Share Your World … March 19, 2018

What is your earliest memory?

I have a weird memory, in that if I see something I will remember it. Everything, feelings, smells etc. Sometimes a smell or feeling also make me remember. There’s a local library here, for example, when I walk in it reminds me of my Grandmother. Who is very much still alive, but it reminds me of her. I do remember though an nightmare I had YEARS ago. It’s weird when I think about it, I remember exactly what happened and how terrified I was and how I could never watch Mr Squiggle the same again!

Which way does the toilet paper roll go? Over or under?

Over…I think…I’m pretty sure I prefer over.

What makes you feel grounded?

It depends on what is going on with me, sometimes listening to music, playing with my dog helps. Other times it might be just having something funny to listen too on in the background, get my head together.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

I’ve been having a rough this week, but just knowing that I am actually alright, helps…It’s just my anxiety playing up and I was doing so well, but then I got a call saying my cholesterol is a little high. So even the most smallest of things has been making me smile, because I am trying to worry less…Seriously I felt I was doing better until Wednesday -.- I really really…REALLY wish I had never gotten that call….SO just getting up and going to work to distract myself has made me happier.


Like peas in a pod…

As mentioned with my February Goals I mentioned how I was going to look into different types of Anxiety apps. This is my write up about what I found. I hope it helps someone else.

Calm: This is probably one of more popular phone apps which helps with anxiety. It comes with an average 4.6 rating. They do have quiet a selection half of which is free and unfortunately the rest you do have to pay for. I managed to find a few things that I found helpful to begin with. The unfortunate thing is that you can only go so far along. Then you have to end up paying for more things. I did enjoy the different types of sounds they had to offer. They had people read audio books as well, which I found nice. Especially the Stephen Fry reading!

Overall rating: I would say that it’s probably a 7/10 … It’s good if you’re looking for something that’s free to an extent. If you want to take it further you will struggle and that can get frustrating.

Atmosphere: I have personally really enjoyed using this one. The basic premise for this one is that you can select different types of sounds. I have been using the one as I fall asleep.  It’s just that though, it’s just sounds. There’s no mediation instruction or anxiety instructions. You can also put a timer on it as well, so it turns after a certain amount of time.

Overall rating: I would highly recommend this one if you need help sleeping. There is such a selection of music and background music.

MeditateBot: This is, I believe, a Facebook app…My first clue should have been “Bot” in the title. Too break it down, it sends you messages to your private Facebook messenger. Inspiring Quotes, healthy tips etc … However, it will just randomly send it to your messenger. Every time I went to put my wifi on I’d have 5 or 6 messages all different kinds.

Overall rating: I guess if you need a little “pick me up” the quotes and the little facts can help, but it wouldn’t be good in an “emergency”. Unlike sounds/voice as well you can’t really sit and listen to it.

*At the moment my personal favourite one is Atmosphere. I use it mainly to help me fall asleep. That’s when I start to have the most issues with my anxiety.*

The Facts of the Matter

Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt. Not sure how to participate? Here are the steps to get started.

via Fact — The Daily Post

When I watch people today…I wonder to myself…Why do people seem to think that their opinion is a fact? When they don’t agree with that person, the other person’s opinion is “invalid”.

Every opinion is valid, because that’s what they are…an opinion. You’ve looked at the facts and made an opinion about them. This is the thing about facts…A fact cannot be changed, how you perceive it though is an opinion. Human Beings have a tendency to do that a lot. Change a fact to suit themselves.

Take, for example, the whole Trump mess…How one thing is not okay for Hilary to do, but perfectly fine for Trump to do? Now the facts of that matter do not change, they both do something horrible, yet one is worse than the other?

Trump paying for sex with a hooker while his wife is nursing, is somehow better than Bill Clinton having consensual sex with Monica? Sure, to some and their opinion Clinton will always be worse. I do wonder if their partner did to them when Bill and Trump did to their wives, which one would they really think is worse?


