Here we meet again Struggle Town

I have been struggling this week to think of anything to Blog about, except for some set posts. Mentally, I’m done…I have not been looking forward to this week, bad shifts, having to sign up too things because, even though I have TWO jobs…I am pretty much making NO money.

So let’s chats then…

What do we do when we hit struggle town, what do we do to get ourselves back into the groove again? I don’t know if it’s because this past week and this future week have been kind of stressful. Not anything horrible, things I have almost been expecting but not wanted to happen…But they have. I am finally at the point where I am “This is It”…I have to start all those dreams now, no one else is going to help me. I have two jobs and yet very little money coming in, so now I have to start studying a business admin course online, just to make others happy.

But I have to have the money to start those dreams, and then were do you start? Which dream do you start with, do I try and finish off a book that I’ve been writing for 5 years, do I start a craft online business?

I want to start living my life, I need it to start…I feel very stood still…

I need some inspiration!

You may find that I am being a bit lazy with my posts this week, I am pretty much taking things I’ve read from the headlines and writing into my own thoughts. I’ve got a fair bit on this week and probably wont get much of a chance to sit down and properly think out a post.

Saying all of that, I found this article and can I just say these women still look amazing! They have clearly been taking care of themselves over the years, I hope I look that I manage to stay that gorgeous over the years.

Karma

I heard something recently, that I hate to admit……made me feel glad…There was a group that were pretty horrible to me and I ended up taking myself out of it. I didn’t like how I was treated, I didn’t like how others were treated. It is a kind of a group where there’s one rule for one, a completely different rule for another and an entirely different rule for another.

I feel terrible for being even a little bit happy about it, but I couldn’t help it. They are just very toxic people and they have made life hell for a lot of people and not even for any actual good reason as to why. At the same time I was hearing this new, this particular song came on and it felt very appropriate:

*Now I will warn you, this one of my favourite Drag Queens and it can be a quiet crude video, especially if you are not familiar with her work…You can watch all of Alaska’s YouTube videos here If you are interested*

Every time

I have always felt like a new Monday, a new beginning to the week, is as good as time as any to say “Goodbye” to the old. Every time I feel like I’m saying goodbye to an old part of my life and starting anew, I always play this song…over and over…and over…and…over….and over again ~.^

What do you like to do when you say goodbye to an “old life?”

The Ever lasting Effect of an Empath

Over the weekend Safari Live had a very special fireside chat that was dedicated to the Queen that is the Leopardess Karula. It got me too thinking, about those things, people, animals, that leave us with an impression forever, even though those things that we’ve never actually met before. How do they affect us so much?

Take the situation with Karula, I’ve never actually physically seen her, not to face to face (not that I would have wanted too), but through a tv screen, yet whenever I see a picture of her or a screen shot I started getting emotional. Or take the Manchester bombings, I don’t even live in the same country, let alone in Manchester, yet the whole day I was crying. Even with people I dislike, or people who have done me wrong. I get upset for them when I hear something terrible has happened, I just cannot revel in their misery.

(My super serious title is : The Moon Goddess Empath)

Any fellow Empaths in here?

I think that the issue I have most with being empathetic, is that unfortunately, I tend to “suck in” other people’s emotions and I have to constantly suck myself back out of situations before I am completely and utterly sucked in by the toxicity, and there is a lot of that out there!

So what as one empath to another, what suggestions that people who are empathetic, what direction, what suggestions can we make to one another to make our lives a little easier. It’s very hard to function in the world if we consistently let the world upset us. I have a few suggestions:

  • Make a commitment to yourself to take yourself off of all social media for at least once a day a week.
  • Eat and drink healthy…I know it may seem like a cliche, but I have taken out coffee recently and I have really noticed the difference.
  • On those days off from social media, fill your mind with something fulfilling, completely personal for you.
  • Understand that you do not have to go to any party or gathering, if you feel you don’t want too. Make sure though you do treat your mind instead!

One thing you should understand though is that being an Empath is not the same as having depression or a mental illness, that is a completely different thing. Although the two can overlap and correlate a lot.

That part of the weekend vs this part of the weekend

Could my title be any longer?!

Well I hope that you all had a fantastic weekend, mine was so odd!lol…I lost track of time because I worked on the weekend for the first time in my life, threw me right off! I stood up for a couple of people for them just to turn around and did something even stupider. Then there was also the friend who sent me this message about how Facebook reminded them we’ve been friends for 6 years and how we should catch up, even though it’ll probably never happen. Almost felt like they were trying to make me feel guilty about it, except they’re the ones who kept bailing, so I stopped asking,lol

Despite all of that though I actually had a really great weekend. I worked for the first time on a weekend and with only one other staff member, and didn’t break anything. Got around the seeing a movie I’ve been wanting to see and didn’t suffer from any anxiety. While working on the weekend has totally thrown me off a timetable, it was a great learning experience. I felt like I actually did learn things. Had a nice glass of Jack Daniels and then the next morning made myself the most perfect hot chocolate, if I do say so myself.

The best thing about the weekend was though I actually got to relax and recharge. I have had to go out every day on the weekend for the past three weekends and it’s been really annoying. I’ve enjoyed the time I’ve spent with people, but there’s nothing like being able to spend most of the day in your pj’s and just chill. Especially when you are cooking some beautiful beef in a slow cooker.

This weekend has inspired me!…Watch this space for more…
