California Fires…continue…

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 […]

Share Your World … December 25th 2017

Can you believe where we’re at now this year?

What caring thing are you going to do for yourself today?

Honestly, I am going to sleep…I do not care what anyone thinks…I’ve been running about and my body is just exhausted! I need a good sleep! We went away for Christmas and spent a couple of days away and I didn’t sleep well at night. I’ve also got eczema and with the warm weather, it’s been driving me nutty!lol

List at least five of your favorite spices? (excluding salt and pepper)

  • Mint – Especially during Winter for some reason.
  • Spaghetti spices! I love just smelling them…I’m not weird or anything,lol
  • Cinnamon…Yummy!
  • Thyme
  • Any Spice that makes me think of a specific food…I’m starting to notice a trend!lol

What can you always be found with?

Well if we’re not going to get into anything to personal. I feel bad for saying this but I can pretty much always be found with my phone, but a lot of the time it’s on silent…Which I cannot tell how much annoys other people.

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

It;s funny because I got my inspiration this week from being let down, pretty much constantly, for years by my “best friends”. This week though I just stopped caring. They are the ONLY people I have not heard from all Christmas and even though there were days I was spare when one of them was visiting. She’s seeing the people she always sees when comes out here, and she STILL didn’t even send a text message?! I may have written a passive aggressive type Facebook message saying that I was back and that the Christmas messages people sent to me while I was did get through.

Saying Goodbye

This weekend (and today) brings about the end to World Mental Health Week and what a marvellous week it has been! Sharing and caring people…Just sharing and caring! ❤

At the moment this post is being posted I am also with other women and we are #womenboycotttwitter after Rose McGowan was temporarily banned from Twitter after talking about her disgust over the whole Harvey Weinstein debacle.  Now it may seem a little weird to “go silent” on Twitter after Rose was made silent. However I get it, the less people on Twitter the less people seeing the ads that pay for Twitter to exist. Apparently it was supposed to be on Friday, but I’m not sure too many people thought of the time differences. I feel like a whole weekend would have been better, but it’s better than nothing!

Please, stay single

There are these people that I know who clearly fooling around with each other behind their partners back. I have lost respect for these people over time and I just have very little to do with them anymore. The whole group is just a mess.

It doesn’t just bug me because they are cheating with each other, but it’s also because one of them was single when they met the other originally. They had just gotten out of an engagement and at the time the other person was married. Yet, even though there were obvious feelings between the two: Person A didn’t even leave their marriage until their partner got an amazing job ‘overseas’ and they just didn’t want to put the effort in. Which is when I really started to lose respect since their partner had given up so much to begin with. It was SUCH a cop out.

Person B then started dating nearly all of Person’s A closest friend while, at least, emotionally cheating on them all with Person A and got engaged to one of them. Then conveniently Person A marriage split up and Person B with their fiance…Coincidence.

STOP USING PEOPLE! NO ONE DESERVES THAT!

I have a hard time not saying anything because I’m one of those people who hates injustice of any type. Which means the best that I feel like I can do is just stay away since no one else in the group seem to honestly care and they even called Perfect B “Perfect” and that they could never think of an insult good enough. So it continues.

What the actual…

What this all comes down for me is to tell people. Please, for the love of god, don’t date someone because you can’t be with the person you want too be with. Please don’t date someone because you’re lonely and you don’t think you can’t do any better…You partner doesn’t deserve that. When you start to date someone, please make sure this is what you really want. You may not be sure that you even want to date, but make sure you don’t drag someone else through it. This world is so small, they are plenty of people out there for you.

Dating someone else because you are alone or because you want to be with someone else is not a strong thing and it’s not what a strong person does….Or a good person and definitely not what “perfect” people do either. You know why? A strong and a good person knows that they are okay by themselves. They know that they are okay being alone and that they believe they will find someone, they don’t need to use anyone else. They also know the love they are getting from their family and friends is enough, or the love they have for themselves IS enough. (If it isn’t, maybe look into that…That’s a post for another day though!).

On some level I actually get it, for some people it is very hard to think of others and other people, and seeing from their point of view. Unless they are actually treated this way themselves. They they just don’t care enough to get it. Too me, personally, it also speaks on a level of having no heart and being some kind of a sociopath as well. There’s no heart or kindness to use another human being in such a way. I think there is something off about people who do that, especially people who repeatedly do it.