One person you like, doesn’t mean that the person you don’t like, doing the exact same thing makes only one of them worse…Same is Same…That is a fact!


Share Your World, March…Week 2, 2018

Share Your World

If a distant uncle dies and you were always his favorite and leaves you $50,000 (any currency) in his will, what would you do?

I would probably give a couple of thousand to my Mum, Dad, Brother and partner…I would go somewhere, maybe too Queensland and have a proper holiday. The rest I would put away for a “rainy day”.

What sound or sounds do you love?

  • Birds chirping
  • Hearing the lazagne packet open
  • If I hear music and it fits my mood…I LOVE that!

What’s your middle name?  Why?

I am a weirdo…I have no middle name! My mum does, but my Dad and brother also do not have a middle name…and I am trying to negotiate with my partner that if we have a boy, I can have the name ‘Joseph’ in there somewhere. Can anyone tall me how I can convince him? He has a cousin-in-law with the Joseph and he doesn’t want to repeat.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

It’s been an interesting week. I’ve been getting shifts at work again, which have made me happy…My body has been randomly stiffening up and loosening. I’ve been getting together a lot of things that are crafty and are inspiring me to craft again. Yet, I don’t have enough and I have SO many ideas, that it’s stopping me,lol.

Interesting week

Self Love

Some of you may remember that last month I wrote (in two parts) some answers to “Self Love” type questions…From that I decided with Question 17 that I was going to continue with the question for a month.

20 Journal Questions for Self Love

17. Schedule times throughout the day when you will give yourself a pat on the back. Tell yourself how good you’re doing. Tell yourself how much you appreciate your hard work. Set alarms on your phone to remind you. At the end of the day, write down how each affirmation made you feel. Write down how each affirmation changed your mood or actions.

March Goals

Lets Go Start GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

  • Write up about the Anxiety apps that I have found about over the last month. I will try and do this in next couple of weeks.
  • Get some craft supplies to start crafting ideas I’ve seen.
  • Make sure my Winter clothes fit me…(We’re in Autumn at the moment, heading into Winter).
  • Look into how to start drawing…I am such a visual person and I have wanted to start learning how to draw…I think it’d be perfect!…I’m also open to any suggestions.
  • Look into doing a pyjama movie night for my birthday.
  • Look for a frame that will fit 4 A4 size pictures in.

Februarys Goal…Tick or not too Tick?

  • Last month I got rid of a lot of clothes and accessories. This month I want to go through my technologies, for example, my computer and phone. To get rid of any old and useless files/photos etc.

This one has been great! I have saved SO much space on both my computer and my phone. I did not realise how many old files I had saved or just had had nothing to do with anything anymore. I also saved a few things on backup via an external terabyte. I think this is something I am going to start doing at least once a year now. I also went through my saved/bookmark pages and got rid of a few of them…A lot of the links were either broken, or were a completely different site altogether!

  • Look for a 4 space A4 photo frame in one.

I didn’t even get around to looking for one to be honest…I’ll have to leave that up to March!

  • Organise my photo albums.

I have been going through and have organised quite a lot, I didn’t realise how long it’d take. I’ve got so many doubles and photos that I don’t want in photo albums. It’s a really lengthy progress.

  • RENEW MY PASSPORT!!! I really need to get this one done!

I did it…It was so quick and easy, I don’t know why I waited for so long. It was expensive though. When I think about it though, its over at least a 10 year period, so it’s quiet cheap really. Well technically it’s about 13 years, because there’s an expiry date on your actual passport, but you still have a couple of years after that to renew it. It might be different for different countries. Even though my old passport expired in 2015, I can still use it until August, in Australia, this year for identification.

  • Compare Anxiety Apps:

I have used a few over the past month or so. So I’ve decided to write up about them in a Blog Post, later this month.

  • Write a post for my category “The Nerd Life”…I haven’t written one for a long time!

I did this one too =D It was one of my popular posts of the month as well. Created some interesting discussion. You can find it here at “It’s a hard-knock life”
