When I am at extreme anxiety, I love the time of year when I can plant a garden. I love the ones I plant that are already in bloom, I love watching the seedlings that I collect each year from my Zinnias and Marigolds as they sprout and grow. Then I have my Perennials that come back every year that are not flowers. Ferns, Hostas and a gamble on the Lantanas. I adore seeing the Butterflies and Dragonflies as they fly about and pick where they will land. I even have a Hummingbird that visits here. lol. The renewal of life in these beautiful flowers gives me a renewal of hope. Have a great day/evening where ever you are! 🙂
I am good, kind and loving.
I am angry ,frustrated and confused.
I am artistic, an empath and I feel emotions.
I am a lover of Nature and despise the abuse of animals.
I am loyal, devoted and true.
I am short tempered, easy to hurt and quick to strike back.
i am a survivor of abuse and I have learned to survive after loss.
I am me. Many things good and equally bad. But I am human so it is as it is.
I see your heart in all that you do. I see it in your giving , your caring for others and your smile that tries to brighten everyone’s day. I see it in so many ways and it. Is. Beautiful.
Today I am going to the huge Farmer’s Market I go to about once a year. They have everything! Exotic foods( not where they torture anything, my animal obsession could not handle that) Olives from all other, unique vegetables and an assortment of spices, bakery goods, foods to sample and just so much! It is like the Festival for food lovers! So excited! What are All of you doing okay? Have a great day/evening wherever you are!
It is hard to be an Empath/ Discerner and if you are one you know it can be. I have battled so many emotions knowing what I felt was right, holding others pain or hurt and trying to deal with it. The hardest part for me is knowing what is being said or battling toxic people or emotional vampires. I have been called crazy, living in a dark place was said a few times and so many things. I was told I was just trying to cause fights and so much. I thought maybe I WAS crazy. But today changed the playing field for me. I was driving two people somewhere and they got on the subject of honesty. I went into wondering about going crazy because these people kept saying I was because they NEVER said anything about me. The can of worms exploded. I was told to fear not, I am far from crazy and that was cruel what had been done to me. Everything I had thought was repeated to me. Things said about me, the stabbing behind my back, the hate toward me. I should have been upset but I was elated to FINALLY. Have validity that it was true! I am not crazy and the Pit of Vipers had been doing it all along. This was a long write for me but I just had to share !
As many of you know, I have issues with Anxiety and being an Empath/ Discerner on top of that can be hard. It has taken a lot of tears, breakdowns, sadness and depression during this past year to really evaluate some things. But I have also become stronger. I have learned, to a degree how to control the feeling of others hurt, wrath, pain and out right attempts to punish me for what I believe in. What I HAVE learned is that the stress brought on an Ulcer and I HAVE to let go of some things. It is a true struggle only Empaths / Discerners can understand as to why it is so hard but I am just throwing positive thoughts into my mind everyday. I am learning to stop listening or to stop reading emails, or texts or anything designed to cause me upset. It is VERY hard but I am learning and that is what matters. Have a great day/evening where ever your are fellow bloggers!
I fell asleep early so of course i was wide awake at 4:30 a.m. Normally I would try and go back to sleep but today I just got up and decided to make the best of it. I am glad I did. I watched from my window as the cats played in the early morning dew. Chasing what I am not sure but it was funny to watch. I got my morning Java and walked outside to hear birds singing, a comfortable coolness in the air and I saw some early flowers that are starting to open. It was a nice way to start the day. Have a great day/evening where ever you may be! 🙂
It is not about the choice of their gender for me. It is about committing a crime and then being allowed to choose which Prison you want. i am sorry but we have been getting soft for too long. When a person commits a crime, they are sent to Prison for punishment so why allow them to choose what prison they want? Do we open a fashion store for them next? This has and is all getting out of hand. IF you choose to commit crimes and go to prison, there should be no allotment for where you go. Just my thoughts.
I have been reading your stuff, looking at photos and so on. Then it just popped in my head (happens a lot) that even though I have anxiety, why is it called a mental illness? I think it should be an emotional illness. Even though emotions come from the mind, it is still an emotional reaction from our souls I believe and our hearts. I have extreme emotion which at times causes anxiety but it is because I am too loyal, too loving and I think deeply. But my anxiety comes from my heart and soul so I call it an emotional illness not mental. Just me of course in my ranting thought s during reading. Now I am back to reading. lol. 🙂
Today is a fave day for me. I take a break and go and read as many as I can fit in without speed rushing through them. There are just so many wonderful, deep, real, loving, angry,funny, sad, happy Blogs to choose from. I love our World Press family!
