Share Your World, June 4 2018

Irregardless of your physical fitness, coordination or agility: If you could be an athlete what would do do? Remember this is SYW, dreaming is always allowed

I have always wanted to be an Ice-Skater, they just all look so beautiful in the ice! They almost feel like they’re floating sometimes. I have always loved Torvill and Dean, and I have their film on DVD. I was obsessed when I was a child. I’d go over my Grandparents and watch “Fire and Ice”.

A piece of clothing from your younger childhood you still remember?

I do. I have a dress, it’s kind of hard to describe, but I looked so cute in it! It was a mid blue, sports style with a hood. It had these white and black checker pockets too,lol. I LOVED it! Good quality too, it lasted for quiet a while. I had to stop wearing because I grew out of it.

In a car would you rather drive or be a passenger?

Although I cannot actually drive. I am starting to learn, but I’d rather not be doing that. I’m doing it mainly because I feel I have too. With myself and my furbabies getting unexpectedly sick and my Dad having a triple instead of a double bypass. I feel like I have too now. I prefer being the passenger though.

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

I really appreciate the people on WordPress. Commentary wise I have had some amazing, inspirational conversations this week. They have been really motivating!

Dreamers

Dreaming of far off places,

Magic spells, Freedom and Fun,

Still warm in good thoughts,

Wrapping myself up in fun times and happy thinking.

Every morning is hell to wake up too,

As all dreamers do,

The morning time is just more nightmares,

The happy images running through my head.

A big sigh escapes from my mouth, another morning, another day…Time to get up again, no more dreams…For now…

You can say that I’m a dreamer

So I recently read a really great blog post and a great read by The Zombie ShuffleAre you a Dreamer or a Realist? (go and have a read, great blog posts!)

I thought that it was a really interesting topic because it’s something that I’ve felt like I’ve struggled with a lot during my life. It started to make me think about some changes in my life and how I’ve come through them. I live a lot of my life “behind the veil”, in a way I day dream a lot. Many times while I’ve been day dreaming, I must look so unhappy because everyone tells me to “keep smiling”lol.

It’s an interesting topic because a lot of people assume that because I day dream I must be a “dreamer” or sorts. So I live in a world that’s full of puppies and baby bunny rabbits. This isn’t the case though. Last night for example, I pointed out to someone that saying “I’m not judging…” and then proceeding to judge someone doesn’t make it less of a judgement. Then they swore at me and told me to “shut the $%^%^% up” because I don’t know them. Which was ironic since they made a judgement on a celebrity that they don’t know either. It was one of those situations where you realised that they are in the little bubble and how dare someone disagree with them.

I believe that you can dream, dreaming gives me a safety net when the world gets a little rough and too hard. This might be by watching a movie or tv show where I can completely immersed into, listening to music and having a shower, writing.

Yet at the same time I am extremely aware of my responsibility as a human being on this planet.

I even did a test through Facebook Who is your Greek God parent? Where I got the God Apollo and this was his description“Your father is the god of the sun! You never cease to bring brightness to a dark world. You are wise and enjoy music. Be proud of your joy, but remember to recognize a grave situation when you see one.”

It’s tough being a “Idealist Realist”. You see all the wonder of the world, but feel the sadness of the reality of the world and you just cannot ignore it. It’s a little like having Ying and Yang scenario.
