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.

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.

A win for the Empaths.. Oh you Pit of Vipers….Lol…

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 !

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!

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.
