelling don’t they? Still, as you say I think it might do me some good to think about them xx
Looking forward to reading these WeeGee, a good idea! Although some of the things that you have to write about scare me, so I think I’ll have to give it a miss, at least for now! xx
I know. I just read them all again and wondered what I was thinking signing up! I’ll give it a go – it’ll probably take me forever to finish anyway!
I’m way too lazy to do one of those =)
I fear that I may be too ….. Time will tell!
I think I got up to about day 21 and haven’t done any for months I couldn’t do them out of order though. That would make my brain hurt! xox
Some of them are tough aren’t they. My brain threatens to explode when things are in the wrong order. I’m either provoking it or teaching it a valuable lesson!
Haha this comment made me laugh 🙂
I’ve often thought of going through with one of those but… I’m a commitment phobe… I’d give up half way through or something Do they have to be done on consecutive days? xx
I’ve no intention of doing it on consecutive days. I’m just going to dip in and out. I did the thirty day song challenge on Facebook lasy year. It took me about three months to complete!
Hmm fair enough. I think I’ll give it a miss whilst I’m still posting so much on a daily basis about what I’m going through lol. I’m sure I inundate people as it is! 😉 Good luck and look forward to reading your answers. The questions look good 🙂 xx
Well. You know me :-p
yes genius! 😀 Hey are you feeling better today from your migraine?
