Reading day! ……. I hope I get to read a lot of yours as time allows!…. thanks for all the wonderful writing we can pick from…..And the beautiful pics….

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!

I knew that pain was from something…..

Turns out I have an Ulcer. And I have to say the pain was so bad that I could not eat much or write or even drink my fave coffee! It is from stress and anxiety. Being an Empath/Discerner at times like these can actually be physically a drain on the body and i have been trying to keep a sunny path away from toxic people but I love and I am loyal so I worry when people are hateful that I am close to or punish me by not speaking. But went to Doc today and got something to hep for today (not pain meds) and start my medicine tomorrow. I hated not being able to write but I hope now I can get back on track. Have a great day/evening. !

Winter, Spring, Summer & Fall… we get it all….in a week. Almost all of the time. Except Summer…………

Soooo, this week we got rain, temps in the 70’s and almost 80 one day. We had a huge tornado hit our town and followed that with cold temperatures. Then the next day was mix. 30’s in The a.m., 70 during the day along with some rain in the evening and last night we had a freeze warning. Summer of course is always va steady 100 plus degrees daily. So, if you ever go to a home in Georgia and you see what we wear, do not be surprised that we keep all weather clothing out year round. That way we can just pull out three sets of clothing for the day. Lol. I was raised in the North and Weather there was pretty much like Seasons are supposed to be. Lol.

Today is Reading Day! So excited…….I hope I can fit in a good bit and enjoy your writings, photos and More!

Today is the day I get to really take some time and go check out some of the things I may have missed. I try to do it at least twice a week and check out some daily but I get so excited when I have a few hours to do it! I find the. BEST stuff on here! Such talent, raw emotion and beauty as well as pain but all of it has its own beauty! Thank you all! Have a great day/ night!

The stress is getting strong on some days…..

Wow. I am trying really hard to be positive but sometimes the stress and anxiety get to me. I am wondering how many others are feeling the overload. Then on top of that, the empath part of me is topped off from the chaos of other minds just bringing in tons of input. I love my Yoga, prayer, meditation and trying to keep it together but sometimes it seems no matter how much I work to be positive is when, bam! I get knocked back a bit. But still hanging in there! Have a great day/evening wherever you are! 🙂

Inner peace in an outside chaotic World……

The stress had gotten pretty bad so I had to seek intervention because I seriously thought I was losing it. I hope this might help someone else out there because it has helped me a good bit. I am not at 100 but I will take any at this point. Anyway, the Yoga, prayers, meditation and all of that kept the stress in my mind at bay but it was still bad. So, from the Inner Counseling sessions I learned and apply these daily now. 1. Think positive. Truly replace every negative with a positive. 2. STOP letting people get to me. Especially when I KNOW it is intentional. Instead of letting it eat at me, think of it like a movie. I am at war and I am determined to win becauseI want the victory. 3. Truly just let it go, whatever it is if I cannot change it. I just visualized a paper boat filled with all my troubles, loaded down and I placed it in a stream of clear water and watched it flow away. It takes a lot to train your brain but it can be done! 🙂

I found one… the ever elusive family teen… and it spoke…there is hope after all…

I have a lot of teens in our huge family and they are all over the place and doing “their” thing and well, being teens. But the most wonderful thing happened the other day. After the last couple of years off having to hunt for them in their houses like children hunt for Easter eggs, i would find them but they would have their phone on or smile and just tap at their social media (code for be with you in a sec. broken down to mean never). So, I had really gotten to the point of just not bothering them other than to wave hi when I would see one of these elusive creatures. BUT! Here it comes! I went to a sisters the other day and one actually emerged! Like a real life version. Actually looked in my eyes and smiled.

Then she spoke. Words. Sentences. Actually conversed with me as did her brother. I took pictures. I smiled back. It was such a beautiful 3.2 minutes. There IS hope after all!!!!!!!!!!!

To love as they are….does not mean changing everything…

Yes, I am on a roll today but I am angry at all of the crap going on just to please people. Like the saying goes, you cannot please all of the people all of the time. Well, no you can’t. My peeve is this. Now we have to be careful not to offend anyone over anything. I say if you don’t like it walk away from it. If you want to be straight, gay, transgender, bi sexual, whatever, that is your choice as an adult. But I do not believe it has to be changed so a woman cannot be called a woman, or a man, just that. A man. That we have to change labels from he or she or whatever new labels are being made. If people want new titles, fine. But do not deny those who choose the tiles we have known all our lives. Our Nation needs to stop now and if we want changes, fine. But also respect those who are happy being “identified” as a man or a woman. I would say I am sorry but I am not. It s why I have not been writing because I didn’t want to offend anyone but I am OFFENDED. The difference is, I am stating how I feel not trying to take anyone else’s beliefs or right from them.

WE, the People, of America, need to COME TOGETHER…..

I usually stay off the subjects I am on today but sorry I am just so flustered with our Country right now. WE are Americans. In a Country filled with freedoms and things other Countries envy and want. BUT, we got here by fighting for it. TOGETHER. No matter our race, creed, beliefs, differences, we need to stand as one or we may lose our beloved Country, as it stands, one nation, under God. (Whether you believe in him or not that is what it says) I love my fellow Country men and women. I love my Country. I HOPE we can and will ALL come together as one.

What a Wonderful Day……

It has been sunny with no rain for a week now. I am excited that even though it can get really cold at night it is a very nice temperature during the day. The warm sun is surrounding everything. Little bits of re-growth are starting to come up from last year. I just love it. It is amazing how the bright sunny days just seem to make things better. Less gloom and more smiles. So grateful for beautiful weather!
