Listening. To Silence…..

I was doing more self therapy and I read about just having a few minutes of silence everyday. So, of course I am going to try it. Lol. Silly me. This is going to take some work. Have you ever tried to just rest in silence? This thing is hard because I overthink anyway. Regardless, here I was, in bed, focusing on the sound a fan to block out any other noise and just be. I did it for a lonnnng three minutes. I mean. I tried. My mind was all over The place just trying to be silent. This is obviously going to be a bit of a challenge. Lol. Listening to Silence and shutting it all out might be the best challenge in a bit. Have a great day/evening wherever you are fellow bloggers!

If you need to know anything about life or how dumb you are… ask a teen….lol

I just wrote on teen vaping which saddens me but I wanted to write a bit on the humorous side of teen life. Adults are dumb and they know everything. I know because there are plenty of them in my family to remind me of this. If you have any advice, fear not. They do not need it. We don’t “get” them and they have “got” this no matter what the subject is. If you think you need to explain why they cannot do something they want, they have you covered on that too. I think there is now a teen journal or some guide on telling you a valid reason why your no doesn’t make sense. Like 50 or more reasons. And, God forbid you try to give relationship tips to them. Just so e know, they already know how to cover any and all situations there. So finally, I have given up. Lol. NOBODY is smarter than todays teenager. Lol.

Vaping war….. teens and vaping……

i see so many teens that vape and I hope every time they will stop but I know they probably won’t. For whatever reason it is thought to be safer or less addictive than smoking is beyond me. Plus it is so much easier for them to get. Older friends, siblings, parents etc. as they will tell you will get them for them. It is sad to see how many young kids are burning their lives away. But I guess as teens, most of us didn’t listen.

Tonight I saw a beautiful albino Opossom…….

i have them at my home. The strange, quiet and majestic animals that come at night and eat some of my cats dry food. They are usually gray and black. Tonight I couldn’t sleep and stepped outside and there it was. An albino opossom. I know most find them ugly but they are funny to me. They are used to me so they will scamper away and then return when I am not close to the bowl. This one seems either injured or may have a deformity but I love it. It ate with me only a couple of feet away. I watched it and then, something I had never seen, it stopped and cleaned its face with its paws. i think I want to name it Oliver/Olivia. I never know if they are male or female. Welcome my newest home addition. I wish I had brought out my phone.

Tonight I starred in my own scary movie… plus a tiny step out of the World of fear….

In the Town of Pine Mountain, Georgia, we have a place where you can go we call The Overlook. You can put a quarter(yes, still a Quarter) into this odd looking machine and look at the Valley below. You can see houses, people, trees and everything miles and miles away. I have been wanting pictures of this machine for a while. So tonight on my way home from Columbus I decided to stop. It was foggy and a mist surrounded everything. Being so late no one was there but me. I was scared at first but I stopped my car anyway and got out with my camera. I snapped several pictures but I kept hearing snapping twigs and noises but I kept taking pictures. I decided I was in my own scary movie minus the killers or ghost. I also realized as I got back into my car that I just took a small step out of the fear that often surrounds me. It was awesom

One single Rose……..

After a very hectic day, I saw the photo sent to me. I had rushed to help my mom and did not go into my sisters as planned. My sister sent me a photo on my phone of three roses on her table. I quickly put hearts and started driving. I found out later that day, my ex- brother in law whom I still consider my brother and family, had thought my mom and I were going in at my sisters. He had bought each of us a single beautifully wrapped rose with a Happy Mother’s Day to each of us. I have to say I cried. It was beautiful. But even more beautiful was the heart he put into it. I think one of the most meaningful gifts ever presented to me. Thank you Jeff. I love you.

I am me… and I accept and receive that….

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.
