The Dragon’s Loyalty Award is meant to acknowledge those who regularly read and comment on your blog. The rules for it are pretty simple:
–Show off your achievement by displaying the award.
–Link back to the person who bestowed this award upon you.
–Nominate up to 15 of your regular readers (less than 15 is just fine, though).
–Let them know that they’ve been nominated.
–Share 7 interesting facts about yourself.

Seven interesting facts about me:
1- I’m more of a “dancer” in the shower, rather than a singer.
2- I used to have a “dream diary” and I will kill you all if you try to find it =P lol
3- I am into Reiki http://www.reikiaustralia.com.au/
4- I have always preferred vegetables and fruits over everything else, I was always the weird one,lol
5- I am actually not a chocolate person, I have to be in the mood to eat it…I like my chips/crisps much more!
6- I am really enjoying the tv show Gotham and I am honestly really surprised.
7- I have such a diverse life, I have people from all walks in my life. It’s great!

Now, I’m supposed to nominate 15 regular readers and alert them all of said nomination, but I am just going to nominate a few (possibly I would love to know more about them ~.^) It’s up to them whether or not they want too do  it.

1000 Speak for Connection!

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”.

Connection Prompts For our May Link-up

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.
