If you don’t want to look something up, if you don’t want to talk to others, if you don’t want too do any research, if you want to make excuse after excuse. You either a) Genuinely don’t care about others and/or b) Quiet frankly, you’re just lazy. It’s one of the two, there is no excuse to not do research, to not reach out to the people you are harassing.
Pancakes, waffles or French Toast as your breakfast favorite?
Without question, waffles. I love them all mind you, but if I had to chose, it’d be waffles. I wouldn’t be able to tell you why though. I like that just that little bit more though.
Do you think a person’s name influences the person they become?
I think to some extent it does. When you think about the amount of celebrities who change their name, that we know them by. So on some level it does. I also think they we feel not a social pressure, but a certain type of pressure to be like what you were named after. Myself, I was named after Lauren Bacall. Sometimes I feel I need to be a bit more cooler…At least I’m not named Karen at this time!
Would things get better or worse if humans focused on what was going well rather than what’s going wrong?
I do believe it would go better if we focused on more things that were going well. It just does your brain good. But not like the way Trump does it. He thinks everything he does, goes well. Don’t do “going well” like Trump.
Is math(s) something that humans created or something we discovered? Is looking at reality mathematically an accurate representation of how things work?
Maybe both?lol. I think it’s kind of hard to explain, as I would not call myself “mathematical” at all,lol. It does to an extent, it also depends though…Oh god, this is complicated in my mind. I know that I think maths does accurately represent how a lot of things work, but not everything…lol. As an example, they say music and maths are very similar. So somebody who can do maths well, can also play music. HOWEVER, does that mean that someone who can do maths, also represent how and why music makes us feel how we feel when we listen to a song that makes us feel … Oh dear god, I thought…ed!lol
What are you grateful for right now? I realize it’s difficult to be very positive right now, unless one is being positive that things are pretty awful. Let’s spread the joy in gratitude!!
I am honestly grateful for the Blogging community, especially the people who read mine! I had to go away and you’re all still here! Still communicating with me, although at the moment it can feel somewhat of an overabundance of communication is happening right now. It’s good and positive communication. Even this question is positive. Despite knowing that it’s not a great time, the question asks us to think of something positive and so you do. So I ask anyone who may not do the questions this week, to read this and any other blogger whose done the questions this week and think of something joyful and positive!
I’ve been noticing a little trend lately. A lot of complaining on all the social media, or to people who can’t do anything to help. Instead of talking to the people who can, people tend to talk who can’t do a thing.
Now I’m not saying this is always the case, sometimes there is genuinely nothing you can do. But when there is, or there’s someone more appropriate to talk too…Why aren’t we talking to these people? I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again. We have more communication tools than ever before. Yet, we don’t REALLY use them.

I am not sure how many of my readers keep up with the latest Entertainment News. Recently Demi Lovato woke up from a suspected accidental overdose. I’m not Demi Lovato’s biggest fan, but saying things like “It was her choice”…Is not helpful and that’s not how addiction or mental health works. Having money means nothing, having the world at your feet means nothing, being beautiful, being young and thinking you’re invincible…Means nothing, if you don’t have the right support.
Take Katy Perry as well, not her biggest fan either. Some of her actions though, I can actually understand where she was coming from. She recently had an interview where she explained a lot of issues, including the live stream feed of herself. I don’t know anyone who actually watched it (do you know anyone who did?). Even that stream and the idea of it though seemed a little odd too me. Once she opened up, a lot more of the things she did, made sense to me.
Every type of health battle is different. So unless you have a conversation with that person, just don’t speak on matters you don’t understand. It’s kind of common sense really, well too me. This is for any health battle. If you don’t know what someones going through, breathe, take a minute and ask them. Don’t make assumptions. There might be a reason why people don’t want to tell you anything. Take Val Kilmer as an example, we still don’t know what was going on with him. Maybe there’s a reason he didn’t want to say what was going on and that’s perfectly fine, we don’t need too know.
We should just feel lucky that we don’t have to fight our battles so publicly.
❤ Please consider what you are saying before you talk with someone or about someone whose recovering ❤
This has been your weekly Public Service Announcement =P
No, I’m not about to give you my telephone number =P
I’m just meaning other places, other ways you can check what I am up too…If you want too. I’ve been very lucky lately in that I’ve been able to think of things to Blog about. Sometimes though I don’t always Blog everything. Not even about the books I’m reading about. Since I’ve written #LetsTalk and the response from that Blog post. You can find other ways to talk with me.
For most of my social media type profiles, I have a personal one AND a more Blog type one.
Twitter – I post the most random things. I usually post pictures about the animals on #safarilive animals and the most random thoughts about causes and things that are trending on Twitter. It’s very unbloggy really. Sometimes I’ll post about about my Blogs, but usually they are safari live related.
Instagram – Look up lady_lolly84 : I usually post what book/s I’m reading. Then I direct people to read my Blog and read my reviews. In between I’ll post pictures of my dog and cat. Just random posts of myself as well. The posts may be about something interesting I’ve bought or about something that’s happened to me during the day.
Goodreads – Obviously you can check the progress of books that I’m reading. One of the differences between my Insta and Goodreads. The books that I post about on my Insta are not always going to be part of my Goodread list. Either I’m rereading them or for whatever reasons it’s just not something I want to write about…I just want to read it.
