I wish

I wish sometimes that when someone tries or makes one or a step towards a better world, people could just be grateful (*insert long sigh here*)…Just because someone doesn’t do all or find a total solution, right away. This doesn’t mean it makes it okay to degrade what they have done. Too make people aware is a good first step.

Do they have a “total solution”? No.

Are they now aware of the issue? Yes

First Day of School!

So today would have been the first week of a new school/TAFE year for me, but for the whole month of February I am working full-time, so I can’t join my class mates right now.

I LOVE to study, I think even if I was to work all the time, there would still be something that I would want to learn about. I sometimes wonder if that’s part of the reason I like being a Librarian because Libraries have so many different items, book – fiction and non-fiction, audio books…Every-time I go into my volunteer work there is always a new author or topic I learn about.

Those who are heading back to school this week, I wish you a year of learning, studying and having your mind grow and expand.

 

A letter to you, to know that I made it through

So I made it through today and here I am sure that everyone expected me to fall. I am so proud of myself today, I thought that I was going to fall as well. Even with everything wrong and hard that is going on around me, I made it through. I made it through and I did not have to pretend once. Every single smile was real, every joke I made, everything was real.

It would have been your birthday today and I hope that it was one you enjoyed and hopefully with this event may you grow and learn even more about all the wonders with this world, instead of the stagnant life of getting drunk every day. We will never be friends, we are just two completely different people, but I still want the very best for you. I will not forget what you did to me and I don’t think I should.

My heart is healing and I have another to thank for that, he is so honest. It is something that I can honestly say that I’ve never experienced, he keeps me safe but doesn’t play around. If he doesn’t like something he tells me, and he expects the same from me. I feel safe, truly safe.