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!lol…Love yourself and each other ❤

I don’t “care”

There is something that really intrigues me and I would really love to hear your opinions on it or if you are one these people who do this, to please explain what this need this.

What is with this seemingly big NEED that some people have to write on news articles or ‘entertainment’ type articles about how they “don’t care” they have “real news to read” and is this article really “newsworthy”. What are they doing there then? Personally, when I see an article I’m not interested in I skip pass it. I actually asked someone this question because I find it really intriguing, that whole thought process. Of creating traffic for something you don’t care about, rather than creating traffic and focusing on the things you do. Then boasting about how you don’t care, like it’s some great feat and accomplishment that you just HAD to write that?

I am like 99% sure no one is making these people read these articles. So why are they even reading these articles for? Do they not have enough to care about? Do they have a lot of free time that they have the time to focus on things they don’t care about?

I have always said that the Kardashians are being kept in our public eye, not because of their fans, but because of their haters. They are making their numbers and money from their haters. For example, the amount of articles I have seen people comment and re-share articles about them is literally in the thousands…but…they “hate” them? Yet my brother and his friends seem to really like them, yet I rarely hear them talk about them. I only found that they like them last year, when my brother was over for a visit and there was a Kardashian marathon on the tv…We had to watch it all day -.-

For those who may not know what I mean by “traffic”. It means when you click on a article online, or you comment online, you are creating “traffic” that the website keeps tracks of to see, what people are interested in and what the public is talking about. They don’t care what you deem “newsworthy” or what “real news” is, or if you like the article or not. What they focus on is the numbers that each article receives. So by you “not caring” and clicking on a article you don’t “care” about, it creates interests and so that site will continue to talk about it.

Even take WordPress, how many of us have edited our Blogs and write about topics that interest people more than what we actually want to write about, based on the views, discussions and likes we have gotten for our posts.

Please discuss!

National Sorry Day

May the 26th is a poignant here in Australia it is “National Sorry Day”. This day is significant because it symbolises the Day where the Australian Parliament publicly apologised to the Indigenous people of Australia (the Aboriginal people).

It’s a time to reflect on what the Settlers did to the Indigenous people of this land, not only what we did to their land when we came over to “settle” Also the “certain situations” that have happened over the years. (I’m at Work right now, but on Friday I should be able to write more about this). National Sorry Day is also a part of Australia’s Reconciliation Week.

 

Yay! Mental Holidays!

The last couple of months I had full on weekends and this past weekend was going to be no different. I’m one of those people who feels like when I’ve been invited to something…I have to go or at least if I can’t go send something or get them something next time.

This weekend I said NO!lol

It was brilliant, it was amazing, it was exactly what I needed. Sometimes you just need a break, sometime you just need to turn into a hermit. It’s that time of year where I don’t think you “required” to attend everything, it’s too cold!

I am breaking out the wine tonight!

Here are some other links, for those days when you need a mental holiday:

Share Your World … Week 19

Share Your World

Share Your World … Week 19

  1. You win a pet monkey but this isn’t just any old monkey. It can do one trick for you whenever you want from getting a pop out of the fridge to washing your hair. What would be the trick?Oh, my goodness, what a choice! It’d have to be something to do with when I suffer from my sciatica. It’s hard to get up and down. Maybe if they could just help me to get dress when I’m suffering from it? That would help so much! It gets really frustrating when I am used to getting dressed in 10 minutes and then it suddenly take 30 minutes with no warning.
  2. What caring thing are you going to do for yourself today?This might sound a little weird, I’m a casual where I work. So I don’t get set days, but I had a set work today. Sometimes the most caring thing I can do is go to work. I get money that helps me live not a rich life, but one where I can proudly help my family out with bills and food. Plus I am planning on having some junk food when I get home,lol
  3. What color do you feel most comfortable wearing?
    I have to say that lately I have been wearing a lot of Red and it has been such a hit! I remember years ago somebody telling me that Red was my power colour and it’s definitely been proving itself worthwhile!
  4. Complete this sentence:  When I travel I love to….
    Look at the scenery. It’s one of the reasons I want to travel to Rome and Greece, it’s on my bucket list to see all of their ancient travels! I take a lot of photos of the scenery of a place.