I do have a Facebook, but it’s more private. I have considered making one for my Blog, but I don’t like Facebook THAT much. I rarely go on it these days. There’d be no point.
I honestly wish I could post this in Instagram comments sometimes! I’m sort of iffy with Dr Phil.
The amount of times I’ve encountered people who say horrible things because apparently if it’s been done to you, it’s okay for you to do it (see previous posts about my feelings about this here). Next time you say to someone you can’t say horrible things to others about race, sexism, sexual harassment, gender issues, because of who you are…Ask yourself when you’re spilling the same hate that was once spilt towards you …
“Hows that’s workin’ for you?
I was having a conversation with some good lady friends the other day and we’re all in pretty serious relationships and the topic come about what we used to got through when we were single. We had a good laugh especially when it come to the topic of what used to turn us off…And how little of a clue these guys in our lives had/have about us. Which is why they are not with us.
It got me thinking about one thing that would instantly turn me off. There was one ex I dated and we had a lot of mutual friends before and after we had dated. Now, bless their tiny little socks, they have this hobby, were it doesn’t really encourage a whole lot of deep thinking. It’s more sitting around for hours and “discussing” people who weren’t there. The problem with this was…still is…The gossip at some point started to become fact, even if they never talked about the issue with THAT particular person. You’d only find out what had been said about you, when someone gets angry with someone else and then that person tells everybody else what you’ve said about them.
To break it down, not a single one these guys have actually had a conversation with me about who I am and what my ex actually did it me in our old relationship. They used to think turning me on would be one sentence:
“I’m nothing like your ex-boyfriend”.
Yep, that was the big line. There was just one problem, they have no idea what he was like with me because they’ve never ever asked what happened. How would they know if they’re nothing like him? 100% of the time just on social media sites, I could see them interacting with him, just like him. Using the same language, commenting on their friends girlfriend boobs. Just from what I could see, they were doing the exact same things he does, all over a public social media site. So where’s the proof exactly that their nothing like him. Except for the fact that they were doing everything exactly like him?
I can’t even begin to tell you how many things these guys would do and say that were EXACTLY what my ex used to do and then in same breath say “I’m nothing like your ex”. That’s a whole other blog in itself.
So, readers what are your turn offs? Do you have people in your life, who don’t “get it” either?
In the past I have Blogged a couple of posts regarding a Facebook page called 1000 Voices for Compassion and on the 20th of each month there is a challenge and people write Blog topic based on the topic for that month. In the month of the May the topics “Connection” including reconnection and reconciliation.
So I will literally just write down whatever came to mind when I thought of the word “Connection”.
I think that is a really interesting topic because I find that as a general society rule we are less connected than ever before. Yet we have all these tools to help us communicate well and efficiently and yet as I have said before we have more of a society that wants to be “right” instead of discussing and talking with one another. You watch people (especially with Twitter) who bully and send death threats to people that they don’t even know. When did this become okay? Why has this become such a problem? How can someone be so disconnected that threatening and telling people that should “go and kill” themselves, became acceptable?
I have watched many “fights” on Facebook. You have many people who will literally write “who cares”. How poignant is that?! Clearly not them (that is a whole other topic though on people who want to write “who cares” and “this isn’t news” instead of scrolling past the topic). I have asked people on Facebook directly why they felt the need to write that statement, why didn’t they just scroll past and get on with their day. Why do they think what they like is so much more and better than other? Yet, when people ask them, they get really upset?
Have we lost the connection with what is really important, how can we get it back, whose to blame, is there one area to blame or is it just everything these days? Have we lost the connection with the earth, the planet, our basic simple ways. Have we become to diverse to be able to really handle and accept the differences in others? Are we not ready to CONNECT with the other different souls on this planet? Is it too much for us to handle right now.
I believe that it is time to reconnect with and within ourselves. Go back to the basics and take a long look at what we are doing and what kind of legacy and story do we want to leave behind. I believe that we need to reconnecting with ourselves every know and then, to take a hard look at ourselves and asked ourselves “What is important to us”. Do these people really want to leave the story behind of them threatening and telling people to die behind the cowardice of a screen?
Take that walk back in a nature, kick up the leaves during autumn. Mediate…Listen to what our souls are telling us to do, telling us the path that we should take. Shut out the world of the technology. and connect with our spirits again. I think that we need to reconnect within ourselves again.
I am sitting here with my best friend in the whole wide world…Jim Beam…He’s a great guy, reliable, makes me happy, makes me feel relaxed and doesn’t judge me when I get up to do my drunken dance to some truly horrible music (well at the moment I am watching “The Mummy”…may not be the best movie when you are by yourself…in the dark).
Trying so hard to distract myself, maybe Jim isn’t being a very good friend too me, all I can think about is you again…Like my other post ““It’s like Radar” that one stupid text! I’m surprised with how well I am coping, but I wish he hadn’t sent it. I literally had been thinking that day how I hadn’t thought of him all day and then two hours later…
How do other people distract themselves during times like these? I have actually never had an ex reach out and apologise to me before. Luckily for me I have a lot of homework that needs to be done, so I have been distracting myself with that and now I am watching movies…and everyone should watch this live feed…Pete’s Pond…You’ll even see me on there most days making comments, sometimes I’ll have it on in the background while I do homework…Elephants, Lions and Ostriches…Oh my!
