I forgot to give my niece her keys after I had checked on a pet at her grooming Salon and she lives an hour from me sooooo I get home at 12 and yay, there they are. so, I had to turn around and go all of the way back. Anyway, I was close to home around 2 a.m. and coming up the road I saw movement and looked over and saw this huge cat. I slowed down and since no one was behind I pulled to the side of the road. I looked and saw this huge cat just staring as it sat. I was so tired I thought maybe I was imagining it until it moved again. I was in awe but not enough to get out and try to get a pic. This thing was huge. I never even knew we had them here. It looked like the one on the left.
Last weekend a car slammed into my back and it was scary. It got me to thinking about how our Country is in a spin right now and how everything seems to be falling apart sometimes. But I was reading some about the Depression, life in the 1800’s and other things to try and find things we can still be grateful for. I found so many but here are some I often take for granted. A hot shower with plenty of soap and shampoo. There was a time when water was boiled over a pot once a week (If you were lucky) and you had to bathe from that along with several other people. I have food. Lot’s of choices. Stores, farmer’s markets, Farms and so many places and choices. I read where at one time people would eat rotted potatoes, vegetables or anything that would keep them alive. I have Medical care and access to Antibiotics on things that used to kill people when a simple pill could have helped them. So I see things in a better view that for now, for today we are still so blessed. Have a great day/evening wherever you are!
Our smallest kitten is a bully. Yes, she is a very big bully for such a small tot. She slaps our Pomeranian which I scold her for but she doesn’t care. she hoards the toys and steals them from the other kitten. She steals all of the lap time even though we make her share that time, it is a battle to keep her from trying to push them off. Yes, I never imagined I would have a bully in my own home. lol. Have a great evening/day wherever you may be!
I never had a home that I grew up in for years with friends that I kept and still know. We moved around several times a year and I often wonder when I hear others talk about it what that would have been like. It seems like a Fairytale to me. Not to say that I was not happy but it just never gave me the chance to bond those friendships. I remember some homes we had that I loved and I have family we visited often when we lived in another state. Just when I was talking to someone the other day and listening about their home and how they grew up, I thought, “wow, that sounds so wonderful!” All in all, I learned many things moving around, I got to see many different States in our beautiful Country and it made me adjust to change which is ironic because now I have to force myself from a rigid routine BUT I just wish maybe sometimes I had that to reflect on. Life as a child drifter. Lol. Have a great day/evening wherever you are!
I want to be able to spread a little scatter of Sunshine of love to everyone. So much is going on and so much chaos in the World right now. We need scatters of Sunshine and love to throw around to everyone! Just a touch of love to someone even if it just holding someone’s hand, being there, a text or a call. Anything to show some happy could mean the World to someone so for me, I will try and scatter some around today and throwing some to whomever reads this! Have a beautiful day/ night wherever you are!
I think it should be a personal choice. Some people get them and still get the virus. Some want it and some don’t. I don’t care either way. It should be a matter of choice for each individual. I believe this because there are pros and cons to both. You can still get it even if you have the shots and you can get it if you don’t. What I do not like is being bullied if you choose not to. I have read so many different reports on it that one say’s if you have low immunity for example, it probably will not work. Another has stories of people getting it and coming down from other diseases or things they never had before. It is a Gumbo of information but either way it should be, in my humble opinion, a personal choice.
I started my journey a couple of months ago by letting go of really toxic people whom, every time I was around them they were mentally abusive or just spewed anger and hate or they would just constantly berate me and then say they were kidding. Being an Empath was hard because I absorbed it. It landed me in the Hospital and I decided it was time to let go no matter who they were or how much I loved them. I had no choice. It has proven to be the hardest but best thing I could do. My stress and anxiety decreased. I could recharge myself and I have been happier. I recently had an encounter with one of them and it was eye opening! I felt immediately stressed, they started to try and use their ways of pain again but I bailed out and after a few shaky hours found peace again. Lesson learned. Sometimes you DO have to LET THEM GO. Hugs!
Now that I am getting back on my feet I will get back to some Yoga. How can something so calming and relaxing be so painful? However, all joking aside, it is painful when you are doing certain poses but it makes your body so much better after and the calming effects of it are just wonderful. I have to be honest that I STILL have not become friends with downward dog and maybe I never will but it does help. So, Yoga lovers untie today! Every attempt is success and everyday of getting through some is so good for your health! Have a great day/evening where ever you are!
I was feeling great, getting back to writing and then woke over week ago with intense pain and had to go to the Hospital. I knew I had Crohn’s but four years of Holistic meds( after Doctor’s methods caused bad reactions) and etc. I was doing great and I was thinking maybe they misdiagnosed me. Then it hit. I had to take antibiotics where it had given me an infection. I am better now or at least it seems that way but wow, I realized how harsh it can be. Now, hopefully I can get back on track with my daily musings that I use to help with anxiety and more. So, Yoga has been slow but I can do a little. I am using a small bit of Tai Chi and of course a lot of prayer.
The ability to read people can be hard. In the last few months, someone who has tried to destroy my reputation, my life and my ability to even write or do art because they are like a non stop plague has really affected me. Now, even with the ones they are “allowing” to speak to me because they think they succeeded in destroying me have fake faces and black hearts. They can smile all day and fill it with I love you’s. I believed it before because I loved so deeply but now I can see it for what it is. Fake. However, I did a lot of prayer, breathing and meditation this morning and I am not going to let them win. I am going to soldier on as they say and write, work on art, do my photography even if it means standing it alone. Better that than to be caught up again in a pit of snakes. It is hard because I am a kind person but so many times it is those with good hearts who get trampled on. All I can say is if you find yourself in my position, get the steel plated armor on and fight back by being as strong as you can. Let go of the toxin and let love for yourself take over. I hate when I rant like this but I hope to maybe help someone else who is facing what I have and encourage them. SOLDIER ON. Do NOT give up. 🙂
