My mum made a really interesting point the other day. Why was it when 9/11 happened, the world managed to come together. Although it happened in America only, we still felt it globally. We came together, and also came together to protect the Muslim people.
So why hasn’t that happened this time?
Why do we seem more divided than ever? I do think we all want the same thing, for COVID to be gone. Yet, some people are going a really ODD way of showing that way. So many anti-something people. I do think they want COVID gone, but I also think they’re more worried about being “right” (when they so often are not), or they want to look better (when they don’t). Instead of being like 9/11 and just being there for people. You will always have those anti-something people, but it seems to be to a extreme this time.
I could not believe what I was seeing and reading.
These families being tear gassed, the pictures of those children crying.
I had to sign off on Twitter yesterday…All these MAGA “Christians” How can they SEE these pictures of children running from the tear gas and say such horrible things? HOW! I get the delusion…How can they say the children deserve this? The parents are using them for shields? They knew they were coming! How are the parents supposed to know they were going to get tear gassed! Who’d think America would do that?
It’s funny in a way, I started to write this Blog post and scheduled it a couple of weeks ago. Every time I came back to it, I couldn’t remember the initial thought I had to write this, but everything around the world…This is my current mood. I think it’s a lot of people’s mood right now.
Fighting for/within ourselves, fighting for each other, fighting against each other.
It’s time to recharge and be kind to ourselves!
Take the time:
- Have a cup of tea
- Buy that thing you know you want (as long as you’ve got the money and it wont make you bankrupt).
- Dance like no one is watching.
- Read a good book. Whether that’s an old book or a new one!
- Play a favourite game!
- I know it’s tempting to reach for that piece of chocolate…Reach for the Fruit instead!
- Take a quick walk.

I remember two days before I had my first panic attack. I was sick, I couldn’t move without throwing up. Yet everyone kept “demanding” that I show up and help them out. I was SO not okay and I did not listen to my body and how angry I was with pretty much everyone at this point. I was sick and they just did not care.
Do I believe Johnny Depp is a serial abuser? No
Do I believe that Amber Heard being an abuser, makes it alright for someone else to be one? No
Do I believe that alcohol and drugs can sometimes make people do crazy things? Yes
Do I think his “fans” letting him off because of his looks (because we don’t actually know the guy) make them enablers and contribute to his downfalls? Yes.
“He looks ill”
DON’T BE AN ENABLER!
QUIT BEING “YES” FANS!
Let me put it another way…If that photo of Johnny was a photo of someone you cared about, what would you do? If you had seen the video Johnny and his anger towards Amber, but Amber was your family or your friend…Would you be alright with what he did?
I have had friends who are enablers. The irony is that they don’t realise it, until it’s too late. Don’t be that person! It’s okay that Johnny isn’t “perfect”, but he and we can do better!
(Although, as someone pointed out to me, that people who are looking for their natural parents. May not agree with this…You get the general idea though =P…This random thought came about when someone asked me if I missed my ex-friends and I explained why I didn’t…Realising they hadn’t really ever been there for me, pretty much ever. It’s not hard to miss someone who was never there for you to being with!)
I think that I may have mentioned this before. I just feel though I wanted to reiterate. I’ve been so lucky with my birthday recently. I really do feel like taking out toxic people made a very big difference for my birthday this year. Usually my closest ex-friends, let me down. Not only that though I wanted to catch up with people because I’m trying to get more social again. It’s working too =D
Sometimes we just see an article, a song, a quote and it “clicks” and it all makes total sense. Your behaviour, someone else’s.
Have you ever come across something, a quote, a song, article, etc? That just clicked with you? Care to share?
I am in a bit of a tizzle today and I am not really sure what to do.
My partner cat had a seizure last night and while we rushed him to the Vets and he recovered really well. This is the second this has happened and I feel helpless because there’s really not much that we can do.
The first time it happened we actually thought he was choking on something, but now we’re wondering if he was having a fit, and if he was, that means it was his first one ever, in his life. …. Do NOT go and watch videos of animals having seizures, it is extremely upsetting!
We’re going to to the Vets this week to get some blood tests done. It should both exclude and include what may be wrong…We are pretty sure that it is epilepsy. Rather know for certain though. Apparently the medication for it, once he’s on it he has to stay on it…So we need to cross out everything else.
I hate how we can’t communicate with animals, and them with us…I HATE it.
He’s been sleeping all day, but every time I get up he goes running to the door and he wants milk and he can’t have either. Does anyone else have experience with this?

This has been a rough year for wildfires here in Southern California and throughout much of the western United States. A few weeks ago, the Border Fire destroyed over 7,600 acres in southeast San Diego County. Fires can be devastating for both people and their pets. While it’s always important to have a disaster preparedness […]
